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...

My husband and I spent 3 wonderful nights in Lesley's beautiful house. The house is ideally situated for trams or walking to major attractions. Breakfast is fantastic and nothing is too much trouble to Lesley. She is a proverbial fountain of knowledge and made our stay very enjoyable. We would have no hesitation in returning to Aemstelhuys .highly recommended.

Aemstelhuys B&B is a beautiful historical building in a quiet street, yet only a short walk from bars, restaurants, Prinsengracht and other Amsterdam attractions. Lesley made us all feel very welcome and gave us lots of useful information all of which made my 50th birthday weekend even more enjoyable.

Lesley is very welcoming and has a wealth of knowledge about Amsterdam. We were made to feel very welcome in her much loved home. Rooms are a good standard, we stayed in the basement double room with it's own front door which adds to your experience. It was great to stay in a historical building on a cool Amsterdam street....

We spent a great time at Lesley's place. The room was decorated with taste and very clean. The location is perfect: it is in the center but still very calm in the evening. And the breakfast was awsome! Very tasty with lot of home-made products. Aemstelhuys B&B is definitly an excellent place to stay!

“Like most places in Amsterdam (especially considering it's a historic property), the stairs are quite steep, so be mindful of that.”
