“Friendly and wonderful service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2010

If you don't mind being a little out of the centre of Amsterdam choose this wonderful B and B. I stayed here in 2006 and felt like it was a home from home. Delicious breakfast choices, very quiet neighbourhood and easy metro route into the very centre of Amsterdam.

While this review is for a trip in 2003, this B&B still stands out as one of the best places we stayed in a trip that was full of great memories.

Our family of four (parents & two girls, 9 & 11) rented two rooms for four nights. The home is spotless and very nicely decorated. the breakfasts were excellent, even for my picky daughter. It was a two minute walk to the public transit that frequently passed through the neighbourhood on the way to the city centre, just 20 minutes away. We avoided having to park our car in town and could completely enjoy Amsterdam's sights.

While the hostess had told us that they were in a "suburb" of Amsterdam proper and that it was a quiet sleepy area, for us North Americans, it was really in the heart of the urban residential district and was really a quiet oasis perched on the edge of the main part of the old city. The distance to "downtown" was only a couple of kilometers and the bus (or bikes, if you like) are really the best way to get to and fro.

Our hosts were extremely helpful, providing any guidance we wanted during our stay. The rooms were perfect and there was a fridge at the guests' disposal so that lunches could be packed and stored if you liked. It was also good for keeping my beer cold for thevenings after supper.

It would be hard to imagine a better place to stay and with over 30 B&B stays during our various holidays, this one stands out in all the best ways.

  • Liked — The Hostess, everything else was because of her.
  • Disliked — The steep stairs to the bedrooms (a very small dislike, really)
  • Tips/Secrets — Use the public transit and leave the car at the B&B

Simply perfect. The nicest most welcoming hosts, the most amazing breakfast, spotless rooms and such a great way to share with other guests the experience of travelling through Holland. The price is just right too.
Could not recommed this place enough.

Me and my partner came to Amsterdam on the 23/05/05 and stayed for 4 nights at the Noah's ark bed and breakfast in Druivendrect (if that is how it is spelt) just outside the city and a short train ride into Amsterdam. It was E360 for the stay and well worth the money. The room was excellent, huge and service was outstanding. The 2 owners were lovely. If you are looking for a nice, quite place to stay away from the city, i would definalty recommend this.
The only downside was the fact that you had to get the train to and from Amsterdam which limited your time there as you had to catch the last train back at night but hey, it was still awesome.
If you are travelling to Amsterdam there are a few places i would recommend seeing. They are Anne Frankes House and the Sex museum (not for the faint hearted i might add) and as for coffe shops, our favourite of all time has to be La Canna, the largest and most fun coffeshop we visited.
We are returning in November, for a long weekend and can't wait. Amsterdam is No. 1 for a fun filled holiday, beats sitting at the beach any day!!!

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.

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!
