We stayed three nights here, choosing it on the basis of other TripAdvisor recommendations. It really is a very well-appointed B&B - our room was spacious and clean, with a kitchen and bathroom to ourselves. Décor was new and fresh. Location is good, especially for the museums. Our hosts, Fons and Odette, were friendly and helpful. As other reviews point... More

B&B Helmers is charming, well kept and a good location. The room was clean and it was so nice having a min-fridge stocked with delicious food. The location is great for visiting the museums and taking a short tram ride in to the city center. The neighborhood lacks some of the charm and ease of other neighborhoods like the Jordaan.... More

We stayed four nights at B&B Helmers. This is after I changed the dates of our reservation at least three times, due to us booking so far in advance and changing our trip itinerary. Odette was super nice about it and responsive. One of the times, I called her from NYC and she called me back from Amsterdam within 15... More

Great location outside of the tacky tourist centre. Beautiful roof garden, excellent breakfast, and bed. Left to own devices, and very modern. A welcoming feel to the place and genuinely nice owners. Would recommend to anyone visiting.

Although the price tag seems initially rather high, at the end of our stay we realized that this place is great value: from the strawberries in the fridge, the spotlessly clean rooms, the lightly scented fluffy towels, till the very friendly landlady, this small apartment (3 rooms: bedroom, kitchen & toilet) made us feel very very welcome. There are many... More

Fantastic hosts, nothing too much trouble. From booking online they emailed loads of information before our departure which made life so much easier. Room was very clean and comfortable and breakfast was lovely. Location was ideal was within walking distance of everything. Would highly recommend you stay here if you visit Amsterdam.

The B&B is close to the centrum and one can walk easily to all the sights. Also there are a lot of great restaurants nearby. The room itself is big enough for two people and furnished/decorated nicely. It was really comfortable to have breakfast by ourself. The bathroom is really pretty too. Being able to leave the luggage after Check-out... More
