My friend and I stayed here and truly enjoyed ourselves. This is a historic canal house in a great location. Easy to walk anywhere or take public transportation. Eric was very helpful in suggesting restaurants, places to visit and helping us figure out transportation. He was available, but not obstrusive.The stairs are very steep, but I found them to be...

I stayed for a week in the canal apartment on Prinsengracht. It has a great view of the canals. While I would eat my breakfast or read, I liked looking out the window and seeing the boats and people go by. Shopping and nightlife were a very close walk. The tram stop was also convenient when I didn't feel like... More

My partner and I stayed here on the Prinsengraacht for 3 days in February. The communication with Eric was excellent and we found the place no problem. The location is fantastic with tram links all over Amsterdam practically on your doorstep! Eric greeted us with 2 bottles of lager in the fridge upon arrival which we were greatful for as... More

Stayed here in Sept 2013, when I decided to extend my trip to Amsterdam and do some sight seeing. The reviews on TA were accurate - Eric's a nice guy, friendly, and made sure the apt was stocked with whatever I needed for breakfast. You do have to make your own breakfast though, and there's a well stocked kitchen. The... More

The apartment in the Jordaan is very traditionally Dutch. Narrow winding staircase and all! The house has been very nicely renovated inside though, so all the mod cons work beautifully. There are a couple of requirements from a holiday accommodation - secure, clean, safe - and Eric ticks all the boxes. Plus he's a really nice guy who puts in... More

This review is strictly for the "Canal House." My wife and I just returned from a stay at Eric's. We thoroughly loved it. The location is great! The property is really, really cool and unique. Beware! If you are not fit or have any mobility issues, the stairs will probably be problematic, to say the least. But, if can handle... More

Stayed at Eric's B&B in the Jordaan district. Excellent location. We stayed in the ensuite room with the white door on the 1st floor. Its got a good selection of books in the bookcase and I enjoyed going through the books. Eric asked what we wanted for breakfast on the day of arrival, and provided everything we wanted. Eric was...

Although I have reviewed this great apartment before, I thought I would comment on my recent trip in September 2013. Eric was, as always, very kind and considerate and made sure that my stay was as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. He really is a great host! The apartment was very clean throughout, comfortable and as you have read previously... More

We were so fortunate to get this place. It was clean, beautifully renovated, and the kitchen was great. Eric took care of everything for us, and the place is located in a great neighbourhood with a great market down the street on the weekends. Thanks Eric!

A consistent patron of BnBs in the US, and with most hotel rooms in Amsterdam booked due to a Cardiologist Conference, Eric's places looked ideal. He didn't have availability at the Canal House, though did at the Jordaan rooms. I was under the impression that I had the room with an ensuite toilet, as I paid 90 euro per night.... More
