She's not always in town, so be sure to ask about her schedule if meeting Xaviera Hollander is part of your agenda. The house is a great place to stay regardless, and her staff is warm... More

This was my first stay at a bed and breakfast so unfortunately I cannot compare this to similar businesses since I typically book hotels. I wanted to try something different and make the place where I was staying part of the experience of seeing another country than just another place to sleep. I am glad that I did as the... More

We have a very nice stay at Xaviera Hollander's Happy House. The chalet was a perfect place for our weekend in Amsterdam. Everything is close to the center (walkingtime 15 minutes) and the bus/tram only 2 minutes walk! Breakfast is ok and we have a very nice talk with Xaviera, she's lovely and very interested. Thanks for our pleasant stay... More

I was in Amsterdam for work. The proximity of the exhibit hall and the warm welcome of the B&B made the stay very pleasant. The convivial breakfast allowed me to meet other professionals. The B&B is in a quite neighborhood. Nights are quite. A good restaurant is nearby.

I always like real live experiences. Hence my stage theatre business I booked the Happy House and got what I was looking for. Philip and Xaviera were joyeus and down to earth people, whom made me feel comfortable as soon as I arrived. The place is alive and the room was clean and tidy. So thanks for a pleasant stay....
