“Cosy attic studio ”

My husband and I were at Elf Studio the past 4 nights and it was an amazing stay. Our cosy attic room had literally everything we could ask for. We were particularly fans of the shower head in the bathtub - really remarkably genius Dutch engineering that not a single drop falls outside the tub when you shower! The kitchenette had all the basics one would need to heat things up or make a quick meal. There was a lot of room for us too move around and we were thankful for the space. Our only complaint would be that the mattress was a bit too soft/lumpy for our liking but honestly everything else was so great that we didn't mind it too much. We loved the steep Dutch staircase as it gave us the real feel of how locals live! The location is also fantastic - you can walk pretty much everywhere and it's in a great part of the city. Thanks Elske for your fantastic accommodation in a wonderful neighborhood!
Tip: don't miss having dinner at the Italian place on the corner of the street (diVino) - its divine!

Great! Cute room. Super neighborhood. Easy access to tram and certainly walkable for the city. If you have difficulty with stairs, ask for the ground floor room.

“We loved this”
Reviewed May 21, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Staying in this part of Amsterdam, even though it was only for a few days, really gave us a feel for living in the lovely Jordaan area. It took only minutes before we started feeling this was "our" neighbourhood, with the cafes on the next corner and the supermarket just round the corner. We felt we were in walking distance from many places we wanted to see, and it was only a short walk to the nearest tram stop. The walk to the station is a little further but we did that each day for one reason or another without any difficulty.

The top floor apartment is small and cosy but equipped with everything we needed. Overlooking two streets, we found ourselves literally in the middle of lots of activity, but were never disturbed by what was going on outside.

The only issue to which we would alert possible future guests is the steep staircase You will be warned about this, and we were, but we still had no feel for just how steep and narrow that meant. Being a mountain goat or having an abseil harness would help, and if you have heavy cases, as we did, you may face a challenge. But, as we read, that is all part of real life in Amsterdam, so enjoy it anyway.

Thanks to our hostess for a most enjoyable stay. We recommend Hotel Elf!

I love every moment that I spent in Elf studio. Good position of the house, really close to top attractions and good price. Good room, with big windows, good kitchen, and small bathroom. We had everything we need. Thanks to Elke, I hope we will come again.

Elf Studio is a lovely apartment, suited our needs completely. Close to shops, bar, restaurants and supermarket. Not far to Anne Franks house and other places of interest. The apartment is nice & warm, clean & comfy. Elske was friendly and helpful. Recommended!!

Close to the centre, within walking distance of everything you need to see on a 3 day trip. We walked everywhere, get yourself a decent map and away you go. Very handy for Winkel 43- best apple pie in town a 5 min walk away.....!
Ideal home away from home in a nice quiet residential street, which is essential after a full day of sightseeing. Cosy, warm and comfortable, the steep narrow stairs to the top floor apartment we stayed in just added to the experience.
Elske the owner, allowed us to leave our baggage in the hallway downstairs until we were ready to depart in the afternoon.

Great location. In Jordaan area with restaurants and grocery store nearby. Comfortable with kitchen available. Free laundry. Directions easy to follow from train station. Walk in 15 min. Walking distance to museums or can take tram with less than 5 minute walk. Street market close by on wednesdays. Would definitely stay there again.
