We stayed at the Quartier Neuf in August. The Quartier Neuf has no website and I found it when I tried to get rooms at the Eel House. Do not let the fact that it does not have have a website put you off, it is the real deal. It is perfectly located in the Jordaan district in the heart of Amsterdam - walking distance to everything. The stairs are very, very steep, and they do squeak, but that is typical in these beautiful old buildings. Two rooms are on the 2nd floor and 2 on the third. They are much larger than I was expecting and so nice, clean and perfect for those wanting to experience living in Amsterdam (vs staying in a hotel). Beds are comfortable and although they are called 'double' they are more like USA queen size. The rooms comes with perfect amenities - blow dryer, shampoo/conditioner, microwave, mini frig, coffee pot, clock, etc. Jaspar even stocks the frig with a complimentary bottle of wine, a few beers, water and juice!
One thing about the bathroom, it is small. The sink is tiny (like a bar sink). The shower does not have a door so it can get a good portion of the bathroom floor wet. This was not a problem for us though, it only added to the special character of this place.
Jaspar, the owner, is the best. One thing to note, there is no signage to this charming place, so it can be easy to just drive by it. But, there was Jaspar waiting on the street to meet, greet and check us in. He made us feel very welcome. We booked 3 out of the 4 rooms there and they were all decorated the same and just perfect. One room has a 'double' bed plus a futon which was great for my 2 grown up sons sharing a room, they were very comfortable. My husband and I had a room on the 2nd floor, facing the back and it was very quiet.
Breakfast comes every morning to your room. We let Jaspar know what time we wanted and there it was. Great food - hard boiled eggs, fresh pastries, meats and cheeses, yogurts, toast. The typical dutch breakfast and it was wonderful.
I cannot recommend this highly place enough to anyone traveling to Amsterdam and wanting to experience living like the dutch. We all felt very safe here. Perfect communication, helpful tips, super pleasant, excellent. It was a great 2 nights, like being at home... only you don't have to make your own bed or your own breakfast! A million thank you's Jaspar!
