Very roomy apartment for a good location stay.

  • 5 of 5

Richard was very accomodating over email. The place was clean and family friendly. Right in the Red Light District. The noise from the street could be heard in the living room but the bedrooms were nice and quiet.

Location, location, location!

  • 4 of 5

This place was amazing. It was so close to absolutely everything we wanted for being first timers in Amsterdam. The apartment letter was not labeled when we walked into the building, but we were able to find it after trying the key. The apartment is large! Kitchen is beautiful and has a massive TV. Great windows with lots of natural light. The bed was slightly uncomfortable, but that was due to personal preference as the person staying with me seemed to enjoy it. Good communication with the owner and very easy to check in/out.

I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a nice apartment in the heart of a "hopping" part of Amsterdam!

A Disappointment

  • 3 of 5

While the apartment is spacious and in a great location in the center near the train station, there were a few problems. First, neither the promised keys or the promised person were there when we arrived. This resulted from several glitches but it was off-putting to try to figure out what to do with our luggage for several hours. Do we just sit there in the street and wait? We had foot massages, ate lunch and had hope that we could get in sometime. We had computers, but they were of little use when the WiFi was inside. Luckily, the restaurant had WiFi

The second oddity was that the owner has a friend who lives there between rental guests. So his things were in piles around the place. It just felt a little icky.

Third, the cleaners were on vacation and the friend was sick, so the apartment hadn't been cleaned. The friend's mother came by and she was helpful with telling us how to use the espresso maker. However, I am not sure she changed the bed or the kitchen towels and she only left two bath towels and no other linen. There was only a few sheets of toilet paper and that ran out in the first 30 minutes!

While it's great to have spices and condiments, the 8 open packages of butter and other unknowns in the fridge was disconcerting.

I wish I didn't have these complaints because the owner obviously has guests in mind with the use of WiFi, two cells phones for texting, and bicycles. The place is as others have described it with the odd shower and beautiful bath tub. The bed was comfy and the TV was huge!

Location parfaite

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement était tout à fait conforme à la description. Tout était très propre. L'équipement est tout à fait suffisant. Les contacts avec Richard et Seb ont été rapides, cordiaux et efficaces. l'appartement est spacieux et tès clair. La situation en plein centre ville et à 5 mn à pied de la gare très pratique. Nous recommandons vivement cette location.

Nearest Restaurant
10 Metres

It is an easy walk (even with luggage) from the Central station. This is well served from the airport, by the rail system. You will be advised about this on booking.

We provide a folder full of information about the best places to buy things, where to go, where to eat and special/secret information that only locals know!

We also provide two mobile telephone SIM cards which will call each other and text each other free of charge! So whilst in Amsterdam you can stay in contact with one another if you want to visit different places, or if you get separated/lost!

You can also provide the numbers to your friends/family in your own country, so that they can call you, without YOU having to pay roaming charges for receiving a call in the Netherlands.

Bike hire is available in the street from two companies. Yellow bikes (directly downstairs) for the uninitiated do great guided tours, starting at all times of the day. The Yellow bikes are also easy to find once parked.

For confident cyclists, feel free to hire true Amsterdam bikes from the discount bike rental shop in the middle of the street.

Please tell us if you have special reasons for your trip i.e. shopping/visiting historical sites/relaxing. We will provide individual information especially for you based on what you want to do in the city.
