This BnB is a great base from which to explore Amsterdam. There are many fantastic shops, cafes, restaurants and galleries nearby. It was very easy to walk to most of the major tourist sights and attractions – but if you don’t want to wander the streets, you can use the wonderful tram system.
My Room was delightful – huge, comfortable, light with a very soothing view of the Prinsengracht Canal. The attached bathroom was luxurious, spacious, clean and well-equipped. The Breakfast Room was a pleasant area overlooking the garden, but for me there was a rather regimented and formal atmosphere. There was virtually no choice of food – it was fresh but not very interesting or generous. What was put on your plate was what you got and it would have felt awkward to ask for anything different or more.
The narrow winding staircase to the room was a challenge - almost impossible to negotiate with luggage - and staff were not always available to help. Of some concern when I stayed there was that no staff were “in situ” from late afternoon until the following morning - a potential problem if a guest was ill or had some other sort of emergency during the night.
This BnB would have been much better value for money if the breakfast part of the package had been more lavish.
