“Loved this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

We had 4 nights in Amsterdam and this was the perfect place to stay for us. It had everything we needed and we felt at home. It is a great location close to the Museums and tram system and we could easily walk to everywhere without any trouble. We had a suite on the 3rd floor but as there is an elevator it was no problem. It is a quiet residential neighbourhood and our windows opened to the back. We were happy to make our own meals especially breakfast and with the grocery store 2 blocks away we just picked stuff up on our way back to the flat. It was very comfortable and the hotel that manages the apartments were easily contacted by intercom or phone and were very helpful. The hotel is only a few tram stops so we took our bags there after we checked out and before our flight. I would definitely stay here again.

we moved to this flat after we found that our hotel was way too expensive and far from the centre, and i wish i have booked this place from the beginning but it was half business trip half leisure.
the apartment is bigger than a hotel room, has a modern kitchen and bathroom, gets cleaned and towels changed every day. good location as it's 1 minutes walk for a street with lot of restaurants and cafes, one big supermarket is at 10 minutes walk, the Rijks and Van Gogh museum 15 minutes, and the tram station is like 3 minutes walk, so fantastic location !
the building doesn't have a reception on-site ,but they're a phone call away and always very happy to help.
we were provided with cot bed for our little one that was already in the room when we arrived. Wifi is already included in the price and TV has few english channels so you wouldn't miss the news etc, the kitchen has a fridge, microwave/oven, hob , dish washer and a senseo coffee machine, hair dryer and buetooth music player are also provided and i don't remember if an iron was there too. in the bathroom you have hand washing liquid and shampoo and body gel dispensers, shower caps too :) . Overall we were really pleased with the service we received and i highly recommend it.

Room Tip: we were in apartment 5 with big windows which i liked

Stayed here for 3 nights in a room on the second floor. The hotel is located in Museumplein, close to several art museums and in a quiet street. It was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle. I felt safe despite no reception. The room is great - big, quiet, comfy beds and gets cleaned daily. Take bus 197 from airport to Museumplein. It's €5 each way. Take a right on Van Baerlestraat and then a right on Nicolaas Maestraat. It's a 5 minute walk from the stop. Trams are really close by, too. The only thing to note is A/C. Not sure the rooms have it so check if you come during summer. We didn't need it as the weather was pleasant and there was a fan. I would stay here again. It was fantastic!

The apartments are very well located for visiting Rejks museum, Van Gogh museum, mosern art museum and Concert Gebauw. Clean, well furnished, fresh. I had only one problem - total idiot at the reception, now the reception is not at the property, it is 10 km away. You connect to the reception by ringing the bell next to the entrance door.

Unfortunately for me the person who answered my call could not find my fully prepaid reservation. This type of things happen, but this one did not want to make an effort to investigate the issue, just kept telling me to go away because he had no record of my reservation and the property was sold out, he refused to buzz me into the lobby. Finally another guest came out and let me in, then I found inside an envelope with my name and the keys to the apartment. So it all ended well. I did call from the road few hours earlier to tell the property exactly when I am coming and confirmed the details so that must have helped to prepare an envelope for me, but when you run into a receptionist who is really indifferent to the fact that he is sending out on the street without a place to stay after you paid for it, there are not many things you can do to secure your stay.

I loved the location. It's on a quiet, tree-lined street. The windows are beautiful and look out upon the trees. The apartment we rented (2nd floor) had a giant tulip painting on the wall that instantly gives you the feeling that you are in Holland. The other decor and amenities were equally pleasing. It just has a good "feel" to it, and I was comfortable immediately.

It's also nice having easy access to the hotel staff which is not always so convenient when renting apartments. For instance, we asked if they could arrange a taxi for us on our departure day, and the hotel front desk staff took care of it for us.

For groceries, the closest big store is the Albert Heijn -- a 5-10 minute walk -- at the Museumplein (lower level of Stedelijk Museum).

In terms of the floorplan, the only drawback is that the bedroom area is separated from the living space by only a partial wall -- not a separate room. Oh well, I guess we can't become too comfy or we'd never return home, right?

Comfortable apartment, conveniently located. If you are coming from the airport, you may reach it by taking bus 197 which stops at Museumplein. Get off when you see the concert hall. From the bus stop it is a very short walk to the apartment. Therefore it is easy to get back to the hotel, go to Keukenhof, etc. However, as it is not near the canals, it does not feel like you are in Amsterdam. As a personal preference, being a tourist I would prefer to stay near the canals and enjoy the charms of being in Amsterdam. The room is clean, bed comfortable, no complains, really.
