About the property

Rent one of our two beautiful rooms in an authentic City Center Apartment!

Rent one of our two beautiful rooms:

A) The new, luxurious 'AMSTERDAM ROOM' (1-2 guests) (Black / White pictures with the black chair)

B) The new, stylish & comfortable 'FIREPLACE ROOM' (1-4 guests) (Brownish pictures with the gray couch)

Med begge rum får du også adgang til det store levende kjøkkenet, hvor din gratis fersk frokost er på huset. Du kan også bruge køkkenet til frokost og / eller middag.

I live on the 3rd floor myself, and I will make your Amsterdam stay the most special stay ever.

Stay in a 130 year old authentically restored building, with that beautiful Amsterdam window frame (and stained glass), original oak wood floor and the original ceiling!

The 'AMSTERDAM ROOM' on the 1st floor is 13 m2 and offers you two very comfortable high boxspring beds. These beds were elected Best Buy of 2015! The mattresses have a memory foam toplayer on the mattress and we are overloaded with compliments for those beds :-) A third, full size extra bed (200x90cm) is possible in this room, but will make it a little bit crowded. Read a 2016 blog about the room (German / Deutsch) here: https: // jonastropartz. wordpress. com

The 'FIREPLACE ROOM' on the 2nd floor is 26 m2 and offers you four of those great and comfortable box spring beds. We can also accommodate a baby or small child here; we have a baby bed available at no cost.

- Free fresh breakfast, free highspeed WiFi & cable TV (Enjoy CNN, Comedy Central, FoxLife, Nat Geo, TLC, BBC 1-4, German and French channel (s) and many more);

- Soft towels included, Extra Large towels are available on request;

- Flexible check-in / out (just make sure we know before you arrive!);

- Your own set of keys; late entry possible, but please make no noise;

- Large living kitchen available until 22:00 every day;

- Wonderful, thriving, upcoming & popular part of Amsterdam (just West of Center);

- The entire apartment is cleaned daily.

Only 5 minutes from city center, 10 minutes from Amsterdam Central Station; 25 minutes from Schiphol Airport. We sturen u gedetailleerde reisinstructies na uw reservering.


Regular check-in is at 14:00 hours. Du kan imidlertid checke ind tidligere og forlate dine poser i vores lejlighed. You may also check in later. To make sure you can enter the apartment, make sure we know at what time you will arrive! Og vær så snill og ge oss en samtale, hvis din ankomsttid varierer med mer enn 30 minutter.

Regular check-out is at 11:00 hours. Du kan imidlertid forlate dine poser i lejligheden og tilbringe en anden dag i Amsterdam. Du så holder dine nøkler og henter dine poser senere den dagen (gratis).

In both rooms you will find a flat screen HD TV, towels, guest towels, washcloths, bathrobes, a hairdryer, a chair and a stool and a large mirror. There are facilities to hang your coat and store your bags.


Du mottar de nøgler til din værelse og de to hovedtelefonerne. A brand new guest bathroom is ready for you. It has a waterfall shower and a cute, natural stone sink. Det har en spejl og noen klemmer å holde på dine ting mens du bruker badet. The bathroom is cleaned every single day.

Our large and fully equipped kitchen is also always at your disposal. Du vil selvfølgelig nyde din gratis morgenmad her. Jeroen will get you fresh bread in the morning. In the fridge you find eggs, deli, cheese, butter, juice etcetera for your breakfast. U kunt zelf lunchen of eten hier als u dat wilt. Lunch and dinner are self-service. Buy your fresh food just around the corner at the daily open air market, and cook your dinner conveniently at home! Du kan bruke våre oljer, salt osv. Når du forbereder din egen mat.


Jeroen will gladly walk you from or to the tram stop the first time, so you will know exactly where to go. Just give him a call when you get close!

Du kommer få en tur i huset når du ankommer. Jeroen will be there to show you around. Jeroen will be in the apartment most of the time, as he lives there too. He has his own quarters, bedroom and bathroom. Men han kan for eksempel være ved at bruge kjøkkenet. However; Jeroen will help you out, rather than be in your way :-)

Du kan også møte noen gæster fra den andre salen som vi ofte leier ut, som vi vet fra erfaring, alltid er en glede!


Situated on the edge of the Amsterdam City Center, the Old West is located right between the Vondelpark, the Rembrandt Park and the Erasmus Park. You'll find canals, cafe's, public transport and restaurants within a 3 minute walk. You will find the world famous Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum, the Anne Frank House, The Van Gogh Museum, The Rijksmuseum, the Jordan Area and the Canal Cruise Harbor all within 5-10 tram minutes. Famous area's like Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein are very close.

In Old-West, the Kinkerbuurt has undergone a major upgrade in 2014. Mange strender og hus i dette område har nytte urbane fornyelse, som gjør dette hele nærområdet hip og happening. You will find our location a very comfortable starting point for any trip you may decide to plan. Five major tram lines are conveniently located within a few minutes walk and we will show you how to travel.

Hvis du bringer dine små: det er en park på en to minutters gange, det har også en petting såo! Du er lovet at besøge der for gratis og en picnic der er også en god idé.

Not for older adults/families: unclean hostel/boarding house atmosphere

  • 1 of 5

As a family, we rented this in hopes it would suit our needs, as we've had years of positive experiences on VRBO, however, we were quite disappointed. To get to the space, there are 2 very steep staircases that lead to a tight room sofa was less than clean room with a soiled sofa. The only way to get to the shared bathroom was by descending very steep stairs to a dirty, very tight bathroom space (smaller than a closet) The adjoining very small shower room did not drain and left virtually no space to dress. We left after 1 of 3 booked nights and went to a hotel for less money and much better accommodations. We did not receive a refund nor a note from the host. I would not recommend this home.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, the roof terrace is however not always part of the deal as it's only reachable through my private bedroom ;-) Yet enjoying the sun is very possible as there is a small park 80 meters away, including a petting zoo ;-) Greetz, -Jeroen

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Jeroen was an excellent host, and gave us lots of great tips on fun things to do around the city. His apartment was located close to the city center, was very comfortable, with a full fridge and fresh fruit for us to eat, and the wifi was quick as well. I highly recommend him and the flat, it was a great overall experience!

The right place to spend your time in Amsterdam!

  • 5 of 5

Jeroen is a great host.

He knows all ins and outs about Amsterdam and send us to some amazing places! We were only here for one day, but we enjoyed the location, the Beautiful Fireplace Room and the breakfast a lot.

I was sorry to find out he wasn't single ;-(
