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.
If you really want to do something to return their lovely hospitality I suggest you book through their website rather than booking.com or TripAdvisor. They will appreciate that.”
The accommodation exceeded expectations
" Amazing stay that really influenced the trip! Rhalf and Kitty were such great hosts and took the time to help us make the most of our stay. The space was out of this world nice- clean and huge with a beautiful sitting area right on the canal. The accommodation exceeded expectations. I cannot recommend staying here enough!!"
