About this listing
Cozy 1 bedroom apartment ca. 55m2, fully furnished in walking distance of Amsterdam City Center! In booming North near Eye film institute and with wonderful view over the IJ.
My lovely apartment is on the third (top) floor with gorgeous view over the city. The living room is very bright with its big windows and there is a nice balcony to enjoy the view and sun.
The location is great because it is across Amsterdam Central Station, so it is near the city center but fortunately in a quiet street/neighbourhood. The free ferry is in six minutes walking distance and takes you into the City Center in only 5 minutes. FREE parking (in a zone 15 min from the apartment).
For everyday shopping there is a supermarket and some little foodshops within walking distance.
Please feel free to contact me for information!
I accept bookings from 0 to 5 weeks in advance.
Good internet connection, cable tv, DVD player, washing machine, comfortable twin bed and lots more.
-A free Beautiful view to welcome you every morning.
Additional info neighbourhood:

In the immediate surroundings of this cozy neighborhood, there are restaurants / cafes like Wilhelminadok, Goudfazant, Stork and Café de Pont.

-No soft or hard drugs and parties in the house.
-The neighbours are very relaxed, but please consider them.
-No loud music after 8PM
-Please put the garbage in the special garbage containers at the street
-I ask a cleaning fee, this is for the extra cleaning of the bathroom and kitchen etc. before your arrival. So I DO expect you to hand over the apartment clean and tidy when you leave.
- In case something gets broken please let me know immediately and don't wait till the end of your stay to notify me. I will fix the problem on my costs if it wasn't your fault.
Last but not least please enjoy your stay ;-)!
When I arrived at the apartment I was shown the apartment and anything I needed to know about the apartment. The apartment was as described in the listing, as was the neighborhood.
Helen's place is situated in a greatplace:just some minutes away from the ferry that takes directly to Station Centraal. It was nice to go on the ferry everyday to start and close the day :)
The house is clean, colourful and live. Helen is very helpful and fast replying to guests' needs. She solved any problem in a couple of hours.
I recommend this place for visitors in Amsterdam.
Very beautiful view through the big window over the rooftops on the amsterdam river IJ and the harbour, barges and cruise ships.
Very easy connection to the Central and the city center, very quite and peaceful, near is a Dirk supermarkt.
The living room is very bright during the daytime, but in the evening its defenetly not enough lighting.
Bathroom and kitchen taps need to be fixed.
The sleeping bed is very large and comfortable. The lighting in bedroom is poor.
Kitchen has all utilities, thanks Helen for perfect coffee!!!
Tv in dutch, english and german:))) you can learn some languages
Coat stand in the entrance hall needs to be fixed, if you put some stuff on it, it will be break down.
All in all nice place to stay and nice host to communicate with, but I and my wife Elena Tokareva, had the feeling that this flat needs a bit more care.
Thanx for your nice and especially helpful review! And perfect timing because I was in Amsterdam myself last weekend to check out the lightning situation. The bedroom and living room have brighter lights now with more watt + I put in an extra (spot)light in the living room which can be used. The taps do leak a bit, so they are going to be fixed.
All the best!
the apartment fit the description perfectly, we had a great time at Helen's place. it was a perfect location, quiet neighborhood with easy access to the city center and train station. we enjoyed it very much and felt right at home in her cosy apartment. Helen was quick in replying to any questions we had and the stay went as smooth as possible:)
Hellen place was great, very easy to go in the city and. nice view over the water, i recomend the place to anyone who come to Amsterdam
We had some great days at Helen's place. Conveniently situated, easy to get to the center of Amsterdam, public parking close by, and a great view of the sizzling harbour from the appt.
Can only recommend this place - especially if Helen adds a couple of bedside lamps ;-)
This appartment is situated in a great location. I'm a total OV-hater but even I took the ferry (5 minutes walk) into town and I loved it.
The appartment itself is spacy, clean and well maintaned. Everything is available to make you feel at home, just as the interior.
Even though not in town, Helen is always available by phone and her mother is great in helping out where needed,
I would everyone recommand this appartment to have a lovely stay in Amsterdam.
