“Simply Perfect in every way.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

We adore Amsterdam, and this was around the 12th visit from my partner and I. We have slept in nice hotels, not so nice hotels, some Bed and Breakfasts, all unique and enjoyable in their own way, however, Dumas and Considine bed and breakfast was by FAR the very best.
In true Amsterdam style it has a steep staircase, which leads to a really clean, comfortable and homely bedroom, with a nice bathroom and great shower attatched. The suprise however is all in the wonderful second room, which really isnt a room at all but a lovely bedsit! It has a fridge, microwave (and other cooking options) a sink, tea and coffee making facilities at one end. The other half has a double bed, then a sofa, table, and television (with DVD player). Its all perfect when you return home from a busy day walking or cycling the city, its definitely a home from home, with grand ceilings and wonderful wooden flooring, and even a balcony that you can stand on and take in the view. (Not really at all like my home, much grander). There has been alot of work put into making this Bed and Breakfast not only look amazing, but able to cater for every need one would have whilst away.
Kevin is wonderfully knowledgable about Amsterdam, and very welcoming, his breakfasts are amazing, and he even went to the trouble of making us a 'takeaway' breakfast when we were leaving early for the airport, which was so appreciated.
This really is a perfect retreat in which to stay, and we couldnt have asked for more, perfect for couples but also for families too, we will certainly be back for more in the future. Although its a little way away from the central area of Amsterdam its easy to find, and in a wonderful area, very quiet, yet lots to do around, as its close to the University, a cinema, and the theatre.

Almost a year after visiting Amsterdam, i bring to my mind beautiful pictures and memories from my stay in Amsterdam Bed and Breakfast. The fresh tulips in our room, the delightful breakfast , the friendliness of the host and the beautiful room itself made our stay unforgettable!

September 4 to 6, 2009. We spent a wonderful weekend in Amsterdam at the Dumas and Considine Bed and Breakfast in Amsterdam. We truly appreciated the comfort, peace and quiet, cleanliness and coziness of this B&B. We had not stayed there previously, so of course we didn’t know how it would be – but as soon as we met Kevin at the top of the stairs, we knew we would have a great stay – and we did. Kevin is the perfect host – helpful when asked, but discreet.

Breakfasts are delicious, the beds are very comfortable, and while the B&B is in a residential neighborhood, it is close to everything.

We can’t wait to come back.

From the moment you enter the back room, the fragrance, elegance, and comfort of this place welcomes you. My wife and I spent three wonderful days there and highly recommend it!

If you want to feel like an Amsterdam local, stay here.

The B & B is in a historic Amsterdam town house with the usual steep staircase. The suite is located on the second floor. It is located in a quiet neighbourhood on leafy Roetersstraat right in the city center with good connections to tram and subway.

The spacious, bright and airy suite sleeps four and features living room (with small balcony), bedroom, bathroom with shower and seperate restroom. It is equipped with all amenities like DVD player, kitchenette, PC and W-LAN. We especially liked the super comfy beds and the fluffy towels.

Breakfast is served in-room and is prepared to your likings. Every day, we were surprised by a new breakfast variation (omelette, pancakes, yoghurt, fresh fruit...)

Our hosts, Kevin & Sonny, perfectly took care of us and gave dinner tips and directions.

My family of four just got back from a stay at the Dumas and Considine Bed and Breakfast in Amsterdam. We could not have chosen a more comfortable, convenient and thoroughly delightful place to stay. The accomodations consist of the entire floor of a small house near the University. There is a large living room with kitchen, computer access, dining table and a lovely small balcony with a view of a canal. This room also has two twin beds. The second room has a queen/king bed and overlooks a schoolyard. There is also a large room with shower and a separate toilet room. Everything is cheerfully decorated and pristinely clean. Our host, Kevin Considine, was extremely helpful and even packed us a delicious breakfast for our early trip to the airport. I heartily recommend this B&B to anyone travelling to Amsterdam. My only caveat is that there is quite a long staircase so this would be imappropriate for anyone who cannot climb stairs.

This was our first time in Amsterdam and we didn't want to stay in a large hotel. I contacted the B & B direct in December and with no fuss made the booking.

Set in the Plantage neighbourhood and in the old Jewish Quarter it's ideally placed for most attractions but with the peace and quite that comes from being in a mainly residential area. Dam Square is walkable, but it is 20 mins away. Public transport, buses, Metro and taxis are plentiful, and with the exception of taxis fairly cheap.

The breakfast is delightful, the owner polite but approachable and with extensive knowledge of the area pointed us in the direction of several excellent restaurants. We ate Tibetan for the first time, it was great.

The B & B was clean, kingsize bed, large room, shared bathroom with adjoining room not a problem as our friends were staying there.

I would stay there again if I went back to Amsterdam which was a great long weekend break with lots to do and see.
