Where to start? A perfect location, easily walkable from the train. This is a new place, opened in March and with fewer rooms than Peter's previous b&b--only 3 in high season and down to 2 in the winter. The whole place was completely renovated in January and February, so it's pretty brand new. It's a lovely little place on a very quiet street (in spite of the proximity to Dam Square) and at the same time in the center, so nothing is really far away. It's hard to describe how Peter's personality and his generosity and genuineness just draws you in--the abundant custom-cooked breakfasts, the little homebaked treats left for you in the fridge outside your room, the super helpfulness with tours and restaurants and train tickets--not to mention the interesting conversations and two adorable Jack Russell terriers. (It helps to be a dog lover.) Impeccable newly done bedrooms tastefully decorated (in dog themes to celebrate Peter and Tomasz's pups) with plenty of modern amenities and storage for your things. Not huge, but we're in Amsterdam where none of the charming old buildings are really spacious and it's kind of amazing how well they've used the space. Others have said it, but you feel like a welcome guest in their family and that Peter is perhaps your mom. Don't sign up if you can't climb some stairs or you don't like dogs, but you'll be missing something. A great value too.
