About This Listing
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.
The separate room is located on the fourth floor of the building and part of our apartment on the first floor. It's separated by a staircase with three steep flights of stairs and therefore not recommend for people with limited mobility! Other apartments are on the second and third floor, where our neighbors live.
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 can accommodate maximum 2 guests.
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.
The bathroom, toilet, kitchen and balcony of my apartment, all located on the first floor, are shared with me.
You can access the apartment at anytime.

Diederik welcomed us warmly. The room was exactly as described. The bed was especially comfortable, and Diederik supplied a hair dryer, small refrigerator, heater--even an umbrella! He answered all our questions and helped us with plans. The location was excellent-- close to everything--and our legs feel so much stronger as a result of doing the stairs! The room was exceptionally quiet, even on King's Day. Everything was spotlessly clean.
Diederik was a great host. He responds to emails very quickly and is there to answer questions on places to go. His house is in a very convenient location. I was able to walk everywhere!
Diederik was a great host. I arrived very late at night and he made it extremely easy. The room was lovely, nice and clean. It's in a great location! If go back to Amsterdam I will definitely try to stay there again.
Diederik is an awesome host and the room is everything one can whish for.
I was looking for a nice, quiet and central place and this room was everything I needed. It was clean, comfortable and in one of the best locations one can hope for.
Diederik was super nice and helpful and we had a nice dinner one evening.
All in all it was a very pleasant stay and I can recommend the room and Diederik as host to anyone who is looking for a nice and central stay in Amsterdam.
Diederik was very kind, he gave us some information about places to visit and he was always willing to help us in everything we need. The room is OK well located, very comfortable it was clean and tidy, the only thing is that the bathroom is 3 floors downstairs.
