Das Apartment enspricht ganz genau der Beschreibung. Es liegt super zentral, so dass man von dort aus eigentlich alles zu Fuß gut erreichen kann. Die 9 Straatjes sind direkt um die Ecke. Wir wurden herzlich empfangen, es gab Kaffee und im Kühlschrank warteten abends sogar zwei kühle Bier auf uns, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Apartment war sehr sauber und ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Wir können diese Unterkunft zu 100% weiterempfehlen, man kann in Amsterdam kaum besser wohnen.
This is a delightful apartment which is very centrally located. We were able to walk to all the things we wanted. The hosts have thought of everything for their guests' comfort. Whilst, unfortunately, we didn't meet Lisa and Peter Paul as they were away, Lisa's Mother was a most charming and helpful person to liaise with. Information was provided for everything from WiFi to restaurant recommendations and a cheap taxi service to the airport.
Canal apt was really lovely, exactly as described by the listing, and in the perfect location in Amsterdam. We were warmly greeted, with wine and fabulous cookies left for us. All in all, a fantastic stay! Oh...and how could we forget...we fell in love with Amsterdam!
My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lisa's place. Lisa & Peter we're welcoming and had suggestions of places to eat/things to do. The bed and sofa bed was comfortable. The flat had everything we needed, including a great bath & shower. The stairs provided good exercise! If you like your own space I highly recommend. The local neighbourhood is beautiful & peaceful. The apartment is in a prime location.
We received a warm welcome from Lisa and Peter Paul on our arrival, and the cozy apartment was the perfect place for us in Amsterdam. All of our expectations were exceeded. The place was well appointed to meet all of our needs, close to great shopping and restaurants without being too crowded or touristy. A wonderful neighborhood and place that we highly recommend.
The location of the apartment is fantastic, probably in the nicest part of Amsterdam! The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was quite nice. We thought the apartment was much nicer than the photographs depicted. Lisa and Peter Paul were fantastic hosts, and made us breakfast the first morning. We appreciated their hospitality!
Lisa and Peter Paul were fantastic hosts. We really have nothing negative to say about the hosts or the apartment. It was perfect for our stay and the location was tough to beat. The only other comment we will make is that the apartment is on the top (4th) floor so you will get your exercise.
