Having read some negative reviews prior to leaving we were not sure what to expect. We found a nice sized flat with 2 bedrooms, access to laundry, a small living room, kitchen and dining space. It was clean and comfortable. There was daily maid service, though the last day the toilet tissue was not filled and the next morning one of us had to go out and pick some up at the grocery store. However, walking distance to some top restaurants, proximity to all sight seeing attractions, grocery and shopping, made the quiet location perfect. Note that you will have to pull your luggage from the registration to your unit, ours was a block away. Then also up stairs depending on the unit. For us that was fine, but may not be for everyone. Staff at reception was very helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay there again.

- Colourful De Waterkant Village is a unique European influenced village of semi-detached quaint cottages and cobbled streets preserved from the 1760’s. Cradled between the city and the V&A Waterfront, De Waterkant Village is avant-garde, a cultural urban refuge highlighted by the abundance of restaurants, art galleries, clubs, salsa clubs, tapas bars and Parisian inspired café’s. Drawing comparisons from cultural and artistic villages from all over the world, De Waterkant embraces individuality and theatricality, echoed in the architecture and vibrancy of its residents and visitors. Walking on the beautiful sidewalks, one cannot help but be caught up in its spell, cast by the beauty of the Dutch influenced architecture, with flower boxes under the windows, sprawling balconies and rooftop decks providing exquisite views and majestic old trees that line the streets, filtering the sun selectively through their branches. This is a place that will tempt you into its fold and dare you to indulge and delight in life’s finer pleasures. ... more less
