“A home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

I feel Between Art and Kitsch B&B made our trip to Amsterdam incredibly enjoyable and effortless. It was so nice to return "home" after a full day of sight-seeing in Amsterdam, and decompress. This is so much better than a hotel room because we could cook in the kitchenette and relax in the spacious and comfortable rooms. Irene took good care of us and was able to offer tourist advice whenever we requested it. The location is fantastic, too--museums, tram lines, grocery store, cafes are all within easy walking distance. I completely recommend this B&B to people planning a trip to Amsterdam.

This was the ideal place for us as a young couple who wanted to explore amsterdam and stay somewhere nice! Comfy beds, no curfew, friendly and helpful hostess (Irene), walking distance to everywhere and self catering delicious breakfast provided! bargain!

The hostess of this B & B is as warm and charming as the city she is welcoming you to. The location is perfect; you are a 5 minutes stroll from the Rijk museum and trams to Central Station/Schiphol airport in one direction and a stroll in the other directions take you into many charming neighborhoods of the city you might not have explored otherwise.

Irene is extremely helpful with any questions you may have and we felt free to come and go as we pleased. It truly felt like we were staying with family. Don't forget to ask her for a taste of some typical Dutch cookies - you won't be sorry!

Had a really good stay at this B&B shortly after the new year. It is in a great location, you could easily stay local for evening meals and drinks if you wanted. Irene, the owner, was extremely friendly and welcoming and I was made to feel at home straightaway. The room was very well furnished and extremely clean, I really liked the decor and furnishings. he bathroom was great wit h a nice shower and plenty of towels.
The idea of having a self service kitchen area was a good one and was quite well stocked with breakfast food and drink with plenty of crockery etc.It certainly meant that you could have alie in if you wanted and still know that there was food available for breakfast.
I would definitely recommend staying here.

Leave aside the great location in the Pijp (minutes from Museum plein and albert kuyp market) and the beautiful rooms (only 2 of them but nicely renovated and very comfortable) but not often you meet someone like Irene, the owner of the place.
Such a kind and helpful lady that took care of everything we needed and was happy to help in every single minute, really makes the difference between a nice place to stay to a perfect one.
Yes, there are a few stairs to climb before you reach to the room but it doesnt take a bit from the excellent experience we had.
The kitchen is well supplied both with food and accessories, the rooms are big and clean and the shower is beautiful, so what else there is to say?
Don't hesitate!

We really enjoyed staying here. Wonderful position, so close to the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. 10 minutes from the touristy centre, right in a lively area (der Pijp) with a big market and lots of places to eat. Irena is very welcoming and an excellent host. Having a little kitchen suited us very well - we got food for supper from an Indonesia take-away round the corner. There was a good choice of food for breakfast but there was not fresh bakery goods every day. The actual accommodation was good but not excellent. The furniture was eclectically interesting - a welcome change from IKEA-type functionality. The wifi signal was too weak to be useful. It was sometimes a bit noisy at night. However I have no hesitation in recommending this b&B; we would use it again if in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: The red room looked bigger than ours.

My boyfriend and I recently spent several days traveling around Europe and stayed three nights at this charming B&B. Yes, there are a lot of stairs, but if you're relatively fit (read: not 800 lbs) and able bodied, it's not a big deal at all. Irene is the most amazing host. She made us feel right at home, showed us around the place and welcomed us to the fully stocked kitchen, and even helped us plan out our day trips. The room was just the right size for me and my boyfriend. The shower and toilet are in the same room, but there's a curtain so nothing actually gets wet. No, there weren't 800 thread count satin sheets, but the bed was very big and comfortable and we slept very well. If you want to pay 300 euro a night for someone to pick up your towels and put candies on your pillow, look elsewhere. If you want to feel at home in Amsterdam in a clean and comfortable space in a great location for a bargain price with a fantastic host, stay at Between Art and Kitsch!
