“Little treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2011

Two nights in Raamgacht 1, studio apartment with separate kitchen. The website is completely accurate on all counts. As to the bells they come from the HUGE church that is behind the building and did not start until 10:00 having stopped at 22:00 the previous evening.
It is a wonderfully peaceful setting overlooking the quiet street and canal, yet only a short walk to the hustle and bustle of the centre.

I can't believe I didn't write this sooner. We stayed in the Korenblomen~ and it was perfect for two. Spotless, comfortable, a perfect location (just a few blocks outside the Red Light district but on a delightful, quiet canal street). Worth every penny. Enjoy Amsterdam without the busy confusion of a hotel.

Everything about our stay in the Amber apartment was perfect. The street below with the large windows opening onto the canal was memorable. The loft bed was quite comfortable and the bathroom was newly updated and very clean. We really enjoyed having the kitchen in the apartment so we could prepare some meals. Everything here was perfect for us and we hope to return someday. These apartments definitely have character and I fully recommend staying there.

It's hard to find decent accommodation in Amsterdam but I found this one with a lot of searching on the web and have to share it. There are 3 separate apartments in the same loction. I chose Raamgacht 2 as it was 1 bedroom and I have to say it was much better than anticipated. Located on a quiet canal in central Amsterdam just a few minutes walk to Dam Square. This place gives you loction without the noise. It is on street level so no steep steps to climb. The website is very acurate in regards to pictures. It is tastefully decorated with everything you could possibly need. Everything is provided from linen to cutlery, crockery, furniture, iron, free ADSL and WiFi, tv ,dvd, stereo. Pretty much just move in and feel at home. Fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer and great heating. This particular apartment has a seperate bedroom where as the other 2 are studio. You have your own street front entrance and own telephone line. The host who lives upstairs is very welcoming and helpful and unless you have a problem you are not disturbed. There is a fantastic supermarket around the corner, "Albert Heijn" which has all your needs for self catering.

Best....Location, walking distance to everything central, washer/dryer, comfort, privacy, feeling at home.

Worst....Bells ringng constantly from a church or somewhere continuously. I have no idea where they come from. Does make you feel like you are in Europe though.
