“Wonderful place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

We spent 3 nights in the room in the Old Lady and everything went perfect. Double shower is fun and unusual.
Service, cleanness, comfort, quiet, location, the place is perfect.
The breakfasts are delicious and huge !

This B&B was wonderful. It couldn't have been any more convenient to everything we wanted to do. It was a short walk from where our river cruise docked and equally as short to the train station where we caught the train to the airport when we left. The room was great; clean & comfortable. Gijs was an exceptional host. The only tough part of this B&B (as with other canal houses in Amsterdam) the stairs are very narrow and steep. It can present a challenge if you need to negotiate your luggage. For us it was no problem as Gijs carried our luggage up. We were departing very early a few days later, and Gijs made it a point to get up in order to take our luggage down. Wonderful service. And the breakfast was also very good; he even offered to cook eggs or what we would like. There was plenty of slices of meat and cheese; fruit, yogurt, a croissant and coffee! One morning he even made the small Dutch poffertjes; very tasty!! We highly recommend this B&B. We hope we can get back to Amsterdam, and this is certainly where we would try to stay.

This small family run B&B is within a few minutes walk of Central Station, along side the canal. Gijs went out to get gluten free items for breakfast, asking if there was anything I especially wanted. Breakfast is freshly cooked when you get up. Very quiet and comfortable, big double shower, free minibar. Everything else said by all other reviewer agreed with.

I'm just back from a mon-fri in The Old Lady and I could'nt fault the place. The room was beautiful, lovely clean crisp linen sheets on the bed, very clean and great spacious bathroom all decorated to a lovely standard. Great location just 5mins walk from central station and right on a canal side. The owner Gijs is very welcoming and friendly and makes a lovely breakfast in the morning.

I stayed here late June and what a place! Exquisite decor, Gijs (owner) is a warm, welcoming host. We were welcomed with a complimentary bottle of fizz which was great after a long journey. Five minute walk to central station so great location. Rooms are exceptionally clean and tasteful. Double shower and sink in huge bathroom was ace. Comfy bed with built in TV. Yummy breakfast with the best pancakes and strawberries I've tasted! Overall wicked stay, definitely visiting again if back in Amsterdam :)

Took the ground floor appartment and why stay anywhere else. Handy location to the old city, railway station and numerous good restaurants. Plenty of room with a large very comfortable bedroom, new bathroom and adjoining sitting room all included in the appartment. Breakfast room a couple of steps away and open to guests 24hrs. Breakfast more than adequate. Host couldnt have been more helpful. Highly recommended.

My wife and I have just returned from a 4 night break in Amsterdam and we had the pleasure of staying at The Old Lady, a canalside house very near to the Central Station which we found most convenient. We had a large bedroom to the rear of the property,very quiet and overlooking the garden. Spotlessly clean,with a large double bed and a delightful bathroom which had a large double shower and twin wash basins. Breakfast was very good with a good choice of cold meats and cheese and should you wish, eggs various and poffertjes. We were well looked after by Gjis the owner and others and would have no hesitation in staying here again should we find ourselves back in Amsterdam.
