The Old Lady

Bed & Breakfast in Style

VRBO Review #5673484 John & Mary ( Philadelphia, USA )

We agree with all the prior reviews. Could not have asked for a finer time. It was like staying with a long lost cousin, who respected your privacy. The rooms are completely private and you have your own key. Regarding the location and accommodation - I have traveled extensively over the years and have lived out of Hotel room's. I find them OK for a few nights, Very sterile. Usually a very small room with smaller beds and no kitchen. Unless you reserved a hotel suite $$$$. Check the rates in Amsterdam for this type of accommodation. Not to mention the cost of breakfast in these hotels. Transportation could not have been better. We were a ten minute walk to the Central Station. All the main Trams for Amsterdam begin there. No auto was needed. Could easily walk to many of the different areas of Amsterdam. We would gladly return here. We stayed for a week. If you have Google Earth, check out the area

VRBO Review #5650681 Wonderful Location

Sorry to be late with this review but I felt a need to add it since I depend on these reviews when using this site. We couldn't have picked a better location in Amsterdam. We were 2 blocks from the Anne Frank house and had wonderful restaurants all around us. The apartment itself does not have a kitchen because the owner of the home lives upstairs and shares the kitchen in the back. We had no problem with that since we enjoyed eating out most of the time. The owners were very seldom there and we hardly saw them at all except when Gijs served us a wonderful breakfast. The apartment is right in front with great light and windows, huge bedroom and bath. Plenty of room for my husband and I. We absolutely loved the place. There is no parking close to this area which was pretty much true for all of Amsterdam so having a car is problematic. There are parking garages but are quite far away and expensive. Would highly recommend this place.

VRBO Review #5255330 If you like old world charm, a huge bedroom, and a great host, you'll love this place!

I'm not exactly sure where to start. I read earlier reviews of this place and they were all positive and accurate. However, they missed some of the charm of this place. It looks right over the canal and a beautiful church. If people watching is your thing simply open the windows and you'll see lots of folks walking and riding by. If you want to watch and have privacy simply use the privacy blinds where you'll see out but they can't see in. Also, they have wonderful and huge wooden pocket blinds to tune out all noise and light. The same is true of the bedroom. Huge room with a huge double pocket door for complete isolation. If riding is your thing,Gijs Cortlever will gladly let you use his. They are provided for free. The location is perfect if you want to see all the Amsterdam has to offer. We werre able to see Van Gogh, the Riksmuseum, and the Heineken factory all in a half day. For dinner there are more restaurants close by to be listed here. However Giijs can help, and will help, with all of those things. He's a fantastic host and a very inquisitive and bright individual. He also makes a great breakfast at your time convenience. Also, laundry is included if you need it. Same with WiFi. It's people like Giijs and his great apartment that make me realize that I will likely never stay at a regular hotel again. If you go to Amsterdam and this place is available, take it! Thanks a lot Gijs ... Your B&B is really perfect. We stay only one night but we will keep it in our mind for a long time. What a lovely place for lovers ... The pictures are really conform to reality ... The breakfast was great with everything fresh (bread, orange juice, dutch cheese ...) Gijs arrange for us a special atmosphere with champain and roses and accept to wait us late in the night. I advice you to experiment this place ... Kind Regards David


VRBO Review #5220059 Top location in Amsterdam

One of the most relaxing short stay accommodation we have had. Just perfect! It was hard to leave it to go out sightseeing. Highly recommend it. It was like staying in someone's home but there was complete
privacy. A very comfortable bed and a breakfast that was beautifully presented in the separate dining/kitchen area.


Live Amsterdam like an hipster in the middle of the heaven. The house is soo delightful, decorated like a picture in a magazine, the new bathroom make you feel as comfortable as in a hotel and the view from the living room, on the canal, is just "no-thinkable".... The house is well located, in the middle of Jordaan, the most trendy area, and at 2 minutes from the Central Station & the Cbd. About the Host, Gijs is a wonderful person who is really helpful and also know what is discretion, to make you feel like his home is your home. Plus, He cook breakfast like no one! If you want a wonderful experience, just go! & get a bike ! :) Thomas

A wonderful romantic apartment
We had a fabulous stay at this beautiful apartment. The room was great - very luxurious feel with everything you need. The building has been recently renovated and is in a great location. Gijs was a wonderful host - the breakfasts in particular were delicious! Would thoroughly recommend. Just perfect.
