Just got back from a weekend in Amsterdam sataying at Bibies B&B. The location is fantastic, a short walk to the Museum Square (Van Gogh museum etc) and a few mins walk to the 16 and 24 trams which take you straight into the centre. The area (Pjip) is very cool with loads of nice bars nearby (head down to9 the Albert Cuyp martket) and a great bar/restaurant a few doors down called Cafe Quinto, which is where we picked the keys up when we arrived. We spent quite a bit of time there and recommend the Bitterballen (deepfried meatball things!). At the B&B, the rooms are basic but clean and the beds are comfy and the internet worked fine, as did the cable TV. The breakfast is v generous, ham/salami, cheese and plenty of bread in the fridge as well as Senseo coffee machine, with tons of refills. Kitchen was a bit tatty, to be honest, and could do with a bit of a refurb but everything seemed to work ok.
All in all, a great location at a v decent price, and perfect for a short stay.
