“Excellent Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2007

5 of us travelled to Amsterdam mid June 2007.

Prior to leaving England we tried to book accomodation, but found it very pricy, especially over the weekend. There were also a lot of places that wanted a minimum of 3 nights. We therefore decided to look at hostels and appartments on line and came across 'Cribs', they offered a number of appartments. We decided to book their 5 person appartment situated in the center of the Red Light District.

This accomodation would easily suit a group of travelling friends, it is very reasonably priced and the location is excellent. It would not however suit travelling couples (sleeping arrangements would not suit - see below). It is also very secure with a main front door and then another door to the appartment.

Our lodgings were situated on Oudezijds Voorburgwal, which is directly opposite Oude Kirk (Old Church). We were on the 3rd floor, the stairs to the appartment were very narrow and steep. The appartment is clean and compact. Once inside there is a large living room, with cabel TV, that overlooks the church. The kitchen area is ajoining the living room and has cupboards, sink, cooker and washing machine !. The bathroom is seperate and has both a shower and a bath.

There is one bedroom that has bunkbeds and a double, the other remaining bed is situated between the living room and kitchen.

I would certainly recommend this appartment to anyone who is used to staying in hostels and low/medium priced hotels, however those that are used to 5* hotels need not apply !!.

Well done everyone connected with Cribs.

Ps on a final note, I left my wallet behind and have since been contacted via mail, telling me that it will be posted back over the next few days - thanks guys !.
