“Our 2nd great visit ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

This is our 2nd visit in 2 years to Maes. Vlad greets us, shows us everything. We are very comfortable in our quiet room. Breakfast is abundant. Good coffee. Exc location close in. We buy dinner food/wine at the nearby AH & relax in the living room. Reserve early; they fill up.

Spent 2 nights at Mae's . It was ideal, great location. We had the attic room with own small lounge area. Hosts were friendly. Breakfast was brilliant and it was very informal chatting with other guests from other parts of the world. Would definitely return.

Ken and Vlad were on hand to greet us personally at Maes B&B, located a short distance off the Herengracht in Amsterdam, in the lovely Jordaan neighborhood. We enjoyed an apartment with a large, fully-equipped kitchen overlooking a peaceful back garden. The shower room was separate from the tiny toilet room, which can be helpful when two people are sharing the facilities. The free wifi connection was fast and reliable. Even though Amsterdam is a bustling metropolis, our sleeping quarters were quiet.
The included breakfast is served in an upstairs breakfast room reached by extremely narrow and steep stairs (common in many Amsterdam houses). The breakfast offered ham, hard-boiled eggs, fresh fruit, pastry, breads and jams. The crew whipped up cappuccino on the spot, greatly appreciated. A note of caution: the breakfast hours at Maes B&B are limited to 9A-11A. I was in Amsterdam for a meeting of a large international group, and our activities often began before 9 AM, so I was not always able to eat breakfast at the B&B. Not a big deal, but something to be aware of.
The Jordaan is a neighborhood where one can sit on the stoop in the evening with a beer in hand, and watch the bicyclists and walkers go by. It’s an enjoyable location in one of the world’s truly great cities.

Room Tip: If you have trouble with stairs, request the ground-floor apartment.

My wife and I visit Amsterdam regularly and we always try to stay at Maes B&B. It is a wonderful boutique B&B in canal district. The rooms are all very tasteful and the breakfast is outstanding. Great location and easy access to the train station and major sites. The owners and staff are very welcoming. A hidden jewel!

This was my favorite accomodation during our 2 week vacation. When we arrived at Amsterdam Central Station we had only a short walk to Vlad and Kens where we were warmly greeted by Vlad who showed us to the house on the Singel Canal. Our room was downstairs-immaculately clean and very comfortable. The only downside to this particular room was the toilet was in a closet in the hall (my husband is a little claustrophobic) Vlad showed us the house and even downloaded an app on my phone that would help us locate popular attreactions in Amsterdam as well as some restaurant suggestions that turned out to be fantastic!
We enjoyed the company of the other guests in the home while we enjoyed the shared living room area that overlooks the canal and street, and during the breakfast served each morning by a young man that comes in each day at 8am. Vlad was there each day to check on his guests and see if we needed anything. Thank you Vlad for providing us with the perfect place to end a fantastic vacation!

We arrived late and were greeted by our host Vlad. He made us feel at home and showed us around the B & B. It's especially nice to have access to the kitchen and gathering room. We made use of both several times during our three night stay. Our room looked into the back area which was filled with trees and greenery. It was very quiet and tranquil. Our room also had the large attic shower and tub with sink area. The stairs to the top were especially steep, and you needed to be very cautious. It was like being in a treehouse. Being in an old canal house, meant that the stairs were steep and narrow. We were very careful when we went up and down. It is a place that we will always remember fondly. We would recommend this place to others because it gives you an opportunity to be a part of the

After walking out of another hotel and desperate to find somewhere for the night I remembered hearing good things about Mae's and a call to Ken and Vlad saved our first trip to Amsterdam. They found myself (and daughter) accommodation in one of the apartments for the first night and although it was latish when we arrived Vlad met us and ensured we had everything we needed. The apartment was superb, spacious and immaculate with a small patio and canal view. The second night we stayed in the B&B house which was also a delight to stay in. The location of both was perfect and Vlad gave us excellent tips and advice and a lovely breakfast. We look forward to returning - for a longer stay.
