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
Bob was very friendly and the appartement was perfect for us! Perfect location, you have everything you need and Bob is always there to answer questions! If we return to Amsterdam we will rent the appartement again!
The host was perfect,available and received us even though our flight was quite late at night.
He explained where we were, had prepared a booklet on bike rentals, restaurants, etc... In the area and made it easy for us.
Although there is a kitchen, it is not really set up for that. The location invites you to get a quick bite to eat anywhere.
The location was excellent!
The house is perfect to explore amsterdam and exactly as advertised. The space is big and comfortable, really close to dam square and where the action happens, but far enough so you don't have noise all the time and don't need to go through pee and vomit in the morning. The area has everything you need including restaurants and supermarkets close by. The kitchen could be improved a bit, but we didn't use it anyway.
Bob's loft in Spui square met all our expectations. There were stairs but that's what you get with a loft. It was cosy and a brilliant location ( just at the tram stop for 3 tram lines). Lots of bars and restaurants in the local area, and a supermarket just up the road.
Bob was a great help with any questions and solved a problem we had. He works nearby so is easily available.
His flat was perfect for us. It´s a lovely place perfect for short weekend. And bob was really nice, he waited for one hour. Do not hesited to book this flat ;-). Very well located and cheap.
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.
