We can't extend our thanks enough to Marieke, for our fantastic stay in Amsterdam! Marieke and her partner welcomed us with a cup of tea and kind chat about the best places to visit. The studio is clean and cosy, and perfect for a short break and the little shop downstairs is great for snacks and drinks. We loved our time in Amsterdam! Thank you :-)
Hi ! We really enjoyed our stay at Mariekes studio! Its really cozy and you have everything you need!!! Also we really liked the neighborhood, is not so tourist and you have lots of cool places to go !! The bikes are really nice, and its a very good opportunity to see the city from another perspective and speed!
The recommendations of Marieke were wonderful.
I highly recommend to go to Mariekes!
Marieke was the perfect host. She pointed out some of her favourite spots on a map she gave us over some lovely tea when we arrived, which was hugely appreciated. The studio is small but perfectly formed and the balcony was a real bonus. We didn't use the bikes as we're a bit bike shy, but it only took twenty minutes to walk into the city centre. Saying that, we loved the area of the studio so much, after sight seeing, we always headed back there for dinner and drinks. Would absolutely stay here again.
Our stay at Mariekes Studio was great! She is really a lovely host and lets you feel like at home in Amsterdam.
If you are in search of a little nice apartment with a lot of cool details (the book of the neighborhood, the nespresso machine, the interesting photos on the walls,...) you should choose this studio :-)

Really pleasant studio, well decorated and furnished. The bed is more than comfortable, the shower / toilettes are clean and brand new.
Moreover, Marieke is a fantastic host : she gave us many advises on places to go and on what to do to spend a really Dutch journey !
We definitely enjoyed our stay there !!!!
Just a perfect experience in Amsterdam thanks to the perfect location, the warmest welcome, the homemade guide illustrated with beautiful pictures, AND the bikes, which are just the best ways to sweep around the city like crazy! Bedankt voor alles eens meer, ik zal zeker terugkomen volgende keer ;)
Great time! Glad we had bikes to get around town. Loved the market right outside your front door. Great way to experience the city!
Marieke est une super hôte et le séjour a été très agréable ! Elle nous a accueilli autour d'un thé et nous a donné plein d'informations utiles pour visiter la ville. Les vélos sont très utiles et permettent de visiter la ville facilement. L'appartement est chaleureux et confortable, rien ne manque ! Sa localisation est pratique: rapidement dans le centre que ce soit en vélo ou en tram. Nous avons passé un super nouvel an !
Me and my boyfriend stayed in Marieke place for 4 nights and we loved the time we spent there! Marieke was a great host! As we arrived she helped us with a lot of great tips during a lovely tea chat. The studio is great, has everything we need. The bike was a really nice extra as we could enjoy the city as real locals. The location is good, close and ith easy access to the city center. I'm only sorry that I couldn't use the balcony since rained a lot when we were there! Maybe in another visit during summer time. Be prepare for the staircases! Specially if you like me have a lot of luggage... A great and real Amsterdam place to be.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Amsterdam! The city is breathtakingly beautiful and the people are extraordinarily friendly. Marieke was a spectacular host: she welcomed us with tea and gave us a map of the city, on which she highlighted the places we wanted to go and explained the best routes to explore. Moreover, the studio apartment was awesome. We had a nice sense of privacy, having the fourth floor of the building to ourselves, and loved spending time on the balcony.
Whether we rode bikes, took the tram, or walked, with Marieke's advice, navigating the city was a breeze. The studio is in a nice part of town surrounded by rich culture and great food; the fact that it is located a few kilometers west of Dam square allowed us to take in the picturesque views along the canals as we made our way through the city.
We hope you will stay with Marieke the next time you visit Amsterdam!
