Stayed in the lower room which is huge. Beautifully decorated and appointed. Gijs was away but her fill-in Ray was wonderful with nothing too much trouble. Fantastic position on a canal near central Amsterdam and the station. Highly recommended.

I cannot fault this venue from the booking process to arriving early to be told we could have our room as vacant now to being able to leave our cases until it was time to leave. The bedroom is as shown and the bed is so comfy. Hubbie enjoyed the football on the TV. Breakfast was excellent and Gils was...

This is a b&b property in an old beautiful canal house. The house is on Singel canal walking distance to everything. We were able to use the facilities within the house eg kitchen, laundry. Our host Kurt was great nothing was any trouble for him. The photo is a true impression of the room.

Location was excellent, beautiful apartment in old style, (we were on street level) with two big rooms and a modern bathroom. Separate living room, two fire places (!) and small artefacts which gave a homey feeling. Gijs was very acomodating and breakfast lovely. Perfect for couple or family of three.

We started a three-week anniversary celebration tour of Europe in Amsterdam and I am so glad we chose the first floor apartment at The Old Lady. It felt like staying at a friend's house. My favorite part of the space are the lovely paintings of Gigs' family that are scattered about. Gijs is the most charming, accommodating host one could...
