De Windketel is a one bedroom apartment on three floors just a 15 min tram from the Central Station. Completely furnished with kitchen, with all you need to prepare a full meal; you can move right in! Outside, it is quite unusual: a little brick tower, a converted steam valve for the pumping station across the street, located in a little square that has no car traffic. It's definitely the place to go to if you want to feel like a local. The area is Westerpark, my new favourite area in Amsterdam: across the street is a converted pumping station turned into a restaurant, next door is a natural food snack shop with wholesome sandwiches, soup and whole grain breads, then there is Westerpark itself, cool restaurants with outdoor space, a natural park and a gas reservoir turned into an events space. Next time I plan to explore this area and I may not even bother to go "downtown". Fantastic place.
