About the property

I live on the 3rd floor myself and I will make your stay in Amsterdam the most special stay ever.

Stay in a 130 year old authentically restored building, with those beautiful Amsterdam window frame (and stained glass).

The 'AMSTERDAM ROOM' on the 1st floor is 13 m2 and offers two very comfortable high box-spring beds. These beds were elected Best Buy of 2015! The mattresses have a memory foam and we are overloaded with compliments for those beds :-) A third, full size extra bed (200x90cm) is possible in this room, but it will be crowded. Read a 2016 blog about the room (German / Deutsch) here: https: // jonastropartz. wordpress. com

The 'FIREPLACE ROOM' on the 2nd floor is 26 m2 and offers four of those great and comfortable box spring beds.

Regular check-in is at 14:00 hours. You may however check in earlier and leave your bags in our apartment. You may also check in later. To make sure you can enter the apartment, make sure we know what time you will arrive! And please give us a call if your arrival time differs with more than 30 minutes.

Regular check-out is at 11:00 hours. You may smoke your bags in the house and spend another day in Amsterdam. You then keep your keys and pick up your bags later that day (free of charge).

In both rooms you will find a flat screen HD TV, towels, guest towels, wash cloths, bathrobes, a hairdryer, a chair and a stool. There are facilities to hang your coat and store your bags.


You will receive the keys to your room and the keys to the front door. A brand new guest bathroom is ready for you. It has a waterfall and a cute, natural stone sink. It has a mirror and some hooks to hang your stuff while using the bathroom. If Both rooms are occupied the people in the other room also use these facilities. The bathroom and separate toilet are cleaned every single day.

Our large and fully equipped kitchen is also always at your disposal. You can make your own breakfast, lunch or dinner here if you would like that. Get your fresh food just around the corner at the daily open air market, and cook your dinner at home! You may use our oil, salt etcetera when preparing your own food.


We'll gladly walk you from the tram to the first time, should you have need for that. Just give him me call when you get close!

You will get a tour in the building when you arrive. Someone will be there to show you around. Jeroen will be in the apartment most of the time, as he lives there too. He has his own quarters, bedroom and facilities. However; Jeroen will help you out, rather than be in your way :-)

You may also meet some guests from the other room that we sometimes run out, which is, as we know from experience, always a joy!


The Vondelpark, the Rembrandt park and the Erasmus park are all within walking distance of the Amsterdam City Center. You'll find canals, cafes, public transportation and restaurants within a 3 minute walk. You'll find the world famous Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum, the Anne Frank House, The Van Gogh Museum, The Rijksmuseum, the Jordan Cruise Port and all within 5-10 tram minutes. Famous areas such as Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein are very close.

In Old-West, the Kinkerbuurt has undergone or a major upgrade in 2014, then again in 2018 Many streets and houses in this area have undergone urban renewal, making this hip and happening. You will find our location a very comfortable starting point for any trip you may decide to plan. Five major tram lines are conveniently located within a few minutes walk and we'll gladly show you how to travel.

If you bring your little ones: there is a park at a two minute walk, it also has a petting zoo! You can also visit for a picnic there is also a great idea.

What an amazing place! I can’t recommend this BnB more highly! Amsterdam is my favorite city in the world and this stay only made me love it more! The beds were sooo comfortable, the fresh bread and coffee were avalaible every morning when you got up, the WiFi was incredibly fast, and our host had excellent recomendations! Do not hesitate to book this place! :)

Quaint and cozy flat situated in a safe and convenient neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The room was exactly as described. A four bed room with a fireplace and shared use of a toilet and shower room as well as use of a shared kitchen. Very comfortable place to stay that is in a well situated neighborhood close to tram, shopping and restaurants. The home is beautiful and the one site host Jeroen is a wealth of information and was very helpful to us during our stay.

Great space and host!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The fireplace room was the perfect space for our family of four (kids are 6 and 1). Breakfast was delicious! Jeroen was a fantastic host! Full of information and always helpful, but never in the way. We loved the shared spaces. The kitchen is both beautiful and useful. And really comes in handy when traveling with children. Thanks for helping to make our visit to Amsterdam so great!

Not for older adults/families: unclean hostel/boarding house atmosphere

  • 1 of 5

As a family, we rented this in hopes it would suit our needs, as we've had years of positive experiences on VRBO, however, we were quite disappointed. To get to the space, there are 2 very steep staircases that lead to a tight room sofa was less than clean room with a soiled sofa. The only way to get to the shared bathroom was by descending very steep stairs to a dirty, very tight bathroom space (smaller than a closet) The adjoining very small shower room did not drain and left virtually no space to dress. We left after 1 of 3 booked nights and went to a hotel for less money and much better accommodations. We did not receive a refund nor a note from the host. I would not recommend this home.

Owner's Response: Hi, I'm rather surprised by your reaction, as would the other people whom stayed before you be! As you can see the scores are rather high and for a good reason. You never mentioned any of this to me, this to me or we could have fixed that! All classic buildings in Amsterdam have steep staircases. I do not use the shower myself as I have my own facilities, so if it doesn't drain right: you should tell me! Also: tight room? it's 26 square meters (270 square feet) and the kitchen is around 15 square meters (150 square feet)... I'm disappointed you rate it at one star without talking to me first, I also did not know you left early, I thought you were early or late risers... You are the first guest ever to rate me with one star since we opened 3.5 years ago :-( Greetings, -Jeroen
