We spent 3 days in Nov here.The apartment was lovely and as described with thoughtful extras.We were met on arrival by Hans and Brigitte and made to feel welcome,Hans had lots of useful information for us.
The apartment is in a great position for Dam square and central station.
Although Amsterdam is always cold in Nov it was very cold with constant rain and a massive hail storm,what was so nice about our stay was to return to under floor heating,fridge stocked and dvds provided
and must not forget the fresh fruit and warm rolls left outside are room every morning. Pat and Shirley

The room was very well presented, spacious & clean. Hans was on hand whenever a question needed to be answered and was incredibly helpful.

At the time we stayed there were some building works at the neighbouring apartment - while it didn't particularly bother us Hans & Brigitte went the extra mile to compensate. I got the feeling that if Hans could have pulled the scaffolding down himself to make our stay more pleasant he would have.

More food and breakfast was provided than we could possibly eat - another bonus and the location with it;s proximity to Dam Square and the Nine Streets is superb.

My one criticism is that it could use a decent sign at the front door - when we arrived we were unsure that we had come to the right address (compounded by the scaffolding) but never the less there were a few panicked moments that I'd rather have missed.

Room Tip: There is only one room to choose from, but don't be concerned it is great

Dear Denis and Philippa,

Thank you very much for placing your very positive review and we are very happy that you enjoyed your visit to Amsterdam and stay with us. We are sorry to hear that you were having some panicked moments finding the place (mainly due to the scaffolding). We are pleased to say that the scaffolding is gone by now (i.e. by 14 November) - which means that the street number and the building itself will no longer be obscured. Thanks also for your suggestion of a bigger sign - we will certainly consider it. We hope to welcome you again some time in the future. If anybody reading this is worried: the noise from the work next door is all finished now!

Kind regards,

Brigitte

Beautiful room in 1700 house, Hans and Bridgette are terrific, stocked the fridge with delicious cold cuts, beer, etc. breakfast was delicious, location is ideal. Bed is super cozy. Loved Bar Brandon and Portole Via pizza next door, great spot! Do have to mention if staying in the near future, building is under renovation, and it is loud starting early in the morning. Not a problem for us, as we are up to explore, but may be if you plan on sleeping in-

Hello Stefanie & Aaron,

Thanks very much for your very kind and positive review. We are very pleased that you had a great stay and loved the location! We are very sorry indeed for the noise in the morning and luckily it was not a problem for you. The main cause at the time being the renovation of our upstairs neighbour’s bathroom – which we are very pleased to say is finished already. The other cause was maintenance work of the building next door, which is also nearing completion in the next couple of weeks. So any visitors after that need not worry about building noise any more! Anyway, thanks again for your kind review – (Brigitte, Bees B&B).

We stayed at Bees B&B for 3 nights in September to celebrate our mini-moon. I chose Bees based on the positive trip advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. The studio is based in a typical dutch style house alongside Leliegracht canal, the location was perfect for us, next to the Jordaan and only a 5 minute walk from Dam Square. We received a friendly welcome from Hans who showed us how to use the Tv/ shower etc and also took us through the various city areas on a handy map.

There was some construction work during our stay and Hans/Brigitte kindly left an apologetic note and ear plugs for us, however the work didn't really impact on our trip as we were out and about fairly early and the bed was so comfortable that we didn't have any trouble sleeping.

The studio itself was extremely clean and welcoming with a number of little touches such as a fridge stocked with snacks (ham, cheese, beer) and also Amsterdam guide books which we used to plan our day trips. Hans & Brigitte provided a substantial breakfast each morning with fresh fruit, homemade bread and a lovely boiled egg!

We would highly recommend Bees for anybody wanting a relaxing break with a touch of Dutch hospitality and value for money.

As a couple on a weekend adventure this area of Amsterdam was perfect for us. Located alongside a pretty canal somewhere between the cobbled streets of Jordaan and the city center. Only a short walk north west takes you into the heart of Jordaan where you will find curious little shops selling bric a brac, antiques and trinkets nestled between a wide variety of bars cafes and restaurants. Just 5 mins to the east will take you to the bustling city center.
The room itself has been tastefully decorated with luxurious fittings and comfortable furniture. On arrival the fridge had been stocked with good quality cheese, ham and salami, butter, milk and yoghurts along with a couple of cold beers (a nice unexpected touch). Hans put together a wonderful breakfast which was left outside the room in the morning at our chosen time. Warm bread rolls, croissants, fresh fruit salad and a couple of boiled eggs. The cupboard had plenty of tea, coffee and jam. This delightful breakfast saw us through the day where all we needed at lunchtime was a coffee and a hot waffle from one of the many cafes. Another nice touch from the hosts was the discount card available to use which will save you on many of the attractions Amsterdam has to offer. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would happily recommend Bees B&B to anyone who wants to explore this fascinating city. Thanks Brigitte and Hans, we hope to return sometime soon.
