“Highly recommended apartment stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2011

Stayed here 10 days in July at the first floor apartment on the Singel canal. First, the best location in Amsterdam, just a bit away from the crowded and noisey Dam Square and really close to the best Amsterdam neighborhood, the Jordan.
The canal view from the apartment was fantastic from 4 large windows and with them closed any noise from party canal boats was minimized. From the back bedroom there was absolute quiet.
The inn keepers were very helpfull and available for any and all questions.
I am a long time traveller to Adam and it was by far the best place I ever stayed at.
Note: Stayed in an apartment and not the B&B which I am sure matches the quality of the apartments.
Thank you, Ken and Vlad and the staff. Wayne and Gina

From our first correspondence on email with Vlad and Ken we felt very comfortable with our hosts. While we were at the B&B our hosts were helpful and friendly. The location was terrific. And what can I say about the breakfast.....warm croissants, fresh fruit, cheeses and much more. Our room was clean and cosy. We'll stay there again when we're back in Amsterdam. Two thumbs up!!

Ken and Vlad were great hosts. The house is located in the Jordaan neighborhood and was close to everything. I do have to say that we were a little disappointed in that we were expecting to stay in the Singel house and were told when we got there, that there was a change in plans. We stayed in the main house up a long flight of stairs. The bathroom was up a narrow stairway, so had to watch our heads. It was clean and comfortable, just a little inconvenient to climb the stairs to go up to the bathroom (there is a 1/2 bath with toilet and sink off the bedroom). The breakfasts were excellent and were more than enough fill us up as we started the day. All in all, it was a great place to stay while in Amsterdam.

Ken and Vlad are the best. I arrived alone exhausted after a long flight and being challenged in the area of following directions, couldn't seem to find my way. Ken went out onto the street looking for me and to my relief helped me the rest of the way. The location, the breakfast, the bed, everything is excellent. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in the SINGEL Street apartments. I can not say any more than this is the BEST place to stay in Amsterdam! Ken, Vlad and staff are fantastic hosts. The location is great, the rooms great, the lounge and kitchen outstanding! We just loved it there and if ever over in Amsterdam again we will certainly be staying there! Well done boys!

We stayed in the Singel house for 2 nights and it was a perfect location for our group of 6, as we were able to meet in the living room, and enjoy a glass of wine together. The renovation is so well done, and we loved our room - clean spacious with a large private bathroom. Breakfasts were delicious, with lots of fresh fruit, cheeses, fresh baking and good coffee. We will definitely stay with Ken and Vlad again - they do everything right!

We stayed in the top floor apartment for 3 nights. It is large, beautiful, clean, quiet enough, with modern appliances and a good bed. The problem was the strong smell of sewer in the stairwell. It came up into the room, especially if we opened the bathroom window. The other problem was I lost the key. The charge was 50 euros, which is a little steep for a replacement.
