We stayed here for 5 nights in May 2014. The location is perfect: a couple of blocks from the major museums of Amsterdam, a reasonably short walk from downtown but in a quiet neighborhood, right on the tram and bus lines to the airport and the train station. Our room was beautiful, with a shared balcony overlooking the back yard. Karel keeps the kitchen stocked with delicious food, and you can use the kitchen any time, which is much better than having to be there for breakfast at a certain hour. You can rent a bicycle or get your laundry done. Karel is very helpful. This place has a very warm, peaceful feel to it; highly recommended!
