About This Listing
Our lovely bed and breakfast is situated near to the Museum District and Vondelpark in the popular and vibrant 19th/20th Century residential neighborhood of Oud-Zuid.
From our bed and breakfast you can easily access the famous Museum Quarter with the Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum and Rijksmuseum. The major museums make this area a unique travelers paradise. Moreover, you will find here many luxury boutiques, cafés and the majestic concert hall, the world famous Concertgebouw from 1888. Because of its highly regarded acoustics, this concert hall is considered one of the finest venues for classical music worldwide. Leidseplein is right at the other end of the Vondelpark. This place is synonymous for nightlife till dawn. At Leidseplein you find the Stadsschouwburg, which is the main theatre, several cinemas, many bars, clubs and restaurants, as well as the famous music temples Paradiso and Melkweg.
Our accommodation is positioned very convenient and a relaxed, half hour walk through Vondelpark will take you to the high-cultural cluster at Museumplein and/or to the very heart of the entertainment area at Leidseplein.
In the surrounding neighborhood you can find everything that makes your weekend break in Amsterdam comfortable and enjoyable. In walking distance there is a wide selection of cafés and delicious take-away. Restaurants range from Thai, Japanese, Indonesian food, to Brazil and Surinam kitchen, a Kosher restaurant and various Italian places. There is an outstanding wine bar next door and a cocktail bar at the corner. In summer one might prefer the beer garden at Vondelpark (at the park entrance across the street). Walking down the street, there are many convenience stores including a well-stocked supermarket (during the week open until 10pm, on Sundays until 7pm), a couple of small grocery stores, several bakeries, an eco-food-store, an exquisite small corner shop with the most delicious ice-cream, and very important - a late night shop that is open until 1am.
Our bed and breakfast offers 2 guest rooms for 2 persons each on the second floor of our private house. One room has the size of 25 m2 (No.1), the other 16 m2 (No.2). The rooms are offered separately, but can be requested together.
This offer concerns the smaller room of 16 m2. The room is modestly furnished with some 1970s / 1980s furniture. It has a French bed with a good matrass. The two rooms share the bathroom which is equipped with a bath tub, washing stand and a toilet. The room has an extra washing stand. Wireless internet is available.
Generally we don’t do breakfast and it is not included in the room rates. There are however two very recommendable cafés in close proximity, which open early in the morning. Using our kitchen for making coffee or tea is always possible.
Our family and child friendly accommodation has been visited by the authors of the German DUMONT travel guides (Amsterdam. DUMONT Reise-Taschenbuch and Amsterdam. DUMONT direkt) and is recommended in the 2012 and 2014 edition.
Our bed and breakfast is easily accessible with public and private transport. The tram lines no.1 and 2 have stops in close proximity to our house and connect straight to the Central Station at the IJ-embankment. The Connexxion bus no.197 connects straight to the 12.5 km distant international airport Schiphol - the ride takes 20 minutes and the closest bus stop to our house is Haarlemmermeerstation. For those coming by car, the motorway exits S106-S107-S108 are very close to our accommodation.
Street parking in our area costs €3 per hour or €21,60 per day (Mo-Sa; Su free parking). Alternatively, in close vicinity to our house, at the northern side of the 1928 Olympic Stadium is a municipal park and ride facility (P+R). Parking in the P+R facility after 10am during the week and during the weekend costs €1 per 24 hours. Parking during the week before 10am costs €8 for the first 24 hours and then €1 per 24 hours. You may leave your car up to 96 hours (4 days) in the garage. Since this is a park and ride facility and the low-priced parking is connected to the use of public transport, it is important that the last check-in with the public transport chip card has been in the center area. If this is not the case, the regular parking fee per hour is applied. The public transport ticket (OV chip card) must be purchased separately at the ticket machine available in the garage.

We had the loveliest time, and even though Holger wasn't there, his family welcomed us warmly. Petra even met us down the street when we got a little lost. The room was clean and big, and we were offered a map and brief rundown of the city. We rented bikes next door and it made our experience riding through Vanderpark memorable. Will come back to Amsterdam for sure
Holger war ein angenehmer, freundlicher und informativer Gastgeber. Die Unterkunft war sehr schön und sauber und entspricht zu 100 % dem Foto.
Wir fanden die Lage des Hauses sehr gut, da wir mit dem Rad unterwegs waren und somit auch andere Teile Amsterdams sahen, nicht nur das Zentrum und Umgebung. Außerdem konnten wir dadurch das beste Cafe der Stadt (Holgers Tipp) kennen- und lieben lernen.- Anne & Max
Der einzig, kleine Kritikpunkt war das kühle Badezimmer .
Wir würden aber jederzeit wieder kommen. :-)
We were very well welcomed by Holger and his family.
Holger took time to present us the city and to explain us what worth to be seen.
The room was comfortable and spacious.
The flat is well located between tram lines n°1 and 2 (20 minutes from central station).
When we arrived at Holger's apartment, he and his son were already home to welcome us. The stairs were steep and they were so good to help us carrying our heavy luggages to our room. Couldn't thank them enough! The room was clean, spacious and bright. Everything was exactly as described in his airbnb page. We were happy with our decision to stay at Holger's apartment and it made our trip to Amsterdam a breeze with no hassle especially with the accessibility / mobility from his apartment to the city centre and airport.
Nous avons passé un super séjour chez Holger ... Nous avons été accueilli par sa femme ( je pense sinon mes excuses ) qui était très accueillante , qui nous a expliqué parfaitement où il fallait aller , quels trams emprunter , où étaient les attractions .. la description pour arriver au logement était parfaite ( bus 197 depuis aéroport arrêt Haarleemweg quelque chose comme ça lol ) ... Ils sont très discrets , serviables, gentils, à votre disposition .... La chambre est idéalement placée .. le quartier est animé mais pas bruyant .. Il y a plein de petits restos , cafés tout prêt ( vous pouvez petit déjeuner facilement et pas cher ) ... les trams pour aller au centre ( 1 et 2 ) sont à deux pas .... la literie est bonne , les sanitaires sont propres .. je recommande vivement les chambres de Holger
Seul regret c est de ne pas avoir eu assez de temps pour plus discuter avec eux et pas assez de temps pour visiter .. A refaire du coup
Petite chambre très agréable, propre et soignée. L'emplacement est quelque peu excentré mais ce n'est pas dérangeant : il suffit de traverser le grand Vondelpark pour aller au centre, ce qui est très sympathique en vélo ou à pieds, ou prendre le tram ce qui est très rapide. Aux alentours du logement se trouvent de bons petits restaurants, une superette (ce qui est toujours pratique!) et de très jolies habitations : agréable donc pour s'y promener. Enfin Petra et son fils, qui nous ont accueilli, sont souriants, sympathiques, nous ont donner quelques conseils et bons plans, mais ont aussi su nous laisser notre intimité. En bref, nous avons passé un très bon séjour chez Holger et Petra !

About the Host, Holger
Live responsible and enjoy life. Being an architect and urban designer I very much love visiting cities and meeting people from different backgrounds and countries. Isn't it fantastic that until now, we had guests from more than 45 countries?
