Very much enjoyed this peaceful place. On our first night Renee brought us up some cookies and chocolate. I loved the view from the window, the kitchen had everything we needed and the walk to the metro was wonderful 15 minute walk from our place. there is a little store up the road as well as a great pool! Definately would stay again
My husband and I LOVED this apartment. It’s in the lovely Jordaan, close to Westermarkt and the red light district, but even the museums and the zoo are only a 30 minute walk. Having a fridge and kitchen was great and you get so much more space and comfort for your money than what you would get in a hotel.
The only issue we had was getting the key. We had arranged to be there between 1:30 and 2 to pick up the key from the housekeeper’s daughter. It was November and quite cold outside, but we got there at 1 and waited until 2, ringing the 2nd floor buzzer (per the original contract) more and more as the hour progressed. Nobody showed. We hadn’t pay for international cell service, so we went to a bar around the corner to get some lunch (we had been waiting until we could drop our bags) and tried contacting Dirk by WiFi. While he did respond within 30 minutes or so, it was a tense time since we didn’t know where we were going to stay and I even started reaching out to VRBO (without a phone even this was tricky). Dirk told us that the housekeeper, Christina, would come over in the next 10 minutes to let us in and said that her daughter had been there the whole time (when we looked back on it later we’re guessing she got there before us and was waiting on the 3rd floor where the apartment we were staying in was).
Christina was lovely and prompt. She showed us around the apartment and totally put our minds at ease!
The apartment was a 5, the price was a 5, Christina was a 5, but because of the aggravation and fear that we had getting in, overall it was a 4.
