Welcome to Bed and Breakfast Gallery located on at the corner of the Roomolenstraat and the Langestraat, both quiet little streets in the canal belt. Although not directly on a canal, the street is surrounded by 4 canals, the Singel, the Blauwburgwal, the Herengracht and the Brouwersgracht. Nestled between the four canals, in the heart of the old city center, we have the first, second and third floors of lovely house built in the late 1700’s.
B&B Gallery is within walking distance to all major tourist attractions. The Anne Frank house is just a 5 minute walk, Dam Square is no more than 10 minutes, the Flower Market is 15 minutes and the Rijksmuseum and van Gogh Museum are about 20-25 minutes. The closest tram from where you can take a tram to all but the Anne Frank House is just 2 minutes from the B&B. While our street is quiet, really almost a little hidden street, we are close to to Centraal Station, the Haarlemmerstraat and the Jordaan. We are just a minute or 2 from a variety of cafes, gallerys and quirky little stores.
B&B Gallery has a Suite and a double guest room. Both lovely and decorated with your comfort in mind. Our Suite is located on the first floor and can sleep a maximum of 3 guests. Our Double guest room can sleep 2 guests in a large double bed.
Our home is filled with light. While all the main rooms have large windows, the living rooms have a full wall of floor to ceiling windows and lovely views of 2 typical old Amsterdam streets. While the street address is Roomolenstraat 8, you enter through our side door on the Langestraat. There is a small entry hall and a stairway which you take to the first floor where there is an entrance into our B&B Suite. Then up to the 2nd floor where we have our living room, kitchen and double guest room. The 3rd floor is where we have our private rooms. The building is set up so that each floor can function as a one bedroom apartment, or all together can make up a family home. We use the first floor as a suite and the 2nd and 3rd floor as our home with a double B&B guest room. We live on-site and are available if you want recommendations, reservations or have other questions.
Our Suite is a lovely one bedroom apartment with classic old Dutch details. It is located on our first floor but has it's own private entrance off the stairway. The suite consists of a fully equipped kitchen, living room, bath and bedroom with a queen size bed (160x200). There is also a pull-out sofa bed that is a narrow double (120x195) that comfortably sleeps 1 person. Breakfast is self-catering; breakfast foods will be supplied for you to prepare at your convenience. There is a 2 night minimum for bookings at all times.
Our Double room is located on the 2nd floor along with our living room and kitchen. Also furnished for comfort, our double room has a queen size bed (160x200) and private, but not en-suite bath. The bath is located in the apartment, just across the hall and only 2-4 steps from the room. Because our private quarters (and bath) are located on the 3rd floor, the bath and separate toilet are truly private to the guests. We are in and out during the day but try to work with our guests to ensure they have privacy between 9-10pm to 9-10am. Guests in the double room are welcome to use the living room to hang out and watch tv/dvds, read, write letters or play cards (games) at the table. There is a 2 night minimum for bookings that include Friday and Saturday. We will accept single night bookings Sunday-Thursday nights.
