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.
* 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 (11am check out - 2pm check in).
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 :)
Super séjour chez Al , qui nous à très bien accueilli .

Posizione perfetta la consiglio
The host was really sympathic. The place was great. Enough place for 2-4 people :) ! And the mutual trust was good :) ! The streets are not too noosy and we could park our bike not too far :) ! I will recommand this place ;D !
Al's apartment is perfect for stay in Amsterdam, it's about 5 mins from everywhere, I like the place so much :) .
Al is so nice and next time we want to be in the King's boat :) ,,,
Excellent host and apartment. My work takes me to Amsterdam for a month each summer. I stayed in Aled's apartment for the first time last year and enjoyed my stay so much that I returned again this year. Aled is gracious, accommodating, and responsive. His apartment is clean and appointed with everything necessary for a comfortable stay. Its location is perfect... the Dam, Red Light District, 9 Streets, Anne Frank House, and Central Station are all within easy walking distance. There's a tram stop with multiple lines about a minute's walk away. I couldn't have been more pleased and hope to rent Aled's apartment for many more summers.
Al es un excelente anfitrión, estuvo en contacto con nosotros siempre, y nos estaba esperando en el departamento para explicarnos todo lo necesario. El departamento está perfectamente ubicado, en pleno centro de la ciudad. El acceso es complicado, por la escalera angosta y empinada, pero es lo típico de estos vecindarios. Es un detalle a tener en cuenta para personas mayores o con dificultades. Departamento muy luminoso y cómodo, súper recomendable
Al's apartment is a Great place to stay in Amsterdam. Perfect location. 5-7 min from everywhere.
It's a simple apartment but that's really all you need.
Highly recommend Al's place!!!
