This former artist's studio takes up the third (and top) floor of my 17th century built Amsterdam bell gable house.

The Space

The studio consists of the top floor (=2nd) of my Amsterdam 17th century clock gable house.

It has the following features:

- two flights of stairs to get there, although for Amsterdam standards not very steep or long,
they are a bit narrow and winding..!!
- 34m2
- Possibility to store luggage downstairs when arriving early or leaving late.
- Bathroom with shower, wash basin and toilet.
- Hair dryer
- Bed - and bathroom linen.
- Fridge and microwave combi oven.
- Nespresso (machine and capsules) and tea included.
- King size bed: 200 x 180 cm
- Comfy reading chairs at a large window overlooking the typical Amsterdam street
- TV / DVD Player
- Stereo with iPod Dock
- Wifi (free)
- Central location, all major attractions are a short walk away.
- Gay friendly

The place is very warm and personal, and perfectly suited for a single traveler or couple to retreat as well as to discover Amsterdam. Many museums around the corner, the famous Van Gogh - , the Rijksmuseum and the Hermitage. the Waterlooplein flee- and Albert Cuyp street markets,the Pijp,
bustling Rembrandtsquare, Concertgebouw and National Opera, Reguliersdwarsstraat, cinema's, choice of (international) restaurants. Just stroll the bohemian Utrechtsestraat, explore its many design boutiques and restaurants, or rent a bike to other highlights, such as De Jordaan, Anne Frank, designer label PC Hooftstraat, zoo Artis, canals and cruise terminal,

The house is on the corner with the 7 bridges, you can see the first bridge from the studio.

  • We had such a great stay in Johan's apartment. Location was really handy to everything and it is so beautifully decorated. Johan really makes sure to cover the little things travelers like to have when staying. The coffee machine was a god send to us! ;) only super minor comment may be that the lighting is quite dark and for a girl trying to get ready was a little challenging but no biggie. Would definitely recommend this place to others. Bit of a mission getting bags down the super narrow stairs but Johan kindly helped bus on the way up.

  • Johan's Flat has been the best Airbnb so far. The location is great and it is furnished and decorated with a lot of taste. We loved it and felt immediately at home. Johan is a very nice and considerate host. We highly recommend the place.

  • Everything about this studio is perfect! The location, the size, the charm. It's obvious that Johan cares deeply about this space.

  • Absolutely wonderful from start to finish! We didn't meet Johan but he was perfect at communicating before, during and after our trip. Erica (his assistant) met us upon arrival and she was perfect. His place is clean, beautifully decorated and in a wonderful neighborhood close to everything. We couldn't have asked for anything better - absolute perfection!

  • My parents had a lovely stay. Johan was EXTREMELY communicative, accommodating, and kind!

    June 2014
  • Staying at Johan's was perfect! Can recommend it to everyone, we will definitely stay there again when coming back to Amsterdam.

  • My husband and I stayed at Johan's for the first week of June 2014.

    Johan was quick to be in touch before we arrived and answer any questions we had. As this was our first Airbnb stay, this went a long way towards making us feel comfortable.

    The flat looks exactly like the photos and is very comfortable and cozy. We had no concerns about our stay. The only people we would warn away from staying here would be people who have problems climbing steep steps. Otherwise the place is ideal.

    Johan was very thoughtful in providing us a couple of Heinkens, pods for espresso and some fresh fruit. It's little things like that which make his place a delight to stay.

    The 2 major pluses about the flat is the location and the quiet. Other than taking a train out of town on a short day trip, we never needed to take transit anywhere. Almost anything you want to see is within walking distance and we walked a lot. At night we couldn't imagine a quieter neighbourhood in a major city. You will sleep well in the comfy bed.

    In short, we highly recommend this place to stay in Amsterdam and we will remember Johan's hospitality for many years to come.

  • That was a great stay at Johans appartment. Everthing was perfect. Johan is a very warm and helpfull host. The appartment is better than a 4* hotel. Nice decorated with a very comfortable bed. It's located in a walking distance to all points of interest. Overall highly recommended!

  • We very liked staying in John's apartment. The location of the apartment is not far from many of sights of Amsterdam. The decor is very stylish and exactly as described on the internet.
    Johan is a very friendly, helpful host. He is not pushy, but if you need him he's there. Johan speaks very good German. We very can recommend his apartment.
