This was our third visit to Amsterdam and our first stay at the Sunhead of 1617. We could not have been happier with our choice.
Carlos and Roelf-Jan were wonderful hosts who were happy to share their obvious love for their city. Our room--the Tulip room--overlooked the canal and offered both charm and comfort. Making guest rooms for the modern traveler fit into classic buildings can understandably be a challenge, but we appreciated the thoughtful and creative use of space that resulted in a thoroughly comfortable accommodation. Nothing felt cramped and there was plenty of room to relax with a coffee from the excellent in-room espresso maker.
As other travelers have commented, the location is ideal, particularly for those looking to enjoy Amsterdam's quieter side in lovely restaurants and friendly cafés and brown bars. Yet it is still a quick tram ride or a pleasant walk to the city's major sights and museums.
We are glad we chose the Sunhead and recommend it enthusiastically. We are already looking forward to a return visit.
