“Cosy Stay & Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

Just outside the tourist district next to the wonderful Vondelpark, and Museum square, the perfect location to find traditional Dutch shops and restaurants. Just outside 2 tram stops to help getting around in a couple of minutes.

Comfy apartmant with roof terrace, we got robes and slippers, very nice shower gel, a small fridge in the room with a suprise wine, and ofcourse tv and wifi.

Breakfast was almost as outstanding as Odette, who was so helpful on giving tips and making our stay even more plesent than it already was.

If you ever visit Amsterdam be sure to visit Odette's Bed&Breakfast Helmers! Perfect for solo travel, for couples and with friends!

Wish you all the best from Hungary!

Room Tip: Rembrandt room has a nice view on the street!

A very nice and atmospheric place to stay:
its located next Vondelparc, so its almost in the center. In front of the door two of the main TRAm are crossing. Within 5 min you are at the museum area, with Van Gogh Museuam or the Reiksmuseum. In 10 min you are in the center.
The are rooms ar cosy the bed is comfortable, the bathroom ( shared) was always clean and really good bodycare was provided.
Breakfast is taken to your room at the time you want it, you can be shure you won´t be hungry after that. (Odette aks even for your special diet).
A speciality is certainly the rooftop, with places to sit and "relax", with a nice view over the city.
All in all i can recommend this place very much!

Beautifully appointed rooms, exceptionally clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were great (Odette even gave up her XMAS morning to serve us breakfast), and Odette was so helpful with giving us tips on sights to see and places to eat, both before the trip and while we were there. The location is ideal for accessing all parts of Amsterdam (most within walking distance, biking or public transportation). One note of warning. If you have breathing issues, this may not be the place for you. There is no elevator, and many steps up to the rooms. Otherwise, it's a great way to stay in shape! I would love to come back in summer to enjoy the rooftop. I highly recommend Helmers to all.

Room Tip: Didn't see all of the rooms, but all are named for famous Dutch painters. We were in the Vermee...

with four friends having a separate room for everyone of us, we had a marvellous stay at Helmers. Owners are very friendly and helpful helping you out with pointing out good places to go to for food, drinks and much more. They also serve great breakfasts. The location is also very great, very near to, almost in the middle of, the centre and all the places you have to visit in Amsterdam. We certainly come back! And i almost forget to say that the rooms are very clean with comfortable beds and a superb bathroom and kitchen.
