“My quiet home in Amsterdam”
Reviewed October 22, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

In the best position, this apartment is close to the heart of Amsterdam. I felt safe and comfortable staying here on my own. Warm, comfortable, stylish, ideal space. I will come back again soon with my husband and small son. Any more than 3 would be uncomfortable.

I stayed in apartment 1 (I think) anyway, the one upstairs.

The amazing:

Location, just perfect

Peaceful, so very quiet!

Hosts: Jan is a lovely fellow and so so helpful. wonderfully warm on introduction then leaves you to your own world, while welcoming you to call at any time if you need help.

Cat: if you love cats there is one next door and you may be lucky enough to see him. He will look at you suspiciously until you say 'hey puss' then he will come running over with lots of purring.

Seriously, everything you need. Make your own dinner, chill on your own lounge.

Worth taking into account:

On the same floor there is a smoker and the smell is evident in the hallway. It comes just a little into the apartment but it didn't bother me. I put a towel down at the door to stop any smell coming in.

No views so to speak and is just a few metres across from another apartment with direct views into each others' abodes. However I did realise that an open home and window is quite standard in Amsterdam. People don't worry too much if they see others through the window!

However there is a lovely light from the adjoining deck which is owned by a separate property.

“Highly recommend!”
Reviewed September 17, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Located in a quiet area in a small side street right off a canal - the apartment was a haven to come home to at the end of a busy day. Close to a grocery store, walkable to everything you want to see, and so nice inside. The washing machine was a huge plus. But by far the best thing about the Palm Apartment was the two Jans - so helpful, funny, and kind. Thank you, Jan x 2!!

I visited Amsterdam with my husband for a long weekend and stayed at Palm Apartments for 3 nights. It was easy to find from the central station as Jan had sent me a really useful app to use when I had booked.
The apartment was spotless and felt very welcoming. We felt right at home straight away. Jan had provided welcoming drinks and sat with us for 10 minutes to explain directions and useful tips.
We cooked breakfast in the apartment as it was very well equipped.
We would stay here again for sure!

“Lovely”
Reviewed January 11, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Lovely apartment in a lovely neighbourhood, and the hosts were lovely too. Jan Carel and Jan-Willem were both lovely and nothing was too much trouble. We felt really at ease in the apartment and would definitely recommend!

Where do I start, it was fab! Our entire stay was excellent, we felt very at home here, we were able to check in early and upon arrival the owner was already waiting outside for us, he took our luggage up to apartment, they are a very friendly couple. Apartment is stunning, we didn't use the kitchen however we did use espresso machine every morning, very good coffee! It was very central to everything, we walked and even biked everywhere, only 12 min walk from central station. Would defo recommend downloading their app too, very handy to find places and also get back to apartment. Thank you Jan will certainly be returning!

“Convenient and comfortable - great value”
Reviewed October 5, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed in apartment 2 on the ground floor for one week. The location is great, extremely quiet neighborhood, but still close to bus line to Central Station and a tram line to the Museum Quarter. Close to Anne Frank Huis. We cooked in the kitchen three times - basic meals but enough for us after a long day of touring and walking. Kitchen includes refrigerator, two burner stove, sink, microwave, plenty of dishes, cutlery and pot and pan set. There are two Albert Heiijn grocery stores in walking distance. Modern furniture and decor, spotlessly clean. Outstanding wi-ifi, better than most hotels. Didn't use the washing machine but appreciated having the option to use it. Beds are comfortable and new. Living room has excellent sofa and chairs. Very friendly and helpful owners; they have a lot of good local information they've stored on a free downloadable app, and they are very responsive if you have questions (and their English is excellent). They even gave us a ride to the airport on our check out day for an early flight. Great place for short or extended stay in a neighborhood that gives you a good feel for the lovely and welcoming city of Amsterdam.
