“Great location and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Our two days at the Margot B&B were fantastic. It is located within minutes by walk from everything you want to visit. We didn't know about the Gay Pride Parade, which was mainly a few canals from the B&B so that kept the location quiet. The rooms and bathroom were clean, the breakfast is excellent and the hospitality of Margot is great. We recommend Margot B&B for its location, hospitality, and great value for money. Finally, although my girlfriend is allergic to cats, she didn't have any trouble since the B&B is kept very clean.

We loved our three day stay at the Margot B&B. The rooms are lovely, light, and airy. They overlook the canal. We could see people biking and boating past and soak up the spirit of Amsterdam. The location is wonderful. We walked or took the tram everywhere we wanted to go with no problem, including the Rijksmuseum. (You can buy tram tickets on the tram itself at the back, so just hop on when you see the one you want.) The Margot is a few streets away from the very touristy areas, so it was very pleasant to walk around and stop for lunch or supper in a local cafe with actual locals. The nearby bridge is a great gathering place with cafes on almost every corner, and there were always people sitting outside drinking coffee or eating from early morning to late evening. We loved having the B&B cat visit us, as we were missing our own pets after being gone for two weeks. The stairs are quite steep with a vertical rope handle if that gives you an idea of how steep they are! But as long as mobility is not an issue for you, the steep stairs just add to the Dutch ambiance. The breakfast is hearty and delicious. Margot was a gracious and helpful host.

Room Tip: The third floor room is slightly bigger than the fourth floor room and one less flight of stairs. B...

We stayed for 2 days during July 24-26. The location was fantastic. The rooms and bathroom are clean & lovely. The breakfast was delicious. Thanks Margot for her hospitality. I will definitely prefer Margot B&B for my next visit to Amsterdam.

I stayed at B&B Margot earlier this month with my partner and my father (we occupied both of the only 2 rooms!) - we had a fantastic stay. The rooms are bright & airy and the location was fantastic. We walked practically everywhere - Central Station (10 minutes) the Anne Frank Museum (10 minutes) and to the Museum District (30 minutes - but a very pleasant walk) from there.

The beds are comfy, the breakfast is top notch as Margot uses all of the best local produce, and we felt very relaxed and at home there. It was a very personal experience, far better than a generic hotel stay!

Would definitely recommend this place, it played a big part in us having a very enjoyable 2 day break in Amsterdam!

Room Tip: Canal Room 1 (on the 1st floor) was the nicer of the two rooms! But both are very comfortable.

We stayed 4 nights. The walk from the station is an easy 10mins. Margot was there to welcome us and show us our lovely, clean and comfortable room overlooking the canal Singel. The cases up the steep stairs was a bit of an effort, but only needs to be done once. Margots breakfasts are excellent and she is so helpful with bookings and local advice. Margot's B&B is in a great location for exploring beautiful Amsterdam and we enjoyed coming back to our comfortable quiet room with a great view.

Located at Singel canal, give us great canal view from the room. It take 10 mins to walk from Central station, or take tram for 1 stop only. And we enjoyed delicious breakfast prepared by Margot, and when we check out, she helped us to carry luggage down the steep staircase. Thank you Margot for the great hospitality!! ^^

Upon arriving Margot upgraded us to an apartment of our own for the same price and gave us lovely local foods to make breakfast with. She even Included a bottle of champagne and strawberries since it was our Honeymoon!! What a surprise! She was very helpful in telling us some great places to eat. Awesome local Thai food just around the corner! Great weekend experience in Amsterdam, always felt safe and it was just a short walk from the train station and local shopping and dining. Thanks Margot!!
