Simon's apartment had a gorgeous view! It was beautiful to watch the sky turn pink across the canal in the evenings. Simon was great - he helped us orient ourselves a little bit and gave us advice on the city, where to go, etc. This is a central location to pretty much everything. Simon pointed out the tram station to us but we ended up just walking everywhere. The apartment was well furnished and well supplied in the kitchen, but it was a bit dusty. Check out was simple and we got our deposit back about a week later. Keep in mind that it is on the fourth floor (fifth floor for Americans) and the stairs are very narrow and steep. Being on the top floor definitely gives you the best views of the canals, but if you have trouble with stairs this is not the place for you.
