“Captains house in Amsterdam”
Reviewed June 22, 2016

person found this review helpful

If you are looking for a nice apartment to rent in Amsterdam try this lovely centuries old home in a great central location, just minutes from the Central Station. The apartment offers a comfortable stay in a nice neighborhood with all the amenities nearby. The owner, Arjen, welcomed us with a thorough tour of the apartment and after that, a walking tour of the neighborhood. He pointed out the best bakery, best cheese shop, and the best restaurants nearby. He gave us good information tailored to what we wanted with our visit. The extras provided such as fresh tulips in the apartment were a bonus. Contact Arjen van Klinken at arjenvanklinken@gmail.com for details. We enjoyed our stay and would return to this apartment again. Nancy, Janet, Michelle, and Mary

“Superb flat with a great host”
Reviewed June 4, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

person found this review helpful

We spent four nights in Amsterdam and just loved our stay in Captain´s house.
It´s situated within walking distance from the main station and very close to a lot of places in Amsterdam.
Our host Arjen was extremly welcoming and took the trouble to give us a great tour of the neighborhood, showing us shops and nice cafes, giving very good recommendations.
The flat itself is very spacy and nicely furnished. There are drinks in the fridge when you arrive and the little things you need in the kitchen like salt pepper, a few spices etc. are all there, so one can really use the kitchen without having to get everything.
We really felt spoilt and enjoyed our stay thoroughly.
Thank you Arjen.

“Central, Old & Beautiful apartment. With a great host.”

Arjen is a great host. Gave us a mini tour of about 40 mins helping us get to know the place better. The house is a 8 min walk from the Central station. Red light district is 5 mins. There were no problems at all while we were there and Arjen was available on Whatsapp if there was anything. The house has a great top floor which we used as a chill area Plus the Kitchen, with a window on both ends.

We stayed for two nights on a cold February weekend. Arjen met us at the apartment - he had offered to meet us at the station but his directions were so clear we found it easily. He showed us around and then gave us an interesting tour of the surrounding area with snippets of history. All very useful and informative as we were starving and the wonderful Dutch restaurant he recommended served great eggs and cheese. Thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Everything we needed in the kitchen, lashings of hot water and very comfortable beds-and for somewhere so central it was very quiet. Hope to be back.

My family and I had a great stay in Amsterdam and would thoroughly recommend Captain's House. The location was perfect, a nice community feel to the area rather than being too busy but still really close to everything - it was great. The apartment was really tidy and Arjen was brilliant- from his friendly helpful nature and short guided tour to the beer and refreshments waiting for us in the fridge. He even let my two kids use his football in the local park! Also the beds were great, we all slept really well.

we will be back. Thanks Arjen.

We stayed with Arie for several days. He met us at the station, helped us with our bags, showed us where to eat and shop, and joined us for one dinner and several drinks, all at our suggestion --- he did not intrude!. The house is charming (although we stayed downstairs, which is no longer rented), historic, tastefully modernized and very comfortable. The neighborhood is great: close to the center but quiet and historic.
One possible issue: There are a lot of steps up to the apartment..
I give this place my highest recommendation!

Thank you for your review.

Just to clarify about the stairs, all historic houses (and quite few newer ones as well) in Amsterdam will have steep stairs. This one is actually a new one, the originals are quite a bit steeper and narrower. Since they were just for walking and goods would be hauled in with a pully.

Stair fences for kids are available for safety, hundreds of kids have grown up on these floors, in this house ;)
