More shabby than shabby shic!

  • 2 of 5

Although the apartment was clean the overall impression was that it was rundown somewhat.

The bedroom was disappointing, the double bed was two single mattresses on a double bed frame.with little space between the bed and the wardrobe.

The apartment was like the pictures on the site but pictures can be very deceiving

On the plus side Marvell,the owner was very helpful and informative,with suggestions and information on places to visit

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This trip marked our 5th time in Amsterdam and 3rd apartment. We enjoy staying in Amsterdam apartments. They allow you to feel what it's really like to live in the city. This apartment was no exception. It's very spacious and bright with large windows and canal views. It is a nice and comfortable space to relax in. Westerkerk Church and Anne Frank House are right around the corner. There is also a local food mart which was very convenient. The bedroom did get a bit hot sometimes at night. There is a window but not a lot of air flow. You may want to ask the owner, Marcel, for a fan. He was friendly and helpful. Kitchen is a little on the small side but for simple purposes of making coffee or toasting bread it sufficed. All in all we had a relaxing and comfortable stay.

Perfect for business travel

  • 5 of 5

In Amsterdam for business, and this condo was perfect - easy access to transit to get wherever you need to be, good wifi in the suite, grocery store, cafes and restaurants all in a short walking distance. Hosts Marcel and Barbara live in the building are gracious and attentive. Marcel was very responsive to questions before and during my trip.

Definitely recommended - whatever your reason for being in Amsterdam.

Canal Apartment With A View

  • 5 of 5

My wife, Caroline, and I stayed for a week at this apartment, after a two week trans-Atlantic cruise from Ft Lauderdale, FL. We absolutely loved this place and its central location, within minutes from everything. This was immensely helped by the very congenial and helpful owner, Marcel, who provided us with pre-loaded transport cards, which work on the tram, buses and trains. Marcel along with his wife, who live in the building, were also very helpful with directions and local recommendations. He even printed out some documents I needed. The flat, itself, is very comfortable, with a very good shower and comfortable beds. Not luxurious, but very functional and comfortable. The price reflects that very adequately. The view out the enormous windows, overlooking the canal is "to die for". We could have just sat there watching the world go by for the entire week and certainly spent a fair amount doing just that. Given the central location, the amazing view and the wonderful owners right there in the same building, this is a wonderful place, I would recommend to anyone!

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay in the city, whether you're familiar with the city or not. West Church, Anne Frank House just meters away; very close to anything "downtown"; and notably adjacent to the tram stop for access to the Central Station or points out of the center. Albert Heijn grocer around the corner. Also a lovely central sitting room with one of the best canal views in town.

Great and useful host in case you need tips for your stay.
