“A spacious & comfortable stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

Wonderfully close to the historic centre without being in the very heart. An easy walk or tram ride to everything. Yes the breakfasts are lovely! Thanks Aziz. The stairway is steep & narrow but only one flight & Peter offered to helped with my suitcase. The park nearby is well used by locals and a great insight to life in Amsterdam. Our stay was too brief at Studio 259...would have loved to stay longer.

Room Tip: Safari room is very spacious with double glazing but being at the front of the apartment has maybe m...

Aziz and Peter are wonderful hosts.
We stayed in the Grand Sahara for 3 nights and had a great time.
The location is perfect with easy access to public transportation.
The suite is clean, spacious and nicely decorated. The small patio is very cute. Breakfasts were delicious.

Thanks Trip Advisor for leading us to this fantastic B&B. The hosts are friendly and very hospitable, unobtrusive but on hand to offer advise and help with sightseeing plans. The apartments are well appointed, clean and spacious. We welcomed the little added complimentry extras in the rooms. The breakfasts each morning were plentiful and delicious. Conveniently located with tram at front door, bike and car hire close by,a variety of eateries and shopping within a short stroll, oh, and Vondell Park at the back door, the location will not disappoint. Only drawback is steep stairs up to the apartment, but this is common for Amsterdam. Dont overpack your luggage making your bags too heavy or bulky and it will not be a problem, although Peter will gladly assist. Do yourself a favour and seriously consider staying at Suite 259. It will not disappoint!

We found this on TripAdvisor (as we find all our hotels, etc.) and were not disappointed. Peter is hilarious and his anti-American sarcasm is distinctly European. Aziz's breakfasts were lavish, exotic, almost formal affairs with too much food, but our family loved it. The Grand Sahara Suite was two levels and perfect for our family so we each had our own "areas." A few things to be mindful of (none of them dealbreakers): the place itself isn't the most convenient location to the "heart" of Amsterdam, although we could walk to the Museumplein. The stairs both up to the room and to the second level inside the room are very narrow and steep, so don't overpack. A few good restaurants within walking distance, as well as a grocery store.

Our family of four returned for a three night stay at Suite 259, one year after our first visit. We stayed in the Grand Sahara Suite. As was true with our first visit, everything was completely to our liking. Peter and Aziz welcomed us warmly and took care to make sure we were well cared for. The suite is lovely. It is spaceous, very clean, and comfortable. Aziz provided a delicious breakfast each day including our favorite poffertjes (and even provided a "ready to go" breakfast on the morning we left early for the airport). We enjoyed a special dinner on our last evening from "Rice Is Nice" the take out dinner service of Aziz. It was delicious and a wonderful way to end our vacation. Peter took care to make sure our sightseeing was planned to perfection. His tips for transportaion and timing were welcomed. Peter also printed out boarding passes and called a cab making our departure easy. Suite 259 is located in a lovely part of Amsterdam...a bit away from the busy tourist areas but easily accessable. We enjoyed both stays at Suite 259. We would recommend it to anyone visiting Amsterdam... and would happily return ourselves!

Room Tip: The Grand Sahara was perfect for our family of 4. It was spacious offering two full bathrooms and s...

Peter was actually on the street to meet us when the cab dropped us off. From there he and Aziz showed us such warm hospitality. Peter called us a cab several days later for our departure and got up with us at a ridiculously early hour to help us carry our luggage. Breakfast with Aziz was terrific - his internationally known pancakes were a big hit with the kids. The B & B also offers a Malaysian-type dinner that Aziz prepares and we had that on our last night - very delicious and reasonably priced. We rented both the suites available for 5 of us. Nice touches like cold beverages in the fridge in each room and fruit and a welcome bottle of wine. The rooms were perfect for us. The air conditioning was great at night. Nice bathroom facilities. All in all, all the luxuries of a really nice hotel but more space, more individual attention at cheaper price!

This looks exactly as in the photos. I was very impressed with the welcome and the room. We were in the Safari suite next to Grand Sahara. There was plenty of space, great furniture, comfortable bed. The breakfast is amazing: fruit salad, freshly squeezed orange juice, pancakes and a different homemade Indonesian dish every day. Beautiful flowers: orchids and lilies in the jacuzzi-bathroom and breakfast area. Start your day with a short walk through Vondel Park to the city centre.
