“more an independent flat than a hotel's room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

Thi is not a room but a small flat . .
it is located in the center. . you have to get an appointment to have the keys then you are free
As independent apartment there is no reception and not services at all.
The guy (manager? owner?), Arvin, was very kind and professional
The TV is in the sitting room (pros and cons)
All the furniture is new, nice fresh roses on the table
Ot summerize: Clean and central location, a lot of privacy if you desire it but No services at all . .

Wonderful location in the heart of Amsterdam, on a quiet street, close to the Red Light District and Chinatown, with beautiful common terrace on the roof. Room very nicely furnished with perfect service. Very romantic place. Thank you!

We booked this accommodation entirely by accident, out of a desire to experiment with something more than just a normal hotel. Boy were we in for a surprise!

This little apartment is literally a home away from home. The couple who run it are nothing short of amazing, and their reception was impeccable. The apartment was very tastefully decorated, and needed absolutely nothing additional on our part (other than our own food and clothing).

Although taking up luggage can be a challenge, it is absolutely normal for an old city like Amsterdam; most houses are very narrow so staircases tend to be steep and narrow. This should come as no surprise to anyone who has lived or traveled extensively in Europe.

Overall, we have vowed we would never stay anywhere else in Amsterdam given the choice.

It's unusual to find holiday accommmodation where one just wouldn't want to change anything about the room or facilities. This was an example of that though. Very comfortable, spacious, stylish. Good kitchen facilities, excellent wifi reception, very nice cafe-bar next door, easy access to all the sights and nightlife.
Very warm, efficient and helpful welcome too.
Nothing at all to criticize.

Room Tip: stairs are a bit narrow and steep, but our room was on the first floor so that wasn't a problem...

This is a really great appt. Flowers, fruit and biscuits were waiting for us on arrival and the friendly owner talked us through the best places to go according to our tastes. Although this is on the edge of the red light district you can easily avoid it if you wish and nowhere is more than around a half hour walk away. Would definitely recommend.

Very nice apartment: really comfortable, with all facilities you need (included free wifi), very modern and very clean (also with daily cleaning service, silent.
Staff so kind!!!
