... city! A few of us went back to the Amsterdam sign to climb to take some photos and then we headed to the Heineken Brewery. We sampled some beer and enjoyed lunch on the rooftop with nothing but the blue sky. What a great way to spend our last day!
Our final dinner consisted of Chinese. I thought that was so funny being abroad, dining in Europe, and eating ...
... Huis. This was about a 15 minute walk from where we were staying so we had no issues getting there for our 10:40 pre-booked appointment time. When we arrived there was a lineup that went clear around the block - maybe about a three or four hour wait to just get tickets. Tom had suggested that we pre-purchase tickets which we did. All we had to do was walk up to the appointment door - ring a buzzer and get let in immediately - wow we ...
... their drinks but came back twenty minutes later with he mojito and then a tequila shot for sam...He did not know what he was doing and then took forever for my margrarita, apparently they got it from another restaurant. It was just rather strange, it took us over an hour to get our food which were nachos. It was just a long day and we were confused as to what was going on and what type of place we went too. After dinner we found a place for drinks called bulldogs, definitely ...
... Such a great atmosphere in there and the burgers are amazing!!!!
Day 4 - Home Day
The worst day. Packing up ready to go. The worst thing about this is packing a backpack that I had to carry about all day long! Ergh.
I thought i'd packed lightly as well. Anywho...we checked out and we headed towards Dam Square area - stopped in Urban Outfitters on the way and playing a cheeky game of Street Fighter - yes that is so cool! Too bad I totally ...
... must have got to the restaurant at about 8pm, then sat at a little out-of-the-way table waiting for one that Marco particularly wanted, then menus took a while to be delivered, and another while for our order to be taken (which was, in any case, just a "chef's selection") and one thing and another. We had only had an amuse bouche and a first course by 9:05, at which stage Marco finally realised how late everything was running and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Suite 259 Amsterdam
What a find at Suite 259!!!!
Arriving after a long flight we were warmly welcomed by Peter and Aziz with a beautiful suite and a fantastic breakfast. I wanted to bring my husband on a special vacation and the owners of Suite 259 made our trip easy, accommodating, and fun. Each morning our breakfast was served in the elegant breakfast area and Peter and Aziz would help us with any of our needs for the day. The Grand Suite was absolutely charming and stocked with everything we could want. The decor was absolutely beautiful and was kept pristine clean. We have decided to return every few months and stay with Peter and Aziz who we know will always provided first class service. We recommend Suite 259 to anyone looking for a pleasant and truly lovely place to stay. Warmly, Kathy and Al
Beautiful Apartment, Fantastic Owners, Suite 259 is #1
My husband and I stayed at Suite 259 for Valentine's week and had a blast! Peter & Aziz are warm, wonderful, funny, helpful and just plain sweet! Peter's amazing DVD collection kept us entertained on cloudy, rainy days and Aziz's breakfast kept us nourished and satisfied every morning. The apartment was truly fantastic, made me not want to come back to New York. It was our second time to "The Dam" and we had as lovely a time as the first visit. The weather was warmer than it is in NY this time of year and we walked and walked until we couldn't walk anymore. If we could find jobs, we'd pack our bags and stay forever. I highly recommend Amsterdam for a European break and if in the Dam you must stay at 259!!!
Peter's help began with his Hello wave upon arrival, carrying our bags up the stairs to the Grand Sahara suite, excellent advise on directions, restuarants, trains and trams and always with good humor.
What a gem!
This is SUCH a lovely place to stay! When we walked into the appartment, we could hardly believe how luxurious it was, and at the same time such a pleasant and unique place to stay - really conveniently located for the musea, shops, trams, everything. Breakfast the next morning was something else yet again! Really delicious and a wonderful start to the day. Lucky us for having found this place and having had the opportunity to stay here. I shall recommend it to all my friends!

I just have to let other travellers to Amsterdam know of this absolutely fabulous bed and breakfast. Me and my husband have been regular guests in Amsterdam for the last 15 years. We used to stay at the big hotels, but since I stumbled on to Suite 259 on the internet I refuse to stay elsewhere. It is simply perfect and you are truly getting a lot for your money. We have stayed in both suites since August 2003 and they are wonderful, although of course there is even more space and luxury in the larger one; Grand Suite Sahara. Beautiful decorations, everything for your comfort; fast and free internet access, DVD player, fresh fruit, coffee machine and complimentary cold beverages, even an excellent bottle of wine to welcome you. The bed linens are amazing and everything is clean, clean, clean! The very friendly hosts Peter and Aziz really know what they are doing. They are also extremely helpful if you need any assistance or information. Aziz is an excellent cook and will make what you wish for breakfast! I did not want to leave and I can´t wait to stay there again. Freyja.
Luxury Apartment with B 7 B fell
Lovely hosts Aziz and Peter made our stay in Amsterdam unforgettable. Our room the Safari suite was well thought out and every need catered for. Breakfast was served in lovely surroundings and varied every day according to what we felt like eating. If you would like to stay in Amsterdam with class then this is your place.
Stylish and homely apartment in the heart amsterdam
What a delight to find accomodation that lives up to your expectations. My partner and I were impressed with the facilities and service provided. We stayed in the studio 'Safari Suite' beautifully decorated and spacious. Every detail in the room is thought of including coffee making facilities, fridge, microwave, complimentarty drinks and even umbrella's for the rainy patches. The hosts Peter and Aziz are friendly and helpful (including calling resturants for bookings). We have travelled extensively over Europe and this is one of our favourite B & B's.
