Great stay

  • 5 of 5
We recently had the pleasure of staying at this residence for the second time and thoroughly enjoyed our 10 days there. We did buy a 7 day bus/tram pass but the location is so central to most attractions that we found we could have done without it. Most attractions are within 20 to 30 minutes walk away.
This is a heritage ("monumental") house but it has been renovated to preserve the historical flavour of the residence while providing up dated amenities. All necessities are provided although there is no land line--bring your mobile device. As mentioned by others the view from the living room windows is fascinating.
There are a number of options in getting from the airport: the Airport Express bus drops off at Leidseplein ( a short walk from the house, taxi costs around E45 and takes about 25 minutes or you can take the train from the airport to the Centraal Station and a tram or cab from there (not recommended if you have a lot of luggage).
Michelle and Ivan are wonderful hosts.

Spacious and convenient, on a lovely canal

  • 5 of 5
We visit Amsterdam often for my wife's work, and have therefore stayed in many rentals. This one is special for several reasons: 1) Location: All of the major museums and concert venues are within walking distance -- many of them reachable by canal-side walks the whole way. 2) Location again: You are one block from the Leidseplein, a stop for three of the most useful trams plus the airport bus. 3) Location a third time: A ground floor apartment facing one of city's most attractive canals! 4) Space: Unlike most Amsterdam flats, this one allows you to spread out and breathe a little. Shall we eat at the kitchen table, or in the living room, looking out at the canal? 5) Amenities: Yes, there really are two toilets; at least two beds; a stand-up shower; a lie-down tub; a complete set of kitchen and laundry appliances; and five sinks! 6) Quiet: Despite the liveliness of the nearby Leidseplein, we slept peacefully for eleven nights in the back bedroom, hearing not a peep. 7) Personnel: Marcelle, the owner, was a model of efficiency setting up the rental by email, and a welcoming host on site. Ivan was the perfect manager -- explaining everything from the excellent wi-fi to how to run the clothes- and dish-washers. The second morning we found a light bulb out on one of the very high ceilings; Ivan had it fixed before we returned for lunch. If you've ever stayed at a thanks-for-the-check;-now-you're-on-your-own sort of place, you will appreciate this kind of attention.
