“Great location in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

We stayed in their other location:
Quartier Neuf’ is located at Wolvenstraat 10 on the lovely Nine Streets in the heart of Amsterdam.

This small B&B was exactly what we were looking for:
1. A clean room, newly and nicely furnished, with a good shower
2. In the heart of the city, ( the Nine Streets - Canal Area )
3. A room where we could experience the flavor of being in Amsterdam.
4. Near restaurants, shops, museums, and the canals of Amsterdam
This was not the Raddison or Marriott hotel but just what we were looking for, a small single room in a wonderful neighborhood, although up a very steep, but manageable, set of stairs. Vera and Jasper were the congenial hosts.

A delicious complete breakfast was brought to our room each morning, along with good advice on local restaurants and things to do in the area.

This was a perfect Amsterdam experience.

Stayed April 2014, travelled solo

We stayed at the Eelhouse in October last year on our first trip to Amsterdam. We should have thanked Vera and Jasper before now, because they were the perfect hosts. Although a B&B, you have your own entrance to the building, which makes it feel more like an apartment with the luxury of a healthy, generous breakfast delivered to your room. The complimentary wine, beer and juice in the fridge is a lovely touch.
The Joordan district is perfect, great bars, independent shops and small galleries. Just ask Vera and Jasper for information, they are very helpful and knowledgeable. A wonderful stay!

If you are looking for a place to stay in Amsterdam that is different than the usual hotel, try The Eelhouse. Located in The Joordan within walking distance of Dam Square and the Anne Frank House, The Eelhouse was great. We stayed for 3 days in February while traveling to Tanzania for a safari and were completely satisfied. This B&B is in an old Amsterdam house built in the 1600's. Vera runs the Eelhouse while her husband, Jasper, runs another B&B nearby. A very filling breakfast is brought to your room and complimentary beer, wine, juice and water in a mini-fridge was unexpected. Vera answered all our questions (no matter what time of day it was). She recommended several restaurants nearby and they turned out to be super. We definitely would stay at The Eelhouse again if we ever return to Amsterdam

Room Tip: If you have any problems climbing very steep, narrow stair, ask for a lower room.

We stayed at the Eelhouse in November, and loved it. The room is clean, pretty, cozy and the views out of the windows are spectacular! The breakfast was great, and like others have said, there's enough for breakfast and lunch! The complimentary wine, beer, juice and water in the mini fridge are an extra nice touch, and they are even replenished daily.

Vera and Jasper (and their kitties!) are both very friendly and helpful. The B&B and the Jordaan neighborhood are great, and we would definitely stay here again.

This has to be one of the best B&B We have ever stayed in. Vera and Jasper were perfect hosts made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. Wholesome breakfast in your room each morning. Beer juice and wine in the fridge at no extra cost also gave great information on where to go and what to do in Amsterdam. The room was cosy, clean and bright(January is cold in Amsterdam but our room was so cosy and warm). The location could not be bettered Jordaan has a real bohemian feel to it and its great to mix with the locals who are really friendly.So a big thanks to Vera and Jasper for an excellent stay at the Eelhouse. Highly recommended

Room Tip: If you dont like climbing steep stairs request a room on the first floor.

A great getaway in the fun city of Amsterdam. The owners are perfect hosts, the B&B is clean, cute, reasonably priced and located within walking distance of everything Amsterdam has to offer, yet just enough away from the center (Joordan) to make you feel more like a local than a tourist. It is right down from the Ann Frank house, perfect for getting there before the huge lines arrive and easy to hop on a canal boat from there if you want to cruise the canals. Everything from bike rentals and grocery stores to restaurants and other famous sites are at a stone's throw as well. Highly recommended.

We stayed for four days at Eelhouse and really enjoyed our time in Amsterdam!
The owner Vera made us feel very welcome, with good guidance about the city (maps, info, things to do) and great breakfasts every morning.

Location is perfect, near central station, walking distance, and well connected to public transportation (trams, bus)
Room was clean, spacious and comfortable.
We would definitly recommend Eelhouse, because it offers all the required services and gives you the authentic taste of Amsterdam in the area of Jordaan.
