Lesley is very welcoming and has a wealth of knowledge about Amsterdam. We were made to feel very welcome in her much loved home. Rooms are a good standard, we stayed in the basement double room with it's own front door which adds to your experience. It was great to stay in a historical building on a cool Amsterdam street. Make sure you purchase a map from Lesley it is the best you can get and is easy to navigate with.
Location is great, easy walking distance to all main attractions and also easy walk to trams if you prefer to do it that way. It is very quiet at night and is close to the best bars and restaurants in town.
We would return without a doubt and would recommend this as the best base to explore Amsterdam.
- 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
