We stayed for a week and wish we could have stayed longer, the apartment felt like home and Carolina is the perfect host. We have a seven year old daughter who was made to feel welcome and the apartment was family friendly. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our family meals. When we are next in Amsterdam we will not hesitate to book again.
The apartment is a 10 minute walk from Centraal Station with generous space including a big bathroom and well equipped kitchen. There is an extra room available making the apartment suitable for a family of up to 5 people.
The apartment looks out onto a canal and is close to all the major attractions of Amsterdam. The owner is very helpful with suggestions for restaurants, supermarkets and local attractions.
The location is perfect and the accommodation has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. It is very clean, spacious and traditional which we liked. We will without doubt be returning..... loved it x
It was our first trip to Amsterdam and I spent hours searching online for a rental. I read many reviews and am so glad I listened to others. This is the best! Stop searching and book it!
The pros: Excellent location for walking to museums, restaurants, the train station, catching a boat tour on the canals or a bus to see the windmills or gardens. ( We are in our 60s and walked everywhere. It is a safe and lovely neighborhood)
The apartment is very nice without having to climb a narrow stairway with your luggage. It is a basement apartment, but you have windows out the front for light. You can also take the folding chairs out front and sip a glass of wine on the canal. The bed was comfortable and the bath and kitchen were spotless and larger than they appear in the photos. There is a walk in shower in addition to the tub. Best of all Carolina will make you feel at home. She went above and beyond as a hostess with providing lists and maps to help us find our way...Oh,and a lovely bottle of wine and chocolate as welcome gifts! We hope to return as we had a wonderful time and will definitely hope to rent Singel 96 again!!
The Cons... You don't have a view, but to have that think about hauling your bags up many stairs!! We were out all day seeing the sights and again out for the evenings anyway so didn't need a view.
You will be glad you booked Singel 96!! Enjoy!
We enjoyed the authentic lovely flat in the heard of Amsterdam because
+ very good located near main station in a quite area
+ 5min walk into the main shopping street
+ very nice hirer (supported whenever we had questions)
+ nice and spacious flat (even for 4)
+ very good restaurants and nice boutiques with less tourists just around the corner
The only thing we missed have been our house shoes as the floor is quiet cold.
Whenever we come back to Amsterdam, we will choose the single96!
Thanks Carolina for your hospitality!
This was about the fifth stay in Amsterdam in recent years - mainly work but weekend off too. The apartment is on a wide but quiet canal, right in the centre but with none of the tourist scene and a great Amsterdam feel.
However, if you want the sights, or to travel, then Dam Square and the Central Station are both about 10 minutes walk.
The apartment has a delightful old Dutch style but is also really warm and comfortable. The welcome was excellent and I thoroughly recommend it. Will definitely be back.
It was brilliant to look out of the front window onto the Singel. As the apartment is slightly below road level, the view is more at canal level - quite charming.
Shops are very convenient as are lots of restaurants.
Thoroughly recommend to anyone who wants to really 'feel' they are in Amsterdam.
A great location on the Singel Canal. Close to everywhere you want to be in Amsterdam.The location is perfect for exploring all parts of Amsterdam by foot or by tram. Carolina was a gracious host and had fabulous restaurant and sightseeing recommendations. The apartment is cozy and comfortable and we enjoyed the two sink bathroom, the shower and the full kitchen. But the star of the show was the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in. We woke up early one morning to a power outage in Amsterdam and Carolina came down the steps with a tray full of candles. We will stay at Singel 96 upon our return to Amsterdam.
