The host was great and very easy going, an interesting person to talk to. the apartment is beautiful and authentic with original features. The bed was very comfortable and it was very... 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

This B&B was wonderful. It couldn't have been any more convenient to everything we wanted to do. It was a short walk from where our river cruise docked and equally as short to the train station where we caught the train to the airport when we left. The room was great; clean & comfortable. Gijs was an exceptional host. The... More

This small family run B&B is within a few minutes walk of Central Station, along side the canal. Gijs went out to get gluten free items for breakfast, asking if there was anything I especially wanted. Breakfast is freshly cooked when you get up. Very quiet and comfortable, big double shower, free minibar. Everything else said by all other reviewer... More

Great location just 5mins walk from central station and right on a canal side. The owner Gijs is very welcoming... More

I stayed here late June and what a place! Exquisite decor, Gijs (owner) is a warm, welcoming host. We were welcomed with a complimentary bottle of fizz which was great after a long journey. Five minute walk to central station so great location. Rooms are exceptionally clean and tasteful. Double shower and sink in huge bathroom was ace. Comfy bed... More

Took the ground floor appartment and why stay anywhere else. Handy location to the old city, railway station and numerous good restaurants. Plenty of room with a large very comfortable bedroom, new bathroom and adjoining sitting room all included in the appartment. Breakfast room a couple of steps away and open to guests 24hrs. Breakfast more than adequate. Host couldnt... More

My wife and I have just returned from a 4 night break in Amsterdam and we had the pleasure of staying at The Old Lady, a canalside house very near to the Central Station which we found most convenient. We had a large bedroom to the rear of the property,very quiet and overlooking the garden. Spotlessly clean,with a large double... More

Booking.com has the correct ranking for this B&B. unfortunately small number of reviews puts this down the list so hopefully as more review this friendly, wonderfully situated, outstanding B&B it will go up the list. The owner is very helpful, breakfast is great with wide choice and room with courtyard outlook and lovely bathroom is fresh and extremely clean -... More
