About This Listing
A traditional Dutch architectural apartment on the fourth floor. Four typical Amsterdam, steep and narrow flights lead you to a 50 square meter one bedroom apartment. It has a large living room with an open kitchen, a large bathroom with a bath tub. A roof terrace with an amazing view. The apartment is equipped with everything you need during your stay.
It is only a five minutes walk from Amsterdam Central Station. You are in a walking distance to almost all the attractions in the city. Behind the apartment you can rent yourself a bike if you would like to tour around the city. Right outside your door you'll find the Haarlemmerstraat, chosen as most attractive shoppingstreet in Amsterdam in 2012. Besides a lot of nice little boutiques, there are many restaurants and bars, most of them with outdoor seeting. Just off of Haarlemmerstraat is the Jordaan, worldfamous and very old neighbourhood with beautiful hidden public gardens, narrow, winding canals and sunny squares with local bars. On Saturday you can go to the Noordermarkt, an organic market popular with both tourists and locals.
On the bicycle you can bike around canals and the Negen straten right in the city center. My home is very colorful and over 20 of my guest will agree that they are ideally situated.
I had a great stay at Ingeborg's apartment over the weekend of King's Day 2015. The location of the apartment couldn't be any better, just a short 10 min walk from Centraal Station and dead center so everything is easily accessible by foot.
The apartment itself has a very nice and friendly vibe, I instantly felt at home. Ingeborg provided everything from fresh towels, basic toiletries, bed linen etc and even some nice cold beers in the fridge.
I cannot recommend this apartment enough and will probably book it again for my next stay in Amsterdam.
a lovely and quaint little flat in a superb location! the host very accommodating and caring. top marks, thank you!
My mother and I had a wonderful time in Ingeborg's house.
We can say that she is a very kind person and helped us a lot!
Her house is very clear and cozy!
Thanks a lot!
Everything was completely perfect, we couldn't possibly be happier.
The apartment was exactly as described, if not better. It was so light, spacious and colourful - so if this is your thing (as it is ours) then book this place. The vibe suited my partner and I superbly; we are quite the nomads so travel extensively most of the time and it was so wonderful to to finally find accomodation in Europe that encompasses the free spirited and personailised style we have loved so much all over the World. (It was an added bonus to be able to flick through some of the travel books on the shelf, reminisicng or planning our next adventure - very inspiring!). So if you are dick to death of sterile, unimaginative and dull Hotel Rooms I would seriously recommend this space - it is the total opposite - beautiful, full of character and positive energy.
On top of this the location is spot on - Central to everything, and in fact after exploring the City our favourite places actually were on this road (the Coffee Shops and restaurants there offer a much more relaxed vibe, slightly different crowd (by this I simply mean less teens and stags) and music that doesn't make you want to leave each stop immediately!)
Ingeborg left everything we needed in the apartment (plus some extra sweet treats & wine), so we found ourselves wanting after nothing at all. Apartment is well equipt, showers good, heating on for just a few hours has the place at perfect temperature but when Sunny you don't need it at all (and this was in April), roof terrace is wonderful if the sun is out, we watched the sunset over the City from here and it was beautiful. If you are seriously unfit, have a lot of luggage or are just lazy, the 4 flights to the apartment could be an issue, but for us this was totally fine, if not a bonus after munching so many waffles before climbing them!
We felt so happy, looked after and content staying here and we can't thank Ingeborg enough - it literally felt as though we had finally made it home after a very long time. We are already talking about coming over again in the Summer and there is literally no where else we would stay when we do. Thank you so much!
I stayed at Ingeborg's apartment for one month. Ingeborg was such a wonderful host! She was very welcoming, and greeted me with beer, and a meal upon my arrival. When my girlfriend arrived two weeks later, she recommended a nearby yoga studio and helped her find medicine for her cold. She made sure that we were comfortable and was very helpful (and took a lot of her time) to give me tips about getting settled in the city. The apartment was clean and had everything you could possibly need for a great stay in Amsterdam. The rooftop terrace also has breathtaking views. Finally, I cannot forget to mention that the location of the apartment is perfect. It is in the heart of the city, close by to several different grocery stores, a wonderful farmer's market on Saturdays (Noordermarkt), and the Central Station. My girlfriend and I felt very at home there during our stay and we cannot recommend the apartment, or Ingeborg enough! :-)
Ingeborg's flat is amazing both in terms of design and location. This was our second time staying there and it is by far the best place to stay in Amsterdam!
