“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

My boyfriend took me in a surprise trip to Amsterdam for my birthday and we stayed here. It was a great place to stay. The staff were really friendly. We arrived early in pouring rain and they let us leave our bags and lent us umbrellas until the room was ready. When we checked in the staff were really helpful and answered lots of questions we had about the best things to do in Amsterdam.

As well as friendly staff the room was amazing! We were in the studio apartment which was the smallest apartment there. It was on the top floor (there were a lot of stairs but completely worth the climb!). It had a large double bed, a kitchen area and a private terrace where you can sit outside for some drinks. We also had access to a shared roof terrace which was great.

Lots of nice touches - free biscuits, selection of teas and coffees, fresh flowers, nice decoration.

Would highly recommend and thank you for a lovely stay :)

This apartment is in a great location. Easy walk to everything, rail, the sights and food.
It's well equipped, except for air con, however the fans provided were adequate, even with couple of 36 degree days.
A comfortable bed and nice decor made the stay very pleasant.
The hosts were great. Offers to carry bags up and down the narrow stairs and to arrange cabs were much appreciated as were the welcome gifts.
It comes with our recommendation and will stay there again if we return to Amsterdam.

Excellent apartment, right in the heart of Amsterdam. We stayed only one night but on a short weekend break. Arvin, Hans and Martin were fantastic hosts, we had early drop off for our bags, and were able to leave them after check out to collect later while we visited some of the key attractions that we wanted to see before leaving Amsterdam. The apartment was spotlessly clean, finished to the highest standard. Everything had been thought of, including fresh flowers, fruit bowl, biscuits and coffee maker, selection of teas and the bed was so comfortable. The hosts were so welcoming and could not do enough to help with tourist maps, advice on where to go and what was going on. The local Neumarket square was so pretty and full of character, welcoming local cafes and bars along with a variety of eateries. We would have loved to stay longer and will definitely be staying again.

Room Tip: only 3 apartments one on each floor and rooftop terrace.

Artist House apartment is one of the finest apartment we stayed in Europe. It was very conveniently located with few mins walk to Dom Square. The apartment was spacious with nice decor. The bed was comfortable and room was quite. The attendants were helpful. I would recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Amsterdam.

Artist house apartments are situated behind central station (5-10 min walk) in the heart of Amsterdam. This was my first trip and location was key to ensure i could get everywhere on foot and make the most of my time!!! I was able to visit all of the places i wanted to and experience Amsterdam.
On arrival i gained a very welcome greeting, with friendly advise and knowledge of the area and what was on that weekend. The apartment is clean and has all of the amenities requried to have an enjoyable stay. They provided tea and coffee facilties and there is a small supermarket across the square if you wished to cook and provide for yourself. I cannot fault the apartment, comfy, cosy and all was catered for.
I have no hesitiations of recommending this apartment to anyone. I have two tips though, if you are getting flights please ensure you are ok if the apartment can care for your luggage until your check in (3:30pm approx) and or have something planned and in terms of sight seeing if you want to visit Anne Frank's house book a ticket on line in advance as the que goes on forever.

I found everyone at the apartment friendly and geniuine and a real asset to the apartment and Amsterdam!

Room Tip: All of the apartments are impeccable, the roof terrace is a lovely extra feature and would be lovely...

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.
