My g/f and I stayed here for two nights last week on our way back to the US from the Balkans.
The B&B is located in a quiet neighborhood just blocks away from the "Nine Streets" area. Getting to/from Schiphol Airport was easy via the 197 bus, which costs 5 Euros and takes 30 minutes.
We stayed in the room at the back, which has a nice terrace and wonderful view of the garden. The room was spacious, yet cozy. The bed was very comfortable.
Oki and Frank were excellent hosts, and they went out of their way to make our stay pleasant.
Our holiday began with a wedding in Zwolle, which is about 90 minutes east of Amsterdam. After the wedding festivities we returned to Amsterdam for our flight to the Balkans. Oki and Frank allowed us to leave with them our wedding clothes, which freed us of the burden of having to carry them for the rest of our trip. We simply picked them up when we stopped in Amsterdam for two days on our way home to the US.
Each night when we returned to the room there were chocolates waiting for us on our pillows.
And for the coffee drinkers, there is a Nespresso machine in the rooms, with a fine selection of coffees, which are replenished each day.
For the environmentally conscious, Okie and Frank run the B&B in an environment-friendly way.
And just when you thought it could not get any better, every guest gets to take home a stylish pair of Coco-Mat slippers.
Book a room here. You will not regret it.
