“Lovely apartment that made Amsterdam stay more memorable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

We stayed for 2 nights in 2 apartments. Arvin, Hans and Jonathan were wonderful hosts. They really went out of their way to make the arrangements easy for us...early bag dropoffs, late luggage pickup and a taxi ready for the airport.
The apartments were very comfortable and tastefully decorated with attention to detail for every need...including nespresso coffee and also teas. The location was also perfect...walking distance from various hotspots and also near the Metro. Highly recommend this as an option for a comfy, relaxing stay in Amsterdam.

It was our first visit to Amsterdam and we were eager to find a comfortable apartment for exploring the city. The result exceeded expectations - it was just wonderful. The apartment is centrally located, within walking distance to all attractions. No noise, quiet and comfortable, with a wonderful design.

Lovely weekend spent in Amsterdam, and the apartment was just a plus to the whole experience, great place to stay, clean, modern, perfect position, it is a self service location which provides an well equipped kitchen, nice selection of espresso,tea and some biscuits on the house. Good communication, flexible check-in and -out with prior agreement. Really didn't find any negatives. Thank you

Thi is not a room but a small flat . .
it is located in the center. . you have to get an appointment to have the keys then you are free
As independent apartment there is no reception and not services at all.
The guy (manager? owner?), Arvin, was very kind and professional
The TV is in the sitting room (pros and cons)
All the furniture is new, nice fresh roses on the table
Ot summerize: Clean and central location, a lot of privacy if you desire it but No services at all . .

Wonderful location in the heart of Amsterdam, on a quiet street, close to the Red Light District and Chinatown, with beautiful common terrace on the roof. Room very nicely furnished with perfect service. Very romantic place. Thank you!

We booked this accommodation entirely by accident, out of a desire to experiment with something more than just a normal hotel. Boy were we in for a surprise!

This little apartment is literally a home away from home. The couple who run it are nothing short of amazing, and their reception was impeccable. The apartment was very tastefully decorated, and needed absolutely nothing additional on our part (other than our own food and clothing).

Although taking up luggage can be a challenge, it is absolutely normal for an old city like Amsterdam; most houses are very narrow so staircases tend to be steep and narrow. This should come as no surprise to anyone who has lived or traveled extensively in Europe.

Overall, we have vowed we would never stay anywhere else in Amsterdam given the choice.
