... ever been more excited to eat bagels. I didn't realize how often I eat them at home and really have missed them over here.. So of course I got my far share of bagels in those 2 short days..
Friday before dinner we decided to visit the Heineken Brewery and go through the "Heineken Experience." Although at first we were slightly skeptical because it seemed a little pricy, it was most definitely worth the money! By the end of our hour and a half there, we not ...
... bars and nightclubs for those without children!). We had a family room which had three tier bunks on one side and two on the other. Surprisingly comfortable. The girls highlight was the extensive buffet meal on the Friday night and we all got to go to the movies. The girls saw Turbo and Richard and I went to the Cinema beside to see We're the Millers. Can't remember the last time ...
... it would have been like but it made it more powerful. We learned that one of the Frank family members was very interested in photography which is why their family is so well documented. It is fascinating to me that by some stroke of fate one of their family members was interested in photography and Anne was an aspiring journalist. Two little coincidences that make the story much more powerful. We we went to lunch at yummy cafe where I enjoyed a caprese panini and ...
... Begijnhof convent. This inner-city retreat was run by Begijnhof women who were a catholic sect that did not wish to sign up as nuns, but wanted to live a similar life. The group of housing had some of the oldest style houses we had seen in the city and even though the last women died in the 70's, the houses are still exclusively rented out to women. We left there and headed to the Anne Frank museum which is one of the 'must-do's' here in Amsterdam. For the readers who have not ...
... was the butterfly house. Very hot and humid, but dozens of butterflies everywhere, even a area with cocoons. All around the gardens are benches. This truly is an oasis in the city where relaxing with a book would be a perfect pastime. Next, we strolled over a few blocks, being careful to avoid the moving van struggling to pull up to a building for loading. Remember, the streets are narrow. Check out my short movie on how the locals get their things up and down ...

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.
