We stayed in the apartment belonging to Hotel Bema, it was located near the Overtoom tram stop on Eerste Constantijn Huygenstraat.
It was a bit of a pain having to go to the Hotel in order to be taken to the apartment, if I was going again I'd ask if they could meet us there.
Although, it wasn't too bad as the hotel and apartment are only one tram stop apart. (If you're looking for the hotel, take the 197 bus from the airport, straight to Museumplein stop, it's really close to the hotel and saves about 50euros on a taxi).
The staff were friendly and gave us a map and also had a rack of minicards we could look through for attractions' offers. Then they took us on the tram to the apartment and showed us around.
The apartment was basic and a little old-fashioned, re-decorating would be nice. However, it was pretty clean, not much dust, no mould in the bathroom, clean sheets etc. The living room was a decent size but the sofa was tiny. There was a table and chairs for four to eat at. And a very tiny, but working TV. No hotel comforts like a phone or hairdryer.
Clean towels were provided, (3 small bath towels and two hand towels between three people).
There was a double bed in the bedroom, with no room for anything else! And a single we had asked for in the living room. There wasn't a wardrobe, just a coat rack.
The kitchen had everything we needed- a hob, fridge (with freezer shelf), microwave, kettle, coffee maker, pans, utensils and cutlery.
The stairs leading to the apartment make it only suitable for young and/or fit people who can climb a lot of steep stairs.
The location is great as you can walk to Leidseplein or Museumplein in about 10 minutes. There's also a tram stop outside if you're feeling lazy.
And a beautiful chocolate shop just nextdoor.
