“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

We were in Amsterdam at the end of March for 3 nights and if I ever went back- Amphora is THE ONLY place we would stay. Our boys ages 7 and 5 absolutely loved it. We had fresh food in the kitchen, games and toys for the kids to play with, and it was an excellent location. Pictures of the bathroom mosaic do not do it justice. It was amazing in person. The design of the whole place was fantastic. It was truly our own apartment in Amsterdam- our own entrance from the street and everything. Even more amazing were the owners. They made sure we had everything we needed, and even baked us homemade goodies to snack on. They knew that where we currently live, we can't get fresh milk- she made it a point to bring us fresh milk daily, and even more when the kids drank it all. What a fantastic place, all at a great price.

Stayed in this hotel from 9 April to 13 April of this year with mom and sister. Greet and Niels, the owners of Amphora B and B, were very welcoming and kind. They gave us a lot of information about the city and were available for any queries/concerns. Walking distance from Anne Frank house and other landmarks. Do ask Greet about her art gallery. She'll be happy to have you visit to take a peek. Room for rent has an artistic touch (see shower mosaics). Atmosphere is warm and inviting and will make you feel at home. Thank you Greet and Niels for helping make our European trip extremely memorable and fun!

We stayed at the Amphora b&b for 3 nights in the easter holydays and we can say it was perfect! The B&B is fantastic: very quiet, beautiful, with everything you can need to stay confortable like your home, near to the dam square and to a lot of good places for eat.
The breakfast was amazing! the owners gave us every day a very big and delicious breakfast, and you can find also different things to eat in the B&B (everything is for free).
The owners are very friendly, helpful and kind, they gave us a lot of important informations about Amsterdam (before we arrived and when we were here) and for easter they gave us a little gift and some chocolate eggs just to make us feel like home...we really appreciated that and if we come back to Amsterdam we 'd like to stay again here

Thanks again Greet & Niels for a terrific stay in Amsterdam!!! We would not hesitate to stay at Amphora again if we return to Amsterdam (from Australia!). The plentiful breakfast provided/bathroom mosaic/attention to detail in the Apartment and the actual Jordaan area were all lovely. Would recommend to anyone, it was more than we could have hoped for for our stay (as a family of 4) in Amsterdam ;)

I stayed 5 nights at the amphora BB. Not only it was perfect, clean and very cosy but also, the owner was extremely kind and careful to my coeliac disease.
I had fresh bread, all the stuff for a tasty breakfast and even a wonderful soup.
I really advice this place for coeliac (and not coeliac) tourists!!!


Sono stata 5 notti in questo BB. Pulito, accogliente, bello! Ma soprattutto la proprietaria è stata gentilissima e attentissima al fatto che sono celiaca. Pane fresco senza glutine, cereali per colazione e anche zuppa calda al rientro!
Consiglio vivamente questo posto a celiaci e non!

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 :)
