The B&B is located in several locations. We were right on Singel canal so it was always easy to find your way back (although you can't see the canal from the room we were in). The B&B is just lovely. We had a room with two twin beds and private bathroom. The room was comfortable, bathroom spacious and it was very clean. The host was very friendly. The breakfasts were ok - sometimes by the time we got down, several items were already gone (my son just loved the croissants so was disappointed that they were gone by the time we ate.) The location is great - you are close to many of the major attractions and it is only a short walk from the center of town and bus. We did not get to meet the owners (they were out of town) so that was a bit disappointing since we heard they were great about giving tips on where to go. I was traveling with my son (22) - he loved location too and wondered why anyone would stay in a hotel when they could stay at a B&B (his first time at one). Note that the host was only there for a short time in the morning so do not expect to be entertained by the host. You do get their number to call if you should have any issues. This B&B was recommended by a friend and I would recommend it to anyone I know who needed a place "like home" to stay. While there was no great view from our room - we overlooked a small courtyard and it was quiet. I know that on my next trip to this wonderful city - I'll be staying here again.
