Nice and quiet private room on the fourth floor of our apartment building. The building is located right in the middle of the Canals area, close to all of the main tourist attractions. Enjoy Amsterdam, come stay with us!

The separate room is located on the fourth floor of the building (not recommended for people with limited mobility!), but is part of our apartment on the first floor (other apartments in between).

The room has high quality box-spring beds and mattresses. The beds can be used as a double or two separate beds and is therefore convenient for couples, friends or single travelers. The room is fully equipped with a sink, wardrobe, kettle, mini-fridge, hairdryer, table and chairs. Wi-fi is available in the room.
Bedlinen, towels and coffee & tea are provided.

Shared facilities:
The bathroom, toilet, kitchen and balcony of our apartment, all located on the first floor, are shared with us.
You can buy and store groceries and cook if you like!

About us:
Me and my housemate Tjeerd (the guy with the beard) are both medicine students in our mid-twenties. We've travelled extensively ourselves and therefore hope to offer you exactly what a traveller is looking for.
We will do our best to make your stay as convenient and enjoyable as possible. Of course we can give you our local tips about bars, restaurants, clubs, sights, or help you with onward travel.

Our place is located in a quiet street between the Prinsengracht and Keizersgracht, right in the lower part of famous canals. All the main places of interest are within walking distance: Utrechtsestraat, Leidseplein, Rembrandtplein and Museumplein (Rijksmuseum, van Gogh and Stedelijk Museum).

The train station, with trains to Schiphol airport, can be reached easily by tram. The tram stop is a mere 2-minute walk from the building.
A supermarket is only 100 meters away.
There's a Bike rental place in our street, just a few minutes walk.
There are parking spots in our street, but they are horribly expensive (€5,- an hour!) so if you come by car we recommend to park in one of the Park+Ride locations, on the edge of the city.

If you've made you're booking, we'll send detailed instructions with directions to our place.

Due to our study and work schedules, check in time is after 17.00. However, you can always contact us to see if we would be free to welcome you earlier.

Please let us know when you will be arriving!

Check-out is flexible but will depend on other reservations for the day you'll leave. It's no problem to leave your bags with us during the day you leave.

You will receive your own pair of keys.

  • Diederik was an awesome host. He assisted my girlfriend with a massive blister she had on her foot.

    Place was awesome, perfectly located, a 5 minute walk near everywhere.

    The only disadvantage is having the bathroom in the first floor, with the room being on the 4th. Nevertheless, it was clearly stated and was not a major issue.

    Thank you Diederik!

  • This was a nice apartment, with a very comfortable bed with nice pillows. It was in an excellent area for touring the city by walking. Keep in mind that the bathroom is on the first floor and the room is on the 4th floor. That was the only negative thing about staying here.

    Response from Diederik:

    Unfortunately our room turned out not to be available during the days of this reservation. This is the first time we had to cancel a reservation. This is an exception and I don't expect this to happen again. My apologies for the inconvenience caused.

  • What a wonderful room in a great location, and Diederik was also an excellent host. The room was much more private than anticipated, which I'm sure most people will appreciate. Thanks for letting us stay!

  • The room is in a central location and very peaceful, situated on a quiet street. As the other reviews have stated, the bed is incredibly comfortable and the linens are very clean. The climb to the bathroom and kitchen can be a bit arduous but you can count it as cardio and enjoy even more great food in the city!

    Diederik and Tjeerd were great hosts, very accommodating and friendly. Communication was excellent and they always responded to inquiries quickly and kindly. They even arranged a taxi for us because we had to leave very early in the morning. We would definitely recommend the room!
