“COMFORT IN A GREAT LOCATION”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights in April...The apartment is very comfy. and clean . The small kitchen is very functional and the fridge was VERY well stocked....( eggs, bacon, milk, cheese, bread ,butter and more )..The bed is extremely comfortable...As almost everyone else has said , the stairs up to the room are quite steep and narrow but really worth the effort .( heavy cases not recommended ) The apartment is flooded with sunshine in the morning and really quiet at night...As for the location...PERFECT...Close to the market, museums , and lots of restos and cafes nearby. ( very good coffee )...There are 2 supermarkets around the corner. The host was on hand to check us in and even printed our airline tickets on check out...Thanks for a great stay in a beautiful city. .Hope to stay here again...

This apartment is a little gem. You DO need to be fit (not necessarily young) to get up and down the narrow and steep stairwell. Be realistic; if you’re 80+lbs over and have bad knees, this is NOT the place for you. That said, this charming attic apartment is in a great spot--not too far from anything. There are lots of good restaurants nearby and the wonderful Albert Culp market. Wienik, the owner, is right on! The fridge was well stocked---good quality products. We stayed a week and hope to return.
Thanks for a great stay!

My husband booked this place for 4 days stay in May 2013. One of his colleagues recommended this place and it was really a perfect choice. Whenever I recall the time we spent here, I am completely lost in the beautiful memories. Staff members were very accommodating; they never behaved liked strangers and were very friendly. Every request was properly heard and considered. Rooms were very beautifully decorated and very clean. Bed was comfortable and washroom was luxurious. Food was mind blowing. We had a great time together in this gorgeous property. I will definitely recommend this place to my other friends.

Great apartment, has everything you could need for a comfortable stay. Spotlessly clean, stocked fridge on arrival. Fantastic location is in a residential area so has the advantage of great eating places away from the sometimes tacky (but great fun) tourist areas. Within walking/cycling distance of all attractions but good transport links if your not feeling so active. Would not hesitate to return!!

This little apartment is a perfect place to stay in Amsterdam! The owner was very nice, carried our bags up the small staircase and even suggested some great places to eat that were close by. Keep in mind that this apartment is located on the top floor of a forth floor walk up. The staircase is EXTREMELY tight and steep, so this place might not be suitable for older and younger people. Other than that, the apartment was clean, cozy, and in a Great location. I would definitely stay here again.

Wife and I loved this place. Located in a neighbourhood minutes from everywhere you want to be, this apartment has the best of both worlds. It's in a true neighbourhood so you are where people live and can get away from the rest of the tourists (which we needed), yet you're never far away from things!
