I came to Amsterdam on business trip, but not very busy one so I decided to experiment a bit and stay in the hotel that is not quite usual. It shod not be a regular 5 star hotel, but it should not be a usual bed and breakfast one. So after a small research I came up with this hotel. And believe me if there is paradise somewhere in the world in the hotels - this is the place. The coupe who own the place Guido and Camilla made me feel at home ( better than at home) from the first moment. Very hospitable and nice not because they were trained to be so but this is their nature. They mean it. Always ready to jump to help you whatever you need. There is only small problem with this. You do not want to leave this cosy pace. Just seat in their beautiful dining room and chat with them about anything you want and they are happy to be your company. Today in the morning with an Australian couple we spent a few hours with Guido and Camilla having wonderful home made breakfast and chatting and chatting and chatting.
There are only two beautiful rooms for guests in the house.
With their background, Camilla was an actress and Guido - a film director they invested their hearts in house. Beautiful Murano chandelier in my room is something very special. I can go on and on and on but that is enough. (Please see photos on Booking.com). You should come on see it for yourself. I have decided to bring my wife to this place ASAP as I am looking forward to sharing this amazing experience with here.
It is a very busy place so one has to book well in advance( I was lucky as someone cancelled the trip the last minute). So if I could not get my room here for very long I will also blame this review. But the problem is that I could not resist the temptation to share my experience with you, dear readers of Trip Advisor.
It is not fare if I try it and some of you don't due to lack of information about this place.
It is true that it is not centrally located and one has to travel by tram for 15 minutes or by car for 10 to get to the center. But this is nothing compared with what you are getting instead. You should also think of having lunch and dinner somewhere else as the hotel does not have a restaurant that it normally providing this service but you can imagine that there are a couple of thousand of good restaurants in the city. By the way if one wants to eat at the hotel he should ask the owners and a very god chef Aart will make a fantastic dinner to your taste at hone.
If you are newly married or want to impress someone very special this is the best place you can go to.
This hotel is a very good value for money. Small but important nuances. One is getting wine, bear, strong drinks, water, WiFi and a few more things (it is simply difficult to remember) for free.
