About this listing
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), 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, bars, bakery and a bike rental just 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, coffeebars and hotspots. So you’ll get a local Amsterdam experience!

About the Host, Gerard

As my girlfriend and I like to travel we know how important a room & host can be making your trip complete. Last summer we renovated and redecorated our attic and got excited about creating a perfect place to stay.
