We stayed in this wonderful B&B for 3 nights during the Christmas of 2010 and it is the best decision we made.
It was a slow winter season with many visitors stranded at the airports due to heavy snow. We booked the Red Tulip Room but Carlos the owner offered us the (much bigger ) apartment downstairs with the same price !
This place is minutes to Dam Square and very stragitically located. The room is very clean, well decorated and comfortable, with a fantastic view overlooking the canal. Like all Amsterdam townhouses at the canal, carrying heavy luggages up the narrow winding staircases is a real chellenge.
Breakfast was great-- Cheese, Ham, Yoghurt, Friuts , freshly baked bread with eggs of you choice. Carlos will make sure you have enough dose of vitamine C of the day from his freshly squeezed oranges.
Carlos and Roelf -Jan are fantastic people who are friendly, warm and talented. Carlos, an artist who painted all the walls deco and Roelf -Jan is a film/photographer. They are very well informed of the places you are visiting and tickets are available at their B&B.
At the departure day, Carlos even got us a taxi right at the door steps to the airport at very resonable price during this difficult heavy- snow winter holiday.
The BEST B&B in Amsterdam.
