any one recommend a b&b in Amsterdam

We are travelling to Amsterdam in March and need a recommendation on place to stay. We are a family of 4. Also will be driving there from France so should we drop car on the outskirts and take transport in or is it fairly easy to get around. Any help would be appriciated

I'm sorry I cannot help you with specific recommendations other than driving and especially parking in Amsterdam would probably be major issues.

Try www.channels.nl for accommodations recommendations.

Since you are driving you have choices in other cities with easier and cheaper parking. The B&B Paula http://tinyurl.com/hhdc4 on the west side of Haarlem is nice.

We stayed here a few years ago. I can't speak highly enough about this B&B and the owners.

They served us breakfast every morning full of ideas and advice or whatever we needed for our plans for that day.

The food was unique and superb. Their company was fabulous and I feel like we made friends. We can't wait to go back.

We stayed at Maes B&B in November and liked it, and the area (western canal rings/Jordaan) very much. Others have also recommended it here. I wouldn't want a car in that area, though--and no real need for one.

I highly recommend Maes B&B. Many Fodorites have stayed there as well, and it's gotten excellent reviews.

This is from my trip report:
---------------
"Maes B&B-I can't say enough good things about it. Great location straddling the Old Center and the Jordaan, a lovely hip area with lots of small shops. Ken and Vlad are wonderful hosts and made us feel as if we were staying in a home away from home. They will do whatever they can do make you feel comfortable. They have two separate buildings a few doors apart housing Maes and the Heren B&Bs. A computer is housed in Heren, so there is a key available 24/7 to access it whenever one wants. Breakfast is a large affair, with breads, cakes, cheeses and spreads, fruit and yogurts, and I believe that Vlad would feel greatly insulted if one left his table less than full. Vlad was like my Russian grandmother (Eat, eat...) but with a great sense of humor. Ken is a counterbalance to Vlad's dramatic, emotive style, but no less warm and welcoming.

Maes is not for everyone. They do not lock doors. Also, know that B&Bs in general do not change towels or sheets unless you request it. We had a comforter without a top sheet, but with the increasing heat of July, we asked for and received sheets. We had a fan in the room, and despite the heat, we had no difficulties sleeping."

By the way, I was having problems viewing the website, so hopefully, it's either MY server or a temporary glitch.

Here's the link to the B&B we're staying at in April. It has wonderful TripAdvisor reviews.
