“Perfect Amsterdam experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

We arrived after our trans-Atlantic flight to put down our bags and go explore until jet lag caught up with us. We were able to walk from the train station but it was very quiet. Margot had the room ready before we finished our coffee down the street. She was very kind about accommodations for me in my second trimester and had great information about the city. The room was bright, cozy, comfortable, and had such a wonderful view. We were very happy to have found this gem, and at such an affordable price!

My husband & I recently stayed at Margot B&B and had a very pleasant experience.

The location is wonderful! The room overlooked the picturesque Singel canal & it was fun to leave the windows open and just people watch. It is a short walk to the train station, the Anne Frank House as well as Dam Square and the Red Light District.

Margot is very friendly and accommodating. She even helped get the luggage up the steep stairs! Breakfast was always delicious & there were plenty of options to choose from. Sharing a bathroom was never an issue.

If you plan on visiting Amsterdam, I would recommend staying at Margot B&B.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Margot B&B for two nights last September and could not have had a better stay! Margot was a wonderful host. Before arriving, I emailed Margot to see if we could leave our bags with her in the morning (even though check-in wasn't until midday) as our flight got in very early. She did not mind at all! This enabled us to explore the city without all our luggage and then come back for check-in at the appropriate time. Margot was extremely welcoming. She cooked a homemade breakfast for us each morning and it was delicious! Our room was on the top floor and very spacious. The bathroom was on the floor below and was shared with one other couple. However, there was never an issue getting in and out of the bathroom and we only saw the other couple during breakfast time. Additionally, the location of this B&B is great. It's maybe a 10 minute walk to the heart of Amsterdam! I would absolutely recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a place to stay. I found staying here to be a much more personal experience than a hotel. :)

This B&B is in the perfect location for everything, close to all the action but still quiet and easy walking distance from Central Station. Choose Margot's home for a proper Dutch experience, her house has character! She will make you feel welcome and is very accommodating and helpful. Yes, the stairs are very steep but they are authentic.

We spent 3 nights here and it's a charming place to stay and Margot is a wonderful host. The room we were in overlooked the canal and it was so nice to open the windows. We did share a bathroom with other's but this was no problem. Margot keeps the place immaculate and there is even a cat that will come visit you lol Warning as in most places in Amsterdam the stairs are pretty steep lol In fact with a bad knee they were a little difficult for me to maneuver with my suitcase but Margot was kind enough to take it upstairs for me. The Location is perfect and walking distance to many sites, restaurants, coffee shops, and shopping. i would not hesitate to stay here and again and thank Margot for her hospitality. Oh and the breakfast was AMAZING...fresh fruit, meats and cheeses, bread and eggs etc.

We stayed at Margot's B and B last weekend and found it to be such a charming place. Her home is very comfortable and we immediately felt right at home. Margot asks when you prefer breakfast and she has everything ready for the time you choose. She was a fantastic hostess. We were so comfortable in her home that we didn't even close our door when going out for the day. She was great to talk to for ideas of things to add to our trip. She is located directly on the canal so the view from the rooms could not be any better. We thoroughly appreciate her hospitality, it made our trip that much better.

Room Tip: There are two rooms available, you cannot go wrong. Both rooms offer perfect canal views.

Margot's bed and breakfast was a perfect place for us during our time in Amsterdam. Her home is clean, warm, in a fabulous location, and has great views of the canal! Margot was a terrific host - she had a delicious breakfast ready at the time we preferred, cooked eggs just the way we like, and was extremely trust-worthy of us being in her home. We cannot thank her enough for opening her home to us!
