Wonderful apartment with a great view

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Amsterdam and we loved this apartment. It's perfectly located to walk to almost anything, and we loved sitting by the window watching the canal and the cyclists. Marcel was friendly and helpful about what to do in the area. The apt. was clean and the living area was spacious. Perfect for two. We'd stay here again.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The Apartment is on the 2nd floor with great views over the canal. Only a short walk to the centre of the city. Great eateries nearby - we loved the Argentinian Steak House.

The living area was fantastic with good central heating. Bedroom was a little small for us, but adequate - hard to get to the cupboards. The apartment does need some minor maintenance: repair hotplate; ensure all lights work properly; Kitchen cutlery and crockery (no desert bowls) could do with refurbished and added to; no cooking bowls for the microwave etc.

Overall we had a great time - were helpfully and warmly welcomed by our hosts and we can recommend the apartment to others.

Great central location, with canal view, basic apartment

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location, convenient to tram. Very hospitable host. Lovely front room with view of the canal. It's a bit basic--no oven, only a microwave, and no washing machine, and beds a little bit too soft, but otherwise great.

Best Apartment (and Deal) in Joordan

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved this apartment. The view of the canal from the livingroom was amazing. We stayed for ten days, and never once were we bored of gazing out of the huge windows as if they were one Dutch Master's landscape painting. The layout of the apartment is also well designed. For two people it was spacious. We had friends visit for dinner, with more than enough room for everyone to enjoy themselves. In addition, I loved the record player and 1980s albums, which was a special treat down memory lane. Marcel was also an amazing host. He let us into the apartment early (which not every host does, even if he or she didn't have guests the previous night) and he changed our towels in the middle of our one-week stay, so we could have clean ones. Who does that? Moreover, he gave us great recommendations for things to see and places to eat in the neighborhood. I should add that the Joordan district, where this apartment is located, just happens to be one of the most wonderful neighborhoods in Amsterdam. The apartment is also within walking distance to terrific shops, restaurants, bars, and the city center. Transportation to the museums is easy (though you could also walk). In short, this rental was fantastic across the board, and we would definitely come back here again, and again.

Wonderful host, great comfortable and quiet apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our host was amazing. He allowed us to check in super early because of our morning arrival and helped us in at 7am Sunday morning. The view and living area is large and couches comfortable with great views. The kitchen was a good size for cooking breakfast and snacks. The bedroom was quiet and the beds very comfortable. The apartment is only up one small flight of stairs and easy to climb compared to many traditional Amsterdam apartments. The shower is really nice and large with good heat and water pressure. The AH supermarket is literally 30 seconds around the corner and all the sights within 30 minutes depending on how far you are going. Marcel even provides use of the tram card which was so helpful especially if you want to go further away in the city. We had a wonderful stay! Thank you Marcel!
