“Loved this canal location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2011

Four of us really enjoyed our stay here! Chris and Clarita were very friendly and helpful. Communication before our arrival was much appreciated and we would suggest booking the taxi service recommended by our hosts. It was more reasonable than any we found at the airport, and the driver was amiable and the vehicle was clean and enjoyable to ride in. When Al had some rinsed out clothes trying to dry, Chris offered to dry them for him, as clothes just don't dry out near a canal!! The location was great and we really enjoyed our self- serve breakfasts, as Chris would ask us what items we would like ahead of time. Clarita suggested a day trip for us that turned out to be fantastic!! We would love to stay here again!!

Stayed September 2011, traveled with friends

Loved our stay at Bloembed. Decorated lovely and tastefully. Close to the center, in fact directly down the road from Anne Frank house, but extremely quiet and safe. The host's were very welcoming and accommodating, offering us use of our room the entire day before flying out late in the evening which was very appreciated! Very nice self service breakfast. Maps and tourist information pamphlets available on site.

Easy to find with the directions we were given. Clarita greeted us with a smile and showed us around the communal dining/kitchen area,(with computer) and then our spacious bedroom and en-suite. She recommended a fabulous little restuarant not far from the B & B.
Lots of stuff left for breakfast, yoghurt,cereal,bread,jam,cheese,eggs,juice,tea,coffee which we helped ourselves to. The B & B is located in a nice area that felt safe (which is important for two ladies) .5 min walk to Anne Franks house and the western church.
It's a bit like self catering because you do your own breakfast (good as you can suit yourself) and dishes (not so good as dish washing is not on my holiday agenda).
We had the inner bedroom which is spotless,comfotable beds,good shower etc, I have two gripes though, no fresh air as it hasn't got an outside window although a fan is supplied, there is a bit of noise from upstairs but not too loud or too late. We didn't sleep so well on our last night as the toilet maserator kept grinding every 45 mins and waking us, I did mention this to Clarita and she said she would get Chris to look at it.
Overall we enjoyed our stay in this b & b with it's friendly owners !!!

We had a great stay. In fact we re-booked another 2 days at the end of our trip. The owners were so nice and helpful with great ideas for us. It is located on a quiet street in the Jordaan within an easy walk to Dam Square. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were spotless. It's like having a home away from home. The kitchen is well stocked and you can have breakfast at your leisure. The wi-fi was also very fast. Really couldn't have asked for more!

Our stay at Bloem Bed was terrific! We enjoyed our comfortable room and private bath. It was bright and very clean. The owners Chris and Clarita live above so the two guest accommodations share a common living area with small kitchen without feeling like you are in someone's personal space. The kitchen was stocked with a variety of breakfast foods (breads, yogurt, juice, coffee, teas) and were available for you to make at your leisure. Everything in the B&B was super clean and in great condition. A computer was in the common area which worked well for checking email for me...didn't work so well for my Husband though! There were several other guests who were in the other room during our four night stay, but we seldom crossed paths. The location could not be more wonderful, right on one of the smaller canals and very close to Anne Frank's house in the Jordaan neighborhood, with a variety of dining options nearby. The gracious welcome from Chris and Clarita going out of her way to meet us as well really helped to make us feel comfortable! They do not take credit cards and the ATM's did have a daily limit so plan ahead to make the payment on arrival... Chris was most understanding that I was less than prepared, but we did get it settled up in good time! One room (there are only two) is larger than the other, but even in the smaller room, two of us were quite comfortable.

  • Liked — Bright and Cheerful space! Friendly Owners!
  • Disliked — Could not turn the heat on (chilly in October).
