“De Windketel :a Natural Oasis in Amsterdam”
Reviewed September 14, 2011

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.

What a 'Gem' of a place, we were originally looking to stay on a houseboat in Amsterdam but couldn't get booked. We then stumbled upon this place and are so glad we did. It is a fantastic compact but comfortable and out of the ordinary apartment. Not too far from the centre of Amsterdam, we cycled it most of the time but did easily walk it one night, local supermarkets, Trams and Buses also within walking distance. The inside was surprisingly spacious and the decor was very modern, we felt very special staying there. The Owner was extremely helpful and accomodating on our arrival, but we were then left in peace, (we were told any problems just to contact her), but thankfully all went well, we even managed to google English instructions for the Combi Microwave! It was great that there was an abundance of freshly laundered towels, candles, WiFi and above all a very comfortable bed. We couldn't have asked for more, although my husband did say cheekily, 'fluffy dressing gowns'. It was a perfect place for a relaxing/romantic break.
