I rented this apartment in march 13, excellent location on keizergracht in Amsterdam. The apartment is a bit smaller than the pictures would have you to believe, but it was a good size for two people. The appliances were pretty cool, there is a washer/dryer, an iron, and the sofacan turn into a bed. The bathroom is absolutely tiny, and I could barely turn in the shower, so I have to take points away for that. The oven takes some getting used to, it functions as a microwave and kind of a convection cooker. The bedroom is a good size, and at night it gets perfectly dark and you get a good sleep. For the smokers, there is also a little deck you can sit out on and relax.The biggest drawback was there was no maid service for the six days I was there, so you have to wash your towels and even though we requested more linen, didnt get any. I would stay here again, solid price for the location and the size.

Great location . A short tram ride away from Amsterdam Central then a few minutes walk from the tramstop we arrived early at the Apartments. Far too early but a call to the owner and they were only too happy to meet us and let us in early to drop off the bags so we could enjoy a walk around.
We returned after the Apartment had been cleaned and were more than happy with the standard and cleanliness. We all spent the next few minutes connecting up to the free Wi-Fi and unpacking for our two night stay. Our Apartment was nice and quiet at the back of the property and a very good size with plenty of seating. Everything is supplied, Crockery, Cutlery, Kettle, Toaster, Oven/Microwave, Hairdryer & Bits for the Bathroom.
The Apartment consisted of 2 Double and 1 twin room. Beds were very comfy and the Linen was nice and clean.
Bathroom was of a good size with twin sink and a Spa bath. The only downer was the pump noise every time someone flushed the loo.
Again on departure, as we werent leaving until late afternoon , owner was more than happy to keep the bags safe until we were ready to head back to the train station, which left us free to enjoy the rest of our last day.
Would recommend these Apartments to anyone.

Very nice ground floor canal house fairly central location in a quite part of the city. The building itself had other tenants/guests and the coming and going was quite noisy. We fed back they could use carpets in the hallway.

That aside, the flat was very spacious, clean, and done to a modern standard. The unit had all mod cons you could need (stove, fridge, dishwasher, washing machine, etc.) Good size bathroom and shower, comfy beds with decent pillows, black out curtains as well as sheer ones for semi-privacy, tv, internet and good amount of dishes. Great bathroom/shower, lots of space.

The person who greeted us was friendly and gave us tips on places to see and do. Check-in and out was seamless (different person checked us out). The property felt secure both front door and our unit.

Overall a very pleasant stay!

Just returned from a citybreak. Very pleseed with the location of the appts. Centrally located and only a few minutes walk to the local attractions. Appt finished to a high standard and very comfortable. The owners were very flexible to our needs and were happy to meet us early when we arrived and also to meet us in the evening to pick up out bags. The local area has a nice selection of bars and restaurants and had it not been so cold it wouold have been pleasant to wander around.

First trip to Amsterdam for us. Great apartments in a central location. Quiet and comfortable but only five minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of the centre of this friendly city. Temperature was belo or around freezing for much of our stay and it was great to be able to pop back to a warm and cosy apartment at any time of the day. The best bed we have slept in other than our own for some years and free wifi, which was welcome having been charged £5 a day on some of our previous holidays elsewhere.
We shall return!

We, my husband and I, stayed here 4 nights end of September 2012 in room 11. Check in was ok.
First impression of the apartment and the large balcony was nice. After a long flight we went to sleep.
Next morning:
- Fridge was full with junk from previous guests
- Dishwasher was filled with dirty dishes
- If you opened the dishwasher the plint underneath felt down
- no amenities
- hardly any towels
- The large balcony was not accessibly. Very slippery and no furniture.
- Most of the bulbs were not working

But what I found most unacceptable was the state of the mattresses. 2 very thin mattresses with no protector on them. The bedroom smelled like "human" juices. Same for the pillows.
I bought the protectors myself.If they get an inspection they will get fined big time, or even have to close until they have followed the regulations.

The entrance and staircases looks like they are under renovations, perhaps they have finished by now.

On check out I have discussed all the above items with one of their staff. He was very apologetic and appreciated the feed back. He called the manager and told me they were going to refund 1 night and look into all the problems we mentioned.

Needless to say, we never got the refund. I hope they used the 155.00 Euros to buy mattress covers......!
