“An incomparable experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Breitner House ranks beyond our wildest imaginings. We had thought perhaps the reviews here were exaggerated. However, words cannot capture the ambiance, decor, drama and hospitality created by Camilla and Guido, two supremely talented, warm, interesting people. Frankly, I was hooked on their website by the offer of a formal, opulent breakfast. Well, who could have predicted prosciutto and melon, salmon en croute, quail eggs, and poffertjies - those scrumptious tiny Dutch pancakes drenched in powdered sugar - plus breads and cheeses, and meats amidst a profusion of fruits and flowers straight out of a painting from the Golden Age of Holland? Did I not mention the supreme comfort of out ground floor suite? (I would have liked to have carted the mattress home with me!) And the great effort Guido made, providing a perfect breakfast at 6am on our departure? Breitner House is FIND! Don't tell too many people.....

Room Tip: The ground floor suite has access through Camilla's shop during business hours, thus avoiding ca...

More than a stay, this was a fantastic experience. Not only the beautifully decorated property but especially the attention from Camilla and Guido. They are very pleasant hosts and will do whatever possible to help you like old friends and make your stay a most memorable one. Due to a delayed overseas flight, we arrived late in the evening. Feeling we were tired to go out and restaurants nearby were about to close, Camilla went into the rain to bring us some tasteful dishes from a place nearby, while we were sipping a glass of wine, eating some delicious appetizers and hearing interesting stories from Guido, despite the fact they had to wake up early next morning. Large and very comfortable suites with elegant decor, plenty of artwork, good complimentary wine and delicious snacks/sweets. We are seasoned travelers, have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world, but nothing compares to the breakfast prepared by Guido in that elegant setting. The stopover in Amsterdam was the beginning of our trip to Europe. We stayed in nice villas and hotels in the continuation of our trip, but we must confess we got so much spoiled at Breitner House that it created a new standard to be matched. Now we understand the perfect ratings of this property at tripadvisor and booking.com which prompted us to pick it in our short stay. We rarely write hotel reviews, but we feel like this was deserved by the special hosts we had the fortunate to meet there. We will certainly return with more time to enjoy it.

Room Tip: There are only 2 suites. We stayed in the one on the upper floor which was very nice and with a huge...

My wife and me recently stayed out Breitner House for four nights. This turned out to be our best ever holiday experfience. We were made to feel very welcome and very special. Our host Guido absolutely delighted in cooking up a very special breakfast for us every morning, nothing was to difficult and my wife and me thoroughly enjoyed trying and tasting all different dishes and drinks served up. The bathroom was like you here in a royal palace, and I thoroughly enjoyed laying and stretching out in a hot bath every day!Absolutely beautiful! Guido advised us on the best places to see and visit in Amsterdam including best places to go shopping! Yummee!. Guido and Camilla made us feel like were part of their family and we felt like they absolutely wanted us there. We did feel a tinge of sadness when we left because we had such a wonderful time. Guido and Camilla are genuine nice people and honestly you havent had a holiday until you have stayed at Breitner House. You must try it for yourself.

We have stayed many places in Amsterdam over the last 20 years, but none of them come close to the experience of the Breitner House. Truly, Camilla and Guido have created an elegant haven. The rooms are elegant, comfortable, and unique. Camilla and Guido are the consummate hosts; you feel more like a pampered friend than a paying customer. The breakfast - over the top. I wish we could have stayed longer, but will definitely send all my friends to Breitner House.

If you are weary of subpar service at many European hotels, please come stay here and enjoy 6-star service with Camilla and Guido. The rooms have the character of a palace. You will feel as if you have been transported to another age when you sit down and have breakfast. I will not provide details of the experience as it would detract from your own personal experience. Needless to say, you will never forget it.

There is a warm opulence that surrounds your entire experience at the Breitner House. Come and stay if you want an unforgettable experience.

We stayed 3 wonderful nights in Breitner House.and were given the "royal" treatment by our hosts. Our review scale is a , 10/10,or even higher if it was possible. From the moment we arrived our hosts showed friendship and consideration of our needs. We were given excellant advice and directions each day for our destinations, even though it took us days to find the wonderful chinese restaurant... The breakfast each day was sumptuous and heallthy, with a varied choice of foods. We would have loved to stay longer and even return one day. So thankyou to Camilla and Guido for our lovely room with so much ambience, interesting conversations and wonderful food.We have left Amsterdam with a sense of dutch hospitality.. We will recommend this stay to anyone travelling to Amsterdam Moya and Charles P.
