About Theo

After my retirement as a TV-director and a documentary-maker for Dutch television I am happy to welcome travellers in our quiet guest house BB10 Amsterdam, to offer lodgings and to provide all kinds of information on where to dine, drink or club, on what to see and to visit, and, in general or very specific, on the rich history of Amsterdam or its surprising surroundings. As I have travelled the world professionally for many years, I know exactly what is needed and appreciated by weary travelers in a strange city. Comfort.

We'll provide.

Theo & my wife Beanke

Theo purchased this guest house in 1980

Why Theo chose Amsterdam

Just outside the tourist centre and its' bustle, in a green, quiet, safe residential area (no thru-traffic) next to the subwaystation, so only minutes away from the center * Shops, supermarket (08-22hrs), ATM around the corner. Restaurants, coffeehouses and terraces along the riverbank * And five very fine restaurants in the near vicinity: De Ysbreeker, Le Hollandais, Baut, Trouw and Rijsel * A brisk walk or a short ride brings you to the historical center in minutes, its' canals, its' museums, its' parks, its' markets, its China Town, its Quartier Latin * Parking a car in our street is easy and safe, but very expensive. As it is in all Amsterdam upto 6,00 euro per hour ! The best deal is to park your car in the P+R parking facility Bijlmer ArenA (at 8,00 euro/ 24 hours + free metro tickets) and board the metro/subway to WIBAUTSTRAAT, virtually at our doorstep.

What makes this guest house unique

* Ground floor * Private entrance * Own keys * Easy access * Also for elderly, handicapped, * LHBT welcome * Small pets welcome, after approval (and with a deposit) * Calm, secure, comfortable, warm, well-equipped

Quiet and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Theo is a great host!   Very welcoming!   Clean, quiet place to stay.   There were books, menus, map, a book of how to get the most out of your stay.   He walked us through the common areas and our room explaining everything. He made us coffee when we came in.   Wine, soda were available.  Stroopwafels were provided to have with morning coffee.  Little notes and signs everywhere .   Beautiful garden out back to enjoy if you have leisure time.  Not far from the Metro. Definitely will be the first place I will look for accommodations the next time I am in Amsterdam.

Very cosy and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Very nice accomodation. The house is in a quiet area, with the Amstel river 1 min away and the subway station 3 min away. Hosts are more than helpful (giving you tips and tricks not only for Amsterdam, but also for Holland if you want to visit like we did). The room is spacious, also with a radio (during our stay it was setted on a nice fm station with jazz music and I loved this). The living room was also at our disposal together with the beautiful garden. We want to thank again to Mr Theo and his wife for their hospitality and don't forget: let me know if you come back to Romania! Best wishes, Georgiana Vlad

You can easily go, walking or biking, to the points to visit. The district is quiet and calm. The owner will give you his advices concerning differents interesting places to visit and his suggestions about restaurants. We highly recommand this peaceful room, especially for lovers discovering Amsterdam."

J'ai passé 2 nuits chez Theo dans une endroit très calme à 3 stations de metro du centre ville avec une station de métro à 3mn (à pied). De plus Theo est un personne charmante parlant le français et l'anglais. La chambre est spacieuse et luxueuse. Je recommande vivement ce B&B à tout cuple qui veut passer un moment sympa à Amsterdam.
