As others have mentioned, the location is excellent for this B&B - you can cycle or walk pretty much anywhere that you like. It is just under a 1/2 hour walk to the central station with bags (although I recommend the tram to Rembrandtsplein if you have luggage!). We stayed in the loft room which was beautiful and clean with a very comfortable large bed. The owner was away and his friend was in charge and he was very helpful and friendly, giving us a lot of advice on things to see and places to eat that were off the beaten track. The only reason that I didn't rate this 5 stars is that we weren't told until check-out that we needed to pay cash since the owner is the one who accepts credit cards only. But this wasn't a problem other than a slight inconvenience. This is a great place to stay!
