My wife and I stayed 16 days in this apart. It is as described. It is on the 3rd floor, there is an elevator (large enough to take a bike along if necessary). The owner is very generous, helpful and easy to get along with.
Bed is comfortable. WIFI is working fine.
We especially enjoyed:
- the coffee machine
- the balcony
- the cat (Vondel)
My husband and I were thrilled with our stay and if ever we visit Amsterdam again this will definitely be our first choice to stay.
Afina is the perfect host and provided everything that we could need for a fantastic stay. Vondel the cat is just gorgeous and made our stay even more enjoyable with her sweet personality.
The apartment is perfectly located just outside of Amsterdam Central but still close enough to enjoy everything in the city and surrounding tourist areas.
The bus stop being so close made it so easy to get wherever we wanted to go.
There is a fabulous Chinese restaurant downstairs and although a little more pricey than we were used to (as with everything in Amsterdam) the food was sensational.
There is a supermarket within a 10 minute walk for all essentials but Afina made sure that you needed nothing for at least a few days. Bread, milk, eggs, cheese, biscuits, soup, and more and the coffee OMG FABULOUS. We were so grateful for her thoughtfulness and what’s more, she even collected us from the Airport.
The apartment is perfect with two televisions and cable TV, two toilets and beautiful roomy living/dining area and comfy bed.
why would anyone want to spend a fortune and stay in a hotel when you can have your own apartment.
Thank you Afina for a wonderful memorable stay and please give Vondel a pat from me. you help make wonderful memories for us.
Only posting because of that lady who left the 1 star review as she sounds like a horrible woman.
In my experience the flat was lovely, no smell of smoke to be found, the hosts were very polite and accommodating. The fridge was stacked with free food and beer and the facilities were top notch.
I would definitely stay here again.
Wow! What a fantastic time we had whilst staying in Afinas appartment! Afina was very easily contactable before the stay and happy to answer any questions we had!
On arrival Afina met us with a very warm welcome and had stocked up the fridge with everything we needed whilst we were in the appartment which was perfect!
Everything was very clean and tidy and the space was great, the pictures dont do it justice.
Great location, took around 20 minutes to the centre on the ferry which you can catch a small walk from the appartment.
Vondel was a great extra to the appartment and gave fantastic cuddles after a long day walking around the city.
We will definitely be back to visit again! Thanks Afina xx
We had a lovely time staying and felt very welcome. Afina is so helpful and had even stocked up the fridge for us along with other goodies. Rooms are nice, everything is so clean and tidy, we all felt at home. Vondel the cat is the sweetest thing and we all miss her company. There is a bus you can take straight from the station but we found it easier to walk and get the free ferry across, also allowing us to explore areas of Amsterdam we dont usually see.
Afina and Vondel (the cat) are really nice hosts. They made us feel at home! She met us at the bus stop, showed us the apartment and even let us smoke at the house - which was really good, since it was a bit cold outside!
The apartment is not near the center of the city, but it's really easy to get there (just take a bus for 20 minutes and you'll be at the Central Station). There are the night buses also, so you can easily go back home after going to a bar or a club at the Centrum.
Thank you, Afina, for sharing your house with us.
We stayed at this apartment in Oct 2016 for 2 nights and found it to be exactly as described. The owner, Afina, was very welcoming & friendly and answered all of our questions and queries (I had previously sent her a lot of queries before we travelled and she answered all of them promptly with good advice). The owner met us as we got off the ferry and then drove us to the apartment, while pointing out the bus stops etc and how to get back from Centraal Station if we were out late.
The apartment is around a 10 min walk to the ferry (NDSM) which is free and takes you to Centraal Station. We caught the ferry a few times and each time it was very easy. Just hop on and hop off the other side. No tickets or anything. These run about every 10 mins so you never have to wait too long. Just look for the crowd of people and you will know if one is due soon!
We found the apartment a lovely place to return to on an evening for some peace away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We really enjoyed our stay here and loved the fact that access to the building is only via a key for the residents. so security is very good, and the apartment was quiet at night too. There are stairs and a lift, so the apartment would suit a variety of travellers: couple, older travellers, people with disabilities or a couple with young child/ren. The lift is very near to the apartment door, so not much walking to it needed. The apartment comes with a friendly cat called Vondel who was very placid and friendly and didn't bother us at all.
Thank you to Afina, for looking after us and we hope to see you again soon :)
