  • I stayed here for a week, and Olga was a great host. She was very responsive, and even made sure to send a message to see how things were a few days in to my stay. Since I couldn't give an exact arrival time, she made it very simple to retrieve the key, which I really appreciated. The room was exactly as described. It's a simple, peaceful space to stay- an ideal base for a busy tourist! I just wanted something comfortable and well-located, and that's what it was. And the location is the best part. It's just a short walk from several central neighborhoods and attractions- but somehow it is also peaceful and quiet. Also, Olga's guide and recommendations were spot on! Thanks to Olga for helping make it a great trip to an amazing city.

  • Nice quiet neighbourhood, everything you need. Great location!

  • This is a great spot in a very central location. Complete privacy, as the bedroom and bath have their own entrance separate from the main apartment. Olga was super accommodating and helpful. Definitely recommend!

  • Olga has been a great host. Communication was very good and she replied very fast to all of our questions. Olga lives next door so it is no problem for her to hand over the key.

    The room is small but clean and most importantly the location is perfect for a city trip to Amsterdam. Everything is in walking distance: tons of restaurants and bars, the Vondelpark and the shopping district.

    It is very easy to reach Olga's apartment from the airport by taking bus #197 from the airport to Leidseplein which will cost you 5 Euros. From there it's a ten minute walk to the apartment.

    If I had to criticize anything it would be the poor wifi-connection which is only enough to check you emails once in a while. But there might have been something wrong with the network. It wasn't important to us so we didn't bother to ask Olga. And keep the windows shut to avoid the mosquitos from coming in...

    Other than that, we had a great couple of days in Amsterdam. Go there and enjoy yourself.

  • We spent a fantastic extended weekend in Olga's studio. It's quiet, clean and really cozy. The location is just splendid, whether you want to take walks along the canals, go to the museums or party - everything is just a few steps away.
    We did not get to meet Olga in person, but the logistics of the stay, i.e. instructions, getting the keys etc. went perfectly smooth. As mentioned in other guests' comments, the wifi does tend to be patchy at times, but that's a really minor thing. Overall a great place to stay!

  • Although we did not met her personally, Olga had organized everything well and flexible. If you are looking for a quiet and comfortable place to stay, especially when you want to visit the famous museums (Stedelijk- Van Gogh- Rijks-Museum) or visit the Concertgebouw, Olgas apartment is a good choice.

  • We had a great stay at Olga's place! Very good communication, leaving us lots of hints and tips, perfect location!
    The place itself was clean and tidy, well done! Just worths mention it's a cozy yet private small suite. If you're looking for a good place to rest from the bike rides while visiting the town, you're in the right listing!
    Thanks, Olga!

  • Really small, no kitchen but an awesome place to stay! Really close to the heart of Amsterdam but quite a walk from the main railway station. We really enjoyed our time at the apartment and Olga was nice too.

  • We loved our stay at Olga's apartment!! It was perfect for us! The one con is the wifi didn't work on my phone in the apartment (quite a small con really). That aside, you WILL NOT find a better location! This place is right in the centre of everything, and still really quiet while sleeping at night. There isn't a kitchen orTV, but you are in AMSTERDAM! Get outside, hire a bike, see the best museums in the world and cruise the rivers :) will stay here again!
