Bright,stylish,spacious apartment. Very well equipped with everything we needed.

5 of 5
We were welcomed to the property by Stephen who showed us round and gave us all the information we needed about the accommodation. He also had a lot of books leaflets and timetables available about the area. We were pleased to be given an initial small supply of groceries including bread and eggs. The apartment was very bright,spacious and comfortable with everything we needed including two bicycles which we used every day to get around. We enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend it as a good base to explore Amsterdam.
