“Avoid this place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

I recommend that you find someplace else to stay when you are in Amsterdam. This place is called a B&B, but there is no breakfast! The rooms are absolutely bare minimum - - the room we had was the only that had any furniture other than the bed! We had a small table and one chair, which we carried down to the kitchen area so we could seat 6 of us to eat the food we bought at the Albert Heijn grocery store for breakfast. They never made a bed nor did we ever see anyone who ran the place except when we checked in and were given keys. We were told to put CASH (no credit cards) in an envelope and slide it under a locked door. Don't know where they thought we'd come up with an envelope, but luckily we got one with a survey at the Riksmuseum which we used to put the money in. A real ripoff!!!

On arrival room looked clean but floor was dirty and there was no brush so we couldn't sweep ourselves. We stayed four days and room wasn't cleaned once and bed sheets not changed at all so after 4 days was looking grotty. On first night there was no hot water this was fixed the next day but the impression was we were putting the owners out. Other people staying in room above were very loud through the night and because there is no one there to manage the property this disrupted out stay. Wish we'd have chosen a different place

Spiegelkwartier B&B was a great stay for us over New Year. It was like our own little place in the city. Completely independent check in, collecting keys etc.
We didn't see the owners or host (a girl that stays in the same building) once. Breakfast was available to us and our rooms and bathroom clean each day.
Location was good, we rented bikes so was a lot quicker to get around - and fun!
