“Great Place to Stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We got to the apartments and were met straight away by the owner who quickly got us checked in. The apartment itself was huge, and very clean. There were 4 of us and the apartment slept 8 people so we had a choice of beds! The bathroom was really nice, but we had a problem with the shower, so we let the owner know and within minutes of letting him know he was at the apartment to help us. sort it out. The only thing that didn't work very well was the jets in the shower.

Unfortunately the night we spend there, there were kids in the apartment above us and we could hear them charging around and screaming which made the experience a bit less enjoyable.

In terms of location it was near to everything. A tram stop was about 100m away and Centraal station was a 15 minute walk or 5 minute tram ride and there was a supermarket just outside of the apartment.

The only thing you need to be aware of is that there is a 200 EUR deposit you have to pay on arrival and that has to be paid in cash, so don't get caught out.

If i were to visit Amsterdam again I would definitely stay here again!

Overall a decent apartment in a good location. This is an okay apartment with a few words of warning to fellow renters. First, the apartment owner does NOT accept ANY credit cards...NONE of the websites that advertise this property state this when booking a room. When the owner meets you to check you in he WILL expect CASH only for payment. This did not cause a problem for our trip but did catch us off guard, and I feel the need to warn other potential renters who this could affect adversely...bring cash with you when you check in. DO NOT STAY HERE IF YOU NEED TO PUT THIS ROOM ON A CREDIT CARD TO HELP SUBSIDIZE YOUR TRIP!!!
The staircase is very steep to get to 2nd and 3rd floors, if you have a problem with stairs, this is not the place for you. If you will be bringing large, heavy or awkward luggage, this is not the place for you...there are 40 very steep stairs to the 3rd floor. This apartment does not have blinds to block out the morning sun, bring an eye mask. If you are a light sleeper, bring ear plugs. The apartment is not insulated well, and you can hear EVERYTHING that is happening on the street below.
On a positive note, the apartment is spacious and would easily sleep 6 people. Be warned, 4 people will be sleeping in the same large room. This apartment is also within easy walking distance to the flower market, many restaurants, clubs and shopping.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2011

stayed for three nights with two friends for a city break. been to amsterdam many times and much prefered having own apartment to hotel. apartment is in very central location however it is above two gay bars which are open until 3am. noise is a issue in living room but not so much of an issue in bedrooms. there is also a lot of noise in morning when the bars are clearing up. This being said amsterdam is a noisy place at the best of times and with use of earlugs i slept fine. we were also up partying late so it might be more of an issue for others.
in terms of the apartment it is nice, clean and kitchen is well equiped. the stairs into and within are extremely steep and are a bit of a hazard. took 2 of us to get case up stairs. while most stairs are steep in amsterdam these are more like a ladder. living room was ok could have been cleaner, kitchen good. main bedroom exceptional, second one a bit on small side. one major issue is that bedrooms and shower room are on top floor but toilet is downstairs in livingroom/kitchen/study level. this is a pain in middle of night.
overall i found it good value and service from stayamsterdam was good. however as smokers we were not happy to be told we could not smoke especially as advert clearly stated you could. just had to go to more coffeeshops instead!
