Picking accommodation via the web is a bit risky, but I made a great choice with the Barangay. They really are walking distance from the station. Run by Wimmo and Godwin I can understand why people keep going back to them. Wimmo is a mine of interesting and useful information on where to go and what to see. Our rooms were very clean, comfortable and warm, my husband and I are from South Africa and feel the cold. Breakfasts were very well presented and with extras, each morning, an egg dish which we had not expected. The fruit was fresh and the yoghurt wonderful.
We arrived early, before our rooms were ready, but Wimmo waited in for us and stored our luggage. When we left, 3 days later, we had the same problem, only getting a train in the late evening, but again no problems, our luggage was happily stored for us, so we could spend an uncluttered day sightseeing.
This was our first visit to Amsterdam and 3 days was too short. If we ever get the chance to return, I know where we will be staying.
