If you are weary of subpar service at many European hotels, please come stay here and enjoy 6-star service with Camilla and Guido. The rooms have the character of a palace. You will feel as if you have been transported to another age when you sit down and have breakfast. I will not provide details of the experience as it would detract from your own personal experience. Needless to say, you will never forget it.

There is a warm opulence that surrounds your entire experience at the Breitner House. Come and stay if you want an unforgettable experience.

We stayed 3 wonderful nights in Breitner House.and were given the "royal" treatment by our hosts. Our review scale is a , 10/10,or even higher if it was possible. From the moment we arrived our hosts showed friendship and consideration of our needs. We were given excellant advice and directions each day for our destinations, even though it took us days to find the wonderful chinese restaurant... The breakfast each day was sumptuous and heallthy, with a varied choice of foods. We would have loved to stay longer and even return one day. So thankyou to Camilla and Guido for our lovely room with so much ambience, interesting conversations and wonderful food.We have left Amsterdam with a sense of dutch hospitality.. We will recommend this stay to anyone travelling to Amsterdam Moya and Charles P.

We stayed at Breitner House in April this year. This is one place that actually surpasses all the superlatives that have been written. I cannot imagine two people better suited to run a B&B - charming, elegant Camille and the perfect host, Guido. Rooms are spectacular, the breakfasts amazing and the generosity of the hosts beyond what you could find anywhere. I would detour via Amsterdam just to experience this wonderful B&B once more.
On the practical side, Breitner House is located close to public transport although not too far to walk to the centre of Amsterdam which we did on several occasions. The park across the road is lovely for an early morning walk with the locals.

Room Tip: We chose the garden room thinking it would be quieter but the whole house is very quiet with no traf...

As with all the other reviews of Breitner House, there are only positive and wonderful things to say about our experience. But words do not, and cannot, do this place justice. It's simply indescribably fabulous in every possible way. Our room was the most beautiful room I've ever stayed in, complete with the most luxurious bed and bathroom I've ever seen. The dining room is so wonderfully lavishly decorated, that it's hard to imagine it gets better, until breakfast is served, and then forget what you thought you knew about a typical bed & breakfast. We saw photos of the breakfast which looked quite lavish, but it was the best, most indulgent, prosecco-filled breakfast I've had. And all of this isn't even the best part about our stay at Breitner House. Undeniably, Camilla and Guido were the most gracious, lovely hosts, who went above and beyond to make our visit there not just a visit, but a remarkable experience. It's very evident that they take an enormous amount of pride in the house, and making each and every stay a beautiful one. Just think about anything and everything you could possibly want while on vacation, and Guido and Camilla will have already thought about it. They are the most charming couple and we cannot wait to come back and stay with them again. 100% percent we will be back every time we stay in Amsterdam. If you choose to stay at Breitner House, you will not be disappointed. But don't treat this as simply a hotel stay...fully embrace the house, the hosts and you will have an unforgettable time at this absolutely perfect little place. Oh, and make sure your outgoing flight is late enough that you can fully enjoy an entire morning and afternoon...

Room Tip: We saw the other room, and by far I think the Breitner Suite is the most beautiful.

If you a are looking for a beautifully furnished home with super friendly people this is for you. The breakfast is spectacular as noted by others, but the real plusses are Camille and her charming husband Guido. They bend over backwards to ensure your comfort; and go way out of their way to show you the profound Amsterdam, not the typical touristy places. A very pleasant stay that keeps Amsterdam one of my favorite cities to visit (food, museums, walkability, people, etc.).

Breitner House excels in every way. The owners have thrown away the conventional rule book and re-invented their own style for accommodating and looking after guests which we just loved and found quite refreshing. If you are looking for a luxurious, elegant break that offers something quite unique and different compared to other 5 star establishments. A stay at Breitner House is simply an ‘experience’ that should not be missed. It’s quite an eccentric house with lots of personality and history made lovely and charming by the beautiful owners Camilla and Guido who made us feel extremely welcome from the minute we arrived to the minute we left. Our suite was the most luxurious room we’ve had the pleasure to stay in, topping our stay at the Ritz in Madrid. We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at Breitner House and the experience was magical. The champagne breakfast was delicious, exquisite and luxurious, all homemade. Our room had complementary fresh flowers throughout, drinks, wine, chocolates, snacks and toiletries. A stay at the Brietner House is simply an amazing experience. Thanks Camilla & Guido, we hope to see you again soon xx

Room Tip: Both suites are beautiful and unique

words are supposed to explain feelings but in this case, it is just impossible to translate in words what you will be discovering and feeling at the Breitner House. Guido and Camilla are welcoming you with so much passion that you immediately feel at home. The suites are more than superb but beside the beauty, the atmosphere is so great that you even don't want to visit Amsterdam.
Don't even think of hesitating to go and discover the Breitner House !
