About this listing
A nice and quiet, spacious attic floor with private bathroom, roof terrace and breakfast next to the bustling Strijp-S, the new cultural heart of the city and home to STRP, Dutch Design Week, trendy restaurants and visited by international music-acts!
The attic floor consists of the entrance with (steep!) stairs to the roof terrace, a spacious, bright room and a separate private bathroom.
The roof terrace offers a place to lounge and relax with a view on Eindhoven. We serve a cool beer, a glass of wine or iced tea if you like. There's also a little fireplace to add an extra spark of romance.
The spacious and bright room has a bed for 2 and a bed for 1 but we have extra mattresses and bed linen if necessary. There's a large table with chairs for 4 persons where we can serve food, a really good latte machiato or maybe you want to work there. We offer free WIFI and cable TV and there are lots of books, films, records and boardgames for you to enjoy.
The bathroom is nice and clean with your own towels, hot shower, toilet, washing machine, iron and ironing board. There is also a fridge.
We can provide taxi-service, bikes, maps and hundreds of things to do or don't in and around Eindhoven. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.
Bed & Breakfast Benjamin is only a 5 minutes walk from the Eindhoven Beukenlaan train station and Strijp-S.
We’ll get you a bike and within 5 minutes you're in the "Kruisstraat" with multicultural shops, grocery stores and restaurants (Turkish, Indian, Italian, Greek, Asian, Moroccan). Also an Albert Heijn and an organic supermarket can be found there.
It will take you 5 minutes more to get to the city with it’s famous Stratumseind with 60 bars in 1 street, van Abbe museum of modern art, the Effenaar and Bermuda club, Design Academy and Technical University, Philips and DAF museum. Or maybe you rather take a nice and easy 5 minute walk to the park with it’s juicy green meadows...
For international travellers: from Eindhoven Airport the bus will get you to us in 25 minutes.
Hope to see you soon!
The whole top floor is yours and you are welcome to enjoy the roof terrace too but please be careful on the stairs!

Our stay in Eindhoven was great, Maud Nick and her boys are really kind and helpful. Also its a peaceful house to stay, the room is big with a own bathroom and the best place is on the rooftop. In the morning we became a breakfast served in the room:-)))))!!! Great.
Thanks a lot to make our trip to eindhoven perfect.

Maud and Nick and their 2 boys were superb people who made sure that I was warmedly welcomed into their home. The room was clean, spacious and is provided with amenities such as tea and coffee. The bed was quite comfortable and the sheets are clean. A refrigerator and a separate bathroom are provided for me to use, which made my stay even more convenient. No matter how busy there were during the day, they always found time to connect with you to find out your needs. The breakfast Maud prepared during my stay was very hearty.
Prima plek om te overnachten vlakbij het nieuwe hippe plekje Strijp-S in Eindhoven. Het welkom was zeer hartelijk en we voelden ons meteen thuis in de mooie zolderkamer. Het heerlijke ontbijt met zelf gebakken brood de volgende ochtend op het dakterras maakte ons verblijf helemaal af!
Maud & Nick was a wonderful host and very helpful. On arrival day, my colleague and I was late than the time mentioned because schedule changed and Nick came back from his program just to hands us the key (I still feel bad about this). They make sure we had a comfortable stay and even got me halal meat for breakfast. Love their place especially the roof top, was a superb stay. Even though our schedule in Eindhoven was quite packed, they tried to give their time for conversation. Will surely be coming back to Maud & Nick whenever in Eindhoven. They are such a sweet couple and a lovely family.
I had a very nice time at Maud's and Nick's place. They made me feel welcome, lent me a bike and were very helpful. Great breakfast!
The room is beautiful and in a very quiet, yet central neighborhood.
