We were delighted to stay in an authentic Dutch house, filled with charm and a wonderful hostess. Lesley shared many fabulous stories as she served up a delicious breakfast every morning. Her personal décor and touches were everywhere. Lesley even went out of her way to pack up a breakfast to go on one day when we had a particularly early start. The room on the second floor was comfortable and very clean, although the narrow stairs to get there were tricky to navigate and the bathroom was small. The location was ideal because it was on a quiet, side street, not far from the hustle of everyday Amsterdam. We would definitely recommend staying here.

- Aemstelhuys is an 18th Century townhouse (Grade 11 listed) in the center of Amsterdam. Our very quiet street joins the Amstel River to the Utrechtsestraat which has more than 18 cafes, restaurants and bars. The house retains its features and character but has all modern amenities required for the comfortable stay of our guests. ... more less
