Your room @
AdamGoodStay guesthouse is managed by Hans and Wendie, with special support and occasional help from their 8 year old daughter Dana.
During the spring- & summertime (highseason) AdamGoodStay hosts more guests as Guesthouse / Cultural Exchange, since tourists spend their holiday with us during their 3-5 day city break.
In wintertime (low season) AdamGoodStay guesthouse is more a homestay for guests that stay longer period of time in Amsterdam due to international work- or study-exchange.
Both seasons are equaly interesting for us since we like to interact with good soul people and various cultures from all over the world!
A guest house (also guesthouse) is a kind of lodging. In some parts of the world a guest house is similar to a hostel, bed and breakfast, or inn whereas in other parts of the world (such as for example the Caribbean), guest houses are a type of inexpensive hotel-like lodging. In still others, it is a private home which has been converted for the exclusive use of guest accommodation. The owner usually lives in an entirely separate area within the property and the guest house may serve as a form of lodging business.
In some areas of the world, guest houses are the only kind of accommodation available for visitors who have no local relatives to stay with. Among the features which distinguish a guest house from a hotel, bed and breakfast, or inn is the lack of a full-time staff.
Guest houses tend to be owner managed, due to their size, although in some countries, such as South Africa, guest houses can be very large mansions indeed. South Africa also has a specific rating system for accommodation establishments.
Bed and breakfasts are usually family-owned, with the family living on the premises. Hotels maintain a staff presence 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, whereas a guest house has a more limited staff presence. Because of limited staff presence, check in at a guest house is often by appointment. An Inn also usually has a restaurant attached.
