We stayed at this b&b in july 2011, not short after it appeared! From the first moment I loved everything about it- the bed, the interior, the surroundings -Jordaan is one of the most beautiful areas of Amsterdam. The hosts were very friendly and attentive to our needs. It was my 1st impression of Holland and it could not be better! There I learned typical dutch word 'gezellig' and it was indeed gezellig to stay at Amphora. We still keep the little pieces of mosaic which we got as souvenirs. I am happy to read all the great reviews now after 2,5 years and I am even happier to add mine.
It has been 2 years since I have moved to Holland, but I still hope that there will be an opportunity to stay at Amphora b&b!
