My husband and I were warmly welcomed (with a glass of wine and touring recommendations!) to Amsterdam for our all-too-brief visit (2 nights at the end of March) by the most gracious of hosts, Frank and Oki. This was the final stop of our trip after 10 days in Rome and 6 in Malta to celebrate my husband's special birthday, and it was a wonderful way to end our journey. Our room, overlooking a quiet residential street, was comfortable, spotless, and well appointed. The breakfasts were delicious and Frank and Oki even accommodated our early departure with breakfast before the usual time frame. They are both in the hospitality business and their experience shows in making guests feel special - in a low key, friendly, sincere way. They carried our luggage up and down the steep staircase - thankfully - and also arranged for our taxi pick-up the morning we left. They provided wonderful restaurant suggestions and in a pre-arrival email, suggested that we purchase museum tickets online ahead of time - which saved us a lot of time. We totally agree with all the other positive reviews and add our absolutely top rating to those which have been previously submitted. We look forward to returning for a much longer visit. Thank you again Frank and Oki.
