I travelled to Amsterdam with a friend for a long weekend and thought long and hard where to stay. Finally found a B&B with great location and we decided to give it a try. And this place is amazing!
There are three reasons why I will stay at this place for my next visit.
First is the location – it’s situated on the canal and you are close to everything, max 20 min walk to the farthest places in central. We have
Second is the house – it’s a good example of old Dutch architecture (inside and out) and owners good choice of art also tributes to the wau effect. There were so many things that charmed me about this house: bench in front of the house to enjoy sunshine and coffee; the chandeliers, the narrow wining staircases, the interior of the room and the list goes on and on.
Third is the owner – Such a relaxed and easy to talk to person. He welcomed us, showed the room and had already a map ready and showed all the places you’d want to visit, also suggested good places to eat or have a drink.
