“Don't stay here if you want a lie in!”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

This is the second time I've been to b&nb herengracht, it has a great location and is a nice apartment.

The first time we were there in 2013 we were woken each morning by building work going on before 9am, but we put this down to being a one off and booked to come back in 2014.

I didn't think it possible but the same thing happened again! We are not light sleepers, to put this in to perspective we live in a highly populated apartment block in London near a railway station. Not sure if January is when the shop upstairs does its renovations or re-stock but we were not warned, and yet again we had no lie ins after 9am.

I complained to the hotel management when I got home to be told that the shop had denied any works or noise was going on, and they couldn't explain it. Not very nice to essentially be told I'm "hearing things" or I'm making it up, especially when my boyfriend heard it too.

I won't be coming back here because of the way they've handled this situation. Great place as long as nothing goes wrong I guess! Too expensive per night to put up with poor customer service though.

We stayed here for 2 nights in January, it is easy to find and has a good location. The bedroom is very comfortable and nicely decorated. There is a tv, iPod Dock, DVDs for entertainment and a mini bar/tea coffee making facilities. The bathroom is very clean with soft towels. There are complimentary shampoo/shower gel etc aswell if needed. It's a fantastic little room to stay in with everything you need for a few nights!

Quite the concept- bed without breakfast. The location of this residence was great- so close to wonderful restaurants and trams that could take us wherever we wanted to go. The only downside is there is no daylight since it's below streetlevel.

There was a helpful book with listings of places to see and restaurants to dine, so we didn't necessarily miss the people aspect of a traditional B&B. The music system is also worth noting- amazing sound and fantastic addition to our home for the weekend.

Aside from the price, I'd recommend this to any friends traveling to Amsterdam.

We went for a couple of nights for my partner's birthday and this place was perfect for us, i like the fact it is like a very stylish apartment rather than a hotel room. You can come and go as you please, and it's within walking distance of Dam Square, Rembrandplein, and even Leidseplein is only 20 mins walk away. The canal is quiet though and you aren't disrupted by noisy tourists or trams.

The underfloor heating was a welcome addition as it was winter, something that 99% of place in Amsterdam do not have.

We were woken up by building work early on Saturday morning, but the b&nb dealt with this impeccably and I can't fault their customer service. I have to thank them for this.

I would definitely stay here again, I just hope they don't put the price up because of all the good reviews. Currently it is good value for money. I wish we'd booked another couple of nights!

The place is located on the beautiful canal on the basement floor. Therefore you will have this feeling of "living in underground". It wasn't a problem at all, but you should take it into account if wide sunny windows and the view on the canal - is what you are looking for. Not in this place. At the same time the b&b itself consisting form the only room is very cozy, with heated floors, iPod doc station, good sound system, beautiful old wooden celling, large and well equiped bathroom. The bottle of wine as well as drinks in minibar (water, beer, and even some snacks) were waiting at this b&b for free which is very nice. You will find a collection of books (mostly on design and architecture) as well as DVDs in the room. You don't need to use any public transport while staying there: 15 minutes walk from the main railway station and in a walking distance from most of main attractions. You can leave your luggage right upstairs in the office of friendly architect. Ask b&b management for details or find information yourself in info pack in the room. What I personally liked very much at this place is a corellation between price and value. Will come back again if travel to Amsterdam.

We stayed in Amsterdam as a stopover on our way to Italy and we wanted a central location so we could see as much as possible during our short stay! When we arrived we couldnt believe how fantastic the room was. The bed was huge and really comfy...massive television and cool surround sound speakers. Fancy coffee machine with a selection of coffees and a really beautiful massive bathroom. The complimentary wine and water was a nice touch and the information that was left was perfect for us having never been to Amsterdam before. We wished we could have stayed longer and we will definately be returning! It was easy to get to from the airport...train from airport to Amsterdam central, then we got a tram to Dam square and then it was just a short walk
