Our lovely bed and breakfast is situated near to the Museum District and Vondelpark in the popular and vibrant 19th/20th Century residential neighborhood of Oud-Zuid.
From our bed and breakfast you can easily access the famous Museum Quarter with the Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum and Rijksmuseum. The major museums make this area a unique travelers paradise. Moreover, you will find here many luxury boutiques, cafés and the majestic concert hall, the world famous Concertgebouw from 1888. Because of its highly regarded acoustics, this concert hall is considered one of the finest venues for classical music worldwide. Leidseplein is right at the other end of the Vondelpark. This place is synonymous for nightlife till dawn. At Leidseplein you find the Stadsschouwburg, which is the main theatre, several cinemas, many bars, clubs and restaurants, as well as the famous music temples Paradiso and Melkweg.
Our accommodation is positioned very convenient and a relaxed, half hour walk through Vondelpark will take you to the high-cultural cluster at Museumplein and / or to the very heart of the entertainment area at Leidseplein.
In the surrounding neighborhood you can find everything that makes your weekend break in Amsterdam comfortable and enjoyable. In walking distance there is a wide selection of cafés and delicious take-away. Restaurants range from Thai, Japanese, Indonesian food, to Brazil and Surinam kitchen, a Kosher restaurant and various Italian places. There is an outstanding wine bar next door and a cocktail bar at the corner. In summer one might prefer the beer garden at Vondelpark (at the park entrance across the street). Walking down the street, there are many convenience stores including a well-stocked supermarket (during the week open until 10pm, on Sundays until 7pm), a couple of small grocery stores, several bakeries, an eco-food-store, an exquisite small corner shop with the most delicious ice-cream, and very important - a late night shop that is open until 1am. Next door is a bicycle repair shop that is renting bikes. The rental fee is €10 per bicycle per day.
Our bed and breakfast offers 2 guest rooms for 2 persons each on the second floor of our private house. One room has the size of 25 m2 (No.1), the other 16 m2 (No.2). The rooms are offered separately, but can be requested together. This offer concerns the larger room of 25 m2. The room is modestly furnished with some 1970s / 1980s furniture. It has a French bed with a good matrass. The two rooms share the bathroom which is equipped with a bath tub, washing stand and a toilet. Wireless internet is available.
Generally we don’t do breakfast and it is not included in the room rates. There are however two very recommendable cafés in close proximity, which open early in the morning. Using our kitchen for making coffee or tea is always possible.
Our family and child friendly accommodation has been visited by the authors of the German DUMONT travel guides (Amsterdam. DUMONT Reise-Taschenbuch and Amsterdam. DUMONT direkt) and is recommended in the 2012 edition and the forthcoming 2014 edition.
Public transport and parking:
Our bed and breakfast is easily accessible with public and private transport. The tram lines no.1 and 2 have stops in close proximity to our house and connect straight to the Central Station at the IJ-embankment. The motorway exits S106-S107-S108 are close-by and the international Airport Schiphol is located in 12,5 km distance, easily accessible by train.
Street parking in our area costs €3 per hour or €21,60 per day (Mo-Sa; Su free parking). Alternatively, in close vicinity to our house, at the northern side of the 1928 Olympic Stadium is a municipal park and ride facility (P+R). Parking in the P+R facility after 10am during the week and during the weekend costs €1 per 24 hours. Parking during the week before 10am costs €8 for the first 24 hours and then €1 per 24 hours. You may leave your car up to 96 hours (4 days) in the garage. Since this is a park and ride facility and the low-priced parking is connected to the use of public transport, it is important that the last check-in with the public transport chip card has been in the center area. If this is not the case, the regular parking fee per hour is applied. The public transport ticket (OV chip card) must be purchased separately at the ticket machine available in the garage.
Welcome to our laid-back, "smoke friendly" house, where you will find a vaporiser in almost every room. It is Amsterdam after all and you'll find us in the heart of it.
We live on the lovely Keizersgracht canal and you will find us on the corner with Utrechtsestraat, just two blocks south of Rembrandtplein. So you'll find plenty of local bars, restaurants, cafes and coffee shops just around the corner.
The #4 Tram stops just outside our front door, but there is no need to buy a Tram pass as we are within walking distance to pretty much everything you are coming to see. We also have some bicycles that we are more than happy to let you use free of charge. Just let us know when you arrive. It's a fun and safe way to explore the city.
Our house is the whole 5 floor canal-side building. It's an old building that's been decorated in an eclectic and quirky style. We have divided up our house into a few single and double rooms, both with and without en-suites and a few larger self contained units we call apartments. All The rooms/apts are off a common stairway and share the same entrance, but the room/apt is your own private space that you do not need to share with anyone.
At the top of our house is our Penthouse "Apt.", offering funky loft style living in the centre of Amsterdam.
We do not have an elevator in the building, so be prepared for a little climb.
The Penthouse is essentially a large room at the top of the house with a fully equipped kitchen. The bathroom and shower are in the main room just off to the side. It's a funky open plan design, so it does not provide much in terms of privacy.
On the upper mezzanine level there is a double bed that can comfortably sleep two.
Best of all the penthouse benefits from it's own outdoor patio. It's a perfect place to sit and relax when the weather is nice and there is even a BBQ that you can use.
There is a computer in the room for you to use that is connected to the internet and a server full of movies and shows for you to watch.
Free Secure WiFi is also available throughout the building. Just ask us for the password when you arrive.
We also provide sheets and towels, so you just need to bring the soap :)
We live in the building downstairs, so we are usually around if you need any help and advice or just to hang out and chat with.
*** During New Year's and Queen's Day we have a 4 night minimum stay ***
