“Amsterdam holiday”
Reviewed 6 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Booked nine day stay at this apartment. Easy to book and met Bjorn who helps Marlene when she is out of town. Bjorn did. Very good job of helping us settle in. The apt. Is directly across from the canal in the Jordan area and we enjoyed its location, near to a lot of sites. If you are tired, it is easy to call a cab to any place such as the Rijeka Museum, especially since the first days were sooooo cold with a very strong wind. We were happy that we could raise the heat when we freezing from the cold but always turned it down when we left. Bjorn helped us w the tv which he fixed before he left and he made room for some storage which meant opening up the locked cabinets and moving Marlene's stuff elsewhere in the bedroom and under the sink in the bathroom . Adequate storage for our clothes and suitcases was a problem but we lived with it. We do think that should be less of Marlene's clutter of books, low tables and an increase in usable hooks that a small person like myself could reach and this would alleviate a lot of concerns about easily moving around the apartment. We loved the comfy sofa, bed and then espresso machine. Wish it was easy to do our own laundry since the washer in the hall closet with no dryer would not work in such cold weather. Took our laundry down the street and that was a better option. Otherwise, loved the apartment and enjoyed ourselves even though we worse so many layers of clothes!

“Fantastic Owner and Fantastic location”
Reviewed 25 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

people found this review helpful

The location of this apartment is absolutely fantastic. Walking distance from everything you would want to do in Amsterdam including Anne Frank House, all the museums and Old Jewish quarter (Gassan Diamond Factory, Spanish Portuguese Synagogue). The owner, Marlene, was so helpful in every and any way. We communicated any time by whatsapp and she was totally responsive both before we arrived and while we were there and very very helpful and nice.

There are a few things you should know about this apartment.

1. Its on the ground floor which is a plus if you don't want to climb stairs, however you need to close the windows when you leave each time and even at night in the living room for safety. There is noise from the street at night, not crazy noise and it does settle down late at night. I would imagine that this apartment is much better in the cold months. Its a very authentic Amsterdam area and feeling. Not at all like a hotel.

2. The apartment is small which is OK as we were just a couple, but its very cluttered with art work, magazines, pillows , books and such. Some may like this, but we would have preferred more space for our things.

3. There is no air conditioning and I would warn anyone not to use this apartment in the hot months. We happened upon a freak heat wave in September which we could not have predicted - the temperatures rose to 30 deg Celcius !! Very unusual for Amsterdam, but because we could not leave the windows open, we were uncomfortable, especially since we come from a country where air conditioning is absolutely standard.

All in all , we had a wonderful time in Amsterdam and if anyone wants to contact me about this apartment, I'd be happy to answer.

“Great apartment in a great location”

My wife and I spent 4 wonderful days in this apartment that is close to all the things a visitor would like to do in Amsterdam. It's about a 10 minute walk to Anne Frank house and hop on hop off canal boat. Marlene met us there at a predetermined time and showed us all of the important features of the apartment and provided a list of restaurants and shops that were nearby. She was very helpful and everything about the apartment was great.

“Good Location for Sightseeing”
Reviewed 10 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The apartment is very conveniently located so we could walk everywhere we wanted--quite safe also. We didn't want to eat every meal out, so it was very nice to be able to stay in and cook a couple of nights. Plenty of dishes and cookware were provided and there was a nice market nearby. The bedroom is small but the bed was large and very comfortable. There was no air conditioning and no fan so it was a little warm at night and you couldn't leave the windows open because you were at ground level. Street noise was sometimes bothersome. Also the bathroom was modern and new, but there was almost no place to set out toiletries and the only hooks for bath towels were in the shower and very high. There were drawers below the sink where we could keep our toiletries and we would leave the drawer open so that we could access what we needed. Lots of restaurants in the area. Good apartment for a couple.

“Not what it appears to be”
Reviewed 29 August 2016 for a stay in November 2015

people found this review helpful

I have frequently rented apts in Amsterdam. I like some basic comforts, but do not expect perfection. This is the first time that I was disappointed in a serious way. The pictures of this apt do not show how small the rooms really are. This place could only work for one person or two who know and like each other very much and are accustomed to tiny spaces. Bring earplugs. Issues come from the sounds of car traffic stopping at the corner and people talking as they walk along the sidewalk (which is on the other side of the windows) --you could reach out and touch them, they are that close. The combination of these inconveniences caused me to leave and seek another apartment.

Hai Wander girl or Margareth, or ..Michelle..( you change all the time your name ) The pictures of my Apartment are made by Tripadvisor Proffesional Photographer Team, so totally real, and correct, and approved by Flipkey.
When you left you, without saying that you were leaving, you didn't close the frontdoor, it was wide-open, in the middle of the night.
