“Totally satisfied”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

We stayed six nights at this B&B and we were quite comfortable. Our room was clean, the breakfast was good, Vlad was a wonderful host, the location excellent. Vlad gave us tips on what was happening each day that we wouldn't otherwise know about. We asked for a quiet room and it was very quiet. We ate dinners at restaurants on our small street, in fact on our side of the block, and didn't even use them all up and they were terrific. There are quirky, steep staircases but that is the case in canal houses so we expected it. We walked everywhere, even to our farthest destination. We will stay here every time we visit without question. Why look anywhere else? Prices are very reasonable also.

We recently stayed at maes for two nights.....as others have mentioned the stairs are steep but that is a small price to pay for staying in this charming house. Vlad and staff are wonderful, breakfasts are terrific, and the location couldn't be better. We easily walked everywhere.....museums, train station, boat docks, etc.
The immediate area around the b & b is filled with restaurants, shops, etc. Fabulous find!

We have stayed at Mae's three times in the past 18 months and each time the stay was excellent. The rooms are clean, the common areas spacious, the breakfast fresh and tasty, the service attentive and friendly (thanks to Dima a most engaging and helpful staff member), the prices so reasonable by Amsterdam standards, and a location within walking distance of most any attraction if you own a good pair of walking shoes. Well done again and again Mae's.

This was such a central location, however it was on a quiet street which was really nice. You're close to everything that the city has to offer. The service was excellent, with a great attention to detail. We couldn't have had a better experience, Highly recommended.

Just back from a three night trip to Amsterdam with my family. We chose the Maes & Heren B&B on the basis of its Trip Advisor rating and were not disappointed.

We were met at the Herenstraat address by Milo, who walked us the short distance to the house on the Singel canal. We had two adjacent basement rooms, which were a bit dark but well presented and very comfortable.

Later we met Vlad, one of the owners, who was very hospitable and took time to suggest a variety of things to do and restaurants to try.

Finally, the breakfast deserves a mention. The variety of food was impressive and the communal table helped to create a good atmosphere with other guests.

We'd certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: The room at the front of the house had a particularly good bathroom, with a large bath and a walk-in...

We spent 5 nights in the attic which was large enough for 2 adults and 2 teens. This was the perfect location to see all of Amsterdam from. Our hosts were fabulous and very helpful both during our stay and as we were planning our trip.

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.
