To our future guests,
In relation to the last review we like to explain what is the meaning of a Bed & Breakfast.
A B&B means staying in people’s home, by Dutch law the owner or host has to live in the building.
Lovely place to stay in a superb location! B & B is kept very clean and the host Belinda put on a great breakfast. Cant say there was a down side but prepare for a giggle getting your suitcase up the traditional steep spiral staircase!

Experience the romance of the Old Amsterdam at the Brownstone B&B. This charming 1900 Old-building was completely restored in 2001, preserving its romance and charm, while adding new amenities and conveniences to make your stay more enjoyable. The hosts have travelled the world and have worked in some of the best Hotels. The Brownstone B&B provides the warmth and quality of personal service and hospitality that can only be found in a Bed and Breakfast.

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
