Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Clean and organized. Clear instructions. This place is located in an interesting part of Arnhem. It is close to a grocery. The host was clear, responsive and helpful. The keyless entry was great

Great accommodation, ideally located.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for two nights to enable visits to the Arnhem bridge, the Airborne Museum (Absolutely excellent) and the Netherlands outdoor museum (Excellent). The house is mid terrace but there is no noise from anywhere. The house is spacious and very clean but there are typical steep Dutch stairs to the bedroom. The downstairs loo is a little cramped so anyone with limited mobility should be aware. There is a small back 'garden' with a sunny aspect and it's about 20 mins walk to town with a small supermarket along the way. There appeared to be no English TV channels available (may have been user error!) but WiFi was fast enough to watch via a laptop. The owner was extremely helpful and quick to respond to queries. Deposit returned same day.
