Historical Traveler Reviews The Flying Pancake B&B Amsterdam
A real great expirience
After a warm personal welcome expressed the host Claudia, we settleld comfortably in a wonderful room. Than we realised to be in the hart of the historical centre of Amsterdam. Our stay totalled to 7 days and these became unforgettable to both of us. The room itself, well designed, offered a lot of space. We feeled quite soon safe and happy. The services, started in the morning with fress fruit juice, fresh bakery, Illy expresso or tea made you ready for an active day. Apart from this, it is really pleasant to exprience free drinks (business class way indeed) and of course the Illy coffee machine to service yourself nicely rather than spending lots of money elsewhere for the same with less quality. In conclusion, if you wish something special we recommend the Flying Pancake as the only it ought to be. We will be back within one year. Thank you Claudia, we will meet again.
Amsterdam the city of Gems - Here's a great hidden gem
Secluded two room B & B with every amenity necessary for a wonderful relaxing stay in Amsterdam. Ideally located near the tram network for easy access into the city.
Excellent facilities, choice of free spirits and a selection of French wine to chose from (to buy), fresh rolls and freshly squeezed juice every morning are just some of items that make this place special.
Claudia the host, was extremely welcoming and made you feel immediately at home.
We spent 5 nights at The Flying Pancake under Claudia's care. It was a wonderful experience. We spent another night in a hotel for the same amount of money and TFP was by far a better value. Claudia quietly left breakfast breads, fruit, yogurt, and fresh squeezed orange juice every morning outside our door, depending on what we asked for. She allowed for privacy, but was accessible if we needed her. The Flying Pancake is located just around the corner from a bakery, so we benefited from the freshly baked breakfast breads. In less than five minutes you can walk to several restaurants, a grocery store, a tobacco shop, the zoo, a butcher shop, a bakery, and the Tram. It was a perfect way to see Amsterdam and surrounding towns. We walked a bit, rode the Tram often and took the train out into the country. When we returned we could always count on a secure and well kept home away from home.
We warmly recommend this place : independent, quiet, spacious, magnificently equipped: you will feel at home. Owners are charming, and make their best to help you organizing your stay, so as you have a good time in this so pleasant city.
An absolute Gem!
My husband and I stayed at TFP for 2 wonderful nights in July. It is an absolute gem! We arrived rather early but Claudia was so welcoming, she showed us the apartment which was absolutely beautiful. It's also in an ideal location for the tube station and only 10 minutes walk into Amsterdam centre.
The apartment is equipped with everything you might need whilst you are there. The kitchenette has a microwave/grill oven, fridge (with juice, milk, water, soft drinks and beer(2euro)) tea/coffee making facility, butter, cheese and preserves for breakfast. The breakfast rolls and cakes are delivered to your door fresh every morning, they taste amazing.
The bathroom will blow your mind, it is so beautifully done. The bed is the most comfortable that I have ever slept in. There was a good music system a large TV and lots of great DVD's to choose from. There were also fresh flowers over the fire place.
Claudia and her husband were genuinely warm and friendly people that made us feel very welcome. They have alot of advise and tips about Amsterdam, trains, trams and places to eat and visit.
We are definitely going to stay there again and maybe take our children too. We would recommend TFP to anyone and everyone.
Shhh, let's just keep this among friends
If ever there was a b&b to reccommend this is the one. The hospitality of the owners was truly welcoming and helpful. The room/suite we stayed in was the loft and what a space. Light, airy and wonderfully designed. Truly fit for kings and queens.
We both look forward to visiting TFP again but if there isn't room then we'll know you let the secret out!
Fantastic B & B in Central Amsterdam
We just returned yesterday, July 7, from our 3-night stay at The Flying Pancake (TFP) in central Amsterdam. Wow! Consider staying at TFP. We cannot say enough about how great this place is. We had a small kitchenette, gorgeous bathroom with steam, and a very comfortable bed. TV/cable are included as well as breakfast each morning. Trams 6, 9, and 14 take you anywhere in the city - they are a short walk from TFP. Tram 6 is 200 feet from the front door!
Claudia and her husband, the owners, also made the stay extremely friendly. They were very helpful with getting us acquainted with the city and recommended some great restaurants and bars in the area. Try La Sala for tapas! We walked and trammed everywhere in the city from TFP.
