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 neighborhood is often called Cartier Latin: it is a melting pot of many cultures with many different cuisines: Dutch, Italian, Turkish, Arabian, Italian, Ethiopian, South American, Indonesian, Thai, you name it, it is all with a minutes available.

Also around the corner the biggest out market of Amsterdam; the Albert Cuyp where you can buy everything. Museum quarter 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.

Interaction with Guests
Closer to the date of your arrival we will tell you where you can find the keys or who is going to hand over the keys.Dotti and her daughter live downstairs, you can ask them for assistance when available. We although appreciate each others privacy and we will not interfere.
Amsterdam is a small city, the best way to experience it is to walk. Personally I don't like tourists on bikes, we are fast and routine d bike riders, usually tourist are slow and wandering around and that makes the situation extremely dangerous!
Other Things to Note
If you want to book for a shorter period than three days, this is only possible when there is that precise gab on the Calender.
We like you to leave the room as clean as you found it, we don't mind smokers as long as they open the windows for fresh air. Gas and electricity is expensive so please turn of the heating system when you're out. People from some Nationalities open the windows together with the heather, for us that is the same as throwing money out of the window!
About the Host, Dotti
Hi, I live with my daughter (20) downstairs, the studio's are on the first floor and on the top level. Since I run the studio's I look at my city in a more critical way and still I have to admit: it is beautiful, with all the history and its hidden secrets. Together with my colleague I have just written a booklet about Amsterdam in English for all foreign visitors. We are united in spots 2 b as a company now. In leisure time I like running along the river in the morning and I play tennis. I love cooking, eating, traveling, reading and listening to music. And I like talking with my visitors about Amsterdam and the rest of the world.
