“4 reasons to stay there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2005

There are 4 reasons to stay at Noah's Ark during your stay in Amsterdam.
1. Hospitality: Either Sandra or Salah are the friendliest hostels we ever met! They are extremely helpful. They provided us with everything and they gave us important information.
2. The breakfast is more than delicious. Cakes, cookies, traditional tastes, a big variety of bread, cheeses and marmalades were our breakfast every day. Everything was so tasteful that we didn't want to stop eating.
3. Our rooms were very tidy and really comfortable. There was enough place for all our luggage and we felt really cosy because either the bedrooms or the bathrooms were very clean and well decorated.
4. The neighbourhood was very beautiful and quite. Everywhere traditional houses with nice gardens.
Sandra & Salah, thank you veeeery much for wonderful hospitality!!! We are looking forward to seeing you here in Greece. Ioanna, Manos, Natasha, Stelios, Maria, George, Eva.

We really had a nice stay but 3 days in Amsterdam(and your home) wasn't enough !!!
We were so spoiled that it was hard to come back home ^_^
Your B&B was really great, clean and cosy rooms, breakfasts were superb and like I said Sandra and Salah were like family to us. They provided us with lots of maps and advices.We stayed in the suite's room and it was brilliant !!! We highly recommand this B&B because you will feel at home.
We will visit again ^_^

This was my first trip to Amsterdam and my boyfriend's first trip in 20 years to visit his family that live in Holland. We arrived to a warm welcome from our delightful host, Ruth. Immediately, we were treated like part of the family welcomed with hot tea and an afternoon snack. Ruth provided us with directions around town, insights on safe places to visit in downtown Amsterdam. Every morning, Ruth welcomed us with a fine dutch breakfast of tea, pastries, meats, cheeses, or anything we requested. On mornings that we slept in late, Ruth was gracious enough to prepare breakfast for us to enjoy in our room. Noah's Ark is situated in a safe, clean neighborhood, a few blocks to the Dievendrecht train station (5 min to downtown Amsterdam). The rooms were clean and spacious. This was the perfect start to our European vacation. We plan to return this year and hope to see our dear friend Ruth again. Thank you for your hospitality!

If your idea of a satisfying vacation includes staying in a gracious family home as the guest of people who are anxious to help you make the most of your time in Amsterdam, and who will extend themselves in a variety of ways to make you feel completely at home, then Noah's Ark is for you.

Sandra and Salah will serve you breakfast - a delicious array of fresh breads, cheeses and fruit along with eggs or pancakes - in their lovely dining room, where they and the other guests gather each morning for a relaxed meal and interesting conversation.

Sandra and Salah will share their ideas concerning interesting places to visit, eat, and shop.

The house, which is in a lovely, quiet area, is near a bus stop and a short walk to the train station. We found it convenient to all Amsterdam attractions as well as to Haarlem.

We stayed in the Captain's Room, a large room with comfortable twin beds. The bathroom is large and cheerful. It is cleaned daily. We stayed for eight nights. The experience was a very pleasant one and one we hope to repeat soon.

A wonderful bed and breakfast in a perfect location. The actual host was out of town the weekend we arrived, but her cousin ran the B&B in her absence. We arrived on Thursday at 9am in the morning and Helma picked us up from Duivendrecht Station and drove us to the bed and breakfast to get settled.
Since we had gotten there so early our room was not finished, so she fixed us a wonderful lunch while we waited. A quesadilla made with Holland cheese, onion, tomatoes and salami with fresh fruit on the side and hot tea. She made you feel as if you were family. Our flight on Sunday left at 8am, so we had to leave early that morning to get to the train station and then to the airport. Helma packed us a breakfast and had it waiting for us when we left at 5am.
Very wonderful people and happy to do what they can to make your stay a pleasant one. Would highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone traveling to the Amsterdam area. In order to understand how beautiful this place is you have to take the entire tour. My husband and I stayed in Noah's Suite which was a paradise on top of a mountain once you see how far you climb to reach it. Pack light if you are staying in this room, or you will regret it. =)
The outside of Noah's Ark Bed & Breakfast complete with labeled door. Once you enter the residence you climb up the first set of stairs and the second to the first floor landing. This is where the main residence of the apartment is, as well as the living room area, kitchen and dinning area. From here you climb the third and fourth set of stairs to the second floor. On the second floor there are two rooms in front of you and one on the left. As you turn to your right you you see the large bathroom with tub, that is shared by the other rooms.
You will also see the entrance to Noah's Suite. Here you will find your personal shower, sink and toilet and small kitchen area. Once more you climb up the fifth set of stairs to your sleep quarters. Upstairs there is a mini fridge, TV, DVD player and radio in the sitting area across from your bed. There is a wardrobe across the room for you to hang and store your things. Beautifully decorated with fresh flowers every morning. You never want to leave! http://www.dmhasting.com/noah_ark.htm

B&B's make a great change from hotel's the owner's really know what they are doing and offer superb hospitality, very friendly and good value. Coming from New Zealand it made a real difference getting good honest information about the place and people of the Netherlands. The people really make the difference.
