Traveling with 3 people is frequently a hassle when it comes to hotels, so I booked the Heemskerk Suites based on that and the great reviews on Trip Advisor. The reviews were right--we absolutely loved it. First on the list of things to love is Norman! He greeted us when we got there with a map on which he proceeded to mark things we might want to see and good places to eat in the area, and answered our questions. He showed us the apartment and where everything was and explained how things worked. Every morning when we left he greeted us and answered any questions we might have.
The apartments are located in a lovely and very quiet neighborhood. It is very convenient to the trams which stop a few blocks away in front of the Concertgebouw. Right near the tram stop is a supermarket where we did our shopping. And it is very close to two of the great sights in Amsterdam, the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum.
The apartment itself was lovely. We stayed in the Air suite, and loved the balcony. It looks out over a beautiful garden with birds chirping. The jacuzzi tub is terrific after a long day of sightseeing. I slept on the sofa bed which was very comfortable. We also loved the strong and reliable wifi. And since this was in the middle of a month long trip, the clothes washer and dryer were a godsend.
I really can't recommend this place too highly. We enjoyed it immensely! P.S. For lunch, try Le Pain Quotidien a couple blocks away (recommended by Norman)--it has scrumptious salads.
