5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2011

My boyfriend treated me to a surprise four day stay in Amsterdam for my 40th - not only was it a fantastic present in itself but staying at the Heren B&B made it absolutely perfect! We were greeted by Vlad and given all the info we required about staying at the B&B but lots of very helpful suggestions for our stay too. The accomodation is second to none, we stayed in one of the rooms which was perfectly equipped and incredibly clean. There are 'public areas' where guests can relax in a living room and use the kitchens so you actually feel like you're staying in a grand house rather than just lovely a room. All in all the hosts, house, location and the fabulous breakfasts made our stay first class and we will definately be returning for more of the same! This is the only place I have recommended to numerous family & friends with a cast iron guarantee that it will be as perfect for them too.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room but looked at one of the apartments which looked gorgeous too.

We stayed in the apartments overlooking the Singel Canel. Unfortunately we had to switch from the top apartment to the first floor half way through the visit - this wasn't problematic but due to the quick turnaround, the first floor wasn't perhaps quite as clean as the top floor one. We were offered breakfast for the inconvenience of the switch however which was a nice touch. The service is professional - if you are not looking for overbearing hosts, this will suit (as a good alternative to B&Bs).

Otherwise, the location is superb, and the apartments make for a great independent stay. Recommended.

My husband and I stayed at one of the apartments of Heren B&B for a few days last June. We simply loved it. The place is comfortable, spotless clean, tastefully decored, all appliances new and excellent quality from the mattress to the floors! Besides, we had an outstanding view over Singel Canal, with an amazing sunlight in the afternoons. The location is perfect: walking distance from almost everything in a city where walking is a dream. Thanks very much to Vlad for having everything ready as agreed. No ugly surprises at all! This will be my rental when I am back in Amsterdam, undoubtfully!!

My boyfriend and I just returned from a 10 day visit in Amsterdam and the fabulous Heren Bed and Breakfast. It could not have been lovelier--wonderfully stylish, quiet and private room with spectacular shower, comfortable bed, fresh flowers every day and a scrumptious breakfast, all with a perfect, central location. It was nearly like having our own apartment in Amsterdam--only with the added bonus of a wonderful and HUGE breakfast prepared for us--complete with living room overlooking the Singel canal and a simply beautiful kitchen for guest use where we cooked a couple of lovely dinners from the local organic market that Vlad told us about. Despite the B&B being entirely booked, we barely saw anyone else--except at breakfast and our privacy was very well respected (something you definitely do not get at a lot of bed and breakfasts).

Amazing! Everything was just perfect and Ken and Vlad are the perfect hosts and so helpful during our stay, full of wonderful advice and recommendations. They even offered to arrange an emergency dentist visit for us (thankfully, we ultimately did not need to take them up on their offer.)

Don't look further. Stay here!

Having myself visited Amsterdam 4 times , my husband 6, when we decided to come here with our 3 kids and were looking for an apartment: The place was found in Tripadvisor and we agree with all the former comments: This is it!
We stayed 10 nights at the Herenstraat apartment (ground floor), with short walking distance just anywhere, very nice shops around, quiet street (mostly bikes...), Jordaan as well really near... The tram stops are not too close but on the other hand you can easily walk all the way! The main Railway station is easily reachable - we visited for instance Haarlem and Leiden + Keukenhof - but not too near for causing any inconveniences.
As having an apartment we were able to have our breakfasts and suppers without any fuss. On the other hand our kids loved tasting all the specialities of various kitchens available in Amsterdam during lunchtime.
We also loved the old building and its unique atmosphere. For our children seeing this type of surroundings is as well an experience itself. But if you are afraid of narrow corridors, staircases that wouldn´t match any standards of today etc. you´d better find some other place.
As we know Amstedam fairly well we did not need too much advice but anyway it was crystal clear: Our hosts were real professionals, most hospitable and worth all the praise written about them earlier in Tripadvisor. And they have kept the prices really affordable...

If there only were several places like this where to stay!

I should have done this months ago, but just never got round to it. We stayed at Heren's extension, Maes B&B, in March 2009 for three nights, and we had a great time. Our room was more like a little suite with an enormous bathroom on the top floor. The bed was one of the most comfortable that we have ever slept in at any hotel or B&B. Breakfast was a great start to the day with an incredibly choice & only the nicest things. It was fun to share the kitchen table with other guests and have some nice conversation before starting our day. The owners and staff were very nice and helpful, and we fell in love with the little Italian restaurant that they recommended.
Personally, I think that the part of Amsterdam that the B&B is located in is one of the nicest and quietest to be staying as a tourist, and very close to all the main attractions and the city centre. Also, we did check the general price level for accommodation in Amsterdam, and Heren B&B is very much in the (lower) average, while providing a truly excellent service. Next time we need a place to stay in Amsterdam, they will definitely be our first choice!

My husband, toddler and I stayed in the attic room at Heren B&B. It's a large room with separate sleeping and living areas, and a refrigerator. The room was clean, well presented and as safe as a guest room can be for a toddler. The property is old (late 17th century) and has the steep, narrow stairs typical of old Amsterdam buildings. Our daughter loved climbing the three flights up to the attic room, and the door in the floor of the room meant that it could be closed and keep her from falling down said stairs.

The communal kitchen, terrace and complimentary computer were lovely and full of fresh flowers; the breakfasts were huge and delicious (especially the croissants and mini pancakes!); and the atmosphere relaxed and friendly -- especially good with a toddler.

Our hosts, Ken and Vlad, were friendly and incredibly helpful. We mainly saw Vlad and he was fantastic. This has been one of our best lodging experiences and we'll definitely recommend Heren/Mae's B&Bs to others -- as well as stay there again if we return to Amsterdam.
