“Bas is the best host.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2005

We have stayed at Amsterdam Lodge twice. We made our first trip to Amsterdam in April, 2004, had a great time, and fell in love with the city. Our stay at the Amsterdam Lodge was what made that first trip such a pleasure. Good location, quiet neighborhood, comfortable bed, good breakfast, privacy, and our host Bas. We felt so fortunate to have found this place. Bas greets you, and gives you your keys, your own copy of a good map of the city, restaurant suggestions, and any other helpful information, then you are on your own until Bas returns and serves breakfast in the morning. We enjoyed sharing breakfast with other guests.The whole atmosphere is very relaxed, Bas puts everyone at ease. If you are a fan of American baseball, you will have a special bond with him.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2005

Stayed in June 2005.

Logistics – The hotel is well situated. We got the train from the airport; they run every 15 mins and take about 20 mins to get to Amsterdam Central Station & costs a few Euro. We walked from the station to the hotel with suitcases easily in 20 mins. I had printed a map of the city from the internet before leaving and the owner Bas had also supplied directions, however if you arrive when dark get a taxi or risk loosing your way.

Location – is very good. As I said you are 15 minutes from station and you can easily explore the city on foot if you like walking, otherwise hire a bike. The hotel is on the West of the city in a nice peaceful street.

The hotel – The Amsterdam lodge is on three floors. Floor one is sublet to a small cloths shop. Don’t worry about this I never saw anyone in there and were not at all bothered. You enter the lodge via a door next to the shop and a narrow staircase takes you to the first floor. This has lounge/dining area, kitchen and the first room. A second staircase takes you to the second floor where you have two further bedrooms.

The Staff (Sorry Bas could not resist) – Bas is a great host, very helpful and interesting to chat to over breakfast about you plans for the day. Rooms always clean and fresh towels every day. Bas does not stay in the hotel so you get you own key and come and go as you please. Breakfast was bread, jams,eggs etc and very nice too. When I booked the hotel Bas was very quick to respond to emails and provide details.

The Red Room – This is where we stayed. Very comfortable, with Fridge, TV, hanging space etc. Your private bathroom is just across the hall & while not perfect you soon get used to it.

General Tips – bas can advise on places to eat. We chose a place on the first nigh at his suggestion and had great food, can’t remember the name but just around the corner. Just enjoy – you will miss it when your home.

Would return again.

We booked this B&B not knowing quite what to expect and it was brilliant! Located in the quiet area of the Jordaan with lots of lovely bars and restaurants. We stayed in the red room, very clean and spacious!! Great breakfast. Bas the host is extremeley friendly and will try and help as much as he can. We would definitely stay there again!

We had a great time in Amsterdam last November and part of it because of our stay at the Amsterdam Lodge. The area is peaceful, everything is in walking distance. We had booked the Red Room, large, nicely furnished, confortable and bright, though the (private) bathroom was accross the corridor. The place is very clean. Breakfast is generous with fresh bread every morning and sharing breakfast with the other hosts is quite friendly. Any request, Bas and Anita will give you advice. Good value for money. Very good address.

Booked this B & B after reading reviews on this site not disappointed. We had the Ivy room which was small but clean, comfortable and quiet. Owner does not live in property which I feel is preferrable for privacy. However Bas the owner is exceptionally friendly and helpful and gives lots of advice over breakfast. Area around lodge has lots of nice restaurants and bars and its not far to walk into the centre. Very good vegetarian restaurant nearby De Bolhoed I think its called! Overall Lodge offers good value for money and i would recommend it.

We stayed in the Amsterdam Lodge a few weeks ago, and had the best time ever. It felt like being welcomed in your own home. The B&B is located in one of the best areas in town, the Jordaan. A beautiful and quiet area very close to the centre of town. We did everything by foot! The B&B has very clean and lovely decorated rooms. On top of this we got a great deal of help from the hosts Bas and Anita, who helped us save hours of waiting in a line. Thanks again, and good luck in the future!

We stayed at the Amsterdam Lodge in April, a week or so after the owner opened this B&B. The owner/operator is young and very nice - apparently, he owned an Irish Bar in Amsterdam and got bored of it, so he opened a B&B! Can't beat the location. We rented a couple of bikes (less than $10/day), parked them out front at night, and biked all over town during the day. The rooms are clean, and each comes with it's own bath! Breakfast was good, though the same every morning. All in all, highly recommended to any traveller on a budget!
