Perfect place to stay to experience the City!!!

  • 5 of 5

Lidy and her husband were excellent hosts and helped us significantly with planning and assistance with our luggage. They were very welcoming and went the extra mile to make sure we were set and happy. The upper roof was very romantic and overall this was a great place!

Quiet, comfortable, coming back soon!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for three nights in June. The space was light and airy. the bed was large and comfortable. The rooftop deck was a nice feature along with the balcony right off the living room. The bathroom was modern and well appointed with good water pressure in the shower. The kitchenette had a microwave, electric water pot, and cartridge coffee maker with the coffee cartridges along with some basic cutlery and dishes. (No stove top or burner)

The three flights of stairs were a physical fitness challenge, but wide and open. The wi-fi was intermittent, with the internet connection dropping out frequently. I blame the presence of so many other wireless networks in the area interfering with the signal. In short, we were not able to use the house wireless and had to depend on our Cell Phone wireless hot spots to get on-line.

Other reviewers mentioned the bells from the neighborhood church. Those were not a problem for us. Though we could hear them, they never woke us up during the night. They were a nice touch to the neighborhood.

Speaking of the neighborhood, we couldn't have asked for more within a short walk. A nice grocery, pub, ice cream shop and cafe. The GVB line 9 tram stop and a bus stop were close by.

On street parking was expensive, 3 euro per hour, but spots were always available for temporary parking. There was a car park about within a 10 minute walk that cost 12 euro per day.

We will stay again without hesitation because of the professional and efficient service our hosts provided.

Owner's Response: Hi Ken, Great you liked your stay so much. It is a pity that you did not tell me about the internet not working well. I could have fixed it in a minute. We have a separate internet account for the apartment, to make sure that our guests have always fast and reliable internet. We know internet is important for travellers. Great you're coming back to stay with us. We are looking forward to have you again as our guest! Lidy

This is the perfect place to stay while in Amsterdam. Close enough to the city center, 10 - 15 minutes on the 9 tram, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle. The neighborhood is so quiet and there is a supermarket and awesome bakery that's maybe a 5 minute walk from the house.

Lidy is the best host ever. From the very first inquiry to the entire stay you could easily contact her with any questions. The apartment is even better than what you see in the pics. The walk up to the 3rd floor can be a bit tough the first time, especially after a long flight and little sleep, but is totally worth it. The apartment has everything you need and is the perfect size for 2 people. The balcony and roof top terrace are great places to relax a bit before and after a long day of sightseeing. The bed is very comfortable and we easily passed out each night as soon as our heads hit the pillows.

If you're looking for a place that's close to the center without all the noise then this is your place. Do not hesitate to book this, believe me, you will not regret it.

Thank you Lidy for a wonderful stay and we hope to stay with you again next time we are lucky enough to be in Amsterdam.

Vacation Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Let me say first if you are considering this property BOOK NOW.

From our very first contact with Lidy right up to the day we left we were absolutely enchanted.

You will work very hard to kind a kinder or more welcoming host. Doing absolutely everything to ensure your stay is relaxed.

Next, the property is fantastic. Minutes from the heart of the city via the #9 you'll be in the heart of the action in no time. This by no means discounts the neighborhood you are staying in. The Family owned Bakery just a block away is fantastic.

I'll say it again, if you are considering this property, BOOK NOW. Or I promise you'll be kicking yourself.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a clean and quiet apartment with an efficiency kitchen that we enjoyed for 4 nights. The church bells took some getting use to as they ring every half hour but it was a quiet and enjoyable neighborhood...not too far away from the Dam Square action but far enough to be peaceful. You need to be able to navigate the 3 flights of steep steps but if you can do that....a very nice apartment awaits you.

Excellent stay at Linnaeussite

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a nine day visit to Amsterdam, and our stay at Linnaeussuite made served as a perfect location in this amazing city. Lady Knol is a most friendly, knowledgeable and efficient host, and she warmly welcomed us at the end of our long plane journey. The apartment is super clean, modernly furnished and very spacious for one to two week stay. The offers a good-sized living room with a entertainment system, and a large bedroom featuring a most comfortable king-sized bed and comfy seating area. These rooms both have large windows that let in lots of warmth and heat, yet since you are on the top floor, you will always feel a secure sense of privacy. The kitchen space is well equipped, allowing us to start the day with a quick breakfast snack. Lidy very generously offered us the use of the fully-equipped kitchen on the second floor if we had wished to do any cooking during our stay. Our bathroom was the piece-de-resistance. It is large, super-clean and features the most modern bathroom fixtures.

As we were visiting in April, it was a little too cool to take advantage of the balcony and rooftop terrace, but we could just imagine sitting up there a quiet evening in the summer and watching the neighbourhood below us. And what a great neighbourhood it is. Linnaeussuite is situated on a quiet and beautiful crescent, but it just short walk over to Middenweg, the area's main street. It is here that you can find a great variety of services and shops to make your stay more enjoyable. We enjoyed several of the nearby restaurants, and the grocery stores and speciality food shops made shopping a pleasure. Strolling along Middenweg in the evening with families made us feel that we were part of the neighbourhood. The trams and busses into Amsterdam run by frequently making touring throughout the city so easy, inexpensive, and safe. We also enjoyed strolling through beautiful Park Frankendael, a beautiful and green oasis just off Middenweg.

We are so happy that we chose Linnaeussuite to stay during our visit to Amsterdam. We highly recommend it to travellers who wish to book a clean, modern apartment that is close enough to Amsterdam's attractions, yet situated in its own very cool and well-equipped neighbourhood. We hope to return one day soon.

Linnaeussuite is located on the edge of the city center. All the Amsterdam highlights you want to see and do are nearby. Just 10 minutes by public transport or bike. The apartment is located on a quiet courtyard. We call it best of both worlds: the city within reach while staying in an authentic peaceful neighborhood.
