This was our first trip to Amsterdam, and we were very pleased with the accommodations at B&B Gallery. Susan gave very detailed directions from Amsterdam Centraal train station (a short 10 minute walk), so it was practically impossible for us to get lost. We arrived early Sunday morning, and since our room wasn't ready until about noon-1pm, Susan let us leave our luggage while we explored. The B&B is in the heart of the city center, so it makes for easy exploration with access to cafes, restaurants, bars and museums while also being tucked away on a quiet street. The best of both worlds.
To get to the room, we walked up a narrow flight of spiral stairs to a 2nd floor flat. The room was situated in the flat with access to a private bath and a kitchen and den which we shared with Susan (her private quarters are on the 3rd floor). The bedroom was a little small. There's enough room for a queen size bed, a small dresser, coat hanger, and a couple of narrow bedside tables and not a whole lot else. That was fine for us, because we didn't have too many bags, but it's something you may need to consider. As for the bed, it was very comfortable with lots of pillows. Given the quiet street and the comfy bed, we slept great.
The entire flat was completely ours from 9pm till 9am every day. Susan would come in in the morning and chat with us as we prepared our breakfast and she prepared hers. She stocks the kitchen with everything you need for a basic breakfast: meats, cheeses, breads, jellies, coffee, milk, etc, and gave us the option to take care of ourselves, which we took her up on, since we can be slow starters. She also offered to prepare a pancake breakfast for us on our last morning, but we wanted to get an early start for the airport, so instead we just opted for something simpler.
Susan's a very warm person and regaled us with her stories of the expat's life in Amsterdam. She even gave us access to a laptop with wifi, which we used quite a bit.
All in all, a positive experience.
