The communication with Taufik when booking our room was excellent, and he was most helpfull when answering our enquires. At the time of staying Taufik was unavailable but his very friendly neighbour was on hand to welcome us on our arrival
This B & B is located approx 30mins walk from Amsterdam central station, and is over the road from the Rijksmuseum. The front door is a wooden door with a small brass plaque on the side, there are no large signs outside so it does not stand out at first glance.
As Taufik was away we were given a discount as breakfast was not available, we were also given tickets to a boat ride from the nearest dock.
We chose to stay in the contemporary suite and were very happy with the way it looked. There is a bedroom with a seprate living room which are decorated with artistic flair. The bed was incredibly comfortable and was very welcome following our long days walking around Amsterdam.
In the morning the views of the Rijksmuseum out the windows were very beautiful and the street below was reasonably peaceful. We also had access to the roof balcony although this is kept locked after 10pm at night to keep noise to a minimum for the neighbours.
Overall I would thoughroughly recommend staying here, athough as with many places in Amsterdam the steps are very steep and the rooms at the Blue moon are at around 3 flights up.8//9
