We stayed at B&B1657 in early May for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay very much. The rooms are spacious and well appointed and the owner is extremely friendly and helpful. It is situated directly opposite a beautiful canal and above a little bar. We had to climb a few steep and narrow sets of stairs to get to our... More

We stayed here right after they had opened, and weren't even able to stay the first night of our reservation due to a late flight in. When we showed up the next morning, the staff were more than apologetic, upgraded our room, and we ate and drank for free at the Toon restaurant next door for the rest of our... More

The location is on the corner of Herengracht, one of the nicest canals, and Utrechtstraat, so it is close to restaurants and cafes in Rembrandtplein, and a short walk from the Rijksmuseum or Dam Square, and about 20 mins walk from Central Station. B&B 1657 consists of five floors with an office on the first floor and then a room... More

We also received an email from them a day before our stay that Hotel Toon, where we were to have breakfast was under renovation, but... More

Sal and Els have the formula just right. Good communication and directions prior to arrival. Friendly welcome. Nicely done room and bathroom with ever-changing scene from the window. Great cafe (Toon) also owned by them for breakfast - have what you like. Free minibar, nuts, sweets, coffee-table books. Very good location for access throughout Amsterdam. Would definitely come here again.

When my husband and I first arrived to the B&B, we were in love with its decor - a bit rustic yet modern and cozy. The breakfast was good in the mornings and was prepared for us no matter what time we would come to eat. From other reviews, we were prepared that our bathroom would be on the other... More

Besides a little confusion upon arrival, as it is not clearly marked as a B&B, it was a wonderful stay. The team here really had a nice presentation and made everything comfortable during my two nights in Amsterdam! Great morning breakfast, tasteful and modern bathroom and bedroom furnishing, with views of Herengracht canal. Starbucks is around the corner, and easy... More

Its not obvious that the house is a B&B but as we were met there it wasn't a problem. The... More

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
