The Space

This apartment with classic features (67m2, garden 56 m2), is located in the famous 1e Helmersstraat, nearby the Vondelpark (1 minute), Leidsesquare (maximum 5 minutes by tram) and offers you all the comfort you need during a stay in Amsterdam.

The house offers:
-a big living room in the front with a double bed, and a room ensuite which can be separated by a sliding door.
-a kitchen with all the equipment you need
-a spacious hallway
-a bath
-a big garden in the back

In the garden there's enough room to eat, to chill out a little bit.
It's the perfect place to stay with the vibrant city center (Leidseplan, the canals) around the corner, and the tranquil Vondelpark as well. In 20 minutes you're at Schiphol Airport. It's my favourite part of town.
The house has a nice atmosphere, it's furnished in a vintage mixed modern way.

  • As far as the apartment goes, it is in a nice residential area, right by the tram that can take you downtown in minutes. Also an easy walk to the bustling Leidsplein square. The beds were comfortable and the back garden nice. The place isn't super clean and could use a new shower curtain, but overall a comfortable stay

    Olga helped me out when my entire bag got stolen in Vondelpark. She gave me a new key and met me in the park, gave me five euro and was very sympathetic.

    However, as far as hosting went, she didn't go over anything within the apartment, we didn't know where any dishes were or the tricks of the bathroom. There was no going over the neighborhood or tips on where to go in the city, no maps. There wasn't a sheet with directions or instructions and no trash bags in the apartment. We also had a mix up about checking in and out. I waited outside for around 3 hours and while Olga was nice enough to extend our checkout time, she was late and had me leave the key around the (email hidden), which in turn made us late for our next check in.

    I would stay here again, just be sure you've prepared your own list of things to do around town.

  • We stayed at Olga's beautiful apartment for 2 nights. We loved all the photography, and lighting etc, it gave a great sense of what it could be like living in Amsterdam. We had no problems finding it and it was a quick tram ride from the center. Lovely area, and the road was gorgeous.
    The bath was very quirky which we all enjoyed, quite an experience showering in a cupboard!
    We slept very well, the beds were very comfy. Shame we couldn't meet, but Olga was very communicative. WIFI worked perfectly. Would recommend this apartment for anyone who wants to explore Amsterdam.

  • Well located, thanks to the tram you're in the center of A'dam within minutes. Nice host. Pretty appartment, quiet, simply furnished, hot water, good central heating, no beds but palets on the floor, but we slept well. Nice bathtub in an alcove, but no ventilation, same goes for the toilet, so you better know and like each other well if you rent this place. The kitchen is pretty, but definitely needs thorough cleaning.

  • La proprietaria di casa è stata sempre disponibilissima e gentile, la posizione della casa è perfetta, perchè collegata benissimo con la linea 1 che porta ovunque in città, ma anche tranquilla di notte e abbastanza lontana da locali e coffyshop. La casa è carina è accogliente ma purtroppo i loro standard di pulizia sono diversi da quelli italiani. La casa era abbastanza sporca, l'arredamento un po' cambiato rispetto alle foto, affianco al cuscino di uno dei letti c'è la centralina del wi-fi che non è proprio il massimo della salute. L'unica cosa pulita erano asciugamani e federe dei cuscini nonostante avessi chiesto in anticipo se dovevo portare le lenzuola e mi avesse assicurato di no, infatti le lenzuola erano palesemente usate e sporche ma immagino che per loro non sia un problema dormire in lenzuola già usate da altri, per me e la mia ragazza invece si. Stesso discorso vale per i bagni, non certo sporchi come bagni pubblici intendiamoci, ma nemmeno erano puliti, la polvere era su tutte le cose da bagno. Non mensiono la solita mancanza di bidet perchè com'è noto all'estero pochi lo usano. Insomma se volete andare con un gruppo di amici e siete disposti a qualche compromesso la casa e PERFETTA per disposizione, tranquillità e comodità ma se dovete andare con la fidanzata o se siete allergici alla polvere come me lo sconsiglio.

  • Olga was very communicative and was able to get us into her place very last minute. She made sure everything was OK once we arrived in Amsterdam. Her place is easily accessible with the tram (or on foot) to the hotspots in the city center. Thank you Olga!!

  • Olga was a great host and the apartment was fantastic! The outdoor garden was my favorite part! It pretty much comes with everything you need including and automatic espresso maker (which I used twice a day!). All the facilities were clean and worked great. I really didn't have a problem while I was staying at her place.

About
Hi, I'm Olga and born in 1985. I'm a writer and I live in Amsterdam. I love to cook (Italian), to read (Albert Camus, Jean-Paul Sartre, Michel Houellebecq, Louis-Ferdinand Celine, Arnon Grunberg, Remco Campert, Vladimir Nabokov, Willem Frederik Hermans), to listen to music (from Aphex Twin to The Beatles to Jacques Brel to Daft Punk to Nina Simone and back..) to go to the movies (Steve McQueen, Francois Ozon, Susanne Bier..) I like to travel trough Europe, haven't been in The States yet but I'd love to. I want to offer my apartment to nice people who will enjoy this place and area as much as I do.
