Our group of 6 recently stayed @ Maes -Heren B&B in Amsterdam. There are at least 2 [or more] separate houses and we were @ Heren. We had 3 ensuite rooms on the garden level. Two rooms had skylights, which opened and closed remotely, so no need to worry if it began to rain, as well as small, enclosed private patios, open to the sky.The 3rd room was on the street side with a large window, due to it's age[ house was built in the 1700's] could not be opened, but allowed a lot of light to enter. There was A/C throughout. Rooms and baths were nicely equipped.A very pleasant dining room, where a generous breakfast, fresh fruit, cheeses, ham,a variety of breads, juice, choice of coffee was served. On the other side of the house was a large sunny living room with floor to ceiling windows, facing the canal. Another kitchen, fully equipped, to be used by the guests,Coffee, tea and snacks available and guests could prepare their own meals. Jason the "house person" was a very pleasant young man who prepared the breakfast and was available for tourist advise. Ex., a special rate for taxi to the airport, special rate for evening canal boat trip etc. The location of HEREN was very good. We found AMSTERDAM very walkable. We did not meet Ken, but found Vlad to be an excellent host. Our only suggestion, IF you do not like to be GARDEN LEVEL, state this when making reservation. There are rooms on the top floors, but they were occupied and we did not venture there. As with houses in AMSTERDAM, stairs are narrow and there are LOTS of them!
