Bibies BB
Ranked #230 of 338 Amsterdam B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 August 2011

We stayed for only three days and we loved being there. Close to the central of the city, comfortable, felt like home. The owner was nice too. She gave some information that we needed it.

There are 2 rooms. Since we were 4 with the kids, we got the room near the street. At night during weekend, it was a bit noisy until 2-3 AM.

Room Tip: If you travel alone or with a spouse, better to get another room (not near the street).

I have spent many hours checking reviews in Tripadvisor to book a hotel for our arrival in Amsterdam from Kuwait, and thank goodness! Hopefully we have avoided the bedbugs, mice, indifferent staff etc!
Then the cursor fell on Bibies BB on the map! A B&B wasn't what we had in mind for a stop-offt, but neither was what I could see in hotels in Amasterdam either. A quick mail to Bibie showed that she is fully booked for our arrival, but what did she do? She arranged for us to stay close-by at another B&B, also at a reasonable rate! A quick phonecall and it's all arranged, hopefully our stay will be as good as the help so far and my wife will enjoy acclimatising to COOL Amsterdam, I'll let you know!

Bibies is located in a very good position, walking distance from the musem district and you could reach easily everything within a 15 to 30 minutes walk!
The BB is cozy and well arranged, beds are very comfortable...though only one thing surprised me, as we were only 3 girls we've been accommodated all in one room, and if you consider that the apartment has two bedroom you may have to share with somebody else the living room, the well furnished kitchen and the bathroom...
Bibi is very kind and helpful, she leaves a laptop which you can use, food in the cupboards and you just need to help yourself and loads of depliant and books about amsterdam!
I surely will recommend this place!!!

Bibie is a great host - she stocked the kitchen for us and kindly stayed up to greet us as we didn't arrive until 10 PM. The apartment we stayed in was spacious; it felt like quite a luxury to have more than one room. The apartment was within walking distance of museums and the center of town. There is a tram stop nearby as well. It was great to be a bit outside the main drag.

If you believe that finding a quite place in the center of a chaotic city (funnily chaotic in fact) as Amsterdam is a oxymoron, Bibies BB will change your mind. It is really close to the center, but in a quiet street. The windows of my room was giving on the street but I appreciated the fact that on Saturday night there was almost no external noise. BB has been so kind to let me stay in the apartment up to 17:00 (because my flight was leaving in the evening) and to welcome me at 19:00, were usually in many B&B pretend you to be there before 13:00.
Normally in a B&B you occupy a room in the house of the landlord that often doesn't want to see you too much around, he could serve you the breakfast at a time that is too early or too late for you and often you don't feel yourself at home. In that case you share the apartment (2 rooms flat) with another guest and you see the landlady only when she fill the fridge with eggs, fruit juice or the other staff that you could wish for breakfast.
When you wake up either very early, if you are there for a job, or quite late if you abuse of the opportunities of the city, you can cook your breakfast and if you wish you can also use the fridge and kitchen for lunch and dinner. The neighborhood are however full of restaurants, but if your are short in money, you could consider the inexpensive Saturday morning market that is close by. At Bibies BB I felt much more "at home" than in a Hotel or in other B&B in which I have been.
The rooms are above average with TV and hairdryer. Maybe the bathroom is a bit basic, but it is fine if you consider you share it only with the guest of the other room.
There was a disappointing note. Bibies (the landlady) installed the Free wi-fi network the day I left.
