Bed and Breakfast in Netherlands
Bed and Breakfast in the Netherlands is a great idea for anyone wanting to eat their main meals out and about in the country. B&Bs are easy to find in the Netherlands, whether it’s a B&B in a hotel or in one of the many Dutch pensions and guest houses. The standard of accommodation can vary and the star rating for Netherlands hotels is really about the facilities (e.g a telephone, and/or television in each room etc) they offer, and the size of the establishment, rather than the quality of the accommodation. Hotels in the Netherlands are rated up to five stars, with anything that does not have a star rating being called a pension, or guest house.
Some establishments, especially in Amsterdam, may serve English breakfast, but in most Dutch B&Bs you will be served a traditional local breakfast. This is likely to consist of any of the following: cereal, bread, cheese, sliced cold meats, fruit juice, and coffee or tea. Multigrain and other dark-grain breads are among the most popular varieties of bread.
Most people, especially children, eat something sweet on their bread for breakfast or lunch; typical is hagelslag (chocolate "sprinkles") or chocolate spread. Children often eat hot cereal at breakfast. Krentenbroodjes (currant buns) are a favourite as well. Prices for bead and breakfast in the Netherlands will vary, according to rating and location. However, you should be able to find a reasonable B&B in the Netherlands from £20 per person per night upwards and B&B in a guest house in Amsterdam can be from as little as £32 per person per night.
