We stayed in this B&B during our vacation in Amsterdam (21-24 June 2013). Owned by a Malaysian "Zu" & a Dutch "Mr Wouter Van Ginkel", they both made us felt like home. Their kindness, hospitality & service quality exceeded our expectation. The secret of their excellence came expecially from Zu who actually has > than 20 years of experience in hotel management where he will ensure a 5 star service quality at all time.
These are the excellent things about this place :
1.) Strategic location. 2 minutes walk to the nearest tram station or 1 minute walk to the nearest bus stop. 15 minutes travelling to Central Station by tram and 15 minutes travelling to Schipol Airport by tram & train.
2.) They provided us with 2 Ov-cards with pre-loaded money for our travelling convenient.
3.) The studio like apartment room was very cosy, spacious and clean with modern fittings and furnitures.
4.) We had everything that we need in the room - clean towels, toiletries, hair dryer, flat screen tv, free wifi, small kitchen with cooker, microwave, kettle, fridge and kitchen utensils.
5.) Great breakfast. There were fresh buns infront of the doorstep every morning. On the last day of our stay, Zu surprised us with a Malaysian fried rice breakfast before leaving for the airport.
6.) We had our laundry done by request. There is an available washer & dryer next to the room which you can rent at a minimum charge. The most excellent part was that we had our dry clothes hanged in the room when we came in the evening.
7.) Not only the room is equipped with normal heating system but also a floor heater which is something new to us.
Those who are planning to visit Amsterdam, we highly recommend you to stay here......
