welcome AT 2quaybb
Asian hospitality with contemporary design
If you are looking for a combination of design and comfort, hospitality and privacy, rest and space and if contemporary architecture is your passion, then you have found the right address in Amsterdam. Our B&B is a unique townhouse, designed by your host, one of the 60 private plots on Borneo island on the well-known Scheepstimmermanstraat. We offer two rooms in an independent part of our house: a suite and a normal room, both comfortable, both with the necessary commodities. They differ in space and view but not in hospitality and service.
Who are we? We are Bert Tjhie & Amber. It is our pleasure to make your stay in Amsterdam and in our B&B as pleasant as possible. We can give you suggestions for going around the Eastern Docklands and other interesting parts of Amsterdam. We shall help you to find your way either when using the public transport or - alike the Amsterdam inhabitants, if you want to discover Amsterdam on bicycle.

2Quay B&B is situated outside the city centre of Amsterdam, however at a reasonable distance of it. You are on Dam square or Leidseplein within 15 minutes on bicycle, bus or tram.
For one, you don’t have to spend all day in the noise of the city. You start and end your day in one of the most beautiful and quiet areas of Amsterdam where contemporary architecture is leading, where extraordinary shops give the tone, where you have a great choice of restaurants and cafés and where you also don’t have to leave the area for a cultural event.
Limited equipment, so only simple take away meals. The common room / kitchen (30m2) is for common use for the guests. A place where you take breakfast in the morning and where you can enjoy a free coffee or tea. The kitchen is equipped with a microwave, a fridge, a dishwasher. There are also plates, cutlery, cups, etc. for your take-away meals.

3 x 3 bedroom, but two spacious rooms; a suite/appartment of 45m2 on the canal and south side and a "common" room of 25m2 (bathroom and toilet not included in the square metres) behind the front at the streetside.
There is a busstop at 200 metres distance from our house. This bus 48 will take you directly to the central station stopping at the De Gooyer mill, the nautical museum (Scheepvaartmuseum), the main library (OBA) and the NEMO.
If you walk 10 minutes you will find a tramway stop for tram 10. This tram takes you to the Leidseplein, the heart of the city centre. The tram passes the Artis zoo, the tropical museum, the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh museum.
Near to tramway stop 10 you find the stop for tram 26 direction IJburg. If you want more architecture than the Eastern Docklands can provide you, then no doubt IJburg – the new extension of Amsterdam, is an interesting area to discover.
Unfortunately, we don’t have parkingspace for our guests. Parking your car in Amsterdam is costly, free parking an utopia. However, our area is one of the cheapest parkingzones. You pay 6 out of 7 days, sundays and festive days free parking.

There is another possibility. Amsterdam possesses 5 P+R parking-lots situated in the periphery.
Zeeburg P+R is near to our place.

P+R Zeeburg, then from there on take the tram 26 to Central Station in 10 minutes, from where you can explore the city. To get to our house from the carpark Zeeburg, get off at the first stop (Rietlandpark) – from there on it is 10 minutes to walk our place.
