My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights and had the attic suite in the Maes B&B. This is an outstanding location in Amsterdam! We arrived by train and the B&B is an easy, 5-minute walk away. Well ok, it maybe took us 15 minutes but that was simply due to us stopping to take pictures every 20 feet in this beautiful old city.
The room was truly magnificent (be careful of the stairs!), as the attic really has it's own separate bedroom, living room, and bathroom (shower only). Breakfast was another highlight of staying here as it is a wonderful continental spread and on most days carried us through to the evenings.
Maes is located in a perfect location. Turn left out of the front door and you are just a few short walking minutes away from the carnage of the notorious red-light district with the crowded bars, coffee shops, and window shoppers of every nationality. Turn right, and you find yourself in the Jordaan with its tree lined canals, waterside cafes, and a more serene side of the city.
For other tourist destinations, the Anne Frank House is less than 5-minutes away on foot. The museum area is a bit farther, but still easily walkable. The main shopping street is also just minutes away.
If, no, WHEN we get back to Amsterdam, Maes B&B would be our first choice for lodging.
