Before we even showed up at CityCenter Bed and Breakfast Amsterdam, Camillo was very informative and helpful through the e-mails he had sent me. When we arrived in Amsterdam after an early morning of travel from Madrid, we were greeted by sweet & friendly Camillo. The guest rooms are on the top floor of Camillo & his partner Joost's home and the place while not big, is cozy and welcoming. The stairs that lead up to the room is quite narrow & steep and while it was not a problem for us, I can see it being a problem for people who may have issues walking or lack balance. There are 2 rooms in the top floor in which the bathroom sits in the middle for both rooms. Fortunately for us, we were the only guests that night. The room is very clean and warm and Camillo went right away to tell us all the attractions in Amsterdam and how to control the temperature of the room to our liking. He provides towels, robes, water heater for tea, tea cups, a tin with treats, and most importantly for me, a hairdryer. He also provides body washes & shampoo in the bathroom which is also nice, especially since the next B&B we stayed at in Brugge (B&B 't Walleke) didn't really provide any bathroom amenities besides toilet paper & towels. The location of B&B is also very convenient, we liked that it was close to the train station so that it made it easy for us to leave in the morning to head to Brugge. Yellow Bike is also right next door which allowed us to easily go on a bike tour & rent bikes to go exploring around the city. In the morning, Camillo provides a very beautiful & filling breakfast. He did not make it easy for us to leave Amsterdam! We do have one small complaint, and that was the smoky smell. Apparently the owners smoke, and since they live on the lower floor, as you enter the B&B you are greeted by the smell of smoke. Being Americans, we're used to smoking being banned practically everywhere so we perhaps we are just being picky compared to Europeans. But otherwise, we adored this B&B, Camillo and Joost are really wonderful people and we wish the best for them!
