“Cosy guesthouse close to everything”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

I've stayed twice in Edwin's guesthouse, first time in the single room and second time in the double. The guesthouse is located close to the Singel flower market and Koningsplein square, it is as central as you can be in Amsterdam. Rooms are very clean and cosy with a shared bathroom. The owner Edwin lives downstairs and runs a coffee shop where you can get excellent pancakes. The single room overlooks Reguliersdwarsstraat with popular clubs so prepare to take earplugs if you are a light sleeper. The guesthouse is a great base for exploring Amsterdam especially for solo travelers or couples.

Stayed for two nights last weekend in the double room. Guesthouse is run by very helpful and friendly owners. Room was clean and pleasant. Note bathroom is shared with other room but this was no issue for us.

The guesthouse is right in the middle of the gay district in Amsterdam and its really fun and vibrant area to be in and is also next to large flower market.

Easy walking distance to all the tourist spots in the city to or very close to tram stops if you don't want to walk.

Great if your on a budget. I would definitely stay again

I stayed at this guesthouse in mid-December for 3 nights and it was quite a pleasurable experience. The double room was really lovely with all the wonderful furnishing and the bright colours, also I must say that the noise from the street did not bother me at all since I wear ear plugs when I sleep. Wi-fi internet worked perfectly, there is flat screen tv and various dvd if you want to watch something before you sleep. The host, Edwin, was very friendly without being intrusive and you are free to come and go as you please since you get your own key

Cute llittle double room in a guest house run by super nice guys. Its close for everything; clean & tidy + TV; a shared bathroom but there are only 2 guest rooms (1 double 1 single) so its not a problem really. We didn't get any noise from the street below but can imagine in the high summer it could be a bit noisy as there are bars nearby. But it is a guest house ABOVE a bar they run so what can you expect? Great value. Next time we go, we will book them again for sure.

This guest house is a great place to stay in Amsterdan. Its close to the train station and also close to leidseplein and rembrandtplein. I got a single room, it was big, comfortable bed. They have one two rooms, and the bathroom is for both rooms. The bathroom was clean, with hot water. The only problem is the noisy from the street all night long...but if you are in Amsterdan, is not to sleep, okay? :)
