Boutique B&B Kamer01
Ranked #2 of 338 Amsterdam B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 November 2011

When you stay in Kamer01 you realise that you've finally found the place you always dreamed of, but thought couldn't possibly exist. It is super stylish but also comfortable, in a central location that is also quiet and peaceful. You know you're off to a good start when you are offered a glass of champagne on arrival served in a glass that has been kept in the freezer. We stayed in the blue room with it's very comfortable round bed and fabulous bathroom. There is also a small living area with an Apple computer which we really appreciated.

The outstanding breakfast is simple, excellent quality food which is beautifully presented and accompanied by freshly squeezed fruit juice and freshly made coffee. Sitting at the breakfast table overlooking the canal is a perfect start to anyone's day. You will also be offered drinks and snacks at the end of the afternoon when you return from your day out. The fridge is well stocked for the guests to use when they wish.

All of the above is indeed wonderful, but what makes this place special is not even the attention to detail, but is the kindness shown to the guests by the hosts. Peter and Wolter have a way of making you feel good from the minute you arrive to the minute you leave. We didn't see much of Wolter as he was working but he did make me laugh and I'm sure I have missed many good stories. However my husband and I loved talking to Peter who is intelligent, well informed, knowledgeable on many subjects and very witty. The advice he gave us on where to go and what restaurants to go to made this a very stress free holiday.

Does this all sound too good to be true. Probably! And yet it is actually all true. We loved it and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. We enjoyed Amsterdam and went on the canal boat tour, to the Anne Frank House and the Van Gogh Museum but actually spent most of our time walking around looking at all the buildings and lovely shops which are like bag and shoe heaven. But the best bit was knowing that we had such an amazing place to go back to. If we go back to this city, we would not even consider looking for anywhere else to stay.

Thank you Peter and Wolter and off course the lovely Tommy.

My husband and I have traveled internationally for business and pleasure for decades. Hands down, the Kamer01 B&B in Amsterdam is the best B&B that we have ever stayed at. It is superb on multiple dimensions. Location: the historic house faces the Singel canal, with every room having a view of the swirling pedestrian, boat, and bicyle traffic along the canal and its banks. Splendid for people watching. The house is also located close to multiple tram lines and the major museums of Amsterdam. Hosts: Peter and Wolter (and their dog Tommie!) are simply lovely hosts. Peter has a droll sense of humor; Wolter, a theatrical one. Together they created a lot of laughter. And Tommie is just a happy, welcoming dog. Peter and Wolter gave excellent advice about day trips out of Amsterdam, restaurants, and museums; they made reservations with detailed transit information; they provided us with tram cards that we topped up before leaving. They provided delightful company at breakfast. Rooms: we stayed in the Red Room. It was simply stunning, with glorious reds, a mix of Dutch antiques and modern furniture, stained black floors, striated grey marble in the bathroom, and multiple unique and pleasing touches. I suspect that the other B&B room is equally beautiful. Peter is a truly gifted designer. Breakfasts: excellent. Our hosts fixed us whatever we wanted in the way of eggs and coffees and teas and always had delicious fruits, yogurts, cheeses, hams, pastries, and jams for us. The presentation every morning was an artistic delight.

It would be impossible to improve on this unique B&B experinece. We recommend Kamer01 without reservation. Susie B4

Room Tip: There are only two rooms. See our comments about the Red Room. We did not see the Blue Room.

We stayed with Peter and Wolter six months ago and we still shake our heads at how lucky we were to find this absolute gem. The rooms are fantastic, the location extraordinary, the company absolutely great and the breakfasts are the best we have ever had. We would now never stay anywhere else in Amsterdam and would recommend Kamer01 without a moments hesitation.

If you really want to “live” Amsterdam, this is the place for you. The owners of Kamer01, Peter and Wolter (and of course Tommie – their sweet doggie) are the definitive hosts and their knowledge of Amsterdam is encyclopedic. We are experienced travelers and have stayed in many great hotels. Two years ago we tried a B&B (for the first time) in Normandy and had a fabulous experience. We decided that staying in a canal house B&B might be the ultimate Amsterdam experience. I came across Kamer01 on the web and there were only great reviews – not one negative comment anywhere. I thought this place must be too good to be true. Well, I now have my own great review to add to all the others.

We arrived in Amsterdam off a river cruise ship much earlier than I had anticipated. We went directly to our B&B fully expecting to just drop our luggage off and apologize for our early arrival. , Peter met us at the door and was so gracious. He was surprised to see us so early, but immediately took our luggage up to the kitchen. He did some last minute checking of our room and said we could go up and get settled. We were very appreciative and knew we were off to a great start in Amsterdam.

We stayed 4 nights and really felt as if this was our home away from home. The location is simply the best. You can literally walk to everything. The breakfasts were elegantly presented, wonderful baked goods, cheese, fresh orange juice, fruit and I am sure anything else you could ask for, but I could not think of a thing. We were in the red room - very spacious with 2 large windows overlooking the canal and another window at the back. There was a sofa, chair with lots of room to spread out. The bed was very comfortable and the desk, with apple computer (although we had our own computers) was quite convenient. The internet service was complimentary and excellent – maybe better than we have at home! The very contemporary bath was a treat – well thought out with very nice fixtures and a great shower with lots of pressure. The room had fresh flowers and bottled water – what more could you ask for?

We were a bit apprehensive about the winding, narrow stairway, but quickly figured it out. Thankfully, Peter saw to our luggage. We could not have handled our luggage on the stairs. Handling ourselves was challenge enough, but added to our “real” Amsterdam experience.

Peter and Wolter were a wealth of information. I came to Amsterdam well prepared with my list and maps of things I wanted to see and do. They added good insight and suggestions. There is nothing like local knowledge. The only thing I would have done differently was to ask them how to use the trams at the beginning of our trip. We finally figured them out at the end – our mistake. This is truly a wonderful place to stay, but what make it so special are Peter, Wolter and Tommie. We enjoyed our conversations with Peter and Wolter and loved our time with Tommie – when he was awake. This is not your morning dog – but a sweet, well behaved love. Bottom line – outstanding, great attention to detail, a wonderful experience. It is worth a trip to Amsterdam just to stay here.

Room Tip: We were in the red room and did not go up to see the blue room, but I am sure you would not go wrong...

I was in Amsterdam traveling recently and was able on very short notice to secure a room at Kamer01. Due to my last minute scheduling, I stayed in both the Red Room and the Blue Room. Both were beautifully designed with great views of the canal. Kamer01 is extremely well located. The breakfasts are terrific and the fridge in the kitchen is always stocked with beers, wine, cheeses and other snacks. When you return home from dinner in the evening there are chocolates and cookies and choice liquores awaiting. What really makes Kamer01 special, however, are Peter and Walter. They are incredibly knowledgeable about Amsterdam, its history, its people and current issues. Without in the slightest being intrusive, they make sure that you are taken care of. I had a great conversation one morning with Walter about their work rennovating the building, and before long we were talking about the old Jewish synogogue in the jewish quarter and the origins of the coffee trade in Holland. I had told Peter at one point that I was developing a real taste for dutch Jenever (gin). The night before I left he suggested that I go to a Jenever tasting bar (and restaurant) around the corner, De Admiral. It was terrific. I would never have known about it if Peter had not suggested it, and it turned out to be a real trip highlight. I do not consider myself to be a Bed & Breakfast type person, and usually like just to be left alone, but I really enjoyed talking to Peter and Walter and staying at their hotel, and I'm sure you will too.
