The Space

You are welcome in my Bed & Breakfast the Mermaid in Almere, near to Amsterdam!

Three things guests liked about my B&B:
1. nicely decorated and super comfy beds
2. excellent public transport
3. personal touch

Why guests didn't choose for my B&B
1. not suitable to combine with Amsterdam night life after 2 am because there is no public transport between 2-6 am
2. costs of a return ticket by train to Amsterdam are € 12,90
3. shared bathroom
