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 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 3 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. The room is equipped with Wifi, some DVD's and German, Dutch and English books. We also provide you with guidebooks about Amsterdam, maps and cycle guides of the area. We can show you really nice 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 opposite the house there is a deli with daily fresh bread, open daily (except sunday in the morning) and where you also can get pizza's until 10pm.
In the room there is a water-cooker, tea and coffee, cups, boards and some cutlery. In september there's going to come back a really nice cafe around the corner with view onto the square and canal, You can sit there in the sun from the morning until evening. Another possibility 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 which takes you to 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 on the 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 Dutch stairs :-)
Private bath room
Around the corner you can sit on the square in a coffee shop, there's a deli opposite our house.
The area is very scenic, but there are no tourists!
Within 5 minutes walking you reach the centre.
Tram No. 3 starts around the corner and brings you to Museumplein.
300m walking to Haarlemmerplein where bus 18, 20 or 21 leaves fro Central station.
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.
Le quartier est bien situé par rapport à la gare et au centre ville.Accès facile.
Accueil sympa et disponibilité de Georg.
Documentation sur Amsterdam très complète dans l'appartement
Nice location and the description was accurate. The room was clean and the host was nice. I would certainly recommend this room to my friends or anyone who likes to stay in Amsterdam for a citytrip
Georg been very prompt in responding to my queries prior to the booking and kindly provided clear instructions in getting to the place after the booking was made.
The location is good with convenience store around and walking distance to the bus and tram station with cosy and friendly neighbourhood. Plenty of frequent buses which can take you to the Central Station and visit any place around - a plus point.
There is a useful guide in terms of getting around, renting bikes, recommendation of nice cafe/ restaurants around, a lot of guide book which too bad I didn't get to read them. The red wine is also welcoming though we were too tired from our walking to try it.
The room is clean with everything we needed inside there not to mention the bathtub which we enjoy soaking our feet after a long day walk! Very spacious place which is very convenient as we were carrying backpack. The bed is also comfortable which we were so reluctant to get up in some mornings to catch early buses.
Although the staircase is narrow which is pretty normal for standard houses in the NL, it added some fun and memories to our honeymoon as a precious experience staying in a typical NL house instead of some hotel-like places which makes us falling in love with NL even more!
Total privacy that it makes us feel like staying in our own cosy place.
We will definitely return to the same place if we ever visit NL again in future!
Thanks Georg & Heleen for everything!
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.
