“Fantastic Stay in Amsterdam at Jackie O's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

What a great find! We stayed at Jackie O’s B&B for 3 nights while exploring Amsterdam and found the room to be spacious, comfortable, and relaxing. Jackie O’s B&B overlooks a very beautiful canal in the Jordaan district of Amsterdam, which means you are only a few minutes away from fantastic restaurants and teashops. Getting to Jackie O’s is easy from the Centraal Station; just hop on tram #13 or #17, get off on Westermarkt, and walk another 8 to 10 minutes (probably 5 minutes without luggage), and you are there at her B&B! Her proxmity to a tram station made exploring Amsterdam a breeze.

Jackie and her cute dog Ziggy lives upstairs, and we had our own key and entrance so it still felt very private. At the same time, Jackie was very accessible and helped us with printing out boarding passes, and even treated us to a “oliebollen”, which is a NYE Dutch treat. How thoughtful.

Jackie thought of everything, from the abundance of guide books on Amsterdam to the fresh fruit and water she had placed by our bedside. This was by far the best value we found in Amsterdam. Many of the other B&Bs and hotels were doubled the cost.

Book ahead of time since she only has one room. Her canal view B&B is by far one of my favorite stays in Europe – I felt like I was living like a local.

Room Tip: Book early - there's only 1 room.

i stayed in jackie's bed and breakfast in october and had a lovely 4 day stay. jackie was more than accomodating; she made sure to be at the place when our train arrived and on the day we left, she allowed us to leave our luggage until afternoon. the room was very clean and decorated oh so well. she paid attention to every last detail - fresh fruit in a basket, shampoo and hair dryer in the bathroom, and guide books and brochures galore. the jordaan neighborhood is the hip place to be with restaurants and cute shops on all the surrounding streets. the anne frank museum is just steps away, but still on a quiet canal. overall, a fantastic experience and highly-recommended!

I can't recommend the Jackie O B&B enough.
This place is amazing and the owner is the sweetest, kindest person I've ever met.
The room was breath taking... the amazing view to the canal, the quiet yet lively neighbourhood...everything was just perfect.
Super Recommended!!

Spacious apartment with a wonderful view to the canal, in a very nice neighbourhood. Have all the staff to prepare a meal. Chilled wine and fruits for welcome. Two minutes to the centre and Anna's Frank House. Rent a bike shop in the same street.

the title says it all - the room is clean, spacious, comfortable, big windows, beautiful view of a canal street, has absolutely everything anyone can ever need. The B&B is located on a canal street, literally three steps away from everything. The host is very welcoming, helpful, and courteous, were even greeted with a chilled bottle of pinot grigio.

I loved Jackie O's B&B. It is on a beautiful, quiet canal in the Jordaan, which is a great neighborhood - whenever I wandered away from it I found myself just wanting to go back. It was extremely easy to get to from Centraal Station, even with a suitcase; just a quick walk from the tram. also it is only up one short flight of stairs, which is important if you have suitcases. Jackie (who lives upstairs) is laid-back and friendly. She has thought of everything - the apartment has an espresso machine, egg cooker, fridge, hot plate, hair dryer, nice shower products, lotion, reading lamps right where you want them - in short, extremely well outfitted. The view from the window seat is awesome. definitely pay a little extra to have her bring breakfast; she will stock the fridge with lots of delicious things (cheese, ham, even a bottle of wine when I was there) and bring hot fresh rolls in a basket in the morning. I could go on, but this is one of my favorite places I've ever stayed.
