This is an average B&B and is expensive, given the generally poor condition of the place. It could be so much better if the room and entrance was maintained properly. The bedroom had only one bedside lamp working and there were no globes in the overhead light. The wall paintwork was in poor condition amd there was a major crack... More

We stayed at B&B1657 in early May for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay very much. The rooms are spacious and well appointed and the owner is extremely friendly and helpful. It is situated directly opposite a beautiful canal and above a little bar. We had to climb a few steep and narrow sets of stairs to get to our... More

We stayed here right after they had opened, and weren't even able to stay the first night of our reservation due to a late flight in. When we showed up the next morning, the staff were more than apologetic, upgraded our room, and we ate and drank for free at the Toon restaurant next door for the rest of our... More

The location is on the corner of Herengracht, one of the nicest canals, and Utrechtstraat, so it is close to restaurants and cafes in Rembrandtplein, and a short walk from the Rijksmuseum or Dam Square, and about 20 mins walk from Central Station.

Sal and Els have the formula just right. Good communication and directions prior to arrival. Friendly welcome. Nicely done room and bathroom with ever-changing scene from the window. Great cafe (Toon) also owned by them for breakfast - have what you like. Free minibar, nuts, sweets, coffee-table books. Very good location for access throughout Amsterdam. Would definitely come here again.

When my husband and I first arrived to the B&B, we were in love with its decor - a bit rustic yet modern and cozy.
