The Captains house is a great, well presented place to stay, a pretty, cool quiet place, 10 minute walk from the train station.

Amsterdam is a really busy place to spend time walking around the tourist sights, it was a real pleasure to have such a beautiful restful retreat to call home for a few days!

Arjan and his family were lovely too!

“Captains house Amsterdam”

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the captains house.
Arjen was the perfect host. Loved all the extras that were supplied flowers, sweets, tea, coffee and well stocked fridge. Also informative short tour of the area. Arjen allowed us to drop our bags off early and looked after our bags when we checked out until it was time to get the train to the airport.
The only slight negative was the earlier than expected wake up call when the construction team at hotel next door were removing the crane.
If we return to Amsterdam in future we would be love to stay again.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 25 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The owner (Arjen) was very nice from start to finish.. He was very easy to talk to and always answered back quickly. The apartment itself was faultless and looked exactly the same as in the pictures. When we arrived, despite how late it was, Arjen took us on a small tour around the area showing us where to go and what places to stay clear of. Furthermore on our leaving day we were running slightly late, however Arjen gave us an extra hour and also offered to keep our suitcases safe in the apartment whilst we went to go eat. I will be sure to book this apartment again as both the apartment and Arjen were great! Thank you for your hospitality!

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 22 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The Captains House was very well located for easy walking access to all attractions in Amsterdam. The owner, Arjen, met us on arrival and helped us bring our bags inside. The apartment was delightful and had everything needed for a family of 4, including beer, wine and soft drinks in the fridge. Arjen then, very kindly, took us on a walking tour of the local area and gave some excellent recommendations for local restaurants and coffee houses. We all felt very comfortable at the Captains House and would certainly stay again.

We stayed for 5 nights at the apartment with our kids. Arjen is a great host and his tips and suggestions for sights and restaurants were excellent. The apartment was very clean and comfortable for 4 of us and we enjoyed being able to walk everywhere. Highly recommended!

“Wonderful Stay in Amsterdam”
Reviewed 12 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We stayed here for 5 nights in early July. Arjen was the perfect host, showing us the best places to eat and orienting us to the city. The place was spotlessly clean, beds were very comfortable and Arjen even left us some much appreciated local beer, wine and cookies, plus fresh flowers. There is no oven which was not a problem for us. The extra half bath was a big plus for four people. Stairs are steep but Arjen helped with our luggage. It is located in a great part of Amsterdam, just enough away from the super crowded tourist spots but still in the heart of town, and easily accessible to everything. The only negative for us was the construction noise outside one bedroom window that starts early in the morning as we like to sleep with our windows open. If you keep them closed this shouldn't be an issue, and doesn't affect the back bedroom at all. Thank you Arjen for your hospitality and a wonderful stay!!

Management Response
14 Jul 2017
Hi Deborah,

Thank you for the review and thank you for your stay!

For others reading this review: The kitchen has gas burners, dishwasher and a combi microwave (with gril function), it is relative compact and an oven did not fit.

The shutters in the bedroom we got installed in anticipation of the Amrath Hotel building an extension. We're dealing for a year now with their renovation... But fortunately the construction is in the last stage and the first guests have already made their reservations for September/October for these rooms.

You were lovely guests! We hope you enjoy the rest of your trip!

Kind regards,

Arjen and family

“great location, great host”
Reviewed 10 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Beautiful flat in the historic section, close to all the sights, but still quiet at night. Arjen, our host, made sure the refrigerator was stocked, and gave us a tour of the area. It was nice to have 1-1/2 baths for the four of us, sometimes difficult to come by in the old apartments.
