The PERFECT Flat!
Can I give 6 stars?? This flat exceeded our expectations and was the perfect place to call home for the 3 nights my husband and I spent in Amsterdam. The owners, Jorge and Bernadette, clearly take great pride in making their guests feel welcome and comfortable, as it showed in all the little (and big) details... from the warm decor of the apartment to the list of recommendations, stores, and restaurants that was pre-printed for us. Jorge and Bernadette live on the first floor of the building and told us that should we need anything at anytime, they would be readily available to help.
This flat is perfectly located in the Jordaan district, which is commonly touted as the most picturesque part of town, and walking distance or short bike or tram ride to everything. Sitting right on a canal, the views are BEAUTIFUL! I loved waking up each morning and enjoying my breakfast, overlooking the canal.
The apartment itself is spacious but cozy at the same time, with it's homey furniture and accents. It also had everything we needed (soap, shampoo, hairdryer, washing machine), and also many things that we didn't think we needed but appreciated, like a selection of classical and jazz CDs, DVDs, jams and bottles of water in the refrigerator, a large umbrella when it rained... The flat is also very clean, and I instantly felt at home.
This flat is located on the top floor with a very steep staircase. It wasn't a problem for us, but I was very glad we had backpacks instead of large suitcases.
As for activities, one of our favorites was renting bikes and riding to the countryside on our own! Quite the adventure!
Thank you, Jorge and Bernadette! On our 27-day trip through Europe, we stayed in many, many apartments... and this one was our favorite by far!
