I travelled to Amsterdam for a professional meeting, but asked my husband to join me and we stayed also for the week end. We were very lucky to choose the Flying Pancake. The neighbourhood is clearly the best option if you want to stay near the center of the town. The building is a charming typical Dutch house. The ground and first floor is used as residence by the owners and the 3rd and 4th floor are two separate apartments for the guests. We chose the Cook's suite, with a nice speeping area in the attic and a large living space. Breakfast was great, served in time in a nice basket, which was left out of our door. The stairwell leading to the room is narrow, but if you know beforehand and do not bring large luggage, this will only add to the overall charm. Claudia, the manager, is an excellent host, calm and relaxed and very helpful in all aspects both during the reservation procedure, and during our stay. I owe her this review, for her contribution to a great stay.
