Our day started very bright and early - so early breakfast at John Peirres hadn't started, but he had kindly packaged us a brekky to go. I was expecting a juice, and pastry. Maybe an apple. Instead we got a feast, enough for brekky for four! Our breakfast consisted of: - 2 small rolls filled with cheese -2 cheese sandwiches - 2 ham sandwiches - 2 apples - 2 orange juices - 2 chocolate milkshakes - a twin - a praline chocolate bar - 2 waffles What a breakfast! Needless ...

Last weekend we had a deacon reunion in Amsterdam! Four of us from Copenhagen met up with three friends from Vienna and one from Dublin. We stayed at a hostel that was quite an adventure. When we first arrived we were happy with it but were curious about the two people in the room with us. From their stuff we guessed that they were guys. It turns out that they were two thirty year old Colombian men. They basically had opposite schedules as us and would return ...
... Paul told the owner that it was definitely in his top 5 of pies. We will be visiting this place again for sure! Paul also bought a packet of double choc tim tams. Can't find them over here either! On to Jordan ... We kept riding over small bridges (the city has over one hundred canals) until we found ourselves on a wharf in the north overlooking a giant inlet. We thought we were on the coast, but further examination of the map suggested we were actually just at a ...
... short list. At the top of the list seems to be going to a live sex show in the red light district, so we set about figuring how to find one. We pulled into a bar to ask where we might find such a place. Turns out we may have picked the wrong bar. It wasn't a gay bar. It was the gayest bar. We got a friendly welcome and the bar tender was happy to give us directions. Seizing on how uncomfortable the boys are in the bar, Mish decides to capitalise on that and make us stay ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Flying Pancake B&B Amsterdam
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
