Spacious apartment - great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Amsterdam with this apartment as our home base. It was easy to check in, the sweet & funny caretaker was on site. The city was completely walk or bike-able from this location. Use of 2 bikes are included. The place is nicely furnished and, as a gift to first time renters, very well provisioned. We were provided with water, wine, juice, milk, bread, cheese, fruit, eggs, etc. The bad is King sized with a latex foam mattress, very firm. WIFI was fast. It was nice to have a patio. The bathroom was quite small - as you would expect in Europe. We were able to walk from Central Station, with luggage, without a problem. An Uber back to the airport was €36.

Clean, well maintained and very central

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was nice and it was a pleasant surprise to find it lightly stocked. There were two bikes that came in very handy for my short trip. I'd recommend this apartment as long as you don't mind a fairly steep climb up the stairs.

Great Location and Well Appointed

  • 5 of 5

Fem, our hostess, had stocked the kitchen with wine, eggs, butter, jam, cheese, salami, bananas, apples, and milk. What a pleasure to realize we didn't need to immediately seek out a supermarket upon our arrival. The apartment was very clean and the location was quiet, about a mile from the Central Station. The Maritime Museum, one of our favorite museums, is only a few blocks from the apartment and there is an excellent bakery right around the corner. My husband also loved the fact that he could get a Pacific Northwest styled IPA at the corner pub, something he found difficult to find in most Amsterdam bars. We will definitely seek out this apartment for any future trips to Amsterdam.

Wonderful Location and Friendly Owner

  • 5 of 5

The location is amazing: central but also quiet. The bed is very comfortable, the kitchen is functional, and there is even space to sit and relax both inside and outside. The apartment is clean and well maintained, and the internet connection is reliable. There are restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and museums all within walking distance, and with bicycles available, it was easy to reach any location in Amsterdam. The owner and manager are very friendly and helpful as well. I would recommend this property for anyone willing to climb two flights of stairs, and I hope to stay here again on my next visit to Amsterdam.

Good experience in Amsterdam

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the top floor apartment that was just renovated.


- Good location, walking distance to many touristy attractions and few restaurants very close as well as grocery stores.

- Excellent hosts! Very welcoming and accommodating, brought us breakfast on the first day and chocolates for Easter!

- Beds are comfortable, bathroom is brand new and apartment is very light and clean


- Stairs are an issue with anyone older or with disabilities. It is typical Amsterdam's stairs that are steep.

- Kitchen would benefit from a microwave and/or an oven in case you want to warm something up.

Other then that - we had a very good time and will stay there again if we come back to town!
