+ “Ho alloggiato in questo B&B per la prima volta lo scorso weekend,dopo aver letto le recensioni su booking! La posizione è ottima,situato sul canale Singel a pochi passi dal centro (piazza Dam a 500m) e dal quartiere Jordaan (alla fine dei 4 canali) dove si trovano vari ristoranti! La proprietaria del Singel e' molto disponibile e gentile,ci ha consigliato vari posti dove far colazione/mangiare a pranzo e cena,e alcuni dei posti più interessanti da visitare !! Le camere sono pulite e ordinate con accesso gratuito alla Wi-Fi !! Rapporto qualità prezzo giusto,consiglio vivamente questo B&B!”

+ “The hosts are so gracious, we felt like we were staying with old friends. This location is convenient to everything; 10 minute walk to Central Station, 5 minute walk to tram line that connects you to narly all the city. There was nothing we needed that was not available. Without question we'd stay here again. Great value.”
- Steep, narrow, winding staircase to the loft.

suite (with private bath) which was two spacious rooms with a good sized closet in the bedroom and a beautiful view of a garden in the back and the Singel canal in the front. Accommodations were stylish and comfortable. Pepa and Esther were so helpful and welcoming. I would definitely stay there again. Very well located, just a few blocks from Amsterdam Centraal Station and close to the tram. Many cafes and shops close by.”

- The internet service was spotty. There is a very steep staircase up to the room but Esther carried our heavy luggage up and back for us. I would not recommend this room for anyone who has trouble with stairs.

Augusto, Rio de Janeiro (BR)

+ “O hotel é extremamente bem localizado para quem quer visitar os principais pontos turísticos. O ambiente é muito bem decorado, oferece privacidade e uma ótima noite de sono. Cama confortável, com tudo para que você se sinta aconchegado. Quarto espaçoso e agradável. Pode-se ir à pé para a estação de trem, inclusive com as malas. Só tem um lance de escada, o que é muito bom e raro em Amsterdam. Adoramos, indicamos e voltaremos neste hotel.”

Sylvie, Lorette (CA)

“Апартаменты хорошие. Расположение супер! Хозяева приятные.”

- Живут хозяева, иногда складывается впечатление, что приехал к кому-то в гости, тк все слышно (уединиться не получится).

Diego, Finale Ligure (SV) (IT)

+ “La posizione vicinissima alla stazione centrale e al centro città. La cortesia dei proprietari. Pur essendo in centro si dorme d'incanto, nessun rumore.”

- Bagno un po' piccolo...almeno per la patio room dove siamo stati.

Emily, Bude (GB)
Augustus 2014

“We loved this b&b! The location was close to the centre (which we visited but much prefered the authentic old streets of Joordan) in the most beautiful neighbourhood, full of cafés, galleries, canals and bicycles! We just wandered around the wonky streets eating, drinking, talking to the fabulous local people and buying the most amazing food and vintage finds at the markets! I couldn't recommend this location/art gallery setting highly enough. Esther was very friendly and gave us a few recommendations of places to explore! After seeing the other neighbourhoods of amsterdam -book this b&b, you will definitely not be disappointed! We will definitely be back!”

- Slight problem with the wifi one day, not as issue as it's nice to be without social media for a few days but we did want to look up some places to eat. We found some hidden gems instead though!

Mieke, SAN JOSE (US) Patio view room (Doubleroom)
Augustus 2014

+ “It was a great location. Minutes from the central station and close to downtown Amsterdam yet a nice quiet street. Esther, our host was great and being in a room right next to the singel canal was wonderful. We walked everywhere and there were great restaurants and cafe's all within walking distance. The patio room is up a very narrow steep wooden stair and a bit of a challenge to get your suitcase up but that is typical of the canal houses. The canal room is larger and has a wider less steep stair. It is 20 euros more per night. We were happy with our stay and would stay there again. The room was small but comfortable and there was coffee and tea and biscuits in a basket. It was our 40 year wedding anniversary and Esther had a bottle of wine and glasses in the room for us. Very sweet. I recommend B&B singel. ”

- Nothing. It was all good.

Brett, Leicester (GB)

Maryline, Neuchâtel (CH)
July 2014

+ “La gentillesse de Esther et grande artiste peintre ;-) sa disponibilité et sa générosité. Petit chambre certes, mais comme à Amsterdam nous vivons dehors cela n'a pas d'importance, la salle de bain est très bien, le lit super confortable, une graaaande armoire,des tableaux d'artiste partout j'adore. Elle est situé parfaitement, je vous la recommande, tout était parfait.”

