We stayed in the Van Gogh apartment, which was tastefully furnished and had access to a beautiful and charming outdoor garden with a sitting area perfect for lunches. The caretaker Milany was extremely accommodating and available in case we had any questions - but she had explained everything so well when we first arrived that we hardly needed to bother her. We were within walking distance to every activity or site we set out to visit - from museums to shopping areas - which made the location (right on the canal!) just perfect.
The apartment came with two large flat screen tvs, a kitchen area with stove, microwave oven, crockery, utensils, coffee maker, kettle (with tea and coffee pods) and even a washer/dryer, all complete with detergents to use for each. A delightful sitting area with huge bay windows made waking up here a pleasure, even when the weather wasn't at its best.
The bedroom is indeed small, but while on vacation, we didn't spend much time hanging out in there in any case with the rest of the apartment at our disposal.
The bathroom was spotless with modern fixtures.
The apartment also comes with free wifi, which is wonderful to have when taking an extended vacation (11 days). Each apartment gets their own wifi, and it is indeed high speed and consistently so.
We had no issues with bookings or payment (booked through booking.com), and would only say that the hand basins in the bathrooms were rather small, and that the television does come provided with a DVD player, but not HDMI output .
Besides the apartment itself, a full score must be given to Milany the caretaker, as her helpful and friendly attitude made us feel immediately at home in a city we had never been in before.
I will definitely be coming back to this place, and would recommend it highly to anyone who's tired of feeling like a tourist and would rather a unique change.
