We liked the apartment very much. While it is centrally located, it is in the Redlight District and a very heavy tourist area. So we spent most of our time away from that area. It was convenient to get to all the other areas from there and the Anne Frank House among with many other things to do are within walking distance. The apartment was well stocked with kitchen necessities, cleaning supplies, garbage bags, toilet paper, and a Nepresso machine with pods.
The bed is large a Queen by US standards and very comfortable. Our son was provided a real twin mattress and he slept very well. You don’t get much noise from the busy street at all because the bedroom is at the back of the apartment.
We were allowed to get in early which helped immensely after a long international flight. My only criticism is that there was very little light in the bedroom as my lamp didn’t work and no mirrors making it difficult for three people to get ready. Otherwise our communication with our host was great.
Great location, beautiful apartment
Canal apartment is walking distance to the Palace & Dam Square.
Easy access to all sights and train station. Red light atmosphere on door steps nearly, but also a block from very beautiful idyllic streets. Quiet bedroom in back, a plus considering party noise on street. Great dinner at Asian Fusion.
Light filled, comfortable apartment in the heart of everything!
My husband and I stayed in Christina's apartment for the three days we were in Amsterdam and it is a fantastic base of operations for anyone visiting the city. It is close to everything you would want to see there; the Anne Frank House and museums are only about a mile to a mile and half walk away; there is a great little coffee shop on the corner for breakfast and a supermarket a five minute walk as well. Christina is a wonderful host and left us a welcoming bottle of wine as well as great recommendations for places to eat that were close by; she answered all questions very quickly and the keys were easily picked up and dropped off at a little store around the corner. It is on the very edge of the Red Light district, so if that is something that might bother you, just be aware. And while we were fine with it, the stairs leading up to the apartment are very steep (as were most of the staircases it seems in the homes in the city!) so if you do have problems with stairs it might not be the place for you. All in all, we had a wonderful stay in this beautiful apartment and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Amsterdam!
Quirky but nice
Nice apartment for a stay in Amsterdam. Very close to Red Light District and tons of places to eat and drink. Canal in front of apartment is under construction. We checked in early and the bags could not be dropped at the specified location. We improvised and found a different place to hold our bags. Apartment manager needs to update her instructions for arriving guests, but otherwise a great place to stay!
The location couldn’t have been more perfect. Right in the heart of everything. Apartment was fully equipped with everything we needed and more. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because of the steps leading up to the apartment. I had read the reviews so it wasn’t a surprise for me. However, for people that don’t read reviews I think it needs to be made clear in the actual description on VRBO. I’m in my mid 60’s and thankful I was able to get up and down the stairs without any problems. I highly recommend the apartment and would stay there again if I went back to Amsterdam and it was available.
Hi Sonja, thank you for your wonderfull review. We do mention that we have a staircase and also exactly the number of steps on our listing.
