We had a fantastic continental breakfast prepared for us each morning with freshest artisan breads from the local bakery a mere minute up the street. The room was beautifully appointed and... More

We stayed here for two nights. The location is very central, and Gijs the host is excellent, very friendly and helpful. We were shown to a large apartment which included a king size bed and a vast breakfast selection. A very easy 5 stars and we'd love to come back.

From the street you wouldn't know it existed. No flashing neon signs. Just need to remember the address: Singel-38, and notify your arrival time. One of two rooms on level 1 up a wide spiral staircase. Our host took up the cases. Our room was quite large, at the rear, overlooking a central shared garden. A very comfortable QS bed,... More

We stayed at The Old Lady for 2 nights while in Amsterdam and it was a wonderful stay. We had the first floor apartment and were impressed with how well it has been preserved. The location is excellent for getting from the central train station as well as being able to explore the city. We were a little worried that... More

We stayed here for a short citytrip to Amsterdam. It has a perfect location in the city centre, with central station just a walk away, but still in a quiet neighborhood. Rooms were very clean and high in comfort. Bathroom with double shower is a nice extra. Gijs was a very friendly and helpful host who, in advance, offered us... More
