About This Listing
In the heart of the city, in a surprisingly peaceful and green neighbourhood lies this gorgeous, spacious apartment, 90 square metres (=approximately 970 square feet). Built in 1886, the apartment has been completely renovated up to modern standards, with respect for the historical details, just this year. The whole house is an official Monument. The unique combination of old school charm and 21st centrury comfort in this apartment will please you.
The apartment has a modern kitchen, cable television (featuring over 200 major international stations), fast wifi, jacuzzi, washing machine and dryer. It has a marvelous view on the Amsterdam Royal Zoo and lies in a street with several cafe's and restaurants, which offer a wide range of options for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
I will be happy to point you to places of interest. Withing walking distance from the apartment lie the Hortus Botanicus, the Jewish Historical Museum, the Amsterdam Hermitage Museum, the Rembrant House, the National Maritime Museum, the Opera, the Red Light District, and many more points of interest.
Famous areas nearby for nightlife are popular Rembrandtplein and trendy Nieuwmarkt. You'll find more quiet and upmarket options along the Amstel River.
Closeby options for kids: the Zoo and its playgrounds, the 'kids paradise' TunFun, and Nemo Science Museum for Children.
Tram and subway are nearby. From Amsterdam Central Station, tram 9 will take you to 100 metres from this apartment (get off at stop "Zoo").
Also, since Amsterdam is the world's biking capital, bikes may be the fastest and most flexible way to get around. I will be happy to point you towards several close by bike rental places.
i don't have many rules. The apartment is set up in such a way that I do not need to have many rules. You can smoke on the ballcony, which is completely rain free.
I have done many home swaps with my own apartment, where I live, so I am very used to acepting guests and I have severla maps and other information of interesteting things in the neighborhood, bike rentals, etc.
Dorine hat mir eine sehr detaillierte Beschreibung der Lage der Wohnung gegeben und wie die Anreise erfolgen kann.
Die Ausstattung der Wohnung ist genau beschrieben und stimmt mit der Realität überein. Sehr nett!!!! Komplett mit allem drum und dran.
Die Wohnung liegt sehr verkehrsgünstig, in der Nähe der Straßenbahnhaltestelle, mit der man in 10 Minuten ins Zentrum fährt.
Verkehrsgünstig bedeutet in diesem Fall nicht laut, sondern in einem ruhigen Wohngebiet gegenüber des Zoo.
Vielen Dank, es war rundrum schön.
Ich kann Dorine als Gastgeberin und die Wohnung sehr empfehlen.
The apartment was really nice to stay at and very easy to get to. There were three of us staying together but it could have fit a couple more if needed. Two rooms with real beds and two full length couches.
Dorine was very great at corresponding prior to our arrival and during our stay. A couple days prior she sent me all the information I needed for the stay and we communicated a lot about directions and she helped me estimate the time it would take from the central train station to her place.
The apt is very close to the metro stop so it was easy to walk to. The apartment is across the street from the zoo which was a good landmark. Occasionally we would hear some animals in the morning but not throughout the night.
I would definitely recommend this place to stay for anyone traveling to Amsterdam.
4 giorni trascorsi splendidamente. Amsterdam ci è piaciuta moltissimo e l'appartamento di Dorine ha fatto la sua parte. Il salone è davvero molto bello, la cucina fornita di tutto l'occorrente. Le camere soffrono un po il confronto con il salone. Il bagno è grande e funzionale. Non è proprio in centro ma in 10/15 minuti a piedi oppure 5 min in bicicletta siamo già nella nieuw markt. Se siete in famiglia con dei bambini non lasciatevi sfuggire il parco "Artis" che si trova proprio di fronte al l'appartamento.
Great flat, really comfortable and host could not have done more to accommodate us :)
A spaceous, beautifully furnished apartment in a very quite environment, offering everything needed to spend amazing holidays in a fantastic city! Though we haven't met out host personally, the communication was very friendly, easy-going and informative. Thanks, Dorine, for your trust and friendliness!
We had an excellent time in Dorine's house, the best place to stay in Ámsterdam. Well located, beautiful and perfect for a group of 4-6 people.

About the Host, Dorine
I am a tax lawyer, living in Amsterdam with my two daughters Florence and Josephine. Have just incorporated my own tax advisory firm ((website hidden)). Love to drink wine, play tennis, cook, hang out with my friends. I have studied at the University of Amsterdam and know the city by heart.
I have done a fair amount of home swaps and discovered AirBNB when I went on a biking holiday and wanted to spend a few days in Copenhagen.
The apartment that I rent out is filled with American and Uk literature.
My most favourite city is New York, but I also love Helsinki and Barcelona.
