Spacious 1st Floor (USA 2nd Floor) Apartment - Pros & Cons

  • 3 of 5

We have mixed feelings about this apartment where we spent five nights in April 2015.

Pros:

- Large combination living/dining/kitchen area.

- Wash machine was nice. (No dryer.)

- Nicely equipped kitchen. Especially useful were the large electric kettle and microwave.

- Located about 4 or 5 blocks from GVB Tram line 17. Easy to get downtown or to Schipol.

- On a canal. Really cool to watch boats traversing the canal from your living room.

- Street market about two blocks away. Great to start the day with a fresh pastry.

- Large bathtub, uncommon for many European properties.

- Lots of hot water.

- Clean.

- Quiet, no traffic noise or noisy neighbors.

- Reasonably priced.

Neutral (may depend on what you want):

- Authentic neighborhood feel. Nothing touristy about this neighborhood. Very diverse population with a variety of small ethnic restaurants.

- Access was up 15 steep steps from the street entry. This is a Euro 1st floor, USA 2nd floor, apartment with no lift/elevator.

Cons:

- Bad smell. The bathroom smelled like a canal! Seriously, there must be some problem where sewer gas comes up through the drains. It permeates not only the bathroom but the small bedroom as well. It was bad enough two nights that my wife opted to sleep on a couch in the living room! This was a big negative and caused our overall rating of this property to drop significantly!

- No door on bathroom.

- Double bed is squeezed in between two walls. This means you crawl in and out from the bottom. No space next to the bed for an alarm, phone, eyeglasses, etc.

- No cold water in the shower. (Or, at least we couldn't figure out how to turn it on.) Plenty of hot water, but no cold water to mix it with to make the shower usable.

- No counter or shelf space in the bathroom.

- Owner needs to provide some written "instructions". We couldn't figure out how to work the oven, television or espresso machine. We were successful in figuring out the two most important appliances, the microwave oven and the wash machine.

- We have stayed at other properties where the owner provided written information on local restaurants, shops, markets, attractions, etc. Some of this was conveyed verbally when we checked in with the owner/manager upon arrival. Info was quickly forgotten. Would have been nice to have some written references and suggestions. It would be most useful to have written info in a couple of languages...Dutch, French, English, etc.

Excellent Property for Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

The property was so clean and spacious. There was a good equipped kitchen. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was very stylish and had a nice shower. The balcony was a nice touch and was very quiet and nice to sit out on. The only problem we had was that there was some noise upstairs like building works which woke us up a couple of times but i assume that wouldnt be happening everyday anyway. The area it was in was lovely and quiet and not too far from all of the hotspots. We had trouble getting the train from the airport but in the end it didnt take long in a taxi to get there. I would suggest getting a train to the Central station then a tram to Ten Kate Straat then walking to the apartment.

Perfect Host and Location

  • 5 of 5

The advert for this apartment should be changed to "A Beautiful Apartment ...". Rosy is a very kind and gracious host. She was waiting for us to arrive, had the apartment in perfect condition and gave us lots of useful information. The location of the apartment is ideal. It was very quiet and well appointed. The view over the canal was mesmerising. We walked everywhere in Amsterdam, from the apartment. At the end of the street is a daily market with the most wonderful array of produce. We will be staying in this apartment, whenever we return to Amsterdam - which I hope will be soon. It is a magnificent City and the people, food and sights are a delight.

Amazing location, great host, very clean!

  • 5 of 5

Amsterdam was my first stop of 6 cities in Europe, and I was welcomed very warmly by Rosy's hospitality. The apartment itself is in an excellent location, adjacent to a canal, with not much traffic during the day. I was always very comfortable walking home at night. The apartment has great views, and lets in plenty of light in the morning. It is very close to the city center by bike, and in 15-20 minutes it is possible to be at the Rijksmuseum, the Botanical Gardens, or any of the major sits in downtown Amsterdam; in addition, excellent restaurants and bars are spread throughout the nearby streets. Just walk until you find something that looks good :)

After some trouble with my bank upon arriving in Europe, Rosy was accommodating and tolerated my lateness while I figured things out. She provided a bicycle at a great rate, and she was always quickly available via email to recommend restaurants, bars, or sights to see. I will be booking Rosy's place again before my return flight from Amsterdam. Thanks again!

Great location, great price

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed in Rosy's lovely 1-bedroom for 3 weeks. It overlooks a beautiful canal in a quiet neighborhood. Rosy was very helpful and responsive; when we needed an additional light or a new toaster, she immediately provided. She was very generous with her bicycles. We had a misunderstanding in the beginning but she communicated directly with us and we cleared it up with no hard feelings. The large couch is suitable for sleeping; the roll-away bed is small and appropriate for a child. We had no issues with neighbors, noise, amenities, or utilities. Everyone we met in Amsterdam told us that we had an excellent location. Highly recommended!
