Stayed in a 2 bedroom apt rental from Maes B&B. We liked the area. Easy to walk to most places. The apt is located about a 5 minute walk from the B&B. Ken and Vlad were great to deal with, responding to all our quesitons in advance and providing photos of the aprtament prior to renting. They also gave great advice on places to eat and visit. The apt had many travel books and lots of info on AMS. The apt is up a steep flight of stairs, so not a good bet for anyone with difficulty walking up steep steps. On the first floor is a living room and kitchen with a bath with toilet and sink. There are 3 large windows in the living room with great views of the canal. Furniture was fine, nothing fancy, but comfortable. There was a sofa bed, 2 chairs, TV, cd player and books. Kitchen had basics and was ok for us. We only ate breakfast in and had wine, cheese etc in the evenings. The bedrooms were up another winding, steep staircase. The front bedroom also had nice views of the canals and was a bit larger than the 2nd bedroom. Both bedrooms had twin beds pushed together at our request. Between the bedrooms was the shower and sink. No toilet on the second level which was ok, but not the perfect set-up. Rates for the rental worked out to be less than 2 average priced hotel rentals. Was nice to have the living space to sit around. Defintely worth checking out for amoderately priced apt rental.
