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!!
