  • This place is a true gem! A perfect location, less than a ten minute walk from the train station but tucked away on a very quiet street. The apartment is newly renovated, spacious and light, with design touches in just the right places. Everything you could possibly need is here: well-equipped kitchen, storage, clothes washer, guidebooks, coffee and tea, even a bottle of wine and beer in the fridge. Elly went beyond the call to help us with advice and even called her doctor to set up an appointment for one of us. We felt very welcomed and lucky to have such a beautiful place to stay. If only we had enjoyed the lovely roof terrace before it started to rain!

  • Our experience at Elly's studio is one we're not likely to forget. The apartment is beautiful with plenty of sunlight all throughout the day. The building is located on a very pretty canal street and the studio has great views of this from both the main window and its balcony. It is conveniently located only 10 minutes from the main train station and also very close to many of the main attractions in the city. Elly is an excellent host and made us feel very welcome right away. She took a good portion of her day explaining the city, giving us many suggestions for things to do and places to go. I highly recommend this listing and I would love to make it back some day

  • Lovely apartment, great location and very helpful host - Elly was full of recommendations and tips. Highly recommended (the stairs really are quite steep though)

  • Elly's beautiful attic apartment is the perfect place to stay in Amsterdam. The street is peaceful at night, yet is only a short walk from the busier parts of this bustling city.

    The flat is bright and airy and had everything you could need for your stay in Amsterdam. Also, Elly was there to welcome us and give us all the information we needed. She is a very laid-back but attentive host, who dropped us messages to check we were okay but generally left us to enjoy our holiday.

    The pictures on this site make the apartment look beautiful, but in fact they do not capture it's bright light and airy feel nearly as well as they ought. Also, the roof terrace is a real treat to relax on.

    The stairs to this attic space are not for the feint-hearted, but once you've been in and out a couple of times, they seem normal. All in all, a great experience, living at the very top of a traditional Amsterdam canal house. Truly cannot recommend Elly's place enough!

  • This apartment was amazing! Views from every angle in the house. Yes the stairs are crazy steep but so worth it. If I return I will defiantly be staying here again. Ellie was also very helpful and sweet.
    5minute walk to main red light district.

  • Me and my girlfriend visited this lovely accommodation in Amsterdam and were very pleased! Very good service: accommodation, cleanliness, and as well little things like coffe for free or a nice view out of the windows. We had lived super there on the rooftops of Amsterdam in a clean and quiet surrounding! The conclusion is that recommended in any case!

  • Great host! Elly is very nice and gives every suggestion you need for your stay in Amsterdam. The studio is wonderful... You live in the very center of the city, but in a totally quiet Street. My friend and I spent lovely days in Elly's house and already dream to come back soon.

  • We absolutely loved our stay in Elly's apartment - it was in a perfect location and was such a bright and comfortable apartment. Elly was a wonderful host who greeted us upon arrival and proved maps and suggestions for nearby attractions and restaurants. We would love to stay with Elly again if we get the chance to go back to Amsterdam.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the canal house and the views were amazing! It was exactly as described and Elly & Louis were the perfect hosts. We arrived at 11.00am and dropped our luggage off which Louis helped to carry up all the stairs and we were giving a map of Amsterdam to help us get around. The apartment was so nice and light and really clean and well kept. The area was lovely and peaceful with views of the canals - only a 3 minute walk to Nieuwmarkt and a short walk to Dam square and central station. I would definitley stay here again and was very happy with our experience here. Thank you very much!

  • Great host! Makes you feel at home and makes sure your stay is enjoyable. It's quite a walk up to the top floor, but that's how most places are in Europe. It's an excellent location with great views! Very close to central station and many great restaurants/etc.
