“Excellent Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2010

Anne's Room. The name almost says all, it's a little room, or rather a tiny appartment in the middle of the most hectic part of downtown Amsterdam. On the left hand you have the red light district and on the right loads and loads of restaurants, shops, bars etc etc.

The room is located in a backyard, so even though its in the middle of everything its still quiet, at least when you have the windows closed. It has a small kitchen area, a table with two chairs, tv, dvd player and a descent sized bathroom.

If you arrive by car, as we did, you are asked to meet the hostes Kitty at her own house, this is so you can park the car for free, as you downtown Amsterdam easily can pay more for parking than for a hotel room. She was a very nice lady, who gave us the key and welcomed us to Amsterdam. She also gave us a few hints on the way.

There are some minor no so good things, the stair to the appartment are very steep, if you are not fit or have very heavy luggage you will struggle to get up there. There is very little opportunity to put away your clothing, there is one cupboard with one shelve available. Also one broken window glass was actually replaced by cardboard.

All together I would recommend this place if you want the action of the very intense part of downtown Amsterdam, If you are looking for peace and quiet I would find something away from the centre near a Tram line for easy access.

Within 15 mins walk from main station. Brilliant location. Welcomed by Kitty, who was friendly and helpful. Our room was up three very steep flights of stairs, which is typical of the area. The room was fine with very adequete shower/toilet, and kitchen area with fridge, stove top, small oven, kettle and coffee maker. Fresh flowers and a bottle of wine awaited us. In spite of being so close to the lively red light area, and it being a Saturday night with many large groups of noisy visitors it was very peaceful. My only disappointment was that there was no outside seating area, which had been mentioned in the advertisement, however in my opinion, the ventilation was fine as there were two windows which allowed a through draught of air.
