This was my first trip to Amsterdam and I must say that I am very impressed. Monk Apartment's was recommended by a friend who stayed here during his past trips. We took the 4 bed room apartment and boy was it spacious and nicely decorated! Even though there were only 4 of us, the place could fit up to 8... More

14 of us stayed here for 3 nights in April as part of a stag do. The apartments were perfect for a large group. The beds aren't great, but it was clean and spacious and the locations was perfect. Henk was very helpful.

I stayed there with my wife and kid. The place was very clean and the staff was very helpful. We arrived early in the morning and were able to check-in early as there were no guests in the apartment. The location is close to the many touristic places. It is 5 minutes walk to the Dam Square. There are restaurants... More

Great location, clean, spacious - everything you need and want is on your doorstep. Supermarket, bars, coffee shops etc. Only a 10 minute walk to Central Station. Would consider staying here again and would recommend to others. Thanks Henk

I've been to the Netherlands (and Amsterdam) pretty frequently and I like to stay at the Monk. The location is pretty central to everything that you want to see - shops, "the nightlife" if you want to tram up to other areas of the city or hit Centraal station to move around the country. Some of my favorite places to... More

Monk Apartments provides a warm comfortable safe haven in the centre of Amsterdam. A group of us visits Amsterdam every year for the IBC trade show and after a couple of bad places we happened across the Monk Apartments. Since then we have been staying with Monk Apartments for over 10 years now. The facilities are clean, spacious and convenient.... More

Booked this (apartment E) as our first time holiday rental property - cannot fault! Booking was easy via Amsterdamstay.com, we arrived late but checking in was smooth. The apartment itself was clean, had all the basics needed for the 6 of us. Plenty of room, and the location is the best part - just minutes walking distance from most things.... More

I had stayed at monk not out of choice but was forced to as my booked apartment turned out to be a scam. The website that I booked from amsterdamstay.com had put me here. The location is perfect, just a few minutes away from Central station, close by the Red light area. For location I give it a 3. Well... More
