We spent two nights at Lesley's beautiful house. The location is excellent. There is the best view of the Canal and walking distance to most of the points of interest. The breakfast is fabulous, nice presentation and yummy taste. Lesley is very friendly and knowledgeable, her recommendation of walking routes are so well that you don't have to get on any form of transportation and can see the central Amsterdam in a day or two (that's the only time we got). The climbing of the staircases may be a challenge to some people, but the top floor room is very comfortable and nice. The room in the basement is only a few steps away from ground. My friends found it a bit cool and not enough light, they recommend that if the basement room would be printed in more white, it would be much brighter. Overall, we have a lovely time in Lesley's place, we highly recommend this B & B.
