“Cosy and relaxing - the perfect 'Dam experience”
Reviewed 11 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

When you're in Amsterdam there's so much to do you're barely in your apartment.

This studio covers the basics and has everything you need - wifi, fridge, TV and an extremely comfortable bed.

The owner (and his daughter) were very helpful and friendly, aboslutely no problems there.

You can walk into town in 5 minutes, to a tram stop in 2 minutes and the station in 10. Perfect location, just outside the busy part of the centre so it's never too noisy.

It is near a small red light district but that's Amsterdam for you - you're never too far from one. It never caused us any problems.

Only drawback was that the windows don't open fully and need a wooden block to hold them up. Not a huge problem and quite common within the Dutch architecture, just a little bit more effort required.

We'll be back in Amsterdam for sure and will almost certainly be staying here again.

I had such a wonderful stay at the downtown Guestroom, the location is amazing, close by to all of the delights Amsterdam has to offer. The hosts were so friendly and welcoming, I can't wait to stay here again, I thouroughly recommend this place to anyone thinking of staying in Amsterdam.

“Warm and cosily”
Reviewed 29 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My husband, me and our 10 month old daughter spent 8 days in Amsterdam, it was our first family trip abroad. We stayed at this lovely apartment in the center of the old town, the location was perfect for us. The owner was very kind, she called a day before our arrival and asked if we needed some additional things for baby, like a tub, or a chair, or a bed. Even more, during our stay the child has got sick and Jacqueline called to her doctor and made an appointment for us! It was always warm in the apartment, teepot and a microwave served a big deal. As for me this was one of our best experiences with b&b so far, I totally recommend it!

“Cosy and well-placed”
Reviewed 18 March 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We stayed in this studio flat four days with my fiancée. The owner was welcoming and friendly, and was pleased to answer all our questions on the city.

The studio is clean and tidy, with a small refrigerator and a micro-wave oven. Plates, glasses and basic cutlery were available for us to dine in the flat.

The room was heated and controllable with a wall remote, and the rental included (free) Wi-Fi and TV (Although we didn't turn on the TV during our stay).

The place is very central to the city, being less than 10 minutes away from Amsterdam Central Train Station.

The cherry on the cake? We found some travel guides of the city in many languages, including ours (French), ready for us to use them through our stay.

Overall a very nice stay that we would renew with closed eyes.
