I found this hotel / apartment when I typed into google Unusual places to stay in Amsterdam. I would like to say the accommodation was fantastic and the area was very quite plus there are some great restaurants in walking distance with Café Amsterdam right on your door step. If you want a quite few days in Amsterdam I'd recommend... More

We stayed here for 7 nights. As we had been travelling for approximately 4 weeks by the time we arrived here, it was just lovely to have a place where we could make our own breakfasts, dinner, and have complete privacy. With its fully equipped kitchen (gas stove top, microwave, toaster, electric kettle and Nespresso machine, dining plates, etc.) and... More

Stayed for 6 nights. Had attended a conference held in the Westerpark just cross the street. The building is very special by itself. I especially like the sitting room at the second floor. The speaker has a line for my iPod so I could enjoy music there without using earphone, the acoustic effect was excellent. Sleep quality is superb, despite... More

When I went looking for a different Amsterdam accommodation I had no idea I would end up in this odd little place. Completely unique, charming, and peaceful. Small enough to feel cozy yet big enough to make you feel at home. For my full review see here: http://www.thislifeintrips.com/reviews/unique-amsterdam-accommodation/

We booked this hotel based on the reviews on trip advisor. it really lived up to expectation. The house is lovely. when standing outside it, you feel like a goldfish in a bowl as it is in the middle of three blocks of apartments, but once inside, you are in your own little provate bubble and it is great. Underfloor... More

I was in Amsterdam for a conference at the Westergasfabriek, and found this small, enticing hotel just 5 minutes away by foot (there are no other hotels in the immediate vicinity). Amazing! It has everything you need to live in its 3 compact stories: fully-equipped kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher, wi-fi, living area, comfortable bedroom/closet/bath. We arrived before check-in,... More

De Windketel is a one bedroom apartment on three floors just a 15 min tram from the Central Station. Completely furnished with kitchen, with all you need to prepare a full meal; you can move right in! Outside, it is quite unusual: a little brick tower, a converted steam valve for the pumping station across the street, located in a... More

What a 'Gem' of a place, we were originally looking to stay on a houseboat in Amsterdam but couldn't get booked. We then stumbled upon this place and are so glad we did. It is a fantastic compact but comfortable and out of the ordinary apartment. Not too far from the centre of Amsterdam, we cycled it most of the... More
