I stayed here in January and it has a few good things and a few bad things to say about this place. At first we thought we had the wrong place as the apartments main door is located down a strange side street next to a what seems to be popular coffee shop. As I called the number we had... More

Well, where to start in describing this apartment. Overall it's poorly equipped and hard to get to - 87 stairs and walkways. We saw mice running freely in the lounge area! Pluses- it's near the station and there's hot running water... Negatives- it has mice, very basic facilities, little kitchen equipment and lots and lots of steep stairs. We weren't... More

It's difficult to explain just how bad this apartment was - we booked it for 3 nights for around €700 - and the fact we left at 7am the morning after arrival explains all you need to know. Firstly the minor things - previous guests rubbish was found in most drawers and cupboards, towels were dirty with black marks all... More

apartments were great, very spacious, great location, the guy who met us with the key was helpful if needed and just let us get on with our trip which was good, 5 min walk from central station, all in all I recommend.

If you don't like climbing stairs this is not the apartment for you. The location is great, right across from the canal tours, grasshopper is a 2 minute walk, and really easy to navigate the city from here. We were met by Michél who was really friendly and informative, thanks Michél! Who explained the in's and out's to us. Be... More

You would not know the apartment was there, its just a door on a back street. Arrival: - We arrived at 15:00 rang the buzzer for concierge and no answer.... More

I booked this apartment for my son and four friends. They were a mixed party of 19/20 year olds who earn very little. My son is an apprentice earning £95 week and he saved up hard to go on this break. Once they had checked in he rang me quite upset because the greeter had told him that something had... More

I was not going to write this review as thought it may have been a one off, but we also were robbed from these apartments by some with a key! My advise would be to avoid this complex - Amsterdam has so much more to offer than spending your short weekend in the police station! Very disappointing!
