“Slice of heaven in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

We loved our stay at Bees B&B! The owners were so helpful - provided maps, discount cards and "local knowledge" suggestions for Amsterdam. The room was beautiful - warm, stylish, massive comfortable bed. Food provided was excellent - I was especially impressed by the fresh local breads/cheeses/salamis and the squeezed orange juice in the morning! Location is unbeatable - right in the heart of the city - amazing scenery and awesome shopping and eating on the doorstep. All in all it was a highlight of our entire Euro tour! Thanks so much for looking after us so well. Kind regards Jess and Adam.

The apartment is set away from the noisy touristy centre but still just 5 minutes from Dam Square. and a stones throw from Anne Frank house. On arrival Brigitte showed us on a map all of the local sights and places worth visiting including small non tourist swamped pubs and a traditional market just 10 minutes away that we went to on the saturday. The Apartment was stocked with Beer, Cheese and Ham on arrival and the kitchen had everything we needed in it. We even cooked in it one night and it was not a problem at all. I would advise this accommodation to anyone over hotels as you feel you have your own space. There is plenty of tourist information books in the room so you can plan exactly what to do. The apartment was clean and lovely and the breakfast every morning set us up perfectly for big days out.
I would recommend Bees B&B to anyone and would 100% stay here again.

We went for a 3 night city break in the lead up to Christmas, and wanted somewhere in the middle of an attractive part of Amsterdam, close on foot to all the museums markets and sights. The apartment was warm and comfortable, within a residential canal-side building. A charming location, made all the better with Brigitte's kindness and hospitality. Really enjoyed the freshly juiced oranges and fruit and rolls in the mornings. Would recommend over a hotel provided you have no mobility issue (canal side houses have traditional steps)

We loved our stay at the Bees. The studio apartment is wonderful in every respect: modern and cozy, warm and quiet, clean and very comfortable. Lovely all around. Hans was very helpful and welcoming. The fridge was stocked and the breakfasts were perfect. We highly recommend this, again, lovely studio. The location is perfect. We look forward to our next stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at Bees, the apartment is modern and clean, and the location is perfect, we were quite impressed. Hans is very helpful and knowledgeable and provided us with lots of information. The fridge is well stocked with high quality food for breakfast. After 3 days we ran out of food and also the bin was completely full - it was a little bit awkward for us having to ask for more food and a bin liner, but we were promptly assured we would have everything later on, which we did, so that was fine. The pizzeria next door is just amazing. We really enjoyed our stay at Bees and thoroughly recommend it to everyone.

Dear Ana and Carlos,
Thank you very much for your kind and positive review. We are very pleased that you had a great time and really enjoyed your stay with us. We are sorry you felt a little bit awkward when asking for new supplies for the kitchen, etc. As we tell all our guests, we don't like to enter your private studio (unless it is necessary for fixing something or you ask us to do some extra cleaning). So whenever our guests need anything at all, new food or anything else whatsoever, please feel free to ask and you will be provided with new supplies or whatever. Thanks again for your review and we hope to welcome you again some other time!

Kind regards,
Brigitte

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
