Blaine's Bed and Breakfast

A B&B and more....

Our Location

Blaine's B&B is located at the Schinkel Canal, a 1930's quiet residential neighborhood in the southern section of Amsterdam, adjacent to the old canal area. 

When the B&B started in 2001 one of the many questions asked was ... "How far away are you from he City Center?" and while the city center has not changed, more and more tourist have come adding to the supply of hotels in the outside areas of Amsterdam.

Once here you realize that the commute in this city and the areas around the center are easily traversed by foot, bike, or tram.....and for those late nights Taxis are abundant.

The B&B is like mentioned above....a quiet residential area, allowing you a good rest after time in the busy city..after all that is what vacations are also about..relaxing.

Directions from Schiphol Airport

  • Proceed out the airport and get into one of the official taxi's located outside.  Do not accept a ride from people offering you rides within the airport terminal.  The rates are between 28 - 35 euro's.  This is the fastest and easiest way to reach the B&B. (about 10 minutes door-to-door).  While this might seem high it's quick and for 3 or more can be about the same cost.
