“An excellent haven in beautiful Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

If you prefer the anonymity of a grand hotel with a large pool, business center and 24 hours room service please don't bother these two gentlemen. But if you care for little details as they do (like fresh flowers with breakfast every morning), thoughtful furnishings, a lovely neighbourhood and personal recommendations for activities and restaurants don't look out for any other place to stay in Amsterdam. Le quartier Sonang just can't be beaten. In fact this must be the place where true hospitality was invented...

My husband had booked this absolutely charming B & B for my birthday week-end. In fact I would call it a Boutique Luxury B & B. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed with a warm and friendly Frank with a glass of wine. He gave us a map and some fantastic recommendations for places to eat and drink which we followed and were not disappointed. The room we were given was absolutely charming, luxurious, spotlessly clean and very tastefully decorated. All the little personal touches were so special. When Frank & Oki found out it was my birthday we came home after our 1st night to a bottle of bubbly in our fridge and chocolates and a wee note on our pillows, so sweet of them. The breakfasts are to die for, both healthy and delicious, Oki is champion boiled egg maker! Both Frank & Oki want to give their guests the best possible experience and we did! Lovely comfy bed too! The B & B is in a fabulous area which is in a lovely quiet residential area and close to many tourist attractions. We would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Amsterdam for a very special experience. Thank you Frank & Oki, Katharine & Walker xx

It is true to say that, with the Trip Advisor gradings, expectations must be very high, but it is also the case that what is on offer is very very good. Oki and Frank have obviously worked very hard to refurbish the rooms to a very high standard. Breakfast is excellent (and I'm still trying to work out how Oki managed to deliver a boiled egg on one morning that was perfectly cooked, something that most hotels etc can't manage). The breakfast is obviously the product of considerable care & thought, and this is reflectedn in the whole product. Two things though (and to be fair it's something that the proprietors can't really affect); first the stairs are steep. This is common, as far as I could see, with Dutch houses. Second, the walls and ceilings aren't that thick so you can get some spillover of noise from adjacent properties or the flat above. This is a fact of life, I suspect, for Amsterdam, but I think that if anything the room at the front is a bit quieter than the one at the back. But don't let this put you off; this is a quiet neighbourhood only 10 minutes walk to one of the main tourist areas. The bed is exceedingly comfortable. And trust the recommendations for local eating places given to you by Oki and Frank: they know what they are talking about.

After reading the reviews here we had very high expectations. We are pleased to report that these were easily surpassed. Frank and Oki were excellent hosts from the moment we arrived.

Breakfast in our room was a real treat, with different fresh fruit every day and fresh bread and croissants too. Our breakfast table had a different flower on it every day, which was a lovely touch.

The room was very comfortable, with plenty of space to relax, a wonderful bed and modern bathroom. The location was in a quiet neighbourhood close to the museums. We followed Frank and Oki's recommendations for restaurants and enjoyed excellent meals.

The three days in Amsterdam passed all too quickly, due in no small part to Le Quartier Sonang.

Thank You!

Wonderful hosts -- made us feel like we were home! Frank and Oki took great care of us and made us so feel welcome. We got to experience life in their wonderful quiet neighborhood as a local would - they pointed us to their favorite restaurants and cafes, all within a few blocks. We tried 3 of them -- they were all great. Amazing Italian food -- I even got an fantastic morsel of lardo outside of Italy!

Their location is fantastic -- within walking distance of all the big museums, the art and antique galleries, prime examples of the beautiful Amsterdam school architecture, and the fantastic Leidseplein square full of movement, restaurants and clubs.

This was a fantastic location, in a quiet neighborhood, and close to the locations we really wanted to see. Oki and Frank were great hosts, and provided tips on restaurants, shopping and tours. We walked about a mile and toured the Ann Frank house in the late evening and the lines were minimal. The Van Gogh museum and Rijkmusesum were close by (1/2 mile) which was great. The boat trip on the canal was well worth it, and the start was within a 10 minutes walk. We took a short trolley ride to see an iconic windmill (De Goyer) that was amazing. One of the best meals we've ever had was at the Cafe De Klos, another short 1/2 mile walk into the city. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit... the room was great, the heated bathroom floors, the expresso machine, the breakfasts served to the room were excellent. This is great location at a great price! As you can tell we thoroughly enjoyed our visit!

This was our first visit to Le Quartier Sonang and, like other tripadvisor reviewers, we feel very fortunate to have stayed here. The location was perfect - quiet, but also in very easy reach on foot or by tram of all the places we wanted to get to (lots, to make full use of our Holland Passes!). Our room, facing the street, was comfortable and light and the breakfasts were delightful (to look at as well as eat). Above all, Oki and Frank were wonderful hosts, welcoming and attentive without ever being intrusive. We very much appreciated their helpful tips on places to visit and to eat and also the thoughtful extras, such as the espresso coffee maker in our room and the chocolates waiting for us on our return each evening! We would strongly recommend this as a place to stay in Amsterdam and hope we can return some day soon.
