Aemstelhuys is ideally situated for exploring Amsterdam and has many good places to eat nearby in the evenings. The house is a traditional Dutch townhouse in a quiet street near the pretty Magere Brug and the museums. (Stairs are steep so probably not suitable for young children.) Lesley is very hospitable and made us extremely welcome. The breakfast provided was excellent and Lesley is a mine of useful knowledge about the city. The rooms were clean and well equipped although the smell of smoke was evident on one evening. We had a very enjoyable visit to Amsterdam and would recommend Aemstelhuys as a comfortable place to stay.
