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.

We loved the studio room in the loft. Edwin and Karin are lovely hosts.

  • 5 of 5

The yellow studio had everything we needed for a comfortable stay on our first visit to Amsterdam. It was super clean and well equipped. We used the local wholefood store and cooked lovely meals at home as well as eating out in nearby restaurants - which were super. Karin and Edwin were very friendly and always available but not at all intrusive.

We loved the location, it is so close to Vondelpark where we went walking and running and it is within walking distance of the Museum quarter. Most places are within walking distance but if you prefer, the trams are close by and very handy for a ride back at the end of the day.

We loved Amsterdam and we will definitely return as we didnt see all that we wanted too. We would definitely recommend a stay with Karin and Edwin - the room is lovely, location excellent and they are wonderful hosts.

Convenient location and helpful hosts

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed in one of Edwin and Karen's studio apartments. It was great to have them downstairs if we needed any assistance. They were very welcoming. The location is perfect for walking to museums, art galleries, concert halls shops and restaurants. It was great to be able to cook when we did not want to eat out. Highly recommended if you do not mind a few staircases.

Good location, great stay

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay here. The unit is in a great location with all amenities very near-by. The hosts were welcoming and have equipped the unit with everything one would need to relax, prepare a nice dinner, and get a good night's sleep.

My wife and I are glad that we booked this unit, and would recommended it to friends.

We had a pleasant & comfortable stay at Edwin & Karin’s “Yellow Studio” apartment for a week. Everything went smoothly with the rental. Edwin and Karin were welcoming & available if we had needed them. They left a note if they would be out & gave a #. The apartment itself is LOVELY. Yes, you do have to climb 3 flights of steep stairs as the description says, but they are not bad. My partner has some knee problems but she did fine. Ample railing & well-placed handles make going up and down easy. The apt feels very spacious & we loved having a table & chairs, two comfortable sitting chairs, AND the bed. The fully equipped kitchen made fixing quick supper or breakfast a snap. Several rainy evenings, we fetched some boxed soup, salami, & cheese from the Albert Heijn down the street and used the kitchen in our cozy “home” in the city. U.S. visitors might esp. like the drip coffeemaker. The bed was comfortable esp. b/c you can electronically raise both the head & the foot; if a couple, the bed is two twins together so each person can control their own side. We slept soundly. There are shelves & lights & ample outlets on each side of the bed. A single wardrobe provided plenty of storage. We did have to take turns getting our clothes as the wardrobe is close to one side of the bed, but a minor thing. There was room under the bed to stash our suitcases. The main window opens onto rooftops & a pretty flowerbox. A window above the sink & a skylight add to the brightness & spaciousness. It was often quite cool during our visit & the air through a cracked window made for pleasant sleeping. Only one night was noise a problem–a group of men were talking loudly below well into the night. But just one night and only the fault of inconsiderate people. The bathroom was clean and comfy. U.S. visitors may not like the idea of not having a separate shower stall, but it’s not a problem. You “squeegee” the floor when you’re finished & there is a curtain; you do not get the entire bathroom floor wet. We loved the aesthetic of the apartment. Cozy yet modern. The sleek kitchen, lighting strung along wires throughout, exposed beams, & arrangement of furniture made it a pleasing place to stay. The apt was also super-clean. We walked almost everywhere and the apt is in a great location–within walking distance of most major sights but NOT in the middle of them. The tram is an easy walk. In short, we LOVED our stay with Karin & Edwin & highly recommend the apartment.