“Pepa è una persona squisita, disponibile e amichevole. La posizione è perfetta sia riguardo la comodità per raggiungere in pochi minuti la stazione, sia perché il Singel è uno dei canali principali da cui è possibile raggiungere tutti i luoghi di interesse. La camera (patio room) èpulita, piccola ma raccolta e molto silenziosa. Consiglio a chiunque di soggiornare qui e, quando tornerò ad Amsterdam, alloggerò senz'altro in questo bel B&B! Pepa is a kind, helpful and friendly person! The location is great: near the station and perfect to visit Amsterdam! ThePatio Room is very nice, clear and silent. I'll be back!”


Kenneth, Cavan (CA)  -  Canal view room
April 2014

+ “Our host Pepa was wonderful. She was there to greet us and was very helpful throughout our stay with recommendations to restaurants, local area of interest and couldn't do enough to make sure we had everything we needed and more. What attracted us was the location which was walking distant from Central Station. Our room and amenities were superb. I would strongly recommend this B&B and would definitely book it for our next visit to Amsterdam. Carmelle & Frank”


Yves, Marcq en Baroeul (FR)   Canal view room
April 2014

+ “La situation centrale, l'accueil et l'amabilité de la propriétaire, la chambre vaste et belle, le plateau de courtoisie (café, thé dans la chambre) et le linge de toilette.”

- La vue décevante par rapport à la présentation sur : la vue de la chambre donne sur une cour sans charme, celle de l'antichambre donne effectivement sur le canal et surtout sur les dames dans les vitrines en face, dont nous nous serions passé. Les wc sont dans la salle de douche qui est petite, en contraste avec la chambre. Le prix (en basse saison) n'est pas bon marché mais probablement en rapport avec les prix pratiqués à Amsterdam.

"El Mejor B&B; DEL Mundo"

Viajamos un matrimonio con nuestra hija.
Sobre su propietaria yo sólo puedo decir que es una de las mujeres mas encantadoras del planeta. Pero mejor buscas en Google "españoles por el mundo amsterdam pepa" y que cada uno la valore. Sobre el B&B; ya he dado mi opinión. No me hace falta conocer todo los B&B; del mundo para opinar que es EL Mejor B&B; DEL Mundo. Dormir en una galeria rodeado de obras de arte, con vistas al Canal Singel, con 2 salas independientes:
1.- un dormitorio con cama de matrimonio, tv, maravilosos cuadros (incluido el de "woman with hat") y  baño privado.
Y con los consejos de Pepa (tan sólo comparables a los consejos de antonella en el B&B; GLI Scipioni de Roma), no tienen precio.
Y si te dejas aconsejar por Pepa y el desayuno lo haces en Hema (Kalverstraat nº 212) ya sabes que un café con leche, un curasan y un bocadillo de tortilla con beicon te va a costar un euro. Sí, no me he equivocado: ¡1 euro!.

No lo dudes, si vas a amsterdam B&B; Singel 100 es EL Mejor B&B; DEL Mundo.

Our host was very nice, gave us a lot of advices very helpful. The room was (we had the patio view room), as well described in the advertisement, small but cozy, and had all the necessary, in the bathroom there is even a "bidè" which is a rarity in Amsterdam! we didn't choose the breakfast option, but in the room there is a small fridge and all necessary for coffee and tea, so that was enough for us. The view on the patio surrounded by the roofs is very ..bohemian! it was very romantic and perfect for a couple. The area is quiet.”

We thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations you provided!  It was clean, attractive and very conveniently located near city centre, Dam square, and Jordan area.  It was better than we had hoped and your provision for our son worked out beautifully well. If we are ever blessed enough to return we will want to stay again with you.  Your recommendations for breakfast and lunch were wonderful also. Thank you so much for your gracious hospitality.! We are very grateful to you for everything and I would highly recommend you to others!

"A great place to stay - quiet location but near sights and trans"

A lovely quiet canal side apartment over an art gallery. I went with my 20 something son and found it to be a good base for waling tours and seeing the sights. It is a short walk from the central station and even closer to a useful tram stop.
The apartment was clean and bright.
Pepa is a fantastic hostess and provided a great breakfast!

Wij hebben enorm genoten van een boeiend programma in Amsterdam en vooral ook van B &B Singel 100. De Canal - view room kamer was super schoon, comfortabel, aangenaam ingericht en had een artistieke uitstraling door de werken van de kunstenaars van de galerie.

Wij zullen altijd herinnerd blijven aan de vriendelijke en warme gesprekken met de eigenares Pepa. Door dit alles hadden we het gevoel "thuis" te komen wanneer we in het B&B kwamen.

