Bed and Breakfast in Bussum

Where can you stay in Bussum other than at the two hotels? There are two Bed and Breakfasts I know of. I have placed my guests there, and they have enjoyed their stays immensely. Both houses are huge --- in quiet, residential neighbourhoods. One is in "Het Spiegel" near the Naarden-Bussum train station, a neighbourhood dominated by houses built at the turn-of-century or much earlier. The other is a 10 minute walk from my home, in an area of 1930's houses and near a park and canal.

The B&B closest to where I live is conveniently located in a quiet residential area off the A1 motorway on the border of Bussum and Naarden, a 10 minute easy and safe cycle ride directly into the medieval walled town of Naarden Vesting. The friendly owner, a retired English teacher-turned-artist, charges 30 euros per person including homemade breakfast. Each room has 2 single beds which can be put together, as shown in some of the photos below.

How to get there: by car from the A1 exit Naarden-Bussum. By train to Naarden-Bussum and then a taxi or bus number 136. The bus stops right on Huizerweg, the main road.

First room on the 1st floor (next above ground floor) with balcony, with access to bathroom with bathtub/shower/toilet next door. [Click on photo to get a larger picture.]

Sitting room on first floor with television, a nice private area to relax. (right)

Top floor: two rooms with two single beds in each sharing separate shower/toilet room (below)

Tea making facilities


Spillover - extra bed in hallway on top floor, just in case.

Breakfast room: homemade bread, homemade jams, freshly squeezed and homepressed juices, freshly cut fruit

2 bicycles for use
