Reviewed 22 March 2009

Our two night, two day stay was quite enjoyable at the Sunhead. Centrally located, easy to find. Red Tulip room is on third floor with beautiful view of canal. Clean bath/shower, plush towels. Microwave, coffee/tea, refrigerator in room. Narrow spiral stairs a bit difficult with large suitcase. Delicious breakfast and friendly service.

We stayed in the Yellow Narcissus room - clean, comfortable and full of character. Carlos is charming and helpful. He opened up the red room for us to use as it was empty and it was nice to have the extra space. His breakfasts are very good - we had four breakfasts and he made a different hot egg dish for us each day. We had a really lovely stay.

We stayed at the Oude Waal apartment. It was clean, comfortable, peaceful and in a good location. We met Carlos at Sunhead on Herengracht to pick up the keys. He was helpful, providing a map and information about the locality. Overall this was a very good experience.

We stayed for 4 nights and had a great time. Carlos made us feel very welcome, a real home from home. Breakfast certainly lived up to all the fab reviews. We've been to Amsterdam many times and this has to be one of the best located places to stay. Lots of good restaurants close by and a great Dutch pub up the way. We're looking forward to going back.

Hello Carlos and Roelf-Jan,

Our two-day visit with you at Sunhead of 1617 was truly memorable. Our breakfasts, which included unique and tasty jams made of quince and lemoncello liqueur or rhubarb, nectarine and rose petals. It was delicious and delightful, served with homemade bread or rolls and fruit compote. The atmosphere, enhanced by Carlos’ hand-painted murals created a memorable breakfast filled with stimulating conversations and a sharing of cultures.

The memory of our Red Tulip Room and fascinating view from our window will remain as cherished images of our brief visit to Amsterdam. You will recall it preceded our 15-day river trip up the Rhine and Moselle Rivers to Basal, Switzerland.

Although our river tour was all we could have expected, our two days with the two of you – breakfasts and memorable conversations and boat ride, made our Amsterdam stay the pinnacle experience of our European vacation. What great hosts and good company!

I can't recommend the Sunhead highly enough. The red tulip room is delightfully quirky, with gorgeous views and the B&B is perfectly located for sightseeing. I still wake up dreaming about the breakfast - oh what a breakfast - the homemade jams, the soft-boiled eggs, the freshly squeezed orange juice...! Carlos could not have been more helpful or kind. The only thing that it is vital to keep in mind is that the stairs are incredibly steep, so don't bring heavy suitcases. I am so glad we stayed there, and we will definitely be returning the next time we come to Amsterdam. Thank you Carlos!
