Le Quartier Sonang

Sleeping on a cloud in the heart of Amsterdam....

We were touched by your thoughtfulness

We have had an amazing time in Amsterdam that has been in very large part thanks to you both. It began even before our arrival into your very thoughtful e-mail full of tips & suggestions for our stay. We knew instantly on our arrival that we have chosen the right place when Frank greeted us on arrival with a warm welcome & a glass of wine! Oki, your breakfasts were delicious & the perfect start to everyday. We appreciated all the little details- the fresh flowers every morning on the breakfasts= tray, the chocolate on the pillow & the lovely calming room scent as we entered our room each night after a long day of touring . We were touched by your thoughtfulness in marking our anniversary with a card & champagne!!! You have been such kind helpful, thoughtful and delightful hosts. We have only scratched the surface of your beautiful city. We hope to return someday & get to know it better and when we do it will again at le Quartier Sonang!

B&B as it's best

Thank you for this lovely weekend. B&B as it's best; hosts, location, comfort of the room and bathroom (not to forget the amazing chocolate beds!) and the superb breakfasts, really fresh (special mention to the orange juice). We lived in Amsterdam for 5 years, and staying at your place felt a bit like coming home. A great experience, and we will be back!

Your e-mail were friendly & welcoming

You are both amazing hosts. Your pre-visit information & suggestions were really helpful. Your e-mail were friendly & welcoming. The house is great, so clean & full of lovely little touches, flowers with your amazing breakfasts, those eggs...! Our room was simply perfect in every way. What I really loved was the feeling of living in real Amsterdam, not a tourist version, the cafe around the corner feels so local, dads coming in with kids after school, locals meeting to chat. Just lovely, we will be back !

Your hospitality that's what keep us coming back

We meet again after 4 years and everything was just as good as then. We enjoy your B&b and your hospitality that's what keep us coming back. I will miss the amazing breakfasts that set us up for the day exploring this wonderful city. Again we leave with many fond memories.

The ideal B&B experience !

We can't really express in words how wonderful our experience was at your lovely B&B. From your warm, personal greeting, to your invaluable help in planning our visit, to the comfortable, homey, relaxing room, to the amazing & delicious breakfast, to the perfect location. This was the ideal B&B experience! We would stay nowhere else in Amsterdam & will recommend your B&B to all our friends & colleagues. Thanks so much for unforgettable experience.

Fresh flowers in the room

We appreciated and thoroughly enjoy the.... lovely, peaceful space your created; delicious breakfast with fresh OJ (much appreciated by this Florida girl!) ; terrific neighborhood & it's location near the "important" things in Amsterdam; fresh flowers in our room; cool papyrus lamp and , of course, Oki's warm welcome & awesome ability to hand heavy bags up your beautiful staircase!

Het aangename verblijf

Wij zullen met plezier terug denken aan onze trip naar Amsterdam en het aangename verblijf in Le Quartier Sonang

Our stay in Amsterdam so wonderful

Thank you so much for making our stay in Amsterdam so wonderful. Your kindness and hospitality are without equal; your breakfast worth several photos! Though we weren't able to book a room here in 2016. we're so glad it worked out for us this time! We wish you the best!

Thank you so much for opening your home

Thanks so much for opening your home to us . Your kindness and hospitality were amazing. We definitely want to comeback. We appreciate your help in making our holiday fantastic.

Hospitality was above and beyond expectation

What a fantastic stay in an absolutely wonderful city! Your hospitality was above and beyond expectation.

Thoroughly Impressed

We are thoroughly impressed with the thought and details gone into the B&B. We have particularly loved the breakfast and location. We would love to comeback one day! 

After 2 weeks in 5star hotels and a luxury ship cruise you out did them all!

First of all thanks for the kindness and hospitality for opening your lovely home to us. After 2 weeks in 5star hotels and a luxury ship cruise you out did them all! The room is sunny, spacious, comfortable, functional and had everything we needed even down to tiny things like electrical plugs and those slippers. The bathroom was beautiful and your personal service in recommendations for places to see, restaurants and where the wine store was so appreciated. The location of your home on a quiet street but so close to everything was great. Each day coming back here tired , it was a delight to sit at the balcony in the sun and relax. And to be back to sleep in that soft and cozy bed with my favorite pillow of our trip! Staying with you made us love Amsterdam all the more. We will definitely recommend you to all out friends traveling here and hope to be back ourselves one day. In the meantime if you want to come to Canada sent us or e-mail and we will get your room ready!

