The blue studio's is one of the three studio's in our house.The Blue studio is situated on the third floor ( 48 steps high) and faces the backcourtyard of the whole neighbourhood. Right downstairs you can see my garden with my chooks and cat being busy with their lives. Blue is a private room with its own little kitchen and bathroom. It is not a fancy room but is has all the basics it needs and it is clean and tidy. In blue you'll wake up with the birds, no citynoice.
Our neighbourhood is often called Cartier Latin: it is a meltingpot of many cultures with many different cuisines: Dutch, Italian, Turkish, Arabean, Italian, Ethiopean, South American, Indonesian, Thai, you name it, it is all with a minutes available.
Also a great choise of supermarkets in the area open untill 10 pm and after there are other shops open untill after midnight.
Cinema is around the corner, as well as a bicycle rent as well as public transport, I have the cheapest public transportcarts here waiting for you, so don't buy anything expensive at the airport or station.
Also around the corner the biggest outmarket of Amsterdam; the Alebert Cuyp where you can buy everything. Museumcuarter is here, as well as the Rai.
Amsterdam is a small city, you can reach everything by feet and walking is the best way to explore the city.
Recently I wrote a guide, it is called: spots2B Amsterdam and it is written in English. It has six walking itineraries in it with lots of ideas for good spots with the variety of: historical, cultural, shops, soft drugs, music, food & drinks, outgoing, beautiful places, things to do and free concerts. I have put a few photo's of it on my listing. It will be waiting for you at your arrival.
Dotti's Blue Studio and entire house was the perfect location for my first trip to Amsterdam. The neighborhood was extremely accessible to the rest of the city, and my roommate and I were always so excited to not only take on the city by day, but know we had a place that felt like home to go to at night. The bed was unbelievably comfortable and the studio was perfect. Great windows, and decoration. If I was to come to Amsterdam again, I'd hope that the studio was open!
Dotti studio is great! Well equiped kitchen, nice view, big bathroom and now there is a new lcd tv diferent from the one in the pictures. Dotti is also really nice and as long as you need her she well be helpfull. The only thing that i dislike was the internet conection that was really unstable, it went on and off several times. But the studio is just amazing, nice neighborhood with restaurants and markets close by foot and easy acess to the other city areas by tram.
Dotti fue una excelente anfitriona. Desde el primer día respondió todas nuestras consultas y nos recibió tal cual habíamos acordado. Además, nos recomendó lugar para visitar y comer, y nos regaló una de sus guías de Amsterdam que tiene mucha información. Muchas gracias Dotti!
Dotti was an excellent hostess. From day she answered all our questions and we were greeted as such we agreed. In addition, she recommended some places to visit and eat, and gave us one of her Amsterdam guide which has a lot of information. Thank you Dotti!
We had a great stay in the blue studio. The Pijp area of Amsterdam is such a great area of the city! Dorthe was so helpful and friendly, and the book that she lent us (that she wrote!) was really great.
Dotti is really nice host!
The flat is incredible, is not in the center of amsterdam, but that is great, because you can go everywhere by walking, and also you can rest from the living night always.
She was really nice, and help us with everything!, the flat was just for us, really quiet and clean.
The apartment is in a great neighbourhood. The studio is small but has a large washroom. The kitchen is well stocked so we were able to make ourselves breakfast every morning. Dottie responded to all our e-mails immediately. We rented bikes from a place just down the street for several days and would encourage anyone visiting the city to do the same. There is a fine jazz club just up the street and many good restaurants in the area.Overall a good experience.
We stayed for 3 days in the blue (website hidden) was fantastic.We had all what we needed.The apartment is close to the city.There are good restaurants and cafes around.Dottis friend Theresa was very kind and helpful.We enjoyed our stay...
My boyfriend and I planned a nice trip to Amsterdam for the new year and booked to stay at Dotti's apartment. Our first Airbnb booking. We got there from Central Station with perfect instructions and were both greeted by the cleaner who was warm, welcoming and showed us how to use everything. There was a map and a book of Dotti's that welcomed us to the area which we used throughout the trip; Super helpful! The bed was super comfortable and there were little bits and bobs around that were much needed. Things like coffee, tea bags, shower gel etc. When trams weren't running, we were able to walk back to the apartment from Dam square with no issues whatsover. The apartment is in the middle of shops, markets and is a 2-3 minute walk to the trams taking you into town. We had a wonderful stay and I will indeed be coming back to stay in this apartment again!!
Had an excellent stay, Dotti was a generous and knowledgable host and the studio was clean and well located with everything you need. The location was great, the park across the road was excellent for morning walks/runs and it was really close to the trams but also close enough to walk everywhere in the city. We easily walked to Dam square and museumplein for example. The kitchen, bed, heating, wi-fi and cable tv were all great, we didn't have a problem at all.
Dotti was very attentive and kind, comunication was great. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. Also the location is nice, we barely used trams. Definitely recommend it!!
