“Another wonderful stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Our second time in the Barangay and another wonderful experience. This time we stayed in one of the Patio Rooms. Not the biggest room in the house, but cosy and comfortable just the same. Although the room is not ensuite it does have a private bathroom.
We were served breakfast in our room, and Edwin produces the tastiest and prettiest breakfasts (complete with orchid flower!). Thanks Edwin!
As always Wimmo and Godwin were so helpful. We wanted to travel a little bit outside Amsterdam this time, so WImmo suggested we visit Zanze Schans, the wonderful village with windmills. We also took a train to Delft and Den Haag.
I love the Barangay and will continue to recommend it. (It's also very close to Centraal Station)

Room Tip: All rooms must be accessed by a narrow staircase. However, the rooms upstairs are larger and ensuit...

thanks for taking the time in writing your lovely review. a million appreciation for staying with us again. i, EDSON, is totally happy to be mentioned regarding the breakfasts to be able to brag about it to wimmo & god... he ehh ehe. maybe a raise is in the air... he hehe.
good to know you were able to enjoy den haag and hopefully you saw miniature holland ( maduradam?? ) or at least our beach resort in scheveningen.
thanks for loving barangay... and you have indeed enjoyed our biggest ( now kitchen ) and smallest room in the house. in between are still different type of rooms but with the same inspiration, the tropics of the world.
recommended, we love hearing it..... he he he.
and thanks also for mentioning the stairs, that way our future guests will know in advance what to expect and which room to book.
we always advice everyone to book directly at barangay.nl in order to choose the room they want. we look forward to welcoming you again in the near future. tell edinburgh we are here. tropical regards, edson ( edwin as mentioned )

If your looking like us for a B&B very close but quietly situated to the centre of Amsterdam this is it. Very friendly helpful host, nothing too much trouble for the friendly staff either.
The welcome we received was very informative lots of good recommendations for eating out , sightseeing.
Breakfast was a big hit , plenty choice with good quality coffees.
Large room with everything we needed , extra pillows and a fan supplied no trouble at all.
Although we arrived early , we where able to leave our luggage , not rushed to check out either .
Overall this made for a lovely relaxed short visit to Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Upper floor rooms up very steep stairs , ask for downstairs option if your less mobile .

The men who run this B&B are welcoming and extremely friendly. Our room was clean and the bed very comfy. The atmosphere there is so laid back and the cats were very sweet and friendly. Breakfast can either be self-serve in the upstairs kitchen or served to your room for breakfast in bed.

From our entry into the building, my wife and I were warmly welcomed, first with a drink and a chat over a map with Wimmo, who gave us great recommendations. Comfortable room, good serve yourself breakfasts with nice pastry treats, but above all a staff that was there to make our stay the best. A very enjoyable experience. As long as you can do stairs -- and take Rick Steve's advice, travel as lightly as possible- and are not looking for the 5-star hotel experience, you will enjoy it. It s a 5-star B&B!

Room Tip: Room was a bit quirky, but remember this is Amsterdam.bit of noise one night, but tolerable.

Dear Jerry,
Thanks for your time to write this nice review! We are happy to hear you had a good time.
Our tropical decorated rooms are indeed a bit quirky, we just want to offer something else than a standard room..I hope you liked it.
Most rooms have a double set of window's now ( or double glass) if the windows are closed you (almost) hear nothing. We hope you had a good trip home and hopefully we meet again in future!
Best regards,

Wimmo & Godwin

My son and I booked two rooms in June 2014. Amsterdam was full to the brim so we felt lucky to find two rooms in a convenient location for the dates we needed. We were greeted warmly and welcomed by the hosts, even offered a glass of wine, nice touch since we had just flown in from Istanbul and even the best travel is a little stressful these days. My room felt like being at home in Miami (except for the stairs.) They are steep but the guys were more than willing to carry everything up and down. Hopefully, I will get back to Amsterdam and when I do, I would choose first to stay there.

Thanks JANE for a wonderful honest review about Barangay.
We feel good reading your review as it both simple, direct and good overview of what our B&B is all about... its about service to our guests and trying our best.
It is always nice to read how we have become (little) part of your Amsterdam experience.
The stairs are indeed part of your Amsterdam experience. For those who dont want stairs, then we have the patio rooms.
Thanks for taking the time to write us your feedback. It is good for future guests to have a good idea of what they are getting when staying with us.

The lovely warm welcome from Wim, the complementary glass of wine and the detailed insider information about the area straight away put us in the mood to start discovering Amsterdam for ourselves, All of the recommendations were spot on. The breakfast was plentiful and having the complete breakfasting kitchen for the use of guests is a great idea - a relaxing start to the day. Our room was across from the breakfast room and we did not find it noisy at all - in fact it was nice to only have to walk across the landing and not go up and down the stairs! When we left it was early in the evening and it was no trouble to leave our luggage and collect it on our way back to the station. By the way, the location is excellent as it is only about 10 minutes walk away (and the instructions on how to reach the B&B were crystal clear). We would have no hesitation in recommending Barangay to anyone wanting a nice, well-located place to stay in Amsterdam.

Your room is indeed one of the most convenient going to the breakfast kitchen, no stairs to navigate.

Just returned home tonight from an absolute cracker of a surprise weekend away staying at Barangay B &B in Central Amsterdam
My wife found it on the internet and where do I start , on arrival we where given a really warm welcome and a free drink whilst booking in :)
Our room was beautiful , we stayed in one of the patio rooms, full of individual touch and thought
We had breakfast in bed both mornings and it was more like work of art as well as good food.
Position wise for exploring you could not get better, easy to find and slap bang in the middle so nothing too far
Thank you to the boys for making our stay so good and we will be over to stay again :)

Ian and Jayne

Room Tip: Patio room just gives that little extra touch

Hola IAN & JAYNE.
Thanks for staying with us and taking the time to write a lovely review.
We are indeed the B&B boys..... our lives centered on giving a different type of accommodation/experience in Amsterdam. We are very happy to differentiate ourselves from other b&bs by providing the best service we can.
Our deco is tropical-inspired in the middle of cold Amsterdam... he eh hehe !!!
For those who want to experience our world famous ( or as ian & jayne mentioned - artwork ) breakfasts in bed, then book via barangay.nl and choose the PATIO ROOM in a Classic Amsterdam house with steep winding stairs included.
Location is best, in the middle of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and almost all attractions within a short leisurely walk and yet, on a very quiet street.
For those who find breakfasts in bed to be decadent ( h ehe he ), then book an upper room and you enjoy breakfasts in our lovely kitchen which is self-service with loads of goodies to choice from.
We hope to see & show our B&B to new guests as a result of this wonderful review.
Tropical regards, wimmo, eds & godxxx
