Great Bar on ground floor, Great apartment (lots of steps to the top, don't bring granny or the pram!) and Great location. Would recommend.
Esther and Jan's place is fabulous! The flat is in a traditional Amsterdam house in the middle of the center and it has a lot of character. It was spotless when we got there and in perfect condition. We really appreciated that we were able to check in on such last minute as we had problems with our previous accommodation. Plus Jan popped around to check on us when we thought the WIFI wasn't working. There is a little traffic noise in one if the bedrooms, but therefor you have a great place smack in the city! And be prepared to climb lots of stairs - it's the traditional building style. Thanks for a great stay!
We just got back from Amsterdam after staying at this apartment for my boyfriends 30th - there were 8 of us and had plenty of room! We absolutely loved it.
Literally a 2 min walk from the train station and 10 min walk down through the cafés and shops to Dam Square.
Jan was fantastic to communicate with while booking the apartment, and very quick to reply to any questions I had after having made he booking.
Great having access to the free wifi and can connect to the Apple TV.
I've already been back online to have a look for availability in the year as we can't wait to go back! 5 stars out of 5 stars!! Would defiantly recommend to others!
We could not have asked for a better base for our visit to Amsterdam. Jan and Esther's apartment is completely charming and central to everything and they have done a lovely job with the refurbishment - the furnishings and fittings are very high quality and the beds were super-comfortable. The apartment is really quiet despite the great café downstairs and how central it is. Take note of what the listing says about the stairs though - it is quite a hike, especially if you're carrying a baby up and down. You quickly get used to that though and it's all good exercise!
The place is ideally centered, charming and spacious. Nice canal view and we were able to do an early check-in which was just perfect since we travelled by night to reach Amsterdam.
There was a big plancha grill available in the apartment, so we had a wonderfull dinner with friends during our stay: top!
I highly recommend Esther & Jan 's place since it was simply the best apartment (price for value) I have ever rented in Amsterdam.
I hope to come back very soon!
Absolutely Astonishing, this apartment is sooo beautiful :) We were a group of 6 friends, the apartment has beds for every of us and comfortable - the location is the best if you want to be in the "living city" and really easy to find, in every condition :)
If you'll come to Amsterdam, this is the place to be!!! You have to see it...
Just what it says on the package!Stunning apartment,great location and brilliant hosts!Will definitely be back again!Special thanks to Esther and Jan for all their advice.
Great place and super location! Fully recommended ! :)
Very nice apartment on a perfect spot in Amsterdam. The hosts are very helpful.
Great apartment and the localization is just perfect. And for a group of 6 ladies as ours it was very good to have two bathrooms and a separate toilet. Would recommend it .
