Recently stayed 5 nights in the Chagall room - it was like staying with friends! The hosts were helpful and ready to make suggestions for where to eat and what to see. It is a very short walk from Amsterdam Centraal Station located on a canal in the very fun Jordaan neighborhood - no shortage of shops, restaurants and cafes. There are no kitchen facilities, but there is a tea kettle in each room and every morning the croissant fairy leaves a treat for you! Just one street over there are all the cafes, restaurants and bars you could ever want, and also two two grocery stores (one upscale organic - one regular). I would definitely stay again!
