We had a fantastic stay at The Guestroom, it's compact and bijou but everything you need is there from coffee machine to dishwasher. Close enough to the centre but not too close.... Only 10-15 mins on the trams and you're at The Dam. When I go to Amsterdam again will definitely be booking this little gem of an apartment.
When staying in Amsterdam in the past we have always stayed in or close to the city center. This trip we opted for a stay outside of the center but within a block of a quick tram that took us into the city. The location in a neighborhood was convenient yet leaving one free to go into the center to explore or take in the neighborhood itself. A small shopping center was a little more than a block away and two supermarkets were within easy walking distance to stock up on drinks and snacks and breakfast items. The Guestroom itself was clean and well suited for a couple or small family. This trip was my husband and myself along with my husband's 88 year old stepfather. The only "downside" was that while the apartment was on the ground floor - opening up into a beautiful and restful garden, one had to go up 3 steps to the entrance to the building and then down a set of stairs to the garden apartment. Other than that - the Guestroom was great - comprising of a large open area with a fully contained kitchen, dining table with 4 chairs, 2 chairs that folded out to beds, a chair, television and, a convenient surprise - a Mac that enabled one to surf, check-in online, etc. There was a pocket bedroom (with plenty of closet space) containing two beds that can be set up as singles or put together for a double bed. The bedroom was closed off by a large sliding door giving privacy between those sleeping in the bedroom and those in the larger area. The bathroom was clean and had a good shower. Free wi-fi is also available for your phones and devices. The Guestroom was modern, clean and fresh. We would definitely stay again. The owners were friendly and helpful and provide a lot of city information and brochures allowing you to plot out your visit. They provide a welcoming booklet that includes a map of the area, highlighting stores and other places of interest. There are a number of restaurants close by for enjoyable dinners sitting outside enjoying those long summer evenings. We can't say enough about what a joy our stay was and highly recommend the Guestroom as a wonderful oasis in a large city.
Very comfortable apartment for a short stay. The owners are very helpful and provided many personal touches in little extras you might need. It is easy to get to the apartment from the centre of Amsterdam and it’s a lovely area . We particularly enjoyed the garden outlook and access. I would definitely recommend and stay again.
Well, what a fantastic find! Brilliant location in a quiet neighbourhood which is a perfect retreat from a busy day in central Amsterdam. The tram from the centre is direct and easy to use and took us very close to the property. We struck lucky with the weather so enjoyed the garden. Nice shops and restaurants nearby.
Excellent facilities including a much appreciated Nespresso machine. Also lovely to have toiletries and hairdryer provided so less to pack. Beautifully clean and tidy with very helpful owners who are there if you need them but who otherwise leave you to enjoy your stay.
One of the best properties we have stayed in and would highly recommend. Thank you.
Located in a very peaceful neighbourhood approximately a 15mins tram ride from central Amsterdam, this really was a great stay.
We arrived a bit early but Victor was more than happy for us to check in, and we found fresh fruit, wine and milk waiting for us. The flat itself has a double bedroom and a single pull-out bed in the living room, both of which were very comfortable. There is a small kitchen with fridge, microwave/grill, dining room table, etc, with a glass door leading into the garden.
The neighbourhood is very tranquil with tram stops, restaurants, bakery, bars, a nice park, and a big supermarket all within a 5-10mins walk.The hosts live just one floor up from the flat so are available if you need anything, but they certainly let you be otherwise and are very friendly.
All in all a lovely stay and I would happily stay again.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Guest House. If is a beautiful apartment with everything we needed and is located an easy distance from the city centre. Marit and Victor were very helpful and welcoming.
This apartment was beautiful and we couldn’t fault it at all, the owners were lovely and anything we needed they were there to help, we had a lovely stay very peaceful and the apartment set out was perfect for the 2 of us. We were about 10mins from the central of Amsterdam, and the trams were very easy to get on and took us to where we wanted to go! We was the for 2 nights and we managed to do everything we wanted to do! We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend to friends and family xx
