I was born in in the Netherlands and live in Amsterdam since 20 years.
Hans Smit purchased this apartment in 2010
The apartment has got a unique location. In one of the best areas in Amsterdam; facing a park and the Amstel river (no neighbours) and lots of trees and plants in the neighbourhood and still a real Amsterdam neighbourhood with all the facilties like Tram, foodshop and supermarkets and restaurant within a few minutes distance and with tram in 10 minutes right in the heart of the historical center and always parking spots in the street
Architecture (building from the 1930's) makes it a real Amsterdam apartment (architecture style is called Amsterdam School); very light apartment (East, South positioning) and facing the green trees of the park and the blue water from the Amstel river which makes it very quiet to relax from the busy city. But if you like to benefit cities life, you'll be there within 15 minutes!
This was our fifth visit to Amsterdam (April 1-9, 2017) and our second experience with renting an apartment. Hans is an excellent landlord/host. From his initial welcome and greetings to all the wonderful information about local points of interest to recommended shopping and dining in the area, everything was covered for a most enjoyable stay. We chose this apartment because of its close proximity (20-min walk) to the RAI Center where my wife was attending a convention. Additionally, the tram lines are only a 12-minute walk and so convenient for getting anywhere around the city. The neighborhood is calm and quiet - away from all the touristy concentration in the central core. On our next visit to Amsterdam we will seek to rent from Hans again, whether it be a convention or not.
Hans was an excellent, helpful host during our stay over New Years Eve. He provided lots of information about things to do and places to go around the apartment and throughout Amsterdam. The apartment is roomy and well equipped. While we were there it was quite chilly so the gas heater in the living room was very cosy and warm. The main bedroom has a very comfortable bed and I assume the other bed is nice as well since my son did not complain. The stairs up to the apartment are somewhat steep so if that is an issue for you, take note. The use of the bicycles that came with the apartment was great - everyone rides everywhere in Amsterdam even in bad weather! The apartment is not located in the main touristy area of Amsterdam but is along the Amstel so you have access to parks and central Amsterdam pretty easily. It also makes the ride to/from the airport a breeze. We used Uber and it only cost 20 Euros or so each way - a bargain for 3 people! Thanks for a great stay!
Splendid little apartment in a pleasant residential neighbourhood. Slightly off the centre but with relatively easy links to all the main sights of the city and good local shopping facilities. It is clean, well-equipped and extremely comfortable, though the shower room/toilet and the kitchen are both rather cramped in size and there is a steep staircase to the first floor entrance. This might be difficult to negotiate for anyone with a mobility problem. The owner is very personable, helpful and easy to deal with.
Very clean, comfortable, quiet apartment in a residential area close to parks and within a 15-min cycle ride of the city centre. Owner Hans was there to welcome us and set us up with the use of his bikes - an excellent bonus, thank you Hans! We would definitely stay here again although we would take insect repellent to ward off the mosquitoes at night time!
Nous avons passé un super séjour. Hans est un hôte admirable qui nous a apporté beaucoup d'information très utiles pour notre sejour. L'appartement est parfait et très propre, tres bien équipé et bien situé par rapport au centre (20 à 25 minutes). Nous y retournerons sans aucun doute, avec grand plaisir.
We enjoyed our stay here very much, Hans was welcoming and extremely helpful. We had a couple of glitches which were not his fault, and he was informative and apologetic. The kitchen is small but well equipped, and it's great to have a washing machine as we are long term travelers. The beds are comfortable, and although the second room is small, it's fine for a couple. The apartment is also very cosy :-)
Public transport links are also good and easy, and the bicycles are great to have.
We would book again for a future visit.
