Location was great--on a quiet street outside Central Amsterdam, but easy access to main sights as it is near intersection of two tram lines. Close by lots of nice cafes and restaurants--you can live like a local and pay a lot less for meals than in more touristy areas. Apartment is in a newly renovated building and is clean and spacious. Has a nice, comfortable "real" king-sized bed (not the usual European twin beds put together). But, in their haste to get this place on the market, the proprietors missed many, many important details. There was only one armchair in the apartment--strange as it is clearly for 2 persons. Website we booked through advertised a dishwasher--there was none, in fact, not even a rack for drying dishes. One of the websites advertising this apartment claims it has a microwave--there was none at the time we visited (May 2013). Bathroom was missing a towel rack so we had to improvise by hanging bath towels by the bed. Finally, communication was poor. We were left to believe that we would have to survive on one roll of toilet paper and one set of towels for 8 days. The apartment was serviced halfway through our visit, but not before we had bought extra toilet paper. Fortunately, an understanding supermarket clerk gave us a refund for our unopened package. Also missing are details on how to work the stove, TV, and heating / cooling system. This property has a LOT of potential, but the management needs to get its act together with these little items.
