Great apartment in a fantastic location. Very quiet. We were met by Erica, she kindly helped me up the stairs with my suitcase. Erica was very helpful & friendly. Lots of guide books and information available in t he apartment. My only complaint was the bed which was too hard for me but my husband loved it! We loved our time in Amsterdam & would highly recommend this apartment! Thank you!
Nous rentrons à peine et avons été ravis de notre séjour!
L'appartement est comme sur les photos, super et très fonctionnel.
Quant à Peter et Lisa, ce sont des hôtes adorables et très accueillants!
Ils ont été pleins de gentilles attentions et de très bons conseils quant à notre séjour en ville.
A faire et à refaire!!!
Nous nous sommes régalés!
Somos muito bem recebidos pela Lisa que inclusive nos ajudou com a bagagem. O bairro e localizacao excelente proximo de tudo.
This apartment is perfect for those who which to be in the heart of the city center. Located on a beautiful canal, you are close walking distance to everything. No need for taxis. The apartment was small, but comfortable for two adults. The apartment was very clean & well equipped. We cooked our breakfasts & dinners there to save some money. It was especially great to have a washer/dryer in the unit after a 14 day cruise. Lisa & Peter Paul could not have been better hosts. They were always available if needed and so generous in sharing information on how to make the most of our visit.
Das Apartment entsprach genau der Beschreibung, war sehr sauber und befindet sich in einer guten Lage, sodass man von dort vieles zu Fuß machen konnte und auch mal zum Ausruhen schnell wieder dort war. Es gibt viele Geschäfte und Kneipen in den Seitenstraßen, so dass man schnell mitten drin ist, trotzdem ist das Apartment sehr ruhig gelegen.
Peter Paul hat uns willkommen geheißen und am nächsten Tag ein kleines Frühstück hingestellt. Abends gab's dann noch ein "Betthupferl". Alles sehr nett und freundlich. Auch die Abreise gestaltete sich problemlos. Wir konnten unser Gepäck außerhalb der Wohnung deponieren und noch etwas unternehmen und es später abholen. Kurz gesagt, es hat alles gepasst.
My wife and I stayed here for four nights in April. It's just as described, and I agree with everything the other reviewers wrote (the hosts are very friendly, responsive and welcoming; the apartment is charming, safe, very well located, very clean). Plus, I would add: the hosts provided a guide to the city that proved very helpful, as well as lots of guide books; the apartment appears to have been completely remodeled very recently; Peter Paul is very fun to chat with.
There is a very long, steep interior staircase you need to summit to reach the front door of the apartment. And the windows for the apartment face the windows of the building next door. But steep stairways and dense housing is just part of the Amsterdam experience. If you can't adjust to those things, you might not enjoy Amsterdam.
Lisa & Peter Paul are very welcoming, we arrived very early and they went out of their way to get the apartment ready for our arrival, with a very refreshing cup of coffee & biscuits very much appreciated this.
The apartment is exceptionally clean and comfortable. Ideally situated and perfect location. Thank you Lisa & Peter Paul.
