I have just come back from a weekend in Ámsterdam and André could not have made my friend and I feel more welcome! We both arrived at different times and quite late at night, but there he was waiting for us with a big smile on his face! Folks, this is NOT a hotel but 2 romos within someon's house so please inform them of your expected time of arrival as they have busy lives too. Our room was on the ground floor with all the commodities you would expect: comfy beds, powerful shower, hair dryer, fridge, satellite TV, heating..etc. The B&B is in a tiny pedestrianised Street so there is NO noise at all, and yet entertainment is just round the corner. We arrived without a hitch following the instructions on the website of how to get there from the airport. Train from airport to Ámsterdam Central was about 4.50 euros and then the tram was about 2.50. Jordaan is by far the best neighbourhood to stay in if you don't want to be surrounded by loud tourists. The área is so pretty and you get a glimpse of true Dutch life here, but still only a 10-15 minute walk into the centre. After a wonderful 1st night's sleep, we went upstairs to the kitchen for breakfast. WOW! It was so quaint and there was absolutely every kind of food and drink you could want, all laid out perfectly. We only had breakfast there as we wanted to try many different restaurants for lunch and dinner, but André said we had access 24 hours a day. Cereal, bread, eggs, ham, cheese, tomatoes, beer, juice, coffee, tea...etc. André is such a warm-hearted guy and we were delighted that he came and entertained us with stories of his life while we ate breakfast. I just can't recommend this place enough. It really was so much better tan a hotel. No restricting breakfast times, just a warm atmosphere.
