“Beautiful room, space and location”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We booked this room after seeing reviews on Trip Advisor. The price was incredibly reasonable compared with everywhere else in Amsterdam.

The location was perfect for having a taste of the red light district without having to be fully submerged. I imagine that the rooms can be a little noisy at night on the weekends, but it wasn't an issue while we were there. It was an absolute pleasure to stay in a traditional canal side building.

We stayed in the 'Black and White room', the room was very spacious, with bed down one end and large dining table and kitchen area at the opposite end. We didn't use these at all as we were only there briefly. Room also included an ensuite shower/toilet, which was nice.

The only reason we are giving 4/5 is that breakfast left much to be desired. A rather strange mix of bread, jam, chocolate sprinkles and fruit. No tea or coffee at all, so we went out for breakfast both mornings.

The owners kept to themselves though very kindly offered to look after our bags on our last day as our flight wasn't until the evening.

Would definitely stay here again!

Delightful stay in the white room, joost was a great host and gave lots of good recommendations! Breakfast was good- no fresh coffee though. The room had a great view onto the canal! Only downside- very close to the wild red light district!

We only stayed a night and hope we had stayed another night so we can see more of Amsterdam. The B&B is very conveniently located, which makes walking around the city, and catching a train out of Amsterdam Central very easy. It's just at the cusp of the Redlight district, so for 2 female travelers that was an eyeopener, but we didn't feel uncomfortable or unsafe at any point.
We stayed in the room at the back of the house (it's very quiet at night) and it's really cute with original tiles that we thought were very quaint. We wanted a genuine experience of staying in an Amsterdam house and we got it here at B&B1680. Eugenie was very nice and friendly, and we had a fantastic time in Amsterdam. Will not hesitate to return to B&B1680 if we get a chance to visit again.

Room Tip: We stayed at the room at the back of the house so it was very quiet at night, the room at the front...

I found this place on the internet. We stayed on the top floor of of the building. It has big windows, a big wooden table where we had breakfast. a bed with canal-view, sofa, tv, free wi-fi. We felt like we were staying in a private apt. Throughly enjoyed our stay. The owners, Eugenia ,Joist, and Dennis made the trip an experience we won't forget. When we went to Paris for a few days they offered to hold our other suitcase there so we would have to lug it around. They even carried our luggage up and down the steep stairway, did our laundry and called the taxi for us. I would highly recommend this place. One other thing, great location, in the middle of everything.

Room Tip: Take the top apt

For the price, this is a great B&B. Booking via e-mail was easy and efficient. I received the bigger B&W room, although I'd ooked the smaller one. The room was large (very large in A'dam standards), very clean and well equipped. Breakfast, tea & coffee were delivered to my room the evening before.
Location is as good as it gets - straight in the centre, close to shopping, the dam square, tram line, nightlife andthe metro.
The only word of warning is for elderly or disabled visitors - the stairs to the room are typical Amsterdam - very steep and narrow so could be a problem for some.
Overall highly recommended for a short stay, for singles or couples.

we stayed in the wonderful, stylish appartment in the top floor of the old, romantic building in the heart of amsterdam (near dam, red light district, bars, restaurants, churches, museums,....). it had huge windows, a wonderful big wooden table where we had breakfast every morning, a bed with canal-view, sofa, tv, free wifi. the owner was very nice and welcoming.
we felt like staying in a privat flat. next time there`s no other place to stay for us!!!
