I will try my best not to gush - but it will be difficult - our stay at Amphora was so wonderful!! We stayed at Amphora for 8 nights , and this place has everything going for it. Firstly, the location - it is on a quiet street , opposite a canal. However, it is a mere 15 minutes walk from the central Dam square and 3 minutes to the tram stop. It is very close to the very moving Anne Frank House, and to the Westermarkt area.
The room is pretty big, very comfortable, and decorated with Greet's artistic flair. And travelers with little kids would understand how my son felt when he opened the bottom drawer of the closet and found it full of toys and a Lego set. " What kind of hotel is this?!" he asked me, awed.
The room has a living area, a kitchenette, and a sleeping area and bath. Breakfast is self service, but Greet and Niels visit with fresh bread and pastries every alternate day. In fact, though the room and location are superb, I would say the best part of the whole experience is the wonderful hosts - they help with travel advice, shopping advice - it's like staying with very close friends.

We really enjoyed our stay at this bed and breakfast apartment. It was just what we wanted. Private but with Our hosts there if needed. Very comfortable, clean and well located! (The waffles were delicious ).
Plenty of breakfast and snacks, thoughtful little touches that mean a lot.
We would definitely recommend this place to stay when visiting Amsterdam. We hope to visit again!
Thank you Greet and Niels :)

A perfect studio apartment for visiting Amsterdam. There is plenty of room for 4. A small kitchenette with a fridge, coffee maker, hot pot and more, well stocked with plenty of coffee, tea, butter biscuits, cereals, instant soap and noodle. Plus Greet provided plenty of stuff in the morning, too. It's great not having to hunt for snacks after a long day exploring the city. The apartment has a private entrance so it feels entirely like our own. The front door opens up to a small canal. A quiet neighborhood but not far from lots of restaurants. 5 minute walk to tram stops that go to Dam Square and the museums. We had a wonderful time.

This was our second stay at Amphora in 12 months, for 8 nights this time, we cannot say enough positives about Greet, Niels and the B&B itself. They make you feel part of the community and offer advise on where to go and even invited us to hang with family and friends in their local park. I would recommend Amphora to anybody, you will not be disappointed.

We stayed here for 2 days in August with 2 children. We loved coming home. Located in a quiet area, we felt at home. The room was clean and offered tv, videos, wine, coffee/tea, snacks. Jeff and I has some alone time drinking wine on the bench outside, with an immediate view of a canal. It felt like a typical Amsterdam experience. Greet, the owner, came to welcome us. Very friendly and helpful. She also sent us off with a little Dutch traditional cookie - which we loved.
