Great location for exploring the area, and out of the fray. Breakfast and stocked fridge were great touches. The only problem was going up the very narrow and windy stairs to several floor for our room. Our hostess was very accommodating and helped with the baggage. Thought it was a bit pricey for the time of year as well

Vera and Jasper are amazing hosts that personalized our visit. 5 minute walk to Anne Frank House and numerous sites but we are tucked into a lovely neighborhood. Vera delivers a delicious breakfast tray at a time of our choosing. We loved our tiny 4th floor room with a view...yes, tiny stairs to climb but our host did the baggage.... More

Cozy B&B at a great location in Amsterdam. Surpringly short distances to practically everywhere in the city. Wonderful hostess, who brings the breakfast to your own room! Awesome restaurants and cafés nearby. Highly recommended!

The Eelhouse is a such a great find in Amsterdam! Located in the Jordaan, it is just far enough away from the hustle and bustle and close enough to all of the major attractions to make you feel like you are not missing out on anything. We walked everywhere from the B&B and felt as it nothing was too far... More

We spent one week at Eelhouse B & B in February. We really enjoyed the location on a quiet street in Jordaan, yet were close to restaurants, shops, bars and many different weekly markets. I especially enjoyed the view from our room in the morning, surrounded by gorgeous houses and watching the locals bike around the neighbourhood. Vera was wonderful,... More

Stayed at the Eelhouse in last November, together with my girlfriend. It was a great experience, the B&B is located in 'de Jordaan' a nice neighberhood close to central station and all the touristic things of Amsterdam, but it has the vibe of real Amsterdam. Great restaurants and bars closeby and the owners can give you great recommendations. we stayed... More

Friends recommended The Jordaan as the area to stay for our recent visit to Amsterdam. We found The Eelhouse on the internet and booked a stay for 4 nights. Both were inspired choices. The Eelhouse is a typical Amsterdam house with the benefit of a position on the corner of a quiet residential street. The corner position along with the... More

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
