Our host John was abroad at the time of our visit, but his neighbour was on hand to greet us and look after us in any way that he could. Very welcoming and helpful.
The flat is in a fantastic location with views over the Red Light district. It is located an easy walk from the main railway station and to some lovely local neighbourhoods. We would, however, not recommend bringing children to stay here. The flat is also on the 3rd floor, which might be important to less able bodied travellers. Understandably, the location gets busy and the noise from the street below travels up. We were not looking for a quiet time, so this was ideal.
Had a fantastic stay in this bright airy apt that is full of character and has great views, such a fantastic location , looking fwd to coming back some day !
Location is in the heart of the action.
Easy access from rail station.
This means it’s very loud into the late hours because of the large amount of foot traffic.
The third floor apartment dampens the noise level considerably especially because the bedrooms are up another level.
Beds are platforms on floor.
Apartment furnishings are simple.
Very steep stairs to reach the apartment and the bedrooms if you have trouble with stairs this is not the place for you.
Great people watching from the front window.
Marijuana smell is pungent in the staircase leading to the apartment. If grass is your thing this won’t bother you.
We stayed over a very cold weekend in March. There were three of us and the apartment was excellent.
It was very charmingly decorated and there were lots of amenities.
A huge draw was the location. It’s impossible to get lost as it really was very central, walking distance to most places we visited, including the museums, etc.
The owner was very communicative and his neighbour downstairs was also incredibly helpful.
When a problem was encountered, things were dealt with quickly by the owner.
All in all, I’d recommend this if you aren’t afraid of being in the thick of it!
