A really wonderful place to base yourself for a stay on Amsterdam. A short walk from the central station and in a perfect location to explore the city and be far enough away from the noise. We booked the apartment which was large and comfortable. Breakfast was served when you want it and in a truly relaxing environment. Great hosts... More

Spent 3 night staying in the downstairs apartment in the old lady which was centrally located just 5 mins from central station. The accomdation was beautiful and it was great to experience staying in a canal house. Gijs was an excellent host and made us feel very welcome. A faultless stay in a wonderful city

We decided to spend our fifth anniversary in Amsterdam and opted for this fantastic B&B in Singel. Our host Gysh, hope that's spelt correctly, was friendly and very helpful. 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

The Old Lady B&B is located perfectly and is central to everything you will want to do in Amsterdam. It's situated on the Singel canal in a quiet picturesque spot. Gijs the host is wonderful, super friendly, interesting and informative and extremely accommodating. Our room was spacious, and luxurious particularly when compared to many of the other rooms we stayed... More
