About this listing
A home away from home
Great location(everyone keeps on telling me)
STEAP characteristic stairs (not for people who hate stairs or have troubles with legs or feet/ do not walk well)
What I offer: great location, comfortable bed, private & clean home.
Be careful for:
The stairs are really steep
On the pictures you see one of the two studios I rent out in the same building. If you are looking for a place for 4 people this could also be ideal! This studio is located on the second floor of the building. It is right in the middle of the center of Amsterdam. Just around the corner of the lively part of Amsterdam. Nearby everything in town: museums, shops, clubs, bars and restaurants. Public transport is really around the corner. The central station is 15 minutes walking distance and by tram it will only take you 5 minutes (tram 1, 2 and 5). The famous/oldest café in Amsterdam is right in front.
What's in the private studio?:
•Comfortable double bed
•Kitchenette with fridge, tea cooker, Nespresso machine
•Private shower and toilet
•Windows are double, which keeps out the most of the noice
•Free use of washing machine and dryer
On walking distance of:
•The Central Station
•The Van Gogh Museum
•The Anne Frank House
•The Stedelijk museum
•The Rembrandts Plein
•The shopping streets: Kalverstraat, Leidsestraat or the “Negen Straatjes”
Breakfast can be served upon request for €15 per person per day.
USP: Great location, beautiful building, great bed, clean room and a host that does everything in her power to let her guests leave satisfied and experience a home away from home in Amsterdam. Hoping to exceed your expectations.
Please be aware it is possible that you are booked in my other studio as they are both so alike. This depends on my other bookings, but I will try my best to let you in the studio you prefer of course!
You have your own room with everything you need. You can use my washing mashine and dryer and in that same closset there is a hair dryer or an ironer.
Interaction with Guests
As I live in the same building, so normally I am around to help out with everything you need. You will have your own studio with your own bath room though, so all the privacy you need.
My home is in the best neighboorhood. Everything is closeby and it feels like a small village in the city ring. The best thing to do is just walk around town(the best and quieter on a Sunday morning). For sure also take a boat tour as Amsterdam is really beautifull from the canals.
It is pretty easy to rent a bike as every Dutch person living in Amsterdam uses one. Also trams are pretty easy to use, but as you are closeby everthing I would prefer walking as then you can see everything our city has to offer better.
Please do not smoke(cleaning of curtains will cost €150). Pets are great, but hygienical reasons they are not allowed in my home.
Great place and checkin was easy. Right in the heart of Amsterdam. The Sonos system was a great addition. Very good!
Great communication with host. Location cant be beat and a really nice bed with great linens after a long day of site seeing. Highly recommended!
Monique was a great and friendly host. Greeted us at apartment and took time to show us a map of city and sites to see. Also very informative website and available to answer questions during our stay. Studio is just as described in a central location close to shops, bars restaurants etc. We enjoyed
Sehr schönes und gemütliches Zimmer, eine tolle Location im ruhigen aber zentralen Stadtteil Spui. Die Gastgeberin war in okay. Obwohl sie wusste, dass wir erst am Abend ankommen und gerade mal 25 Minuten zu spät waren, war sie sehr ungeduldig und genervt. Und das obwohl sie im gleichen Haus wohnt. Die Fotos haben auch nicht ganz mit dem Zimmer übereingestimmt, da auf dem Foto des Badezimmers eine Badewanne zu sehen war und ich das Zimmer aufgrund der Badewanne gebucht hatte, weil sich mein Freund eine Woche zuvor den Arm gebrochen hatte und duschen deshalb sehr schwierig war. Dort angekommen erklärte sie uns, dass das ein Foto von ihrem eigenen Apartment sei.
It was amazing vacation for us in Amsterdam defiantly thanks to lovely Monique and her truly (as described and shown) great studio! clean, best bed ever, excellent shower, perfect location and well decorated. Monique was available any time, willing to help and recommend with many tips and let us feel at home.
We would definitely recommend this place to anyone (who can climb steps as she mentions)
Thank you Monique for everything :))
I spent 2 nights here and loved it. It's very clean and airy. Comfy bed. Felt like a nice little home in the city.
The location really is great and convenient.
Monique was very friendly and responsive.
Beware of the steps, they're steep! (As said in the listing)
The room is off of a fairly busy street. Not a ton of traffic, but mostly cafes/bars. So there might be some street noise until about midnight? I didn't mind because I'm a sound sleeper and I live in NYC.
It was already my second time at Monique's apartment and it was gorgeous again. She's very lovely and kind!
Everthing's clean and comfy. It feels like my home in Amsterdam and I will come back one day :)

About the Host, Monique
My passion is traveling, service and how the mind works. As a Life coach and owner of my B&B a get to do a little of everything I like:) I run my B&B at the Spuistraat with dedication. I love working hard, studying new things and enjoy life. Amsterdam is the best city to live in. I have been in Argentina, Chili, Peru, Australia, Indonesia and my next trip most probably be New York or Canada.
Further more I love horse riding, yoga & diving(last one not in Holland!;)).
Of course I am glad to answer your questions and I am looking forward to meeting you soon!
