This B&B establishment is located a short walking distance from th Museums square, it is just opposite a tram stop and close to a stop of the airport bus. The owner Karel is very nice and helpful (my wife left her bag with her purse and smart phone on the train and he spent more than an hour with us calling the Amsterdam Centraal andthe German train company (BD), and then called again a couple of days later, unfortunately to no avail). There is a kitchen witha stocked up refrigerator so that not only that you can prepare your breakfast but also eat later on in the day. The only drawback is that the rooms are up a narrow staircase and you have to carry your luggage up by yourself. The rooms are covered with coellections of items Karel, the avid collector has collected and put on display, some of them quite charming.
