Great place to spend a 50th birthday celebration.

  • 5 of 5

Staying in the Jordaan was perfect for us. Frances, the owner, is a great host who lives life to the full. Always smiling and interested in what you have to say, Frances will offer tips to get the most from your stay in this area of the city. Her restaurant / bar recommendations were "spot on" and we really enjoyed the use of the bikes. I can say now that we are already looking for return flights. See you soon Frances!

Inviting room

  • 4 of 5

The room was great for the price. It was rather small, but that's okay because you should be spending the days exploring. Everything was very clean upon arrival. One thing to make note of though, is that although it is no smoking, you can still smell the smoke from the owners apartment. Although it is not unbearable, if you are sensitive to it, I would take it into consideration. Although I am somewhat sensitive to it, it did air out some during our stay and we were not in the room enough for it to affect my enjoyment of this property. I would stay here again and recommend to friends. The area is unbeatable and the bikes are GREAT!!!!!! We rode them everywhere and everyday.

Owner's Response: hello! thanks so much for your review - re. the smoke in the front part of the house : so sorry about this! I'm not smoking myself, so in principle no smoke.. I had a friend staying with me who does smoke a lot. The only thing I can say this was just a coincidence. I have tried to keep the 2(!)door in between my house and the front closed. Anyway I'm happy you enjoyed your stay and the bikes! all the best for you both, frances

A wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend staying in Amsterdam at Frances apartment.

The Jordaan area is beautiful and perfectly located to everything. We walked everywhere and explored as much of the city as we possibly could.

Frances is warm and welcoming and provides much information about things to do and places to visit. Good tips on places to eat - we enjoyed both Vlaming and Winkel.

The nearby Saturday market was just fabulous.

The apartment is comfortable and well equipped. Sharing the toilet is no problem at all.

Our only regret is we did not stay for long enough - so we will just have to plan to return sometime - and we would not consider staying anywhere else other than with Frances.

Best location and wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

If you want the best location for a stay in Amsterdam, this is it. The apartment is in the Jordan, the heart of the old city but just outside the crowed shopping and hotel area. There are many lovely restaurants and shops around every corner and we especially enjoyed market day here where the stalls, over flowing with farmers produce and goods of every kind, seemed endless. There is no need for public transport as the apartment is walking distance to everything!

The bedroom is small but Frances has loaded it with everything one could need, the bathroom facilities are good and all was spotlessly clean. Frances was a wonderful host, providing advice and direction, and even arranged for a friend to take us to the airport.

Value for the price, this little apartment cannot be beat.

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in January and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Frances was lovely, very generous with recommendations. The room was very comfortable and was a very welcome sight after lots of walking. It was warm, clean and very comfortable.

The location was excellent. It is in a quiet area, but has plenty of amenities close by. You must try Piqniq for breakfast and Vlaming has excellent food at a good price. There are a couple of supermarkets around the corner and you are within walking distance of Amsterdam centre, we didn't set foot on public transport at all in the week of our stay.

We would recommend this place for its situation and for the wonderful welcome we had, also free wifi which was great. We will certainly come back and stay again. Thank you so much Frances for a great stay.
