  • The apartment is in a very nice neighborhood, it might look a bit far on the map, but in fact you can walk to the center or take a tram, both ways, it doesn't take too much time. It has everything you need and I loved it that Ashley sent us an email with very structured and detailed instructions on everything we need to know about the apartment, neighborhood and the city. It was very convenient. If you need a place to stay in Amsterdam, this is definitely a good choice.

  • Apartamento genial para nuestas necesidades! Bien conectado con el aeropuerto y a un golpe de tranvia del centro. A Ashley no la conocimos personalmente por estar de viaje pero el trato previo vía mail fue perfecto. Nos recibió su vecino a la hora pactada. Tambien pudimos guardar en su apartamento las maletas hasta la hora de salida del vuelo. Recomendable 100%!
