This apartment is 60m2/650ft2 and located in a young and up-and-coming area of Amsterdam: "the world's smallest metropolis"! Shops, public transport, trendy bars and restaurants are all on your doorstep. Amsterdam’s famous tourists’ sites like the Jordaan district, Van Gogh Museum, canals and Central Station are also within easy reach (10 min on bike or tram). The location is also particularly good for the RAI Exhibition Centre (direct bus connection).
The apartment contains a newly renovated kitchen with all new appliances (large fridge/freezer, oven, stove, microwave, and washing machine). The apartment has a large bright living room, one master bedroom with open swinging doors to the balcony, and a modern bathroom with a bath tub.
There are several amenities close by. Groceries can be found at the local supermarket 'Albert Heijn', which is a 5 min walk. If you prefer to eat out locally there are some take away places, but also some nice restaurants/bars. I can highly recommend both Cafe Zurich and Edel. You can also choose from two beautiful parks to go to: Rembrandtpark and Vondelpark are close by. Tram 1 and 17 is the best public transport and will get you right into the centre of town in 10 minutes.
With Koos it was our first time on Airbnb and we could not ask for any better. Koos answered very quickly upon our request. The photos represent the apartment in 100%. It is nice, quiet, clean (!) and a cosy place to feel "at home" :-) Thank you Koos!
We had a very nice stay at Koos' cosy flat. Everything was fine. Our host even picked us up at the train station and guided us to his flat. There we found everything like we expected it from the pictures. Very modern and comfortable with tram station and supermarket around the corner. Thank you Koos for hosting us, we can clearly recommend your place.
A quiet place, a nice apartement, a comfortable bed, two nearby tram lines to reach the town center in a few minutes, altogether a good base camp to visit a city that has many things to offer - and for us a very pleasant first experience with Airbnb. A special thank to the friend of Koos who waited for us on our late arrival.
The apartment is as nice as you can see in the pictures and Koos is a wonderful host. Is not walking distance from city center but you have the tram stop a few steps away. Definetely would recommend the apartment and Koos as a host.
The reservation was canceled 18 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The apartment is in a calm environment and contains everything you need for a comfortable visit in Amsterdam. Also the connection to the city center or the airport is very convenient via tram. Koos is very friendly, helpful and answering quickly every question. We would definitely recommend to stay here!
Our first time with airbnb... Could't ask for any better!! Koos place is amazing, right as you see in the pics: it's like living in a design magazine!
Koos is very nice and answers promptly to any doubt or question; he clearly explained us how to reach his place... more, he came to pick us up at the tram stop when we arrived! Tram 17 is very close and takes you to the center in 7 minutes (there is also a night bus stopping in the neighbourhood!).
What else? You'll find lots of info&maps in the kitchen, no chance to get lost!
Amsterdam is fantastic, take note of this place when planning a trip there!! We will be back soon!!!
Thanks for everything ;)
Re World’s Smallest Metropolis
My husband and I recently travelled to Europe for a three week holiday which was wonderful, travelling from Australia to Amsterdam on the first leg. Koo’s was there to greet us after our very long journey from Melbourne, and it was lovely to arrive to somewhere so nicely designed, beautifully appointed and clean. It is quite compact but we had plenty of room in the living area to sort out our suitcases and travel gear. We really loved our short stay in Amsterdam and the apartment was ideal for us, it was easy to tram into the city area and enjoyed feeling like we were living in a local area that is not too touristy. The restaurant Koo’s recommended for our first night was excellent. Thanks Koo’s we would love to come back for another visit one day.

A very good place to stay in Amsterdam, near to the airport (when you don't lost in the train or tram ...) and near to the center by bike; Koos is a very nice and friendly guy. Don't look for another place, you found it!
Our stay in Amsterdam was really nice and Koos appartment was perfect! Easy to find from Airport, easy to go to Amsterdam center (5mn with Tram), everything was fine!
Koos appartment is pretty, clean, comfy, a lot of light!! I highly recommend this appartment to people wishing to spend a nice stay in Amsterdam under perfect conditions! Thanks to Koos who answered all our questions and help us to prepare our stay!
