Passing our house on the Amstel river, people often tell us: "this is my absolute favourite place to live in the city." We are lucky indeed—and now ready to share the experience of this unique place and neighbourhood. Only 7 minutes to the city center by bike; an ideal setting to experience the bustling city of Amsterdam. We offer a room with a high-quality boxspring bed, bathroom with toilet, bathtub, kitchen, wireless internet connection, lounge area, and access to rooftop terrace that offers a great view over the city and the river. The house sits on the river bank where you will see joggers, bikers, and Amsterdammers taking a leasurely walk. We are within a few minutes walk to metro and train stations; a wide variety of (grand)cafés and restaurants, and a small but fully stocked neighbourhood store and a supermarket are nearby. The famous open-air Albert Cuypmarket is a few minutes by bike or less than 15 minutes walk. On request we serve a full breakfast (on the rooftop weather permitting) with whole wheat bread from Hartog, the country's best baker, and home-made jam, cheese, eggs, freshly squeezed orange juice, yoghurt and fruit. We use organic and local produce whenever possible. For longer stays ask for details and prices.

It was very nice holidays spent last August with my boyfriend. We didn't know this country, but thanks to the warming welcoming of Sven and his family, the beautiful weather, we spent a romantic time together. I really appreciate Amsterdam, with nice houses, good people with always good mood !! :) I will go back soon, for sure ! We also appreciate the terrace on the upper level, to have a beautiful view of Amsterdam. This B&B was located close to the citycenter (around 20-25 minutes by feet) and it was clean. So, thank you, Sven, allowed to give us this opportunity to visit your charming city.

I had a wonderful 10 day stay at B&B 105. Sven and Ruth were wonderful hosts and I loved having the two cats wondering into my room and lying on the bed. the place is spotless and the metro and shops a short walk away. It is a 5 minute Metro ride into Amsterdam which is really convenient and an evening walk along the canal in front of the B&B in either direction is a delight. Though Breakfast was offered for a reasonable rate I chose to rather do the meals myself . There is a lovely little kitchen with all the required kitchen utensils to enable one to either cook a meal or make a nice salad. I would highly recommend this B&B - Heather Tucker, Western Cape, South Africa

I was delighted with my stay at B&B 105. The host is extremely accommodating while at the same time quite informal and pleasant. I almost felt like I was staying with a friend. While it's not in the center, it's a fairly easy walk along the Amstel River--or take the Metro: it's just a block from a Metro stop with very fast access to the center, and the Metro is easy to use. The apartment is beautifully appointed and you even have a kitchenette. There are two friendly cats (a plus for me but not for everyone). You have to walk up a few flights of very steep steps (which to me is part of the charm). Exceptionally lovely rooftop garden. The host serves a lovely continental breakfast and offers plenty of choices. I could not have been more pleased.

We stayed at B&B105 over Christmas '09 and had a fantastic time. The proprietors were incredibly friendly and accomodating. I was amazed at the quality of the lodgings for the rate, and the bed in our room was really comfortable. Breakfast was served at the time of our choosing and was plentiful as well as delicious! Cleanliness is obviously important here, as everything was spotless (especially the bathroom). Highly recommended.
