About Fleur van Heek

About ten years ago, we decided we where ready to receive travelers from all over the world in our home. We had made a beautiful guest room with a great bathroom and experienced great fun with family relatives and friends of friends. More and more people found the way to our house. And we really really enjoyed showing people around in Amsterdam. Some would like to see museums, some more the nightlife. So many people so many wishes. We where there to for fill them. What a enormous joy did that give. So one morning I woke up and decided to make it my profession. So that's when Fleur d' Amsterdam started. And we never ever regretted that! What a opportunity to meet new people and enjoy each others stories. Since then we have had the opportunity to meet new friends. And so we did!

Fleur van Heek purchased this house in 2010

Why Fleur van Heek chose Watergraafsmeer

This location is just outside the busy noisy city centre of Amsterdam. We do have the café 's, bars and good restaurants. But we don't have the drunk,loud and crazy tourists that scum the inner city of Amsterdam day and night. So nice clean air, peaceful nights and a green oasis just outside your doorstep. 10 minutes with the bike ( rental around the corner) or the tram, and you are back downtown.That's why we think we own the best place in Amsterdam, and numerous have told us just that!!! ( see the reviews!)

What makes this house unique

I live in this city of Amsterdam now for almost 30 years, and each day while biking through this city, I feel the blessing of living in one of the most inspiring Cities of the World! Me, a girl from the countryside, feel like a bee in the honeypot every day! Come and stay with us, and I'll tell you all about our experiences and everything we have learned from our guests!!Our neighborhood is one of the most wanted in Amsterdam, with the local shops cafe's , well known restaurants, upscale and easy going, there is always something of your choice. We love to help you in every way we can to make this precious holiday, the best ever!

Great B&B, even better host!

  • 5 of 5

The room and bathroom at Fleur's were very comfortable and even had some snacks and drinks included. The lodging was nice and the location made me feel almost like a local. Easy to reach by tram from almost anywhere (consider buying a pass).

The reason my stay was so great, however, was Fleur. Fleur is an amazing host who clearly loves her city and cooks a delicious breakfast! She made great recommendations for things to do, places to eat, and how to get around. Even provided an umbrella, which I definitely used! Very responsive even before my stay, Fleur feels like a friend you didn't know you had. I would absolutely stay here again and hope to do exactly that next time I make it to Amsterdam.

Owner's Response: Dear Sheila, thank you so much for your nice and kind words. It was great having you here, and I loved how you enjoyed Amsterdam not only as a wonderful city, but also as a way of life. Something I always try to get across with my guests. You picked it up as if you had been living here already for years! Hope that you enjoyed Berlin as much as you did enjoy Amsterdam. Hope to see you back one day, for a longer stay! Fleur d'Amsterdam

Wonderful host, charming home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience for our two night vacation stay. Fleur was very accommodating with our early arrival and late departure. She was so helpful in suggesting how and what to see and mapping places to visit. For example, we wanted to get Dutch cheese, and Fleur's recommendation got us to an authentic flea market with many great shops and the best cheese at the best price.

Her breakfasts were extraoadinary, including gluten free bread for my wife. The bedroom was very comfortable, and amazingly quiet at night. A pleasant 5 minute walk got us to the tram, and access to downtown was quite quick from there.

Thank you Fleur. We will be staying with you when we visit Amsterdam again!

Awesome B&B

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for our 20th wedding anniversary. Fleur and her family were amazing hosts that opened their friendly doors to us. Their home was just as they listed and convenient in every aspect. Her custom breakfasts were very much enjoyed and dearly missed when we got back home. We would highly recommend them for your next visit!

Amsterdam with a personal touch

  • 5 of 5

Both Fleur and the accommodations were wonderful. Each day started with a delicious breakfast and suggestions for the coming day. Whether it was where to go or just how to get somewhere, Fleur is a very joyful and knowledgeable person. Her assessments of the different museums, restaurants or destinations were spot on at so many levels. I was always able to rely on her opinions. Very unexpectedly she shared a morning excursion with me that was the highlight of my trip. My stay at Fleur's was at the center of my great visit to Amsterdam.

Relaxing and welcoming accommodation

  • 5 of 5

While we weren't blessed with glorious weather for our stay in Amsterdam, we did enjoy our stay at Fleur d'Amsterdam.

Situated in a quiet neighbourhood, but with good access to the city centre by tram, the accommodation was clean and comfortable. There were drinks and snacks in the room, which was a nice touch, and Fleur was very helpful and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the restaurants that she recommended (and also checked out a nearby pizzeria and chip shop, both of which are great!).

Our 2 year old loved her holiday. While Amsterdam isn't the easiest place to navigate with a buggy she enjoyed the library and boat trip best of our excursions. Most of all though she adored Fleur's house with the cats, birds and chickens as well as lots of interesting knick knacks that Fleur was kind enough to let her play with.

Fabulous stay at Fleur's!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for something outside the touristy areas... a place to make our visit to Amsterdam feel authentic... a "home" during our travels. We found this and so much more at Fleur's B&B! She emailed us easily-understood directions from Schiphol that had us take the train to Central Amsterdam, then the tram to her neighborhood -- a easy trip and really nice experience. After a warm greeting upon arrival, Fleur helped us with maps, museum passes, suggestions, and other things necessary for us to enjoy our 4-day stay there. Our room was pleasant; the en suite bathroom was modern and fine. Fleur cooked us wonderful breakfasts (eggs & bacon, fresh bakery rolls, cheeses, butter & jams, fruit, coffee/tee) and we also went out to the neighborhood place, 1900 Cafe, for a very good breakfast one morning as well. We really enjoyed eating locally in the neighborhood each evening after full days of being tourists. While Fleur's home is just outside the downtown area, she's still very much in Amsterdam, so taking the tram into the tourist/central area each day as we did was a nice experience as we passed by things that those who live here see. We would absolutely stay here again, and would recommend Fleur's place to others.

Our little neighborhood is about the most populair of Amsterdam. Why? Because it is quiet, green and safe and friendly. The inner city will not stop with the hustle and bustle of the night, but here is quietness. Set an alarm if you like to start early, because it's not the traffic that will wake you up!

Just around the corner there is a great bike rental and they will have comfortable bike's for 7.50 a day and give yourself a tour through Amsterdam!! Or take the ferry to enjoy a famous Dutch ' kroket'.
