9 streets district (10 min)
West side of the center.
Nearby are trams and buses.
You have the apartment all to yourself.
Ideal for couple or alone travellers.
No pets allowed
Towels and bedsheets included

I absolutely love my house, I just moved in there last year, after it was fully renovated. I have a very busy job, I travel a lot and airbnb is the perfect solution for me to make sure other people can enjoy my house and i can travel as I want.

It's perfect for 2 people but with 3 it is possible then 1 can sleep in the livingroom. Also my neighbour upstairs has the same house and she is also on airbnb (its called cozy apartment center west on airbnb) so you can also come with 2 couples and rent 2 places in the same building!

If you come from Schiphol Airport you take the train to central station and then take the tram to my house, its only 10 minutes away from central station.

Its really really central, unique neighbourhood with the oldest bars and buildings. you will absolutely love it, i have a little book here, written it myself, with all the good bars, restaurants, hotspots around here so you wont be bored.

  • Thank you Nina for your help, the notebook with all the tips, was very helpful, you've got a beautiful apartment, and in very good location, Shmulik

  • The apartment is very charming, cozy, comfortable and clean (as you can see in the pictures) - just homelike. We met Nina at our arrival joining us for a drink at (email hidden) and meat bar 10 meters down the street. The communication for our booking in advance was very friendly and fast and Nina "live" was also very likeable, funny and uncomplicated. Ten Katestraat Markt wakes you up early in the morning, but that didn't bother us too much as we loved the very lively, cultural and - most important for us food-nerds - culinary variety right in front of the house. Speaking of culinary -- there's also the great Spaghetteria at Ten Katestraat: so very original and delicious pasta and vino....and many more very good places in walking distance where you can knock yourself out with coffee (try "Lot 61 coffee roasters"), cakes, sandwiches, soups...
    We enjoyed staying in this part of the city that is not too crowded with tourists and still very central to parks, canals and all the hot spots. We also loved Ninas vinyl-collection and the personal touch of her apartment. It was like staying at a very good friends house. For all that we highly recommend this awesome apartment! Anja + Halil

  • Nina's apartment is lovely! It is very creatively decorated, clean and has everything you need. The market is on the same street, so might be difficult to sleep, but they don't start too early. Area is amazing, full of nice cafes, boulangeries, close to the park.
    Nina was flexible with the time of arrival. She couldn't be there, but she passed the keys so there were no problem.
    I would definitely recommend Nina's place for your stay in Amsterdam!

  • Nina's apartment is lovely - nicely decorated & very close to the city Centre. Everything is in walking distance, we only used public transport when we arrived at and left the apartment with our bags. The market in front of the house makes sleeping in in the morning a bit difficult but who goes to Amsterdam to sleep all the time?! ;)

    Nina is a great host who responds to every question immediately and offers great tips in the neighbourhood & the city - thanks, Nina!

    I definitely recommend this Apartment!

  • Fijn appartement, meer dan genoeg ruimte voor een aangenaam verblijf! Nette badkamer, bed, keuken en indien gewenst mogelijkheden om zelf te koken. Ook zeer bereikbaar vanuit het centraal station (vlakbij een tramhalte) en sommige toeristische bezienswaardigheden (de Jordaanwijk) zijn ook te voet goed te doen. Enig minpuntje: het opzetten van de markt in de straat is 's ochtends wel hoorbaar vanuit de slaapkamer, als je dat niet verdraagt zijn oordopjes een must.

  • We had an incredible time at Nina's apartment, very cosy, clean, central... all one could wish for.
    Thanks for an amazing stay!

  • Nina's apartment was neat, homey and very convenient! It was so easy to get around town either by walking to nearby neighborhoods or just hopping on the tram down the block. There were no surprises and at the end of a long trip through Europe -- staying at Nina's apartment was a welcome break from B&Bs and hotels. Just be aware, there's a market outside that is great for buying fresh foods, but it can be a little loud if you are a light sleeper.

    Thanks so much again Nina, we had a blast!

  • We really liked Nina's apartment! He's clean and very well equipped. The decoration is like the photos, original and personal. The only problem was the noise from the market at the bottom of the apartment every morning, but as we got up early to enjoy the city, finally it did not bother us more than that... Thank you Nina!

  • Nina's place was perfect! Great location, clean apartment... Generally excellent! The market was a bit noisy, but the amazing fresh produce and delicious cheese waiting literally on the doorstep made up for any disturbance!! Nina was very easy to contact and went above and beyond our expectations as an airbnb host. We'll be back!

  • We had a great time in Ninas lovely apartment! It is cosy and personal and makes a perfect stay for two. All contact with Nina was quick and easy and we felt totally confortable staying at her place - almost like staying at a great friend who you have known for a long time. We warmly recommend you to stay at Ninas when travelling to Amsterdam!
