My husband and I recently spent 5 nights at the Amphora Bed and Breakfast in the Jordaan area of Amsterdam. We highly recommend this lovely ground floor studio apartment and the even lovelier hosts, Greet and Niels. They anticipate every little thing a guest might need or want, from a bottle of wine, snacks, and stroopwaffels to maps, guidebooks, and clear directions for getting around town. The refrigerator and breadbox were kept well stocked with yogurt, eggs, milk, meat, cheese, cold cereal, and a delicious assortment of breads and pastries. The coffeemaker made great coffee each morning and there were more than enough coffee pods (and teabags if you are so inclined) and fixings supplied. The bed was quite comfortable and there was plenty of hot water for showers. Greet made recommendations for nearby restaurants (Try Moeder's for authentic Dutch food. If you bring a photo of your own mom they will put it on the wall. We ate delicious apple pie at Winkel's and bought fresh stroopwaffels at the Lindengracht Market on Saturday.) While the apartment is within walking distance of just about everything you will want to see in Amsterdam, we found using the nearby tram to be quite easy and it saved time (and our feet) so we could do more in the time we had for sightseeing. We loved everything about our stay here at the Amphora!
