“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

After walking out of another hotel and desperate to find somewhere for the night I remembered hearing good things about Mae's and a call to Ken and Vlad saved our first trip to Amsterdam. They found myself (and daughter) accommodation in one of the apartments for the first night and although it was latish when we arrived Vlad met us and ensured we had everything we needed. The apartment was superb, spacious and immaculate with a small patio and canal view. The second night we stayed in the B&B house which was also a delight to stay in. The location of both was perfect and Vlad gave us excellent tips and advice and a lovely breakfast. We look forward to returning - for a longer stay.

Stayed April 2014, travelled with family

My wife & I (mid 60's)stayed here for 5 nights (3/2014) and you could not find a better location...15 minutes from the train station and 10 from Dam Sq. We had a very quit and large room on the 2nd fl (rear) at the Singel Canal location. We could also could share a good size living room and complete kitchen at the same location on the first floor. Breakfasts were great and substantial. The B & B was immaculate, quit, comfortable and filled with beautiful plants. All the staff were extremely helpful especially Valad, who recommended several restaurants in the area that were excellent. We ate at Seasons 2x, Cafe Deriger, Ko Chang and DeJaren Cafe all very good. We would highly recommend Maes B & B

This meticulous B&B is located in the quiet Jordaan section of Amsterdam. We spent 3 nights celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary at Maes and were graciously met by Jason, who showed us our beautiful room located in the rear of the house. Our room was comfortable, but some might find the bathroom location of this room to be a challenge as you climb steep stairs to reach it (the toilet is room level). We did not mind, and the bathroom was enormous with a large soaking tub and shower. The only other thing to note about the bathroom are the tricky faucets, which Jason was patient to provide a tutorial. The rest of the house was charming: a vintage kitchen where a delectable breakfast was served, thoughtful flowers throughout, and a large, sunny living room to relax. Vlad was helpful in explaining local sights and restaurant recommendations. Maes is located within walking distance to many major sights, and the tram stops nearby to take you to spots a bit further away. We would highly recommend this charming and well-run B&B!

Amsterdam is a lovely city, the Jordaan is the loveliest pat. Great location, excellent accommodation and a perfect host. Difficult to imagine a better place to stay. Thank you Vlad.... Trev and Sarah x

Location is important and this location is outstanding. Surrounded by small restaurants and within easy walking distance of more. Outside the honky tonk of the tourist areas on a quiet street. The stairs up are Amsterdam narrow and a challenge at the end of the day. Our room with sitting room and bathroom was spacious. We walked all over Amsterdam, of course, and found no better street. Vlad is a most gracious host and their staff equally so. We will be back if the tulips bloom again.

Room Tip: Up is upstairs but best views of the 'hood.

We stayed 2 nights in a b&b room prior to our bike & barge tour & then 5 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment - both in the same building facing the singel canal. Both were excellent. The b&b room was comfortable with a sumptuous breakfast provided by the owner. You also get access to a communal kitchen & comfortable lounge area. Our apartment was on the 2nd floor & was spacious with modern facilities while retaining the character of the building. The owners obviously take great pride in the building & everything is kept in tip top shape. The apartment has a kitchen & lounge overlooking the singel canal. The building's location is ideal - a quiet spot yet close to central - approx 10 minute walk. Restaurants & cafés are closely. We visited the markets plus restaurants & cafe recommended by Vlad & all were excellent. The markets held on sat were great as we bought food to self cater - wonderful cheeses, slices of quiche, white asparagus to cook up (make sure you read up on how to cook white asp on the net before trying it). The apartment is 10 mins walk to Dam Square & the major shopping area. Highly recommended provided you can get up & down steep stairs. They are everywhere in Amsterdam including the b&b and apartment. Pack light & don't bring large heavy suitcases as you won't be able to get them up & down the stairs. Also, some train stations don't have lifts so you may have to carry your bags to get down to the platform, etc. We travelled to Europe for 6 weeks from Australia & had carry on luggage only for the trip out. We had previously travelled with huge heavy bags however light is definitely easier!
