5 min's Walk from cs, on famous Brouwersgracht, comfy room with privat faciliteit in my restored canalhouse. All main attractions within walkingdistance and Jordaan and Haarlemmerstraat at doorstep. Complete dutch Breakfast, self service all morning
Superb located bed and breakfast, just 5 minutes walk from central station.
Each room has it's private in-room shower and toilet, this specific room is very suitable for SINGLE or COUPLES!
Buffet breakfast can be enjoyed ANY time in the morning while
overlooking the canal and its passing canalboats. Situated at the Brouwersgracht (appointed as the most beautifull canal) in a traditional canalhouse, renovated in a sturdy classic style.
The Jordaan starts at the opposite side of the canal and the trendy Haarlemmerstreet is my backstreet.
All musea, such as Anne Frank House, van Gogh, Rijksmuseum, stedelijk museum, Scheepvaartmuseum and the Hermitage are within walking distance.
Lots of possibilities around to rent a bike and explore the city in this local way, or take the ferry at central station to A'dam North and bike through the countryside so you will feel the authentic dutch way of living outside the city with it's windmills, cows, sheep and flowerfields.

Riks seems like a good host - he welcomed us to the house with a smile and even recommended some places to visited. His house is in a super convenient location just 7 minutes walk way from Amsterdam Centraal station. You can also get to most of the sight seeing places in less than 30 minutes or so. Included breakfast was eggs, bread, cheese and meat and was available until noon which is nice. There we other guest at the house when we were staying there, but they were really quiet and we only saw them at the breakfast table.
Sadly, there were some downsides to this place as well. The two the really stuck out were (and are related) was heating and hot water. The room is heated via a single small radiator which took a while to change the temperature of the room even on the "max" setting and it never quite got warm enough for my Californian liking. Additionally, the radiators would go cold at night so the temperature in the room would drop. Luckily, we were provided with giant covers that helped us fight the night, but we still wished we had better heated room. Second, hot water was an issue as well for showering. We could not take early morning showers as there was no hot water (I am guessing the same heater controls water for room heating and water for the shower). Once we finally did get some water, it was only for a 5-10 minute shower, so the second person half way into their shower would get scolded with freezing water. That does not seem like much, but after hours of walking in cold Amsterdam all we wanted was a nice long hot shower.
Dear Aurimas, i am sorry for the discomfort you had. Heater temperature drops a bit in general during night as most guests like fresh room to sleep, but this can be adjusted easily for your preference. The warm showerwater is not restricted as it runs on a seperate heater. Please next time inform me whilst you are here, as i am always available for information and help. Kind regards, RIks
Location is in the nicest area of Amsterdam - shopping & restaurants everywhere, main station is 5min away, rooms are clean, silent and have their own bathroom, guests get their own keys - you can come & go whenever you like without worries, breakfast is included, Wlan was working well throughout the house. Riks is a great host, quite relaxed and friendly. He will give you a lovely welcome & introduction to Amsterdam :-)
Riks is a very friendly and helpful host. It was a really good experience to stay at his place. I loved the breakfast concept and the fact that it was until 12:00pm. The location was just perfect, 7min's walk to the central station and everything else is just around you. I would just advice people to travel light if they will be staying here although Riks helped me with my luggage to the third floor. Thank you Riks
Super accueil de Riks qui est très gentil. La chambre est très propre et bien agencée. L'emplacement est idéal. je recommande fortement cet location.
The place is located right in the center of Amsterdam, it is a beautiful house, everything very clean, great breakfast. The host Riks is very nice and helpful, we arrived late and on very short notice, he took the time to explain everything and gave us some tips on what to see and do. We would definitley come back, thanks for a great stay!
Perfect location to stay and delicious breakfast! Room was quite small but cosy and decorated well. Riks a good and knowledgable host. Thanks very much!
It was an amazing trip to amaterdam! Riks was very friendly and totaly cooperative. He showed us a map of ams and let us know where the most important places are. The room was very small but clean and homelike, perfect as an accomodation for a citytrip. Breakfast was very nice as well. A big assortment!
We just met a few other guys who were staying there and they are in the same age as I, I guess, and friendly as well. :-)
