The apartment is situated in an original 18th Century townhouse located within the UNESCO World Heritage Area in City Center Amsterdam. The apartment is quiet and fully self contained with private entrance at street level in a local street just around the corner of the Prinsengracht. First floor with windows at both sides, kitchen, bathroom, living room and (separate) sleeping room with 'French' balcony.
The Jordaan area is a famous local area in the very heart of the Golden Age with many shops, restaurants, food stores and café's. Everything on walking distance. Anne Frank House is one block away as well as the trendy neighborhood de9straatjes.
The owner lives downstairs, where he runs a yoga studio.
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.
Loved our stay at this appartment. Spacious appartment in ideal location. Very accessable to city centre yet also in a very peaceful and relaxing area.
We hope to come back to Amsterdam and stay here again.
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!
Clean and comfy beds, good location and helpful host
This spacious apartment is in the loveliest part of the city, easy walk to many sights and public transportation. The owner is friendly and helpful. It is extremely quiet and the bed is comfortable. We enjoyed having a dishwasher and washing machine for our laundry also. We would definitely recommend staying here.
The owner/manager was personable, helpful and accommodating. The apartment was clean, spacious by Dutch standards and modern. My only reservation would be the WiFi signal strength, which was adequate, but sometimes weak. That said, I would definitely rent this apartment again.
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'.
