My husband and I booked to stay here after reading all the glowing reviews in Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. We stayed for 4 nights in July and wished we stayed longer.
On arrival, Peter greeted us at the door and showed us around the beautiful house. He even offered to do our laundry for free and there were chocolate chip cookies waiting for us. After a 13 hour flight from Malaysia and 3 hour train ride (from Paris) it was a welcome relief and felt like coming home to a dear friend! As our time in Amsterdam was short, he provided us with ideas on where to go and what to see including day trips with some of the popular tour companies. Peter also provided us with a map of the city.
Best room in the house is definitely the BOXER ROOM which we stayed. It was on the first floor, meaning we did not have to climb another flight of stairs. There was a fully equipped and well stocked kitchen with everything provided. There are 2 rooms on this first floor sharing this kitchen and living area so it felt more like a spacious 2 bedroom apartment. The living area was tastefully and beautifully decorated with a library of travel guidebooks. The ambience of the room was second to none and Peter even provided us with free internet via a netbook. Peter even offered to help print our Van Gogh Museum tickets as we bought them online to avoid the queues!
During our stay, the other room was vacant so we felt like we had the whole floor to ourselves! The room itself was clean and spacious and although the windows did not have a view, as it was extremely close to the other building, it was still bright and airy and very private. The TV was full of English channels so we had plenty to watch.
Breakfast was fantastic and extremely generous - Peter is an excellent cook. While Peter was away, Wilma did an excellent job of continuing the great service. The doggies Curly and Pepe added to the warm atmosphere of the house. We loved this place so much that we will definitely stay here again if we visit Amsterdam. Peter & his team have set the standard of what a B&B should be like. Thanks for leaving us with fond memories of Amsterdam.
