I came here on my hen party with 14 other ladies. We took up most of the apartment block and i can safely say we were all happy with our rooms. I think i drew the short straw in the attic as there was no full length mirror or a fancy TV like in the others but it was fine. All rooms were clean, comfortable, nice decor and we were more than happy to share a kitchen, shower room and toilet with my friends. I think it's a brilliant, affordable idea for big groups. Alex was very friendly and even provided us with some maps. His other member of staff assisted me in booking a taxi. The apartments are definitely not for the elderly. You need to be fit to make it up 56 stairs to the top of which are steep however i found out this is the norm in Amsterdam. The apartments are located in a pictoresque, quiet location and is very different to the centre. Beautiful setting. I would definitely recommend.
