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.
