Sunhead of 1617

B & Delicious B

Our B&B

We named our Bed&Breakfast after the gable stone showing a smiling sun. This gable stone dates back to the year our house was built in 1617.

When we bought the house in 1993 we had it fully renovated and prepared it for the B&B we always wanted to run. Recently we renovated the rooms again so that we can guerantee modern comfort in this building that is almost 400 years old.

On the prestigious Herengracht canal

The 17th century canal district is now a Unesco world heritage site: a unique experiment in large scale city planning which has kept its beauty and charm over the centuries. Sunhead B&B, built in 1617 as part of these city extensions, is one of the oldest historical canal houses on the Herengracht.

Our location is absolutely the best possible in Amsterdam. You cannot have a better location the ours. When staying with us you can walk to each and every destination and so safe time and money so you can enjoy our beautiful city to the utmost.

A delicious breakfast

As a past owner and manager of his own restaurant, your host Carlos, loves to cook and will prepare you the most delicious breakfast in town with fresh fruit smoothies, freshly baked rolls and croissants, eggs with fine herbs, tartines and much more.
