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 best hosts ever
"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."
