Anna's Hoekje (= Anna's corner) is located in a quiet residential area within walking distance from the centre. The station and access to the highway are close by. This cosy B&B is named after the famous local midwife Anna van Hensbeek who lived and worked in the 18th century.
OUDA,is a small place some 25km northeast of Rotterdam, is everything you'd expect of a Dutch country town, with its ring of quiet canals encircling ancient buildings set amid a tangle of narrow lanes and alleys. More surprisingly, its Markt is the largest in the Netherlands
The room has a private access and offers a twinbed (150 cm), airconditioning, television, shower and toilet. A refrigerator and a waterheater provide a drink at any time. During summer time, we will probably offer you a drink on our terrace at one of the many canals.
If you stay some days in the area, we will also love to advise on sightseeing and cycletours.
Great place to stay - really comfortable and nice interiors. The private entrance and bathroom was a perk. Petra's husband Cor (apologies for probably spelling that wrong) got us drinks and relaxed with us on the deck as soon as we got there. They also lent us bikes to go into town and recommended a cool place to eat. The breakfast Cor put together was great.
Plan ahead with a good map. It's close to the train station but can be tricky. They send a good description after booking.
I had a very good first experience with air bnb thanks to petra's place and welcome : The room has its own entrance and sanitary, which allows you a great autonomy. It is near the center of gouda, in a quiet residential area. But mostly it was Petra's attitude that gave me such a nice feeling : caring (teas, chocolates and coffees were waiting in the room ; wonderful breakfast and she had the kindness to drive us to the next city on sunday morning!...) but not intrusive. I recommend her!
Un lieu pratique pour visiter le centre de Gouda, tout proche à vélo, ou visiter les villes environnantes en train. Accueil aimable, de bon conseil, petit déjeuner soigné et copieux. La chambre est agréable. L'annonce laisse penser qu'elle a vue sur le petit canal comme sur la photo, mais ce n'est pas le cas :-)
We arrived early evening and Petra's husband made us welcome. We had our own private entrance to the suite (bedroom, bathroom, fridge and tv). We had wifi access and the listing had been very accurately described. The bed was comfortable and we slept very well indeed, breakfast was provided by Petra next morning. We ate well and we had a lovely chat with Petra before going off to explore (on foot) the pretty centre (pedestrians only) of Gouda. We highly recommend both the listing and our kind host.
Petra was a wonderful host! She was out when we arrived but had left detailed instructions on how to get in, where to find good restaurants, how to access the internet, etc. The place is quite cozy with its own bathroom and is located quite close to the city center. Breakfast in the morning was plentiful and delicious. The best thing was that after we told Petra we wanted to spend the day riding bikes but didn't have good enough maps, she got on the internet, did some research, and printed very detailed cycling maps for us. Thanks, Petra, we really enjoyed our bike ride and took your advice and drove to Kinderdijk later in the day en route to our next destination.
Petra and Cor have a beautiful house and we stayed in our own room with a separate entrance and bathroom. It felt like a studio apartment with it's own fridge, couch, and towels (even some chocolate treats). The location is a quick 5 min bicycle ride to the Central Markt. Cor served us a lovely breakfast with more than enough food to get our day started. We chatted about the Netherlands and many of the places we'd travelled. There is nothing bad to say about this cozy B&B. Great place. Great people.
A nice room with all the expected facilities and a very nice bathroom. Petra was very helpful and checked we had everything we need. The breakfast provided was lovely too. The place is anew easy 10 minute walk to the centre of gouda.
We love discovering countries by cycling. We know exactly what you are looking for when you have cycled a day in the burning sun, the powering rain or a strong wind against you. This is what we stand for when you visit our B&B: a beer, wine (or a hot tea), a good shower and some recommendations where to have dinner.
But we do not only care about cyclists but are happy to welcome all kind of guests for a short period. But please do not bring any dogs...sorry to admit, but I am just afraid of dogs.
