Hi Paul, Thanks for your sterling review of the apartment and the city environs.

I was keen to know what you started to resent as your review fell short of explanation. John

If you are looking to soak in the night life in Amsterdam, John's place is in the center of it all. The apartment gets full of natural light in the day and it makes you appriciate your surroundings. There are about 3 flights of stairs to reach the apartment.
