The Guardian: cute and quirky B&B in Amsterdam

The Guardian considers Between in their top 10: 10 of the best budget hotels and hostels in Amsterdam and describing it as a cute alternative to design and boutique hotels, describing it as quirky with lovingly decorated rooms.

We had the best time, and it was certainly the best trip of my life!

Hi Irene!

I just wanted to stop by and thank you again for having us over at your B&B and for being so incredibly nice to us! We had the best time, and it was certainly the best trip of my life! I fell in love with Amsterdam, and my only New Years resolution this year is to move there in August the latest!
We had a great time in Copenhagen, but your B&B set really high standards so being in a normal hostel was hard to get used to, haha!
Anyway, I am back to reality, at work at the moment, and I will write a review of your place as soon as I have some more time.
I hope you are doing great and wish you guys the best for this New Year!


It was all I need

God!! I owe this message to Irene since 2011!! I stayed at Between Art and Kitsch for 5 days and it was all I need: great location, Irene is a nice, kind and helpfull host and gave great tips to where to eat, where to go and price was ok!! All clean, shower great, cozy room. A very pleasant experience being in Netherland and staying there!!! Thank you, Irene! Wanna be back!

Bedankt voor het warme onthaal

Beste mevrouw,

Ons bezoek aan Amsterdam was een enorme meevaller mede dank zij jouw warm onthaal, je leuke babbel, je lekker ontbijt, je gezellige kamer.
Hartelijk bedankt.

Met vriendelijke groet,

A wonderful time in Amsterdam

I just wanted to drop you a line to say “Thank You” for looking after my two girls. They had a wonderful time in Amsterdam & this is largely due to you & the time they spent there with your help & guidance – after all the countries they visited on their holiday they said Amsterdam was the city they would like to return to! Thank you again for your kindness in looking after my daughters – they also told me your home was always clean & they had more than enough to eat!

We had a great experience

Hello Irene!!! We stayed with you at the end of July and we just wanted to thank you for being so great to us and sweet, you had a beautiful home and we are. Very thankful to have stayed there! We had a great experience and when we’re back we will be in touch with you and recommending you to our friends! Thanks again!!

Herzlichen Dank

Ich möchte mich auf diesem Wege nochmals SEHR herzlich für die freundliche Aufnahme bedanken! Wir waren ganz überwältigt von den vielen wunderschönen Eindrücken, die wir aus Amsterdam und Umgebung mitgenommen haben. Dieser Urlaub wird uns noch lange in Erinnerung bleiben!

Your B&B is wonderful

Just to say thank you for your hospitailty. Your B&B is wonderful and I love your taste in decor. The room we had was perfect, the location was ideal. Thank you as well for being a dog-lover as we don’t know what we would have done if we hadn’t been able to bring Lily with us. I loved th city and found so much more to do there than I did back in the 80’s.

Clean, comfortable and cozy

Our wonderful landlady Irene was there to greet us upon arrival and showed us to our hippy chick room with a great view of the canal and the Rijksmuseum beyond. Everything was clean, comfortable and cozy. The ensuite bathroom was obviously recently remodeled and gave us great hot showers every morning.
