We had a great stay at the apartment

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment very comfortable for the 5 of us. It had everything we needed. The location was fine as we don't mind walking to the center of the town and staying in a quiet part. We found the bikes to be very handy and highly recommend biking to get to know the city. Everything was as described and as we expected. Clean and comfortable. Thank you Martjin.

Patched up hovel

  • 1 of 5

Forget this place if you're looking for somewhere comfortable to stay while in Amsterdram. On arrival, you're greeted with 4 flights of winding stairs, so if you have large luggage, good luck.

A quick look around reveals a tired looking apartment with no attention to detail. Eventually, you'll find that the beds are terrible, the bathroom, with its badly designed shower stall and noisy but totally useless ceiling exhaust fan, and basin without hot water, suggest that 5 nights here is not going to be enjoyable. Basically, it seems that every time something breaks or fails here, it is patched up rather than repaired or replaced. And what is the idea behind putting the only tv in the bedroom of a 2br apartment? Makes no sense to me.

My advice - pay a little extra and get a decent place. You'll feel better for it.

Nice place, clean though not spotless. Well-equipped kitchen and view of a canal.

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, despite the four very steep windy flights of stairs that it takes to get up there.

Nice apartment for our Netherlands trip

  • 4 of 5

My family (3 kids, two adults) stayed in Martijn's apartment in June 2017. My kids ages range from 7 to 17. While staying at the apartment we saw the sights of Amsterdam as well as traveled to other cities within the Netherlands and Belgium.

The apartment is well located for our family in that it is away from the city center. It was nice to stay away from the crowds. The apartment is a short walk to the Jordaan district where there many good restaurants. There is a grocery store (Albert Heijn) that is a short walk from the apartment. The public transportation is very convenient. There is a regular bus to the Centraal Station as well as a tram that goes to the museumplein.

The apartment is fairly small. There was plenty of room for the five of us to sleep, but it was a bit tight for us to sit around and relax. This was not too much of an issue for us since we spent most of the time out sight seeing. The kitchen was nicely appointed. There is a clothes washer, but no dryer. There are several flights of stairs to climb from the entry, but this was not a problem for us.

The apartment worked out well for us in that it was in a less crowded area, was a short walk to restaurants, and had easy access to the train station.

The best route from schiphol is to take the train to Amsterdam central (15min.). From central station take bus 18 or 21 and step out at busstop Frederiks Hendrik plansoen (7-8 min/ask the driver). From there it is only 2min. walking to the apartment.

From the A10 (motorway):

Take junction Haarlem en follow the signs Haarlemmerweg/s103 direction s104/Bos en Lommer- Turn to the right to Van Hallstraat-Turn to the left to de Eerste Kostverlorenkade-take the second byway. Your are now on the Fagelstraat.

Boat trips are available and organise by the owner.
