My husband, teenage daughter and myself recently stayed here for 5 nights.
I was a bit concerned when we entered the building and went up the stairs after we arrived. There are 2 flights of stairs (to get to the apartment) which seemed dark and dreary and gave a bad first impression but once we entered the apartment we were pleasantly surprised to see how bright and spacious it was. I was a little nervous booking this place but have no regrets at all. Joan, the owner is super to deal with. Responded quickly to my many inquiries before and during my stay. Very helpful. My husband and daughter were impressed and agreed they would go back there as we regularly visit Amsterdam.The interior is very new and had everything you needed except food and drink. The grocery/pharmacy is a couple of doors away. The tram system is right outside the door and there are many cafes, a market, fast food establishments, etc. nearby. I highly recommend this apartment if you will be staying in Amsterdam...
