About This Listing
In the centre of Amsterdam we have a room with a double bed, and extra fold-out bed at your disposal. The guestroom is on the groundfloor, right next to the entrance, and the rest of the house, (where we live), is on the first floor, including our (shared) bathroom. We do have a seperate toilet and a little fridge at your disposal on the ground floor, so you will have enough privacy! The appartment is in a car-free 'park', surrounded by interesting architectural (price winning) buildings, and very near touristic sites like Artis (the Zoo), Tropenmuseum and parks. A real windmill is only 5 minutes away, and a good beer-brewery, with homemade beers is now located in it! Although the neighbourhood self is quiet, there are lots of nice restaurants and little shops with handmade goods just around the corner, as well as a (student run-)cinema and a big playground at the park!
Good public transport connections are within a 5 minute walking distance, and the bus that takes you to the Central station (and from there to Schiphol airport)stops right in front of our house!
There is an internetconnection available, as well as lots of toys and use of bikes, if possible.
Love this apartment, clean and adorable decoration. Zippy and her husband were warm hospitality. They gave us a map and showed very useful tips for going around the city. It's a very good experience for us.
Zippy and Joram are great hosts!! They are really nice and gave us tips and advise about the best things to do in Amsterdam!
The room is really nice, big, clean and with really comfortables beds... Also they prepared and share with us an amazing breakfast every single morning...
Also the Neighborhood is fantastic, just at 20 minutes walking from central station and around 25 min from Dams Square.
If I will return to Amsterdam I will call Zippy again!!
Thank you so much you are perfect hosts and really nice family (both girls are fantastic.
I really had a great time at Zippy's house with my sisters and cousin. The beds are very comfortable, the house is really nice and all her family is sweet ! We felt completly at home ! And it is also well located in the city, it is very easy to go to the center. I absolutly recommend this place !
Zippy is a wonderful host! She has always been responsive and gave us a lot of useful tips about exploring Amsterdam. Her house is cozy and clean, perfect for 2, and there is a windmill nearby:) Thank you so much Zippy for your host and I will surely stay here again if I come to Amsterdam in the future!
My friend and I were here for five nights and had such a great time, it would be impossible for me not to leave a fantabulous review.
First of all, thank you zippy for staying up late and welcoming us into your beautiful home late at night.
Zippy and Joram were great hosts, offering numerous travel tips and zippy even provided maps and lent us her museum card :) she also prepared a great breakfast for us every morning/afternoon (thank you again for accommodating our late night/late morning schedules). Because we woke up so late everyday, we even managed to join zippy and her two adorable daughters for lunch. That was a really great experience.
The house is in a great neighbourhood! Very homely and centrally located. It was a 15-20 mins walk to Amsterdam central and we even went up north to the countryside for a day. (Thanks zippy for the great tip!!) we felt extremely safe here.
I would absolutely recommend zippy's place to any friends or future travelers heading to Amsterdam.
