We stayed at this B&B during our Europe trip in April 2019. This was absolutely a unique experience, especially for our kids, staying in this 17th century house. Our son said this was the best place he's ever stayed :). For the two level room, you have to walk narrow staircase. You should be able to get your luggage up the staircase. Tony was gracious to help us with our luggage. Our hosts were great. Breakfast was basic but worked for us. The location is great, not that far from the train station and walking around Amsterdam's main attractions.

This B&B is located in a quiet area; at least one of the rooms has a canal view. The bed & pillows were comfy. There are 2 sinks which was nice, there was a fan which was very much appreciated, and a wonderfully deep bath tub. The decor is eclectic, the B&B is very clean, the host & hostess are very pleasant. The stairs are very, very steep (think lighthouse). It is in a convenient location with restaurants & pubs nearby.

We spent 2 nights here and picked this place for the price and location. I guess we got what we paid for in Amsterdam. Our room was 145 euros in the back of the building and up 48 narrow spiral staircase. I would not recommend this place if stairs are any issue and do not bring only carry-on suitcase. Half way up the stairs is a living area with a sink, small refrigerator, couch and kitchen table. They provide a water kettle for tea and coffee.There is tv on a shelf beside the couch which is hard to see from the couch. There are extension cords to everything. The first thing that comes to mind is the fire escape in case of a fire which would be an issue in this house. Then to go to the bedroom, you must go up the 2nd half of the staircase and the bed was in an attic type room as I had to hang on to the bed to walk around to the other side of the bed. The bathroom is the size of a closet and the shower is in another small room next to the bathroom. We did not get towel and bed making service for our 2 day stay. There was only one hand towel. Breakfast is on the bottom floor in the house and it was bread, cheese, melon, juice and one cup of coffee. The last day we had an early departure so no mention was of a sandwich to take with us. The owners are nice, they only have 2 rooms. There is an additional charge to use credit card. I felt the owners are just in for the money and I would find a better place next time and pay more.

Spent 3 night at the end of our Viking Cruise. Certainly not the fault of the hosts that it was 95 - 100 degrees every day BUT they were unable to provide any relief from the heat except for one small table fan. We had the back apartment, two rooms on two floors. The windows on the living room level didn't open. The loft bedroom windows did open but because of location offered no breezes. We had to continue to carry the one fan up and down the narrow spiral staircase to get any relief at all. The unit was cute but bath facility was on loft level with small closet toilet and closet shower. Breakfasts were uninspired and the same all three days...….cheese, bread, fruit and one egg and one piece of bacon. Hosts were helpful with advise about Amsterdam and sites to see but even at normal temperatures just navigating the two flights of narrow spiral stairs to the living room and a third to the loft would have been tricky so luggage stayed down in the common kitchen. One of the sites I used to select this B&B lists it having A/C and even says "unique for Amsterdam B&Bs". This information does NOT appear on their personal website and should be corrected. I prefer B&Bs when I travel and have really enjoyed the uniqueness they offer. This was unique but could be so much more!

I love staying in places with a history so this 17th century canal house overlooking the Herengracht Canal was a great choice. Added to that, the easy access to all major sights, a 10 minute walk from the central railway station and the warmth of our hosts made for an exceptionally pleasant stay. It's quiet with no noise from traffic or people - a big plus in a city which is buzzing with tourists at all times. You can wave to the people in boats, going past your window on the canal and pretend you are a local!
