Dear guest,

At this moment I do not take new reservations, because I am too busy with my regular job as a photographer. As soon as it is possible, new reservations will be accepted.

It is important to me to offer the best possible service to my guests and I rather close the B&B then have an unsatisfied guest. Please come back to this site in a few weeks.


Your host, Erik

Erik, your hostPlease allow me to start the information of this Bed and Breakfast with a short introduction of myself. I am a freelance photographer, 49 years old and single. I am the only habitant of the house. Photography is not only my profession. It is also my biggest hobby. Cycling, travelling, swimming and walking in nature are some of my other hobbies. I do not smoke and don't drink alcohol.

I like to offer you an authentic Bed and Breakfast experience, as it started a long time ago when people opened a spare bed room for visitors and offer them a local breakfast. And that is exactly what you can expect.
And it is my pleasure to tell you all about Amsterdam and the surrounding areas, so you will enjoy your stay to the max.

Location Erik's Bed and Breakfast

My house is located in the west part of Amsterdam. The area is called 'New West'. This is close to Amsterdam Airport, Haarlem and the beach (Zandvoort).

Amsterdam city centre is only 8 km from my house. Tram line 1 is just a few minutes walk and with up to 12 trams per hour you are within half an hour in the city centre. Line 1 brings you to all the main places of interest without having to change to an other line.
And if you come by car, there is plenty parking space in my street. For free!

The airport is half an hour by public transport or 15 minutes by taxi. Uber is available too.

What you should know...

I live here just by myself, and I only host one guest at a time, so the house stays quiet. I almost never go out at night. Normally I go to sleep around midnight. I only host people who also use the night to sleep and not to party. In other words, if you visit Amsterdam to party and use drugs, please find an other Bed and Breakfast. Thanks for your understanding.

As a freelance photographer my working hours and days are very flexible. My house is also my office, so often I will be able to check you in at a time that is convenient for you. We have to contact each other a few days before your arrival to confirm the check in time.

As mentioned before, I sleep at night. So no middle of the night check-ins or check-outs. This means that if your flight arrives after 21.00 h, I ask you to find an other host or hotel. Also if you want to check out before 7.00 h in the morning, please find an other place to sleep. Thanks for understanding.

Some more details about the Bed and Breakfast

guest roomThe guest room is available for you. This room was completely renovated in October 2016: walls, windows and ceilings painted, new floor coverings, new duvets and new linens.
In the room is a small desk so you can work on your laptop in private. High speed Wifi (100 Mbps!)

The house (build in 1998) is in a very quiet area. The perfect place to catch up some sleep. The neighbours are also very quiet. You don't have to be afraid to wake up in the middle of the night because of some drunk tourists climbing the stairs of the adjacent apartment.

We share the bathroom, that has a double sink, a toilet and double shower. A second toilet is located on the ground floor.

Breakfast is included

A fresh nutritious breakfast is included in your stay. It consists of freshly baked rolls, eggs, butter, cheese, ham, jam, Dutch chocolate sprinkles, yogurt, cereals, muesli, fruits, coffee, tea, milk, orange juice.


You can use the kitchen to make yourself coffee and tea. You can store stuff in the refrigerator and freezer. You can prepare a meal in the microwave if you wish. If you want to cook a full meal on the stove, please discuss with me in advance. Maybe we can cook together?

In summer you can also use the terrace to enjoy the sun.

Maximum stay = 5 days.
