The owners are very helpful and the directions given were so easy to follow. Travelling around was so easy with a 3 day gvb card. Hardly waiting at all for transport and it was easy enough to follow. Everyone was really friendly and there is plenty to do. Highly recommend that Anne frank museum and eating at the ribs factory! Grasshopper is a lovely place to go for some drinks. It pretty much snowed the whole time we were here but that made it such a different experience and we really enjoyed it. I would recommend the water cradle to anyone. If your looking for something different this is definitely for you. Clean, well kept, nice location, comfortable bed and overall lovely. Thanks for letting us stay!

The apartment isn't too far from the centre (about 35 mins walking) but the tram service made things super easy to get around. Breakfast food was left in the fridge for us to help ourselves (although 2 of the days there wasn't any milk) and then we spent the days out wandering. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this place to stay! :)
