This was a lovely place!
Apartment: It is perfect for a group of four to five people. There is one double bed in the back room and then two single beds in the main room. (When you walk in, the kitchen is slightly in front of you, and then main room/room with the single beds/sitting room are to the right.) The kitchen has dishes and silverware, a washer and dryer and a fridge (maybe more, although we didn't really use the kitchen.) One important thing to know is that in order to get to the bedroom, you have to go through the bathroom. So, you are in that bedroom, and someone decides to use the bathroom, you are stuck. Also, Frederic is super friendly, as is the other person who works with him. They will take their time to show you places of interest and to even draw them on the map!
Price: If you are not going in a group, you could probably find a cheaper place. (Price per night 160 + 15%; Total for the two nights is 368 euros)
Location: Great! The Jordaan district is unbelievably charming (there was an organic market right outside the apartment! - However, it is a little hard to find. The door is litterally right behind a cafe's seating area.) We spent much of our first day there just wandering around in the back streets. There are numerous pubs and restaurants in this area, although most of them serve Italian food - and the food was great, but it wasn't Dutch. The city is fairly small and it's easy to walk from district to district.
Anne Frank: It's small, but I still think worth the wait. Also, while the line outside tends to look fairly daunting, it actually moved fairly quickly. Our line wrapped fairly far around the building, but it still only took about 30 minutes before we were inside.
Rijksmuseum: There was also a wait for this, but again, it's worth it. Although, one thing to keep in mind right now is that most of the museum is under construction so the exhibit is limited.
