We stayed here for 2 nights in July 2005. Our room was spacious, very clean and decorated in a nice, quirky way. The bathroom is actually in the room - not adjoining - but it has been done well and didn't detract from the ambience.
This B & B has a fantastic location, just a few minutes walk from the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. The tram is nearby and there are quite a few bars and restaurants in the area. Breakfast (served in the room) was fine. There is a proper kitchen for communal use right next to the room, with a fridge, coffee maker, etc.
The B & B is on the third floor, but anyone in reasonable shape shouldn't have a problem with the stairs. Allergy sufferers should be aware that the landlady has a friendly little dog and, apparently, a cat. The B & B isn't non-smoking (the landlady smokes).
Our only real complaint with "Between Art & Kitsch" was the noise level at night. A major road seems to run along the other side of the canal, and the traffic kept us awake. The windows blocked the noise out, but it was just too hot when we were there to keep them closed. All in all, we thought this B & B was pleasant and reasonably good value, but if we decided to use it again, we would definitely pack earplugs!
