Steve Malenka purchased this Bed And Breakfast in 1983
What makes this Bed And Breakfast unique
My home with 2 self service apartments is in Amsterdam center & I could bike or walk or TRAM or Train to my work or my pleasure my entire life. Its located on the Sunny side of the Street & so when the Sun shines & is high in the sky from March - October this property SHINES too.! One of the biggest plus points is that its in the Center of busy happening Amsterdam BUT it still is QUIET....once inside the world is left outside far behind you!!

Thanks so much, Steve
This apartment proved to be an ideal home for 2 seniors as we spent 3 days and nights exploring Amsterdam.
Location-wise, in the centre of the Nine Streets, every thing you could need in the way of groceries, wine and beer, cafes, restaurants, and more was very close at hand. A few more distant attractions may have required public transit, but so many important sites were just an easy walk from the apartment. Also, we found it to be very straight-forward to take a bus from the airport. Steve emailed very specific directions explaining how to get to the apartment from Schiphol.
The apartment was extremely comfortable, and very well equipped. We used the kitchen to prep breakfast and for snacks, preferring to explore the area’s restaurants for dinner. Also, spotlessly clean, with abundant towels, etc.
It was a pleasure to communicate with and eventually meet with Steve. He took care to answer our questions right away, and was very helpful in giving advice about getting around in the city. In summary, this apartment is an excellent home base from which to explore Amsterdam.
Jeff - thanks so much!
Keep very Well— & out of harm’s way
See you again!
We work on that!!!
Coronavirus Forced Our Cancellation But Steve Was Most Accommodating
The Coronavirus forced us to cancel. We were able to easily and quickly work out an arrangement with Steve that will let us use the apartment at some time in the future when the virus is a distant memory. Steve was very responsive; answered emails very promptly. *I gave it 5 stars in anticipation of our future visit.
Comfort, convenient and unique apartment
Steve’s flat in Amsterdam 9 Streets area is absolutely wonderful! So tastefully decorated with comfy furniture and personal touches - you will feel right at home. Lovely sitting room up front with plenty of seating and room to stretch out if you want to catch up on your reading or take a nap. There’s a sizable lending library and a very nice television with lots of cable channels to choose from- many in English as well. Kitchen has all you’ll need to dress up your take aways or even prepare a light meal. The bed is super comfortable and bedroom is very quiet at night as it’s set at the back of the house - a real plus. There’s loads of fascinating shops and world class museums within short walk and a variety of tram stops nearby as well. Amsterdam is so easy to navigate and it’s such a treat to be in the middle of it all. Staying at Steve’s made my first visit to Amsterdam a true delight!
Thanks Marcia, I always like to read when a guest is aware of the personal touches in the apartment & appreciates them & the convenience of the locatio as well as apartment.
Enjoy the rest of your holiday's and have a prosperous rest of 2020!
Comfortable and central
The apartment was close to everything and on a very nice street. The bed was very comfortable, internet worked well, the living room was beautiful. It was also very quiet. Steve was very helpful. You can’t go wrong in renting this place!

Happy to hear & read that you enjoyed your stay.

Great place all around!
We really loved this apartment! From the first interaction with Steve and when we said goodbye, we felt so well taken care of. The apartment is in the perfect spot, easy to walk to literally everything! The street it’s on has shopping and cafes and restaurants nearby. Steve was wonderful with recommendations! The apartment is up only one flight stairs (which is a really good thing in Amsterdam) and the bedroom was huge and bed was super comfortable. The living room area was a nice place to relax and read or watch tv at the end of a busy day. We would totally stay there again! Steve really thinks of everything to help your stay be even better, thanks again!!!

Have a great rest of 2020 & beyond!
