A stone's throw from the Sarphatipark , Museum square, the Rai and the Albert Cuyp market , we rent out former student residences for a short period of time, preferably for a minimum of 4 days and a maximum of one month. It involves two large bedroom
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 a great choice of supermarkets in the area open until 10 pm and after there are other shops open until 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 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.
Recently I wrote a guide, it is called: spots2B Amsterdam and it is written in English. It has six cool areas described 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. You can order it together with your booking for 5 euros per book.
Nothing will be shared with others but the staircase. The room is totally private!
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!
Me and my friend had a great stay in Dottis apartment! :)
Also when there were some little problems, Dotti had always a fast solution.
The apartment is not to big, has everything you need and is in a great place.
I can recommend you to stay in Dottis apartment too.
Had a great time at Dotti's apartment, it was ideally located away from the "Disneyland" city centre in a beautiful, green and quiet neighboourhood! There was everything you need for a short stay. Thank you!
Quartiere molto carino. Vicino alla fermata del tram (molto comodo per viaggiare). A due passi da uno splendido parco.
La stanza è peggio di quello che si vede in foto: deludente rispetto alle aspettative anche se confortevole. Letto molle non si dorme benissimo. Bagno trascurato.
Niente da' l'idea di essere perfettamente pulito.
Accoglienza blanda, forse perchè non c'era la proprietaria che ha delegato allla figlia. Niente colazione. Frigo vuoto.
Wi-fi non funzionava al mio arrivo, ma è stato ripristinato.
La stanza è al secondo piano: le scale per arrivarci sono molto ripide in stile olandese.
La fille de Dotti nous accueilli plus tôt que prévu ce qui nous permis de poser nos valises et de commencer notre exploration du quartier. Quartier trés sympa avec tout ce qu'il faut proche (café, restaurants, supermarché, ligne de tram, brasserie heinekein...). On a tout fait à pied.
Le studio est sympa il est conforme aux photos.
Nous avons passé un excellent week end.
(From my parents who actually took the trip as it was a present for them!)
Great location which was easy to find and also close to many museums.
The place was very homely and warm (with a wonderfully comfortable bed!).
Dotti was very friendly and helpful, she actually gave us a guide book she had written which had really interesting walks and, places to eat and drink.
Overall it was a wonderful break in a beautiful city!
My boyfriend and I stayed at Dotti's Studio for 2 nights. The apartment was very clean and exactly as described. Dotti is a very kind host and we had all our privacy. The neighborhood is great and very close to the center. We had an amazing time !!
Our stay with Dotti was wonderful, she was full of information to tell us about the area upon arrival, there was a city map provided in the room that showed you where all the local shops were, the apartment itself was very tidy and had everything we needed from shaving foam to wine glass's Dotti had it all!

Hi, I live with my daughter (16) and a Spanish friend 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.
