We had a wonderful stay in this apartment. Branko is an excellent host and made us feel very welcome. Fantastic location with a supermarket right up the street, tram stop right outside of the door, and several excellent bakeries and restaurants around the corner. My only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. Just beware there is a very steep set of steps to climb to the apartment. If you are at all disabled this is not the place for you. Great little deck off the kitchen and living room area but since it was December we just walked out and looked around.
The apartment is as described in previous reviews, and as shown in the pictures. Cosy, comfortable and bright, but with more than enough space for our group of three - we stayed for seven nights. The location is good, in a busy but attractive part of Amsterdam just outside the centre - a short tram ride in to the middle (there is a tram stop directly outside the front door!) or else it is not far at all to bike. After the first day we rented bikes, which is such a great way to experience Amsterdam! There are steep stairs up to the apartment, but that did not bother us in the slightest - it's only on the second floor anyway, and steep, narrow staircases are all part of the Amsterdam experience.
The thing that really stood out in our experience of renting this apartment was the considerate and attentive service of our awesome host, Branko! Although we never met him in person (as he was out of Amsterdam at the time) he promptly responded to all our needs with great personal service. We arrived in Amsterdam following 24+ hours of long-haul travel from New Zealand feeling very tired and keen to relax - Branko ensured that his friend Matej was waiting at the apartment to meet us, show us around and give us the keys. Our only small problem during our entire stay was with the wi-fi internet initially not working so well - when we emailed him about this he quickly responded letting us know how to fix the problem, and letting us know about an alternative wifi network we could use (especially for when you are trying to use internet in the lounge area) and we never had another problem with it throughout our stay. We decided to add an extra night to our stay - this was no problem, he arranged for Matej (who is also very friendly and welcoming!) to come over at a time convenient for us and pick up the fee for the extra night. Near the end of the trip one of our party lost one of the two sets of keys. We assumed we would have to pay for the replacement set, but Branko wasn't having a bar of it - he replaced them free of charge!
Overall this was a fantastic experience, and I must say it is rare to have such a considerate host as Branko. I would recommend his apartment to anyone, and will surely stay here again next time that I am in Amsterdam!

This bright, quiet and airy apartment was exactly as described by other travelers and shown in photos. The owner was easy to reach by email, very friendly and helpful. The location is ideal - walking distance to museums and the Albert Cuyp outdoor market as well as near several good restaurants. The corner tram takes you to the train station. Excellent value for the price. Our Dutch friends who stopped by were impressed by the location and size. We'll be back!
For a comfortable apartment with an authentic Dutch feel and everything you need provided in a very convenient location, this apartment is excellent value. The host is friendly and obliging from first contact through to arrival and departure. This apartment allows you to enjoy the experience of a typical Amsterdam apartment - including the steep, narrow stairs (mentioned by some reviewers) and the genuine Dutch toilet! (Such stairs are the norm in Amsterdam and don't worry, they are easily manageable). The apartment is exactly as described and the photos are a true representation of what you will find on arrival. A computer with internet access and wi-fi are provided at no cost, both rare in holiday apartments. Within easy walking distance are Vondelpark, Museumplein, Leidseplein, Rembrandtplein, Centrum and the Canal Ring. On the corner are stops for several tram routes towards Centraalstation, Amsterdam South and across town. The apartment is in the middle of the de Pijp neighbourhood with excellent local shops around the corner and the Albert Cuypmarkt only a few minutes away. The writer is a return customer with this host, who never fails to warmly welcome you to his clean and well-maintained apartment. This is not the most glamorous apartment in Amsterdam and it has some little quirks but it lacks for nothing, is very well-placed and absolutely reasonably priced (especially as it has two separate bedrooms). In over twenty years of visiting Amsterdam, I have not found a better value apartment.
We (2 couples) stayed for 5 nights in June. The apartment is well located with plenty of shops nearby and good tram access to the city centre and main railway station. It is within an easy walk of Albert Cuyp Straat Market, and the Van Gough Museum. The owner was very friendly and helpful He provided quick assistance when the wifi temporarily failed. The stairs to the apartment were a challenge, very steep, particularly with large suitcases. The second bedroom is very tight with no hanging space. Overall the apartment was comfortable and a great base to explore Amsterdam. We would happily stay there again.
Great apartment, accurately described in the listing; it even exceeded our expectations. Fantastic location - close to Albert Cuyp Straat Market, good range of shops, places to eat and nice bakeries near by. Good tram links, making getting around quick and easy.
The communication and service from the owner was excellent from my very first enquiry, throughout and even after our stay - very friendly, helpful and when there was a problem with the gas supply, caused by the tram works outside, he had it sorted out as quickly and with as little disruption to our holiday as possible.
I would recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to have an easy, enjoyable experience of Amsterdam life and the 3 of us who stayed there would definitely stay again!
