Good place for friends trip. We were four friends and everything was absolutely perfect. It was near the central station and 5 minutes walk from Dam square. The Wifi connection was not very good. I suggest to make it more powerful because I always had disconnections. The place's owner was great! If you want to get high without any problems,... More

Excellent location, nice, clean and well equipped apartment. Maya, the landlady, was nice and helpful, providing us with the map of the city and giving helpful suggestions what to see and where to eat. The place is 5 minutes walk from Amsterdam Centraal (train station) and is located on the border of Red Light District. There are dozens of restaurants... More

Few friends and myself wanted an apartment rather than a hostel so this was a perfect choice. It's right beside the train station so we were off the plane and in the apartment within 30mins, was great. The area is lovely, nice view and it's quiet compared to the rest of the city. The apartment itself was very clean and... More

Don't be put off by the steep stairs! We nearly were but if we had been we would have missed out. As everyone else has said the apartments are in walking distance of just about everywhere, they are clean and well equipped and Maya is really helpful. If you're looking for luxury you'd be better off booking a hotel but... More

Easy to find from the Train Station. The apartment we stayed at was on the second floor up a steep staircase. The staircase so steep, if I was wearing a dress, the person underneath me could see right up it. So...be warned. There is no common room or lobby. Unlike hostels, you don't get to meet anyone. The apartment was... More

Very good location situated about 10 mins walk from the main station. It is also very close to all the hustle and bustle of the main centre of Amsterdam. All trams then run from the station central so this is good for exploring the city. The Apartment: The Apartment we had was on the first floor (the stairs were very... More
