I made my reservation through Booking.com. I mention this because my comments may not apply on reservations made on other sites/platforms. They show you a price, but oh wait! You have to add linen (yes, linen) and cleaning (these I sort of understand) fees, which in my case, added more than €45 to the total price. This information *is* on...

My sister and I have visited Amsterdam many times but we wanted to make this visit a bit different. Staying at Bij-de-Amstel completely enhanced the experience. The apartment was a great size for the two of us, and it was clean and the bathroom was excellent (no bath but that definitely wasn't an issue for us). There was a lovely...

Stayed here as hotels booked up. I'm not very picky normally. Told there was no lift so the stairs were fine. Really disappointed there was no wifi. Unacceptable as this was advertised and a vital selling point. Would not normally mind if away for a visit but as was in business this was no good. Tried to make contact with...

Indeed there was a disturbance with the WIFI connection, which could not be solved during your stay, as we explained several times. In the meantime WIFI is working perfect and I really feel sorry for you that it wasnot during your stay. We didnot know that this interruption of the WIFI would happen. We checked the lights and we couldnot...

Me and my boyfriend stayed 3 days at the B&B Bij-de-amstel. Honestly it was horrible! First of all they weren't expecting us, so the room wasn't CLEAN (we paid extra 35 pounds for cleaning on the arrival and the room was never cleaned while we stayed there) or READY .. basically the OWNER demanded us to carry the mattress up...

This accomodation is located in a residential part of Amsterdam so it is perfect if you do not want to stay in the hustle and bustle of the centre. However it is less than a 5 minute walk to the metro and then in only 10 minutes you will be back in the centre of Amsterdam. On arrival at the...

We stayed in the bed and breakfast for 3 nights in October and we really loved it. The room and en suite were spacious and very clean. The bed was really comfortable! The apartment is in a quiet residential area but is right on the metro line so it's very easy to get into the city. The owner, Willemien, was...

We stayed at the bed and breakfast for three nights. Willemien was helpful and kind. The room was clean and nicely furnished, with lots of light, overlooking quiet gardens. There was a ceiling fan as well, which was useful given the summer temperatures. There was no breakfast available, but in the room we had a boiler we could use, and...

It is a wonderful place to stay if you want to be on your own. Willemien was very kind and helpful. We had a wonderful time and recommend this place if you want to stay in a quite area in Amsterdam. The place is very near the metro and a small shopping place for your milk and bread.

We stayed in the bed&kitchen room for 4 nights, the room was quiet and noiseless and the location was in a residential quarter but very close to the metro stop. In the bathroom there was several towels and shower products so we didn't need to bring them from home. Nice and friendly, good price for the location and the provided...
