“the stairs is too steep”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Form most Asian people, Europe is considered expensive, including myself.
The apartment is okay, the bed, the shower, the mini kitchen, everything is okay. But definitely not the stairs. I and my friends were in the third floor. The stairs is too steep and narrow. if you bring many luggages, try to get the first floor!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We arrived very late (around 2am) due tu our late flight, Bettina had the courtesy to wait for us until then.

The studio is not that big but matches the description, the location is great you have everything you need really close (tram, bus, restaurants, etc...).

It was globally good, it is not perfect but it is just what you pay for.

The only negative point was that I requested a real double bed and had two single bed put next to each others, which is not what I asked for.

Otherwise everything was great, and the wifi does work properly.

We booked to stay at the apartments from 19th - 21st July on booking.com. Although check in time was 2pm I contacted the apartments directly to see if I could arrange an earlier check in as our flight arrived in to Amsterdam very early morning. Bettina responded promptly and said that she would meet us with the keys at 11am and said we could leave our luggage in the apartment while she cleaned it all up for us. This was a huge help as it meant we could explore the city without having to drag our suitcases with us. Bettina was lovely when she met with us and we found her to be extremely helpful answering any questions we had. The stairs up to the room are quite steep but this is the same for any other canal side hotel/apartment. We managed to navigate up and down them ok even after a few drinks! The apartment view was beautiful overlooking the canal, great for people watching. You are also allowed to smoke inside the apartments which was a real bonus for us and the apartment had everything that we required. Hairdryer, kettle, fan, fridge etc. It was also very clean. The area is really pretty and only a 10 - 15 minute walk in to Dam Square. Rembrandt Square is just a 3 minute walk away with lots of nice shops, bars and restaurants. I would definitely come back to stay here if I was visiting Amsterdam again and thanks to Bettina for being so helpful and agreeing to meet with us early.

Dirty rooms, unfriendly staff. Did not feel safe in the area and would only recommend to my worst enemies... Would never go there again nor recommend it to anyone i like. Wifi did not work as promised.

Room Tip: don't choose a room with these people

This hotel has 2 locations, the one we stayed at is Spuistraat 32 just few minutes walk from Amsterdam central.

The studio was big with cooking facilities, and very well appointed room and clean bathroom
This is very close to shopping areas, the owner stays next door, so for any problem they are just a bell away!

Overall it was vale for money and we saved on travel to and from the station.

Room Tip: Please do check the hotel confirmation, they have two locations, better to call before arrival

This is one of the places we could find with the cheaper price, private washroom and a nice view of the canal. The lady was very nice and helpful. We had no problem with wifi, water or anything. The lady responded our email very quick whenever we need something from her. The kitchen is small but enough for my wife to cook something for breakfast and the food for the kid.The bed is a good size for me, my wife and my 2 yr old daughter. The location is excellent, only 5 minutes walk to the Remembrant square and tram station. The stairs is very narrow probably typical Amsterdam apartment is like that, if you have young kid or huge luggage just ask for lower floor. Overall we are happy with our stay there.

We stayed here with friends after booking online and was staying at the Spuistraat aparments.

We was not given any receipt for our stay, and contact was limited only via a mobile phone number, when speaking on the phone shortly to someone about the wifi not working (which it did once or twice) we still didnt get anywhere.

There was live electrical wiring coming from the ceiling by the kitchen area, the kitchen was filthy with ash and dirt all over the hob, the cutlery was filthy too and un-usable.

The shower door was hanging off its hinges, and the bathroom was dirty with mould on the tiles and shower sealent around the tray.

The leg on one of the chairs was badly repaired and when sat on bent and snapped.

The area is noisy and opposite a brothel so be warey about this also. The apartment is dark and dingy and not clean - avoid at all costs.
