The Space

2-bedroom apartment that can host up to 4 people in the artistic center of Amsterdam! Ideal for groups and families. Fully equipped, including a superb kitchen, cosy living room, roof terrace, modern bathroom, free cable TV and free and fast wireless internet. There are two private bedrooms with 2 single beds each. The beds can be moved together or apart.

This private B&B apartment is centrally located 5 minutes away from the Rijksmuseum, in the 'Spiegelkwartier’. This is a neighborhood loved for its many art and antique galleries, monumental houses and romantic canals. The apartment is a 10 minute tram ride away from central station. By taxi or public transport it takes about 30-45 minutes from the apartment to Schiphol Airport.

Please note that we ask all guests to fill in their profile before we are able to confirm a reservation. Thanks!

Please also note that the stairways are VERY steep. Most people find this entertaining and authentic - but if you have trouble walking, this is not the right place for you.

More info about the location: countless cultural events, museums, cafes and gourmet dining venues - such as the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh museum, or Leidseplein - are within walking distance. Mike’s Bike Tours around the corner will allow you to start exploring this amazing city immediately.

  • Flat is very comfortable and authentic. The location provides quick access to various places of interest. Terrace on the roof is a fine addition to the busy day in Amsterdam. The host was very friendly and informative. The next time we arrive to Amsterdam Vera will be the host of our choice.

  • Wonderful apartment! We were three girls and had more space than we could ask for.
    The rooms are lovely, the whole apartment has a homey feel to it, the roof terrace was incredible to have, and the location is great.
    We were planning on renting bikes to get to the places that were further away but we ended up not needing them and just walked everywhere!

    Vera was a perfect host, reachable and very helpful.
    I recommend this place 100%- thanks for everything!

  • The location of Vera's apartment is perfect, it couldn't be better for easy access to all the main museums and attractions. Vera mentions in her description that the stairs are steep, and she's not joking, however I understand that this is not unusual in Amsterdam and when you enter the flat the steep stairs are soon forgotten. The accommodation was clean and tidy, well appointed and comfortable with the added benefit of a large decked sun terrace on the roof which we used on a number of occasions for a bottle of wine or beer. We used "Mikes bikes" country tour just around the corner, they were very good and reasonable price. The Red restaurant at the end of the street was fantastic value and beautiful food. As no-one was arriving on the day we checked out Vera was kind enough to allow us to keep the apartment until 4pm which we found very helpful.

  • Definitively a perfekt place to stay in Amsterdam: a lovely apartment, central and in a nice neighborhood, very well equipped, comfortable beds!
    Vera gave us a very useful documentation contending very good tips (we had a great evening at a lovely restaurant nearby, called 'pasta e basta'!), and she was always available for any questions.
    The roof terrace is a really beautiful place to relaxe!
    The only small demerit: food odors from the deli in the ground floor!

    Response from Vera:

    thank you Jacqueline for pointing out the food odours - they were indeed way too strong! The shop downstairs has now substantially upgraded their ventilation system and food odours are no longer an issue.

  • Vera was a very nice, warm and welcoming host to two of our dancers! They really enjoyed their stay in the apartment! The place is very convenient, close to everything in the city yet quiet at night. The beds were very comfortable and it is easy to pull the beds apart if you want to sleep with more people in one room.

  • We had a lovely time in Amsterdam at Vera's flat. It was very central, and easy to get to where we wanted to go, but it was also quiet. It was a steep climb up, but we got used to it. Both bedrooms were lovely, and the kitchen was adequate for a city break.
