My husband and I wanted to experience Amsterdam the way people who live there do and this B&B certainly provides that in a lovely, typically Dutch canal house. Be prepared for climbing some steep stairs but worth it when you get up there.
Our large room on the top floor was very nice and the street was a wonderful street, primarily residences but close to everything including the Stop and Go bus and some exceptional restaurants.
Our hostess was very helpful and gave us plenty of advice about getting around. She even had decorated Easter eggs for us on Easter Sunday. It was a good value in a quiet, convenient location.

Our very quiet street joins the Amstel River to the Utrechtsestraat which has more than 18 cafes, restaurants and bars. The house retains its features and character but has all modern amenities required for the comfortable stay of our guests. ... more less
