“wonderful rooms, wonderful people, best breakfast ever...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

We spent two nights in two different rooms and they were both just wonderful.
The hostel is very close to the center, in the middle of the Grachten-Quarter.
Its obvious that the two hosts have a lot of travel-experience, everything is just perfect!

Room Tip: Take the Tulip Room

Amazing! Fantastic position by Herengracht canal and easy to walk around central Amsterdam. A very lovely, comfortable, spotless ensuite room with a view over the canal. Carlos and Roelf are lovely and are seriously some of the best hosts we have come across! The most delicious breakfasts whilst socialising with the other guests and at the same time Carlos can advise on the best places to visit. Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Amsterdam now and thoroughly recommend the experience

We had two lovely nights at Sunhead. Carlos and Roelf were great hosts - friendly, interesting and helpful. The house is so interesting and in an excellent location. We had the Tulip room on the top floor, which was comfortable, with a good view of the canal and very clean. The delicious breakfast beats a hotel meal any day - we certainly hope to return to this B&B.

Room Tip: The Tulip Room is a climb - but worth it!

My husband and I stayed at this B&B for two nights, but we wish we could have stayed longer! Sunhead of 1617 surpassed all our expectations. The breakfast was beyond amazing, the location was perfect, and the hosts were lovely. We loved chatting with Carlos in the morning over breakfast! We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Jasmine room, and it was completely up to Dutch standards - spotless! It had a beau...

Great time at this amazing bed & breakfast, certainly lived up to expectations and reviews. We stayed in the Tulip room, an experience of exposed beams, cosy furnishings and interesting decorations, with bonus views of the canal. Carlos and Rolf are excellent hosts and very accommodating, especially helpful with information prior to visit. Both mornings of our stay we looked forward to a delicious, beautifully prepared breakfast, with friendly chats around the grand old table. Well situated for accessibility of city sights. Would love to re-visit.

This B&B is everything you could wish for, clean, comfortable beds, and centrally located so you can access all the Amsterdam sites. When you read reviews from other travellers you just hope they are accurate. In the case of Sunhead they are more than accurate. I would recommend this B&B to all my friends who visit Amsterdam.
Carlos and Roelf are wonderful hosts, nothing is too much trouble and over breakfast they keep the conversations flowing, always interesting and humerous. The breakfasts prepared by Carlos are wonderful and kept us going all day. I cannot overstate the case this B&B is No.1.
Even the stairs are fun. We will be back.. Tom & Lorna

Room Tip: Book early to avoid disappointment

We expected a lot from the Sunhead after reading reviews and it exceeded them, amazing building with such a cosy and nicely decorated and well equipped room with private bathroom. breakfast was incredible and we even got given a take away breakfast when we had to leave early to catch our flight. great hospitality and excellent location, so easy to access all the tourist sites and next to a beautiful canal

Room Tip: they all seem great!
