+ The warm welcome from Ralph and Kitty, and their advice on what to do and how to get there was really appreciated. Kitty's breakfasts were excellent - it was just a pity we had to leave so.much appetising food uneaten! Our room was also really nice, looking straight out over a canal and its ducks.
- I didn't realise it was so far out of town, or in an area without restaurants. The tram and metro are very close, fortunately, but it is a 30-minute ride to Amsterdam Central. And I'm surprised that no one in previous reviews mentioned that there's nowhere to eat in the area, apart from a kebab takeaway. That's not a problem once you know about it - there are a few restos 10 mins away on the tramline between Mercator and Marco Polo - but we were caught unprepared on our first night.
Breakfasts were excellent

+ Rhalf and Kitty were the best hosts anyone can ask for. Rhalf gave us an detailed guide from the local's eyes to Amsterdam when we first arrived which was amazing and very much helpful. And as the weather was unstable when we were staying, they also provided us tips on what to do. The rooms were very clean, the facilities comprehensive, and they tidy the room for you every day. The breakfast is also worth noting as it is not only sumptuous but also that they change what they provide every day so one can never get bored. I enjoyed the breakfast very very much. In general, Rhalf and Kitty are very professional in greeting guests yet their hospitality makes you feel like you're at home.
- It is a twenty minute ride from the central station, but it isn't much of an inconvenience. May have to share breakfast table with other guests. (which may be a plus, depending on your personality)
The best hosts anyone can ask for

+ Rhalf and Kitty were amazing - when we first arrived, Rhalf gave us a very detailed overview of a ton of things to do in AMS, along with a map marking the spots. The room was amazing and sparkling clean, with a beautiful view of the canal. The place is super close to tram, making it very easy to get around the city. The breakfast itself was a delicious traditional Dutch breakfast, with more food than you can eat. Rhalf and Kitty are the best hosts ever - you're missing out if you don't stay here.
- Nothing - the stay was perfect.

+ This is my first experience with B&Bs and surely it'll be the first of many. I loved the reception they do where they explain the city map for us and recommend the best places. Breakfast was great as well, we could eat fine food and chat with our smart and kind hosts. It is nice to sit on the table among the other visitors, I appreciated the friendly atmosphere. The public transport is very close too. I can only praise this experience, really.

Positive Experiences: B&B Amsterdam West was a highlight of our days in Amsterdam. Rhalf and Kitty offer a relaxed and hospitable stay, something that really makes a part of your days in the city - and maybe contribute to understand it better. The house is very well furnished and newly refurbished, we didn't have any problems with any of the facilities. The room was tidied up with the utmost care every morning - even our small baby noticed that her new Artis zoo puppet had been put to sleep after we left. Breakfast is abundant and consumed in a friendly and cozy atmosphere, in which you really feel at home - something rare nowadays in B&Bs. The house is outside the centre but very well connected to practically anywhere in the city. The rooms are just on a canal bank, so you can even row to the city centre in the summer, and ducks come to your window to be fed. I have a decent experience in B&Bs and I cannot recommend it enough Amsterdam West - actually it made me wish I could start my own B&B!
True B&B experience, great in every

Positive Experiences: We just got back from a wonderful stay in Amsterdam. Our weekend away was much more fun due to the helpfulness of Rhalf and Kitty who run a wonderful bed and breakfast place not far from the town centre. They offer a wonderful and extensive breakfast that keeps you going all day long. They are helpful about suggesting places to go and visit. It was clean and friendly. My husband and I would highly recommend this as a place to stay. It is right on a canal and 2 minutes walk from a tram line which takes you straight into the centre of Amsterdam.
Friendly helpful place to

The best B&B in Amsterdam!
“The couple who run this B&B are by a long stretch the two most hospitable, friendly and just all round lovely people we have had the pleasure of staying with on our 10 week trip through Europe.
"The bike tour and breakfast are wonderful! The room is clean and bed is very comfortable! I have a great time in the B&B!!"
