Great first b&b experience thaks to sweet Caroline !
As other people already said she's a truly nice person who's always there to help you out with anything ( great guide to tell where to go & how to get there + she even took me on her electric motorcycle to go to an organic store!).
The place is ultra clean, much light, the cats are adorable, the garden is zen,...
And above all this, the price is realy cheap > what else could you wish for ?
This is my best B&B experience ever! I would readily prefer it to a faceless hotel, as Caroline's house has both, homey warmth and hotel-like soft towels and linens, fresh flowers, and even a small bottle of wine as a compliment in the room. The rooms are decorated with a decent taste and a big heart. The house has a beautiful garden and is just 10 minutes walk to the Almere Central Station. But, what makes the house precious is its lady open and caring to her visitors.
My stay at Caroline's was really just perfect. I can't say enough about how nice it was. Caroline is so sweet and helpful - she met me at the train station and carted my luggage on her bike back to the house and then took me and my bags back to the train station when it was time to leave. Her breakfast was delicious and I got to try some Dutch favorites. The room is beautiful and so comfortable and quiet. The house is in a nice neighborhood with a grocery store just around the corner and both a big shopping area and peaceful green parks a few minutes walk away.
I give my highest recommendation to Caroline's B&B. If you are visiting Amsterdam, do yourself a favor and get out of the city to spend a few nights relaxing here! Thank you, Caroline, for the perfect ending to my trip!
Caroline welcomes us very friendly. It was a real pleasure to spend this week-end in such a quiet place, less than 30 mn from Amsterdam centre. Caroline is a nice person, taking great care of her guest.
A good place to sleep and relax. Clean, comfortable, spacious and near to the city center. Caroline is very friendly and pleasant. I recommend this bed & breakfast.
A perfect place for your stay in the Amsterdam area! Caroline's B&B is clean, cozy, and delightfully decorated (and the best is wonderful after a long day of sight seeing!) Caroline is a warm, sweet host and will take very good care of you! It was a great place to stay as a young woman traveling on my own. She'll make you a great breakfast in the morning too!
You just need to be prepared to make the commute to Amsterdam everyday, if that's what you're visiting. A round-trip day ticket is about 11 euros with the train (the station is pretty close to her house), but it's TOTALLY worth it!
Thanks so much Caroline! I would definitely stay again with you on my next trip to Amsterdam!
Caroline was a very warm and nice person, we really felt like at home :) she was very helpful and gave us a Lot of idea at all. Her house is easy to find. The room is very comfortable, bright, cleaned and lovely decorated. My opinion: It is better then a Hotel :)
Her cats are very harmless and cute! Thanks a Lot Caroline! I promise I will be back again! ;)
I wish you great success with B&B :) See you!
I felt very welcome in Caroline's house and the room was great - very cosy, clean, and everything you might need was there. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay in Almere or near Amsterdam - look no further!
