“Perfect B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Everything and mean everything you could want in a small B&B: location, charm, view, comfort,
cleanliness, little extras, delightful owner who is actually there when needed and I would like to add charm one more time. Make sure you order the breakfast at least once.

Room Tip: Only one room, one perfect room

No doubt, this is the place I am going to visit when I am back in Amsterdam. Best room, big and comfortable, best location: the jordaan is a wonderful area quiet to stay and nearby the core of the entertainment and the museums. Bike rental a few metres far away(highly advised too! ). So, best place! Jackie and ziggy are the best hosts ever!

I searched the internet for a long time to find the perfect place to stay in Amsterdam. And I think I succeeded with Jackie O's. This is a beautiful studio apartment in the Jordaan neighborhood that overlooks the Bloemgracht canal. It is in a quiet location, but a short walk will take you to a neighborhood filled with small restaurants and access to the trams. The Anne Frank House is literally a 5 minute walk away (although the line was always very long, and we never had a chance to visit).

This little gem gives you the advantage of a quiet neighborhood, but also quick access to the busier side of Amsterdam. We walked from Dam Square back to the hotel, but you could easily take the tram. The Hop on-Hop off bus stop is also a short walk away (we found this tour very helpful in getting our bearings in the city).

I can highly recommend Jackie O's.

Room Tip: There is only one room - but it's fabulous.

After much research trying to find a perfect place to stay while in Amsterdam, I came across Jackie O B&B! Truly perfection! The location was wonderful! The view delightful! Located in the quite but elegant and trendy Jordaan neighborhood, along the Bloemgracht canal. A short walk to Anne Frank House, (which you should pre-purchase your tickets for to bypass the very long lines), restaurants, shops, a few bus lines, and a great supermarket! I loved hearing the melodic church bells everyday, and waking up in a pleasant and bright studio flat. There is a small kitchen area, with fridge to keep a breakfast and snacks handy to eat before you begin your day in Amsterdam. I was there with my 17 year old son, so while not acceptable accommodations for some it was fine for us. The bed can be either a king or two smaller beds which worked out great for us! Jackie and her dog Ziggy made us feel at home! She answered ALL our questions, and arranged for a very very early taxi pick up-even woke up to see us off! WiFi is free, as is tea, coffee, wine, and delicious danish waffle cookies and chocolate!
I would definitely recommend these accommodations, and will return if I return to Amsterdam some day!

Jackie O B&B was an absolute delight complete with a stunning view. A warm welcome from Jackie herself, a beautifully presented studio apartment, a quiet canal side location yet only minutes from the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam's famous attractions, the Jordaan area with its restaurants and bars - Jackie O B&B could not have been better and we couldn't think of staying anywhere else. Thank you Jackie for making our 30th wedding anniversary so memorable.

We've stayed a long weekend recently in Jackie O B&B and all I can say is “Just too marvelous”. We were delighted with the studio (full of light and comfort) but also with the views and the neighborhood. It is a nice area of the city, very quiet but plenty of restaurants. Jackie O B&B is just a couple of steps away from the Anna Frank Museum and 10-15 minutes walking to the center, which is a nice walk.
At the time we met Jackie we confirmed what we had read in the visitors’ opinions. She is such a wonderful host! She gave us a warm welcome and lots of valuable advices. In short words, she made life easy for us.
Jackie has been one of the best parts of our stay. Without her it could not had been the same. We hope to come back very, very soon!!

We hate to tell anyone about this place for fear we'll never get in again. Jackie is so wonderful, you feel like a special friend. Hi also to her adorable dog! The room is lovely, great view, great location in the Jordaan. Can't imagine staying anywhere else. We only wish we were there longer. Thanks, Jackie. We'll be back.
