I won't reiterate what others have documented before as I found the Maes to be exactly as reviewed by most others- Great location, decent service- only decent because I had hoped to meet Vlad or Ken, but they were out of town- the fill in staff was very attentive in their absence.
Neat street, great kitchen access to stock your own goodies if so inclined.
Only downsides- stairs could be a problem for some, but the staff insisted on hauling our luggage to our room, so getting yourself up and down the stairs was the only chore, but commom to most other stairs in Amsterdam we saw. Also, the temps were hot, and we needed to leave the windows open, and we had street noise deep into the night, but certainly not a bad reflection on the property.
All in all, a fine location in a nice "apartment" in a great city. Spend some time on the porch above the kitchen as well- very peaceful.