Hartelijk dank voor alle gastvrijheid; wanneer we in Amsterdam zijn zullen weer graag in Singel 100 verblijven. We hebben onze kinderen en vrienden B&B Singel 100 van harte aanbevolen.

Romantic, chic, unique, Singel 100 was exceptional beyond our imaginings. We were thrilled to arrive and stay in this perfect, cosy but modern chic apartment. It's in the heart of the city on a beautiful canal. We enjoyed the freedom as if it was our own place and the owners had left everything to make our stay wonderful. Including all teas/coffee, plenty of big fluffy towels, a laptop for internet, a library of books, the most delicious bed etc. Also worth noting that Singel has a super gallery space with great art we loved to ponder in the privacy of our own time. I wholeheartedly recommend!

We felt at home right away. And the bed and linens were so comfortable, we slept like happy babies!
Also your kind help and advice were very much appreciated. It was Stefan's first time in Amsterdam and he completely fell in love with it!
We had a lovely time and very good food as well - both your recommendations were a hit!

I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the loft.  The sitting area overlooking the art gallery and the canal was spacious and very comfortable.  The desk was an extra luxury.The bedroom was very large.  The bed was extremely comfortable.  The bathroom was small but very adequate. The beverage center was an added benefit. The location is one of the best in old Amsterdam.  Just a few minutes walk and you are at Central Station and also many of the attractions like the 9 shopping streets, trams, etc.  Fabulous location!
Thank you for allowing us to stay in your place!  We will return!

Amsterdam è una bellissima città da vivere e lo è ancor di più avendo come base il B&B Singel 100. La camera in cui siamo stati è comodissima e dispone di tutti i comfort, tranquillissima ed in pieno centro città. A due passi da quasi ogni centro di interesse: facilissimo raggiungere il centro e, una passeggiata di 20 minuti porta dal centro alla zona dei musei.
Molto comodo anche per fare splendide passeggiate la sera lungo i canali della citura occidentale e meridionale o raggiungere il quartiere di Jordaans in pochi passi dove abbiamo approfittato della quantità innumervole di simpatici caffè e ristoranti di ogni tipo.
Insomma un soggiorno gradevolissimo cui ha contribuito la gentilezza di Pepa, un ospite eccezionale con cui si può anche parlare castellano.

Quando trovi un posto speciale 'per caso' la sorpresa è ancora più gradita! Abitare, seppur per pochi giorni, in una tipica casa olandese sul canale (oltre tutto  in una zona bella e comoda) è una esperienza indimenticabile. Ancor  di più se si tratta di una galleria d'arte gestita da una affascinante signora spagnola con un ottimo gusto. La stanza "the patio view room" alla quale si accede con un romantico percorso tra quadri d'autore, seppur piccina, è calda e accogliente oltre ad essere dotata di ogni confort. Per non parlare dei bellissimi quadri appesi che vien voglia di comparare. Che siamo sentiti a casa nostra e speriamo di tornarci presto. Grazie Pepa per la tua calda ospitalità.

I was so happy at the first sight I saw the lovely and elegant room, since I love art so much, to live in the gallery and surrounded by so many beautiful paintings is just like a dream comes true for me, plus the famous canal view of Amsterdam, your place is really a dream house for me:) And I also love the neighborhood nearby, so peaceful and quiet although the location of the B&B is just few minutes away from the central station. Also love the coffee and tea that you prepared. It's really sweet. The best of all, is the big smile you always gave us, make me feels like seeing a lovely friend. So thank you for everything and I already decided  that I will stay in  your place again next time a visit Amsterdam! And one more thing, my mom asked me to tell you, next time if you come to Taiwan, please contact us  and we can show you our country :)

Singel100 (Canal Suite) is like living in your own apartment in Amsterdam, with all the necessary amenities; spacious room, comfortable bed, private bath, own patio, tea & coffee making facilities, free wifi, guidebooks and above all: privacy! The area is surprisingly peaceful for its central location, and the nearby cafés provide excellent breakfast. As the apartment balcony opens into the gallery space, art visitors can be heard into the room during day time. However, this didn't bother us, even though there was an exhibition opening with a full house during our stay. The interesting art work, the great canal view and the hospitality of wonderful Pepa makes all the difference between staying at Singel100 and a boring hotel.


Jens & Inger - Denmark
April 2013

The 2 previous times in Amsterdam, I have stayed at B & B. This time we chose B&B Singel100. It turned out to be a really good choice. The "opportunity" is on top of a gallery, so that from a landing there is direct access to the sight of art and a large window to the Singel canal.

In  the bedroom, there is a bathroom and a small walk-in wardrobe with coffee maker, kettle and fridge. From the bedroom you see through the window onto a patio. Everything is just so thoroughly delicious.

