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

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

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
