We've just returned from a few days' break in Amsterdam with two boys aged 10 and 13.
Stayed in BIbies B&B in the "Latin quarter" of Amsterdam. Must say that the apartment was absolutely brilliant for our needs: clean, spacious, comfortable with a kitchen which enabled us to cater for our family's culinary needs (mostly breakfast and supper one evening.) Bibi and Joop are absolutely lovely and are accommodating without being intrustive, and happy to give warm friendly tips on the best places to visit. It almost felt like staying at a friend's house, though both owners live down the street!
The location is fab - just round the corner from Van Gogh museum and Rijks museum, in a safe bohemian neighbourhood. Try Quinto's for a nice relaxing place for a drink or a bite to eat.
Overall, we have no hesitation in saying that if you are looking for a really nice apartment in a great spot, then Bibi's is well worth a visit.
