We stayed in metropolitan for 5 nights at the beginning of September.
The location was fantastic couldn't be more central. The hosts were lovely who helped us with places to eat and things to do and took us on a boat ride.
The room itself is the best part large comfy bed tv and coffee maker. Also a fridge so you can buy food from the shops and make your own lunch to eat in your garden! Excellent place couldn't recommend it enough already looking into going back!

Sitting in the peace of the courtyard garden of the studio flat at 29 Sint Nicolaasstraat, it is difficult to believe that you are in the centre of Amsterdam, within walking distance of just about everywhere! Marijn and Sebastiaan grew up in the city, and could not be more congenial hosts, friendly and witty, and all of course in fluent English. They made our stay in the beautiful city of Amsterdam a joy, and after just a few days it felt like we were leaving old friends. We could not recommend the Metropolitan more highly. We were so lucky to have found such a great place to stay.
Thank you Marijn and Sebastiaan.
Great room in extremely central location, very friendly hosts and very clean with a nice bed. Comes with a garden and free bikes, bottle of wine and espresso. The area has plenty of great bars and shops and museums are within walking distance. Can't imagine a more comfortable way to stay in Amsterdam.
An absolute gem of a find with fantastic hosts who welcomed us like old friends. The apartment is spacious, spotlessly clean and well cared for. There were fresh flowers in the room, coffee, tea, and chocolates along with lots of nice cushions, reading material, DVD's, maps, and city information. The hosts were also kind enough to give us their phone number for any further advice or assistance we required. Sebastiaan organised a trip around the canals for us which was great fun in a little boat! The Metropolitan is a very private, peaceful place with a lovely garden perfect for escaping from the crowds. The location is perfect just 5 minutes walk from central station and the red light area, and 10 minutes from Jordan. It has really comfy beds, a powerful hot shower and great central heating. The outside wall is glass and lets in lots of natural light, it can open up completely if desired. I did originally book the room for my sister and I but then requested to add my other sister at a later date. This was not a problem, an extra mattress was provided and placed on top of the bed sized sofa which was absolutely fine for sleeping. The apartment is located on the ground floor of the hosts home in a residential street. It is not in the style of a traditional hotel/B&B in that there is only the one room for rent. This to me was a bonus as there was absolutely no noise from other tourists. I really enjoyed staying here and hope to return with my husband and small son before the end of the year.
Not only in the heart of Amsterdam: ideal space for a couple, very confortable, nice natural light, good hiting in winter, enough equipement, and warm hosts. HIGHT RECCOMENDED!
