About this listing
A home away from home
Great location(everyone keeps on telling me)
STEAP characteristic stairs (not for people who hate stairs or have troubles with legs or feet/ do not walk well)
What I offer: great location, comfortable bed, private & clean home.
Be careful for:
The stairs are really steep
On the pictures you see one of the two studios I rent out in the same building. If you are looking for a place for 4 people this could also be ideal! This studio is located on the second floor of the building. It is right in the middle of the center of Amsterdam. Just around the corner of the lively part of Amsterdam. Nearby everything in town: museums, shops, clubs, bars and restaurants. Public transport is really around the corner. The central station is 15 minutes walking distance and by tram it will only take you 5 minutes (tram 1, 2 and 5). The famous/oldest café in Amsterdam is right in front.
What's in the private studio?:
•Comfortable double bed
•Kitchenette with fridge, tea cooker, Nespresso machine
•Private shower and toilet
•Windows are double, which keeps out the most of the noice
•Free use of washing machine and dryer
On walking distance of:
•The Central Station
•The Van Gogh Museum
•The Anne Frank House
•The Stedelijk museum
•The Rembrandts Plein
•The shopping streets: Kalverstraat, Leidsestraat or the “Negen Straatjes”
Breakfast can be served upon request for €15 per person per day.
USP: Great location, beautiful building, great bed, clean room and a host that does everything in her power to let her guests leave satisfied and experience a home away from home in Amsterdam. Hoping to exceed your expectations.
Please be aware it is possible that you are booked in my other studio as they are both so alike. This depends on my other bookings, but I will try my best to let you in the studio you prefer of course!
You have your own room with everything you need. You can use my washing mashine and dryer and in that same closset there is a hair dryer or an ironer.
Interaction with Guests
As I live in the same building, so normally I am around to help out with everything you need. You will have your own studio with your own bath room though, so all the privacy you need.
My home is in the best neighboorhood. Everything is closeby and it feels like a small village in the city ring. The best thing to do is just walk around town(the best and quieter on a Sunday morning). For sure also take a boat tour as Amsterdam is really beautifull from the canals.
It is pretty easy to rent a bike as every Dutch person living in Amsterdam uses one. Also trams are pretty easy to use, but as you are closeby everthing I would prefer walking as then you can see everything our city has to offer better.
Please do not smoke(cleaning of curtains will cost €150). Pets are great, but hygienical reasons they are not allowed in my home.
This was our first AirBnB and it couldn't have been a better experience! Monique's charming studio is perfectly located on the Spuistraat, conveniently located neat the tram station. From this location, we were able to walk nearly everywhere. One of our favorite restaurants was a few doors down. One night we had a storm that knocked out tram service. We didn't miss it at all. We were easily able to walk to restaurants and many bars. A++ location.
The condo itself was immaculate. The bathroom is tiny but completely functional and includes a hairdryer. The best is comfy.
Monique met us on our first night and gave some great instructions for dinner and other local restaurants. She was completely accessible throughout our stay.
I would go back in a second. We had a fantastic stay at an amazing place!
Monique was most welcoming on our arrival, despite our being late by an hour due to a flight delay, and it was really convenient that she lives in the same building. On our arrival, we were offered drinks and an introduction to the area from a local's perspective, and given some suggestions for things to do. We had two sets of keys, so coming and going from the apartment is really easy - it's a perfect base for exploring the city in directions, and turned out to be ideally located. Monique even organised a personal canal tour for us, which was terrific. We would thoroughly recommend Monique's B&B to everyone.
The listing description was very accurate. Good central location but a bit load outside as there are several bars on the street. Very clean and perfect size for a few nights.
What an amazing place and an amazing host! Perfectly (email hidden)esome bed and beautiful updated shower and bath! Just perfect for a 3 day visit to Amsterdam!
Monique stays just upstairs and was there to greet us when we arrived. She showed us around the studio and gave us suggestions on where to go. Her website is very helpful in finding things to do and places to eat at. The apartment was on the second floor above a restaurant in one of the main squares of Amsterdam. This made the studio a great base for exploring the city. Monique made herself available throughout the stay and encouraged us to call her if anything went wrong. I would recommend this place if you want to be in the heart of the city and within walking distance of most major attractions.
Perfect . The location ia very nice .... Monique welcomed us very well and was very helpful..... " super recomendo "
Everything is beyond expectation in Amsterdam! Monique is the best host I have ever met, sincere, quick feedback, and prepared almost everything when we arrived. The apartment location, although many people mentioned already, is really prefect. This is a perfect experience and no doubt I will come back again to Amsterdam and Monique's studio.
