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)

With both rooms you will also get access to the large living kitchen, where your fresh breakfast is on the house. You may also use the kitchen for lunch and / or dinner.

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

Stay in a 130 year old authentically restored building, with those beautiful Amsterdam window frame (and stained glass).

The 'AMSTERDAM ROOM' on the 1st floor is 13 m2 and offers two very comfortable high box spring beds. These beds were elected Best Buy of 2015! The matresses have a memory foam 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 it will be crowded little bit. 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 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 extra cost.

To make sure you can enter the apartment, make sure we know what time you will arrive! And please give us a call if your arrival time differs with more than 30 minutes.

Regular check-out is at 11:00 hours. You may smoke your bags in the house and spend another day in Amsterdam. You then keep your keys and pick up your bags later that day (free of charge).

You will receive the keys to your room and the keys to the front door. A brand new guest bathroom is ready for you. It has a waterfall and a cute, natural stone sink. It has a mirror and some clamps to hang your stuff while using the bathroom. If Both rooms are occupied the people in the other room also use these facilities. The bathroom and separate toilet are cleaned every single day.

Our large and fully equipped kitchen is also always at your disposal. You will enjoy your free breakfast here. We will get you fresh bread in the morning.

We'll gladly walk you from the tram to the first time, should you have need for that. Just give him me call when you get close!

You will get a tour in the building when you arrive. Someone 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 facilities. However; Jeroen will help you out, rather than be in your way :-)

You may also meet some guests from the other room that we sometimes run out, which is, as we know from experience, always a joy!

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'll gladly show you how to travel.

If you bring your little ones: there is a park at a two minute walk, it also has a petting zoo! You are allowed to visit and there is also a great idea.

Small bedroom but enough space for 2. House is pretty noisy but host is very friendly

  • 4 of 5

Overall our stay was fine. The bedroom is small but enough space for two people. The twin beds are very comfy which is a plus. The toilet and shower are located right outside the bedroom and shared with other guests. The host was very friendly and check in was easy. Our main complaint was the noise. There was another family staying above us and it was very loud when they came home late at night and early in the morning. Because the shared bathroom is right outside the bedroom privacy is limited. The neighborhood was nice and walkable to many attractions.

Absolutely recommend this property,great position,great host,loved our stay in Amsterdam.

  • 5 of 5

Only great things to say about Jeroen,his communication was impeccable,he contacted us just prior and gave exact details of how to get to his place,he greeted us warmly and sat down with us explaining everything we needed to know about the area and how to get around.

The room was clean and very comfortable,(the beds were exceptionally comfortable).

The area was close to the centre,a couple of tram stops away,or walk,maybe 30 min to centre,but the tram was great,got to see and travel around all of Amsterdam.

The room itself was quiet at night and dark,we slept really well.

All in all I would highly recommend Jeroen and his accomadation,he did a great job and would definitely stay again if Australia wasn't so far away.
