“Amazing B&B in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

Picking accommodation on internet seems always risky, but I found a great choice with the Barangay. Their locations is really a short walking distance from the station. Run by Wimmo and Godwin I can understand why they have a lot of regular guests. Wimmo is a mind of useful info on where to go and what to see in Amsterdam. A clean and home away from home residence with authentic warm people including welcome drinks. Nice ( tropical ) design of the room will bring you special feeling in Amsterdam indeed. Surely, I won't stay anywhere else and would highly recommend to all visitors of this Amazing city.

This is by far the best B&B I've stayed. The location is second to none, just two blocks from Amsterdam Central Station (very convenient), and very close to the City Center, but it is still in a quiet neighborhood. The hosts are very very friendly and helpful. They offer you a welcome drink, give you a map and explain to you about the city and the best places to go. The room is very comfortable, clean and new. We had one with in suite toilet, on the top floor (a tropical suite I guess he called it). Decoration is beautiful, specially the kitchen, where you have your breakfast (you make it yourself, which makes you feel kinda at home). On the downside, only to mention the stairs which are very steep, but they help you with your luggage to carry it upstairs. But every house in Centrum Amsterdam has that kind of steps.
I will definitely stay here if I go back to Amsterdam!

We stayed at Barangay for 3 nights in June last year (2012). We arrived at the b&b after a super early flight with a friend and were anxious about leaving her outside while we checked in. No need for any worry, she was invited in along with us and made to feel immediately welcome. We all had a welcome drink (very much needed at this point) and a chat where our hosts seemed to pick up on our personalities straight away and were able to pinpoint areas that we would like and point of interest.

We were shown to our room which was up some typical steep Amsterdam stairs (as noted on the website) and were blown away by the size of it - I think it was the Upper Masters Tropical Room. A huge luxurious comfortable bed, loads of character, extra seating ... and a pristinely clean shower room and toilet right outside our door. We immediately felt at home.

The kitchen was just across from our room, where you could help yourself to loads of different types of food for breakfast, and has an impressive coffee machine. It was quite lovely to sit there every morning and decide what to eat - pastries, eggs, cold meats, cheese, cereal, toast, fruit etc. So much to choose from .. and with the added bonus of being able to chat to other guests at breakfast.

In terms of location it is perfect - on a quiet street yet only 10 mins walk from the train station (max). We like walking so it was perfect that we could walk to most of the attractions. The b&b is situated in the Jordaan area which is near to the canals, to bars, to a lovely park ... so much is on your doorstep so its great for exploring.

We will definitely be going back!

Wimmo & Godwin were perfect hosts - they helped us with our plans and provide excellent accommodation

We chose Barangay on the basis of the reviews on this site and were very glad that we had done so. It is conveniently close to Centraal Station and the city centre. The hosts are clearly characters; very welcoming and very helpful. We had the tropical red room, one of the few with en suite facilities. We were in Amsterdam during a heatwave and the room was hot, but in our view that's still better (with its fan) than air-conditioning. The self-service breakfast offered plenty of scope and suited us. The free wifi was of a much higher standard than at many hotels. We patronised all three restaurants recommended to us, each of which was excellent. We would certainly go back, but potential guests do need to read the very fair warning on the website about the steepness of the stairs.

We enjoyed a 3 night stay in this B&B prior to our bike/barge vacation. Clean rooms, comfortable beds. Very convenient location. The owners are very helpful and accomodating. Very nice (make it yourself) breakfast options including cereals, breads, croissants, eggs, meats, cheeses, yogurt, more. We liked being able to have breakfast on our schedule.

We stayed about a week, before and after an Amsterdam River Cruise. We found our hosts anxious to make our stay at the B&B and the overall Amsterdam experience first-class. Wimmo and Goodwin were charming and helpful with personalized tips and help with travel. Their choice of a taxi for our departure was perfect - efficient and not expensive. Do ask for and take their advice. This is not a fancy accommodation. The decorations are 'eclectic/bizarre' and our travel companions had some trouble with the not so soft mattress in the basement.

Yet it was a good value and close to the Main Station.

I would happily return.

Room Tip: Higher rooms are up typical narrow winding stairs. Difficult to negotiate heavy/bulky luggage.

Godwin, one of the owners, did a great job in settling us in and calming us down, following a traumatic experience on the train from the airport when my wife's purse was stolen. After a very helpful briefing we were taken to our ground floor mini-suite which was most comfortable, overlooked a tiny illuminated garden and had a spacious ensuite shower room. Barangay is very convenient being located only 5 minutes on foot from Amsterdam Central Station, and even being light sleepers, we didn't notice any noise from the adjacent street! Room decor is fun and the delicately folded towels make a good display. The breakfast, taken in the shared kitchen, provided us with an excellent choice of food and drinks to start off the day. The free Wi-Fi had a fast signal and overall we enjoyed our stay and the hospitality received.
