We stayed here for 2 nights in October. I wasn't sure what to expect. I could see from the website that it was someone's apartment. So I wasn't sure how that would work, exactly. Jan is the owner and he is fantastic. He couldn't meet us when we arrived but left directions for us to get a key and open the door. He met us later that evening and gave us ideas about what to see and some maps. Each morning he put out a simple breakfast. The value is fantastic. It is much more personal than staying in a hotel and you have a lot of space. It is a 2 bedroom apartment and so there is a lot of room and privacy. The location is not downtown, but a mile or so outside. This made it nice and quiet, but took a little more planning. Jan also lent us his bikes and that really made the trip special. Amsterdam by bike is HIGHLY recommended. We will stay here each time we pass through Amsterdam and we recommend it to others!
