“The best & friendliest place to stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

Had a fantastic time, we were met by ron, who showed us to our b and b. He was pleasant and helpful. The b & b was really smart and comfortable, it met all our needs. Even giving us the opportunity to save money by buying in our food. Everything is local supermarket, cafe's coffee shops n bars. It was really nice to have somewhere that felt like home to return to after the hustle and bustle of amsterdam. No one bothered us throughout our whole stay, however we had a contact number if we needed help. I would recommend this to families n friends. Thank you we had a wonderful stay, and will mosyt definatley b returning

Kind and welcoming host, charming and neat room, ideally situated in the heart of old a'dam at the lively square Nieuwmarkt. Comfortable bed, clean bathroom, fresh breakfast buffet upstairs, all necessary facilities in the room.

Room Tip: For those who have a very light sleep earplugs recommendable, as a bar is on the ground floor.

This B&B was close to the train station and an easy walk to all places we were wanting to visit while in Amsterdam. The bar below the room did not impact our stay at all. We had a room at the front of the building and shared a bathroom with the hosts...which we were a bit concerned would be uncomfortable but ended up not being a problem at all! The breakfast was self serving...you take your dishes from your room and load up your plates, and then eat in your room and do your own dishes. The breakfast wasn't always stocked with what we needed, however. The first morning it was great, the second morning there was no milk left for our muesli, as well as no meat or juice left. Other than that everything was wonderful. The room was spacious and clean, the bed was comfortable, and robes were provided which was nice for going to and from the bathroom. The host was extremely helpful and pleasant as well.

Inn Old was a great surprise! Very cozy, big room. Even the bathroom, wich we had to share with the owners, was ok, very clean. The breakfast, wich is served in the room, was delicious. Our room was in the front side of the building, so it was really noisy on the weekend... I think it's the only problem, but if you take some drinks in one of the good pubs nearby you won't have problems to sleep.

My husband and I spent two nights at Inn Old Amsterdam last month. We had reservations for three nights, but a few days before our arrival Daniel contacted me about a mix-up with the booking - he had double-booked our first night so it wasn't available for us. While this was disappointing, he did find us alternate lodging for the night, and he did what he could to make the transition as smooth as possible for us (made the reservation for us at the other place; let us leave our luggage with him and he transferred it over there for us since it was outside the city center; covered the difference in room price; etc).

I was somewhat disappointed with the room though. We had reserved the upstairs studio which, according to the website, has a great view of the Waag and Nieuwmarkt Square, with lounging divans, etc. Well guess what... there are TWO studios upstairs (no mention of this on the website, I just double-checked) and we got the back one with a boring view of rooftops, and a super low ceiling over the bed. Not the end of the world, but false advertising leaves a very bad taste in my mouth. The shower in this room was funky, it was very open (make sure you're VERY comfortable with your roommate!) and at the top of the spiral staircase, with only a 3-foot wall separating the shower from the stairs... so needless to say the stairs got rather wet from the spray, making them quite slippery. A shower curtain is definitely in order here.

As for breakfast, I'm not sure if I missed it? I was told it would be put out in the morning but I never saw anything put out other than the yogurts that were always in the shared fridge. I was up and out by 9:00 AM or so each morning which doesn't seem unreasonably early to me, but maybe that was too early for their breakfast. As for the egg boiler mentioned in other reviews, it was not to be found in this back studio, and the coffee maker was very odd so there was no hope of us working it (the info in the room said it would be explained upon check-in, but it hadn't been). We ended up buying breakfast out each morning which was alright, just know that you may have to do the same.

On the positive side, the Inn's location was great, right on the Nieuwmarkt Square which hosted a different market each morning, several bars/cafes right there, less than a 10 minute walk from Central Station, walking distance to everything. The studio was spacious and the bed was great, one nice big bed instead of two singles pushed together, and quite firm. And Daniel and Nikki were very gracious hosts. I just wish the second studio had been explained, and that the booking mistake hadn't happened.

Room Tip: If you pick "the" studio, ask if it's the front one or the back one.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights at the Inn old Amsterdam. Nikki and Daniel are more than helpful with tips and problem solving and certainly not intrusive. The relaxed atmosphere fits perfectly with the Amsterdam way of life. We really enjoyed putting together our little breakfast and having it in the room. The selection of cheeses is lecker lecker! Everything you need is there and you can set your own schedule...eat and sleep when you want. And you really can walk everywhere from this location.
Yes, the stairs are narrow, like in every original house from the 15th or 16th century in Amsterdam. Duh, this is history, isn't it? If you're that fat then stay in the InterConti.
And what about the club(s) downstairs with live music and the great view of the square with it's daily markets and events? If you're going to Amsterdam for a "quiet, quaint" vacation, think twice. We loved the excitement and, after crawling into bed afer 2 or 3 each night, slept like babies with our earplugs and the little room fan purring in the background.
This is the "Inn" place to be! An added bonus would be the pizza and a bottle of fine Italian wine for a nice price at Daniel & Nikki's Italian Concept store around the corner.

Room Tip: There's a room on the backside that's probably quietest...but not with the great view of the...

A stylish B&B, with a central location. We stayed for two nights and found the atmosphere warm and friendly. The room was well equipped with everything we needed, including special touches like bathrobes, guidebooks, and electricity convertors. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend stay at the Inn Old Amsterdam.
