This apartment is located right next to a wonderful kaffee & pastry shop. Right around the corner a full grocery store & the tram #9 that goes all the way to Central Station. It's in a residential a location. There is a great range of restaurants, bars and shopping areas. Just across the street is a large park for playing with a beautiful greenhouse restaurant. The apartment has a studio-kitchen, private balcony, a large adjoining bathroom, a sitting room & attached sun room. There are lots of windows to let in the sun. The kitchen is well stocked with all you need if your interested in cooking & a small reefer-freezer or just making your morning kaffe. I would definitely book this apartment again. If your needing to get to the Schiphol Airport for an early flight an Uber ride is only about 15 minutes.
We stayed here for 5 nights in October and loved every minute of our stay in Amsterdam. The apartment is on the east side of the city (as the name suggests), about 30 seconds walk from the nearest tram stop. The number 9 tram takes about 15 minutes to take you to/from the city centre.
It's possible to walk into the centre from the apartment, but I'd recommend just getting a tram pass as it's there's plenty of walking to be done once you arrive in the city! (I'm an avid Fitbit user and didn't struggle with meeting my step target any day we were in Amsterdam - despite using the tram for longer journeys.)
The apartment is above a shop, although the shop is very quiet and we never heard anything from downstairs at all while we were in the apartment.
Ravir was a very welcoming and friendly host (Peter was on holiday so left Ravir to it!). He gave us a few suggestions for local amenities. The organic bakery on the corner of the road is perfect for picking up a quick breakfast snack as you wait for the tram into the centre.
This is an up-and-coming area of the city and has a couple of lovely parks nearby, as well as some shops and a few restaurants.
If coffeeshops are your thing, then there is a nice one (popular with locals and too far out of the city for many tourists) called Smoke Palace, about 10 minutes walk towards the centre from the apartment.
The apartment itself is furnished nicely and includes a TV with cable, although tbh we didn't use the TV. There's even a Nespresso coffee machine in the kitchen area, together with a couple of varieties of capsules - a very nice touch as it was lovely to have a decent coffee every morning before we left to spend the day in the centre of the city.
The beds (two singles, fixed together into a double) are very comfortable and there are even two pillows of varying softness provided for each bed. You get the impression that Peter and Ravir really have tried to consider everything to make your stay a pleasant one.
Ravir explained that the wifi had recently been patchy after a utility company accidentally damaged the line, but it had now been fixed. Our experience of the wifi was that it was fine for basic usage but too slow for streaming and downloading large files required patience. It's fine for planning some trips and Facebooking your photos etc... we didn't have any problems with it tbh.
Great apartment in a lovely area of Amsterdam with all the shops and facilities we needed together with beautiful local parks. The apartment is exactly as shown on the website and the balcony was great for sitting out in the evening. Fast efficient public transport - we got 7 day passes covering all local trams, buses, Metro and trains for 34 euros from the travel centre opposite Centraal Station which was brilliant value.
Ravir and Peter are really helpful and friendly without being intrusive and had stocked the flat with lots of basic essentials like coffee, tea, shampoo, washing up liquid. This was a great holiday and we will certainly book this apartment again.
My girlfriend and i stayed here for 5 days and found our stay was excellent! The location was perfect, not even 20mins from dam square and right beside a supermarket, park, coffee shop and many more. Also it was about a 30 second walk from tram stop! The Apartment itself was very clean with fresh bed covers and towels, enough room for two people with kitchen, lovely bathroom and balcony if your interested in having a smoke! Didn't find one thing wrong and would definitely stay again. The owners made it real easy to find the place and we're very welcoming when we arrived! 5/5

Fantastic location because it's right around the supermarket, and close to central. Nice and clean too!
