“Beautiful little gem in the heart of Amsterdam.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2011

My husband and I stayed here from May 31 to June 3rd. The B & B is located right in the heart of Nieuwmarkt Square, near many attractions and the Red Light District. It was extremely easy to get to it from the Main Central Station and during our stay, we rented bikes one day and walked everywhere else. We stayed in the "Room" right above the Cotton Club. The room is extremely clean, bright and airy and beautifully decorated. The view onto the Square right from your bed is amazing!! There is a small kitchenette in the room with fridge, sink, kettle, coffee maker, dishes...which was really handy; and a small and lovely eating area. The bathroom is right outside your door and shared with the owner. Of course, it would be nice to have your own private bath, but we had no problems sharing the bathroom with the owners and rarely ran into them. Daniel, the owner, was extremely friendly, and more than willing to chat, help with anything and provide suggestions for things to do, etc....

The only suggestions I have is that the breakfast consist of a bit more selection - it is essentially just breads and cheeses. In addition, because the room is over a club, it can be a tad noisy at nights, but we both went to bed with earplugs in and honestly had no problems sleeping.... the bed is really comfortable!!! Other than that however, we had an awesome stay at the Inn Old Amsterdam. We did the Day Tour to Zaanse Schans, Marken, and Volendam and highly recommend it!! Also, the Van Gogh Museum and going for a bike ride in Vondelpark is a MUST!!! My husband and I will definitely be back to Amsterdam and hopefully will be able to stay at the Inn Old Amsterdam again!!

Nikki was more than accommodating to every request we had. The property is exceptionally clean and well kept; beds and linens are very comfortable. Location cannot be beat; the Inn is centrally located above the Cotton Club although above the club noise is not an issue. The Inn is difficult to locate so make note of the Cotton club, when trying to find. The hidden location gives the feel you are staying in a private apartment. Our next visit to Amsterdam we will be sure to stay at Inn Old Amsterdam.

Only warning the stairs and steep and plentiful.

We rented the loft for 4 nights prior to Easter. It was so much fun !!! LOTS of steep wooden stairs, but then, what else is there to expect in "Old Amsterdam"? jaja. Two-storey flat, with MANY full-screen windows (we love light, so for us it was great!). Daniel was very helpful, attentive to every detail. Very nice continental breakfast with local cookies and pastry. Opposite a very fanciful square (every day a new move in it !) on the border of the amazing red-light district. Walking distance to everything, with a supermarket across the street and a fridge in the room... will definitively stay here again next time we visit Amsterdam.

I decided to take my boyfriend away for his birthday and this place was the icing on the cake. We stayed in the studio - which is a beautiful space complete with a basic kitchen.

Daniel the owner is really friendly and helpful - he sat down with us and ran through a map at the start of our trip and made it very clear we could contact him at any time if we needed any help.

As mentioned in other reviews the breakfast is good and the location - perfect.
A deposit of half the cost of the stay is required for the room – do not let this put you off staying in this beautiful place.

Enjoy!

My husband and I stay for two nights in April and we found the Inn Old Amsterdam a perfect place to stay at the beginning of our honeymoon in Europe.

The location was excellent, facing onto Nieumarket, close promixity to all the sights, restaurants, cafes, etc. We stayed over the weekend and we did not find it noisy at all even though our room was above a cafe. It actually was a good thing because we were able to have a nightcap!

Our room was clean and comforting. I am always pleased when a room uses good linens, fluffy pillows and a comfy bed- this place had all three!

My husband and I are planning on staying here again when we visit Amsterdam again!

We have just returned from a trip to the Old Inn. We stayed over 4 days and we went to the Queens Celebration. Which was amazing to see.
Where do i start about the Old Inn. It was in the perfect position for walking everywhere. Trams not needed, just a good pair of walking shoes. Daniel and Nicky were lovely. So kind and friendly. The apartment was PERFECT. Well equipped and the bed was really comfortable, unlike other places we have stayed at.
The breakfast that Daniel and Nicky provide was perfect. You help yourself and take it back to your apartment. There is no time scale for the breakfast, its always out and that was perfect for us.
Daniel was more than happy for us to stay a few hours longer in the apartment due to our flight not leaving till later afternoon at no extra charge.
The only issue i found with the Old Inn were the stairs. You have to be really careful coming up and down them, they are VERY steep. and would of like blinds in the kitchen for privacy from the local residents. But this isn't stopping up going again in August with friends. I would HIGHLY Recommend this place to anyone, apart from people who find it difficult with stairs.
It's a little gem inside Amsterdam.

Room cozy, well equipped and clean. My teenage daughter and I agreed we had the best location in amsterdamn. It wasn't filled with tourists. Breakfast was delicious. It is an easy walk from the train station, although we didn't realise this and took a taxi on arrival. The only difficulty was locating the front door the first time. The It is tucked in next to the cafe and painted the same colour as the cafe so had to isolate. Ask Daniel to give you directions and pointers and you should have no trouble.
