My husband and I stayed at Bickersbed with our three adult children for 3 nights. We were asked to contact Maria by phone on arrival to airport or central station and we were promptly met by her at the apartment. She was helpful and friendly. The apartment was perfect for us, we were given an extra bed as we were 5. The rooms and bathrooms were nice and clean, the beds particularly comfortable. There is unlimited free internet access, which is a bonus. This is a nice area with easy access to central station and just two minutes from the charming Haarlemmerdijk and Haarlemmerstraat with its quaint shops, delis, cafes, bars and restaurants. There is also a nice supermarket where you can buy everything you need, although we only had breakfast in the apartment.
It is particularly suited to a family or two couples who know each other, as there is not much privacy between the two apartments (upstairs and downstairs).
I would not hesitate to stay at Bickersbed again next time I visit Amsterdam.
