                                                            Great apartment and great location

                                                            Well I've just touched down from a great 3 nights in Amsterdam. We opted for an apartment as we were going with another couple and this apartment ticked all the boxes. Yeah the stairs were a bit steep but what do you expect in a typical Dutch building! The apartment was clean and the location is fantastic! A friendly handover both on arrival and leaving so on behalf on everyone on the trip thank you!

                                                            Loved the apartment, very clean and comfortable. Mary very welcoming and we were able to access the apartment early, thanks. Some basics left for us to use, ie salt, pepper, coffee, oil, vinegar, thanks Mary and Dirk. Kitchen equipment spotless and good. We were able to knock up a meal with no hassle, and dishwasher to clean it all up with afterwards! Supermarket nearby with lots of choice of good food, wine, beer. Great bakery around the corner. Stairs steep if you have an issue with steps, but good for burning off the calories from all the delicious cakes! Great location, Jordaan is a lovely residential area with lots of cafes, restaurants etc, but also reasonable walking distance to main city centre. Tram stops nearby. Lots of restaurants, bars etc in the main city centre, but they are all full of tourists, stay in the local area, the restaurants are better, the locals live and eat there as well as tourists. If you stay here, explore all the back streets in the area behind bloemgracht canal and all the side streets off Prinsengracht canal (called 9 streets)

                                                            Ein super Wochenende in Amsterdam

                                                            4 of 5
                                                            Eine super Vermieterin,ich habe schon viele Ferienunterkünfte gemietet,aber noch eine so coole Vermieterin erlebt. Zur Begrüßung gab es erstmal eine Flasche Wein. Wir konnten uns an den Haus eigenen Getränken bedienen (inkl.). Das Boot ist sehr geräumig,wir waren mit 7 Personen dort. Das Boot liegt super zentral,so dass man problemlos alles erreichen kann. Die Gracht in der es liegt ist super schön. Ich kann das Boot nur weiterempfehlen. Danke Marja
