This house is delightful...and the owners of the property 'Oki & Frank' are the nicest hosts you could wish for. Although this is a B&B, it really feels like you've dropped in on old friends who have opened up their house for you. The house is situated in a quiet leafy residential area, the street and surrounding areas are lined with bicycles in typical Dutch fashion, very picturesque and charming. The room which we stayed in was decorated to a very high standard, very airy and light and tastefully decorated. One of my two favourite features was the beautiful french doors which opened onto a balcony, although the balcony overlooks the back of some other residential properties and their gardens, it was very quiet and private - I found it to be an added bonus as you get the experience of what it feels like to live in Amsterdam. Another feature which I loved, was the 'Coco-Mat' bed...a very luxurious feature for a B&B! The attention to detail in every respect is really exceptional, from the friendly welcome to the chocolates placed on our pillows when we returned after an evening out. I can't really fault anything, and I am a bit fussy! We will definatley return to stay here again in the future.
