A light top floor open space apartment in a building that used to be a film studio. Directly in the hearth of Amsterdam at Spui Square with a view to the Begijnhof Chapel, Queen Beatrix' Royal Palace, the art market, all from the front windows. On one end of the loft is a kingsize bed. The living area sofa can be converted into a double bed. The apartment has a large bath room with shower, toilet, washing machine (!), a refrigerator and a kitchen pantry for preparing basic meals/breakfast. Free wi-fi.
The location is just the best you can find with only a few steps to the main shopping streets, 5 minutes from the red-light-district, the middle of Amsterdam's gay area, the Jordaan and the canal-belt and only 3 minutes from Dam Square. From Schiphol, a train-and-tram ride takes you to the front door.
The apartment contains:
* tv with media box incl 750 TV channels
* free wifi internet
* water cooker
* towels, linnen
* washing machine
* 1 kingsize bed + 1 sofa-convertable-into-bed
The price includes cleaning. As a big fan of b&b's I never like cleaning fees, especially if you stay only one night. I offer to refund this 15 EUR if guests prefer to do their own end-cleaning.
Please communicate arrival time as somebody needs to open the door for you and explain all. If arrival time is not met, unclear or not confirmed, the host holds the right to cancel the contract with no refund.
For this rental a security deposit is requested that is held by AirBnB. This deposit is only for the case of guests deliberately demolishing the interior. But I expect you to treat my apartments like its yours.
The host keeps the right to deny reservations. The building is more than 100 years old, so is some of the furniture, everything is made of wood. A group of 4 guys under 24 will, for example, not be allowed.
I don't like cleaning fee's myself, especially if i stay only one night: so guest can choose to clean the apartment by themselves before departure. This needs to be confirmed at time of reservation. In this case, the cleaning fee is deducted from the price. If cleaning has however not been done (in an acceptable manner), this fee will be deducted from the security deposit or needs to be paid at departure.
And i wish you will enjoy my place and feel at home
like it's yours
This flat is full of character in a fantastic location. You will leave feeling you have really experienced Amsterdam rather than staying somewhere anonymous. We all have different desires and expectations and this apartment fully met mine. HOWEVER, it will not suit you if you have visions of a luxurious bathroom and kitchen. In fact then all combined as one narrow room with kettle, fridge and basic utensils. The shower is basic and it takes awhile to balance the hot and cold taps. Overall for me and many others it is a wonderful choice and I would definitely stay there again.
Wonderful Place in the heart of Amsterdam! Bob was a fantastic host and very accommodating. We would stay here again in a flash!
Bob was extremely welcoming to my friends and I. Greeted with a bottle of white wine, we at once felt comfortable in this lovely loft in the perfect location in Amsterdam! Bob also supplied an extremely useful booklet of restaurants, things to do etc. Fantastic if it's your first time to Amsterdam. Would most definitely stay again, thank you Bob!
Bob was very helpful and polite. The communication prior to our arrival was excellent.
The apartment is situated perfectly very central in Amsterdam, the toilet fully functional and the bathdroom equipped with fresh towels, toilet paper and everything needed. There was a bottle of white whine when we arrived which was also very nice of him.
However, the furniture are a bit old and we had a living mouse in the sofa, when we had to sleep the first night. Never the less, Bob was flexible, sweet and a fine host.
Bob was very friendly and showed us around the loft explaining everything when we arrived. The Loft was lovely and clean, and is perfect location being so central, 10 minute walk to anything you could need. He was very helpful if we had any questions during our stay and even left an information pack with advice for the best restaurants and places to go. Overall great experience! Thanks!
Great host, great apartment and great location. My description is this. When we arrived the apartment, Bob welcomed with his smiley face and he helped us very much. The apartment location is perfect and its historical past impressed us. Lastly, the most important factor of aparment is, behind the tram stop. Because the tram make easy our transportation. I recommend everyone to stay here. Thank you Bob for your hospitality and everything. I hope we will meet again.
Bob was a friendly and helpful host. The apartment was well appointed and had every thing needed for my stay. The location is outstanding and I'd certainly stay again.