The owner of the gallery: Pepa Santolaria is wonderful. We felt like we knew each other completely, as we passed through a half years lively correpondance. It stood at big smiles, hugs and kisses when we finally met her.

Highly recommended, but you have to live with the visitors to see art, while otherwise extremely quiet while you live right in the city center and even overlooking some red lights .

We hebben het heerlijk gehad in de kamer, midden in het centrum een gezellig en rustig eigen hoekje, het kantoortje met zithoek voor  met  zicht op de gracht  geeft een gevoel van ruimte.
Een aanrader: heel wat anders dan een saaie hotel kamer, en wél voorzien van alle comfort!

have enjoyed the room very much, right in the center of Amsterdam, a cozy and quiet private corner,
the seating area overlooking the canal gives a feeling of openness.
Highly recommended:
quite different from a boring hotel room, and it is equipped with all comfort!

We loved staying  at Singel 100 – not only is the location brilliant, but the room is very comfortable and so stylishly furnished too. The location above the gallery with the mezzanine area and the bedroom at the rear is ideal – a quiet bedroom, but with the sitting area having the canal view (we are only sorry that we did not have sufficient time to enjoy that view!) And of course you (Pepa) are the most welcoming and charming host! We will certainly recommend Singel 100 to others, and we look forward to staying with you again.

We loved our two-nights stay at Singel 100 so much! The room is very comfortable and beautifully decorated and furnished. We have been amazed at this very quiet place in the city center, next to everything you may visit in Amsterdam. The location is really perfect, and you can enjoy the canal view while having a look at the gallery also. Pepa, her smile and soft nature, is an adorable host who makes you feel at home in one second! Thank you Pepa! We highly recommend you place for a great stay in Amsterdam. :-)

We highly recommend this fabulous B&B for a perfect stay in Amsterdam. You will be warmly welcomed by your delightful host Pepa from the moment you make your booking, and you will feel immediately at home when you arrive. The Singel100 is bright, spacious, comfortable, and typically artistic for Amsterdam, you will not be disappointed. After a day visiting the city, relax and enjoy the open view from the sitting area, or take a quiet moment on the cute outdoor terrace. Situated in a perfect location, overlooking the beautiful Singel canal, you will find a vast selection of restaurants, cafe and shopping options. Within short walking distance to the city centre, station and trams, you can experience a taste of life as a local. Our only wish was that we could stay longer! We look forward to returning to Amsterdam, and will not hesitate to stay again at Singel100.

Nous avons séjourné au « Singel 100 » durant 2 nuits du mois de Septembre 2012. Notre séjour chez Mrs Pepa était très agréable. La chambre était propre, silencieuse et surtout très design (décorée par des peintures contemporaines). Mrs Pepa nous a impressionnés par sa sympathie, son sourire et sa gentillesse. L’emplacement de la chambre est idéal du fait de son proximité de la gare centrale d’Amsterdam et des quartiers de shopping et des musées.
Merci encore PEPA pour ton chaleureux accueil et à bientôt.

Singel 100 is the perfect place to stay at if you are looking for a central but quiet location. The room is spacious and comfortable. It was decorated with a lot of thought. Pepa is a lovely and helpful host. I especially appreciated an email she sent me a couple of days before my arrival suggesting different locations such as bistros and other places to eat out.

We really enjoyed our stay in B&B Singel 100 and only can recommend it as a great "insiders' tip"! The room is lovely arranged and furnished with a lot of art and literature on a mezzanine area above Pepa’s gallery and has a beautiful view on the Singel and backwards to a cosy little roofgarden. The room has a nice little bathroom, an extra wardrobe with coffee machine, water boiler, teas and biscuits and furthermore offers internet connection. For Laura, we got a cosy little bed and even towels and baby care products. Singel 100 is in the middle of one of the prettiest canals in Amsterdam. It is both quiet and central, so that you can explore the city easily by feet. But above all Pepa ist the most pleasant host, we could expect. Her warm and friendly personality and her great fondness for children has made us feel at home immediately. And we could trust her breakfast- and restaurant-tips blindly! It surely was not the last visit for us. Thank you!

Staying at Singel 100 B&B has certainly contributed to the success of our journey. We felt like belonging to the city itself, pushing the door to ‘our own home’ made us feel like locals. We’ve been warmly welcomed by Pepa who has always been of good advice and charming. Not only the room is to me atypical with its mezzanine ‘living room’ above the art gallery and through it the view on the canal, its comfy bedroom but we’ve been delighted to take breakfast on the roof patio reachable from the back of the room. We’ve also appreciated the ‘coffee corner’ in the room. Looking forward to visiting again Amsterdam and Singel 100 B&B!
