“Coud Not Be Better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Difficult to find enough superlatives to describe this place. Start with the proprietors - Vera and Jasper - could not have been more kind, informative, or accommodating. Perfect location to all the sites and good restaurants. Very old and charming historic home set across from a park. Beautiful large windows overlook the streets below and let in the cool breezes. Room with small refrig stocked with wine, beer, juice, and water (complimentary!). Fantastic breakfast. Good value for the money. Highly recommended - will return for sure on the next visit. Only one caveat - steep steps and lots of them (Jasper handles the luggage, bless him!), so not suited for the arthritic or otherwise limited. Trust us - you will not regret you reservation or stay at the Eelhouse B&B!

You or your taxi driver won't find this place by any signs.....there aren't any. Go by the address and you'll get there. Wonderful, modernized room in a corner building about a 7-minute walk from Ann Franke's house. The Landlords are a young couple, Vera and Jasper. They'll help you and your luggage up and down the steep staircase to your room. And Vera brings you breakfast to your room at your convenience. An interesting combo coffee-expresso-type machine makes individual cups of coffee in your room. We only spent 2 nights there after our river cruise, but we really liked the place and Amsterdam in general. The room and bed were very comfortable.

Room Tip: There are 3 rooms. The top one is a little smaller, but the other 2 are the same. The difference...

We loved our stay with Vera and Jasper who gave good directions. it is a bit of a walk from Centraal Station but close to everything while still nice and quiet at night. it was lovely and clean and our hosts were very generous with their time. The breakfast was lovely and included fresh croissants, fruit, yogurt, meat cheeses. There were chocolates in the room and all in all very delightful, we would totally recommend the Eel House

Room Tip: Always ask for directions to your room. I think every room in the Eel House is nice.

We stayed here for one night en route to Texel island. What at amazing place, our only compliant is that our stay was too short. We were greeted by the friendly owners who took us to our room. The room was beautiful and the fridge had a complimentary bottle of wine, two beers, water and orange juice! The lady gave us advice on what to see and do in Amsterdam. The location is perfect in a really nice area only a 15 minute walk from the train station. In the morning we were brought breakfast in our room. We couldn't recommend this B&B highly enough!

As expected, Eelhouse was an excellent accommodation for our three days vacation!
Our hosts, Vera and Jasper are very helpful and friendly, the location is perfect to visit Amsterdam by foot, the room is spectacular (at least our room, the attic one, small but very comfortable).
Breakfast is delicious and rich, the coffee machine provides you the kick to start the adventure.

Room Tip: Choose the attic room!

Loved everything about the Eelhouse. We stayed 4 nights in July during very hot days, but the room was comfortable with open windows and there is a fan if needed. The location is perfect, in such a beautiful part of the Jordaan neighborhood. (Cafe Restaurant de Reiger is a delicious, fresh, and cozy place to eat that is nearby). We stayed on the top floor and the view was unbeatable and Vera brought our breakfast to our room every morning at exactly the requested time. The breakfast was the freshest and best out of all the places we visited on this trip to several cities. I still miss those delicious croissants. The mini-fridge with water, OJ, beer, and wine is one of those things that puts this b&b above others. Also liked the in room coffee maker. Vera was a very kind hostess. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Higher floor has a great view and less street noise- although it is a pretty quiet street. Downside...

For my work and business in Amsterdam I went several times to this B&B. Great location in centre of Amsterdam. Every week a warm welcome by the host Jasper or Vera. I stayed in several rooms and every room was very nice. Luxury and clean bath rooms with toilet and shower. Great was the refrigerator with a welcome drinks as wine, beer or water. The rooms have an own water boiler for thee and coffee machine.
The room has an excellent bed with enough pillows and is sleeping very well. The breakfast is included and is very tasteful with orange juice, breads, an egg, and cheese, meet and marmalade. See also the pictures.
I had a pleasant stay in the Eelhouse and wenn I visit Amsterdam again I surtenly Reservate a room here. NE
