1 (maybe 2 people, but first have to set rules because of previous noise-problems) person studio appartment (45m2). Clean and fresh, located perfectly. Well equiped, small kitchen. Bathroom, relaxroom with a view.

Walking distance to basically everything in Amsterdam. Next to famous Vondelpark (literally 15 meter away). 10 mins walk from Leidse square, 10 mintes walk to Rijksmuseum, 12 minute walk to van gogh museum...

Bike rental around the corner. easily Reachable (car, train, bus, tram, metro, bike). Very nice and safe neighbourhood. 1 minute from supermarket, many restaurants close by.

You can expect great value for money. All guests up until now said they would rent again for sure.

Included:
*WIFI
*TV
*Cooking equipment
*Linnen

Questions, let me know, i'll be glad to help out.

  • The location for this apartment is perfect! Two minutes from the park, shops, restaurants and supermarkets but still quiet, private and peaceful. Twenty minute walk to the city centre and right next to the bus and tram stops if you don't fancy the walk.

    Nice clean, comfortable apartment although the bathroom is more of a walk in cupboard rather than an actual room which isn't obvious on the photographs. At the time of our visit there was only a hob to cook on. The microwave was missing and the toaster kept short circuiting the entire apartment if we tried to us it. However we weren't there to cook a la carte meals and there are tons of lovely cafes and restaurants all close by. Otherwise the apartment was well equipped.

    Floor is extremely helpful and friendly and his offer to pick us up from the airport and take us to the apartment himself was much appreciated and made our arrival relatively stress free.

    One disadvantage was that there were no curtains at the back of the flat which is very closely overlooked by the surrounding apartments. This meant we could see into everyone else's apartments and they could see straight into our kitchen, bathroom and sleeping area - some interesting moments arose! However I understand this was a temporary situation following on from redecorating after a flood.

    The apartment is partly furnished with furniture that belonged to Floor's grandmother who used to live in the flat. I really liked this and it made the apartment more quirky and interesting but I think some people may not appreciate this touch.

  • It has been great staying at the same place where I used to live 20 years ago. The area has remained the same: a great spot, right at the Vondelpark and close to numerous nice restaurants and cafés. The apartment has everything for a relaxed and comfortable stay. Floor is a great host and easy to communicate with!

  • Nos quedamos con prima 4 noches y la verdad que nos encantó el departamento. Está re bien ubicado, al lado del Vondelpark y en 10 min del centro en tranvía (la estación está a 1 cuadra y lleva directo al centro). El depto es muy amplio, super luminoso y está en una zona re tranquila. Sin dudarlo lo volveríamos a reservar

  • Floor's appartment was wonderful, very good location near Vondel Park, well-equipped, clean and cosy. There is a lot of shops and cafees near appartment, so there is no problem to buy food or to visit restraunt not far from flat. The tram stop is 1 minute walking and you can get to the city center for 10 minutes by tram. Floor was very nice , comunicating and welcoming host, so I'd reccomend this appartment to stay!

  • Floor's apartment was great for our visit to Amsterdam, it backs onto Vondelpark which is a lovely space for relaxing and taking in Amsterdam. I would definitely recommend hiring bikes and using them to get around (takes less than 10 minutes to ride into the city). Floor was very welcoming and stayed in touch throughout our stay. The apartment itself has most you will need, the bed was pretty comfortable, the internet was fast and having cable TV was a bonus. The kitchen was reasonably well equipped however I wouldn't recommend trying to cook anything too complicated in it, we mainly used it for breakfast and lunches. You will need to be relatively quiet throughout your stay because apparently the neighbour below isn't the nicest, however throughout our week long stay we did not see them once. Overall, I would recommend this as an affordable apartment to anyone wanting to explore Amsterdam.

  • We had a great time in Floor's Amsterdam apartment. This spacious and clean apartment comprises three rooms - a front sitting room with a TV, a central living room with sofa bed and desk, and a kitchen with small bathroom/wetroom. We were provided with everything we needed for a comfortable stay - clean sheets & towels, cooking equipment, fast wireless internet and cable television. Floor was even kind enough to provide a welcome bottle of wine. The apartment is located just outside of the city centre, but in a lovely area right next to the Vondelpark and surrounded by shops, cafes and restaurants without the tourist price tag. You can get around easily by foot, or you can catch Tram line 1 (which runs from the main street around the corner) straight into the city. Throughout our stay, Floor was communicative and welcoming. Will definitely be back!

  • Had an amazing time at Floor's place. The location right beside Vondelpark is wonderful, the apartment is really well-equipped and has everything you need. Floor couldn't be more helpful, and we'll definitely stay here again when next in Amsterdam.

  • We spent a great time in Amsterdam and the apartment was really comportable, clean, perfect! It's even better than on the photos.The place is right next to the Vonderpark and It's really pleasant to go to the city center through the park by foot (10-15 minutes) or by direct train. Floor is a very nice and intelligent host. I'd recommend this apartment!

  • Great little (actually, not that little) apartment, right next to Vondelpark. I was in Amsterdam for ADE, and this was the perfect place to chill after the parties. Very comfy sofa bed, two people can stay there easily. I's about 10-15 min walk to Leidseplein and easy enough to get everywhere else, either by foot or by tram. Floor was a great host, picked me up from the airport and drove to the apartment, also installed wi-fi and an LCD TV just before my visit, so it had everything I needed! The only minus was a bit of a noise from the neighbour upstairs, but I only noticed it during the day, when I was trying to sleep after a big night out, so it's not a big deal, really. :) I'd definitely stay here again.

  • Perfect location, Vondelpark on the doorstep, a tram stop 2 mins away. A lovely little place, lovely and clean. Everything you need for a short break. I'd highly recommend it!
