Private bedroom in an apartment right in the center of Amsterdam with a roof terrace where the sun always shines... when it shines..
A lovely comfortable and relaxed place to start enjoying Amsterdam.
The location is great. The balcony is great because it is in the sun all day... and a nice place to relax, have breakfast, lunch or dinner... or a drink..
Enjoy a stay in my great apartment located at the border of the beautiful neighborhood Jordaan
Close to the trendy Westerpark area just outside the city center and the famous Vondelpark. The apartment is located on the forth floor.
The Westerpark area is very trendy with many cute bars, cafe's and restaurants. The popular cultural park itself is just a 10 minute walk from the apartment and is a great place to visit to have a drink, go to the cinema or just for a walk around the park.
Vondelpark is a 15min walk. It's very lively on warm days. More so than the Westerpark which is a little more relaxed and less packed with youth.
The apartment itself has a bright & spacious Living room.
There is WiFi throughout the apartment so you're always connected!
The Bedroom has a comfortable double bed with all fresh & clean linnen. I will make some space for you in the closet to unpack your clothes or other belongings. It's very quiet so you will have no trouble sleeping.
The Bathroom is clean and is just the right size with a toilet, a shower and a sink. All the towels that you need will be there.
The Kitchen is fully equiped with a fridge, an oven, a Senseo machine, a kettle, and a blender among other appliances.
The apartment is easy to reach from Central Station by taxi which will cost you around 10 euro's.
You can also walk (15min) from Amsterdam Central station.
Or (from Central Station to the apartment) you can take bus 18 or 21 (bus stop is on the other side of the water and then 70meters to the right).
Get out at bus stop Marnixplein
Tram 10 is at a 1 minute walk and takes you pretty much around Amsterdam. It stops at popular sights like
- The Jordaan area (Anne Frank House)
- Leidseplein (shopping and nightlife)
- Museumsquare (with the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum &
the Modern Art Museum)
- The Amstel canal
Of course you can transfer to other public transportation to get you anywhere you want in town.
The best way to get around Amsterdam and to feel the city is by renting a bike though.
All the shops to get some grocery's are around the corner (when leaving the house, turn left, then the second left and after 300m is a supermarket (open till 22.00 7 days a week) & a grocery store.
Enjoy a fantastic stay in Amsterdam by booking a room or my apartment in this great location. You'll be very comfortable and feel like you're actually living like a local in this amazing city. I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time here!

When in the apartment talking on the balcony after midnight is fine. Please be considerate of the neighbors.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
David nous a accueillies avec sympathie, la chambre était prête quand nous sommes arrivées. Il était présent chez lui pendant notre séjour, mais très discret.
La cuisine n'était ni rangée ni nettoyée donc nous ne pouvions pas cuisiner et la salle de bain était peu pratique.
L'appartement est bien situé, dans un quartier calme, pas très loin du centre ville.
David est très sympa et nous avons eu plaisir a le rencontrer. La chambre petite comprend le stricte nécessaire ainsi que la salle de bain. Nous avons bien dormi, l'environnement étant très calme et le matelas de bonne qualité. L'appart est très bien positionné dans un quartier calme tout en étant proche du centre même a pied ! Seul petit bémol : l'appart pourrait être un peu mieux rangé.. L'escalier (4 étages) est un peu hard mais ce n'est pas bien gênant !
David is sympathetic, friendly and helpful. He has great plans and is willing to tell. His appartemnt is cute, little and located great. However we didn't really like it, because our bedroom was very small, except of us there were two other air bnb-girls in this little appartement and he was also there nearly all the time. There was rarely privacy possible. Besides the bathroom wasn't clean and didn't smell good. At the last day the toilet paper seamed to run out. But we could arrange with these points, when the price for a stay wouldn't be so expensive.
David er en veldig hyggelig og omgjengelig person, virkelig kul fyr, som fikk meg til å føle meg som hjemme. Han ga alt av nødvendig informasjon på forhånd forsikret seg om at alt gikk bra gjennom oppholdet. Jeg kunne spørre både han og naboene om det var noe jeg trengte. Leiligheten er lys og fin og ligger bra til. I tillegg var det treningssenter og svømmebasseng rett ved! Jeg hadde et fint opphold!
David was a very welcoming host, his house mate too. He offered us any advice we needed and made us feel at home. The place is very nice, a pretty basic room with just a bed, but the living room/kitchen is really nice and the terrace was great (although a little cold in December).
In reading the other comments, it appears our experience was an outlier. While David was helpful and agreeable, the lodging was not what we expected. The pictures would be an accurate depiction of the apartment if everything weren't under a pile of clutter in real life. This hindered our ability to feel at home (places to sit were covered, dishes needed to be cleaned etc). The bed wasn't made when we arrived either; the comforter was tossed on the bed. Also note that there is a strong sour smell that is present in the bathroom--it could just be the plumbing of the apartment, but it was definitely an unpleasant surprise. As far as a place to sleep, this location worked out well, but based solely on our experience I unfortunately cannot recommend this Airbnb location.
Hi Amanda, sorry to hear that. You are right. As I wasn't home the week you arrived and that weekend I was very busy. As you are more than welcome to use the living room and the kitchen (in the living room) and both we're a pile of clutter. Next time I'd advise you to tell the 'host'. I spoke to your boyfriend on Saturday and could have put all the clothes of our project back and put the dishes in the dishwasher. Now I found out about the plumbing problem after you left. I didn't have time to put the comforter around the blanket. I don't understand why you didn't use it though.
I still hope you had a good time and hope your next airbnb experiences will be better.
We had a pleasant stay in his house, although the room is small. The hose is near the center of city in a very nice neighborhood.
