“Hospitality, Comfort & Location in Beautiful Dutch Design Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We stayed for five fantastic nights in this beautifully renovated, immaculate 18th century house in the historic center of Amsterdam and hated to leave. Though advertised as an apartment, you are actually getting a house: airy open plan living/dining/kitchen main floor with huge windows looking out in front onto a quiet, charming street of 18th century houses and a lush garden in the back, and a cozy master bedroom, dressing room and bath on the upstairs floor. Compact, efficient and supremely comfortable, this historic register Dutch home has been beautifully designed to cater to all your needs and wants. The bedroom is charming, with a beamed ceiling, original artwork and a bed so comfortable I wished we could take it home with us. The kitchen is stylishly contemporary and complete: fridge, 4-burner stove, dishwasher, plenty of counter space and beautiful cookery and tableware – stocked by Martine with delicious, plentiful breakfast food, including fresh artisanal bread every morning. But though comfort matters, what delights most about this place is the care with which the art and objects have been chosen. Original serious wall art, a classic Dutch design sofa, contemporary lamps all mixed with lovely antiques make it a uniquely beckoning space.

But all this is without mentioning our exceptionally hospitable hosts. Martine and Dennis are smart, personable, interesting people who are happy to help you find your way around, answer questions and share as much information about Amsterdam as you might want, and, tactfully, no more. Dennis provides a memorable, individualized canal tour in his own boat so enviable that tourists along the way were calling out asking for his price – but actually it’s priceless, you realize, as passengers in the many large tour boats gaze at you wistfully. With Amsterdam ancestors going back generations, Dennis knows the local history, and the locals know him, calling out greetings as we passed, illustrating the village-like character of this cheerful, cosmopolitan city. Amsterdam is an exciting, friendly, fascinating city, and in Bed & Guide we found ourselves uniquely situated to briefly enjoy feeling at home in it. This is a very long review, I know, but that’s because in a long lifetime of travel, Bed & Guide is one of the most fantastic places I’ve ever stayed. Amazing value. As I write this, even though I love my home in Manhattan, I just can’t help but wish I were still there. Thank you, Martine and Dennis!
