This is an incredibly quirky place to stay! Very central, 10 minutes brisk walk from Amsterdam Central station and although positioned right in the middle of the market square (look out for the daily market, including fresh cheese, meats etc.), the rooms were quiet and we all slept soundly!
The stairs.... impractical to stay here with elderly guests, disabled, even families with small children, however, for a group of (fairly) able bodied adults, it is a perfect base.
Rooms were clean, with plenty of towels and shower products. A small kitchen with fridge, stove top and microwave is compact and fits the bill for occasional meals in.
Dan responds quickly to emails and provided a very smooth and informative booking process. Breakfasts are taken just around the corner at Il Sogno and although the choices are limited, all provided fresh and with wonderful service. The young lady from Zans Schaans (?) an absolute delight, her attention to detail, ease of interaction and wonderful tour information, made our stay so much better and we all looked forward to seeing her in the morning! Dan- this young lady is a treasure!!

Room Tip: Best for central location

Great location right on Newmarkt square. Action every day! One block from famed red light district and a couple or a few blocks from everything! The studio apartments are simply charming in one of the sweet Amsterdam houses. Daniel the host is extremely helpful as are the ladies in their cafe. a big thank you to Margo for her over and beyond assistance. Breakfast included in the rate and very nice. Located around the corner from the metro! Wifi included!
The stairs up are narrow and steep but but but so are most of the old houses ... part of the era.
I'd not hesitate in returning to this property. I took a top floor studio located on the back - peaceful!

We stayed for a week and we fell in love with it.
It could not being in a better place, the Waag looks lovely, you have a cheap supermarket very close (ah) a bit noise but not loud.
Also breakfast incl was just perfect, you have 3 options to choose and they were lovely, all of them!
The staff there was helpful and very friendly, we loved the blonde girl who is studying Speech anf language therapist.

You can go everywhere from the loft, it gets a bit hot but it was OK.
We didn't have kitchen but a fridge and a ketttle were there!

We will be back, deffo! ❤️

The place is a 15 min walk away from the central station, and just like 30 metres away from the metro entrance of Nieuwmarkt station.

There are tons of bars and eateries all around, and some are open till late at night even. Surprisingly, there were also a lot of shops selling Asian food.

However, this also meant that you would get a bit of noise in the evening, as the B&B is just above Club Cotton, which only closes at around 1am? We could also hear footsteps from the room above us quite distinctly.

The room was clean, spacious, and cosy. The bed was actually 2 twin beds pushed together, but that wasn't an issue at all. It would have been better if there were a small rack beside the shower for placing toiletries, as well as some floor mats, but other than that we had all the amenities we needed.

The free breakfast menu at Il Sogno was quite limited, but food was good.

Daniel is a friendly host and helped familiarize ourselves with the area.

All in all, we loved the place and would definitely go back if we ever visit Amsterdam again!
