The apartment is conveniently located close to old town and the city square, about a 15 minute walk from Central train station. It was slightly off of a main street, so we rarely heard street noise except during the day. Many restaurants, shops, ATM, and supermarket close by.
The apartment easily fit three guests and was pleasantly decorated. We greatly appreciated how accommodating Bas was with our arrival/departure time, and he provided a nice welcome gift of wine and cookies for us. :-) The double bed and fold out couch were comfortable. A broad assortment of amenities were provided such as dishes, towels, washer/dryer, a few movies, etc. A resource book listed information about the neighborhood.
We would highly recommend staying in the apartment and it was perfect for us. We find Amsterdam to be easily navigated and English widely spoken, so we didn't have questions or other needs during our stay. It's a great home away from home.
The only caution - the water pump is in the main bedroom and makes noise with toilet flushes and shower usage. If your travel companions use the bathroom multiple times in the night be prepared for the noise. It wouldn't deter us from staying here again.
