My husband and I were in Amsterdam for 3 nights. I did a lot of research online and just really wanted to find a good quality, clean, accommodation. I did not want the typical Hotel style but something with character. We travel a lot and have stayed in many stylish hotels and some that were just disappointing. The Amsterdam Jewell - Amber is everything I had imagined it would be...(and more) charming, loads of character, beautiful historic construction, great location and wonderful hosts.
We stayed in the Amber Suite, which is on the 3rd/4th level. Quiet area and street. Loft was a beautiful open wooden beam construction. Built sometime in the 1600's. This warm and cosy loft was spotless. Fridge, Stove, Dishwasher. Free Wi-Fi and cable tv on a flatscreen. Breathtaking views of the Signal Canal from Living room area. The main level is kitchen, living room and washroom, (toilet-sink-shower) there are step stairs to bedroom. When arriving at Flat, once you are in the front door - there are 3 flights of Amsterdam traditional stairs (enclosed spiral staircase) so I would recomend small suitcase...we had 4 Large suitcases - between Marten (Flat Owner) and my Husband they got them up. (do not try to multi-task while carrying suitcases up very steep stairs. ie. answering cell phones...ha ha)
We wanted to stay close to Dam Square so we could walk to most attractions. Great grocery store 1min walk away, restaurant downstairs next door. The Palace and Dam Square was literally a 2 minute walk away. We also walked to the Heineken Brewery, however it is about a 40 min walk but the train is easily accessible. 9 Streets shopping district is minutes away. Central Station and Red Light District was about 10 minutes away. We recommend this flat for couples who want a great location but a romantic aura.
When we return to Amsterdam we will definitely be staying at the Amsterdam Jewel again.
Thank you very much Marten for making our stay so wonderful. :)
