“Second time lucky with Le Quartier Sonang”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

Sometimes it is a mistake going back to great places a second time - because the second time doesn't live up to the first experience - or to one's good memories. That most definitely was not the case when I returned to Le Quartier Sonang recently, after quite some time. I have to say, I was expecting it to be just as good as before because Frank and Oki, the hospitable and caring hosts, are just those kind of guys, and it was a delight to be back. The rooms and bathrooms are sparkling, tastefully and newly decorated, large and very comfortable. The beds in particular are divine (how many bad hotel beds have you slept in?!). It is quiet, which is essential in my view, and the breakfast was fresh and delicious. The location is great: almost in the middle of Amsterdam and also close to restaurants, museums, transport, stores, etc. and we had a lovely dinner in a restaurant that Frank and Oki suggested. They are very helpful and available for questions and conversation, and also sensitive to the need for privacy - excellent hosts, in short. It is a superb B and B, great value for money and once again, I highly recommend it.

We stayed for four nights in January in the front room Chambre de Ville - you couldn't ask for more welcoming and friendly hosts than Frank and Oki. Everything is perfect, the location (quiet but surprisingly close to the city), the room, the bed, breakfast in bed, and such good value. We've stayed in other B and B's of similar quality (well, almost as good) and paid far more. And Amsterdam is such a wonderful city to visit. So a total recommendation from us

Room Tip: We stayed in Chambre de Ville which was perfect, overlooking the very quiet street, but I'm sure...

My husband and I stayed at Le Quartier Sonang for a few days prior to flying to Africa. Frank and Oki are wonderful hosts- friendly AND informative. We took their recommendations for places to eat near the B&B, and all were wonderful. The bed is the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. The breakfast is also a great deal- with fresh squeezed juice. I'd definitely stay here again!!

We recently spent two nights at Le Quartier Sonang. Our hosts were professional and friendly. The very fresh & yummy breakfast was brought up to our room at the time we requested . What's not to like about breakfast in bed???We loved the fresh fruit! The bed was super-comfy. And the shower was beautiful! Our room was peaceful and quiet and centrally located, so we could walk everywhere that we wanted to go. We took the bus from the airport, and we never needed to rent a car or use a taxi. We will definitely return!

Our taxi took us directly from our ship to the quiet neighborhood and in an old section of Amsterdam. Frank spent as much time as we wanted reviewing our plans and locations of events. We never needed a taxi until we went to the airport three days later. Everything was within a walk.
Tableside breakfast was on time and delicious every morning. Oki and Frank were constantly available to check in or help run an errand or make reccommendations.
The bathroom in our room was generous size, smartly appointed and well designed. A genuine PLUS!
We only had 3 days, there are weeks worth of things to see and do.

Room Tip: No wrong decisions

This gem in the heart of Amsterdam is THE place to stay. I visited this cosy and inviting townhouse for a short stay in midst December. The best choice I could have made! - thanks to 3 things: 1) The welcoming hosts, Oki and Frank, instantly make you feel at home and pamper you like no 5 star hotel ever could. Imagine a gracious continental breakfast decorated with a fresh flower brought to your room in the morning; a scent of Indonesian easy going life-style in the air. More reason to praise the hosts there is, but let me continue: 2) The traditional architecture of this typical Amsterdam townhouse in the Grachten quarter is a cultural experience in itself; you may feel like a true Dutch: Ah, that's how those canal houses look like inside. The ambiente of the furniture and decoration is a tasteful mix of modern and collected antique or collected items. And this place is spotlessly clean. And the precious Coco mattress!: It's for a prince/princess to sleep on: royal! The ensuite bathroom: deluxe! We had the luck to stay in the courtyard-room: spacious and very calm. 3) The location: You stay in the center center of Amsterdam in walking distance to all those sights you certainly have on your agenda: The famous canal/grachten quarter, the Rijks and Van Gogh Museum, the Palace and and and. 5 minutes from the guesthouse are nice, small and good restaurants/bistros. Also, public transport is around the corner. - I surely will come back here next time. Meanwhile it's your turn to enjoy Le Ouartier Sonang and beautiful Amsterdam! Ey, no wonder it's travelers' 1st. choice :)

We love the experience we receive when we stay at this wonderful haven in Amsterdam. This is our second visit due to the care and comfort of our hosts. The attention to detail is why this place is so special. The bed is simply the best we have ever slept in and you receive a lovely welcome tray of breakfast to your room. Fresh flowers appear in your room and chocolates on your bed when they do a turn down service every night. It is in a great location with some lovely restaurants close by. Frank and Oki are very helpful guides to give you