So comfortable

As I entered this room felled with light from the floor to ceiling window/patios door- I knew I was going to lose this B&B. You did not disappointed! I have fallen in love with Amsterdam, the canals, bikes & civilized way of life. I hope to return. Thank you for making it so comfortable.

Making us truly feel at home!

Throughly enjoyed our stay. Brilliant location, wonderful welcome, excellent accommodation. But what made it really special were our hosts - making us truly feel at home!

A bit of heaven on earth !

It is a bit of heaven on earth! we loved staying here in their homes. The little touches, the flowers and the chocolates on our pillow every night made us especially welcome here. Thank you for taking such good care of us ! 

Such a wonderful place to call home

Thank you for being such a gracious & kind hosts. We love the personal attentions, so comfortable accommodation & fabulous breakfasts! Such a wonderful place to call home on our short but sweet visit to Amsterdam!

We felt welcome & home

love the personal customer service and the personal touches. From the moment we step put through the door we felt welcome & home. Your home is cozy & comfortable . We slept wel & loved the breakfasts! Would & will share our recommendations about your place to anyone & everyone know coming to Amsterdam!

You're phenomenal hosts

Giving full credit, you're phenomenal hosts. Your home is impeccable & stylish, The location was central, the neighborhood inviting, just waiting to be explored. I can't say enough nice things but we had an awesome time and would recommend Amsterdam & you guys to anyone looking for a European gateway.

Your peaceful home

You are outstanding host! We had high expectation and they have been exceeded. We appreciated the warm welcome we received and the great advice. We loved our room opening out to verandah and beautiful flowers. Thank you Oki for the delicious breakfasts! and to both of you for answering our many questions, all of your restaurants have been great. Our days have been busy visiting all that Amsterdam has to offer. It has been great after a long day to return to your peaceful home and our serene and sunny Kamar Bidadari room. 

The perfect comforts for transitioning to tranquility

High marks in all B&B assessment categories Oki delivering breakfast complete with a fresh flowers (s) was typical of the personal touches to be appreciated. Looking at the facades of Amsterdam homes it is difficult to imagine a better renovated home than the Sonang. Indeed it offered the perfect comforts for transitioning to tranquility after bicycling the crazy bicycle images from Brugge to here. Thanks again Oki & Frank for your splendid hospitality and friendly reception. We hope to return to your sanctuary one day rather than relying solely on the memories.

Your home smiles on the inside & out!

Thank you for the love you share in this home with us. We felt welcome and comfortable, and well fed! Your home smiles on the inside & out!

There are simply not enough superlatives in the English language to express how appreciative I am

There are simply not enough superlatives in the English language to express how appreciative I am for all that the two of you provided for me during my memorable fist week in Amsterdam! First, there is the impeccable quality that pervades every element of the rooms (& lucky me, to have the good fortune to experience both rooms!) - every detail of comfort & aesthetics attended to, so that the experience throughout is one of tranquil luxury.Their light - filled spaciousness is also a big plus. Then there are Oki's breakfasts - the presentation alone makes one feel pampered bu t the meals themselves are so special: fresh-baked bread everyday, fresh-squeezed orange juice & fresh fruit (special thanks for the rasberries Oki!) and what more could one ask? The inn-room Nespresso machine & your consciousness ensuring that coffee & water were replenished each day, were also very nice touches. The bed was indeed like floating on a cloud - and thank you so much for your hypoallergenic modifications to ensure my getting the best possible quality of sleep. But finally, the key element that provides such a seamless experience of gezelligheid is without a doubt what each of you as a person own as to your guest's experience. I would return to Le Quartier Sonang in a heartbeat & I truly hope that a second visit will be within the near future for me! 

You made our stay so special!

Thank you so much.... Your home is so very comfortable and you made our stay so special!! Your breakfast is so fantastic and the flowers are magical!

What else could we need?

Thank you for a wonderful stay - the perfect location for the end of our holiday. You are gracious hosts - the room is beautiful, breakfast wonderful, chocolates, tea, waster, flowers! What else could we need? As soon as we arrived you welcomed us with friendship. To top everything off, thank you for the surprise champagne and card for my birthday. We will recommend you to traveling family & friends.

You have pampered us

There are not enough words to describe this place. We felt welcomed the first minute we stepped in. The recommendations for restaurants and things to do were great. The location is perfect, nearby to everything, yet quiet and out of the crowd. The Kamar Bidadari with it's gorgeous balcony is so nice, we felt like at home. You have pampered us with delicious breakfasts, chocolates, always a new bottle of water, flowers... what can we say, we just loved it. You are wonderful caring people and we enjoyed talking to you every time we met. We'll be back fo sure!

