“Great location, but missing key amenities”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

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.

Room Tip: Go through one of the short stay apartment sites. They give full details on apartment size and locat...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

The apartment is in a quiet lane and is a 3 minute walk to the tram stop giving great access to the city centre. Dam Square and Centraal Station is less than 15 minutes away. Neighborhood has cafes, supermarket, markets, laundrettes, restaurants all to make your stay complete.
Stayed at apartment no 7 which is on the 3rd floor. Recently renovated with cutlery/crockery from Ikea. Was supposed to be equipped with microwave, freezer and washer/dryer. Had a bit of a phone 'discussion' with Short Stay. They obviously have not got their act together.
In spite of this 'shortfall' we enjoyed the comfort and location immensely.

Room Tip: Check in at Schiphol which is more convenient than their city location which is distant. Make sure y...
