We have just stayed at the wonderful Suite 259 for a conference in Amsterdam. This B&B is perfectly situated on the Overtoom with Tram number 1 outside the door - this tram takes you straight intop the centre of town. The beautiful Vondelpark is next door and the Van Gogh museum is within 15 minutes walk. The best part about this B&B, however, is the owners - Peter and Aziz . They are absolutely fantastic and could not have done more to make us feel welcome and cared for. I had a broken foot and Peter even offered me one of his antique walking sticks to use on the cobbled streets. The apartment (Grand Sahara) was enormous, decorated with antiques and exotic finds from Peter and Aziz's travels, very well equipped, with a kitchenette, 2 bathrooms, a gloriously comfortable bed, and a terrace covered in flowering plants where we could sit and enjoy the sunshine. All furniture and fixtures were high quality. There is a spiral staircase from living room to bedroom but I was able to manage it with a moon boot on! The highlight was our breakfast. Every morning we looked forward to a different treat from Aziz's kitchen. Each day there was a lovely bowl of freshly sliced fruit, plus freshly squeezed orange juice, and little blini-like pancakes with caramel syrup (these are a traditional Dutch dish and are amazingly more-ish). Aziz is from Malaysia and is the most amazing cook. Every morning he produced a different Malaysian inspired breakfast for us. The first morning we had large prawns (shrimps) , eggs, tomatoes and spices. Yum! The next day we had chicken marinated in lime and served in a curried sauce with steamed vegetables; the next day a mince and vegetable dish, and on the last day a fried rice dish with prawns. Every dish was superb - in fact it was the best food we had in Amsterdam - far better than any restaurant.. Peter and Aziz are a great team. Peter is a fantastic source of information about Amsterdam and was very helpful, organizing taxis, printing out train timetables, checking flight schedules - all without us even asking. And as well as that, they are great company and really interesting. Thankyou so much for a wonderful stay.
