We traveled throughout Europein September-October 2011 and stayed at different B&B's...The Bot Bed & Breakfast was our first stop and we were not disappointed. Staying in Haarlem outside of Amsterdam was great (only about a 15 minute or so train ride into Amsterdam) and was a beautiful place. On a canal and a short distance to the main part of Haarlem. The Bot's made sure to make you feel right at home! We stayed on the third floor and the facilities were on the 2nd floor but it really wasn't an issue. Only ran into another house guest one other time and we actually had breakfast with them.
Our room was right off the top floor breakfast area and overlooked the canal. They had wifi as well which was nice.
I highly recommend reviewing the video that shows how to get to them. I watched it and thought I had memorized how to get there--well with all the travel, etc I forgot and we ended up walking a long way (our own fault!) and of course the papers I printed out didn't have the address on it. Ended up at a realtor who looked it up for us and gave us great direction--again all of this was our fault but we finally made it to them.
I would recommend staying with Hannah and Egbert again!
