We look forward to welcoming you as a guest at this beautiful historic building where you can savour the atmosphere of Amsterdam and experience local life.
Staying in this superbly renovated 19th century building just outside the central canal system means staying in a top location in Amsterdam. The building, which has recently been listed in order to preserve its unique character for the city, is at walking distance from the Vondelpark, Leidseplein, Museumplein and Amsterdam city centre.
Our B&B contains two spacious double rooms with high, authentically-decorated ceilings and comfortable beds. In addition, one of the rooms has folding doors leading onto a wonderful spacious terrace. The rooms share a luxurious bathroom with separate shower and bath. There are two separate toilets. The double beds consist of two separate single box spring mattresses which can easily be pushed together.
Each room includes a refrigerator, coffee and tea-making facilities and free Wi-Fi. All rooms are lockable with a unique key; you get a separate key for the front door.
We're in the heart of the friendly Old West district of Amsterdam, which has coffee shops, trendy restaurants, cosy lunchrooms and gastro cafés on every corner. The Vondelpark, a mere three minutes' walk away, offers a number of pleasant eateries. As such, we do not offer a breakfast service. There is no better way to get to know Amsterdam than by breakfasting among Amsterdammers!
There is no reception at the Inn. For this reason, please notify us of your arrival time at least 24 hours in advance so that we can welcome you in person.

From Utrecht, take the A2 towards Amsterdam. When you reach Amsterdam, follow the Ring A10-Zuid orbital motorway towards Den Haag.

At the traffic lights, turn right. Continue straight ahead for three sets of lights (straight across Surinameplein) and then cross the bridge. After this bridge, you can no longer go straight ahead so instead turn left onto Overtoom. At the third set of lights (some of which may not be operational), turn left. This is Tweede Constantijn Huygensstraat. Take the first turning on the right onto Eerste Helmersstraat. After 100 metres, you will find Helmers-Inn at number 69 on your right-hand side.
