Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The place is highly recommended from our side.

    Tamara and her husband Shanti are very kind and welcoming people. They helped us with every little thing, starting from adjusting the check-in time to helping us with our bicycle ride to North sea. They made us feel at home and with family.

    Secondly, the place is only 5 minutes walking from the Alkmaar train station and 10 min from the city center. One amazing thing that I experienced was that while in bed, one could hear sweet chimes of the large clock atop Lourens church in city center.

    Thanks Tamara for your generous hospitality.

  • We had a wonderful time in Alkmaar. Tamara was an excellent host and we enjoyed spending time chatting with her and her husband. Our room and the house were nice, and clean. Tamara was really helpfull and found us a baby seat for the bike. Sadly it was too rainy to go in the end. We felt very welcomed, and it's a great place for staying with a little kid. We definitely would like to come again one day!

  • Tamara is great joyful person who welcomed us and showed us her pretty little house. Unfortunately we didn't have any time to chat with her or to stay there longer, but I can only recommend her :) And I finally got to see what those typical little houses look like on the inside - very interesting! Next time we are around we will definitely stay at Tamara's place.

  • Great room in great location in Alkmaar. Tamara was very helpful and friendly. I rented the room for few days while looking for more permanent location in Alkmaar. The location was so good I ended up making a long term contract with Tamara.

  • Un séjour vraiment très sympathique ! Les hôtes les plus accueillants que nous ayons eu, et c'est vraiment très bien situé ! A 5 min du centre ville et à deux pas de la gare, on ne peut trouver mieux. Merci encore !

  • Tamara y su marido nos atendieron genial!!. un sitio muy tranquilo, al lado de la estación de tren , en un pueblo precioso que nos encantò!. Estuvimos 6 días en su casa, y todo genial, incluso ella misma alquila bicis. La casa es preciosa, muy holandesa, con sus escaleras estrechas y super acogedora. ¡¡¡UN BESO ENORME TAMARA, GRACIAS!!!!!.

  • Me and one of my friend stayed at Tamara's house during summers. Tamara and her husband Shanti are very friendly, helpful, and interesting peolpe. The room was very clean, beautifully decorated and comfortable with the location being very near to the train station, easily approachable. You can rent bikes for 5€ the day by Tamara every time. One of the most famous beach is only 30 minutes from the house with very nice and beautiful scenery along the way.

    The Alkmaar itself is very beautiful, has very nice gardens and lakes which gives you a proper feeling of countryside Holland, as well as you can easily go to Amsterdam from there as it is very nearby to the Central Train Station. The house itself has a good garden and breakfast provided by her was also very nice.

    One of the most important things is that Tamara and her husband are great hosts and welcomed us with their hearts open. They helped us in every way possible whether it was suggestions of where to go around, lending us bicycles at a very short notice and even provided us with coffee and breakfast.

    If I ever visit Amsterdam or Alkmaar again, would definitely like to stay at Tamara's house and also very positively recommend this B&B to everyone! Do not hesitate a second ;)

  • Abbiamo passato un ottimo soggiorno a casa di Tamara e Shanti. Due persone molto gentile e disponibile. Camera piccola ma con tutto il necessario e per un prezzo ottimo. Pulito e del buon cafe la mattina. Abbiamo potuto affitare delle biciclette da loro per solo 5 euro con cui abbiamo girato per Alkmaar e la campagna. Vicino 5 min. a piedi la stazione di Alkmaar per il treno per Amsterdam che dista solo mezz'ora. Il bus per il mare in 20 min. Ritorneremo di sicuro se ci capita. Grazie ancoro di tutto Tamara e Shanti. xxx

I enjoy travelling but also receiving guests. Me and my husband we are passionate about cycling, spending time in nature, cooking and baking, listening to music, reading and gardening. One of the highlights in travel experience was doing a 3 months bicycle tour through the Amazon (Suriname, Guyana, Brazil). We love to exchange travel stories and adventures with our guests and are curious to hear about your experiences. One of my mottos:Leave a place I visit more beautiful than I have found it when I arrived.
