Perfect little home away from home!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I booked this place for 4 nights and it worked out perfectly. It was exactly as shown in the pictures, all the way down to the Nespresso machine in the kitchen corner (which we used daily)!

It is on the top floor of a typical dutch home, and had everything you needed (though we only ate breakfast in). The only downside was that it was on the top floor! The stairs up are quite narrow and steep, but this is the norm in Amsterdam - not recommended for those with mobility issues.

But once in the space, the room is perfect for two. The bed was a step up, but a none issue for my wife or I.

Only negatives were it was a little dusty (so not ideal if you have very sensitive allergies), and the bed is two mattresses together to make one larger bed (so a bit of a dip in the middle). That said, it met our needs perfectly.

The owner did not meet us, but arranged for the women on the first floor to let us in. She was helpful and ensured we had towels, told us where the grocery store was, etc. We paid upfront once we arrived - interestingly, the owner took us at our word that we would show up ... no deposit required which says a lot in this day and age.

With respect to location, it's not in the trendiest area, but a very easy tram to most sites (museums, Heineken Experience, Jordaan, Central station), and a good 15 min walk to most everything else (shopping street, Remembrant Platz, trendy areas). When combining both means of transport, getting around was a breeze and we visited everywhere we wanted with ease. We didnt get bikes, but they would have made getting around a breeze!

I would recommend the place as it was fairly priced (we were there in November) and a good home base for a few days in town. If you want to be in the action, this may not be for you, but it worked out great for us!

Super !

  • 4 of 5

Superbe séjour dans ce bel appartement situé tout en haut de l'immeuble.

Un propriétaire disponible qui répond aux interrogations avant notre arrivée, un contact facile avec la personne chargée de nous accueillir.

Seul bémol, une lumière du soleil trop présente le matin pour ceux qui seraient tentés par une grâce matinée.

Un bel espace lumineux, récent et fonctionnel, idéal pour un couple.

Tout le matériel fonctionne très bien (excellente connexion WiFi...).

Bref, je recommande cet appartement !

A louer sans hésiter !

  • 4 of 5

Nous sommes restés 1 semaine dans ce studio. Il est idéalement situé. Juste 15 min à pied de l'opéra. 30 minute à pied de centraal station. Le quartier est très calme.

si besoin le métro est au bout de la rue. Il y a un supermarché à 2 min à pied.

Le studio est au dernier étage (4eme) d'un immeuble typique. Il ne faut pas avoir peur des escaliers étroits.

La décoration est parfaite et il y a tout le nécessaire pour passer un agréable séjour.

Le lit est immense ( 2 matelas de 90cm accolés)

Attention à ceux qui veulent dormir dans l'obscurité la plus totale. Le fenêtres de toit ne disposent pas de rideaux occultants.

Really nice apartment, and ideally situated

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights at John's apartment and we had great time there. It is ideally located, just near the center of the city. You can go anywhere by foot, and there is a supermarket at 5 minutes walk. The apartment is on the last floor of a typical dutch house, which implies that you have narrows stairs, so it's not really easy if you have many luggages, or mobility problems. Except this detail it is really pleasant, with a nice decoration, a beautiful view over the canals and you can find all you need for your stay. The announcement perfectly matches with the apartment, and I would definitly recommend it for a couple who want to discover the city easily.
