Sunhead 1617 is in a league of it’s own.
I can’t recommend this place enough, even if you can only spare one night here. The entrance to this four hundred year + canal home is full of flowers and it really makes you feel welcome and comfortable - even before you have stepped through the door. When we first arrived we were greeted by one of our Hosts, Roelf-Jan. A truly lovely man, he showed us around the Bed and Breakfast and lead us up the narrow staircase to our newly refurbished ‘Iris’ room. We had read only good things about this place and we were not disappointed.
Our room, like the rest of the house, was tastefully decorated by Carlos (who we would meet the next morning for breakfast) and it had everything we needed for our four days in Amsterdam. What I loved about our room (and so did my fiancé) was the little touches - a Nespresso machine, hand painted pictures (by Carlos), the softest bed known to man , exposed wooden beams etc. These things, besides the fantastic service, only reinforced our decision to avoid the big hotel chains when travelling.
The next day, we met Carlos. Besides being extremely funny and great to talk to, he always started our day off on a good foot. His artistic flair and personality is reflected everywhere you look – and can he cook a mean breakfast!
All in all, staying here was the highlight of our two month trip around Europe and I can’t recommend Sunhead of 1617 enough. We can’t wait to go back.
