“Words Can't describe how much we loved this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

After reading the tripadvisor reviews, we decided to book this place for our stay in Amsterdam. We arrived after a very short walk from the Centraal Station, which was an easy 15 minute train ride from the airport. The directions they gave on their website were spot on, couldn't get any easier than that. We arrived on a Sunday morning at about 10:30AM and once we rang the bell we were promptly greeted by Edson. Edson, Wimmo and God were very warm and welcoming and sat down with us, after getting our welcome drinks, which was greatly appreciated. He gave us a tourist map to the city and pointed out all the best things to do, we asked a few more questions and he was able to point out what we were looking for. Since we were early and check out for the other guests was 11:30AM, we were able to leave our luggage and Edson pointed out a good street, just right behind the BnB to grab a bite to eat and relax until our room was ready. Once we came back, Wimmo greeted us, we paid our bill and he brought us down to our room, the Tropical Patio Room. The room was very cozy and had such a comfortable bed. Our room had our private bathroom just down the hall. We stayed at the BnB for 4 days and each day breakfast was brought down to our room at the time of our choice between 9-11AM. Each day was something new and delicious, we couldn't wait to get up for breakfast! I am a vegetarian and they made sure to only include items I could eat which was greatly appreciated. Honestly the breakfasts were so big my husband and I had a hard time finishing them, but we had our little fridge in the room where we were able to store some items for snacks later. This was our first experience at a BnB and I will definitely stay at one again and for sure stay here again when we are back in Amsterdam. The service, value, quailty, location, everything about Barangay is amazing. Couldn't have asked for a better first trip to Amsterdam! Thank you so much to Edson, Wimmo, God, Kyle and the others who work here to help make this place a first class BnB.

We stayed in the ground floor Bel-Studio apartment at B&B Barangay for 3 days. We couldn't have asked for a better place. The service was excellent. The staff and owners were very helpful and gave us many useful tips. The apartment was spacious and comfortable with a roomy bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen was well stocked with a water kettle, coffee maker, gas top and loads of pots and pans. Breakfast is not provided to this apartment but since the B&B is so well located, shopping for groceries and other stuff is very convenient.
The location is the icing on the cake. It is a short distance from the central station and located close to one of the nicest shopping streets in Amsterdam.
Highly recommended for a family of 3 or 4 and for people who find it difficult climbing steep narrow stairs.

Aloha. Thanks you for giving your nice review.
We are indeed in such a nice location without the crowds but right in the middle of everything.
The very nice shopping street you mentioned is the Haarlemmerstraat/dijk and indeed it is always voted as either the number 1 or the number 2 shopping street in the Netherlands.
Location-wise, you cant beat it.
Again, our great appreciation for staying with us and hope to see you again soon.
Tropical regards, godxxxx

We visited Amsterdam for four days and stayed at B&B Barangay. This is the best B&B I've ever had! The boys are very smart and helpful. We had breakfast in our room and when you have any allergies they make you an individual breakfast!!!

Ok so there are many god reviews so I can't add much, but it was a lovely place.

I don't think we could have possibly chosen a better, local B and B. It was perfect location, comfortable room and lovely breakfast

Highly recommended!!!

Make sure you go here if you want a guaranteed good service, but with the feeling of the real Amsterdam

We have visited Amsterdam several times and have stayed with the "boys" several times - clean, quiet, helpful, and perfectly located.
Called them 2 years later for a recommendation for dinner place as we were just passing through and they couldn't have been more helpful.

The owner is very nice and apparently is a cat lover.
The room is small and cozy, and we had breakfast in our room.
Location wise is very central, it's about 5-10 minutes walk to the train station and to every where else.
