Situated on a lovely Amsterdam canal directly opposite the entrance to Vondelpark is the boutique Bed and Breakfast Amsterdam. The century old canal house is clean, white and bright with red plush carpeting throughout. With a No Shoes policy, you should bring slippers or a pair of fluffy socks. All shoes are left at the front door beside the container of red and white umbrellas that match the interior décor.
Enjoy the quiet neighborhood
Enjoy your time in a quiet residential neighborhood, within walking distance to everything you need. The century-old canal house is located in southwest Amsterdam. With its potted tree at the front door, slate blue facade, and typical canal architecture, it’s a welcoming home away from home. The neighborhood features seventeen ethnic restaurants, not including a magnificent cafe a few steps away on the corner. Many locals meet here year round for drinks and superb cuisine.
Getting there and around
Before leaving the airport or train station you must call to notify the owners, Paul and Karen that you are on your way – a requirement because they are not always home. They prefer guests to arrive before 14:00 or after 18:00. Upon booking your accommodations you will receive very detailed directions to get to Bed & Breakfast Amsterdam; whether you arrive by train or by air, you will have ease finding the home.
It is seven minutes by tram to the city center, but with a meander through the very popular and most beautiful park, Vondelpark, you will arrive at the city center in under 30 minutes. You may just want to spend the afternoon in the vibrant park with the many locals who enjoy it daily.
Enjoy the environmentally friendly facilities
The environmentally friendly B&B has completely covered its roof with solar panels and sedum – green plants that are great for insects, bees, and makes the city a greener place. Energy saving light bulbs are used throughout the property. All laundry is done in house, with powder that doesn’t contain bleach or perfume and is line dried.

Tea and coffee making facilities are always available in the hallway kitchenette area. Every afternoon some fresh baked goods always ‘just appear’ for guests to help themselves to.
