Booked this b&b for four nights for stay with art lover hubby and 3 year old daughter. Agree with other reviews, warm welcome, very comfortable room, kitchen a great advantage when travelling with a toddler. A travel cot was added to our room and Lil miss was very happy. We had top floor front bedroom with en suite shower bathroom. Room spacious enough to accommodate a cot. Room also benefited from round table and chairs for eating, writing or reading. Folding buggy was was kept in entrance just like at home. Excellent location for travel in from airport (197 bus cheap and efficient), lots of trams and buses into town, but walking easy. Prime location for Van Gogh, Stedjelik and Rijksmuseum and park, if only we could have done a concert also. Delightful residential area (reminded us of Kings Road/Sloane Sq area of London!) with a few brasseries and a posh fish restaurant, plus handy supermarket 2 mins away. Yes the stairs in the house are STEEP! But this is Amsterdam remember! This is a lovely late 19th century family home, so relaxing to come back to after a long day touristing! Great wifi and good tv channel choices. Yes 2 ginger cats, but no complaints of any smoke smells at all. All was clean and comfy. Janneke also kindly kept our bags for us as we had a late return home flight. Could not have been easier to enjoy a full last day, come back get our bags snd jump back on that 197 bus round the corner. Would love to return and happily recommend this to you. Why have an anonymous hotel when you can enjoy the tranquillity of Janneke's elegant home?
