Excellent - as ever

We've stayed here regularly since The Pancake opened and always loved the welcome and the quality of the accommodation. It really is a fantastic place to stay and we can't wait to return in the near future.

Fantastic place to stay

I spent in Flying Pancake 3 nights and it was very nice stay. Our room was called Cook´s room and this room is higher than the second one. For us it was great choice. The room is very romantic and you sleep on the higher floor. We appreciate a lot a steam. The owner Claudia is very helpful and friendly. Perfect is also breakfast in the basket and you can choose what you want ( selection of fresh juice, cheeses, muesli ect. ). The flat is closed to the centre, just short walk. I recommend to every one to go there. It was really perfect. Thank Claudia.

It was fantastic

We stayed at the Flying Pancake for 3 nights and it was fantastic. Claudia the host is very friendly and told us all we needed to know. We stayed in the Cook Suite which is equipment with everything you might need. This includes, CDs, stereo, iPod player, TV, steam room / shower, fancy lighting controlled from a remote control, tea and coffee facilities. Breakfast was great, delivered in a basket each morning.

Heaven

Stylish, friendly, relaxed, family-run slice of heaven.

Makes me feel at home!

Wether I am here for two days or longer, I always experience the same high standards. The Flying Pancake makes me feel at home!

The beds and linens are all high quality

A long-overdue review for a b&b that really made our stay in Amsterdam special. Claudia was always available and helpful with directions, laundry and even lent her coat to this then-pregnant guest when the weather got cold. The location was very convenient to everything and the rooms-we stayed in both-are each unique, clean and very comfortable. The beds and linens are all high quality and the breakfast and Illy coffee very nice. The wide selection of music and DVDs is wonderful for staying in after a long day of sightseeing! A great place that I would gladly go back to and I recommend it to all my friends. Thank you, Claudia!

Really great

Amenities and features were really great. It's a worthwhile vacation.

I especially enjoyed the steam shower

I’ve seen a lot of B&B’s, but I will remember the Flying Pancake for a long time. What a lovely place this is! Very comfortable and charming, and I especially enjoyed the steam shower. Claudia is a great host and made me feel at home right away. I’ll definitely recommend this place to my friends.

Claudia was a great landlady

The best B&B I've ever stayed in. Room was lovely, very clean with a wonderful bathroom with a steam shower. Breakfast was at your door every morning with fresh breads, cheeses and meats. Claudia was a great landlady and provide us bikes and precious hints/suggestions. Would definitely stay here again.

Level and quality of amenities is very high

The Flying Pancake offers two separate apartments on the top floors of a typical Dutch house. Each one consists of cooking area, bedroom, living area and bathroom. The level and quality of amenities is very high - the overall feeling is of informal, comfort. I've stayed here several times, and look forward to doing so again later in the year.

So much more personal than a hotel

Quiet, quaint, great location, good food for breakfast! So much more personal than a hotel. Very clean and all ammenities provided!

Gracious and accomodating host

Last week was my second stay at The Flying Pancake while visiting Amsterdam. The Captain's Cabin was spacious, comfortable, charming, and the steam shower will be sorely missed until my next visit. Claudia ensured that all my questions were answered, and she is truly a gracious and accomodating host. The Pancake is located in an historic old Jewish quarter and while not directly in the "party" area of the city, it is within just a few steps of the trams which will get you anywhere you wish to go in the city. The #9 tram comes along every 10 minutes or so and will get you to Rembrandt Square - one of the several "entertainment areas" - within just a few minutes ride. If you prefer your own transportation, Claudia has bikes to rent at very reasonable rates, and there is an electric scooter sales and rental business just a few doors down the street which rents at 5 Euro a day less than anywhere else I saw.

The Flying Pancake is definitely on my recommended B&B list for anyone wishing a wonderful experience while in beautiful Amsterdam.

Would choose this over a hotel every time

The Cook's Suite - March 2010. Top marks = 10/10. A truly special guesthouse experience with great attention to detail. A warm and welcoming 'innkeeper.' The location is not absolutely central, but this means you get to see far more of the district between the guesthouse and the city centre and = peace and quiet when you wish for it! Would choose this over a hotel every time. Just be prepared for the typically steep and narrow Dutch staircases! Thanks Claudia for a wonderful few days... Best wishes, Michael and Debbie

A lovely time!

I have had a lovely time staying here. It met (and exceeded) my expectations. Thank you for everything!
