Description

Just west of the Centre, it's a most strategic, well connected place to be, right across Westerpark, in walking distance from the historic centre, in a monument (atmosphere) on a quiet interior square. The well equipped loft apt. is a castle for 2, but can easily accommodate 4 guests. It is LGBT and Child- friendly!

Pleasantly Open and Spacious place due to the height (5.80 Mtr./19 feet), with Entresol /Mezzanine, yet a secluded and Intimate apartment. This National Monument's interior (industrial heritage 1900s) was completely renovated in 1997. The formerly 'office only' space has been redone for residency. Great place to have special meetings as well, has good energy for work & study also. Now furnished and well equipped to serve as a nice quiet home for guests staying a couple of days (tourist visit) up to several weeks for a project, or many months (expats, students).

Being located right across the vibrant aliveness of WesterPark and the 'WesterGasFabriek' with its music, dance, theatre, cinema, TV studios, cool hangouts, restaurants, fairs, concerts, workshops, courses & events, and the (1st) Sunday's Market of funky shopping (art & food)...
...this apartment is a surprisingly tranquil place for work and inspiration, rest and recuperation, very private, located in the corner of a friendly & car-free interior square where kids play freely and people go meet in the nearby Café Amsterdam for breakfast, lunch, a drink or a nice dinner.

The small bathroom (shower & toilet) was recently improved & updated. (A natural stone sill now channels well to water drainage). You'll find a magnifying mirror to shave, complementary shampoo, shower gel, soap and a hairdryer for your convenience. House shoes or slippers too. (bathrobes on request).

The small open kitchen was recently updated; it now has everything you need for breakfast lunch & dinner (refrigerator-minifreezer, microwave-oven-grill, induction plate, blender, coffeemakers, toaster, waterkettle, sandwichmaker, egg-boiler, crockery and cutlery, glasses, lots of kitchen-tools, salt & pepper mill, oil & vinegar, bowl for salads, etc.).
Several supermarkets, bakery & fresh produce stores are only a short walk away. Lots of fun places to eat close by as well.

Monthly rate(s) on request: discounted according to length of stay.
Used by 2 persons it's luxury, yet the apartment can quite comfortably accommodate 4 people.
Additional cost for extra guest: € 20/night (after first 2 guests)

Total privacy! Private entrance, the spiral staircase leads to loft apartment upstairs (1st floor, under the high roof). No one will disturb you there, so you can stay up late or sleep in until late to rest and recover.

On the loft, up the stairs where the beds are, there's an adventurous detail to be mentioned: one has to sit and step over or swing legs over a beam about as high as a chair (it's part of the monument so cannot be changed), so I'm sorry to say that if you are limited in leg movement, this is not the right place for you (stairs too).

Sleeping arrangements for 4 guests: double bed/lits jumeaux can be split in 2 singles plus 2 sofabeds (1 on loft, 1 in below in living).
For 4+ families or friends' reunions: options for possible extra service are sofa bed, airbed, baby-cot.
Your WiFi access is dependable and continuous.

Your host wants you to feel safe, happy and comfortable in her sanctuary, enjoying that wonderful energy in the apartment: your Home-Base during your Amsterdam visit. Lots of info, maps, etc. are provided in the apt.
Your host is always on call: reachable by email, phone & door bell for any info, help, practical questions or suggestions for visits. Specific needs or wishes are filled wherever possible.

This "ECO-quarter" was developed with sustainability in mind, on the original grounds of the former City Water Co. The Cultural events just across in the Westerpark, on the grounds of the former City Gas Company, "WesterGasFabriek" attract many people to the area. Hence a big choice in restaurants, bars, bistros and places to go out to and have fun. Neighborhood shops sell most of all direct needs.

Getting around town is easy: In 15 min. you walk to the historic City Centre either by walking through a great shopping street or by passing the old Jordaan-quarter. Public Transport stops are conveniently right around the corner: bus 21 taking you in 12 min. to Central Station and the strategic tram 10, circling the old historic centre and taking you to all the Museums directly! A € 2,90 ticket is valid for 1 hour on bus, tram, metro.
Check out 'Amsterdam City Card' for reduced 2-7 days public transport.
The quickest and most fun method of transport in the city is the bicycle. You can hire regular city bikes just around the corner for €10 a day.
Car Q-Parking at 100 m. (€30/day) + P-spots on the street (hard to find) are quite expensive! P+R on the Beltway A10 is cheaper (€ 8/day +free bus ticket into town). Near the airport parking is possible for € 50/week.

In case you arrive late, you will always find a basic breakfast supply in the kitchen (tea, coffee, milk, juice/drink, muesli, eggs, butter, crackers, jam, cheese and fresh fruits). In the immediate surroundings you'll find a wide variety of choice in café-bistros and cosy restaurants and in a 10 minute walk to the adjacent Jordaan area there are many more.
