How to get to the Eelhouse

Although the Eelhouse is not far from Central Station, it’s always the question ‘How to get to the Eelhouse from here’? Well there are three simple and excellent ways:

Walking to the B&B is nice and gives you an idea about the surroundings of the area. The walk will take you about 20 minutes. That is, if you know where to go! Therefore we will provide you with clear directions to the B&B.

From Central station you can take bus number 18. You can exit the bus at ‘Marnixplein’.
Follow the Westerstraat and turn left at Cafe ‘Blaffende Vis’
You’ll find us at the second corner opposite the playground!

There is a taxi service that will pick you up at the airport and take you to the Eel House for a flat fee. Please call +31 623927119 to arrange transportation and confirm cost.

If you take the train to Central Station you can take a taxi to the Eel House. We are not keen on the taxi drivers and taxis in front of the Central Station. But if you decide to take a taxi from Central Station then here we have some advice for you.

The taxiride from the central station will cost you approximately 7 Euros. Never pay more than 10 Euros!! Some taxi-drivers refuse to take you to the Eelhouse because it is such a short ride. You can choose any taxi you like, so just go to another taxidriver and ask him to bring you to the Eelhouse. We are sorry for this, but some taxidrivers in Amsterdam are very unprofessional.
