“Great location! Great breakfast! Great host!”
Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

Margot's bed and breakfast was a perfect place for us during our time in Amsterdam. Her home is clean, warm, in a fabulous location, and has great views of the canal! Margot was a terrific host - she had a delicious breakfast ready at the time we preferred, cooked eggs just the way we like, and was extremely trust-worthy of us being in her home. We cannot thank her enough for opening her home to us!

We were 2 couples and stayed 2 nights. Great location, great breakfast, very clean. It was a pleasure to talk to Margot about her country and she was most accommodating. We would not hesitate to recommend the Bed and Breakfast to any of our Canadian family and friends! Margot made our stay in your home very pleasant.

.. so don't get me wrong (in giving a very good) but we stayed as a group of four which presents difficulties that may be do not present when you stay as a couple. The obvious one being the shared bathroom when we had breakfast together. It was also assumed that we only wanted one key per room and whilst Margot did provide one extra front door key for part of our stay, it did mean that at times we had to return to the B&B to let another in. It seems geared up to short stays as no wardrobes in either room (and only hangers for a hat stand on the lower one) mean that everything is put on the limited shelf space.

Having said this, the location is perfect; the breakfast is first class as is the host. And yes, I would stay here again but thought it worthwhile mentioning the above - given the previous comments which failed to mention some aspects - that others are aware of potential problems.

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.
