Our room with private bathroom (including shower and tub) is situated in a quiet and picturesque area in Central Amsterdam. Around the corner you can sit on the square along a canal in a coffee shop. Within 5 minutes walking you reach the centre.
This room with en suite private bathroom including shower and tub is situated on the first floor of a historic monument from the beginning of the 20th century, built in the Amsterdam school style. The house was recently (5 years ago) thoroughly renovated including a completely new private bathroom with natural stone, shower and bath tub. We live on the 2nd and 3rd floor ourselves.
The house is situated in the small "Zeeheldenbuurt", close to famous Prinseneiland and separated from the city centre only by the railway tracks. It is only 5 minutes walking to get there (Jordaan and grachten: canals, atmospheric shopping, cafe's) but around the house you barely will find any tourists - apart from the beautiful canals, bridges, houses in Amsterdam style and bistro's around the house!
We provide you with everything: sheets, 4 towels, showergel, soap, a hairdryer, an umbrella and a welcome bottle of wine. And also with a handy city map, bike maps and some guide books in English and German. The room is equipped with Wifi, some DVD's and German, Dutch and English books. We can show you really nice cycle routes to the beautiful Waterlands starting only 2km away if you want. It is easy to rent a bike (Central station or Jordaan, 10 - 15 minutes walking),
There is no breakfast included, but around the corner there is a really nice Café where you can have breakfast from 8:00 on and a beer or wine in the evening, with good whether sitting in the sun looking onto a picturesque canal. Opposite the house there is a deli with fresh bread and other delicious food open daily form 8:00 on (except sunday in the morning) and where you also can get pizza's until 10pm. And besides is a grocery with fresh fruit & vegetable.
In the room there is a water-cooker, tea and coffee, cups, boards and some cutlery.
Another possibility for having breakfast is to walk to Haarlemmeerdijk or Brouwersgracht for Italian and American coffeeshops. If you want a decent dinner there is a very good French restaurant with a Michelin star cook only 50m away to the right and two fair to medium priced restaurants about 150m away one of it with a place in the sun until 8pm and a look onto a romantic gracht.
The location has a convenient connection to the Central Station by bus nr. 48 which takes you there in about 5 minutes after a 3 minutes walk, and to the musea and Concertgebouw by tram nr. 3 (starting around the corner) which takes you to the three famous musea (van Gogh museum, Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk museum for modern art) on Mueseumplein in about 15 minutes after a 1 minute walk. The costs for one hour in the tram are 2,50 euro.
The building is built in the Amsterdam school style (1910) and is a historical monument on the Amsterdam cultural heritage list. It's located in the western central part of Amsterdam in a friendly and quiet area with small shops and a number of highly rated and approachable restaurants.
You will well have to climb one classical set of steep and quite narrow Dutch stairs. Too narrow by the way to fall down :-)

You have a lot of privacy as you live on the first floor whereas we do on the 2nd and 3rd floor.

The place was lovely, within a walking distance from the city center. We didn't have an opportunity to meet out hosts in person, but we felt very welcome. I would definitely recommend it.
This was an easy and enjoyable trip, the room was very comfortable and the complimentary bottle of wine was a nice treat. The neighbourhood is also lovely, quiet and has a number of good eateries. Overall a great stay.
We really enjoyed our weekend stay at Georg and Heleens. Great location, very easy to go to the city and the buses are frequent. The room was great, really clean and the bed was comfortable. Would highly recommend this to family and friends and would definitely come back again.
It was the 2nd time I stayed here, so needless to say, I think it's great. It's the perfect location for me, within walking distance of nice shops and the station, and the hosts are friendly, and the place nice and cozy!
Sehr schönes Zimmer in einem tollen Viertel bei einem sehr netten Menschen. Gerne wieder :)
Georg was the perfect host. Friendly, quick to respond and very helpful with well-organised information. The flat is as described and in the perfect location for me. I would book it again!
Georg war ein sehr freundlicher, hilfsbereiter und flexibler Gastgeber, der mit rat und tat geholfen hat , so das wir uns von der ersten Minute an sehr wohl gefühlt haben.
Das Zimmer und Badezimmer waren genauso wie in der Anzeige ,sehr ordentlich und sauber.
Das Zimmer liegt in einem sehr ruhigem Stadtteil , ist aber dennoch Zentral gelegen, so das man bequem Zu fuß bis ins Zentrum laufen kann , ansonsten ist um die Ecke gleich eine Straßenbahnhaltestelle.
Wir kommen gerne wieder , können Georg auch jederzeit weiterempfehlen.
I have been traveling a lot and like this idea of renting out a room, this is exactly what I missed when traveling myself, staying in more or less (un)personal guesthouses or hotels rooms.
I have a very busy job as a medical professional, and enjoy my beautiful house, the rich culture of Amsterdam and the nice cycling around town in my (spare) free time.
