The Villages, Florida
June 14, 2007
I had never been to Amsterdam and never stayed in a B&B before. After trying to find a Hotel on the net that was reasonable (impossible task), we decided to take a look at a B&B. We wanted something reasonable, in a good location, and clean. After searching the net, we settled on Maes B&B and are we glad we did. The location was great, near the Jordaan area, walking distance to just about everything, Anne Frank Museum, the Red Light District (not too close, but you have to see it) the train station, restaurants, cafes, deli's and shops. It was definitely clean and the breakfast was great.
The owners Ken and Vladimir, make you feel very comfortable and Arnel (the jack of all trades) who make breakfast, clean your room, and make sure your every need is met. Ken and Vladimir were there everyday and made sure if we wanted something or wanted to go somewhere; they had suggestions and recommendations. The room was very clean, nicely decorated, plenty of room for our clothes. Stairs, there are stairs but really no problem (I am 70 and my wife is 68) just consider it exercise. Internet was free and the kitchen was open for your use 24/7. The price was right, the location was great and the staff made it a great vacation. We are already planning on something in 2008 and will definitely stay at Maes B&B again.
