... I couldn’t visit any of the few windmills in the area, nor the peaceful, picturesque canals for which the area is known. After this I made my way back out of the centre for the Van Gogh, where I spent the next few hours. Though before this I’d only ever seen one Van Gogh and didn’t really know much about the bloke or his painting, I enjoyed the place for the sheer range of his works, from early sketches to what is thought to be his very last painting. I ...
After spending every waking minute with a group of 38 people, a slow transition into solo travel was exactly what I needed. Luckily, several people chose to stay in Amsterdam, rather then go back to London so I had a day or two to adjust to the change. I was a little apprehensive about checking into my hostel as it was both the cheapest I could find and had some mixed reviews. First impressions... Not good. The lobby was in the basement of a townhouse building and was accessed through ...
... i could have gotten some pictures, but they dont allow you to. It is seriously so odd....chicks just in windows all dressed up waiting for someone to pick them. You have to experience it for yourself to know what i am talking about. Since i was a little high i just crashed out on the train home. Ended up staying up for a bit at the hostel and heading to bed. The next day i met up with Christine and Kelsey...now this day i did ...
... and eat it after the shot. After that we went to another club and had 2 jäger shots in test tubes. That was a fun place we just danced the night away like crazy people! I hit up a number 1 :) after that we caught a taxi back to the hotel and went to bed! So so drunk! I am currently writing this diary entry at we enter Germany. We're heading to Berlin today! Can't wait to get there the country side already looks amazing! Rock out! Over and ...
... flooding of the rivers. Seems it took out a bridge on the normal route, and even on the alternate route I could see the result of the rivers rising. Many people have lost homes and livelihoods. So sad… Putting things into that context kept me calm and I just went with the flow (no pun intended) of everything that happened, no complaints here.
Until, that is… I got to Amsterdam and made the mistake of taking a Taxi because I was exhausted. I was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hanna Penso Amsterdam
If you are looking for a special place to stay when you next visit Amsterdam, Hanna Penso is the place to go!
Good accomodation & care
We had the canal room, which is the first room when you arrive to the place. Very quiet, with very comfortable twin beds, flat LCD TV, kitchenette for breakfast, bathroom with shower and separate toilets. Excellent equipment, everything is brand news with typical furnitures.
The caretaker warmly welcomed us.
The position is ideal : very silent but at 10 minutes'walk from Rembrandtplein or den Waag.
I'd warmly recommend this place.
Hanna Penso and Beatrijs are the BEST!
I Stayed here During the Queens Birthday Celebration!
It was Fabulous! The Best! Beatrijs Made
me feel so at home! Accommodations
were Very Clean, Welcoming, and Comfortable!
I stayed in the Front Room with a french
door looking out onto the small cobblestone
Street and Canal! This place is so easy
to get to by Train and is right in the mix
of everthing to you need to do and see!
Trust me... as a Single Female traveling alone..
I was able to find my way on foot and by train
just fine.. Was able to walk to all the
different areas of town.. Take it from
me... WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES!!
Loved this B&B
Wow .. i dont think i can say words which would express how lovely this B&B is. We stayed in the Garden House and had such a memorable time. My boyfriend loved the coffee maker lol. Absolutely great price for 100€ a night. Gorgeous place and amazing staff. A**
Absolutely wonderful! Such attention to detail!
We stayed in the garden house for my combination birthday and wedding anniversary. The place is just beautiful and in a great location right near the heart of the city. On arrival, Beatrijs had a bottle of champagne and chocolates waiting along with a very sweet note - and that was just the start to a relaxing and indulgent weekend. We will surely be recommending to family and friends and can't wait for the chance to go back.
My wife and I stayed for five days in one of the three beautiful and comfortable double rooms in this immaculately restored and updated 18th-century canal house perfectly located at the intersection of the Amstel canal and Nieuwe Keizersgracht, within walking distance of everything you might want to do in Amsterdam. Our room was spacious, very clean and tidy, tastefully furnished, and amply supplied with everything you could need. Newly remodeled, all the fixtures and appliances are new and the internet high-speed access worked perfectly the moment we plugged it into our laptop. The French doors open onto a charming urban garden at the end of which is one of the three rooms, the other two being in the house on the ground floor. The hosts, Jakob Kohnstamm and Beatrice Stemerding, are charming and delightful company, as well as founts of good advice about the City and its environs. Beatrice provided fresh baked goods and restocked our kitchen every day, and gladly filled special requests; her helper cleaned and made up the room every day while we were out exploring. We cannot recommend Hanna Penso more highly than to say we would not think of staying anywhere else when in Amsterdam. Check out www.hannapenso.nl and write to --- -- you won't be sorry.
Beatrijs with the magic touch
if you enjoy walking barefoot on wooden floor, if you appreciate aesthetic
design, if you like a peaceful surrounding with flowers and birds, if you
donīt mind worshipping the cats from next door, well, come here and open your senses-
A Beautiful Garden Pension
If you are seeking a "Great", warm, friendly, "ultra" clean place to stay while in Amsterdam, Hanna Penso is the place to be. Your owner/hostess Beatrijs is extraordinarily warm, friendly, helpful and charming! She will assist you in every aspect of your stay in Amsterdam, ranging from and including places of interest, resturants, stores, transportation, and special events. The garden setting is a wonderful place for breakfast, reading, relaxation and enjoying the peaceful tranquility of Amsterdam. We would return to Hanna Penso and Beatrijs in a heartbeat.
We spent a lovely weekend at Logement Hanna Penso the end of May, '05.
We spent a lovely long weekend in April at the newly opened Hanna Penso, which offers traditional Dutch lodging rooms alongside the owners' own residence. We took a chance and booked the "Garden House" which was a studio type accomodation which looked great on the website, and thankfully turned out to be every bit as desirable and non-shed-like as we'd dared hope! In fact, I can't begin to describe how peaceful and immediately at home we felt, which was greatly helped by Beatrijs and her amazing finishing touches... a well stocked fridge of simple delights, coffee and handmade chocs awaiting, fresh bread and croissants hung in the baker's bag on the door each morning, and of course purple tulips which remained proudly upright all 4 days. I am ALMOST loathe to post this review as it really is the dream destination that you would wish to keep to yourself for fear of it always being fully booked..... BUT, that would be to deprive Beatrijs of the future custom that she so richly deserves. My husband & I are actively looking for excuses and free weekends to escape back there ASAP :-) xx
