“Amazing location, amazing hosts, felt like a home away from home”
Reviewed March 27, 2018 for a stay in May 2016

This is a long overdue review from our stay in May 2015 (So late that I can't even select 2015 in the drop down!). We had the opportunity to stay in Marit and Victor's Guestroom on our short stay in Amsterdam. The location is perfect if you like to experience the life of locals. It's walking distance to the tram, to the supermarket, ATM, flea shop, while still having a nice residential feel. During our stay, my 1 year old daughter fell ill with a high fever. Marit was so nice, she took us to her family doctor as if we were family. It was so nice of Marit and it's hard to find such great hosts in this day and age. The garden in the back is pretty and relaxing. Our girls who were 1 and 4 had fun in the garden, as well as riding in the tram and gondolas. Highly recommended for families with young kids as the kitchen is a proper kitchen.

Located in a beautiful and quiet neighbourhood but with great bars, restaurants, shops in walking distance and just a short tram trip to central Amsterdam. Apartment had everything we needed for our stay.

“Lovely weekend in cosy apartment!”
Reviewed January 31, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Can highly recommend the apartment. It was very comfortable and clean with a nice little garden area.
The nearby neighbourhood was very nice and a short tram ride into the centre. Marit and Victor gave us all the info we needed for a great stay in Amsterdam. Would most definitely choose to stay here again.

“TRANQUIL HAVEN IN AMSTERDAM”
Reviewed January 21, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Booked at the Guestroom through TripAdvisor on account of excellent reviews and stayed 4 nights. Warm, welcoming and beautifully decorated studio apartment on the lower ground level of Marit and Victor's beautiful period Amsterdam house. Complimentary bottle of Italian wine, fresh bottle of milk in the fridge, bowl of fresh fruit and a beautiful bunch of fresh colourful tulips welcomed us in the cosy apartment courtesy of the central heating as we were there in January.

Friendly and gentle, Marit and Victor are hospitable hosts and it is apparent in every small detail that they wish their guests' stay at the Guestroom to be a memorable one. Love and perfect taste defines this apartment and it is spacious enough that one will feel comfortable even for a long stay. Spotlessly clean, comfortable totally self-contained studio apartment that include microwave oven, kettle, fridge, stove, dishwasher and all the necessary cutlery and crockery to be properly self-catering - and bonus is the Nespresso coffee machine with complimentary pods, mini hi-fi system with Bluetooth, TV and computer with printer and fast Wi-Fi). Direct access to a veranda (with table and chairs) and the wonderful garden, with "Snoetjes", the neighbour's endearing cat visiting every morning. Very quiet, comfortable bedroom, bed and bedding, all promising the gentle undisturbed sleep as mentioned in the Guestroom's "house prayer". Modern, spotlessly clean and well-appointed bathroom with shower and hand-shower - even basic and special toiletries tucked behind the vanity mirror!

In a very quiet and peaceful location but perfect to explore Amsterdam central and the surrounds by the excellent public transport services (we found the tram the most convenient) and even on foot (recommended if the weather is good). Convenient proximity to various supermarkets, shops and restaurants. The hosts compiled a very informative information booklet containing a beautiful hand-drawn annotated map and a wealth of information in relation to all that one needs to know to make a stay even more pleasurable.

A genuine home from home indeed, a great place to stay and highly recommended.

(TIP - highly recommend the use of Marc's taxi service (as suggested by the hosts on their website) for transfer to and from the airport and any other transfers - reasonable rate and excellent, punctual and professional service that saves one the effort of logging suitcase around on public transport, especially if the weather is inclement …)
