The Eel House is in a great location, within walking distance of Central Station and all of the major Amsterdam attractions. Vera and Jasper were extremely helpful, and Vera's breakfasts were a great way to start the day.

streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is

We stayed there last August. They do not have bicycles, but you can find the rental stores all over Amsterdam. I remember there was one about 3 blocks away. The Dam Square is exactly a 15 minute walk from The Eelhouse.

Yes, It's in the center, very close to Anne Frank house (3 minutes walking). You can rent bikes just around the corner. With your bike you can easily get everywhere!
