My apartment is 90 m2 big (969 square feet), in the centre of Amsterdam. A kitchen with microwave/oven, dishwasher. Simple but clean bathroom. The livingroom has a big lounge couch and a 42 inch flatscreen. The bedroom has a kingsize, very comfortable boxspring bed and also a 42 inch flatscreen. You are also welcome to use the washer and dryer. Towels and linen are included.
Even though it is in the heart of the city of Amsterdam, it is quiet.
The supermarket is 2 minutes away, the drugstore is not even 1 minute away. Central Station and his shops are 2 minutes by foot (Starbucks, supermarket, drugstore and pizza/pasta places) and are usually open untill midnight.
A 5 minute walk to the famous Dam Square, 5 minutes by bike to Leidse square for clubbing, drinks and fun!
In my neighborhood there are authenthic 16th, 17th and 18th century buildings. Narrow cosy streets and of course the smaller canals.
I recommend a boat trip thru the canals, it is a must see!
Only 15 minutes by train from Schiphol Airport to Central Station.

- Flower Market (5 minutes by bike)

The flat was in the perfect location. Within walking distance to all the main tourist sites, also in a really buzzing lively area but inside the apartment is very peaceful. The flat was clean and spacious and all we needed for 2 people. We very much enjoyed our stay in Amsterdam. Thanks Colinda!
The apartment, albeit a bit old, had everything you need and was in the perfect location. Just 2 minutes walking from Central Station and situated in an alley that has everything you need within a few meters; from coffee shops to McDonald's, supermarkets, shopping stores etc...
Colinda was great too! She accommodated our early check-in, met us and gave us a tour of the apartment, left us a few tips, was kind enough to let us borrow her public transport card so we don't buy one, and best of all, had a bottle of Champagne and two glasses waiting for us! "This is for Valentine's day!", she said.
All in all, it was a great stay made even greater by an awesome host. Thanks Colinda!
So wonderful, stylish and large apartment with all you will need in the heart of the city – is the best choice to stay in Amsterdam.
My colleague and I spent 5 days in Amsterdam, having stay at so comfortable flat and Colinda was always so friendly and helpful. We are really glad that we stayed at Colinda’s apartment and we would definitely stay there again.
Colinda was a very nice host . She gave us lots of good advice . The apartment was clean, very large and well equipped . You feel immediately at ease .
The apartment is very centrally located . Only a few minutes walk from Central Station.
I would book this apartment again any time
Colinda is a very friendly person. It takes 3min to walk to Central Station even if you’re carrying luggage. The Dam Square and many other tourist attractions are just a short walk away. McDonald’s is across the (pedestrian) street from the building and large size grocery store “AH” (with a large variety of fresh juices!) is just 2min walk from the apt. Apartment is on 3rd (American) floor with elevator going from the 2nd. Apt has washer and separate (and very effective) tumble dryer. Wi-fi was fast. The heater worked very well. Even though the building is in a busy area, it was very quiet inside the apt both day and night.
Apartment is extremely spacious but closets were pretty much full of owner’s belongings. Small portable closet was available for our use but it was more convenient to keep half of our clothes in open luggage on the floor. Apt looked kind of shabby on the edges: dust on TV stands, some forks and spoons were not clean, some rust in shower cabin and sink, some grease on the dining table. Several apartment arrangements were strange: no towel hook/shelf/etc in the bathroom. Bathroom does not have power outlet either. So in order to dry her hair my wife had to kneel in front of turned off TV screen and use it as a mirror.
Even though bedroom is huge, the bed is set with one side literally 1 foot away from the window and only one nightstand on the opposite side. If you like soft beds, this apartment is for you. Mattress is very soft.
Since most of the negative things listed here are fixable, I suspect the owner will take care of them for future tenants.
Colinda's such a great host! She was very helpful and warm right from the moment I contacted her. She was very prompt with her response and this makes planning easier me and it didn't take very long for me to make the decision to book her apartment! After booking her apartment, she sent me some useful info for my stay in Amsterdam. Colinda is also a genuinely nice person and my husband and I are lucky enough to meet her when we checked in. :)
The best part is, her apartment is so so so convenient to get around and very near to the central station. I have a 15 month-old toddler and thus at times, we just went back to the apartment for her naps since its so close to the shopping area. Her apartment is simple but very spacious and my baby seems to be having a lot of fun with the ample space around. Her bed is also very comfortable that we always have difficulty waking up in the morning. :)
And her kitchen is complete with all the basic needs (utensils, spices, oil, salt, etc) which makes whipping up a simple meal easy! There's also an elevator, though you will need to climb a few steps up first before you can use the elevator but it's a minor problem. We had 2 big luggage, 1 baby stroller and an active baby and we could manage.
The next time I travel to Amsterdam, I will not hesitate to book her apartment again! If you are looking for a spacious yet simple apartment in central Amsterdam, I highly recommend Colinda's apartment.
And thanks Colinda, for your great hospitality! We had an enjoyable stay! =)

The apartment is in a good location, in walking distance to the center, the train station and close to tram. The communication with Colinda was excellent, she was always in contact with us. The apartment was clean and well furnished, and allows us to have comfortable stay in Amsterdam.