No detail was left out

Staying here was the perfect end to our trip! Everything was perfect! No detail was left out. We enjoyed the beautiful room with fresh flowers, chocolate and an amazing breakfast each morning... What made our stay the most memorable was our interactions with Oki & Frank. From the minute we arrived we were treated as honored guests. Loved the recommendations and information. We feel like we have two new friends. If our travels ever bring us back, we will certainly stay at Le Quartier Sonang. All the best.

Lovely authentic area

A comfortable stay, lovely room and wonderful hosts. Great breakfasts too!. A great base to explore Amsterdam. Lovely authentic area, full of character. We would love to return and will highly recommend. Thank you to Oki & Frank.

You deserve your great TripAdvisor reviews

Another perfect stay...

Another perfect stay in your nice B&B. Thank you very much. We hope we will see you soon again.

The whole package!

Thank you so much for all you  provided for our first stop on our continent to Cape Dutch tour. Your sparkling eyed recommendations were all spot on& we loved the rooms, the intro in your space, all the aesthetic touches, breakfasts - the whole package. We will remember you both fondly & recommend your accommodation heartily. Thanks!

Another perfect stay...

Another perfect stay at your wonderful B&B! We cannot thank you enough for your kindness, attentiveness & for welcoming us again into your home. We will definitely be back!


A perfect home from home which has given us the restoration needed to face our fast paced life again. A beautiful city explored using thoughtful suggestions you gave us, and on full tummies from a delightful breakfast. Thank you and I'll hope we'll be back soon (babysitting dependent!).

The restaurant and activity suggestions were super!

Can't say thank you enough for your hospitality. Loved everything! Breakfast, bed, sweet nightly chocolates and most of all your wonderful city. The restaurant and activity suggestions were super! Keep it up and wish you both the very best.

A massive thank you

A massive thank you for an amazing stay! We will be telling all our friends to stay with you when they visit Amsterdam. We will be back soon! Thank you both.


What a memorable time we have had in Amsterdam, made even more so by the hospitality shown to us by both of you. The accommodation was first class: a sunlit room, a marvelous breakfast, all in the heart of a vibrant and exciting city - who could ask for more. Ruth certainly did her homework when choosing your B&B. Thanks again.

What can I possibly say...

Well, what can I possibly say that would express how wonderful our stay was with you! I feel like we are leaving old friends behind. We really appreciate everything you did to make our stay an enjoyable one. Thank you for taking such good care of my dad (& me..). All the best.

Thank you...

We have had a very comfortable relaxing few days here in Amsterdam. Thank you both for your warm and welcoming hospitality.  The breakfasts in the room were lovely, especially the flowers on the tray, the turn down service and chocolates. The restaurant recommendations were most helpful. Thanks again for your warmth and hospitality.


Thank you for recovering me from my hard work / party trip. Loved your place, neighborhood, breakfast and the bed! Great tips also from Frank for places to visit, liked everyone of them. Your place made Amsterdam much more special. I wish I could have stayed longer... Now I will be continuing to Berlin feeling like myself again, all thanks to your hospitality! Until next time. 

Breakfast is so much more delicious and fresh

Thank you so much for welcoming us to your lovely home. It's so much nicer than staying in a large impersonal hotel (and the breakfast is so much more delicious and fresh!). We have enjoyed being in the busy city, managed not to get run over by bikes and trams, and are looking forward to our journey south and getting on our bikes too! Thank you again. Tot ziens!

I've already started to tell people about the amazing breakfasts

Thank you for being the perfect hosts. From the moment I walked in you welcomed with open arms. The rooms are delightful and I've already started to tell people about the amazing breakfasts. Thanks for your restaurant recommendations, all great! I absolutely loved my time in Amsterdam and you made it so easy for me. Hope to visit your lovely B&B and city again!

You blew me away....

You blew me away, Oki & Frank. Le Quartier Sonang is deservedly the Number One B&B in Amsterdam. Everyone of the great reviews on TripAdvisor is absolutely accurate. Over the years I've been to Amsterdam more than a dozen times from the USA and from different expat assignments in Europe. I'm retired now and was looking for something unique. Le Quartier Sonang is a very special B&B because you executed your vision for brilliantly designing & constructing your B&B with materials and furnishings of high quality; because you have a great location in a friendly site and quiet residential neighborhood 5 minutes away from all the best Amsterdam has to offer; and because you Oki & Frank work together seamlessly with passion and unbridled enthusiasm that can be felt by your guests. You made me feel like a very welcomed special guest - like a VIP for my 4 night stay. All the best.

