My friend and I, two females in our mid-twenties, stayed at the Eelhouse for three days in January. We were VERY excited to stay at the Eelhouse after reading the house's history on the website, and all the reviews here on trip advisor. We were not disappointed. We walked from Amsterdam Centraal, very manageable even with our luggage. The Jordaan... More

My friend and I stayed at the Eelhouse for two nights this summer. From the very start we had a fantastic experience! From the start Vera & Jasper were the most excellent hosts. Jasper helped with our luggage up the narrow windy staircase to our lovely 'queen' room with a view. Jasper showed us a map of Amsterdam and pointed... More

We stayed at this b&b for 3 nights, it was perfectly placed in the Jordaan area of the city, easy walking distance from most of the main attractions and centraal station. The proprietors were friendly and keen to help us explore the city with directions and information, the continental breakfast was delivered to our room each morning at the time... More

We spent 3 nights in November in the Eelhouse B&B and would highly recommend it to everyone! Excellent location in Amsterdam in the Jordaan area and has pubs, good restaurants, boutique shops and supermarkets all within walking distance. It's in a lovely quiet residential area, so a quiet night and therefore a good sleep is on the cards! It's also... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the Eelhouse for three nights in late October 2014 and very much enjoyed our stay. We found the Eelhouse to be close to everything, yet in a quiet location. We stayed on the 2nd floor, in a room with a plenty of sunlight, and had a spectacular view of the neighborhood. The room... More

So perfectly located with a great view, amazing owners and the breakfast was delicious. The rooms are the good-kind of cozy (and up a high stairwell - so not for the mobility-challenged) - quaint, have everything you need. We can't wait to come back and stay longer.

Great room with lots of windows. Perfect location - away from the craziness but in the heart of a lively neighborhood - not too far from the train station. The hosts, Vera and Jasper, are terrific. Good breakfast delivered to your room every morning. As many others have said, the stairs could be a problem for some - but they... More

My daughter (17) and myself spent three nights in August based at the Eelhouse. We can thoroughly recommend it. A lovely room to return to after braving the crowds in central Amsterdam. We enjoyed watching local life in the park outside from our window. The area is safe even at night and accessible. The tram line is only a few... More

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
