“Perfect Spot for Amsterdam Base”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2011

We recently stayed at the B&B and found it was the perfect location and great value. For the location, it's centrally located with easy access to all the key tourist venues, but without being in the commercial tourist district. Staying at the B&B really allows for a sense of Amsterdam - whether it's the easy access to the market, or the numerous restaurants all within walking distance. As for the B&B itself, it's modern, clean, and the internal stairs just add to the character - again, allowing for a real sense of living in Amsterdam, rather than staying in a hotel. Jasper, one of the owners, could not have been nicer and more accommodating. He is a gem - very prompt to respond to requests/queries and genuinely wants to ensure guests enjoy their stay both in Amsterdam and at the B&B. We will definitely stay there again on our next visit (and have already recommended to friends).

I stayed in the B&B with a friend for a convention that took place in the RAI Amsterdam. This is a great alternative to an hotel in a great neighborhood just a little off the center.
Location: the B&B is located in the Pjip which is a "trendy" neighborhood in the middle between center town and the convention center. It is very comfortable for the convention center (10-15 minutes walk), the museums (10 minutes walk) and close to city center by tram (about 15-20 minutes total journey time, and you could also walk) . the neighborhood is much nicer than the busy touristic center. It is quiet, full of nice trendy cafes and bakeries and most places are for locals so we couldn't find any "Tourist traps" around. It is also very comfortable to get there from schiphol (take a 2.5Euro 10 minutes train ride to Amsterdam Zuid center and from there a taxi costs 10Euro, total journey time 20-25minutes).
The place itself: a very well maintained place in a typical Dutch building. There are two rooms, we stayed in the upper one which has a little common room with a kitchenette, table, sofa next to it, so we used it as an extension to the room. It's very quiet, the floor boards don't creek although it's from wood, and they clean and tidy every day. We didn't order breakfast but be aware that if you start your day early on weekends or public holidays most places around are still closed until at least 0900. The owner Jasper lives two minutes from the B&B so you actually don’t feel like you are in someone else's house, more like a little house of you own. He is very kind and helpful, and also checking out time is very flexible, especially if they have no guest in your room the day of your departure.
The only things you should pay attention too: the stairs are very steep like in many Dutch houses (climbing those 4 flights of stairs several times a day is like going to the gym), so for very old, very young or very sick this might be problematic. While the area is very nice it has remains of a once shady neighborhood – very close to the hotel, and very surprisingly, there is a little "annex" to the red light district which is even active during daytime so if those kind of thinks bother you.
All in all – highly recommended. Ideal for someone attending a convention in the RAI who doesn't want another boring characterless hotel. Very good for romantic couples and Also great for tourists wanting to stay a little out of the main hassle and bustle but close enough.

Jasper was a real help in carrying our luggage upstairs, thank god, i am close to 70, do not go there if you have a weight carry problem, 72 stairs, I counted them.
Breakfast was ordinary, bread provided was not suitable for toasting, small thin sliced loaf pieces which got lost in the toaster and when toasted were crispy crispy , eggs could only be boiled in a space age machine suitable for astronauts with 30 days training, came out soft or hard boiled, take your pick.
No facility for fried, poached or scrambled eggs, plus bacon, either is norm in all parts of Europe we travelled in. Cereal was oats or all bran bowel cleanser, no cornflakes or other cereals,
The other issue was the hand washing basin is in your room, away from the toilet/ shower, a bit different for standard hygeine facilities.
The facility has 2 rooms (balcony and top room) available for rent, but there were 2 guys from another apartment using the breakfast/dining area apparently for computer connection reasons , while this did not bother us, it was a specification not stated in the website.
In summing up, not luxury, we were disappointed that this facility was below the promoted status, but, hey, tell it as you see it.

We stayed at the Ostade B and B for three wonderful nights. Jasper makes the B and B totally warm and inviting. Lots of complimentary snacks and nice touches. Yes, it is Amsterdam and the stairs are steep, but the location is superb for getting trams, getting to museums and other sites, and enjoying living in a typical urban, residential neighborhood. Having the half-kitchen facilities in the room allows you to fantasize about actually living in Amsterdam. Hands down this is a superior option to staying in a cookie-cutter hotel.

We enjoyed our stay in this cosy and homely B&B.. the location was lively and very safe to walk around anytime. Far off better than the touristy areas in town. The rooms are well decorated and furnished with high style. Stayed in the studio room which had a kitchenette inside..very convenient especially with a toddler. We ordered breakfast for one day which served 2 of us quite well for 2 to 3 days.. the owner is a very friendly person and always ready to help. City center is about 15 mins ride by tram..tram stop is very close by. So , is a supermarket and nice eatouts. We enjoyed this place and recommend this to anyone who love a homely atmosphere.

Enjoyed our stay in the very spacious and clean balcony room. Very comfortable bed and lots of attention to detail, plus a very friendly, helpful and attentive host. Breakfast was simple but there was plently of choice and having a communal dining/kitchen/living room area meant that we were able to chat with the other guests. The secure parking space is definitely an added bonus.
In a quiet area in De Pijp but really easy to walk to the centre - or to take the tram. Plenty of little shops and restaurants in the area if you feel hungry and not inclined to go into the centre. All in all, a great stay and would definitely go back.
