This is a lovely canal side house on the Singel canal, perfectly situated to visit so many things in Amsterdam. The hotel is spotlessly clean and everything is beautifully presented, with fresh flowers in the living room and a copious breakfast. All the fittings, such as those found in the bathrooms, are high-end and of superb quality. By now, you must be asking why the low score, so read on....

On arrival we were asked to supply a credit card number and a signature (although we had already paid) in case we broke any rules. There is a 100 Euro fine if you lose a set of keys, another 100 Euros if you lose the additional set they supply you with. And.... 100 Euros if you leave your room untidy and 500 Euros if they have to call out the plumber because you mis-used the bathroom in some way. This latter rule os posted next to the WC so you won't forget.

On reserving you are told you cannot choose a room, one will be allocated on arrival. We put in a special request for a nice room because we were there to celebrate a special birthday. However, we were shown a basement room which was dark with a tiny window, looking onto some steps in front. I asked if I could open the window at night but was told this was not allowed (in fact, it wouldn't open) and we had, instead, to use an electric fan (which simply recirculated air we had already breathed). I asked if we could switch to another room and we were told this was not possible (even though other guests had not yet arrived and therefore presumably their rooms had not yet been allocated).

The staff - I believe they were not the owners - were polite but utterly disinterested and charmless.

This could be such a lovely place to stay so long as your experience isn't like ours.

Our stay at the Maes B&B could not have been better! We were lucky enough to be staying in the one-bedroom, executive apartment overlooking one of the main canals. The building has been recently renovated from top to bottom. All the amenities were modern and the living space was very spacious and clean! The staff was exceedingly friendly and available (if you have any questions, we had many, the best time to ask is in the morning). They gave us some very good restaurant recommendations and some great ideas of how/where to spend our time.
The central location was ideal. It's a 12 minute walk from the train station and numerous restaurants and bars are an easy 7 to 10 minute walk (or less!). We will be returning to Amsterdam and there is no question we will be staying at Maes B&B when we do!

Room Tip: Executive apartment has 4 massive windows facing one of the main canals. Lots of light, lots of spac...

Stayed here for 3 nights in the garden room. Everything was fantastic. the house is beautiful, room was great and with very modern amenities. Bed was super comfortable and nights were quiet.

Breakfast was out of this world. If it was a person, my wife would have left me for it in an instant.

well deserving of its reputation on here.

I stayed in the Garden Room for three nights in July/August, A double en suite bedroom overlooking neighbourhood gardens. Very quiet and restful. Comfortable night sleep. Typical Amsterdam architecture. Everything is thoughtfully prepared for the visitor to Amsterdam. The common areas are spacious and welcoming. It was a great location and nearby restaurants were very good. The information given beforehand about car parking and transport was extremely helpful. Breakfast is very good and plentiful.

Room Tip: We liked the Garden room. It is on two floors - the upper being the en suite.

The B&B is located in several locations. We were right on Singel canal so it was always easy to find your way back (although you can't see the canal from the room we were in). The B&B is just lovely. We had a room with two twin beds and private bathroom. The room was comfortable, bathroom spacious and it was very clean. The host was very friendly. The breakfasts were ok - sometimes by the time we got down, several items were already gone (my son just loved the croissants so was disappointed that they were gone by the time we ate.) The location is great - you are close to many of the major attractions and it is only a short walk from the center of town and bus. We did not get to meet the owners (they were out of town) so that was a bit disappointing since we heard they were great about giving tips on where to go. I was traveling with my son (22) - he loved location too and wondered why anyone would stay in a hotel when they could stay at a B&B (his first time at one). Note that the host was only there for a short time in the morning so do not expect to be entertained by the host. You do get their number to call if you should have any issues. This B&B was recommended by a friend and I would recommend it to anyone I know who needed a place "like home" to stay. While there was no great view from our room - we overlooked a small courtyard and it was quiet. I know that on my next trip to this wonderful city - I'll be staying here again.

Fantastic location-easy walk to Centraal Station, Anne Frank House and tramline, with a variety of nearby restaurants. Breakfast was great (who doesn't love freshly baked croissants), owners and staff friendly and engaging. Need screens on the guest room windows so as to not provide an all night buffet to the voracious mosquitos. Rugs could use a deep cleaning. Would definitely stay again
