My wife and I stayed here in the Amber apartment for a long weekend in October. It was a wonderful stay. The apartment was, as others have said, well located, close to Dam Square and most of the attractions and shops (a few supermarkets within a few hundred meters). Just across the Single Canal and you are in the “Nine Streets” with many art, craft and vintage shops and many superb restaurants. A little further on (four canals) you have the Jordaan area (more of the same).
The apartment was spotless, had everything needed, a small but very well equipped kitchen (used for breakfasts and a few drinks in the evening), excellent bathroom (wet room), very comfortable lounge area and extremely large and comfortable bed. The room was cleaned, with bedclothes, towels etc refreshed after two days which was pleasantly unexpected.
The view overlooking the Single canal was incredible - the whole front wall was windows – great for watching the world go by and people watching.
The stairs are typical of Amsterdam canal houses – narrow and steep (this is clearly stated in the web-site) – but are manageable just need getting used to.
The staff was very relaxed and extremely helpful.
Will stay here the next time we visit Amsterdam if possible.
