Positive Reviews

Kind and informative owners.

La Corte Sconta’s owners were found to be warm and friendly in welcoming guests into their B&B/home, and had lots of great tips and information to share on Amsterdam.

Easy city access, peaceful floating waterhouse.

The Amsterdam city centre is easily accessible by tram, but peaceful location itself is unique — the B&B is found in a floating family house on the Ij Lake, and is frequently visited by ducks and swans.

Quirky, cosy, clean quarters.

Each of the three colourful rooms were found to have their own quirky style, and the B&B in general was found to be clean, with nice little touches throughout and a house cat.

Negative Reviews

Some minor things to bear in mind.

Some guests have mentioned a few small things to consider, which included the price, which a handful thought to be too steep, the possibility for a little noise due to the wooden house, and the distance to central Amsterdam, which while not far on the tram, could be an issue for people wanting to be stay right in the middle of the action.
