What more is there to say? The other reviewers have sold the virtues of these apartments and we totally agree. We stayed in the Guest room for 2 nights and the Patio Apartment for 3 nights and it was perfect for our working visit. The short walk from Central Station is very convenient and the facilities were fantastic. A short walk to cafes, restaurants and a supermarket; and a great place to base yourself when visiting the city sights.
I wouldn't recommend the Patio Apartment for the elderly or anyone with a physical disability - the stairs to the basement are steep and curved. The guestroom on the top floor is spacious, and has its own entrance. The toilet is located inside the owners apartment (but discretely set apart from their living area) - some people might find this a bit inconvenient. The owners were very obliging and carried our suitcases up and down the stairs. We'll definately be staying here again!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Old Harbour Apartments offers you a choice of a guestroom and two apartments: the Patio Apartment and the Roof Terrace Apartment. The apartments, in fact the whole house is beautifully restored and decorated by one of Amsterdam's architects. Still you can see the traditionally front and rear house which are so typical for houses in the 17th century. ... more less
