We just returned from 4 wonderful days in Amsterdam. Maes B&B was just great! The service is perfect, Vlad and Ken were both there to greet us and welcome us to their terrific establishment.
We arrived very early in the morning upon which we were seated at the table and provided a great breakfast and excellent coffee. Every morning the table was full with breads, jams, ham and cheese, nutella, fruit etc. It was great and the people who were staying there were quite friendly too.
We stayed in a a queen room that was so comfortable (a rare find in Europe to have a queen sized bed). We had the room with the fabulous Italian tiled and outfitted bathroom. You had to climb some stairs to get there but it was worth it. The nice surprise in this bathroom was the jacuzzi. We used it and it was so nice to relax after long days walking and touring the city.
The staff is so nice and helpful. Jason was there for the most part and he was so attentive in the mornings.
Vlad gave us maps and between he and Jason they helped us make our way around the city. They have an assortment of books to learn more about different attractions etc. Lots to do in this city.
There is a line of shops outside the B&B that are really quite terrific, one store has all sorts of ecclectic gadjets and unique gifts. We enjoyed it. There is an awesome Thai restaurant right next door. Some of the best Thai food we have ever had. Vlad also suggested a great restaurant that we enjoyed so much. It had the best ribs I have ever had.
There are no locks on the doors to the rooms at the B&B but I never felt uncomfortable about this at all. All our belongings and valuables were extremely safe. Our privacy was respected as well.
Like the title says, this felt like home away from home. I highly recommend this B&B. We intend to stay there again if our travels get us back to Amsterdam. I really hope we do. I would be thrilled to stay in the same room again.
I can't imagine it could get any better than this if you enjoy B&B's.
Go to Maes - you won't regret the decision.
