“Friendly, convenient and cozy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

We spent two nights in Sunhead of 1617 at the beginning of april 2014. It's so close to central station and to everything you would like to see in Amsterdam; you can consider just walk everywhere.
Sunhead it's friendly and Carlos it's a great host. Breakfast it's delicious; you have to ask nothing because Carlos cooks everything you would need and serve it.
It seems to be at home, but you are in a real Amsterdam house dated 1617; narrow and with steep stairs!
We had The Narcissus room; upper floor; under a great wooden roof. Clean and with confortable bathroom. Not facing the canal but quiet.

Carlos and Roelf-Jan are the nicest and most welcoming hosts imagineable, Carlos' breakfasts are great, and the rooms, especially the gable Tulip room where we slept, are very charming. Add to that a fantastic location on the Herengracht canal, and there's no wonder we'd reccommend Sunhead1617 to anybody!

Room Tip: The Tulip room- a gable room with amacing ceilings

Sunhead of 1617 is clean, the tulip room is spacious and relaxing, and the breakfast is delicious. Carlos and Rolf treated us as first-class guests. Once we booked our room, we received an email with links to fun places in Amsterdam which helped with planning a fantastic trip.

We usually stay in hotels, but this place looked so nice and we are glad we chose it. Sunhead of 1617 is near restaurants, the Anne Frank house, and so many other attractions within walking distance. It's also located in the nicest neighborhood in Amsterdam (less students, quieter, aesthetically pleasing landscaping) called Jordaan.

The entire b&b is spotlessly clean. Very nice aromas in the foyers & staircase. Speaking of staircase, it is very narrow (as are all that we used in Amsterdam). My husband and I are in excellent physical shape and were winded at the top of the stairs the first day. The tulip room is worth the walk up the staircase if you are willing to hike up 50 steep steps. If not, choose a room on a lower floor. No tv or phone in the tulip room.

Thank you Carlos and Rolf!

Room Tip: Tulip room is wonderful. Stay in a lower floor if you do not want to walk up steep stairs.

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...
