About Chris & Clarita

Chris is after his retirement still working as an actor and musician, Clarita, a former dancer, works already for more than 25 years as a yoga teacher and personal trainer in her own studio in the Jordaan. They have 2 adult daughters.

Chris & Clarita purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Chris & Clarita chose Amsterdam

On a beautiful canal in a non touristy area, restaurants of all types within walking distance, 4 minutes to Anne Franke home, a wonderful host, what else can I say? How about this- Chris offered to ride with us to return our rental car since it was quite complicated to find the exact location near Central station- WOW! Or...since he had no ice, he came down and we drank his home supply of Jenever with him, in his family antique glasses! What a guy! Thanks Chris & Clarita.

Oh, and the two rooms and kitchenette are just perfect, he stocks it nicely, we enjoyed making our coffee and partaking fresh rolls etc, even an egg cooker and eggs!

The price is too good to be true!

Great Rental Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this rental for two nights with our three children. They moved an extra bed into one of the bedrooms for our third child and that worked out very well. The location is excellent, just a few minutes to walk to Anne Frank's House. Laura was waiting for us when we checked in and was very nice. The rental was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked for breakfast. My little daughter loved the egg cooker and had eggs every day! If you are looking for a well located rental where you can walk to everything then this is the place!

perfect location, perfect host

  • 5 of 5

We just spent four glorious days at Chris & Clarita's B & B. We were there with two friends and the location as well as the rooms were terrific. Spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equipped, it was great for the four of us. Chris had provided all we could want for a nice breakfast. Two bikes were available for our use for those brave enough to take on the streets of Amsterdam. I'm sure we would all very much recommend Bloembed for anyone who wants to live, even, temporarily, like a Amsterdam native. We can't wait to go back!

The perfect place

  • 5 of 5

I recently returned from Amsterdam where my husband, myself, and another couple had the pleasure of staying at B&B Bloembed. Chris and Clarita were perfect hosts, recommending local restaurants which proved to be wonderful. The location of the B&B was ideal, in the beautiful Jordaan area. We could walk everywhere, and the neighborhood shops and restaurants were convenient and inviting. We felt part of the vibrant neighborhood. The accommodations were clean, comfortable and spacious. We all would heartily recommend this wonderful place to stay.

great accomodations in Amsterdam!

  • 5 of 5

Chris and Clarita's B&B was a great place to stay in Amsterdam.They were very hospitable to our every need. The B&B is situated in a great neighborhood. A 2 minute walk to Anne Franks house. We rented both bedrooms. The beds were very comfortable. We felt right at home. Close to many good resturants and bars. We totally enjoyed our stay. Amsterdam is a must stop on anyone's European adventure!!

Wonderful Time in a GREAT Location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time staying at this B&B. The owners are very gracious and took the time to talk with us. The location is close enough to the action but far away enough from any craziness at night. The food items provided were excellent and had a Dutch charm. As the B&B itself goes, cleanliness, size of the rooms, comfort of the beds, availabitly of crib, and climate control were all above expectations. The owner is nearby for quick questions and requests. My family of 5 and the related luggage all fit nicely with room to work around. Towels were freshened regularly too. Ask the owner about airport transfers, as his person and price beats the standard rates found at the airport or train station.

perfect location, your own canal!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed 3 nights here and I could not have hoped for a better location and set up. We used both of the bedrooms and had the apartment to ourselves so I cant speak to what it would be like to share the space with other travelers. That being said, we found the space to be very cozy and well organized. Bathrooms were very clean and modern. All our breakfast needs were restocked every day while we were out touring around. Owners were away but had their daughter looking in on us each evening. She was lovely and helped with restaurant choices and reservations.

The apartment sits across a narrow one lane street from a small canal and we spent every evening out on a little bench watching people cycling by and cruising little boats through the canal. Really magical! The street is very quiet at night. The location of the flat is so perfect for walking to all the other canals and areas of interest. We were so happy with our choice. I would go back in a second!!
