Everything was perfect!!

5 of 5
This apartment was perfect. Exactly as the photos showed. Very cool inside even though it was boiling outside. Bed very comfortable. Amazing shower room. Every thing in the kitchen that we needed. Sofa also very comfortable. Loved the floors. The breeze coming through the patio doors from the balcony kept the whole apartment cool. Betty, she met us with the keys was very polite and extremely friendly. As we weren’t flying home until Late in the evening, Betty said we could stay in the apartment until 4.30 pm as this was the time we needed to leave for the airport. No one else was staying after us. She arranged to clean in the evening so it didn’t spoil our stay. So very kind and considerate of her, an amazing lady. The location was perfect with less than a 2 minute walk to many many lovely restaurants and bars. Perfect for people watching. We already know that we will return in the spring, definitely to this apartment. It really was home from home. The only downside was the very steep stairs up the the apartment, which I already knew about, but this is common place in Amsterdam houses, plus the fact I am not a spring chicken, but hey you only need to get your luggage up there once. After that, it’s a breeze. Thank you again Betty, see you in the spring 😊
