About this listing
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 a hospitable and helpful host and the apartment was clean, nice and spacious as described. The area was very convenient and nice, it made the trip to Amsterdam even better. No complaints. Thanks bob!
Lovely loft in terrific spot in Amsterdam.
Quite a few steep steps to climb to get in but thats pretty standard in Amsterdam! The loft has quite a bit of space and nice large windows that open right up!
Location was great, very close to Dam square and lots of nicer cafes and laneways close by
I spent 4days in Bob' flat with my sisters and we really appreciate our journey. The localization is perfect (only few minutes from the central station by foot) and the decoration is lovely. For sure the next time I'll back here.
L'accoglienza di Bob è stata puntuale, e l'appartamento è abbastanza fedele alle foto pubblicate. Il quartiere è molto centrale e comodo per gli spostamenti (fermata del tram proprio sotto casa) ed inoltre lì vicino ci sono tanti locali, ristoranti, e negozi.
Very nice apartment in an amazing location to get anywhere. Bob was accommodating and helpful, would definitely stay here again
Staying at Bob's place was a breeze! Perfectly located, tram station out front, and a unique space all in one. Dealing with Bob and team was also a very positive experience - clear instructions and same day responses.
The apartment itself is great. I stayed here with two other friends and we fit pretty well. Although I would probably recommend this place for couples since the only segmented room is the washroom. There isn't really a kitchen to cook food on, but that really doesn't matter! You'll (hopefully) be out all day.
It should be noted that there is a bit of a stair climb up the to the apartment. If you have mobility issues then place, much like the rest of Amsterdam, isn't likely for you.
Overall, I would very highly rate my experience and would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants an authentic Amsterdam lifestyle.
The Apartment is perfectly located and you can reach everything by walking. There is a new Sofa and carpet and it all look a little bit freshed up :) Smoking is not allowed in the Apartment anymore!
All in all i would definitely stay there again :)
