My traveling companion and I loved our apartment in Amsterdam. It was very well located, near both the Vondelpark and the Leidseplein. Karin was very welcoming and helpful. There are three very steep flights of stairs, but for such a sweet apartment, it was worth the climb.

Perfect Studio Apartment in the Heart of Amsterdam

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at this Studio Apartment whilst I was in Amsterdam. The location of the apartment is fairly close to major tourist attractions such as the Rijkmuseum, FoodHallen, and Vondelpark. They are all within walking distance of the apartment.

The apartment itself was very cozy. It is clean, quiet from the hustle and bustle of the city and the bed was comfortable. A perfect place to retreat after a busy and exciting day around the city.

Edwin and Karin are lovely people and fantastic hosts. When I arrived, they gave me a map of the city and a brochure with all the tourist attractions of the city. On the day that I departed, they even got me a taxi to the airport!

If you are planning a trip to Amsterdam, don't pass up this wonderful apartment. You will not be disappointed.

Wonderful flat!

We were in town for a wedding and this apartment had everything we needed. Location was perfect for catching a tram or walking. Our hosts were very helpful and even booked a taxi for us the day of our departure. The stairs were very steep but we knew this beforehand.

Perfect apartment located in a perfect place for our stay

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a perfect place to explore Amsterdam. The transport links from the airport are easy and convenient, and all options are clearly described by the owners Karin and Edwin.

We found the apartment to be clean and well appointed with everything you need for your stay. The beds are very comfortable and you can adjust the head and foot ends, which is a treat after lots of walking!

Karin and Edwin make you feel very welcome and are on hand should you need any advice. They are very easy to contact prior to your stay and they answered all our questions.

Previous reviews have mentioned the stairs at the property. The apartment is at the top (3rd floor) of a typical tall and narrow building you would find in Amsterdam, this means the stairs are steeply raked and might be difficult for some people. We had no issues with this as we are both in good health and mobile.

The apartment is located in a quiet side street and about a 5 minute walk from some great bars with live music. We highly recommend the location as you can get to everything you need or want to in Central Amsterdam.

Would highly recommend.
