The Space

Nice and cosy apartment located in Amsterdam-West. The apartment is on the second floor in a building from 1940. It has a living room, one bedroom, a kitchen, a small bathroom and a studyroom, which can also be used as an extra bedroom. It has a nice balcony where you can enjoy the morning sun with a cup of coffee, looking out over the lovely garden.

It is fully eqquiped: Internet, DVD, cooking supplies, sheets, towels etc.

Amsterdam-West is a very divers neighberhood. You'll find a lot of restaurants, bars and different kind of shops but it won't be too touristic and yet the centre is only a 15 minutes walk and the Jordaan only 5 minutes by bike.
It is very well connected to the public transport. Tram 12, 13 and 14 are only a minute away and they will bring you to the centre, the south and the east part of Amsterdam passing almost every tourist attraction.

How to reach:

From the central station: Tram 13 (1,5 km), it goes every 10 minutes. Stop at Willem de Zwijgerlaan.

From Sloterdijk station: Tram 12 (1 km), it goes every 10 minutes as well. Stop at Willem de Zwijgerlaan.

If you have any questions you can always send me a message!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great and convenient location, close to tram to city centre.

    Quiet neighborhood. Nice apartment - TV wasn't connected to cable, but we didn't care about that.

    Both beds were comfortable, shower was just OK, but sufficient for just a few nights.

    Nice kitchen with all amenities, balcony towards courtyard.

    Can absolutely recommend this apartment for a few days in Amsterdam! Keys handover was really easy and quick. Nice tenants/friends of tenants.

  • Мы жили вчетвером 5 дней в конце июля 2013г. Квартира находится в центре города, до всех основных достопримечательностей можно добраться пешком или доехать на трамвае, остановка которого рядом. В квартире две спальни,гостиная, оборудованная кухня, небольшой балкончик. Квартира комфортная, уютная,есть все необходимое. Хозяин Jules был очень приветлив, добро желателен и ненавязчив, оказывал помощь во всем, хорошо говорит по английски. Недалеко от квартиры есть тренажер ней зал 10€ в день, я посещала. В целом очень рекомендую данную квартиру.

  • Apartment is truly perfectly located and you will be possibly happy to stay outside the crowdy area of A'dam, but still in 5 minutes by bike!
    The host was very helpful and nice. We stayed 3 days and didn't want to leave at the last day.

  • Stayed here for 6 nights to attend a conference in Amsterdam. We were 3 students sharing with a fourth person for one night, which made it very cosy! It was a nice place to come back to a cook dinner and chill out after a day of being out. Theres a nice balcony and spacious living/dining room. I would say that this place is very well located - the tram is very close, there is a supermarket nearby and some place to go out within walking distance. I think this place is best suited for people who know each other quite well... there are a few quirks, for example the shower room which is accessible through the living room and bedroom (luckily toilet is separate to shower) but all is as you expect from the photos. Jules was very friendly and helpful, providing recommendations and directions! He was also quick to respond to any questions we had after we had settled in, for example the internet was temporarily unavailable but sorted out within an hour! Thanks for a good week in Amsterdam!

  • We had a very nice holiday experience with this apartment flat. This was the first time we used AirBnB and from now on, I don't think that we will spend any money on hotels. The apartment flat is just as described and as seen in the pictures. It was like our real home after 4 days. Our host Jules made sure to hand the flat very clean and the house was full with food, cleaning items, tools, etc.  We were having a breakfast (boiling eggs, making toasts using microwave) at the balcony which is small but adequate. We were relaxing after a day-long walk in the city, just in the same way we do in our real home. The neighborhood is very peaceful and quite. We never had any trouble with sleeping as if the flat is soundproof. There is a large supermarket within 10 minutes walk distance. The tram 12-13-14 basically covers all the amsterdam. With tram 12 you can go to museum district, with 14 to rembrandt square and with 13 to dam square and city center. Not even a single negative thing about this flat comes to my mind. I visited Amsterdam two times in the past and believe me that the hotel rooms are smaller than this flat. Our host Jules is a great guy. He has a big smile, gentle and knows about many things. I was very suprised that he knows about the current situation in my country and also watching a TV Channel of here, that even our people are not aware of. He tried to provide every help possible. We meet-up with him one night with his buddies and they took us to local bar. We had a good laugh and they all are very friendly. Jules also knows lots of hidden gems in Amsterdam. So I advice you to take advice from him, on anything you are not very aware of. He can direct you in right direction.

    And Jules if you are reading this: Thank you this great experience and 'Is that the panel of the air conditioner, there on the wall?'

  • Jules is a really nice guy. The apartment is cozy and has everything you need. While not directly in the center, there are trams just 100 meters away that take you there in 5 minutes. You could also walk, since it is an enjoyable area. I highly recommend this place.
