Nice room with en suite bath

Apartment - Private room · Barentszstraat, Amsterdam, North Holland 1013 NN, Netherlands

The Space

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 there 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 :-)

  • Collocazione perfetta, a pochi passi dal Jordaan. La stanza è pulita, gradevole. Il bagno nuovissimo e pulitissimo. Gli ospiti molto discreti e allo stesso tempo accoglienti, in camera c'è un bollitore per preparasi caffè, the o tisana. Ottimo per una coppia o un viaggiatore singolo che ama la privacy.
    Perfect Location, very close to Jordaan, The room is clean and very nice, bathoroom is new and extremely clean. Hosts are very respectful of your privacy but at the same time kind and welcoming. In the room you can find a kettle, so you can enjoy a coffee or the to have your rest. Perfect for a couple or a single who loves privacy.

  • We had a wonderful 2 nights at this apartment. So nice to arrive to a bottle of red wine. The room is a very good size, the bed was very comfy, the bathroom is luxurious (power shower and a separate bathtub all new!) and so nice to have a hairdryer, towels and toiletries provided. Very quiet apartment, very close to lots of local bars, restaurants and cafes. Our hosts did not disturb us at all, and trusted us with our own key. Amsterdam is beautiful, this is a very safe and friendly area, we walked home through Jordaan at night and it was so lovely and romantic. Thank you! Rifa and Chris x

  • Georg's place was an excellent find. Tucked in a lovely street with a wonderful cafe on the corner, the room was cosy, very comfortable, with a modern bathroom and and clean. Georg was very friendly and his tips for bike hire was great too. Antonio and I would recommend Georg's room to anyone looking for a place in Amsterdam. Thank you.

  • The location is fantastic. The 20 minutes walk between Georg's home and centrum is very enjoyable. Lots of shops and restaurants are there. The room and the bathroom are spacious and clean. Georg and Heleen are very friendly. It was my first airbnb booking which was a very good experience. I will book the room again for my next trip to Amsterdam.

  • Georg é um excelente anfitrião, muito atencioso e pronto para ajudar. O apartamento em sim é ótimo e a localização é excelente.

  • Georg's house was very nice and spacious. The bathroom was in excellent conditions and definitely better than anything you would get in a hotel for the same price. Georg was extremely polite to us and the beds were quite comfortable. It is a very well located place too, being that the centraal station is only 3 minutes away by bus 48.
    I do have some remarks to make: The wifi on the bottom floor (where our room was located) does not have a very strong signal. Sometimes we had a hard time accessing the internet. Our cel phones barely got any signal and through our laptops the internet would constantly disconnect. However, I am sure this is something that is easily fixed by Georg. We didn't really tell him about this during our stay because it did not bother us that much. Whoever stays in this room must also keep in mind that you can hear footsteps from the floor upstairs. This did not bother us as much because Georg and his family were considerate enough to not make noise when it was late. However, it is still something to keep in mind.
    Overall, this is a great place to stay at and I would definitely recommend it!

  • We had a nice stay in Georg's room which is well located within walking distance from the train station and places we wanted to visit.
    The bathroom is great and the room large enough for two people to relax and have a glass of wine or cup of tea after a day in the city.
    The local café Mads, just round the corner is great, welcoming and not expensive. It is a very good place to stay for a weekend in Amsterdam.
    Very good little cinéma "Movies" and plenty of nice little restaurants in Haarlemstraat nearby.
    Slight problems with the heating to start with, which fortunately got fixed...

  • The room was very nice, and Georg and Helen were very sympathic with us. If we come back in Amsterdam we would definitely chose this room again ! We recomand it !

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.
