“Fantastic location and great hospitality!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2013

Both my girlfriend and I had such a lovely time at Bees B&B. The room has floor heating, an excellent bathroom and everything seemed brand new! We were within 3 minutes walking distance to the very centre of Amsterdam and about 1 minute walk from the Anne Frank museum. Even though the managers of the B&B mentioned the stairs, we found it no problem at all. Perhaps if you had hip problems or used a walking stick you may find it a little bit of a challenge.

Both Brigitte and Hans, who managed the B&B, were really nice and helpful with the best things to see and do in and around Amsterdam. We wouldn't have had such a great time without their hospitality. The breakfast was really good as well and there was always more than you could eat.

We will definitely be back! Thank you Bees B&B!

My boyfriend and I spent a great time in B&B. The location is excellent, we were exactly in the middle of everything, and we could see all the city by foot. Brigitte and Hans were very nice people as well and they gave us the greatest tips of where to eat and where to go out at night, they were really helpfull and kind with us. The breakfast is the best you can have, a real five stars. The room is really comfortable and there is no noise at night. When we arrived, the studio was full of flowers. Hans gave us a dutch card wich we had discount for all the atractions and some restaurants. Brigitte bought a bunch of delicious products made in a farm, everything was delicious. In the end they booked a taxi for us to the airport. We are hoping to come back as soon as possible to Amsterdam, and for sure we are going to B&Bs.

My fiancee and I booked the B&B for 4 nights in December, and our stay was very enjoyable overall. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the couple who owned the place - Hans and Bridget. They welcomed us with some coffee, and gave a very helpful overview of the city, providing maps and even discount cards. The building is located in the heart of Amsterdam, along the gorgeous Leliegracht canal. The suite itself was impeccably clean, and we were particularly impressed by the fully stocked kitchenette (including delicious must-have Dutch cheese). The only problem that may occur when actually getting up to the suite with luggage is that the stairs are incredibly steep and narrow - not an easy task.

The 'breakfast' part of the stay was absolutely incredible, and far exceeded our expectations. Hans baked fresh croissants for us every morning, put together a fruit plate, squeezed fresh orange juice, and cooked eggs. Everything was delivered to our door at our convenience (we requested 9 a.m), and anything we could want in addition to the breakfast, we found in our mini fridge. The food alone is well worth every penny spent on this B&B. We will definitely stay at Bees B&B on our next trip to Amsterdam!

What can I say that the other reviews have not? This place is perfect for couples looking for a nice place to stay whilst also being near the hustle and bustle that is Amsterdam. Just a 2min walk from Dam Square, you have everything at your reach and at walking distance. This was my third visit to Amsterdam and would not really class this as a hostel (as it is too nice to be a hostel). The room is cosy and warm and our fridge was stocked up, even fresh Ditch cheese and ham which was yummy! The hosts Hans and Brigitte were perfect from the moment I made the booking, they helped me book something for New Years and also arranged a birthday cake for my husband as it was his birthday! When we got there we were explained everything by Hans, given maps, discount cards. Just seriously, you dont need to book elsewhere! Cant wait to come again! Oh and the breakfast of fresh rolls, croissants, juice and fruit! Mmmmmmmm

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Bee's in December. I agree with all the other reviewers. This place is a gem. A large studio in a canal house complete with little kichen area and great bathroom. Unfortunately, we did not get to meet Brigitte and Hans as they were out of town. However, their lovely neighbor took very good care of us.The weather was snowy and cold, but the warmth of Bee's was so welcoming. I would love to return. Great value for the money.

My husband and I visited Amsterdam for 3 nights on our belated honeymoon trip to Amsterdam, Prague and Budapest during summer 2011. I have been meaning to write a review since then but haven't gotten around to it. However, this place was so amazing I figured I should still write a review even though it's a year and a half later! I am not sure what I can add to the reviews on the site except to reinforce what others have said - this is an incredible place to stay for a couple. We arrived early in the morning and tired and Hans and Brigitte were very welcoming and let us into the apartment early without a problem. Hans gave us a number of tips for sightseeing and was very friendly. The small kitchen was well stocked and a fresh and delicious breakfast was provided every morning. Hans and Brigitte had the ability to be there when we needed them but not interfere in anyway. They really helped us out one night - we'd walked past the Anne Frank house and seen the queue and decided we'd be better off getting tickets online (there was literally NO line for pre-purchased ticket holders). However, we didn't have a printer, so we left them a note asking if they'd be able to print out the tickets if we purchased them. We then went out for the evening and came home to a note saying that they had actually bought the tickets for us as they'd checked online and found that there were hardly any left - they hadn't wanted to risk us missing out. We paid them back and were so appreciative - they really went above and beyond.
In terms of location, this is the ideal place to explore the city but still feel like you have a quiet place to go back to at the end of the evening - we really felt for our stay like we actually lived in Amsterdam. Beautiful apartment, fantastic location - I would never want to stay anywhere else.
