My apartment is only 15 minutes from the centre of Amsterdam. A bus stops near my flat so you can travel from Central Station to the apartment in a very short period of time. It's an area surrounded by water, with beautiful architecture. The apartment has a Wifi connection. There are several gyms nearby as well as a park where you can do your daily joging. It is possible to walk from the center to my apartment and this will take you about a nice two hours walk...There are some cafe's and very good take out possiblities.
The apartement has a fantastic view and a great balcony to enjoy it. Giving that you are nearby the center of the City you can enjoy some of the city's most finest museums, clubs shopping area that will take over a day to see and enjoy them alll. Take a boat ride in the city center and see all the canals in Amsterdam or bike your way through the city.
