The Space

PLEASE NOTE: you can directly submit a booking request. For availability and prices please check the calendar tab.

I update the calendar on regular base and I try to block the days in advance for which I am living there myself, as much as possible. I am sorry if your choice is not available.
As central as you can get, in the heart of Amsterdam, close to central station and 5 minutes walking distance to Dam Square, the main shopping area and the historical canals, you will find this compact and cosy studio/apartment build during the golden age in 1650.

In the bedroom you will find a 2 person (king size) bed, and in the living area a comfortable 2 person sofa bed.

The studio is equipped with a nice kitchen, with all kitchen utensils, including a dishwasher, fridge, a big oven, an espresso/milk foam machine, nespresso cups/tea/sugar/coffee milk

In the bathroom there is a washer & tumble dryer, an iron - board, hair dryer, a rain shower and a toilet.

There is free wifi available and digital TV with lots of international channels.

There are many restaurants, bike rentals and supermarkets in the area.

Because the studio is only a 7 minutes walk from central station, you can save money on public transport or cabs.

Clean linen/towels/coffee/tea/soap/shampoo are provided.

*The minimum stay for the studio is 2 nights, but in some cases you can also book it for just one night (except during weekends).

**The standard check in time is 3pm and the standard check out time 11am. I always try to be flexible if there is a possibility.

*** I don't charge cleaning costs. I do expect my guests to leave the place reasonably clean. If you wish to leave it a mess then I will charge €25,- for the cleaning which will be kept from the deposit.

During Dutch daytime, I normally reply within an hour.

Other Things to Note

€15 for check in after 6pm, to be payed cash at the person that checks you in. Please communicate your time of arrival and update us if you have a delay. My friend will wait up to one hour, after that the €15 rate will apply for each hour that he has to wait, with a maximum of 3 hours. If you have a check in before 6 pm and you arrive more than an hour late, €12.50 per hour will be charged for every hour that me or my colleague has to wait. To avoid this costs please let us know in advance if you wish to check in later.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We stayed three nights in the studio of Chris and we were very satisfied. The studio is very central and offers all amenities for a comfortable stay. The studio was very clean and we were welcomed by Angelo. Linen, towels, kitchen and bathroom are of very high quality. Only small thing we missed was some information what/how to recycle... . Thanks for this nice stay.

  • Chris is a thoughtful host who replied swiftly to my messages. The apartment is a short walk to Jordaan which was a lovely area with lots of nice cafes and restaurants. A little noisy on weekend nights but ear plugs are provided. Very well appointed apartment and had the supplies for cooking/washing. We were 3 and enjoyed it very much! Thanks Chris!

  • We had a very good experience with the host and accommodations in Amsterdam. We were delayed in our arrival and the host friend, Angelo stayed and waited until our arrival. The apartment was spacious and very well kept. It had plenty of storage space and linen for our use and comfort. We appreciated in kitchen and the laundry facilities as well. The location was terrific and everything was within walking distance. The only caution for those traveling with small children is that Amsterdam is a city of tolerance and you will get some exposure to the red light activity although the apartment is not directly in the red light district. Despite this, we felt safe and secure in our accommodation. Thank you Chris and Angelo for a great stay.

  • Our experience as a group of 4 staying in Chris' apartment was fantastic. The location is great, next to a supermarket, shops, and dam square, and although the place is on the edge of the red light district, we had no disturbances and did not feel uncomfortable. Chris thought of everything that a group of travelers might need: there were extra towels, sheets, a washing machine/dryer, and decent wifi, to name a few of the luxuries. At times, the apartment felt stuffy, but a group of 4 is manageable as long as the pull out bed is put away during the day. Check in/out was easy and we were able to check in earlier than usual due to Chris' flexibility. My biggest regret is not staying in Amsterdam longer. I would recommend staying here without a doubt!

  • We had an amazing time in Amsterdam and loved this apartment! It was beautiful, very comfortable and clean, in a great location and was exactly what we hoped it would be. We were walking or biking distance from everything we wanted to see, and the surrounding streets are very nice. Chris was very kind and very communicative and was a great host. Thank you so much!

  • Super appartement très bien placé en ville, nous avons tout visité à pied et en vélo. Appartement au rez de chaussée correspondant aux photos, je recommande fortement.

  • We had an excellent stay during our four nights in Amsterdam! The apartment overall was clean, inviting, and comfortable. Chris provided all of the amenities needed: a soft bed, clean bathroom with extra towels, washing machine, kitchenware, dishwasher, wifi, TV, etc. A map of the city is also provided to help navigate around Amsterdam.
    The apartment is located in the center of the city and within close proximity to the train station, tram stop, restaurants, canals, and key attractions like the Red Light District and Anne Frank House.
    Although Chris himself was unable to receive us when we arrived, he arranged to have his friend check us in and welcome us. Chris was very responsive to messages and a very helpful host. We would definitely stay here again.

  • We had a very enjoyable stay in Chris's apartment. It is comfortable and situated in a convenient location. It was a pleasure dealing with Chris and his friend Angelo who met us on our arrival and we would certainly be happy to visit again.

My name is Chris. Like most people on this site I really enjoy travelling around the globe and to discover new places. Besides that I enjoy cooking, hiking and long cycling tours. I am a host of a nice studio/apartment in the city centre of Amsterdam, close to Dam Square, the main shopping area and just around the corner of the beautiful historical canals.
