Our vacation started out great with Charlotte meeting us at apartment and going over everything. Location was fabulous although some evenings the noise carried on until 2-3am in the morning due to the proximity to an abundance of nightlife.
The apartment was very clean and although the layout was quirky, it worked out for my son and I to have our rooms on separate floors. The smaller bedroom with full bath is on the 3rd floor of the building which requires walking up 30 steps.
The next level is the living room and kitchen which is another floor up 14 additional steps. No bathroom on this floor which is strange but maybe normal in an old building. The master bedroom and bath is on the top floor which is up another 14 steep steps. This room is very spacious and the shower was very nice.
I thought the bed in master room was not so comfortable, pillows prob 10 years old and sheets a bit scratchy. At the minimum the landlord should consider getting new pillows and sheets.
This is a very nice rental and great if you want to be close to the action of the Red Light District. The unit is above a lovely cheese shop and on the corner of a busy intersection overlooking a canal. Might not be great for families with small children because of separation of bedrooms and steep stairs. The same for people with mobility issues.
The flat was great, well furnished, with lots of space and elegant design.0
It's in a very busy street in the heart of red district !
No cars, but can be quite noisy as lots of people go partying here ! Lots of steep stairs as well - as in many Amsterdam flats of course.
We had a very nice welcome from Charlotte and enjoyed our stay very much.
