“Terrific apartment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Great base. Slightly far out of the city, but we used a transport pass and we got everywhere with ease. Even when the storm halted the trams and trains. Then it was a definite advantage being on a bus route to the airport. We also purchased a museumkaart rather than the iamsterdam card as we were there for 6 days and it worked out much better value.
The apartments were clean and spacious and had everything we needed for our stay. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, particularly checking up details of the buses when the trains to the airport stopped during the hurricane.
I love Amsterdam!

Very comfortable beds, clean room and nice view from the windows. Stuff could be a little more helpful, whena asking some city informations.

Use bus or train to get to center. Using metro and tram will take you about an hour!!

Dear KYRIAKOS80,

thank you for your review.

Your comment regarding our staff has been discussed in within the front office team. Our staff is always there to help you.

We hope you will return in the future and give us the opportunity to offer you a new experience.

The quickest way to Amsterdam Centre is by train (in the night by bus), metro, tram, bus can bring you to specific locations in Amsterdam.

Kind Regards,
Thijs Voerman

Me and my girlfriend stayed at a studio apartment for five days and loved the facilities, the service level overall and the staff's attitude. Good value for the money. Would recommend the place for anyone that fancies a getaway. Amsterdam city center was easy to reach, being only 20 mins away by tram.

Great apartment hotel! The fact that it is not in the city center is not a problem as the train/bus/tram station is just a 5 minute walk away. The room was clean and quite spacious-I stayed in a studio-with comfortable bed and modern furniture. The staff at the front desk extremely helpful and polite. There is a vending machine in the reception area with a small selection of salads and main dishes that make up for the lack of a hotel restaurant.There are two restaurants nearby but they serve until about 9pm.There is a small restaurant at the station that stays open till later. I will definetly stay there next time I visit Amsterdam.

The staff here were very friendly, the apartment was clean and affordable. It was walking distance from a train station. We opted for a taxi which was approximately 20 euro to get to city center. The parking was approximately 20 euro. When it was all said and done I should have just paid extra for a hotel in city center. We did that on our last visit and it was worth the money to stay within walking distance. But, if you are a single person sharing a place with multiple people and you are watching your money, then this is truly the place to stay.

This is a great apartment hotel. Very, very comfortable and great beds and furniture Front desk very good and helpful.. 5 minute walk to train, tram and bus station. Wonderful, clean and comfortable facility.
Will definitely stay here next time. Not for people that want to be in the center of Amsterdam and are willing to pay the price of a good hotel there that would be atleast 3 times the cost of "Identity apartments."
A total pleasure. The only small complaint that I had is that the water pressure is a bit weak....
