Good location, just a 10 minute walk to Dam square, 5+ minutes to the Anne Frank house. We took the tram one stop from the central station and lugged our bags to the B&B, whose directions we a little confusing.. It really wasn't that far so we did the same on the way back to the airport. This is an old canal house, that is narrow, & there are very steep stairs. If you have difficulty with stairs, this is not for you. Vlad (owner) & the other person there were very helpful, friendly and carried all our bags up for us. We had a very large room, really two rooms. A very large living room with 2 sofas and several chairs, a smaller bedroom and a very modern bathroom in between the rooms. The bathroom had both a shower and a tub.
It was hot in Amsterdam. Much warmer than expected during our stay and there isn't any air conditioning in the B&B, which we knew. We had windows in both the bedroom and living room and two small fans but it never really cooled off, so be aware if your booking during warm weather.
Breakfast wasn’t served until 9am so, you’re if you need an early start, you are able to grab something from the kitchen on your own. It was a nice selection of breakfast breads, cheese, meat, fruit salad, yogurt & after 9:00am someone was there to make coffee and tea
