We had a lovely stay at Singel 96. It is situated just 10 mins walk from Centraal station, so our journey to and from the airport only took about 45 mins each way. It overlooks the Singel Canal, and is only a few minutes walk from several tram and bus stops and Dam Square. It is so easy to get around Amsterdam from here - even when the trams stopped running due to a storm there was plenty to do within walking distance. The apartment is spacious, clean and well stocked with useful items you would need away from home, including travel adaptors and shopping bags. The walls are decorated with several artworks and the kitchen has an eclectic mix of crockery which gives a homely feel. The king sized bed is very comfortable, and the bathroom includes a walk in shower, extra large bath and bidet. The kitchen has a gas cooker and small fridge. The owner Carolina is friendly and helpful and ensured we felt welcome (fresh tulips on the table on arrival and chocolate with my husband's name on it were lovely welcoming touches). The only drawback is the front door, which is very low due to the apartment being in the basement and may not suit someone who is too disabled to bend and manage 3 steps. Otherwise I would certainly recommend this apartment - we would definitely try to stay her again if we return to Amsterdam,
The basement apartment is just beautiful, especially the kitchen. We stayed with our 7 year old and there was plenty of space. I would definitely stay again.
Loved everything about this place. I could have used thinner pillows as I found the ones provided too thick for me. Other than that, this place had everything we needed and more. Not only was it cute, clean and comfortable, the location was perfect. Additionally, Carolina, the owner, made a friendly and helpful host. We loved the restaurants she recommended. I highly recommend!
We loved the great location, the warm & friendly greeting by Carolina!! Spacious apartment with no steep stairs to climb which is a rare treat in Amsterdam!! Highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit Amsterdam and feel like you really live there!! Warm thanks to Carolina!!

First of all, I want to say thank you to the owner Caroline, sweet, kind, wonderful, helpfull women. The apartments are wonderful, cozy. Location is amazing, walking distance all the places of interest, stunning views of the canal and a very tranquil place. Very comfortable bed, slept amazingly. It was a great vacation in Amsterdam. Be sure to come again and stay in this cozy place.
Excellent apartment in a very handy location. Beds were huge & comfy, kitchen had everything required, really big bathroom, and a very friendly & helpful host. Would definitely return, although if we run the marathon again next year, we could do with a stair lift being installed to get us in the door!!!
The apartment is ideally located for transport and within strolling distance of bars, shops and cafe. Lovely Indy bed and a huge bath!
Would stay again.
