Perfect location on the lovely Herengracht Canal. Convenient to museums, attractions, neighborhood markets and cafes. The rooms are impeccable and tastefully furnished and decorated (often with Carlos' impressive artistry!). The attic rooms are charming with exposed beams, warm colors and comfortable banquet seating. The canal facing Jonquil Room has beautiful windows opening to a wonderful view of Herengracht Canal and one of the many bridges of Amsterdam. Carlos and Roelf-Jan are superb hosts that in addition to sharing interesting (and colorful!) breakfast-time conversations with my friends and me, also provided insightful recommendations for museums, tours, neighborhood markets, etc. that made us feel like we were locals.
Now for the breakfasts..... phenomenal! Starting with a fruit smoothie with a touch of ginger and chile pepper for a refreshing start, then on to perfectly brewed coffee with Roelf-Jan's artful froth followed by your personally and individually prepared 5 star breakfast created by Carlos. The fresh mozzarella and tomato bruschetta with truffle and smoked fish and scrambled egg are memorable.
Sunhead 1617 felt like my temporary home while visiting Amsterdam and allowed me to totally escape reality and fully enjoy my vacation.
