4 nights in Amsterdam

3.8 on July 20, 2014

The location of our apartment was great other than being on a tram route which made it quite noisy with the windows open but, closed there was no problem other than it got a bit warm. The fan took care of that. The bedroom is very small but, we really didn't care. We were there to explore the city. The furniture in the living area was a negative for us. After spending hours walking around we wanted to be able to "crash" and were not able to get comfortable on these little seats. As a warning…the stairs into the apartment are STEEP! It was difficult getting our luggage up and down but, daily we got used to it. All in all the apartment worked for us because it was a lot cheaper than staying in a comparable apartment. Yvone (owner) was a sweet heart and was there to welcome us and give us some insight into the area with a map and restaurant recommendations. She made it clear she was available if we needed anything. She even called our taxi driver to confirm he would be picking us up.

nice and stylish apartment

It is a very nice apartment in an old building so full of character, the leaving area bigger than I expected. Loved the windows- the apartment was light and bright even when it rained, but double glazing provided good soundproofing from the street noise. Liked real wooden floors, bathroom all tiled and very clean. Very friendly owner. I would highly recommend this apartment !

"Just Perfect"

A real find in Amsterdam

Lovely apartment, spacious, bright everything you could possibly want - fantastic location and friendly, helpful owners. Would highly recommend this and would stay on any future trips to Amsterdam. One recommendation is to take smaller bags, the stairs are typically dutch and VERY steep.

Wonderful appartement

The apartment was located in an ideal position within easy walking distance to attractions, a tram stop outside and the railway station close by. The apartment had everything needed for a comfortable stay. The staircase did present a slight challenge because of its steepness. Small drawbacks were the lack of space in the bedroom with the beds being right up against the walls and no hair dryer provided.

Innkeeper Response
Dear guests, We are very pleased to hear that u enjoyed THE Apartment and your stay in Amsterdam. We are sorry you did not ask us About the hairdryer because we have a beautiful one in the cupboard of the apartment. Also, the first floor apartment has two bedrooms, one small cozy separated bedroom to sleep in or you have the choice to sleep in the large ensuite living of 40 pm2. The small bedroom is usually used as an extra room for families. The large ensuite living also has two high quality box spring beds available with sheets. Or, should you come again, you can also stay in our 2nd floor apartment which is more of a large suite. We hope to see you again in Amsterdam!! Best regards, Christa and yvon

Business stay

I stayed in this delightful appartment whist in Amsterdam on business. It is very comfortably furnished with everything you could wish including tea and coffee. There is a lively bar downstairs and a bakery next door so no need to travel too far. However it is very convieniently located for Central Station and Dam square. Yvon one of the owners was very helpful and gave a warm welcome. Tony.

B&B "La vie en Rose" review

This apartment is located in the heart of Amsterdam, within 5-minute walk from Dam square. Supermarket and variety of restaurants is located on the street passing by. However, it is as quiet as it could be in Amsterdam at night. This apart gives you possibility to live in of those picturesque old houses with a full view of Nieuwezijdsvoorburgwal Street. The owners live in the same house and provide full friendly support The value for such central and spacy place is outstanding We with my parents were very satisfied and happy with this Aprtment.

Cosy and homely apartment in the center of Amsterdam! Yvon and Christa do everything to make you feel at home. We did not feel like we were staying in a busy capital. If you wish, they also have good information about where you can eat. The 9 streets, Chinatown, and the Haarlemmerstraat we found very nice for shopping. It is something different than the usual big stores that you see everywhere. The tip of yvon to rent bikes we could appreciate. You can see a lot in a short time without blisters under your feet. I can definitely recommend it. Mart, Vana and our son Kris

Wonderful Experience!!

We were only able to stay one night at La Vie en Rose B&B, but will definitely return when visiting Amsterdam. After a stressful drive through the city to return our rental car, we were greeted with such warmth and friendliness that we were raring to set out again to explore the city. The apartment was perfect for our needs - it was like staying at a friend's house. At the airport the next morning, my daughter discovered she had left her phone behind in the room. Her flight was boarding (my flight was leaving a few hours later) and I told her I'd ask Yvon and Christa to ship it to her in New York. Yvon actually met me at the airport - almost incurring a $200 euro parking ticket - and returned it to me. I can't imagine any other hotel or B&B doing that. What wonderful people!
