I will preface this by saying is not my first time staying in Amsterdam. With that said this has by far been the best location I have ever stayed while spending time there. If you walk to the apartment from Central Station it takes 15-20 minutes to get to. Once you get settled in and want to explore all that is that is Amsterdam everything is mostly within another 15-20 minute walk. No matter if you want to see the Red Light District, Van Gogh Museum, Rembrandtplein, Heineken Experience, or the many of the vast array of coffeeshops and cafes they are all within a short walk of this apartment. The only time we even had to purchase train passes was to go watch a concert at the Ziggo Dome. The pictures are a very accurate portrayal of the actual apartment. One thing that you should know before booking is this, my friend and I that stayed recently are both 6'1"+ and this is an upstairs apartment with a lot of angles so if you are a fairly tall person will be hitting your head on quite a few things. I have stayed in quite a few places in Amsterdam over the years and think that this is the place I will call home in all my future travels to the city.
