We stayed at La Vie en Rose for two nights at the end of July. We had the second floor apartment, which we had requested and it was ideal for us. The apartment is beautifully decorated, has everything you need to make your stay comfortable and even a fully equipped kitchen if you need it. We didn't use it but it was nice to know it was there if required. The apartments are in a good location for us, we've been to Amsterdam so many times and much prefer to stay around that area. There are loads of little bars, cafes and restaurants around if you dont want to walk down to Dam Square. i would highly recommend the apartments if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of a big hotel. They are very stylish and the beds are exceptionally comfortable. The only downside is the stairs, but if you are relatively young and fit it shouldn't be a problem. Thank you Christa and Yvon, we loved it.

We stayed in the studio apartment a couple of weeks ago, during the recent heatwave, and absolutely loved it. It had everything we needed - a great location, very comfortable, and the very nice touches of toiletries, tea and coffee being provided, which we didn't expect. I can't fault the owners; they could not have been more helpful. Great recommendations for places to eat nearby. Yes, the stairs up to the apartment are very narrow and steep, but it's Amsterdam, and it all adds to the charm! I would certainly stay here again.
"Beware in hot weather"

Not really a B&B as breakfast is not offered, this apartment is right in the heart of the tourist area near the Dam. It has a nice living area with kitchenette and a good shower/toilet but the tiniest bedroom just 18 inches wider than the bed. Suitcases must remain in the living area and even there the owners have goods in most cupboards. In typical Amsterdam fashion there is no AC and we experienced unusually warm weather - the apartment was unbearable during the day, and still hot at night. Opening the windows meant street noise until after 3am. Although the owners live upstairs they would not allow us to leave our bags upon arrival by morning flight until the apartment was available, but we found the cafe across the road very helpful - similarly for catching a taxi upon departure. Yvon was very informative with a 'map' of nearby eateries, but quite unhelpful after the first night when we told her that we found the bottom sheet rough and hot and asked her for a cotton sheet. I dont think i have sensitive skin and have never before complained about linen in 40 years of travel. She said there was no alternative, but when I said I would purchase a cotton sheet myself she managed to find one for us. My suggestion would be stay a little further out where it's quieter and use the excellent tram system or walk. If you wish a living room, the apartment would be nicer in cold weather!
"Great property and location"

Spent 6 nights at this lovely little apartment. Owners lovely - gave us a hand drawn map with lots of recommendations for restaurants & things to see. Carried our bags up and down the stairs for us which was great! Perfect location in the heart of Amsterdam with supermarket close by.

"Beautiful apartments, wonderful people!"

There are two apartments, one above the other, and the owners live on the top floor, which made it a perfect place to stay as you have the independence of your own place with the help and security of the of the owners being on site. Christa and Yvon gave us a wonderful welcome, friendly and informative and always available for more information and communication by text. They provide up to date maps and leaflets and have gone to the trouble of drawing their own diagram of the area with recommendations which they update regularly. The apartments are both beautiful: or friends might write a review of theirs, which was on the first floor. We were on the second floor in the one described as a studio, though in reality, you do feel as though you have a separate bedroom as it is a completely separate area from the wonderful, light-filled living room. (See photo) The whole place is immaculate and so very comfortable: we felt at home in the city straight away. There are beautiful original art-works on the walls, fresh flowers, healthy and well-loved plants. I loved the antique chest at the foot of the bed, and the wardrobe was also a lovely antique piece. (This is really not a place for children - I am puzzled why anyone would think this was a good place to stay with a small baby!) The beds were sooo comfortable with pristine white cotton bedlinen and lovely comfy pillows. The seating area has great big picture windows which open in two ways, allowing a lovely breeze to waft through the apartment, and the double-glazing is astonishingly effective, enabling us to have a well-earned siesta above the busy streets. You really are perfectly-placed here: only 5 minutes walk or a short tram-ride from the station, near to Dam Square and yet only two minutes walk from the beautiful canals and in easy access of the nine streets. There are really excellent restaurants in easy walking distance, and plenty of shops to pick up your Prosecco! The kitchenette is equipped with a great coffee machine and the owners even supply plenty of coffee and tea of top-quality. The bathroom is great too, with a wonderful big walk-in shower and a counter-top basin which I now want to buy for my own bathroom! All-in-all, a perfect stay in this fantastic city.
"Enjoy the heart of Amsterdam"

We stayed three nights and it was a Great place to stay. Located in the heart of the city. Close to Dam Square and Royal Palace. Great market close by for groceries. Wonderful people who will make your trip special.
"Excellent location, great apartment!"
We stayed here for 4 nights and after reading the other reviews we had high expectations and were not disappointed at all. This is a great apartment in the heart of the city, walking distance from Dam Square and Centraal station with a tram stop just outside. We were impressed by the size and layout. Great living area overlooking one of the main streets. Christa was great and gave us a lot of local information about the old part of amsterdam which was very helpful and also helped with other requests. We would always stay here when visiting Amsterdam.

Spent a night with my girlfriend at this gorgeous B&B. The apartment is amazing, tastefully decorated and very clean. The beds are super comfortable and the owners are so friendly and available to help you with any question you might have. I highly recommended it as the location is also fantastic, everything is close by and easy to reach. Thank you Chris and Yvon, for a wonderful stay!
