Very nice place, near the city centre, the rooms are comfortable with original decor, Irene is a great host and cat lovers will find a lovely cat to welcome them. Delicious breakfast, good view. Absolutely recommended!

Very comfortable beds! Great shower! Fresh bread and snacks from the deli delivered daily! Famous market just around the corner! A quick walk to Vondel Park! Great location! Great local pub on the corner - what more could you ask for!! Oh ya - amazing helpful hosts! Irene and her husband are great people - they went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful stay!
If you aren't physically fit to walk up 2.5 flights of stairs to get to the room you'll have to give this one a miss. But for all the healthy people out there - nothing wrong with a bit of extra exercise!

I stayed in this B&B for 3 nights while attending a business conference in May.

As expected, the place has quirky decor and the typical steep Amsterdam stairs. The location is fantastic, just across a canal from the Van Gogh museum.

It was a great quiet, place to sleep, very comfortable, good showers, etc

The host, Irene was very accommodating - providing loads of advice on where to go and what to see. Also, there were always nice pastries and fruits for breakfast.

Overall, I think it's a fantastic B&B.

Irene the owner was really helpfull, she could give me lot of advices on publics transportations and on what to visit in Amsterdam. There is also a lovely white cat which is living there, so then pets' lovers would be enchanted
I recommand this bed and breakfast.

I loved Amsterdam all the more thanks to the hospitality of "Between Art and Kitsch". It's a funky and relaxed little place along a canal, and the location is fairly central, but not too central. It has three rooms with views the Rijksmuseum. Nearby are many attractions, including a market and the city's biggest park, and there is also a place to rent bicycles. All the staff are friendly, including the cat. Irene, the owner, is kind, helpful, interesting to talk to, and knowledgeable about the city. She made some recommendations about things I wouldn't have known otherwise. There is a fully-equipped kitchen, and everything was clean and tidy. The rooms are furnished, and the whole place is cozy and welcoming. There was a thunderstorm one evening, and I had a great time curling up with a book and cup of tea in the room with the sound of the rain outside. In short, it had everything I needed for a great visit to Amsterdam. I will go back the next time I visit. Highly recommended!

We were two couples who went to Amsterdam for a four night stay at Irene’s B&B and so we took 2/3 of the rooms. It’s a quirky place but the stairs are not bad as some say and there were no queues for breakfast. You get your own breakfast from a good selection of foods provided and if you need more or something different just ask. All of the rooms have tables for 2 and ours had one for 4 so we all ate breakfast together at a time to suit us. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were serviced daily with new towels. Irene was helpful and made some good suggestions for restaurants and bars. Between Art and Kitsch is in an excellent location – minutes away from both the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum; on a canal, close to one of the best markets, bars and restaurants. Tram stops are close so most areas are easy to get to. We walked to Anne Frank’s house from here, in fact we didn’t use the tram, apart from getting there on day 1 until 24 hours before we left. The area had the feel of the Parisian Marais and was wonderful for exploring with the occasional café stop. A good way to escape the frenzy of the Jubilee!

Room Tip: Of the two larger rooms one has a wet room and one a full bathroom - take your pick!
