Great Place to stay in Jordaan!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this apartment during our stay in Amsterdam. This location was perfect and centrally located to everything. We walked everywhere. Frans was very helpful and gave us directions and many suggestions. Everything was very comfortable. There is no cable or satellite TV as suggested and the internet does work better from the back of the apartment but it really was not a problem. Would definitely recommend this place!

Location, Location -and a great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

This was our second visit to this charming apartment. The location is so perfect for a visit to this delightful City. The Jordaan is such a great neighbourhood, you can find everything including supermarkets within a couple of blocks and most tourists sights are an easy walk. Coming back to the Apt is like coming home, comfy bed, clean and easy apartment. Nice extras are the washing machine and dishwasher.

Frans was helpful, we would happily recommend this apartment.

Great location, clean, and comfortable with a helpful host.

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay! Great location with easy access to city center and near many cool shops, cafes, and grocery. The apartment is spacious - we loved the quiet street, full kitchen, comfy bed, and view of the Westermark Church. The washing machine was also very helpful. Franz greeted us with helpful recommendations on where to go, eat, and shop. A previous reviewer mentioned the church chimes but we really barely noticed the chimes and when we did, found it quite pleasant. WiFi does work best in a certain part of the house but we never had a problem with the signal and it was fine for web browsing on cell phones, face time, etc...

All in all, we had a wonderful stay in Jordaan and would highly recommend this place - we hope to come back and stay again.

Weak Wifi and No Sateliite/Cable as Noted in The Description

  • 3 of 5

We travel fulltime & rent apartments around the world through VRBO/Homewawy all the time. We count on owners giving an accurate description of their amenities when deciding where to stay. We stayed 2 weeks. This is the first time the description of amenities did NOT match what was in the apt.

There is NO satellite or cable ANYTHING in this apartment yet it still shows it is as of today. This was very upsetting as we always watch major sporting events, etc on TV plus we don't go out in the evenings. We travel/explore during the day. The owner was unapologetic & said this was a quiet apt plus he didn't want the noise with people sitting around smoking etc. He said we could just watch or read things on our iPads. After further conversation he does not intent to add it so DONT LIST cable/satellite as an amenity. The wifi is REALLY WEAK & only accessible in 1 corner of the apt in the back. There is no router in the apt so it piggybacks off his downstairs apt. The wifi was not strong enough to use FaceTime to talk with the family or use you tube or other like apps without some buffering issues. My husband informed the owner it was slow but based on the response it was a known issue.

These items were a unwelcome surprise but you have no options once you have paid in advance & arrive. We use these apartments like they are our home rather than being on vacation so we rely on what the owner states in their ad. The pictures are not accurate as there is now a single bed in the front of the unit with a table/3chairs plus wall units. The couch is now in the back across from the bed. FYI...The bathroom is a tiled wet room with no shower enclosure. There is a door to the toilet area in the bthrm. The back view is of a dirty roof out the French balcony window. You can see & hear the nearby clock tower which chimes/bells rings every 15 minutes.

In all fairness if you are here on vacation or a short stay and tv and wifi are not a high priority to you then this apartment is in a good location close to transportation, a grocery store, many restaurants and museums. Good bed & Washing machine. Amsterdam is a wonderful city & this area is safe/pleasant to walk around. The airport bus comes nearby so no car is needed. Get an OV Chipcard for transportation & we highly recommend a Museumkart that will pay for itself in a few visits.

We hope this review is helpful to our fellow travelers and more accurately describes the situation in the apt.

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay-clean, quiet, great location, and a great host. The apartment was very big, it had a great view of the Westermark Church, and everything we needed was in our reach. Our favorite parts about the apartment were the kitchen, views, and comfy bed. The Jordaan district is now my favorite place to stay in Amsterdam and Frans gave great recommendations for restaurants and groceries. I can't imagine a better place to stay!

Car: not necessary

The apartment is located in the famous Jordaan area one of the liveliest and famous local districts of the citycenter. You will find bars, cafés, restaurants and all kinds of shops in the direct surrounding of the apartment. Most Museums are close-by, especially the Anne Frank House situated on the other side of the Prinsengracht, just a few steps away. The apartment has a great view on the Westertoren like Anne Frank did during her stay in 'het achterhuis'.
