“Wonderful Stay! Nice people, perfect room!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

My stay at Annette’s B&B was more than wonderful.

I was staying in room Annette. (named after the kind hostess herself)
She told me the room had been rebuild and that was clear. Everything was available in the room: a little kitchen with a microwave, fridge, coffee machine and a privet bathroom and television.

The room itself is small but for me and my girlfriend it was perfect and romantic.
The price In combination with the quality was very good! This is really a recommendation!

We slept wonderful and will be back for a nice time in Amsterdam!

Thanks for everything Annette and Jim

Room Tip: If you want a nice room for a good price book at Annette’s B&B. She has more rooms but room Anne...

We stayed in Nyaki's rooms, on Overtoom, the official "dependence" of the B&B.
The room was ok, apart from low lights and cleaning service only before our visit.
Common toilet and shower very neat, but I can't adfirm the same for the cutlery/mugs/pots at your disposal in the shared kitchen for self-made breakfast.

Nyaki is very kind, friendly, and helpful for whatever you need.
Considering the price, the TRAM n°1 in front of you, the lovely cats - without incurring in any problem for fur-allergy- the supermarket two blocks on foot... it's a very good deal.

Enjoy it.

This place is a danger to stay in. Exposed wires, shoddy work on the furniture. The bathroom was dirty and after a shower i felt dirtier than before i went in, also the toilet gets drenched when you shower. The only air come from a window next to a toilet, so enjoy that smell, and the skylight is completely open, nice view for the neighbours. Also have to agree with others posts about unwelcome little visitors, and also many many bugs. While the host was kind enough, the place was dirty and a danger to stay in. I have stayed in better back packers places than this.
Note: we were in the Annette room.

Room Tip: Do not stay in room Annette, it is not fit to house people, let alone the rats which live in there.

Room Annette has been rebuilt now.
There were and are no bugs in my house. Every year we make sure the mattresses get a control and also at the end of 2012 nothing have been found.

I stayed at Annette's at Overtoom for 3 nights in October in Room Rose. It was pleasant stay; the room was spacious (for a single person) and clean, the kitchen amenities there were useful for budget travelers especially with convenience stores close by. There were even two cats to keep you company.

That said, the bed took a little getting used to as it appeared to be two single mattresses put together and the separation down the middle takes getting used to. The bathroom was little small and the water pressure of the shower was a weak.

Those two minor foibles aside, I had a nice stay and would have no hesitation going back there or even recommending it to those interested.

I had a chance to stay at Annette's B&B from Sep 1st to Sep 4th. This has been the most economical place I have come across in Amsterdam after doing a thorough research for almost a week. 30 Euros for a night..........what else can someone ask for?

Very quite and laid back neighbourhood. Lots of places to eat. If you have deep pockets and want to go another step higher the price hike would be 100 euros for one night with not much of a difference in quality of accomodation.

One or two of the rooms (out of the 4 available) are not fully constructed, however, Annette explained almost everything to me before I rented one and I had no surprises. She had been very fair to me in her dealings and she would give you plenty of advices which can help you save lots of money in shopping too. If someone is on budget, I would certainly recommend this place.

I mostly ended up walking to downtown and never took trams/train/buses....walking through the Vondel Park and then flower market and then reaching the half donut downtown was always fun.
Overall it was a good experience..........the money I saved from staying here helped me buy presents for my relatives. My advice........Check this place out!

The host of this B&B was bubbly, friendly and helpful, The location is okay - out of town, but easy to access tourist spots by tram or a half hour+ walk. Unfortunately, the plus points stop there. We had a room that was still being done up. There was exposed wiring by the sink (covered with a plastic bag) and sockets in the bathroom that hadn't been sealed properly. The room was pretty grubby and we could smell cigarettes pretty regularly (either from the host or other guests). This is a budget option, so all of this would have been okay if it hadn't been for the rats! We were kept awake by squeaking and scrabbling sounds just outside the window. The incompleteness of the room (open pipes etc) made us worry that the little darlings might burrow their way in, so we decamped to a different hotel after a couple of nights. If the rat problem gets sorted and you take a different room - e.g. one of the upstairs one, this is worth a look; otherwise, go for something a bit cleaner/safer!

Room Tip: Don't take the cheapest room (the small room at the back)! It's also worth noting that Anne...

We stayed in Annette's daughter Nyaki's B&B on Overtoom in the Maxim room. As soon as we met Nyaki she made us feel welcome in her home, introducing us to her baby son, dog and 2 cats. Our room was lovely and spacious with a dining table to complement the cooking facilities available in the communal kitchen, a TV, balcony overlooking the street perfect for people watching and a very comfortable bed! Nyaki provided tea, coffee, milk and sugar.

There was a fridge in our room as well as space in the large fridge-freezer in the kitchen. You share a toilet and shower room (like a wet room, really nice shower) with the other guests; both were very clean and well-stocked with toilet roll etc by Nyaki.

The B&B is located on Overtoom, a VERY long street but just 5 mins by tram - line 1 takes you all the way to the train station - (EUR1.70 single) into town, or a very pleasant 20 minute walk through either the lovely Vondelpark across the road or all the way down Overtoom, with its many coffee shops and eateries (we found some amazing coffee at a shop called 'toasty' on the opposite side of the road about half way up).

Nyaki allows guests to smoke in her home; we are not smokers ourselves and this did not affect us in the slightest.

I would recommend this B&B to anyone on a budget who doesn't mind staying slightly outside of the city centre.
