Great stay and location
Liked our stay in Amsterdam.
Large apartment as a base in south Amsterdam for a family stay - great host from start to finish
This apartment is in the newer area of De Pijp south of the city centre. It is in a quiet location well away from the tourist crowds but it's very close to the Tram 4 route and only 15-20 mins from Rembrandtsplein. If you prefer walking its 15 mins to the Albert Cuypmarket and a little further to the museum square.
When the tram 4 route roadworks are complete it will also be an easy trip to Station/metro RAI / Europoplein via Roosevelt (currently about a 20min walk). If you plan to visit Keukenhof, you can get a combi-bus ticket from metro RAI so its very convenient for that.
We are a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children) and had plenty of space to relax after a day seeing the sites. There are two bedrooms (1 double and 1 single) and a fold out bed in the lounge. We put the fold out bed in the double bedroom so the adults could relax later in the evening while the kids slept.
The host communicated well on whatsapp with us (even during out stay) and even collected us from the airport for a small charge.
Lovely family! More than welcome next time again!!!
A convenience and nice apartment to visit Amsterdam
Although the apartment is not very large, it provided all you need for a short stay. It is closed to tram stations and connecting you to every part of Amsterdam in a reasonable time. It is not too far away to the city on foot, we did walk to the Central was not necessary but parking was not a problem in the square outside the building. The apartment did not have washing machine, so that it might have problem for a Station, Van Gogh Museum and other attractions several times during our stay. Car longer stay. The Dutch stair could be a problem, especially for aged people! The host, Kocum is a very nice person and he offered all the helps in our stay.
Great for quick trip
The flat is perfect for 3-4 people, and was very clean and comfortable-- perfect for a short trip. It is walking distance from Di Pijp -- a cute and trendy area of Amsterdam, but it's slightly further from the center of the city (most tourist attractions). However, depending on your preference, it is kind of nice to be away from all the tourists and see a more local/authentic part of the city, too. The only negative I would mention is the stairs up to the apartment are pretty steep, so I would not recommend for someone with an injury/physical disability. Otherwise, it is a great place to stay!
The apartment is owned by a single man. It is a bachelor pad. He is new to HomeAway and does not know exactly what is expected by his guests when renting his home. However, he was very accommodating when we requested more toilet paper. Prior to our arrival (4 women) he asked us to bring our own towels. We were traveling from the United States so space in our luggage was a problem. We purchased towels in Amsterdam and left them at the apartment so he would have them for future guests. It is advertised as sleeps 4. While this is technically correct, the fourth bed is a mattress on the floor. The apartment would be more ideal for 2 people and maybe a child or two. It is on the 4th floor and the stairs are quite challenging. It could be a problem for someone that may not be in good physical health. Overall Kocum was pleasant and the apartment was in a good location.
Un appartement pour 3 personnes maximum !
Contrairement à ce qui est annoncé dans l'annonce, l'appartement ne dispose que d'une chambre avec un lit double et d'une chambre avec un lit simple ne permettant de loger confortablement que trois personnes.
Nous étions 2 couples mais l'un d'entre nous a dû dormir dans le canapé (non convertible) faute de place suffisante.
De plus, chacun de nos faits et gestes sont espionnés par la voisine du dessous (spontanément très désagréable) et rapportés au propriétaire qui se montre assez intrusif lui aussi.
Difficile de se sentir à l'aise dans l'appartement quand on doit se justifier en permanence.
Je ne recommande pas ce logement.
