So here are the unvarnished pros and cons about this place:
1. The Location. The apartment is located in the trendy Jordaan area of Amsterdam. This is a wonderful place to stay, 2 minutes from Anne Franks house, a 10 minute cycle to the park, a 5 minute stroll to Dam Square and all the shopping your little feet can handle! It is located down a quiet residental street so you really feel like you are one of the natives for a weekend! The Jordaan area also has many wonderful quaint shops and boutiques and cafes.
2. The Apartment. There is no lobby, no loud bars, no people shouting on the corridors. Instead we were emailed a pin code to get into the building and into our room (2F) and other than that we had none of the typical buzz of a generic hotel. It was bliss. House-keeping service the room each day. The enitre place was spotless. The room was large with beautiful wood beams on the ceiling and wall to wall windows with a small balcony out onto the street. It was a lovely temperature with a hot shower in a very trendy bathroom.
1. The Room: Having stayed in 5 star before (here in Ireland and abroad) we were left disappointed. The hotel website is wonderful but the rooms are really not all that. We had no bath tub - disappointing for 5 star, and the bed, although king size, was actually two large single beds pushed together - again quiet disapponiting!
2. The Price: We paid 200euro per night for this room. Granted we stayed there over New Year's Eve but even so it was definintely not worth this amount. If you can get this place for less....go for it....but don't splash out thinking that you are staying in the lap of luxury as you are not!
Note: If you have an mobility issues the really steep stairs may be a problem. They didn't bother us one bit but they may be something to consider.
