Basic apartment.

  • 2 of 5

This property has a great location, close to public transportation and lots of nice restaurants. The bed is comfortable, however in my opinion that's where the comfort ends. There seems to be some things missing from the apartment. It felt barebones to us, not cozy at all. No pillows on the couch. There were extra pillows for the bed, but no pillowcases for them. In the kitchen, There was a coffee pot, but only Whole coffee beans, with no way to grind them. Salt but no sugar for coffee. In order to eat or drink anything, EVERYTHING must be purchased by the renter. Which is fine. That's what we did. It just feels like the price charged for the apartment didn't match the amenities that were available, or rather unavailable. When we noticed that there was not even matches to light the stove, the owner replied "yes, we ran out of matches. You'll have to buy some." All in all, if you just need a bed and to be close to town, this is the place. But if you're looking for a comfortable, cozy, homey spot, this isn't for you.

Owner's Response: I would like to react to this review as I believe that there is a few things that aren't correct and a bit unfair in my opinion. First of all, I am glad that you were happy with the location of the apartment. This is a very important element when visiting a city and we are glad that you've enjoyed the location as much as we do. In response to your remark that the apartment feel bare-bones to you, and that you missed pillows on the couch, I can say that this has been a well thought-out choice since we are of the opinion that hygiene is priority. Pillows on a couch can not easily be washed after each stay, same for rugs on the floor. We have decorated the apartment with a warm color on the wall, many different atmosphere lights with dimmer switch, tealight candles and fresh flowers. We have two sets of sheets including pillowcases. There are four pillowcases in total. I wish you would have given us a call, so that I could have explained where to find these. We are always available to our guests. The apartment is fully equipped; washing machine, dryer, coffee machine, microwave/oven, pots and pans, glasses and we leave condiments and basics in the kitchen for our guests to use. We cannot be buying groceries for all of our guests, especially because everyone has different needs. The apartment is very well priced, especially when considering what a hotel room would cost. A 2* hotel room would easily cost 200EUR per night in the same area, and I bet that the experience would be nowhere near our apartment.

Great week in Amsterdam!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in this apartment! We were there for 6 nights and it served our purposes perfectly, and is so much better than staying in a hotel. Pictures and listing are as advertised, and it was clean upon arrival.

The neighborhood itself is [mostly] quiet (Fri and Sat night there were some gatherings we could hear in the courtyard, but we sleep with ear plugs when we travel, so it wasn't a problem for us - they also seemed to wind down at a reasonable hour). It's very close to Leidseplein, and several tram stops to take you where ever else you want to go. There are also plenty of restaurants and cafe's just around the corner with good food and drinks that aren't touristy. We also used some of Denise's restaurant recommendations as well, which were great.

Denise was a wonderful host, and very accommodating about our arrival time, and I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking for something outside City Centre, but still within the thick of the city!

As a side note: like most Amsterdam apartments, this is on the third level of a building with very narrow and very steep stairs, so if you are not able bodied, I wouldn't recommend it, but for anyone that's navigated Amsterdam stairwells successfully before, you'll be fine!

Well located, clean flat with very friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

Nice and quick communication befor we rented the flat. The flat is well and safe located, very clean and modern furnished (looks like the photos). The owners are very friendly, answered all the questions about the flat, parking, etc and was accessible by phone the whole stay. They prepared a nice book with tips for visiting the city like good restaurants and bars, nice places to see, where to book boats and other stuff. We already recommanded the flat to our friends :)

Thank you for the nice stay! Anna P.

Super schön und sehr Zentral

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt in Amsterdam bis auf das Wetter, aber da kann ja niemand etwas zu!

Die Wohnung liegt sehr Zentral, es ist alles (Kanaltour, Anne-Frank-Haus, Heineken,...) zu Fuß zu erreichen.

Auch Essens und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt es zu genüge in direkter Umgebung.

Die Vermieter (lieben Gruß noch einmal) waren sehr nett und bemüht. Über frische Blumen in der Wohnung,

"Ausgehtips" bis zum einfach netten Mailverkehr!

Die Wohnung ist einfach nur zu empfehlen!!!!

Gruß Lars & Simone!
