Museum Suite, near Leidse Square

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Overtoom, Amsterdam, North Holland 1054, Netherlands

My 1st-floor apartment is a clean, quiet and comfortable place, it's ideal startingpoint to explore the city. It's situated just around the corner from the wonderful Vondelpark, Amsterdam's largest city park. The Leidseplein is also very near.

The Space

The living room is a sunny space with large windows and a balcony overlooking the Overtoom. There is a comfortable sofa, dining table, and digitalTV, DVDplayer, CDplayer, Ipod docking station. You have full access to wireless internet.
The kitchen is built in American Kitchen-style and fully kitted out with a microwave, oven, gas hob, toaster, Nespressomachine and a brand new dishwasher.
In the spacious Master bedroom in the back of the apartment you'll find a comfortable queen size bed, wash basin, and a small desk. The room has large windows that overlook the neighbours' pretty gardens.
The second bedroom is in the front of the house and also has a queen size bed. I have a baby cot available.
There is a modern bathroom with shower, large wash basin and toilet. The bathroom has comfortable underfloor heating. You'll find a second toilet in a separate room in the corridor. The corridor has a wardrobe where you can easily store your luggage. Bedlinen and towels will be provided. Washing machine/ iron/ ironing board/ hairdryer are all available for use.

Guest Access

You will be having access to your own apartment in the centre of Amsterdam, no shared bedrooms, no shared bathrooms or shared kitchen. The apartment is at the first floor.

Interaction with Guests

I'll be around the house for any questions or assistence but if you prefer to explore the City by yourselves, then you are welcome to. In the apartment you'll find a map with information on the area (things to do, things for childeren, shops, bars, restaurants, rental bikes, et cetera)

The Neighborhood

The neighbourhood Oud West is very laid back. There are heaps of nice shops and the best coffee shop in town is just around the block (Harvest and Company).
There are lots and lots of nice restaurants and bars in the neighbourhood and your host Jessie, who had a restaurant for years, will be very happy to give you advice or directions. If you prefer to stay in, the supermarket is almost next door and open till 22pm (Sundays 10am-20pm). There are several organic shops in the area, as well as designershops, a toy store, bookshops, a beertasting bar, an enormous travelbook store and a lot more that will capture your interest.
Across the street you can rent bikes, carrier bikes and scooters at De Baron/Dutch Bikes. And very conveniently, the public transport stop is right on the doorstep of Museum Suite.

Getting around

Public transport is easy in Amsterdam: there are tram stops all around you wich makes the city easy accessible. The airport is only a short train ride away.

Other Things to Note

Location: you'll find this renovated 60 m2 apartment in a typical Amsterdam building. The Museum Quarter of Amsterdam (The Van Goghmuseum, the recently re-opened Museum for Modern Art (Stedelijk Museum), and the Rijksmuseum) can be reached within 10 minutes walk.
The Leidse Square area, famous for its bars and cafes, the city theatre (Stadsschouwburg), cinemas, heaps of restaurants and nightlife is only a 5-minute stroll from the apartment. From the Leidse Square the Leidse Street takes you to all the big brand shops. The apartment is in a relaxed and quiet area, so it's a great place to escape the crowds. It's very easy to reach the apartment, and it's within walking (and cycling) distance to the heart of the city.

    January 2014
  • We had a great time in Jessie's apartment! Staying there with our 9 month old as former locals, we very much enjoyed the comfortable apartment in the center, with Vondelpark and Leidseplein at walking distance. The kitchen has all you need, the living room is comfortable, the back bedroom is very quiet and spacious, and the apartment was very clean and well heated. Jessie and her family were very helpful, friendly, flexible and easy to reach both before and during the visit! There were even some toys for our little one. Enjoy your stay here!

  • Jessie and her friend were at the apartment when we arrived and made us visit and explain everything related to the place. They were extremely easy to deal with (very "human" and loveable). The apartment was as described on Airbnb and VERY COSY. We even had goodies in the fridge left from them. Our stay there was unbelievable and you CANNOT find a better place; that close to the the center, yet just 1 step off. Thanks again. This was an unforgettable stay.

  • Great overall stay! Apartment is in great condition and in a perfect part of town--close to everything but also in a quiet area with quaint restaurants and cafes. Jessie is very accommodating. Beds are comfortable; kitchen works well; balcony very nice and perfect for 2 people. We would definitely stay again.

  • The apartment is great, exactly as described on the site! Location is perfect, there is a tram stop just in front of the apartment.
    Thank you Jessie!

    September 2013
  • We stayed in Jessie's apartment with our 22-month old daughter, and it was absolutely perfect! Jessie and her family are wonderful hosts, and we had a great time in Amsterdam. The apartment is centrally located, but not in a particularly touristy area, which was so nice. But, we had an easy time walking to parks, museums, and central Amsterdam. Thanks, Jessie, for making our visit to Amsterdam so wonderful!

    August 2013
  • Jessie's place is very much worth to stay in. Everything is perfect in the apartmant. Location is very nice. Recommend this place to anyone.

I ve had a restaurant for years, and so I love food & wine and I like to cook myself. Besides food I'm crazy about film and documentaries, specially on when the subject food ;-). I simply love to go to the cinema, but I go to the theatre as well. I've been traveling throughout Europe, (France, Spain, Italy, England, Ireland) but also South Africa, Australia, Thailand, Indonesia et cetera. My wish is to visit South America. And to explore Mongolia, seems a fascinating and pristine country to me. I sincerely want to make your stay as pleasant as possible, so please let me know what you need. Ofcourse I also want to give you your privacy, so if you don't call me I won't be bothering you.
