The apartment is on the ground floor and has a magnificent view over the large canal, called Noord-Hollands kanaal, from the seating area. Except for the seating area, there is a bar in the kitchen. And a cosy dining area.
The bathroom is modern and you can change the color of the shower wall to match with your mood.
Through authentic sliding doors with stained-glass you get to the bedroom that is decorated in a peaceful atmosphere.
Alkmaar is above all Holland's cheese town. There's a famous cheesemarket every Friday. The season runs from the first Friday of April to the first Friday of September. The cheesemarket takes place between 10.00 and 12:30. Cheeses are then sold by dealers on a clap of hands.
Pay a visit to one of the most beautiful and historical parts of the country. The city is not only popular for it cheese market there is (website hidden) example you can take canal boat tour and visit places like De Waag ( Weighing House). The beautiful wooden house dating back to 1557. Also you shouldn't miss the historical sights, like the national Biermuseum (De Boom), the different Windmills spread around the city and many more.
The city centre of Alkmaar is also great for shopping, there's a large variety of shops for everyone. There are many cosy and good restaurants to be found, we can give you good suggestions. And last but not least the nightlife in the city is nice & cosy.
The apartment is called KNus. It's 60m2 and it is in the city centre.
It is located in an old mansion from 1900, it had many different destinations, it's even been a pub!
We had a great time in Alkmaar and the surrounding area. Old Town Alkmaar was convenient from the apartment, easy to walk into.
The apartment was adequate
Place was pleasant, though it was somewhat dirty when we arrived. Great location within Alkamaar. We actually accidentally booked this location thinking it was in Amsterdam, but the train made it relatively easy to get to the main city. Couch wasn't as large as it appeared on the picture but for couch surfers, it was more than sufficient. The bed in the actual room was actually just two twin beds out together so they often split, or had a person falling in between. Overall pleasant experience although not much interaction with host.
Alkmaar it is very very very beatifull! Excelent host and good comunicación with them!
The apartment it is very nice and confortable.
Very was y to get to Amsterdam by Train!
Lovely flat. 10mins walk to the city centre. The flat is overlooking a river/lake. Stunning view. Clean and modern. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.
