This 17th century (1690) monument building is the perfect place to experience how people live in Amsterdam. Traditional building with many historic features and located in the heart of the city.
5 minutes walk from Central Station and to Dam Square.
A holiday apartment like no other. (Sleeps 4 people - 1 x bouble bed & 1 x double sofa bed)
This beautiful holiday apartment on the second floor of a protected monument building in the heart of Amsterdam is the perfect location for a city break.
Just a 5 minute walk from Amsterdam central train station, 5 minutes to ‘Dam Square and within minutes of a hoard of historical buildings, canals, bridges and of course the infamous red light district and coffee shops.
The apartment is also situated on the edge of the "Nine Streets" shopping area which straddle the Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht in Amsterdam's central canal ring. The streets are full of original and diverse stores. Look for "De 9 Straatjes" on the street signs and pick up a district shopping map from any of the charming retailers.
It’s possible to visit all the sights of Amsterdam by foot from our apartment but if you’re more adventurous and want to get further out of town you can simply hop on a tram. You’ll find all the tram stops at central station.
**** PLEASE NOTE ****
*The stairs are narrow and steep (as is the way in Amsterdam). Some guests might need help carrying large suitcases up to the apartment which is on the 2nd floor.
* Maximum occupancy is for 4 people. One double bed and one double sofabed. Perfect for 2 people and ok if you're 4 people.
* If you smoke, please open a window.
You have full access to the entire apartment. The stairway is shared with neighbours.
Interaction with Guests
We'll check you in and try to answer any questions. You can always call us if you need advice during your visit.
The area is very central, in fact you can't really get any more central than this.
There are many hiostoric buildings, plenty of bars and restaurants as well as the famous coffee shops and red light district.
There's somethign for everyone.
Getting around is SO easy. there are trams, underground and overground railways all within 5 minutes of the front door.
Parking is expensive on the street, but it is possible. I'd advise parking out of town (where it's cheaper) and getting a tram in to the centre. It's really up to you :)
Other Things to Note
Be aware that the stairway up to the apartment is very steep and narrow. This is typical of Amsterdam houses. It might be difficult if you have mobility issues or you have babies with pushchairs and so on.
Check in/out times are clear (2pm check in / 12 (midday) check-out).
After 20:00 (8pm) there is a late check-in fee of €25.
Check-out's are usually a case of leaving the keys on the table and pulling the door behind you.
All we ask is that you don't destroy any property, you make sure doors are locked, you leave the place tidy and that you respect the neighbours. Simple really :)
Everything was perfect. Al showed us the place and also gave us some tips for our visit. The place is really nice and the location is perfect. Close to everything! Very good experience
We had a very good reception.
The apartment is well located to visit Amsterdam, near central station train, near near trolley station.
You have near the apartement, restaurant, italian and indian takeaway.
Thank you to AI.
The Al's apartment is very cozy and useful, located in one of the best area to enjoy the city. It was my third time in Amsterdam, and I can say for sure that this apartment is the best accomodation that I've ever found. Even if we met just for few time, I can say that Al is a very kind and helpful person.
Certainly I recommend it!
Great apartment right in the city center. Just a short walk to all the main attractions, with great cafes down the street. The host met us right at the train station and walked us right to the room, which was very helpful.
We were very happy with this central apartment with close to everything. He didn't joke about the small stairway entry =)
Due to it's central location it was a little bit noisy through the night but it should be expected. All in all it was a very nice apartment with all amenities. Really would recommend it!
Wow what a place and I fantastic host. Stress free checking in, perfect location and amazing apartment. I will be staying here again for sure. Made my trip to Amsterdam the best one yet! Thank you for you hospitality Al. See you very soon x
Al ist ein sehr netter und zuvorkommender Gastgeber. Wir haben zu 4 in seiner Wohnung ein Wochenende in Amsterdam verbracht und waren schon am ersten Tag überwältigt. Schon bei der Anreise hat uns Al sämtliche Insidertipps verraten, sollten wir etwas brauchen, wäre er immer für uns erreichbar. Weiter so! Wir waren sehr zufrieden!
Happy to welcome you and to help you find what you're looking for.

When we travel, we really appreciate good accommodation and having good communication around checking in and arrival times. We aim to provide our guests with the same.
