Accommodation in Amsterdam is expensive so I was very happy to find this modest-priced bottom floor apartment in a quiet tree-lined street. We had 1 bedroom (with extra bed free for my under 12 year old) and own fully fitted kitchen and bathroom. I stayed here with my 2 daughters August 2012 and it was a great place to relax in after a day out. The host was friendly and helpful and gave us maps with all the major tram stops/supermarkets/bike rental places etc marked out. He let us use his kitchen supplies and let us stay longer in the apt. as our flight was later in the day. We were a 20 min tram ride away from the centre (tram stop 5 mins walk away) 30 min bus ride from airport and 7 min walk from the beautiful Vondelpark. There are probably more luxurious and spacious places even closer to the city centre but you will pay highly for them. For the price we were more than happy and if the 3 of us went back, we would stay here again.
