We stayed at the Eelhouse in April ´14 on our first trip together to Amsterdam. We, honestly, have got nothing but good things to say about this B&B. It is extremely well situaded, a less than 10 minutes walk from Westerkerk, which is next door to Anne Frank´s house. In 15 minutes one can make his way to the very heart of the city.
We were greated by the charming Vera who showed us to our room, a cute penthouse room, perfect for a short stay. The entrance is private, so you can come in as late as you like without fear of disturbing anyone. The room itself, while small, is charming, clean, has an ensuite bathroom, a minibar that is refilled every day at no extra cost, a kettle that one can use to brew tea or coffe (again, on the house, no limits) and a little table where we would be treated every day to a copious, delicious breakfast that it normally got us through the day and then some.
Now, considering the pain the access stairs are -63 steps of wooden, uneven original staircase-, the fact that Vera would come every day all the way to our room carrying a tray with our breakfast just shows the lenght they go to ensure that your stay is as comfortable and nice as possible.
There are nice cafés and pubs around, and a really good Thai restaurant, Kinaree, that we particularly enjoyed.
Would I stay there again? Definitely. Would I recommend this place to everyone I know? Absolutely.
