“Really cosy rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2005

The owner is really friendly here and did her best to make sure that we had everything we needed. Her dog was a friendly, curious little fellow and followed her around.

We stayed in the Art Deco room which was very comfortable and cosy. It was very hard to get out of bed in the morning as it was so comfortable! The room is quite large with lovely views of the nearby museum. The toilet and shower area is bricked off and has art deco stained glass windows which was in keeping with the decor of the room and was very clean. The room had lovely little touches like statues and a few knick-knacks lying around which gave it a different feel. Very different to the faceless non-entity hotel rooms you usually come across.

Breakfasts are provided when you want them and you can come and go as you please. There are about three flights of stairs to the room itself which is a commonality of all the canal houses in Amsterdam, so bear this in mind if you are mobility impaired.

You can make coffee and tea anytime you want in the communal area just outside the room and there is internet access provided as well.

Overall, I really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this place highly if you want to get a feel of how real Amsterdammers live and don't just want to stay in a boring hotel!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2005

We stayed here for 2 nights in July 2005. Our room was spacious, very clean and decorated in a nice, quirky way. The bathroom is actually in the room - not adjoining - but it has been done well and didn't detract from the ambience.

This B & B has a fantastic location, just a few minutes walk from the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. The tram is nearby and there are quite a few bars and restaurants in the area. Breakfast (served in the room) was fine. There is a proper kitchen for communal use right next to the room, with a fridge, coffee maker, etc.

The B & B is on the third floor, but anyone in reasonable shape shouldn't have a problem with the stairs. Allergy sufferers should be aware that the landlady has a friendly little dog and, apparently, a cat. The B & B isn't non-smoking (the landlady smokes).

Our only real complaint with "Between Art & Kitsch" was the noise level at night. A major road seems to run along the other side of the canal, and the traffic kept us awake. The windows blocked the noise out, but it was just too hot when we were there to keep them closed. All in all, we thought this B & B was pleasant and reasonably good value, but if we decided to use it again, we would definitely pack earplugs!

Stayed here in March, 2004. The rooms are on the third floor (American) of a canal house with a commanding view of the Rijksmuseum. The room was very quite at night and the bed was comfortable. It's located right on a canal in a mostly residential area and just a few minutes walk to a tram line and the old Heineken factory. All the main attractions in Amsterdam can be reached by foot in no more than 20 minutes or by tram in about 5 - 10 minutes. Lot's of great restaurants and cafes in the neighborhood. The breakfast was served to the room by the host and varied a bit from day to day but included a soft boiled egg, breads, pastries, sliced meats, cheese, butter, jams, juice and coffee or tea. You won't be disappointed.
