Bed and breakfast Wildervanck in Amsterdam

In the hart of the old centre of Amsterdam, on the historical Keizersgracht between the Leidsegracht and the Leidsestraat, one can find a fine example of a fashionable 17th-century residence. In 1999 Helene Blok and Sjoerd Wildervanck converted the basement and the ground floor into two comfortable guest rooms. Both rooms look out upon the stately canal and the interesting streetlife and are situated in such a way that the guests can come and go as they please. Only a few minutes' walk takes you to the edge of the inimitable Jordaan, the buzzing Leidseplein or Dam Square with the Red Light District behind. The tram stops within a half minute walking distance from the bed and breakfast In fact the B&B is so centrally located in Amsterdam that almost every touristic sight is within a 20 minutes walk. The facade shows in the top a peculiar and large window frame. It used to be the lightsource for the workshop of the painter Simon Maris. He worked and lived in this house from 1904 till 1927. The house itself has been tastefully redecorated. The blend of modern and antique furnishings, the fine masonry, the old beams and a carefully chosen colour scheme help to create an atmosphere which makes you feel immediately at home. An excellent breakfast of croissants and rolls fresh baked along with freshly squeezed juice is prepared every morning in the large kitchen at the rear. Guests are invited to sit at the long table in the adjacent dining-room where they can enjoy the view of the garden. August 14, 2004 the B&B celebrated its five-yearly anniversary. 2004 was a great year anyway, because many more guests booked at the B&B. The bed and breakfast received attention from a few magazines and travel guides among which the Rick Steve's travel guides and the "guide Michelin". In december Helene and Sjoerd received an unexpected honour: The Dutch Bed en Breakfast Award given by The Foundation of Characterful Bed and Breakfast's.
