Reviewed 29 November 2013

We stayed in the bed and breakfast for 3 nights in October and we really loved it. The room and en suite were spacious and very clean. The bed was really comfortable!
The apartment is in a quiet residential area but is right on the metro line so it's very easy to get into the city. The owner, Willemien, was very friendly and she made some recommendations for restaurants close by- we tried out the tapas restaurant which was really great.
I recommend this as a good, comfortable and affordable option to explore Amsterdam.

We stayed at the bed and breakfast for three nights.
Willemien was helpful and kind.
The room was clean and nicely furnished, with lots of light, overlooking quiet gardens. There was a ceiling fan as well, which was useful given the summer temperatures.
There was no breakfast available, but in the room we had a boiler we could use, and a tea selection. Also, the supermarket was at a two minute walk from the bed and breakfast.
It is in a very good position, a five minute walk from the Amstel and very close to the De Pijp district. It also allows easy access to trams and buses, and a ten minute voyage to all areas of the town (in the period we were staying, the underground stations were closed).
We had a very pleasant stay, and hope to repeat it again in the future!!
Just beware of the very steep steps at the entrance, they are tricky if you are carrying very heavy luggage.

It is a wonderful place to stay if you want to be on your own. Willemien was very kind and helpful. We had a wonderful time and recommend this place if you want to stay in a quite area in Amsterdam. The place is very near the metro and a small shopping place for your milk and bread.

We stayed in the bed&kitchen room for 4 nights, the room was quiet and noiseless and the location was in a residential quarter but very close to the metro stop. In the bathroom there was several towels and shower products so we didn't need to bring them from home. Nice and friendly, good price for the location and the provided services.

Warm and comfortable with coffee and tea maker. Very quiet to the rear of the house overlooking the garden. As in typicaly dutch houses, steep stairs to the room. Willemina checked that everything was OK. It is 4 subway stations from Centraal but very close to the Amstel River and it is a nice walk to the Hermitage. Crockery was a rather odd assortment in a very large cupboard and the kettle was on the floor. This could all be easily resolved. However a nice stay and I would recommend it.

Room Tip: We chose the ensuite room and it was large and comfortable. Pull the bell when you arrive as the f...

The location is nice. Information about the city Amsterdam was pourly. The beds were good. The pratice of the owner is also in the house. This makes to much noise in the house. People going in and out. The neighbor has also a bed and breakfast. You can feel the tension between this two.
Sorry about this review, but we only wanted some peaceful time.

Room Tip: Ask the owner if there also an other business in the house.

We stayed in Bed&Kitchen for 10 nights and it was a great experience. The studio is cozy, fully equipped and very clean. It is located on the last floor, so it's a bit hot when the weather is sunny, the stairway is very steep and it's not easy to carry the bags upstairs but it's absolutely dutch style. The staff was very kind and always helpful to any request. The location is also very good: it's only 3 minutes walk to metro station and 5 minutes to tram stop, the surroundings are quiet and there is a furnished supermarket nearby. However we can recommend it as a perfect starting point for visiting the city. Surely we would stay here again!
