* Please note that in historic buildings in Amsterdam, like Kobalt Inn, the staircases are much narrower and steeper than most people are used to. The apartment is situated on the 3rd floor and does not have an elevator, though if required "bell-boy service" is available for your suitcases upon request.
* For people travelling with babies/small children please note that a baby high chair (Stokke TrippTrapp) is present as well as baby bed, baby duvet, baby changing mattress and baby bath (TummyTub). I would also be happy to recommend an experienced babysitter if required.

I made a last minute booking and Jan was very quick to respond to the booking request and any other questions we had. Having the keys at the Cafe Kobalt made the check in and check out very convenient. Jan even stopped by to see that we had everything that we needed.
As many have said, the location is excellent. The train was very easy from the airport and the station is right down the street.
Superb and very centric location! Right in front of the Amsterdam Central Train Station. Walking distance to many attractions(duration derives from 10-40mins walk). 15mins walk from the Red Light District, 5mins walk from The Bull Dog Cafe. 10mins walk from Amsterdam Central Train Station.
The flat is accompanied with complete equipments that makes it very homey and comfortable; oven/microwave, washing & dryer machine, vacuum cleaner, TV, heater, Wifi, comfortable beds, clean towels.
Definitely a great place that is strategically located.
The only setback is the stairway.
Having to transport your heavy luggage to the 3rd floor, where the unit is, via the steepest stairs will require good physical health. In addition, the stairway lights work by censor. Thus, resorting you to not be able to see the stairways in complete dark if you haven't passed the censor.
Other than that, it is a real cozy and great place to rent.
Great flat with nice atmosphere in a really central and cool neighbourhood (only 5-10 mins walking distance to the central station). Easy to get key downstairs in the cafe/bar, which by the way serves a good breakfast and lunch for a descent price and with great service. Esther and Jan were really nice and easy going. Would really reccommend to stay with them!
The apartment was beautiful and the location was convenient -close to central station and there are cafes and shops around. Cheese shop at the corner and Kobalt Cafe were our favourites. There were two bedrooms with double bed, all well decorated and clean. The sofa in the living room was comfortable to sleep. Having a coffee machine, water heater and fridge were enough to have a quick breakfast at the apartment but we preferred Kobalt Cafe downstairs. Stairs were narrow and very steep but we did not have any problem.
Esther and Jan were great hosts; they sent us all the details about apartment in advance.
I strongly recommend this apartment.
Esther and Jan are perfect hosts! Really appreciated their apartment which had all the facilities one could wish for. The location is ideal, everything in Central Amsterdam is at walking distance.
Next we're in Amsterdam, we will try to book their apartment, and hopefully get it if its not already booked!
A must for those who want to evade from the soulless places and are ready to experience the real life of Amsterdam and its stif staircases!
A real authentic place where you immediately feel "homy". The building is outstanding, the appartment was perfect and with a direct access to the coffee/restaurant downstairs. What could you expect more?
We'll be back!
The apartment was clean, comfortable and beautiful! I wish we had more time there. The check in was easy and made us feel at home. The apartment is close to central station and easily accessible to most places. The Kobalt Cafe downstairs was great and the staff was fantastic. I would highly recommend a visit here.
This apartment is exactly as described - beautiful, spacious and the location could not be more central. Perfect for a short break as it is so close to the central station. Esther & Jan were kind enough to lend us baby equipment as well which made our stay much easier and was very much appreciated.
The view from the double doors is amazing, right on to the canal, the cafe tables and the bustling centre of Amsterdam.
The location does mean that the apartment is not noise free - you can hear the trains at the nearby station and traffic/people on the roads, but this is to be expected in a city centre location, especially in an old building with authentic windows! If you are a light sleeper it might be worth bringing earplugs. It is great feeling as though you are in the middle of the city though!
The kitchen is lovely, but probably not recommended for extensive cooking - there are no extras (oil, kitchen towels etc) which you might find in someone's house, this is equipped more like a luxury holiday rental (including a fantastic coffee machine!). But with so many great restaurants within a minutes walk, you probably won't want to cook!
We had a wonderful stay and would definitely book this apartment again - many thanks!
This apartment was wonderful! Comfortable beds, gorgeous view, convenient location to transportation (buses and train) as well as just walking to the main sites easily, and plenty of linens and towels. Our stay was wonderful and we found the whole process easy - we were able to check in early and store our luggage, which also made our stay more convenient! Finally, all the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Fair warning, the stairs are quite narrow - but we managed :) Our group of 6 was comfortable and happy! Only regret is not actually meeting Esther or Jan :)
A very comfortable house in the middle of the city.
