“Felt Like I was Stealing Luxury!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

I can't gush enough about Mae's B&B. From the start, our communication with them was fast and informative. They are relatively a short distance from the Centraal Train Station, but having walked it with our bags, I'd probably recommend a taxi just for comfort reasons. We were met by Milo and taken to our amazing room and apartment about a block away from their main headquarters. Just let them know what time your train, plane etc... arrives and what time you think you'll arrive at their headquarters so they have someone to meet and greet you.

Our room was beautiful. The building we were in took 3 years to renovate and they created an oasis of luxury for B&B prices. At 125 Euro per night, our room was big, our bathroom was a spa with a 2 person bathtub and separate glassed in shower with rainshower head. Just delightful. We had 24 hr access to their kitchen and main living area which were beautiful. If you wanted to cook you had access to everything. Breakfast was included was a very deluxe continental spread. Fresh fruit, fresh breads and pastries, meats, cheeses, hard boiled eggs, coffee, juices. Absolutely delicious and anything leftover from breakfast was fair game in the fridge at night! I had a bowl of fresh fruit after a night out and it was wonderful.

Lastly, Milo offered us a free app we could download to our iphones that was programmed with maps back to the hotel, restaurant & activity recommendations and a way to quickly contact someone at Mae's should you need them. It was really a tourists dream app. Hotels in Venice should get together and do this. It made wandering around great and we never felt lost. ,Again, I can't say enough great things. I am only sad I did not get to meet Ken & Vlad who are the proprietors of Mae's. We will definitely go back and hopefully meet them next time!

My husband and I stayed at the Herrn on Singel Canal for 2 nights on route to a cruise. This bed and breakfast is amazing! Everything about it is wonderful - the location is perfect, we walked everywhere! It's a beautiful, historic building, decorated impeccably. It is clean, quiet, spacious and very comfortable. Host Vlad was friendly and a wonderful host. There's a delicious
breakfast with, juice, coffee, eggs, cereal, yogurt, fruit, bread, meat, cheese and little warm pancakes. This is the best bed and breakfast I ever stayed in and would go back and recommend it to all!

Room Tip: Downstairs room was cool, bright and spacious. with private bath. Easy to get down with large luggag...

We stayed at Maes B&B 4 nights. It was so awesome. Vlad and his crew were super friendly and worked very hard to make our stay comfortable and easy. We arrived before our room was ready. They brought us coffee (we had been on an overnight flight) and after we got checked in, we were invited to have breakfast even though we had not stayed the previous night! They told us about a free app with restaurants, etc to make our site seeing easier. The restaurant suggestions they gave us provided delicious food. Our room was very neat and clean. Breakfast was abundant and so delicious. We will stay here again when we get back to Amsterdam! Thank you Vlad and crew!!

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!
