This was my first visit to Amsterdam and I couldn't have found a better place to stay! The location is great -- you can walk everywhere and there are plenty of nice places to eat in the neighborhood so you don't need to go too far in the evening.
Antoine and Jules are the best hosts - charming, friendly, helpful and great cooks too! When I arrived in the early morning, Jules graciously let me put my bags in my room and freshen up even though it wasn't completely ready for me yet. When I left early in the morning, four days later, Antoine packed a breakfast to go and insisted on walking me to the taxi stand two blocks away. And, neither of them would let me - or anyone else - carry their own bag up and down those steep canal house steps. Trust me, you wouldn't want to!
As everyone else has mentioned, the breakfasts are fabulous. I didn't need to eat again until the middle of the afternoon! Antoine and Jules both delight in helping with recommendations for restaurants, what to do or how to get someplace. Their love for Amsterdam is apparent and very infectious! Truly, the best B&B experience I have ever had with the very best hosts.
If people keep writing these great reviews, it won't be easy to book one of their two rooms so if you're thinking about visiting Amsterdam, book your room at Sleep With Me B&B right now!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In central Utrechtsedwarsstraat (we truly can not help you pronouncing that!) you find this stylish, comfortable and luxurious bed and breakfast. The charming townhouse was completely renovated in 2011 retaining authentic elements and adding today's luxury and comfort. Most sights are within walking distance and you'll find a variety of fabulous bars and restaurants in every price range on your doorstep. Very typical of these Amsterdam house are the steep stair, which make it unsuitable for those with a physical handicap or for small children. ... more less
