Like so many other people, my fiancé and I found Le Quartier Sonang through Trip Advisor. Please do yourselves a favor. Look no further. This B&B is incredible. The owners, Frank and Oki, are the absolute definition of hospitality.
From my first correspondence, I knew that our stay would be great. All of my questions were answered in a few emails. A bonus was when Frank suggested several attractions and restaurants that we might want reservations for ahead of time. Without this help, our time in Amsterdam wouldn't have been so smooth.
The B&B is tucked onto a quiet residential street just outside the main center of Amsterdam. All the major attractions are just a few minutes walk. I think there are only two available rooms so an early reservation is a must. We stayed in the suite overlooking the courtyard; I don't think we could have made a better choice. Both of us enjoyed eating a delicious breakfast while looking out over the balcony. The bed was fantastic - so soft, yet there was still enough structure for a good sleep. And the shower was amazing too. You could not ask for a better room.
But the best part of our stay was Frank and Oki themselves. As soon as we arrived, Frank sat us down to orient us to the city. He made several excellent attraction and dining suggestions. Our fantastic experience in Amsterdam was in large part due to Frank's input. In addition, I know I was a trying guest during our stay. We had several special issues that other B&B owners probably would not have taken in stride. But Frank and Oki, no matter how much I tried their patience, always were ready with answers and smiles. I am so appreciate of their gracious help.
Please do yourself a favor. Stay at Le Quartier Sonang. You will have an amazing time.
