This is a great choice for a B&B if you're going to stay in Amsterdam. It's all been said in other reviews, but it deserves to be said again. I'll try and make it short. For those who don't want details, I would just say it's wonderful.
Ralph and Kitty are so welcoming and warm. We were met at the airport for the small extra charge of 15 euros by kitty. Ralph sat us down and gave us lots of useful information and a map. Whenever we needed directions or opening hours or train schedules, or good places to eat during our 4 night stay, they provided it. Even gave us a computer print out once.
Our room was the one with a door to the canal and the terrace. It was airy, light, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Everything one could need was there, including plates, bowls and cutlery. Even a little kitchenette, with microwave, and refrigerator, and jugs of chilled water. We watched the small boats going by.
Breakfast is a sight to see, with a great choice.
Getting to anywhere in the city was easy. There are trams close-by.It takes about 20 minutes to the centre. And there are stops before that, with nice little shops and restaurants, The Metro is about 3 minutes away.
The Wi-fi signal is strong.
OK so the shower and the two toilets are shared with the only other room, but this was never a problem. If you have to have en suite facilities, go somewhere else, but you'll be missing a really nice place to stay.
We had some nice and very interesting discussions on many different things with Ralph and Kitty. My wife at one stage mentioned how she loved cherries, but that they were always expensive in England. Kitty very sweetly got her some when she went to the supermarket!
All in all we loved our stay here and would highly recommend it
