My husband and I stayed at Amsterdam Lodge in May of this year and enjoyed our stay very much. It is a great location...very close to markets, the Centraal train station and comfortable walking distance to all the major musems and attractions. Jordaan was an interesting neighbourhood with plenty of great local restaurants and one-of-kind shops. Our hosts, Bas and Anita, were fun, entertaining and very helpful and have thoughtfully supplied many guide books for the guests use, both in the common area and the rooms. I have just a couple of comments I'd like to share. First of all there is no sign, so do not be concerned when you arrive at the address and find no indication of the bed and breakfast. Just be sure to let them know when you are arriving so the hosts can meet you there. Also, as is very common to Amsterdam, there is a very narrow, steep flight of stairs to the rooms so I would hesitate to recommend this B&B to elderly travellers. Although we had reservations for the Ivy Room, we were moved to the Red Room which, although clean, comfortable and apparently slightly larger, faced the street (and thus was a bit noisy with late-night revellers returning home) and had a separate bath. I would try for a different room next time but would happpily recommend this B&B to friends.
