Interaction with Guests
Very typical and beautiful old Dutch neighborhood, about 120 years old. Originally built for the railway workers and their families during the Industrial Revolution. Today the whole neighborhood is a monument, with lots of local culture and activities like music, art, workshops, neighborhood houses etc.
Perfectly located, train and bus station only 2 minutes walking. Bicycles for rent (6 EUR per day), fantastic bike path network through the whole country.
Walking through the city, parks and surrounding.
We have put a lot of love and care into our home and hope that you will treat the room, house and garden as it would be your own. There are no rules, just one detail, if you are a smoker please do so outside in front of the house or in the garden and not inside. Thanks and have a great stay in Alkmaar in your B&B Alkmaar onder de watertoren!

AMAZING!!! Such a sweet woman with such a lovely home. Couldn't have felt more welcome!!! Absolutely wonderful time
Sehr schönes Haus direkt am Bahnhof in Alkmaar. Tamara und ihr Mann sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. 35 Minuten mit dem Zug nach Amsterdam und nur 10 Minuten zu Fuß in die Innenstadt von Alkmaar. Sehr idyllisch und weiter zu empfehlen. Danke!
Tamara and sanitarian were the loveliest hosts we've encountered using airbnb. Their home is incredibly cosy and located in a beautiful area that has convenient access to public transport so getting to and from the main city was incredibly easy. We loved our time in alkmaar riding bikes that are available from Tamara and the beautiful local sights. Would highly recommend staying with Tamara again :)
Es waren sehr schöne Tage bei der ganz lieben Tamara und ihrem Mann! Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Das Zimmer war einfach, aber sehr sauber und die Lage ist gut für viele Ausflüge. Nach Amsterdam kommt man schnell und unkompliziert.
Tamara gave us a warm welcome and picked us from the station. The room is clean and suitable for two people. The location is great, with many restaurants nearby and 5 minute by walking to the Alkmaar station.
But the stairs between first and second floor are bit scary, as it is very steep and hard to climb with a big suitcase.
Tamara is a great host. The room was nice and clean and warm. The breakfast was great and well worth the extra. Tamara and her partner are very nice people and extremely helpful. We would most definitely stay there again!

About the Host, Tamara
I enjoy travelling but also receiving guests. Me and my husband we are passionate about cycling, spending time in nature, cooking and baking, listening to music, reading and gardening.
One of the highlights in travel experience was doing a 3 months bicycle tour through the Amazon (Suriname, Guyana, Brazil). We love to exchange travel stories and adventures with our guests and are curious to hear about your experiences.
One of my mottos:Leave a place I visit more beautiful than I have found it when I arrived.
