We have visited Amsterdam several times before but we enjoyed this visit the most. We are sure that this was due to staying in such a lovely house. It felt like staying with a warm and stylish friend (Lesley has very good taste!) instead of being just another tourist. Coming down for breakfast was a treat. We also very much liked the area - it is quiet but close to a good shopping street, pretty canals and interesting museums. We had a wonderful dinner a few minutes walk away at 'In de Keuken ' (moderate/expensive) but there seemed to be several nice places nearby. Very highly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Aemstelhuys is an 18th Century townhouse (Grade 11 listed) in the center of Amsterdam. Our very quiet street joins the Amstel River to the Utrechtsestraat which has more than 18 cafes, restaurants and bars. The house retains its features and character but has all modern amenities required for the comfortable stay of our guests. ... more less
