Recent Netherlands reviews

  • Good Location! Very Spacious!

    "We stayed here for 3 nights during part of our honeymoon. Erik was waiting for us in the cafe downstairs when we arrived. He took us straight up and showed us everything. It is just as described... very spacious, big bathroom, terrace, etc. The building tilts forward a bit (good ol' Amsterdam architecture) which is not too big of a problem. The stairs are very very steep - would not suggest this apartment for people with mobility problems. Also, the cafe downstairs is very noisy and seems to be extremely popular. It didn't affect our sleep too much, but would be an issue for light-sleepers... some nights it can stay open as late as 3:00 AM. So, just be aware of that. I would suggest to Erik that he provide at least some hand soap in the bathroom, as there was none. We brought our own shampoo and conditioner and other toiletries, but not hand soap. Also, there was an issue with the lights - half of them did not work. This wasn't much of an issue for us, but might be for some people as it was very dim at night. The fireplace is great, but sort of tricky to light. Location is fabulous. This was my third time visiting Amsterdam and I was very happy with the location. There were a few grocery stores within walking distance, which was wonderful. You are literally in the thick of it it all. There is no laundry in the unit, but there is one in about 10 minutes walking distance called Powders on Kerkstraat. 13 eu gets you one load, washed, dried, and folded while you are out and about. Or you can do self service for 5,50 eu washing + 50 cents per 10 minutes drying, FYI. Loved it. Would definitely book again."
