This was our third trip to Aemstelhuys Bed & Breakfast. As always we received a super welcome from Lesley who is an amazing hostess and is incredibly welcoming. Lesley is happy to provide lots of information about the wonderful city of Amsterdam and the pleasure is that you get an insight into the dutch way of life, which you would never experience in a large soulless hotel elsewhere in the city (we know this as we have experienced it first hand!) The accommodation is immaculate, beautifully clean and has everything a visitor to Amsterdam would require. On our last visit to Amsterdam, Lesley very kindly provided evening meals which were delicious and cooked to perfection. We have noted from a previous comment on this site that there is a cat....yes there is ...but he is kept out of the areas visitors are using and is no problem at all...in fact he is quite delightful!
My husband and I would wholeheartedly recommend this welcoming bed and breakfast to anyone wanting a unique, relaxing, exciting and altogether pleasurable experience when visiting Amsterdam. Our only negitive comment would be that ....we had to come home and could not stay longer! Enjoy!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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
