This apartment is on the Singel canal and the location is fantastic. It's close to Dam Square and easy to walk to other parts of Amsterdam. As it is a basement apartment it was a great alternative to other apartments on offer, usually on the 3rd or 4th floors. It has a well equipped kitchen, the bedroom was large with a very comfortable bed and a well appointed bathroom. The couch was also extremely comfortable, welcome after a day out walking, with cable TV and free Wifi. It was very clean and the communication with the agent was excellent.
I can't WAIT to come back to Amsterdam and stay in this apartment! It is in a wonderful location - close to the center of town and walking distance to just about everywhere. The apartment is only a few steps down from the street which makes it easy to get luggage in and out. I am a bit of a clean freak and was VERY pleased with how clean this apartment is. It is minimal in decor but contains everything you need as a home base while exploring the city. The pictures are EXACTLY how the apartment looks.
The bed was comfortable, the cable TV on the flat screen Samsung worked great, the shower was very soothing with a rain-type head and the bench by the windows was nice to sit at while watching the people go by on the street. I had to do some work while in Amsterdam and had no trouble with the Wifi either The instruction manual left at the apartment was very helpful and contained all the information you need in order to log in.
The property manager, Linda, was so helpful. We must have corresponded about 20 times before my arrival. She answered all my questions in a very prompt and friendly manner. Per the instructions on the HomeAway website, I did call the owners to confirm the advertisement was as it seemed and that it was legitimate. The owners were very pleasant as well. Linda could not meet me when I arrived but arranged for someone else to who was helpful in showing me around the apartment. Make sure you ask where the flatware is kept! It's in a hidden draw in the kitchen.
The only complaint I had was there is no DVD player as advertised. I was hoping to watch a few movies I had brought over but if that is all I can complain about, I would say that is a great thing! You may also want to bring your own bath soap. The soap they provided felt like hand soap to me. There is an Albert Heijn grocery story really close by so you can pick up a cheap bottle of soap there.
All in all, I would not hesitate to stay at this apartment again and would recommend it to any traveler. Be aware that this is not a party house as there are strict instructions about no smoking or playing loud music. It didn't bother me in the least but thought you might want to know.
Linda Zwingels, unsere Ansprechpartnerin, ist eine sehr nette Dame. Das Appartement ist neu renoviert und gut ausgestattet (es fehlt nur noch ein paar Kleiderhaken an der Wand und eine Garderobe), die Lage an der Singel Gracht ist optimal. Die Gegend ist ruhig, trotzdem hast man einen kurzen (Fuß)weg zu den interessanten und spannenden Punkten der Stadt. Amsterdam ist ein Traum. Also, alles vom Feinsten.
Einziger Wermutstropfen: Im Stockwerk drüber resideren die "Fabulous Shakerboys", die nachts zwischen 11:00 und 12:00 irgendwelche Be- und Entladungen vorgenommen haben, die nicht zu überhören waren. Wer nach 12:00 ins Bett geht (so wie wir) hat kein Problem.
