“Great Location, Great Place!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2008

This place was outstanding. We had looked at many places prior to booking this B&B, and our hard work paid off! Kamer 01 is in an excellent location, we walked everywhere. We walked to the museums, we walked to restaurants, we walked to those certain "red" areas of town and we walked for the sheer enjoyment of experiencing a new city. Peter and Walter are excellent hosts, and Thomas, when not sleeping or barking at the mailman, is an excellent leg warmer. We booked with friends of ours, so we were happy to say we "had booked the whole place." We had the red room, and it was just lovely. The bathroom has a spacious, inviting rain shower. Just be careful with the counters by the sink! The art of the sink is super-cool, but I dropped my glasses down the sink many times. The bed is wonderfully comfortable. There is construction nearby, but I felt that the construction did NOT impair any aspect of our stay. Amsterdam as a whole is undergoing construction, and I think Kamer 01 is an establishment which has gone over and beyond in trying to minimize any effect this necessary construction has on its guests stay. Breakfasts were a welcome part of our day, with eggs to order and cheeses and fresh fruits daily. The fridge is stocked for nighttime raids, and Thomas keeps your nighttime cravings in strict confidence. We have travelled to quite a few places in this small world, and our days of "youth hostels" are long gone. From a couple who understand both methods of travel, we appreciate Kamer 01 for the finer methods of travel and lodging. We recommend Peter and Walter to all fellow travelers, and wish you well in your journeys. Cheers!

Knowing well Amsterdam for living there several years, I first chose the place for the location, in the southern part of the center area , equal distance to the Pijp and the Jordaan –the best 2 areas of the city from my point of view- and 15 meters away from several tram lines with direct access to the main train station – train every 10 minutes to the airport, 15 minutes journey.
The location was as good as expected, but the place itself was even better!
I stayed in the red room, spacious, cosy, clean and beautifully designed by Peter and Walter. Peter warmly welcomed me with some delicate cake from the best “patisserie” in the neighbourhood, Bebel Gilberto playing on the iMac of the room like a “Welcome Home” sound. There’s always good wine, juices and chocolates available anytime for the guests & the soaps and creams are all from Rituals.
Peter, Walter and Tommy -such cute dog!- are the perfect hosts, friendly and very nice. They make you feel like their home is your home.
Kamer01 is a luxury treat in the heart of Amsterdam. Greater value compared to a hotel in the same price range.

My husband and I originally planned to stay at Kamer 01 in September 2006, but had to postpone our honeymoon unexpectedly. When we started planning the trip again a year later, we looked at all the small hotels and B&Bs in Amsterdam and again decided to stay here.

We will always be glad we did! It was truly the highlight of our trip. On our next stop in Brugge, we stayed in a beautiful room at a Small Luxury Hotel of the World hotel. However, it did not compare to our experience at Kamer 01.

Peter, Wolter, and Tommy (their adorable and sweet beagle pup) welcomed us when we arrived, and we spent a fun few hours chatting before leaving to explore the neighborhood. When we returned, we went to the Blue Room to unpack. What a room! It is huge by any standard, particularly compared to normal accomodations in Europe. It was impecably decorated, and astonishingly quiet and peaceful (the hosts ensure the room is quiet by having installed special windows, yet another thoughtful touch).

The bathroom is huge, and the tub is extra deep and long. The balcony is cozy, and they make sure you have extra blankets and pillows to use on the balcony if you wish to sit outside when the weather isn't warm.

The DVD collection was much appreciated - we enjoyed popping in a movie and relaxing with some chocolates and wine from downstairs after a nice meal out. You truly have access to juice, water, coffee, beer, and wine 24/7 included with your stay, which is such a nice touch. Also, having internet and computer in the room was awesome. Hotels charge you for all these special extras, but Peter and Wolter make sure everything is included in the price of your room. At the other hotel we stayed at (which was very nice - don't get me wrong!) having two beers, a movie, a snack, and internet in an evening would have cost about 40 euros just to give you an idea!

The breakfasts were great - and Peter and Wolter were so accomodating about the time. I had a tough time with jet lag the first day, and they saved our breakfast for us until 1:30 in the afternoon.

They had great suggestions about restaurants and sights to see. More than being good hosts in that regard, though, they were delightful people to chat with during breakfast and in the afternoon before dinner. Not pushy or prying, they always let us set the pace - if we wanted to ask a quick question and head upstairs, fine. If we wanted to stay and talk about anything, that's good too.

I was a little worried about the comfort of the round bed before we got there, but there was no reason to be worried! It was so comfortable. We really liked it!

We love Amsterdam and will return hopefully within a few years. We absolutely will stay at Kamer 01 again. We have stayed at Small Luxury hotels, Four Seasons properties, and honestly liked this much better. Thank you, Peter and Wolter, for a wonderful stay.

Kamer 01 is by far the most stylish and beautiful place we've stayed. As frequent and fussy travellers, we are capable of finding fault with most places. We would challenge anyone to gripe about a thing at Kamer 01. The hospitality of Peter and Tommy the Beagle (Waldo was away when stayed) is warm without being over bearing. Every item in the house has been thought through and designed to perfection. Breakfast is sumptuous and we can't wait to come back.

Kamer 01 is a beatifully restored pack-house B+B with only two guest rooms and a spacious kitchen/dining area. The warmth and attention to detail in this guest house is quite astonishing, and is a reflection of the owners, Peter end Wolter's (and Tommy's) sense of hospitality and friendliness.

We travel extensively all over the world, and seldom find any reason to repeat our travels. But, we have now stayed in Peter and Wolter's place twice, and will most definitely come back and bring more friends down. In fact, the Kamer 01 is the main reason for going back to Amsterdam :)

If you're looking for hospitality, and a well designed luxurious room this is the place to be.
Peter and Wolter gave us a warm welcome. They even arranged a boattour for us on the Amsterdam canals! It is also possible to book a guide for the Rijksmuseum, the van Gogh Museum or a citywalk in advance.

You can book either the red or blue room (we were with four persons, so we booked both). Both rooms are beautiful designed and furnished. You can use television, DVD or I-Mac with fully supported internet.
In the afternoon they invite you for a drink. They will help you to make plans for dinner, theater or give you tips to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

Breakfast was great. Everything you wish for; fruit, eggs, bacon, warm bread, cheese, salmon, fresh orange juice and even champain if you like.

Location is excellent; in the centre of Amsterdam (nearby the Rijksmuseum).

The hotel lives up to its website. We stayed in the blue room and were amazed. Having iTunes in your room is awesome, as is the unique round bed, and sky lights. DVD library is a great plus, and breakfast was another highlight - a banquet just like on the Web photos. Late checkout was also very much appreciated, our hosts were so relaxed and helpful. Thanks Peter for a fantastic weekend!
