We really enjoyed our stay at the apartment! It was clean and spacious and the rooftop terrace is amazing. Conny was a very friendly host and it was easy to communicate with her. The neighbourhood is perfect: the street itself is very quiet, but very close to the center.
We had a wonderful stay in Conny's apartment. It was a very spacious, beautiful apartment in a very quiet area. The highlight was the fantastic roof terrace, where we had several evening meals looking at the views of Amsterdam. Conny is a delightful host who was very helpful, and provided various guide books of Amsterdam. I would highly recommend staying here.
Conny was very gracious and welcoming. She greeted us as we arrived and gave us a thorough tour of the house. We were immediately struck by how spacious and beautiful the place was. The rooms are all very large, and both of the bedrooms have their own adjoining bathrooms. We also appreciated the half bath on the other floor. The views from the windows are spectacular, especially from the rooftop terrace. It was our first trip to Amsterdam so seeing the city from the top of the house was exciting. The neighborhood was wonderful. There was a market and other stores a short walking distance away. We bought a 48-hours metro pass which enabled us to get anywhere in the city quite easily. We enjoyed our stay immensely and would recommend it to anyone visiting Amsterdam.
Beautiful home in a great location, with all the amenities one could ask for.
Conny was highly responsive, and was gracious a host one could ask for.
We truly loved the city and the home was a wonderful sanctuary!
très bel appartement bien situé dans le centre d'Amsterdam.
Thank you for the stay. In your private feedback it said that you did not know how to use the coffeemachine. But I showed you at check in, moreover there was a manual in all your 3 languages. I think these type of comments (either private or public) after the stay do not contribute to the Airbnb community. Same with not communicating your change of plans with arrival times.
A fantastic apartment in a quiet but central location. Very well equipped and the roof terrace was a real highlight. We would love to come back for our next visit but for longer and will definitely be recommending to friends!
My wife and I spent two weeks in Conny's penthouse. The property was everything it was promoted to be. Great location, right on a canal in the medieval heart of the city within easy walk of museums, the zoo, and countless restaurants and shops. Her place is near the opera house where you can take in one of the finest views of the Amstel river and the old canal houses across the river. The roof terrace is breathtaking and offers views in all four directions, including close up views of angled rooftops. Conny met us and showed us around and was responsive when we had questions. We recommend this residence without qualifications.
