One of the finds of the year!! A cracking apartment about 15mins away from Central Station. Tram number 4 is the one to get you there, however I didn't check my emails before leaving so missed that tip. Not to worry though a walk through the neighbourhood wet our appetite for our stay.
We have a habit of turning up early to where we are staying so our room wasn't ready. However Tanja took our bags for us and pointed us in the direction of one of her favourite bar/restaurants (It was after mid-day at this point) for us to get a late breakfast/early lunch. The recommendation was superb and after a leisurely lunch we strolled back to find our bags had been taken up to our room for us. Thank god is all I can say as the stairs up to our room were the thinnest but steepest I have ever seen. Staying here is not for anyone who struggles with stairs or planning on having shall we say too much to drink whilst in Amsterdam. The stairs weren't a problem for us, but certainly provided a little workout each day (and made sure we were very organised so we didn't have to go back up to the room too often)
The room itself was very spacious. We had a double bed, sofa/chairs living room area, wooden dining table and kitchenette, private bathroom with washing machine and a large wardrobe. A lot of space for just 2 people but I think that helped make it so special. The room was bright, clean and well kept with a very home made little booklet on the facilities and area. Tanja helped with breakfast suggestions and anything we needed direction wise.
Apart from when we had our suitcase with us we walked into and back from town. It wasn't far and we got to see plenty of things along the way taking in the sights of Amsterdam.
We will be going back to stay here again!!
