My apartment is located on the top two floors (no elevator/lift) of a quiet 4-story residential building, on a side street of the Prinsengracht canal, one bridge from the Anne Frank house. I offer an upstairs bedroom overlooking an inner courtyard.
EXCELLENT location. 15 - 20 minutes walking from Central Station Amsterdam. 2-night minimum booking.
(Please check calendar for availability)
My apartment is a quiet and relaxing oasis, in the center of the best that Amsterdam has to offer.
My apartment is located on the top two floors (no elevator/lift) of a quiet 4-story residential building, on a side street of the Prinsengracht canal, one bridge from the Anne Frank house.
I offer an upstairs bedroom overlooking an inner courtyard with a super comfortable double bed (no kitchen facilities). The room is suitable for 1 or 2 people. There is also a hall leading into the bedroom with a wardrobe and extra cupboard for your things. The apartment entrance leads directly to the upstairs area where the room is, so when you come and go, you have your privacy. The room is small...and not suitable for guests with extra large suitcases(!) If you have a large suitcase, please book somewhere else...I would suggest somewhere in the Jordaan if possible.
Flexible check-in and check-out times in consultation. You can leave your bags in the apt. on your day of departure, and return to collect them when you are leaving Amsterdam: simply leave the keys, and close the door - it locks automatically. You can basically check-out whenever you want. I only ask that the room is available around 12:00 on your day of departure so that I can prepare it for the next guests.
I would also like to mention that I have a dog, who stays downstairs with me.
You will receive info on getting to my house, etc. after you have booked. The information is provided by Airbnb on your booking confirmation page. !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Payment received for your accommodation includes all associated taxes. As of February 2015, Airbnb will collect the 5.5 percent tourist tax for this listing separately.
Rental includes use of the upstairs bedroom and shared bathroom (no kitchen facilities), which I only use for showering. (I have an extra toilet on lower floor.) There are bathroom supplies available including a blow-dryer, shampoo/rinse, shower gel, cotton makeup-remover pads, and toothpaste. All linens and towels are provided, of course.
There are no kitchen facilities available with the room. There is a hot water cooker in the room to make tea or coffee/hot chocolate, and 'picnic' supplies for you including plastic plates and bowls, silverware, corkscrew, and napkins. I always put a pitcher of water, cups and glasses in room. There are lots of charming cafe's and restaurants for breakfast (Yum+ : Cafe Letting!!), lunch, and dinner directly available in my lovely neighborhood.
There is an outdoor sitting area downstairs on the back side of the apartment with a table and chairs, overlooking the inner courtyard. It is available at anytime, and has sun in the late afternoon...when we have sun!
Interaction with Guests
I spend most of my time on the lower floor, so the upstairs bedroom offers you privacy!
My home is in the Jordaan quarter, in the heart of Amsterdam, and one of the most picturesque parts of the city with its historical architecture, canals, and charming views. The Jordaan is known and enjoyed for its eclectic potpourri of shops, cafes, and galleries.
The central location is truly ideal and offers you Amsterdam at your doorstep. Almost all of the sites of Amsterdam are within easy and scenic walking distance.
On Mondays until 13:00 (with Flea Market) and Saturdays until 16:00 (with Farmer's Market), there are outdoor street markets just around the corner from my house, and they shouldn't be missed! Both markets offer interesting wares, some great people-watching, and a chance to experience local life firsthand!
Public transportation is easily accessible (within a few blocks), and my home is a 15-minute walk from Amsterdam Central Station.
Respectful and quiet. You can of course, come and go as you please.
Please treat the apartment with care, and keep in mind that you have neighbors.
The apartment is a regular home in a quiet residential building. It is not an after-hours club - so no parties, no loud music, etc.
We reserve the right to remove you from the apartment if you do not follow these guidelines.
I had two wounderful days in Amsterdam. Lived very central and close to the most important for me.
I'm very satisfied to stay at Carolyns apartment. She helped me among other things, to book a taxi early in the morning.
Carolyn is a nice host and I would warmly recomend to stay at her.
We really enjoyed our stay at Carolyn's house. She's a great host, very nice and welcoming. Moreover the location is perfect for visiting the city. We warmly recommend Carolyn !

Die Unterkunft ist perfekt für einen Besuch in Amsterdam! Sie liegt sehr zentral im angesagten Jordaan-Viertel. Vor der Haustür gibt es zahlreiche Cafés und Bars. Carolyn ist außerdem sehr freundlich und eine Tolle Gastgeberin! Bereits in der Beschreibung klärt sie alle Fragen und auch persönlich kann sie viele Tipps geben, die den Aufenthalt sehr angenehm machen!
Warm welcome and full of details (chocolate and Dutch biscuits included). The room matched the expectations according to the web description. The neighborhood is just awesome, one of the best spots in the world.
To be honest, I have a couple of negative experience at her place.
1) I don't smoke, and dislike the the cigarette smell. She posted her room only for non-smoker, and I assumed I don't worry about my concern. However, I believe the house owner smokes. The moment I entered her place, I noticed very strong cigarette smell, which discourated me during my entire stay.
2) I don't think I got welcomed professionally and nicely upon my arrival. I pressed the door bell three times as I didn't hear any response, which made her very upset. Nobody wants to be greeted with negative attitude especially there was no reason to be blamed.
Here is a positive element about her place.
Mitsuko you pressed the doorbell three times in less than 1 second!!! You didn't give me time to get to the door. You pressed the doorbell three times because you said YOU didn't hear it ring. Annoying, yes...for me and my neighbors as the doorbell in our building is loud from one apartment to the next. You have to give people time to answer the doorbell and not assume the doorbell doesn't work. You emailed from the airport that you had arrived on an earlier flight and wanted to check in early, and told me I could email you back within 30 minutes. I answered your email within 10 minutes, and you didn't answer my email. Almost an hour later you called me instead, and our call was dropped in the middle of the conversation. I couldn't call your back (no caller ID) and you didn't call me back. I had changed my morning plans to accommodate your early arrival. I had two students during your stay who smoked, and I kept the downstairs door closed while they were in my home. Your area upstairs and your room were smoke free, as you know. You also had not checked how to get to your next host's house, who was also in Amsterdam and expected me to work it out for you... which I tried to do, but your map didn't have her street on it, so we went online to find the exact tram stop for you etc. You could have easily emailed your next host instead, and asked about which tram and tram stop you needed. Frankly, I felt you were taking advantage of my hospitality, and apparently unappreciative.
Actually, a friend of Mine stayed at carolyns Apartment, thats realy closed to the Center, in a beautiful area!
She reallly felt comfortable and wellcome, Carolyn was nice and helpful.
Thank You for understanding, hope we meet eachother one das personally :)
Staying at Carolyns was great, she's a perfect host. Had a bunch of tourist information and suggestions of places to go!
The appartment is perfectly located for checking out the Jordaan.
Would definitely stay here again!
