“Wanted to really love it”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

We have just spent a well earned weekend away in Amsterdam. Martin our host was realy friendly and helpful. I always read trip advisor reviews and fully expected this place to be lovely from the reviews. The room was great, very clean and a plentiful supply of food in the fridge. Bed was comfy. The location was great, a small walk to restaruants and easy trams into the city.The only thing letting this place down, sadly was a major thing for me. The noise! It was the first weekend I think of the summer holidays and the weather had finally come good, but the noise for the 2 nights was pretty much constant. We had people sat oustide our window enjoying the warm evening but until the early hours, we had revellers from the clubs shouting their way down the road during the night, but I think the worst was the door next to us, the same B&B, where some folks came in at 6am (after suffering a broken sleep already), the footsteps were very loud above us, doors closing, talking. Sadly it was too much and I have come home very sleep deprived. Maybe in the out of season months I can imagine this place is peaceful and a great place to stay.
Sorry I couldn't be more positive, but if you like your sleep, not the place to go

Great location, within walking distance off all the attractions. It is located on a very quiet street which is easy to find. Martin, the host was wonderful, very helpful and very friendly. Nothing was too much trouble, from holding an umbrella for my wife in the rain to translating some old Dutch birth records for me. The room itself was very clean and suited all of our needs perfectly. We stayed for 3 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. We will definitely stay here again.

Martin is a very good and attentive host. Joyce, Martin's business partner, 'the power behind the throne', is lovely and very helpful. :)
We had a vey comfortable studio, well appointed. The fridge was replenished everyday and Martin and Joyce catered for our specific requirements. This is self-catering, no cooked breakfasts but this is just perfect! Cleaned and towels refreshed during the week but seems to not be done on weekends.
Near to a good organic shop, bakery, grocery and Martin recommends some excellent restaurants. There's a great soup shop nearby, Soup Enzo. (I think)
Good public transport links but easy to walk to Van Gogh, Rijk's museum and many other attractions.
Try to book the apartment on the 2nd floor as we had a rather heavy-footed night-owl above us but this didn't detract much from this lovely place.

Room Tip: Choose the studio in the 2nd floor, if possible.

I stayed here in January and had a fabulous stay. The apartment was nice and clean, the decor was nice and it's centrally located on a quiet street. The owner, Martin, was really welcoming and gave some good advice on where to go and some history on the city too. I'd definitely stay here again.

Me and a friend stayed in Kien Bed & Breakfast Studio's for 3 nights by the end of November, 2011. The studio is spacious and like a home to us for all the facilities equipped. The breakfast is actually self-serviced with all the bread/ cheese/ eggs/ milk/ juice and other drink restored in the refridge and get refreshed everyday, We both enjoy this freedom to cook for ourselves every morning with no time limit.

The location is nice and resided in a quiet environment, away from noisy part of city center, but easy to access every attraction. Martin, the owner, has also had prepared much information for the guest to enjoy Amsterdam no matter only a day trip or others. And if you have any enquiry, he is also very kind to help you find some solutions.

Staying in Kien Bed & Breakfast is really a nice experience, and also recommended.

I have traveled to Amsterdam and know it very well. Kien B&B is conveniently located in a quiet, but central part of Amsterdam. Therefore it is recommendable for first time visitors and ITK of Amsterdam as well. The studios are tastefully designed and on the minimalist side. Martin (the owner) is very kind and helpful. I would recommend it to everybody. Of course to enjoy any city the best you should stay at you hotel as little as possible!
