Immaculate place - simple rooms but comfortable and everything needed. Friendly owner - very helpful with suggestions. Good breakfast. Short walk to sights. Recommend as an easy place to stay in Geithorn.

Our group of 4 stayed here for a couple of nights in April 2017.
We decided last minute to try to find a couple of rooms...and this was the place!
We had a couple of big, clean rooms and everything suited us perfectly.
The proprietors were wonderful, as were the staff. All were helpful and friendly.
Their English was really good and we appreciated that.
We rented bicycles from the hotel and enjoyed a beautiful ride of about 20 kilometres.
We really enjoyed the Giethoorn area and all it offered us.
Thank you De Olde Smidse! We will be back!

We stayed there last month(May2015) which is a peak season in Netherland, the majority of the hotels in Giethoorn were fully booked, most of the website shows only Steenwijk and Meppel have rooms available until the last minute we seek a room in De Olde Smidse in a local website. The hotel is just right next to the bus stop, easy to access even holding lots of luggage. The main walking area, VVV and supermarket of Giethoorn takes you only 10mins to walk or 5 mins by bike which is really convenient. The room is nice and clean; My room is facing to the street and river, never to have that nice breath in the morning. Will recommend my friends to stay there while they plan to travel there. Last but not least, all the staff there are friendly and willing to help.

Room tip: Only few rooms in this hotel. May not able to stay a huge group of people.

My wife and i stayed here for one night in mid April. We chose this place because of the free parking, free wi-fi, free breakfast, price was OK and location to walk around the canals of Giethoorn.
Our room was upstairs, no lift, it was clean and spacious and the host was friendly and helpful, thankful she spoke english the best she could. Comfy bed, quiet room and hair dryer in bathroom.
It is just a 5 minute walk to the start of the canals where you can hire a boat or have a meal, then allow yourself 1-2 hours to meander through the pathways and small bridges along the canals. Small supermarket is just 5 mins walk away also.
Breakfast was OK and we had a good stay here overall.

The hotel is located on the roadside before the village of Giethoorn so it is easy to find the hotel. The car can be parked for free on site. The owner is very friendly and gracious so we enjoy talking to her. The room is nice, clean and has a good size. Also, wifi is free and no password is required.

With regard to the food, the dinner is so tasty and the price is worth every penny. The breakfast including the hotel fare is simple but also delicious. Overall we are really happy with this stay.
