Best Apartment (and Deal) in Joordan

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

My husband and I loved this apartment. The view of the canal from the livingroom was amazing. We stayed for ten days, and never once were we bored of gazing out of the huge windows as if they were one Dutch Master's landscape painting. The layout of the apartment is also well designed. For two people it was spacious. We had friends visit for dinner, with more than enough room for everyone to enjoy themselves. In addition, I loved the record player and 1980s albums, which was a special treat down memory lane. Marcel was also an amazing host. He let us into the apartment early (which not every host does, even if he or she didn't have guests the previous night) and he changed our towels in the middle of our one-week stay, so we could have clean ones. Who does that? Moreover, he gave us great recommendations for things to see and places to eat in the neighborhood. I should add that the Joordan district, where this apartment is located, just happens to be one of the most wonderful neighborhoods in Amsterdam. The apartment is also within walking distance to terrific shops, restaurants, bars, and the city center. Transportation to the museums is easy (though you could also walk). In short, this rental was fantastic across the board, and we would definitely come back here again, and again.

Wonderful host, great comfortable and quiet apartment

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Our host was amazing. He allowed us to check in super early because of our morning arrival and helped us in at 7am Sunday morning. The view and living area is large and couches comfortable with great views. The kitchen was a good size for cooking breakfast and snacks. The bedroom was quiet and the beds very comfortable. The apartment is only up one small flight of stairs and easy to climb compared to many traditional Amsterdam apartments. The shower is really nice and large with good heat and water pressure. The AH supermarket is literally 30 seconds around the corner and all the sights within 30 minutes depending on how far you are going. Marcel even provides use of the tram card which was so helpful especially if you want to go further away in the city. We had a wonderful stay! Thank you Marcel!

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

The apartment was lovely, very clean and centrally located to all of Amsterdam's attractions. Marcel was extremely helpful with public transit and the information he provided about Amsterdam. We were able to walk to most of the major attractions from the apartment, and Marcel also provided transportation cards for the public transit system. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Amsterdam and would highly recommend this apartment to others.

Quintessential Amsterdam!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This delightful apartment overlooks the widest canal in the western expansion of Old Amsterdam. The Keizersgracht canal is graced with many wonderful old houses, warehouses, churches and commercial buildings and variety of tour boats, salon boats, working boats and private watercraft large and small provides a constant show viewed through the three large windows looking down from the apartment. Plenty of space and amenities. The hosts are extremely helpful and friendly.

Would easily recommend anyone to enjoy this place, we stayed for two months . . . will do it again.
