“Book early to secure this gem”
Reviewed July 26, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

All the previous rave reviews are true: Palm apartment is large, comfortable and located a short walk from everything. Jan and Jan-Willem are great hosts. Some suggestions worth considering:

1. Use the app Jan sends out. If you're like me, you think, "who needs another app?" But this one works anywhere in Amsterdam, and if you push "to hotel" and "take me there," it shows you the route back to the apartment. A great tool.
2. The apartment is so close to the main station that taxi drivers don't like to take you there. Use the app for the short walk.
3. The Vondelpark gets lots of attention but the Westerpark is closer, much bigger, less crowded and a very attractive and relaxed place for a walk, a picnic or whatever. Its just 15 minutes from the apartment and filled with locals sunning and enjoying themselves, rather than more tourists.
4. If you're looking for a food store nearby, the Jumbo is great. Beware of the Markt chain though, they don't accept cash. Seriously. You have to use a credit card. We found a few places like that in Amsterdam, so it's worth checking before you load your cart.
5. One thing about restaurants: a lot of locals are happy to spend the entire night hanging out at the restaurant. It's the evenings entertainment and they're in no hurry. As a result, you can easily find yourself sitting for 3 hours or more wondering when the next course is coming. Quite often there's only one or two servers for the whole place, and they think it's odd if you display impatience about how long you're waiting. It's not always like that, but if you walk into a really busy place and can't see more than one or two people actually working, don't expect a quick meal.

palm apartment is in a top location, easy walking distance to many attractions Amsterdam can offer. The apartment is nicely decorated, clean and well stocked with everything you may need. Jan the host is supper friendly, informative and provided us with nice recommendations. This is the perfect place to stay and enjoy the most trendy neighborhood in Amsterdam. We loved it!

“SUPERB APARTMENT AND OUTSTANDING SERVICE FROM OWNERS”
Reviewed February 19, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This was our 4th visit to Amsterdam; and our expectations of a rental apartment was far exceeded at the Palm Apartment. The owners really do want to make your stay easy, with knowledge so useful in all respects. Very clean, great location, quiet but easy for transport links to all Amsterdam. Jordaan is best area to stay in; this was the BEST apartment . Nice detail of drinks in fridge, shampoo, shower gels plenty supply towels and easily controlled heating. The photos we took proof enough. Just be aware of a few steep steps into the apartment. We will be returning here again for certain. Well done Jan and thank you.

Dear Jan
We are so happy and satisfied to meet you and staying your apartment, once again. like last year, everything was perfect, good, clean and classified. Because of the good points of your apartment, I suggest it to everybody that wants to stay in Amsterdam; with conceding of your apartment performance like as:
1- Distance from downtown (DAM Sq.); 15-20 min afoot walking and 4 min by Bus. During the day, tourists can use buses No. 18 or 21 that starts from F central station (in front of Victoria Hotel). These buses after 5 stations arrive to Willemsstraast and tourists can arrive to home after 3 min walking. Also, after 9:00 PM, they can usenight bus No. 353 from D station near to Central Railway Station.
2- Low distance from supermarkets and restaurants.
Finally, we would appreciate your accompanying on our home back (with your car) to railway station( We just paid 5 Euros from 14A platform in railway station and easily arrived to Schiphol airport.

Regards,
MAHMOOM &REZA

“A Wonderful hospitality & lovely and caring owner.”
Reviewed November 15, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Palm Apartment II from 30th. Sept. til 5th. October 2014. The location in a charming old quarter (Jordaan) and the access to the center is not far, and anyway every trip through the streets of the quarter is an experience. The apartment is in a very quiet area, well equipped, big space, pleasant and properly furnished for stay of a couple. As tourists, you must take into account the limitations of the houses in Amsterdam...It means the entrance from the street is by climbing a steep staircase, so if you are with limit movement, it would be prefered to take the apartment No. I (which has a direct entrance from the street) ; Although we liked very much the apartment No. II.
The owner Mr. Jan Carel Heim took care of all our needs, include precise direct us to return the rental car through Amsterdam channals & streets. It should be noted particularly that even though our flight left at night, Jan allowed us to stay in the apartment until the end of the day and offered us an airport shuttle by his car. This was a grand gesture that allowed us another day trip and rest.
We very grateful to Jan Carel and recommend to stay in this apartment.

“Jordaan Chic”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

From beginning to end, the landlords were helpful and responsive. The pictures on TripAdvisor were true to life. The apartment was spotless, stylish, convenient, and comfortable - with special note that the beds were very comfortable. There were even complimentary drinks in the fridge - much appreciated as we arrived in a heat wave. The property is conveniently located to restaurants, shops, and a tram/bus stop. When we asked about arranging for a taxi to the airport, they offered to take us at a discount to what a taxi would cost. We did suggest the addition of a fan to the available equipment, as the apartment was quite warm, but Mother Nature has the blame for the heat.
