Sunhead of 1617
Ranked #40 of 337 Amsterdam B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 November 2013

We have just come back from 4 nights at the Sunhead and loved it. We visit Amsterdam every year and always stay somewhere different, but I think we may have found our 'go-to' accommodation. The room was gorgeous, full of character, very comfortable with lovely finishing touches. The location is brilliant and within walking distance of everything you need/want/love! I have to say though the thing that really sets this B&B apart is Carlos and his amazing breakasts and company. It was by far the best start to the morning we've had in Amsterdam, gorgeous food, fantastic company and lots of laughter also. We'll definitely be going back and would highly recommend this B&B to anyone wanting something more personal with a very tasty and stylish atmosphere.

Spent 4 nights here in September 2013. Perfect location for exploring the sites and getting a real feel for the city. Beautiful accommodations and setting not to mention the great breakfasts accompanied by a superb chef and conversationalists. Very close to some nearby restaurants for local cuisine, reasonable and tasty, Bi jons and the Pancake Bakery, a must on your to do list, to avoid some higher end eateries. Would definitely return to Sunhead on a future trip to Amsterdam!

perfect location, splendid bedroom and wonderful breakfast. But the best is the kindliness of Carlos and Jan. You start the day with happiness after such a breakfast : all is fresh, prepared and cooked in front of you. It was really a great pleasure and has contributed to the success of our stay in Amsterdam.

We had a wonderful time in Amsterdam and staying at Sunhead made our three days there even more enjoyable than we had hoped. Sunhead is inviting from the front steps to the top floor. Carlos and Jan are perfect hosts. The breakfast drinks prepared by Jan started our days with a zing. Carlos is the cook and what a cook he is. Each morning, he delighted us with a new taste treat and lively conversation. Our room was at the top of the stairs. They are steep but led to our own cozy little hideaway. Sunhead's location is near the Anne Frank House and canal boats. We hope to return to Amsterdam and we will surely stay at Sunhead.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the fabulous Sunhead B&B and what a delight it was. Carlos and Roelf are brilliant hosts and the breakfasts are as good as all the reviews have mentioned. It feels like you are welcomed guests and not paying customers.

The location is perfect. Everything is in walking distance and it is so peaceful overlooking the Heregracht.

Our room (the Tulip at the top of the house, yes the stairs are narrow but the townhouses are built that way) was beautifully appointed. It had all you need: comfy bed, immaculately clean bathroom and even a coffee machine; there is nothing more you would need.

All I can say is that you'd be mad to stay anywhere else.

Had a great stay in SunHead! As reviews state, the hosts are fantastic, as are the breakfasts. Room and bathroom was spotless. From the outside this building is the nicest on the whole street, and is in a great location. If I ever go back to Ansterdam, this is where I will be staying.
