Bibi really went out of her way to welcome my family from Canada. When I called several other B&Bs I was informed that all across the city, rooms were booked because of a media conference. Initially, even Bibi, too, was unable to offer a full stay. However, after a series of phone calls, Bibi made it possible for my family to stay in a charming apartment located right in the heart of the Pijp. And when that was booked - she offered her own bed! You can't beat that hospitality.
In terms of the apartment, there is a fridge, internet connection, nice kitchen and kitchen table, cutlery etc... Everything needed for self catering. Just around the corner - cafes, restaurants, market, and ATM machines... If you are looking for a B&B just outside of the main city centre, where it can get too touristy, yet literally walking distances from several museums including Rijks, Van Gogh, etc... This is the place to be!
