About this listing
The newly opened Rijsmuseum is around the corner, 2 minutes!
My place is the most perfect place you can possibly stay in in Amsterdam. It is in a beautiful corner house built around 1900 on the first floor, full of light and nice views through the 6 windows. It is a former nuns house, hence on the corner is a scary looking nun to scare off the evil. It is completely private as no neighbours can look in, and even comes in with a beautiful tower room, where you have full view over the canal (Lijnbaansgracht) and can see the trams at Leidseplein.
For guests with any mobility issues or a disability that prevents you from using stairs, there is one long flight of very steep stairs up to this flat (very common for Amsterdam, but worth keeping in mind).
It is 200 meters or 5 minutes walk to Leidseplein, Vondelpark and Rijksmuseum which will make your stay very special and comfortable.
Shopping street Leidsestraat and PC Hoofdstraat are literally around the corner, and around the house you have plenty of Art Galleries and antique storesto sneak around.
The area in where my apartment is at is called de Weteringbuurt due to all street names starting with Wetering, and sometimes also the Spiegel area, due to the Spiegelstraat which is famous all around the world for the antique stores.
There are 2 majore bicycle rentals 3 minute walk away, and public transport hub Leidseplein is 2 minutes walk: Tram 1,2,5, 7 and 10 cross there. Trams 24 and 25 pass Weteringcircuit which is 1 minute away.
The location is perfect because you are in the middle of everything, yet it is very quiet with beautiful views on the canal with the private boots passing along, and the street with the bicycles and people strolling through Amsterdam.
The studio comes with all luxury facilities, kitchen, coffee machine, fridge, washing machine, dryer, couch, table, separate bathroom with large windows at the back.
Welcome to Amsterdam, welcome home!
Generally I expect my guests to treat my place as if its your own. Please take care of the neighbours, and greet everyone you come across. There are only two other appartments in the house, but since you all use the same entrance door please always take care that the door is closed when you leave
Volkers flat is amazig. Fine location, canal view, equiped with all you need. Flat is on walking distance from everything, and just 5 min from rijks and van goghs museum. You can see Lieds square and straat from window. Supermarket is behind a corner, cafe bar down under, hudreds of restoraunts are all around.
Amsterdam is amazing.
Liam (volkers friend, who was waiting for us) is a very nice and kind guy and a good hostige.
I recomend this flat to everybody.
Had a wonderful time at Volker's flat. We were very pleased with how central the location was, with easy access to transit and major sites (Museum, Vondelpark, Heineken Experience). We actually ended up only using the tram once, as everything seemed to be no more than a 20 minute walk.
As a runner (training for a marathon in August), I was really happy with the proximity to Vondelpark.
The apartment itself had all the comforts of home, including lots of condiments, milk and coffee. Bart met us and told us all we needed to know about the flat. Really have nothing bad to say about this place. Will definitely stay here again in the future. Thanks Volker and Bart!
Volker's apartment was in the most ideal location you could wish for! It had everything we needed and was beautifully clean and tidy. Bart greeted me and was very friendly and extremely helpful. He helped us find parking for only 1 euro a day. We had a wonderful time.
We stayed at Volker's place in Amsterdam and it was amazing. Bart and Liat were extremely helpful before we arrived and made sure everything was OK. The apartment is beautiful, very well decorated and laid out. It's in a great location next to the canal; we could see boats going past all the time and we were never more than 15 minute walk from any attraction we wanted to see. It's also just a couple of minutes from the nearest tram stop. If you're looking to stay in Amsterdam, look no further than this great apartment.
Parfait studio pour séjour parfait! Les photos sont à 100% représentatives de la réalité des lieux. La vue sur les canaux est très agréable. Proche de tout (trams, supermarché, restaurants, "brown cafés"...), mais loin de la frénésie touristique du centre. Donne envie de s'y installer de façon permanente ;-)
De plus, la communication avant notre arrivée avec notre hôte fût fluide et efficace. Nous recommandons chaudement!!!
Nos alojamos en la casa de Volker 6 noches en julio. La casa tiene una espectacular vista a los canales de Amsterdam en un barrio a cuadras de la zona histórica y en la zona de museos. Casa amplia y moderna por dentro e histórica por fuera. Graciosa por lo pequeña su escalera de entrada no impidió que subiéramos ese piso nuestras valijas, pero así son todas las casas en Amsterdam. Baño amplio y cómodo. Casa con lava y seca ropas, dato importante para largas estadías.
Liat and Bart were very accommodating with our arrival as we had a delayed flight and showed up eight hours late. The apartment is beautiful and very clean. The location could not have been better. We would certainly recommend this apartment and We would stay there again the next time we are in Amsterdam.