TFP will give you the true feel of Amsterdam. We highly recommend it to all of our friends and Trip Advisor readers traveling to Amsterdam.
To Claudia and her husband - "Dank u wel" for making our stay in Amsterdam so very pleasant!
Regards, Mike and Lena
Biker friendly....you better believe it!!!
I will start this review by saying that we were over for the TT at Assen. So what drew me to the Flying Pancake was that it was Biker friendly and that there was safe parking,you better belive it!! our 7 Bikes were safer than if at home.
Yes you did read correct there were 7 of us,but the rooms were that large you could have had more in,remember there were also 7 sets of leathers, crash helmets and luggage.
The facilities in the rooms were second to none, Cd player,radio..etc.
Tv,Dvd.......The fridge was prepared with cold beers....we are bikers remember!!!!!!!!
The shower, steam room were just what we needed in the morning for riding back....it is huge.
Our Hosts were superb.....Claudia had just giving birth to twins 2 weeks earlier, and i have now found out that they also have a 2 year old son.
So my only regret is that we missed Claudia the day we left,she was at the Hospital with the Kids.
We will be back next year!!!!!!!!
Great room -- stayed on the top floor
The location was great -- a quiet street, but close enough to walk to everything. The room was a simple, open, homey, comfortable space that made me feel like I had my own apartment. There's a small refrigerator, capaccino maker, all the basiscs we needed. The shower had a beautiful mosaic, hot water, and the ability for a eucalyptus steam. Mmmmm. Claudia, the hostess, was helpful, welcoming, and accommodating. She made us feel right at home, yet gave us our privacy.
I will always stay at The Flying Pancake!
I just got back from my stay at The Flying Pancake in Amsterdam, and here's what I loved about the place ...
1. The location (near the zoo) was on a quiet street off the beaten path, but close enough to walk to everything. You could also rent bikes a few blocks away and easily get everywhere you wanted.
2. The room was a simple, lofty space that made me feel like I had my own apartment. The bed was VERY comfortable and the space was relaxing. The shower had a beautiful mosaic, hot water, and the ability for a eucalyptus steam. Mmmmm.
3. Claudia, the hostess, was helpful, welcoming, and accommodating. She made us feel right at home yet gave us our privacy.
This is a newly rehabbed space, so they are still finalizing a few details (the wireless internet, some light fixtures). However, even now it is a wonderful, wonderful home base for exploring Amsterdam.

... No. not possible.“
Wade shakes his head in confusion and asks, “Um, isn’t this the Botanicals of Europe? The worlds most concentrated area of tulips? The most visually appealing garden in the Northern Hemisphere and the garden considered to be one of the best in all of Europe?” (okay, he didn’t say all of that - I am just trying to give you an idea of how “world famous” these freaking gardens are).
Spent the morning at the Rykesmuseum seeing the 1600s collection of Rembrandt. My favorite was Night Watch but all his work is so dark and dreary! Gary did great -- spent two hours there and then we went to the Hansel and Gretel Cafe where the food and beer were wonderful!! Met three women from the Bronyx in NY! The afternoon ...
... three different road trips there to check out schools (and hockey games!) for Hagan. Each time we rented vacation apartments and stayed for a few nights. (410 km one way, so 820 two ways x 3 = 2460 km).
Somewhere in this time period we also took a couple of night trip to Mostar, Bosnia-Herzegovina (175 km one way) - a town which is so magical and spectacular that I wish everyone we know could spend at least one day there. It was heavily bombed during the ...
... breathe in the gas or air that was in the tall glass. It was amazing to watch and fun to drink. The next one we did was a Russian roulette. You needed 7 people to participate, the shot glasses were lined up in front of you and a shot of sambucca poured into the glasses. He then told us all to turn for a few seconds. When we were told to turn back we each took a turn and choosing what glass we wanted and taking the shot. The 'bullet' in ...
... I found a place to park the bike and walked to Dam Square, which features the nearly Royal Palace, a Madame Tussaud's, some people dressed up as the Grim Reaper, and tour operators vying for business. I was thinking of doing the not-so-free tour, but the tour guide actively approached me and seemed a bit pushy so I said no and decided to do a self guided tour. I visited Beginhof which is a 14-century convent that features a number of historic ...
