“Highly Recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

The rooms were immaculate, everything was new and in great condition. The location can't be better for being in Amsterdam. For a european apartment, the space was quite big. The staircase could be a challenge for some older/less mobile people but we had no problems with it, in fact a lot of the smaller building in Amsterdam had similar staircases. Grocery store close by, so the functional kitchen is great to have. Can't say enough about the friendly people there, Arvin, Hans and Bong were incredibly friendly and helpful! Highly Recommended!!!

This is an immaculate, small apartment operation in heart of Amsterdam. 3 or 4 rooms only accessed by very steep stairs ( not suitable for children or those with less mobility). Very nice room, I had a quiet spot on top floor (with a small patio except that it was mid winter) ... delightfully decorated, fresh flowers, fruit & speciality teas, coffees biscuits etc. The management team were most welcoming and helpful. Great location 100m from Metro. Definitely recommended for an Amsterdam stopover.

I am not sure I should be reviewing these apartments as it might make it more difficult to book in the future!
These apartments are in the Nieuwmark district. They have recently been renovated to a very high standard.It has a small kitchen area with everything you would need if you wanted to cook, including a microwave and nespresso machine. It even had a dishwasher. There is a table and chairs and a sofa. The tv has many channels, including BBC.
The bedroom is at the back and once there, you can't hear the street noise. The bathroom has a bath and shower over it. Toiletries are included- right down to toothbrushes and toothpaste. A hairdryer is included.
A big bonus is that the apartments have wifi.
The owners have gone out of their way to be welcoming. We arrived early and they were happy to keep our bags till the apartment was ready. We wanted to find our way to a sports hall where OH had to collect his things for the marathon on Sunday. Arvin didn't know how to get there but went off to find out for us.
When we did arrive back to our apartment we found a vase of perfect roses and a big bowl of fruit. Also provided was a nespresso capsule selection box and a similar one for tea, which must have had every possibility under the sun:). There was also a tin of waffles.
The apartment was absolutely spotless. The location is ideal as its two minutes to Chinatown and 10 mins walk to the Dam area. Almost all of the siteseeing is walkable to. We had a 3 day metro ticket, which was at a discounted price, but didn't use it as often as we thought we would.
The apartment website is http://www.artisthouseapartmentsamsterdam.com/en/the-apartments
The photos show exactly what it looks like.
Will we return- yes, that is if they are not fully booked already.
Thanks for a great stay, Arvin!
