There's nothing I like more when I travel than finding a delightful place to stay. Somewhere the locals would like. Generously helpful hosts. A little bit quirky. Clean and comfortable. An authentic base from which to discover the city's hidden secrets... Eelhouse is all that and more.
From the first email confirming my reservation, Vera went out of her way to make my stay perfect. She had checked my flight details so knew I was delayed, she delivered delicious breakfasts fresh from the local bakery to my room at a time of my choosing, she left free wine and other refreshments in the fridge, she gave helpful restaurant recommendations, she researched train times to a neighbouring town where I was attending a friend's wedding, and she was always happy to chat like an old friend.
The B&B itself is tucked away on a quite corner of the Jordaan, so although you have the best of Amsterdam on your doorstep it is also lovely and peaceful at nights. And what a comfortable bed! Waking to the dual aspect morning I felt more rested than I have in a long time. Other reviewers have pointed out the steep stairs, but quite honestly that just adds to the charm and authenticity of the old gabled building. And it is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean.
My next trip's B&B has a lot to live up to...
