Cozy home ambience...

In the center, only minutes away from the museums and within walking distance from all major sights and nightlife spots, yet in a quiet residential area: Maes Bed and Breakfast.

The private house, dating from the eighteenth century, has recently been renovated.

The guest rooms, located on the first and second floor, are quaint and comfortable. They are decorated with an accent n a cozy home 'ambience.'

Awaken to the smell of fresh croissants, which are part of the extended continental breakfast. Complimentary coffee and tea are available throughout the day in the guest kitchen on the first floor.

We're located in a quaint street between two canals which are the Herengracht and the Keizersgracht.

We are conveniently near major tram-lines and only steps away from the Anne Frank House and the Jordaan, which is famous for its variety of shops, restaurants and galleries.

The major museums that are within walking distance are:

  • The Stedelijk
  • The Van Gogh
  • The Rijksmuseum

As well as the street markets the Albert Cuyp, Noorder Market, the trendy shopping street PC Hooftstraat and numerous nightlife spots.

We are only steps away from the Anne Frank House and the Jordaan, which is famous for its variety of shops, restaurants and galleries.

Rooms:

The rooms are decorated with a character of their own. Both the Yellow and Red Rooms are located on the street side and have bathrooms ensuite. You can enjoy the view of the boutiques and shoppers during the day and the serenity of the city at night.

The rooms are famous for the king size beds. After a wonderful nights' sleep, awaken to the sound of birds and the smell of fresh coffee and croissants.

Apartments:

Apart from the Bed and Breakfast accommodation, we can also provide an apartment for you. We can offer a choice of an apartment in the Herenstraat, where the bed and breakfast is located, or in the Reguliersdwarsstraat alternatively.

Nicolaas Maes:

We have named the place after Nicolaas Maes, one of the famous Dutch painters from the 17th century and a pupil of Rembrandt. Some of his work can be seen in the Rijksmuseum.

Your Hosts:

Ken Harrison, who grew up in Hawaii and California, has been a European citizen for more than 17 years. He is a professional chef, with pastries as his specialty. Ken will be your host for most of the time.

His partner, Vladimir Melnikov, a Russian living in Holland for over 5 years. He is a professional modern dancer and an atlas of information on the performing Arts here in Holland and Europe. You will see him quite often in the house.

Directions:

By Car:

  • From A10 (Ring Zuid) take exit S103.
  • Take a right at the bottom of the exit.
  • Pass the first stoplight and keep following the route S103 Centrum. (You are on the Haarlemmerweg).
  • You will come to a large crossing with a city Port on the left across the bridge, here you need to cross the bridge and turn left behind the city Port and again right.
  • Continue straight on over the flyover, at the stoplights you need to take a right onto the Singel, continue down the canal until you get to the Blauwburgwal.
  • Here turn right and at the end turn left over the bridge and immediately turn right over the other bridge into the Herenstraat.
  • We are at #26.

Please note: There are parking meters in the street, everyday 9 am and 11 pm.

From Schiphol Airport:

  • Take the train to the Central Station (approximately 15 minutes).

From the Central Station:

  • Take tram #2, 5, 13,or 17 departing in front of Central Station.
  • Exit at the the first stop and cross over the street to the right into the Korte Lijnbaanssteeg.
  • Walk straight on until you see the Singel canal, cross over the bridge and continue along the Blauwburgwal.
  • At the end cross the bridge (corner Herengracht/Blauwburgwal) and continue into the Herenstraat.
  • We are at #26.

Some Tips On Public Transport:

The not-so-wonderful system of strippencards (Dutch: strippenkaart) pays your way on the bus or tram. We will not try to bore you with the system, but this is what you need to know if you travel this way to buy a strippencard at the railway station (other typical places where you can are newsstands and Albert Heyn supermarkets). It is much cheaper than if you buy individual tickets on the tram. Get a stamp from the yellow machines you find in the tram, or from the driver. If you travel from Central station to Maes Bed and Breakfast stamp two strips per person.

Please: watch out for pickpockets

Even though Amsterdam is very friendly and safe, we do have our share of pickpockets. The professional ones know where most visitors arrive and concentrate their 'business' on just those stations and in those trams which we just advised you to use. So please keep all your important stuff out of sight and out of reach!
