Wonderful hospitality and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our three night stay here. The room was comfortable and the neighborhood beautiful. We were within walking distance to the train, tram and bus, canal tour departure areas and many places we wanted to visit. Babette also sent city information beforehand, recommended some nearby restaurants (which we tried and liked) and it was great to be able to message her during our stay with other questions. It was a great experience in Amsterdam!

Fantastic host

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvelous stay! Babette was a fabulous host. We were treated like family. In fact, we met her family and shared their patio space. The accommodations were perfect, and the location was also! Highly recommend! Very modern and clean, and the bed was oh so comfortable after much walking each day! We will stay again if in Amsterdam, and will suggest to family and friends. Miss it already, and we are only at the airport!!!

Perfect location. Perfect Host. Room was spotlessly clean. Bed so comfortable I could take it home.

I hope to stay here again. The location is perfect. The room is beautiful, the bed is wonderful, quiet, and dark. Perfect for sleeping. There were lots of nice little touches, fully supplied bathroom with extras like cotton swabs. There was a special treat the first night by my bed which was greatly appreciated when I was hungry later.

Amazing host even for a short stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I couldn't have kinder words to say about our host Babette. We were only in town for one night during an overnight layover but Babette treated us like family! The room was spacious and we were provided everything we needed for a comfortable stay. I wish we could have stayed longer in this convenient location but if we ever find ourselves back in Amsterdam we will definitely stay here again! Thank you again Babette!

The perfect host with the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Even before our arrival Babette sent a PDF filled with information, guides, and recommendations to the area. Very helpful for our very first time in Amsterdam!

Upon our arrival we were greeted by a very happy & energetic young owner(one of her kids :P) and shortly was introduced to to Babette who was very eager to help us get settled in. She showed us to our room located in the basement through a door in the front of the building. Entryway was very well lit but does have a slightly steep step down into the basement, so be careful if you're stumbling in at night(fun fact: the dutch are on average the tallest people in the world. Steep steps are very common it seems hahaha).

After a couple suggestions on what we might try since it was almost dinner time, she was quick to give us our privacy and was off. She did let me know that I could contact her using WhatsAPP any time I had questions or needed other suggestions on where to go next. I didn't have the app set up, but she was very responsive through email when any questions came up and I could get access to Wifi.

While we were getting settled in, we noticed all the travel books of places she had been, on the book shelf next to the bed. I could have spent all night studying all the places she had been. She even left the famous Dutch stroopwafel treat on the bed for us to enjoy!

The room was located in a very safe area close enough for us to walk anywhere we wanted within 15 minutes. Anne Frank house was no more than a 10 minute walk south. Located right in front of a canal, it was beautiful day and night stepping outside.

Babette was a perfect host with the perfection location for us in Amsterdam. For the few days that we were there, we even walked out to a surprise treat and note she had left for us to enjoy while out in the unusually hot weather for early September! She would even occasionally check through email to make sure we were having a great time!

As she noted, she does have children that can be a little active upstairs in the morning getting ready for school. This didn't bother us though because it made it feel a little more like home.

Do not miss your chance to stay here with Babette! If I had a choice I definitely would have loved to stay longer here with her and maybe even see if she would share some of her stories! I know where I'll be staying the next time we visit Amsterdam!
