My brother and his wife stayed here and absolutely raved about it, so I thought, I've never been to Amsterdam, so booked five nights. You know when you visit the website of a hotel and arrive and are slightly deflated that it doesn't appear to match up and is rather impersonal? Well, this place is the precise opposite.
From the moment we arrived, near midnight, due to a delayed flight, we were greeted by Camilla who took us in to the kitchen by the fire for some midnight snacks and wine; then in to the most opulent suite stocked with beautiful furniture with tremendous natural lighting to suit the painters who once occupied the House) to the glorious, death-defying feast of a breakfast served up by Guido each morning; we were blown away. My wife is vegetarian and the breakfast prepared for her each day was truly magnificent, just another example of the exceptional attention to detail and charm of the place and its hosts.
Such interesting, kind people in a magnificent historical house set a little outside the centre, which is perfect really, meaning you don't get the late night cacophony of the city. We followed Guido's suggestions of where to go, and what to do, mixed in with some of our own ideas, and managed to see pretty much the whole city at a leisurely pace.
It is worth spending that little extra to come here, you will truly be glad you did.
