We stayed 2 nights at the Crown B&B. The location was fantastic - only a few minutes walk from Centraal Station and surprisingly close to all of the sights. Angelo, who was more like an old (or new!) friend, was a fantastic host - showing us how to get to all of the places we wanted to go and advising us where to eat and drink along the way. He was there 1st thing in the morning to see how our day had gone and what our plans were for that day, offering suggestions and route advice. Breakfast was a help-yourself affair with everything you could possibly want available on covered plates in the huge fridge. We were also invited to help ourselves through the day/night to a selection of fruit juice, iced water and Nespresso (yum) coffee. The room was absolutely gorgeous, biggest bed, bedroom and bathroom I think I've ever stayed in when on holiday! The decor was very bohemian (loved it) and the bathroom was wall to wall (& floor) marble with a huge spa bath and separate shower area. The room was very warm but Angelo had already put a big fan in the room which we just left on all day and night; he's apparently getting air-con put into the rooms soon which will def make a positive difference for some but I didn't mind being warm as it added to the homely feel and we just slept on top of the covers! For all of these reasons (inc twisty Amsterdam stairs) I would def go back as I prefer to feel that I am experiencing the city I am visiting instead of staying in a cold, impersonal, sterile, corporate designed hotel. Well done Angelo - we loved our stay and thank you for being a fabulous host!
The traditional Amsterdam staircase (open, wooden, twisty) is not for everyone, so if you're scared of heights or have any mobility issues you will struggle. For me - it just added to the charm.
