“Amazing stay in the penthouse!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

Myself and two lads had the immense pelasure of being situated on the top floor.
Stairs are immensley steep but it adds to the character.
All the bits you need, in more ways than can be mentioned :o)
Facilites were more than ok, shower worked well, cooker did the job and all the bits needed to make a nice bacon and egg sarnie in the morning were on hand.
The welcome was unique in every way and the very nice chap that showed us around reccommended some great locations to view.
Highly suggest this place for a proper chilled and relaxed time!!!!!!

Room Tip: Supermarket just down the road. Get some essentails for sarnies and save a fortune.

Got back from amsterdam monday evening it was me and 3 other lads and had a brilliant time, it was my 4th time there and the funky chicken is by far the best place ive stayed. The room was spacious with everything you could need and only a very short walk into the main part of amsterdam, Sonia was very helpful and if there was anything we needed we just had to ask thanks Sonia !! We got a nice welcoming gift when we got to the appartments which was also fantastic ;-). I highly recommend the funky chicken to anybody going to amsterdam and also the price was very good. I wouldnt stay anywhere else now and will hopefully back before the end of the year.

I came back from the Funky Chicken this morning and had a great 2 day break.
We landed into Amsterdam on the morning of the 3rd, found the station pretty quick and made our way onto the train. It was only a short journey on the train to the city centre where we followed the good instructions given to make our way to Funky Chicken. When we got there we were welcomed brilliantly by the lady on the bottom floor. She showed us our rooms and gave us some magazines to help us with what to do during our stay, she asked if we smoked, gave us a present when we answered yes and then took the money and the deposit. We definitely felt very welcomed by her. We didn't see her too much but that was because we only stayed for two days and wanted to make the most of it but she said to come see her whenever we needed her and gave us her number. Because our flight was really early in the morning we came to some arrangement with her about the deposit and the keys, she was very very helpful.
The room was great. Had two single beds that we made into a double, and two sofas. There was a dining table, some food left over from past guests, we also left some food in the fridge and cupboards, there was a hob and a microwave and plenty of cutlery. The bathroom was nice, the shower was good and in the cupboard under the sink there's lots of toiletries. Honestly, all you need to bring is the clothes you wanna wear, toothbrush and for the ladies your hair and make-up bits. Everything else is provided!
Location is BRILLIANT. Didn't walk far to get anywhere!! Was quite busy outside but also quite quiet during the evening, which is obviously great. We could really hear the people above us walking around and moving furniture about but it was bearable. We got brilliant nights sleep.
It really was just what we needed for a couple days away. My boyfriend is hoping to go back to Amsterdam in the not too distant future with a couple of friends and said he would definitely go back to Funky Chicken :)
