Yes, the room was lovely - well kept and clean. Aside from the freezer, which appeared to have never been defrosted, only complaint was a lack of air conditioning on the extremely hot days I was there in July. The owners were on holiday; however, their friend, Fabian, was warm, and welcoming. I found the location to be way too... More

I'm very sorry that you felt that The Eelhouse was not up to your standard. I really enjoy running my B&B every day and i feel really sad to hear you didn't enjoy your stay. The main reason why this B&B is such a pleasure to run is since people choose the Jordaan district instead of the touristic part of... More

Spent 6 lovely days in this quaint and quirky city of Amsterdam and stayed at The Eelhouse. The rooms are well appointed, very airy and bright, clean and a great breakfast in the room to top it all. If you can handle the typical Amsterdam steep and narrow stairs to get to your room at the Eelhouse then you are... More

We were recommended Eelhouse by friends. Amazing place to stay! From the first email with Vera every little detail is taken care of. Eelhouse is only approx 15 mins walk from Central Station and located in the Jordan district. This area is full of lovely little bars, cafes and restaurants and surrounded by the canals. We were greeted by Jasper... More

We stayed at the Eelhouse B&B for 8 nights in May!! Location was great; very quiet yet a nice walk to the center of town and close to nice small restaurants. Vera and Jasper were very accommodating and had lots of suggestions re: restaurants and things to do. The breakfast each morning was so extensive that we had to ask... More

We stayed in B&B at end of April... Great location, close to everything and very quiet at the same time. We were able to get a good night sleep even during King's Night and King's Day. Fresh and filling breakfast was served to our room at time we asked for. And very special thank you to Vera - her hospitality... More

We stayed at the Eelhouse in April ´14 on our first trip together to Amsterdam. We, honestly, have got nothing but good things to say about this B&B. It is extremely well situaded, a less than 10 minutes walk from Westerkerk, which is next door to Anne Frank´s house. In 15 minutes one can make his way to the very... More

Stopped at the Eelhouse for a weekend, and the stay this time was as good as it was the previous year. The room was again lovely and clean with a huge comfy big bed. Vera's breakfast are still brill and very filling with boiled eggs, fruit bread, jams, sliced meat and cheese and croissants. The fact it's situated in the... More

We stayed in their other location: Quartier Neuf’ is located at Wolvenstraat 10 on the lovely Nine Streets in the heart of Amsterdam. This small B&B was exactly what we were looking for: 1. A clean room, newly and nicely furnished, with a good shower 2. In the heart of the city, ( the Nine Streets - Canal Area )... More

We stayed at the Eelhouse in October last year on our first trip to Amsterdam. We should have thanked Vera and Jasper before now, because they were the perfect hosts. Although a B&B, you have your own entrance to the building, which makes it feel more like an apartment with the luxury of a healthy, generous breakfast delivered to your... More
