“Fantastic Stay at Singel 96!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

What an excellent stay. Situated on the beautiful Singel canal and very central so the nearby districts are all within walking distance allowing pleasant strolls throughout the city. The owner, Carolina was extremely helpful and hospitable giving very well informed advice about where to go, what to see. We particularly enjoyed the recommendation of the organic market on the Saturday morning. Fantastic spacious apartment. A stay at Singel 96 is highly recommended!!!!

“Perfect! -can't wait to return.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We stayed at Singel 96 Sat - Tues in late Feb. The apartment is beautiful, stunning features and beautiful art. A fabulous location, perfect for long walks around canals and easy to find if you get a little lost!
Would 100% recommend this gorgeous apartment, for couples or families - the bathroom is divine and kitchen comes with everything you need.
Carolina is an amazing host, having been to Amsterdam before, we didn't need too much assistance, but some recommendations for local bars/ restaurants did come in very handy.
Thank you again Carolina for an amazing weekend!

I stayed with my wife and a couple of friends and we all loved the place. Perfectly situated in a central location, spacious and very comfortable, it was all topped off by an extremely welcoming and friendly host.

Singel 96 is highly recommended and we'll be back when we visit Amsterdam again.

“Wonderful Stay at Singel 96”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

After deciding to forego hotels and look for rental apartments and houseboats we found Singel 96 Bed & Apartment (on Flipkey). This was the best decision of our trip last August. Singel 96 is a wonderful, cozy apartment on the Singel canal and very centrally located. It is within walking distance of the Central Station and around the corner from the Ann Frank house. The owner, Carolina, is very helpful and accommodating. She helped us printout online tickets to the Rijksmusuem and gave us several great restaurant recommendations in the area. See my review of Max Restaurant. Communication is quick and easy via text or e-mail. We stayed 2 nights with my 12 year old son (family of three) and the apartment was very comfortable. There is also an Albert Hein grocery store a few blocks away to stock up for breakfast. Carolina had a pod coffee machine and an espresso maker available as well. Near the Jordaan neighborhood and close to tram lines. I would recommend trying Singel 96 instead of a hotel any time.

“A homely spacious apartment in perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Carolina made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived after a short stroll from the station. The apartment was spacious, yet cosy. It was really well equipped. Its in the basement of a typically tall and pretty Amsterdam house and you open the front door with a view of the canal and other equally enticing looking houses. We won't be hotel-ing it again next time we come. Staying in an apartment was far more fun, and importantly, value for money.

“Truly a Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013 for a stay in October 2013
1
person found this review helpful

We are a family of 4 vacationing for the first time in Amsterdam. We were searching for a house overlooking a canal to experience the local way of life. This place is chosen based on its proximity to almost everything we want to see - Anne Frank Museum, Dam Square, Maritime Museum, Nemo Science Center, Chinatown etc. and good reviews from past guests. Although there was some misunderstanding initially on the booking, Carolina was quick to rectify it.

With a map, which is provided by Carolina, it is very easy to find our way around though we are new here. As shared by other guests, it is close to shops, restaurants and Amsterdam Central station. We walked our way to all the attractions!

As for the house, it is clean, comfortable, has a spectacular view of the canal and has a well-equipped kitchen for simple cooking. We prepared our breakfast of simple instant noodles and sandwiches with ease. Overall, me and my hubby and my 2 boys are very happy with our stay. This place did not disappoint as it fulfilled what we were looking for. Hope to come back soon. It is truly a GEM on this part of the canal - Singel !
