The best way to get to the apartment:
From Schiphol Airport to Central Station by train:
- Once you have cleared customs and still in the airport, follow the signs to the train station, which is located underground of a big hall with high ceiling. Don’t forget first to buy the train tickets (the machines are yellow and next to the escalators – ask help if you need any assistance);
- From this hall, go down the escalators to the railway, but first find out on the boards above the escalators which train will take you to Central Station (Amsterdam Central or Amsterdam CS). The trip will take about 15 minutes if you take the fast train.
Direct from Schiphol Airport by taxi (the best way to start):
- Don’t take any taxi offered inside the airport hall. You can take a taxi directly in front of the main exit of the airport
Please look for TCA Taxi
Park and Ride - P+R in Amsterdam
The Park and Ride (P+R) parking facilities are located on the outskirts of Amsterdam near the ring A-10. The idea is that you park your car for a low fee of € 8,- per 24 hours (as from February 2011), and you receive a special public transport ticket, a chipcard – so called OV card, to get to the city centre, and to return to the parking where you left your car (special OV cards for up to 5 people per one car parked). These are specially made OV cards not suitable for your communications throughout the city, made only for your transfer to and from the city centre. They are valid for 4 days. You will therefore need another OV card to use the public transport during your stay in Amsterdam.
With an additional payment you may purchase 48 and 72 hours public transport tickets. You may park your car at the P+R sit up to the maximum of four days. You should inform the parking service about it, so you will be receiving public transport tickets for all these days. As they are heavily subsidized, you must return your used public transport tickets to the P+R parking service at your departure, when paying your parking fees for the whole stay.
P+R car parks are, open 7 days a week, 24 hours with the exception of the P+R Bos en Lommer (from 7 am to 10 pm). They are all supervised but we do not advise you to leave anything of value in your car because break-in's are common in Amsterdam.

Thai kitchen is fun!
It's not about difficult preparations - it's about fresh ingredients. Thai people love to eat together. Let's do like them: enjoy, taste and share.
This restaurant creates a beautiful (and delicious) fusion of Japanese, Chinese and Koreans food, on the Nieuwmarkt. The rates are very reasonable, cheap for the quality that you get.
A must go!

There's more than 70 traders and on Saturday the stalls are mostly organic and eco products. Mondays you'll find second hand bargains. There's also the Westermarkt to visit on Monday mornings, which despite it's name is actually held at the Noordermarket.

I stayed in this apartment for 3 nights, and I have only positive things to say about the whole experience. The apartment itself is located in a nice quiet residential area, close to some local restaurants/bars/supermarket etc. The city centre is a short walk, and there is a tram stop on the street, so for sightseeing, the location was perfect.
The apartment was very clean, bedlinen, towels etc are all provided. There was nothing else that we could have asked for, and if I return to Amsterdam, I will definitely stay here again.
Interaction with Carlos before arrival was first class. On arriving Herbert came out to greet us and brought us to our apartment. Herbert was the friendliest and most pleasant host we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. The apartment was exceptionally clean and beautifully presented and would definitely recommend to anyone. Thanks so much Herbert and Carlos :-)
We LOVED our stay in this great apartment. We were in Amsterdam for 10 days and the location and apartment could not have been more perfect for our needs. It is a lovely apartment with all the amenities one should need (plus a HUGE bathroom by European standards). Carlos and Herbert (and Rares) were kind, friendly, and helpful. In short, we greatly look forward to our next stay in this apartment. Carlos and Herbert, thank you for a very lovely stay.
Carlos and Rares is amazing host! Everythings was perfect! The apartmante in very good locate and quite and clean. I am sure will come back again…:) It was just a perfect holiday! Thank you so much!!! :)
Beautiful apartment by the canal - done up in an extremely tasteful manner, with a huge bathroom (given it is not so common in popular tourist European destinations) and a functional kitchen. The apartment is around 30mins walk from the AMS central station and around 15mins to Leidseplein (the street where most of the action happens); however there are trams as well, that you can take from right outside the apartment. The closest departmental store is about 7-8mins walk.
While we didn't meet Carlos, he had his friends Rares & Ward take good care of us.
We surely loved our stay here!
My family of 3 had a wonderful few days here. We were welcomed by Herbert and Rares, who explained everything and were very welcoming. The apartment is exactly as described and the bathroom was amazing! Loved the position, close to some wonderful shops and cafés and it was lovely looking out over the canal. Highly recommended.
I loved this apartment, great location and amazing view to the canal. Herbert is very kind, helpfull and charming. I will return.
We had the most amazing time staying in Herbert and Carlos' apartment. The flat is clean, tidy and exactly as it looks in the pictures. It is in a lovely area and really close to the centre and some lovely shops and restaurants. We were able to check in early and Herbert was very welcoming, he showed us round the apartment and showed us how to use everything and upon discovering that the coffee machine seemed to be playing up a bit he got a new one. I would recommend the place for anyone wanting a lovely apartment with lovely hosts to stay in Amsterdam and will tell all my friends about it.
Thanks for making our trip so lovely and easy!
