This was our second visit but first rental experience in Amsterdam, we enjoyed every part of our staying. The house is in a classic Amsterdam building, very very close to the Centraal Station, on one of the most famous canals of Amsterdam. The interesting history of the building surrounds you, but by the way it is very modern and friendly furnished so you feel yourself comfortable in that really well-designed loft..
Marcus and Monique are so friendly and helpful, we just met Marc and we are very glad to meet our hosts. The house was clean, and you have all you can need in the house. The Nespresso is working very well, in the morning the house fulls with fresh coffee aroma. You can do your shopping from the nearest Albert Heijn supermarket (5 min walk far) and have great breakfast at home. You have all you need in the kitchen. The water heating system also works well.. There's a second bedroom (with black windowblindsthat you may use) at the back side of the flat and it is very quiet to have rest.
The big window in the living room-viewing the canal was very relaxing, in the early morning time, the bike-traffic we saw surprised us, it was very fast and well-organised. While watching you feel like you live the Dutch daily routine in that flat.
There's a bike rental shop just near the building, the guy seems busy but they may help about the prices..
There's a guide also that Marc-Monique leaves you at home, explains all the details about living in the property, and you can learn some clues about Amsterdam, about where to eat and the nearest places which are must see classified.
We were very late to decide about the accommodation but Marcus was very clear and well-organised host and so we had no problem about reservation, check-in and check-out process. Our plane was late in the night and we had late check out chance, thanks for that again, as the place is so close to the station, we didn't carry any luggage, this was also nice :)
My friends are planning a weekend tour, we strongly recommend them that flat. If you want to have a real-historic, comfortable and classic canal-viewed staying experience, inquire now, I'm sure that our nice hosts will answer all about your staying.
