We just returned home to Vancouver, BC having concluded a wonderful 4 weeks in Europe that included a 15 day Baltic cruise which ended in Amsterdam. Our last 5 days were spent at Bibies, our second stay with her. I have read with a sense of disappointment the review dated June 16/12 by guests we shared two nights with at Bibies. These good folks are guilty of not having done their homework.

If one expects a sit down breakfast served to you at a set time, your bed made up while you are out, and isolation from other travellers, this is not the B&B for you. It never was. Bibies is a relaxed, friendly, clean, quiet at night, and safe lodging for do-it-yourselfers, and which is run by a lady with a heart of gold. It remains good value for what it offers. And yes you share a bathroom, a shower, and a kitchenette. That is part of its charm.

There was no evidence of mice (which are ubiquitous in Amsterdam), my I-pad ran perfectly on the high speed wifi provided, and there were no offensive odors (unless I made them). Yes guests leave unused items in the fridge. I left a couple of beers. Better to "pay it forward" than to waste/discard such items.

Bibies offers a great location from which to explore central Amsterdam. It sits among dozens of restaurants and shops that beg to be enjoyed. You get a true feel for what it must be like to live there. It is a mis-service to report a "terrible experience" when that is wholly due to unmet expectations that were not created by the lodging. I would stay at Bibies again.

Room Tip: always check the website to make sure you know you are going to be sharing facilities.

We are international couple. We are bohemian, love travelling, fine dining, wines and art.
Our stay in Amsterdam was once again gorgeous! We have been to bibies BB 2 times and it is always so nice, cozy, romantic. The apartment and our room were bright and quite, clean and prepared with love. Isn't it the most important thing? Not posh, but lovely!
The location is great for all kind of activities, for all kind of people. Great neighborhood with nice cafe's and restaurants around.
We had all we need there for a wonderful vacation. We felt like home. Not only because of the place itself but also because of the owner. Awesome person, who gave us good tips for side seeings, local activities, etc. She was always so friendly and helpful! She put so much energy and love to make us feel good!
The food was fresh and all that we need. The kitchen was clean and fully equipped.
Highly, highly recommended!!!!!

Thanks Bibi,

we appreciate! We coming back ::)

The two rooms have a perfect size. Bibi provides you with everything you need (from the hairdryer to the breakfast). It is a perfect place which can be reached with two metro lines (5 minutes) and by food from the city center (20min). Moreover the district de Pijp is full of trendy restaurants and bars which I recommend.

The most dirty place that i have been in my life. It ruined my first 3 days in Amsterdam until we moved out from there. How can I start? This woman welcome us with a dirty room, she just changed the cover sheets in front of us, that's all! gave us 2 little towels. She didn't mention that we would share the shower and toilet (which smells like hell, since no one cleaning there) with another 3 girls in the other room, no shampoo or soap at all, and of course we almost had to beg for toilet paper.. with some nerves she dared to say that we could find "the breakfast" in the little cooler she had in the kitchen "self-service" and the bread in the microwave because of "the mice", of course "the breakfast" is shared too like roomates with strangers, "the breakfast" consisted in all leftovers from the other people before us, a bag of ham, a half piece of kraft cheese, 4 eggs anyone wanted to cook, and a butter with bread crumbs and finger marks, what a joke! aah the internet offered is from the 80's slow grianding experience that make you beg for wireless. The only positive is the location, that's it! This should be in the category of Hostels! this is not close to a Bed and Breakfast whatsover!

I have been to bibies BB now 3 times. One time we stayed in the same room, the other time is a little smaller room, but still very decent.
The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. The area we just love. We think its the most lively area in Amsterdam, between dozens of restaurants and many musea.
Highly recommended.
