Private room, quiet and light, with garden view and outdoor terrace, with good bedding, good coffee and tea, in the old town, in an authentic cobble stoned street, perfectly located, shops, restaurants and cafees nearby.
Nestled right in the centre near the main canals of Prinsengracht and Keizersgracht, lies our picturesque cobble stoned street. Experience quintessential Amsterdam by staying in the best room of our house that was built in the 1700s.
Overlooking a tranquil garden scene, the room sleeps two people comfortably with the option of a second, single bed. Enjoy your own en-suite bathroom and a private outdoor terrace. The room comes fully equipped with wi-fi, quality cotton linen, fluffy white towels and other amenities to make your stay comfortable.
Tea and coffee come with the room. A water boiler and a Nespresso coffee machine are your tools. Breakfast is not included, but access to several restaurants, shops and public transport is within walking distance of the house. Guests of 25 years and older are welcome. We look forward to hosting you!
The room, the en-suite bathroom, the outdoor terrace and of course the entrance hall of the house.
Interaction with Guests
Contact at check-in of course. After that, it differs per guest.
It's a residential area in the old town but everything that makes Amsterdam special is within walking distance. A supermarket that's open seven days per week till 10 pm, cafes, restaurants and breakfast places are all within the direct environment of the house.
A tram stop is only 200 metres away.
Respectful towards the house, to me and the housemates and the neighbours.
It's a non-smoking room.
In general, it's not a party house.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt!!!! ... es war ausgesprochen schön mit der Terasse, dem Kaffee, der gemütlichen Matraze, dem eigenen Bad und der ganzen Atmosphäre.
Lovely room with nice sunny deck. Bed great, could have done with more pillows. Room well set up but would suggest you get bigger towels in bathroom. We didn't realise there would be a narrow, steep winding staircase to get to our room. Wouldn't recommend to anyone who has issues with stairs. Great location, handy to centre of Amsterdam. William away for our visit, nice lady let us in and showed us around but then a bit lost for someone to ask basic questions.
We never actually met William, who was away that weekend, but he arranged for a friend to meet us at the house and show us the room. The room is in a shared house but is totally private and secure to its guests - it is really lovely! It is spacious and quiet as advertised and the photos and description are very accurate.
The whole room and bathroom were immaculately clean and everything worked as advertised. For those who like a good night's sleep the bed is super-comfortable, the linens are crisp and the pillows plush. The window has black out blinds behind the curtains so those of you with jet lag need not worry about catching up on sleep. There was a very generous supply of tea and Nespresso coffee and delicious biscuits. The roof terrace is as lovely as it sounds. It had full sun at midday and looks out over gardens.
The house itself is very quiet - you don't hear the other residents. The whole canal district is peaceful in fact - there are very few cars in the the area, most people walk or cycle. You really can hear a pin drop. We were unlucky on the first night as the house next door was having a very full on party and there were guests smoking and chatting in the yard outside our room until 3am. This led to an awkward moment the next morning when one of William's housemates accused us of partying all night and using their living room. He quickly apologised when we explained about the party and the people in the shared yard (which accesses said living room) - we really are such a boring married couple, so we were a little flattered that he thought we could have been so wild! He confirmed what we suspected - that the party was a very unusual event and the area is normally completely tranquil - which it certainly was the next night.
As for the area - getting here was amazingly easy from Schipol (William gives fantastic directions). Within 5 minutes walk from the house you have the choice of numerous cafes, antiques shops and boutiques. 10mins and you'll be enjoying the pubs in Rembrandt Square. A 25 min walk or a short tram ride and you'll be in the centre.
Just half a kilometer from here is the Waldorf Astoria and I have to say - save your pennies and get a better room here! Thanks William for a wonderful experience - it really made for an excellent weekend.
Super chambre pour un séjour dans cette jolie ville.
Le logement est parfaitement situé, près de tout.
William est un hôte agréable et très arrangeant !
A recommander :)
I enjoyed my stay very much, with the room exactly as shared. Clean, comfortable, a balcony and nespresso, it was a lovely home to come back to. Great location and definitely recommended. William was really helpful and even found me a vase when he saw I got flowers from the market. :)
My girlfriend and I had an excellent stay at Williams place. The room was perfect size for two people and was extremely cozy. The bedding is too comfortable, especially on cold mornings, makes it hard to get out of bed and be a tourist. Everything you need in a room and couldn't fault anything. Didn't see much of William apart from intially as he went away for a long weekend but he made every effort to help with whatever we needed before he left. All in all, a great stay.
Super chambrée avec une terrasse vraiment pratique ! L'hôte n'ayant pu être disponible le jour de notre arrivée, son amie a très bien su nous recevoir et nous a fait le check-in rapidement ! Et la bonne surprise de nous recevoir en français ;) Chambre et intimité très bon. P'tit necessaire à petit dejeuner dans la chambre même. La chambre nous a un peu sauvé notre séjour (mauvais temps / pluie).
Merci William et son amie !
Living happily in Amsterdam since 1992, our house in the centre has become home to me and my housemates.
We are always keen to accommodate visitors to this beautiful city in the best room of the house.
