Amsterdam: an urban utopia
We highly recommend this studio apartment. Although the furnishings have seen better days and were quite well worn, the apartment was clean, comfortable, and quiet. On a scale of 1 to 10, the location is a 10! We thoroughly toured Amsterdam by foot and also made good use of the very user friendly tram system. After six days of exploring this beautiful city, we can say that a better location for a stay in Amsterdam does not exist. The neighborhood is quiet and residential, but restaurants, coffee shops, nightlife, museums and public transportation are all a short easy stroll away (2-3 minutes). There is an absolutely lovely picture postcard view out the window. The care taker, Ivan, lives across the hall. He was very friendly, accommodating, and happy to give suggestions and information to the best of his ability. However, travelers who are accustomed to the services of a hotel concierge for making restaurant reservations, finding out museum hours, getting tickets, information about train schedules, and so forth, may not enjoy a VRBO. However, if you are a tourist who enjoys independent exploration and would like to get a sense of what it is like to live as a local resident, this place is perfect. We were very pleased with our experience and would definitely come back to this VRBO.
