Over Babette Hofstede
My name is Babette, I'm married with Hugo and we do have 4 kids (6,7,8,10). We both live in Amsterdam over 25 years now and are still surprised by its variety and beauty. For a living, Hugo has a financial role within an international recruitment office. After years of performing IT program management roles within various multinationals I, last year, decided to follow my heart by starting to create wall design. Besides Amsterdam we love going to the theatre, nice restaurants, travelling (exploring the world), enjoying family time and creating nice spaces/objects, which you will see in our home as well.
Waarom Centrum, Amsterdam, Nederland
we live here just because we love (the city centre of) Amsterdam, the beauty of canal houses and the great people living here.

Great stay in Amsterdam
The accommodations were just right. Great location, close to everything that we wanted to do including the train station (10 minute walk).
Babette was very knowledgeable and helpful for restaurants and sights to see.
The room was very clean and comfortable. The mattress was amazing and the bathroom was beautiful.
Babette even freshened up our room one day during our 3 day stay. Thank you.
We will definitely try to use this accommodation again on our next visit to Amsterdam.
Dear Rick, Thank you for your review and hope we may welcome you in future again. It was a real pleasure to host your stay and really happy to hear you enjoyed our place a lot :-)! warm wishes Babette
Perfect for a 2-nite Stay
Room is located in a lovely neighborhood within a few minutes walk to coffee shops, pubs and restaurants. A 10-minute walk further takes you to Central Square and a number of other popular spots, while sheltered from heavy tourist traffic. Room was nothing fancy but very clean with a great shower, and sufficient for all our needs, Bed was a bit soft for my tastes, but my wife liked it and slept well. Hostess Babette was very welcoming and fantastic in helping us get adjusted to the area. Highly recommended!
Really nice and private place to stay, and Babette is a super host.She was so helpful.
Babette’s place is a really nice and cozy place to stay. She is so warm and kind. Best host ever. She help us a lot and gave us tips to where to eat and to go and do. She was very sweet and attentive to us. Her place is immaculate, very clean and private. We loved staying there. Next time we are in Amsterdam we’re definitely staying there. We loved everything about the place. Thank you Babette for everything!
Babette’s Place was the perfect nest from which to enjoy Amsterdam
The room is in the basement of the family home, and one is really very private. The space is stylishly furnished, and has a flair that is a world away from the typical IKEA furnished places on the market. Babette is also a generous and attentive host. The children upstairs can get a bit boisterous, but as I have no children in my world, I found this no problem at all. It was quite endearing, in fact, to hear a family going about its business. Not everyone may feel this way, but I’d happily return.
