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.
Canal apartment in Buzzing Amsterdam?
Stairs to apartment were extremely steep, small ,and dangerous to walk up or down , much less carry bags, which all tourists have.
We were told it was o the first floor, and under impression no stairs. we were not told you enter on 0 floor. inside it was as expected. Top sheets were not on bed. Only bottom fitted sheet and comforter top, which is too heavy for sleeping under. The necessary sheet was located and added.
the hosts were very friendly and obliging when we contacted them about couple of snafus that can happen to anyone.
Dear Ed, I am very sorry about your problems with our stair and for an elderly person it's not convenient. But we do state very clearly on our profile that there is one staircase with exactly 24 steps so its not really fair to give us a low rating for having a staircase if we tell you in advance. As a canal apartment is Unesco World Heritage no elevators are to be found in the authentic canal apartments unfortunately.
Good location in Amsterdam.
