About This Listing
We like to welcome you in our cozy BnB on the most beautiful canal of Amsterdam.
You will stay in a quiet and comfortable studio with own entrance and private bathroom and pantry. The studio is stylishly furnished, decorated with artworks and equipped with all comforts. Our large and comfortable beds guarantee a good rest. In the pantry you will find everything to prepare a fine breakfast. With the Illy coffee machine you easily make best cappuccino's. And every morning we offer fresh rolls, croissants and orange juice.
Leliegracht B&B is located in the middle of the classy canal belt and close to the cozy Jordaan quarter, known for its many restaurants, galleries and little shops. The studio is the perfect base to discover Amsterdam by foot or bike. Ten minutes from Amsterdam Central Station, around the corner of Anne Frank House, within easy reach of the Museum Quarter and within a stone's throw of the central shopping area.
We like to help you to find your way in Amsterdam. We can arrange bicycle rent, if you would like to discover Amsterdam or the lovely Dutch countryside by bike. And if you share our interest in art and culture we can inform you about what is up in town. We work in the field of culture and politics and run an art gallery at the front of our house.
In short: if you look for a comfortable, quiet place in the middle of the liveliness of Amsterdam, Leliegracht BnB is the perfect place to stay.
We are a non-smoking B&B.
Das Zimmer entsprach exakt den eingestellten Fotos. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die gesamte Unterkunft war sauber und schön hergerichtet.
Die Ankunft und die Schlüsselübergabe waren unkompliziert, das kurze Gespräch mit Bastiaan nett.
Im Kühlschrank waren Käse, Wurst, Milch, Orangensaft,... völlig ausreichend für das Frühstück, frische Brötchen jeden Morgen - top.
Die Lage ist Fantastisch, wir haben alles zu Fuß/mit dem Rad erkundet.
Wir kamen spät in Amsterdam an und wurden von Bastiaan freundlich empfangen. Das Studio liegt sehr ideal im historischen Zentrum und ist trotzdem sehr ruhig. Alles war wie auf den Bildern und im Text beschrieben. Frühstück einfach, aber es gibt in der Umgebung ja viele schöne Kaffee`s. Ganz schön war es mit dem Velo auch einen Ausflug nach Marken zu unternehmen und so auch etwas von der wunderschönen Umgebung zu sehen. Velo mieten kann man ganz in der Nähe.
AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE OR RISK BEING INFECTED BY THE PLAGUE
We arrived and were greeted by Bastiaan's partner. We got a very brief overview and were left to our own. We had some snack and breakfast provisions that were very appreciated.
Our first night was horrible, the sheets were not clean and the noise from the apartment above was ridiculous.
Our second morning we awoke to construction outside our bedroom window. A heads up would have been nice. Plus my husband had bites on hi. That we though may have been fleas or some Mosquitos.
Our third night the bed bugs came out. My husband was eaten alive from head to toe. DISGUSTING. Imagine how filthy things must be to be eaten alive by these vermin.
All the while, no response from Bastiaan.
I find it impossible to believe that we were the first people affected by the infestation. So they are taking bookings and having people stay in the apartment knowing its full of bed bugs.
On departure, we came out to construction and the door taped off. Bastiaan finally revealed himself and laughed that if we had of been any later we wouldn't have been able to get out as there were temporary steps in place which were about to be removed (a metre and a half drop to the street). Again, some common decency and courtesy would have been appreciated, giving us notice seems to be the honest and logical approach.
He again never replied to my email when I informed him of the bed bug infestation.
My husbands bites were so bad we had to seek medical advice at our next destination.
NO APOLOGY, NO RESPONSE
Unless they throw out all mattresses and bedding and adjust their "customer service" I would absolutely not recommend staying here.
On a positive note, the apartment is located in a great neighbourhood and perfect location.
Unfortunately, the noise from other apartments above us in the building meant we didn't get much sleep either.
Disgusted and disappointed.
Hi Emma and Rob
I am sorry to hear about your complains, that I was not aware of at time. Somehow your mail did not reach me. This is the first time we had complains like this.
Too bad, that we did not have a chance to talk about this, during your stay.
We loved being on a canal in a beautiful part of Amsterdam. Bastiaan met is and helped us by lifting hour cases up the stairs. (Only a few but very steep) and explaining how to use the coffee machine and where to find local services. He was very pleasant and helpful. We only saw him on one other occasion during our week's stay.
The studio and the area where perfect for our stay in Amsterdam -!!
Foi a primeira vez que usei o Airbnb e confesso que estava um tanto receoso de entrar numa fria. Porém, tenho a dizer que este local é simplesmente maravilhoso, aconchegante, tranquilo, seguro, limpo, silencioso e incrivelmente bem localizado na cativante Amsterdã. Altamente recomendado!
No local, há um frigobar, um micro-ondas e uma máquina de café espresso à disposição. O Bastiaan já coloca no frigobar coisas para o café da manhã (presunto, queijo, leite, etc.) e também coloca, pendurado na maçaneta da porta, uma sacolinha com 4 pães quentinhos! Encantador!
Bem na frente do ponto do tram (bonde), chamado Westermarkt, há um supermercado, só que a princípio você não nota. Mas você verá um letreiro em azul escrito "Albert Heijn" numa loja aparentemente de qualquer outra coisa. Mas pode entrar que é supermercado! Lá tem pratos prontos a um preço bem legal para você aquecer no micro-ondas! No quarto você tem xícaras, pratos, talheres, etc., e todo o material para lavar a louça depois.
Quanto ao banheiro, é bem limpo e o Bastiaan fornece duas toalhas de banho e duas de rosto para a estadia. Lembre-se de estendê-las, pois não há troca diária como nos hotéis.
Para quem chega com malas pesadas, é bom avisar que há uma pequena escadaria, com os degraus bem curtinhos. Mas, pelo que vi na viagem, os holandeses só fazem escadas que cabem meio pé, logo a escada deste quarto é o que você vai encontrar em quase todas as escadas locais...
Enfim, penso eu que o Bastiaan e a sua família poderiam dar cursos de hotelaria para os donos de hotéis! Eles têm muito a aprender com os Griebling!
We had an enjoyable stay at this BnB.
Bastiaan was a welcoming and informative host. The place is well situated on a lively canal and it is easy to explore the main attractions in Amsterdam on foot or by bicycle from there. The tram station is also a short walk away. The room is clean, comfortable and quiet. The morning breakfast with freshly baked warm bread , yoghurt, muesli , cheese and cold meat was a pleasant bonus.
