Arrantea Guest House B&B Amsterdam Reviews
Away from the hustle & bustle Apr 21, 2008
Arrantea Guest House is situated in Noord Amsterdam away from the 'hustle & bustle' of the city centre. Taking a train from Schiphol Airport to Central Station, around the back you will find small ferries which go across to the Noord. The owners will pick you up from the ferry drop-off and drive you to the guest house. From here it is a ten minute walk around to the local supermarket where you can catch the bus into the city centre.
A small, thatched cottage, Arrantea is a family-run bed & breakfast that is unsuitable for those with mobility difficulties. The rooms are up a steep staircase, and care needs to be taken when coming back down - you can easily fall.
The bedrooms are very basic with tea & coffee making facilities and a small tv. With only tiny en-suite bathrooms, it really is a place to stay if you just want somewhere to sleep.
Breakfast is brought to your room in a couple of boxes, and consists of a continental selection of breads, preserves, meats and cheese - perfect if you want to make a picnic to take out!
Despite the basic facilities, Arrantea is a lovely cottage in a quiet suburban area of Noord Amsterdam, and the family are only too happy to help give you directions and information on places to visit.
