We stayed five nights and just loved the place. The room was adorable and we had our own bathroom. Everything was very clean and fresh. The bed was very comfortable and the linens were excellent. I am pretty picky about linens and I was happy. There were two chairs in the room with a foot stool (and a lamp for reading) which was nice at the end of the day. The room had a little kitchen which we only used to make tea but if you wanted to you could do a little bit of cooking. It was totally serviceable with a two burner stove top and a fridge. Breakfast was fantastic and worked around our crazy busy schedule. We used the B&B as a home base and used the P&R (Park and Ride) system to park outside the city and take the metro in. Our parking was only one euro a day and we paid the regular fare to ride the metro into and around Amsterdam. Just look up P&R Amsterdam on the internet and it explains the whole process and there are maps. We felt safe using the system. It dropped us off right at central station. We liked being out of the crazy busy city at night. The village is just adorable and well worth checking out.
