This is a very comfortable bed and breakfast. Lesley is the perfect hostess helping you in every way. It is central and close to some very delicious restaurants, Harmsen being one of them. We had the top bedroom, which I agree with someone else, has some very narrow stairs so small light suitcases, but hey you are in a beautiful...

We had a wonderful time in Lesley's house, she made everything as easy as possible. The house is a typical 17th century house situated right in the town center. It couldn't be better ! We really enjoyed the breakfast which was made from home baked patisseries, and the bedroom it the basement is very quite and nicely decorated. Thanks Lesley

My ancient father and I stayed at the Aemstelhuys B&B in February 2014 for three nights and were delighted with it. Lesley made everything as easy as possible and was generous in every way from the home-baked breakfast to the top tips and the loan of umbrellas (thankfully not needed) and guide books. She pointed us in the right direction...
