Firstly, let me say that I never write reviews, but this is the first place that really and thoroughly deserves it and it's not because it's a fancy 7 star hotel, but because it's a home to home experience you were always waiting for! I took my gilfriend for her 25th birthday there and I've spent hours on the booking/tripadvisor/hotels.com websites looking for that magical place! Guess what, I found it! The best about this place, and you will find it in every single review you read, is the owners - Camilla and Guido. It feels like coming home to your grandparents or parents depending on your age obviously:) They are absolutely welcoming and adorable, make you feel special and loved. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and will surely be coming back! Location is good as it's only 4-5 stops by bus to the city center (bus stop around the corner) and it's next to the massive park that during the warmer days is absolute vital, I've been told that during the summer the park is full of action! The house itself is awesome and if you are young couple or looking to bring that spark back into your relationship I would strongly recommend the room with the garden downstairs as it's so honeymoon style! You don't need to plan anything in advance in terms of the sightseeing as Guido will tell you all about Amsterdam, where to go and what to do. Don't hesitate to ask for any advice, help or guidance, the owners are always there for you to help! 5/5 experience and don't think twice if you want to make it a special treat for your other half, she will appreciate it! Camilla made sure that the big day would be magical and Guido has kindly bought the birthday cake and some candles! As the previous reviewer has correctly noticed, if you are looking for a home away from home in a historic, romantic and beautifully appointed house, with a suite that allows you the peace & tranquillity you require & you want to be treated not only like a foreign dignitary but as a member of the family this IS the place for you!
There are so many good things I can tell you about this place, but a lot of people did mention it already in the previous reviews, so I can only justify that it's all true!!! Anyway, you only need to read a few of them and take a look at the overall rating/pictures to make the best decision in your life!
Have a great stay ar Breitner House and send our regards to Camilla and Guido as we are surely be coming back!
P.S. If you want the best rates, go direct! There is the website for Breitner House and it should not be too difficult to find the contacts of Camilla or Guido.
All the best,
Alex and Jen
