We spent 3 nights here at Xaviera Happy House in late July 2013. The house itself has a lot of character and is a great introduction when arriving in Amsterdam. The breakfasts were very nice and relaxed out in the courtyard area, and the cooks were very friendly and helpful. The location was excellent, in a very nice part of town just outside of the touristic city centre. It was very nice strolling along the quiet local canals early each morning, as opposed to the busy touristic canals in the city centre. The design of the houses and tidy streets all around this area is really nice to stroll around and check out.
Xaviera's husband also hooked us up with the museum pass reduction tickets from the house which was very handy before setting off into town.
The great thing is that the house is still very close to the city centre, 10-15mintues on the tram, which is very handy.
Europe was going through a heat wave while we were there, and we found our room a little bit hot when trying to sleep, but it didn't bother us that much. We would happily stay here again and thoroughly recommend it.