Totally Perfect

Wonderful stay, you made us feel so welcome, your recommendations for bars and restaurants to visit, to where all the great shopping was to be found - Dave especially thanks you!! Our room was perfect, so calm and comforting, beautifully furnished with so many added extras. Superb breakfast every day send us out to explore fully fuelled, the fresh flowers are such a lovely touch. We feel so lucky to have found you, we will certainly stay again if we revisit Amsterdam.

Not goodbye, but Au revoir

Your sincere warmth and accessibility are clear from the moment a guest arrives. The room was lovely and the breakfast perfect. All your many recommendations were great and your general advice and directions were always helpful. We now consider Le Quartier Sonang our home in Amsterdam. Thank you for everything. Not goodbye, but Au revoir.

A stay to remember

A sincere thank you for making our Amsterdam stay one to remember. From the moment we first made contact with you, we knew we would be well looked after. Amazing breakfasts, bed and delightful hosts along with tips & hints of what to see & where to eat. Thank you.

'Cead mile failte'

Even though you haven't been to Ireland yet, you certainly know the meaning of 'cead mile failte' - a hundred thousand welcomes in Irish. Your tips for local bars and restaurantshave all met the spot and the solitude of the earea helps hugely. Amsterdam is a truly great city and it's people are open and welcoming. The breakfasts were gorgeous and we had great sleeps in the room. We certainly will come back to 'Le Quartier Sonang' and will recommend it to our friends. Once more many thanks for a great stay: Go raibh maith agath

In gratitude we remain....

We are filled with gratitude for the loveliness you so generously offer: Delectable Breakfasts, Sumptuous Bed, Vibrant Geraniums, Tranquil Bedroom, Luxurious Bath, Serene Neighborhood, Marvelous Dining Recommendations, Felt Like Home, Cheerful Happy Hosts!

One of the highlights was staying here

What a fabulous time in Amsterdam and certainly one of the highlights was staying here at your beautiful home. The quiet neighborhood and location couldn't be better. And of course your hospitality and attention to detail made us feel so welcome. Thanks again.

The consummate hosts...

You two really are the consummate hosts. Your care and attention regarding our stay was much appreciated. My room was beautiful, the breakfasts hand-delivered and delicious, and the bed a perfect 'cloud' on which to sink. Thanks for checking in  with us every day to give us (better) suggestions. You made Amsterdam even more special for us. Thanks so much!

How special it was!

This was our first (but hopefully not our last) visit to Amsterdam. It has been a wonderful experience - made even more so by your warm welcoming, caring and the local knowledge you shared with us each day. How special it was! We so enjoyed your home; it has a fabulous location. The gardens, it's enormous windows, the architecture, beautiful ambiance, the modern amenities, oh-so comfortable bed and the delicious and nutritious breakfasts. We thank you so much for the lovely experience.

Your eyes for beauty- the flowers, artwork, decor - is something worth celebrating and blessed us thoroughly

Thank you for the very kind and hospitable welcome to your lovely home and fascinating city. Your care for us and attention to detail were most appreciated, especially in lights of my particular food needs. The breakfast felt wonderfully nourishing - body and soul!

Die kurzen Zeit in Amsterdam

Wir haben die kurzen Zeit in Amsterdam sehr genossen! Wir waren nicht das letzte Mahl hier. Das Zimmer was toll, sehr zentral gelegen und das Frühstück super. Wir danken euch herzlich für eure Gastfreundschaft.

We had an amazing time in Amsterdam...

Thank you so much for opening your beautiful home to us during our stay in Amsterdam. The rooms was so tastefully decorated and our breakfast were exceptional. All of your local recommendations for restaurants and things to do were fantastic. We visited most of them and some of the restaurants even twice! We had an amazing time in Amsterdam and truly believe, it was because of our stay with you. We hope to return soon. Thanks again.

They know the way to respect privacy

WOW, What an experience our first time in Amsterdam and we felt so much at home. Frank & Oki definitely know the way to respect privacy, but make themselves available. Everything they provide is beyond perfect! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Staying here made the perfect ending for the trip!

Thank you for your great hospitality. We had a very comfortable stay. The room was fantastic. We really appreciate your attention to detail and little touches everywhere. We are glad we had chosen to stay  here rather than other hotels. Really loved the tulips in the room. Street watching while having breakfast is another highlight in the room which we enjoyed so much. It was a great way to start our day. Amsterdam is our last stop of this European trip  before we head home. Staying here made the perfect ending for the trip!
