Fantastic location and hosts

We (family of 5) loved our stay due to the great location across from Vondelpark and a quiet neighborhood. A nice bright room and comfortable beds allowed us to enjoy 4 beautiful days in Amsterdam. Plus having a full kitchen gave us to freedom to cook our own meals.

cozy and sharming B&B

Great B&B in a great location

Viajamos un grupo de 6 estudiantes de diferentes partes de España, el recibimiento fue genial, nos explicaron todo y los caseros fueron muy amables. Todas las habitaciones tienen Wi-Fi, el desayuno (delicioso) lo sitúan en la puerta de la habitación cada día al igual que la limpieza de la propia habitación. En la cocina siempre hay algo casero para comer entre horas. El lugar está muy bien situado, ya que esta próximo a los transportes públicos más concurridos, restaurantes, bares (Pubs). Totalmente recomendable. P.D:: Como punto negativo lo único que puedo destacar es que no se puede fumar en la habitación, pero por contraposición la casa tiene dos preciosos patios con mesas y sillas en los que si se puede fumar.

We will always remember our visit to Amsterdam and staying at the B&B. Our stay was wonderful! The room had everything we needed and location was convenient to Vondel Park for morning walks or runs. Very easy to get to local restaurants, stores and to the Museumplein. We appreciated all the little things you've provided---coffee, cereal, milk and pastries. Your homemade breakfast was fantastic. Everything was well organized and clean. We hope to visit again (PS - Thanks for all the extras!!)

Extra !

Nous avons séjourné chez Paul et Karen , durant 3 nuits avec nos 3 enfants . Nous avions l'appartement du 2ieme étage , très spacieux et lumineux . Le quartier est très agréable avec tous les commerces à proximité . Le centre ville d'Amsterdam est accessible à pied en traversant le Vondelpark, parc magnifique . Nous avons été accueilli par Paul , très chaleureux , qui a pris le temps de nous donner tous les bons plans et les bonnes adresses ! Le ménage est fait tous les jours et il est très agréable de découvrir une petite sucrerie sur les lits tous les soirs en rentrant ! Il y a du the , du café , des céréales et du lait à volonté . Une super adresse à recommander !

Beautiful family friendly area

Our family of 4 enjoyed a few nights at the Canal House which is a few minutes walk from Paul & Karens main bed & breakfast residence. It was self contained with 1 bedroom and 2 single beds in the living area. It was clean and comfortable with a good internet service. It is on the ground level with views over the canal from the living room windows. It was an easy 30 minute walk through the park into the city. The park itself is a great place to spend an afternoon with extensive play equipment for the children and a coffee shop for the adults. Cereal and milk was left for us for breakfast, along with a plentiful supply of local Gin for a night cap.

A very nice B&B

A very good place to stay! The room is nice and clean, and have good storage options for your clothes and things. In the hall outside the room is a little kitchen where you find milk, different kinds of cereals, coffe, tea and hot chocolate to make your own breakfast. There is also a fridge where you can keep drinks or food. The owner is welcoming and helpful. He gave us a lot of information about maps, the trams, parking the car with a low charge, and what to do in Amsterdam, etc. This is a B&B where we gladly would stay the next time we come to Amsterdam.

Lovely B&B

My husband, daughter and I stayed there for 6 nights and we had a wonderful experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the clean and large apartament, chocolates and the special gin that everyday delighted us. The location of the apartment was magnificent, in a quite area next to the canal with beautiful views and near the centre.My daughter enjoyed Vondelpark at 5 minutes walk from the apartment and the good restaurants near it. Without a doubt, we will repeat this B&B when we return to the beautiful Amsterdam.

This place is not only beautifully located on a lovely canal, it is central to everything. Vondelpark is a lovely walk,and in May when we were there had lots of flowers, cyclists and joggers. The room was large, clean and well thought out, with three large windows overlooking the canal. Paul was extemely helpful and a fount of knowledge. If we ever go back to Amsterdam this is where we will stay. Thanks, Paul. Ross Davidson & Christine van Rossum.
