Interaction with Guests
Guests have a strictly private apartment, we may run into eachother in front of the building, or guests can find me in the next door office.
Host is available for contact, questions, needs or suggestions 24/7.
The Quartier Latin of Amsterdam. Easy going and relaxed. High level of facilities around and very centrally located in the heart of Amsterdam. Plenty of bars, restaurants, pubs and shops. This quarter called DE PIJP (part of Old South) is less frantic than the 'centre centre' and more 'human scale'. Attractive daily market round the corner and the green Sarphatipark. Just next to the most attractive Museums of the Netherlands: Rijksmuseum with old Flemish and Dutch masters and much more. The colourful van Gogh museum and the 'Stedelijk' Museum of contemporary art. This quarter was constructed in the late 19th century. Gerard Doustraat 8 dates back to 1886.
From the Airport: By train to Central Station in 15 minutes. By taxi: 15-20 minutes from Airport to apartment for approximately 35-40 euro max. (Mini-bus: 7 persons 55-60 euro). By Bus 197: directly to Museumsquare in 20 minutes, stop: Concerthall (10 minute walk to the apartments).
Buses and Taxi’s right in front of the Airport trainstation/ Airport Arrivalhall.
From Central train station: Tramline 16 or 24 to stop Albert Cuijp market street (in 13 minutes).
Public transport round the corner of Alexander’s Apartments. Amsterdam is a compact city, so everything is within walking/ cycling distance. By tram to Damsquare 10 minutes max.
Other Things to Note
Steep and narrow flights of stairs (unless you book a ground floor accommodation). House dates from 1886 when the Dutch used to pay taxes on the width of their houses, that is why flights of stairs are narrow and steep! And that is also why you see hoisting beams for furniture in top of the old buildings. There is advantages too: flights of stairs and cycling = free jogging ;-)
Plenty of restaurants, bars, shops in all price ranges in the direct vincinity.
Bicycle rental nearby.
Rent your own (electric) boat and enjoy your private boattour as a skipper or passenger!

Alexander was very nice and welcoming. We really had a great time in Amsterdam. He was very helpful that he gave us a lot of suggestion of places to visit in Amsterdam.
The apartment was very nice. It was very comfortable and really fit for 7 of us. The apt was clean, and everything just as said in the listing page and the picture also. Though the bathroom was quite small and the stairs are steep. Just prepare your muscle if you wish to bring big luggages.
Overall it was a very nice place and we would love to stay there whenever we visit Amsterdam :)
Best regards from Indonesia :)
Le logement était agréable et surtout bien placé dans un quartier très Artistique remplient de bar et boutique fort sympathique .
Wij waren met vriendinnen een nachtje naar Amsterdam, was erg leuk!
Volgens mij hebben we in een ander appartement geslapen dan waarvoor we geboekt hadden (afbeeldingen op de site waren anders, locatie wel hetzelfde), maar dat was alleen maar positief! Dit appartement was erg mooi en gezellig en de locatie was prima! Alexander heeft bij aankomst nog veel verteld over de stad, waar je leuk kon uiteten, stappen etc. We moesten wel 25 euro extra bijbetalen voor het bijboeken van de 7e persoon (we hadden eerst voor 6 gereserveerd, later is er nog een 7e bijgekomen, maar het appartement was wel geschikt voor 7 personen). Over het algemeen: erg positief, prima appartement!
Alexander was very nice and welcoming, he gave us many useful information on the main places to visit in Amsterdam. We did have a small change in our booking but we did not have any problem getting a refund. Overall the flats were nice and clean and not too far from the city centre.
Really helpful in letting me leave my luggage there early and take a shower in the common bathroom before my check-in. Rooms are simple and clean. Great place, would recommend it.
it was nice place.
we had three rooms with big beds, six people stayed there.
it would be better if we could have a living room, but this is definitely nice place to stay.
it has a canal view and is very clean of course.

Hello, I am Alexander. I hope to welcome you soon in my house in Amsterdam . Think you will enjoy it! I have been traveling quite a bit as a driver/guide and had a travel agency/touroperating agency.
I have been living in Amsterdam for over 30 years, I am Dutch and was born in 1955 in a small city along the river Rhine. I also lived in Utrecht and the Hague before I found my home in Amsterdam. The vivid heart of Holland. The accommodation is close to Museumsquare, Heineken Experience and Albert Cuijp market street. The Quarter is called ZUID / de Pijp. It is the so called Quartier Latin of Amsterdam. It is one of the most central and attractive quarters of Amsterdam. The atmosphere is easy and laid back, less hectic than the canalbelt. The house is from 1886. Steep flights of stairs (and cycling) will keep us fit ;-). Alexander's is just next to the canal 'Boerenwetering' leading to Rijksmuseum at 5 minutes walking distance. Leidse plein square, Rembrandt square and city nightlife is also near. From Schiphol Airport by train to the Central Railway Station takes 20 minutes. From the Central Railway Station it takes ten minutes by tram (16 or 24) to stop Albert Cuijp market street. Enjoy your stay in Amsterdam!
