  • Fabulous Apartment Stay

    "My husband and I recently visited Amsterdam and found this gem of an apartment at the very last minute. We had researched the best areas to stay in Amsterdam through various travel blogs and found Jordaan to be highly recommended. Well, we could not have agreed more. The Jordaan was quiet, but with wonderful bars, restaurants, cafes, and even coffee shops, and was close to all major attractions (i.e., museum quarter, red light district, etc.). There was even a farmer's market on the weekend with fresh produce and delicious meats and cheeses, you know, if you're in to that sort of thing ;) The kitchen in the apartment was absolutely wonderful and had everything we needed to make some delicious meals. All appliances were in perfectly working order and the washer and dryer were very convenient. My husband and I rented bikes from a rental shop a few minutes away and were able to get around perfectly. The neighborhood was extremely safe, and also very beautiful. Within a few minutes walk was a cafe, a handful of restaurants, and two supermarkets. Everything you need is nearby. As far as the comfort of the apartment, the bed, living room furniture, and heating were perfect. It is easy to spend a night in the apartment after a long day of seeing the city. We found the bathrooms, including showers and plumbing, to be nice and spacious. The apartment itself is clean, well stocked, and spacious. The renters of the apartment provided detailed notes regarding transportation, nearby entertainment/attractions, dining, and additional useful information regarding Amsterdam. The renters were very kind, helpful, and responded to us quickly as we were working to book our accommodations on such short notice. We appreciated their assistance just as much as the apartment rental itself. All in all, the location and apartment were truly perfect. We had no issues with this apartment, which was refreshing when compared to a few of our previous stays on our trip through Europe. We would absolutely stay in this apartment again and plan to do so in the future. We highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a great place to stay in a fantastic location."
