We are very happy to welcome you in Amsterdam!
You’ll find our cozy attic room in the Plantage Area, nearby Artis Zoo. This area is loved because it's nice and quiet but still in the center of Amsterdam. The attic is on the third flour of a typically 19th century Amsterdam house with a canal view. The room is just renovated.
The room is spacious and bright. It has a private entrance, one double bed, a dinner table with chairs, two sofa-chairs, a clothing rack, audio system (for Iphone/Ipod), tv with DVD player, free Wifi, travel books (inlcluding Lonely Planet of the Netherlands) and a map of Amsterdam. There is a Nespresso coffee machine and watercooker to make your own coffee or tea. The room is the only one on the 3th flour and is situated at the back of the house, so it’s very quit to have a good sleep! Of course we provide clean sheets and towels.
Downstairs on the second floor you can find the toilet, kitchen (with oven, fridge, microwave and dishwasher) and a bathroom (with bathtub, separate shower and two sinks). These you share with us, your hosts. You don’t have to pass our living, so you still have your privacy. Everything is just renovated.
The apartment is very central located, just a short tram or metro ride from central station. Many famous spots are just a short walk away; Waterloo Square (where you can rent bikes), Rembrandt square, the canals, Hermitage Museum, Brouwerij t IJ (the only windmill in town), Hortus Botanicus, a few museums and the Skinny Bridge. There are many nice restaurants around the corner.
Our favorite site just a few minutes walk away: the view on the 'Skinny Bridge'. Walking around there gives you a very nice view on all the 17th century built houses and the open water. Still very romantic every time we walk there by night.
Furthermore, we love Amsterdam and would like to share our favorite restaurants, bars, cafes, clubs and spots. So you’ll get a local Amsterdam experience!
Suitable for 1-2 persons.
We had a great time in this cosy and cool attic room! Apartment is located in very nice district, easy reachable even without bikes or public transport (around 10-15 min to central station). Flat itself is very nice and clean and we especially liked the fact that room is located in the attic, so we had more than enough privacy. Gerard and Tjarda are very friendly and welcoming hosts! Overall, we had a perfect experience and can definitely recommend this place!
Thanks a lot!
We had a really nice time in this cozy, quiet and warm appartment.
The location is ideal : away from the busy centre but not too far : 10 min walks and 2 min ride (which is the best way to move in Amsterdam)
Thanks again for the warm welcome and the tips.
Gerard and Tjarda are really friendly and uncomplicated hosts. Gerard for example gave us a good tip for a cycling tour.
The apartment is lovely and cozy – it was always nice returning there after an exhausting day in the city. The room is located in the roof so you have your privacy (only disadvantage: to use the bathroom and kitchen you need to climb the steep stairs every time…)
All in all we really felt at home and we can totally recommend this apartment if you’re looking for a place to stay in Amsterdam!
My boyfriend and I had a great stay in Gerard and Tjarda's cosy attic room. It is just as nice as it looks in the pictures, nice and warm and really central walk to anywhere.
Gerard and Tjarda are really lovely and give good advice about where to go and what to do (PizzaBakker's and the Noordermarkt were great - thanks!!)
We would definitely recommend this place!
We had a really great weekend staying in Gerard and Tjarda's apartment, they are very helpful hosts. The room was comfortable, spacious and warm! And the rest of the apartment was clean and modern. The area was also perfect for us, as it was close to the centre but away from the busyness and noise.
Great place to stay.
We stayed with Gerard and Tjarda for 4 days and we really loved everything about our accommodation. They are very friendly, pleasant people. We especially liked their recommendations on what to do in Amsterdam, as well as their ability to make guests feel welcomed and appreciated. We can recommend this wonderful accommodation to everyone. It's quiet, very central and with truly beautiful furniture and a great view. The bed is confortable and that you live in the attic of a very pretty, typical Amsterdam house makes it even more perfect.
Pasamos unos días maravillosos en Ámsterdam, Gerard y Tjarda nos trataron muy bien. La casa esta céntrica puedes ir andando al centro o en tranvía en muy pocas paradas. La habitación es independiente al piso y muy cómoda. En definitiva muy recomendable.
Gerard and his wife are really nice hosts. The room is stylish and seperate from the appartment, also it's quiet. It can get e little bit cold in wintertime, but there is a heater and we didn't care. There is a TV with movies, a coffe mashine and tea. So everything is really perfect and central. See you next time in Amsterdam. Thanks again
Gerard and Tjarda are wonderful hosts and the room is as nice and stylish as in the pictures. Their apartment is located in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood, yet close to everything. If you ever need a place to stay in Amsterdam, I would definitely recommend it!
Very nice people and accommodations! Nice city!
