Roos' place was better than advertised. The flat is beautifully decorated, and has great light and even better views. The neighborhood has easy access to tourist attractions, but maintains a real neighborhood feel. Roos and Michael are also wonderful hosts. They had great recommendations and were very responsive to any questions we had during the stay. The only thing to consider is the number of steps up to the place. It wasn't a problem at all for us, but be warned if you have mobility issues.
Roos and Michael were fantastic hosts. We felt extremely welcome from the very first minute. Despite airline delays, Michael met us at the apartment and insisted on carrying our gigantic suitcase up the 3 flights. They left us a mini-guidebook that they wrote, full of their favorite things to do, places to eat, etc. Plus a giant vase of roses and catmint, which was beautiful and fragrant. They also made sure to check in with us a couple of times during the week, which was nice of them to do.
The apartment is exactly as pictured--light, airy, and beautifully decorated. Everything was spotless, the kitchen was fully equipped, the bed very comfortable. It was the best of both worlds--the comfort of a great hotel and the hominess of a friend's house (that is, a friend with great taste).
The neighborhood is central to just about everything. It's on a lively section of the Southern Canal ring. The best comparison we could make was SoHo in NYC. One block over, and you're in the thick of the crowds and big chain stores, but a block in the other direction, and it's quiet canals and small restaurants and boutiques. Just minutes from the major museums, Vondelpark, as well as the Nine Streets. Really ideal, especially for a first visit to Amsterdam.
Roos & Michael were fantastic hosts and their top level canal apartment is pretty amazing. After personally living in Amsterdam for sometime, seeing the city from their apartment was a great experience. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend. Thanks Roos.
We stayed in Roos’ apartment last month and had such a great time.
the apartment is really beautiful, nicely decorated internally, fully equipped with whatever is needed
(except for an elevator but that’s a reasonable price you will gladly pay for staying in this type of buildings in that central area).
The apartment is the top one in that building with such a romantic view to the skies of Amsterdam and of course to the Kaisersgracht canal, which is very relaxing although in a central location.
It is very quiet and comfortable, and we were only sorry that it is winter and we could not use the buildings’ charming back garden terrace where one can chill out during warmer seasons….
But who needs the apartment when most of the time you stroll the streets of Amsterdam… ;-) and for this the location is perfect as nothing is too far away. we only once took a taxi to a restaurant and even then came back walking. The restaurant by the way was also great – and one of many recommendations from Roos :-) who was also charming as well as helpful (but she was not willing to discuss selling us this property … ;-)
Great location (musea, shopping), lovely appartment (clean, lot's of space and light, spiritually decorated) and perfect hosts (kind, helpful and communicative)! Was our first experience with AirBNB and we couldn't have a better one. Thanks a lot Roos!
We had an absolute awesome time in Amsterdam! Roos was a terrific host and made everything easy from check in to check out and gave great suggestions to help us for our trip! Roos place is in the best location for everything to see/do in Amsterdam. her view is great and we loved her decor! she has everything you need in her place and it felt right at home. I love the fact that her place looks right over the canal. We were able to to have a great experience in Amsterdam! thanks Roos for all your help.
After 31 hours of traveling and delays I was concerned as to the late hour of our delayed arrival as I know typical hotels often give away the room. Not Roos. She patiently waited as I updated her on our evolving travel status and was there at a crazy hour with a big smile and a warm welcome.
The apartment was very well located and easy to find (Next to Abercrombie & Fitch) near the tram stop. There's tons of restaurants around this area and even an Apple store within short walking distance.
The apartment actually seemed a bit larger than the pictures depicted, which was a nice surprise as well. It's was very nicely decorated with all kinds of interesting pieces and books all around.
The kitchen was very nice and well stocked for someone with much greater culinary skills than myself. Roos will have some nice surprises waiting for you that I won't spoil. The coffee maker is like the Keurig's we have in the states, but on steroids with all kinds of coffee flavors and tea selections built in.
There is one bed that was VERY comfortable and an optional extra air mattress if needed. Everything was very fresh and clean upon our arrival and better than hotel quality.
Roos was an awesome host and checked in on us periodically via text throughout the week and provided so many great tips on things to do and places to eat in the neighborhood.
As a first time Airbnb user this experience has got me hooked. And I will definitely try and stay here again next time I'm in town if it's available.
Experience was amazing. All is as shown and described. Great location, clean with lots of light and views of canal. Superb host that responded quickly to any request.
Should I return to Amsterdam this would be my first choice of place to stay.
SUPERBE à tous points de vue!
Emplacement idéal (en bordure d'un canal historique), en plein centre permettant de tout visiter à pieds ou par tramway. Une vue magnifique sur le canal KEISERGRACHT de la pièce principale laquelle regroupe le salon très confortable, le grand espace salle à manger et la cuisine ouverte toute équipée d'appareils électroménager hightech. Appartement très clair et ensoleillé en permanence. La chambre est idéale, donnant sur les jardins à l'arrière, très calme avec une salle de bain et douche impeccable. D'une propreté irréprochable, des senteurs d'ambiance partout. Nous avons été accueillis par Roos et Michael, tout à fait charmants, à l'heure dite très précise qui nous ont expliqué le fonctionnement de l'appartement et avaient établi à notre attention un petit guide de leurs bonnes adresses.
Une information : si vous arrivez en train à "central station", devant la gare se trouve le tramway 5,2 ou 1 que vous pouvez prendre et qui vous emmènera juste en bas de l'appartement où se trouve un arrêt de tramway.
Tout a été simple, convivial et absolument parfait.
UN GRAND MERCI!
This place is simply amazing, I spent 4 days in AMS @Roos' place and I had the best time ever with my gf. The flat is wonderful, huge and full of light, tasteful and u might find everything in it, literally everything!plus it's located along the river in the best part of the city, far 10m walking from every attraction. Roos and husband are lovely, extremely kind and available 24-7 to respond to all ur needs and requests. Downstairs u can find a fantastic restaurant (great breakfast) even though the apt is provided with a great nespresso coffee machine:) Do not hesitate to book, u can't find a better place in all the city, I would certainly come back again!ciao jack
Need a really awesome place in the Hart of the city Center of Amsterdam on the Canal: this is the place!
Mike and Roos have a cool loft with lots of light over seeing one of the canals. The apartment has an arty feel to it with a guitar and surfboard creating a cool mix in the loungy atmosphere.
The apartment is spacious and light and has everything you need for a perfect stay in the centre of Amsterdam.
Mike and Roos are great hosts who will make you feel at home and will give you local tips to make your stay complete.
I could recommend this great place from these great friends to anyone willing to have rememberable time in Amsterdam.
Michael and his lovely wife Roos are a great couple. They are well organized, interested, adventures, clean and tidy. Their apartment is amazing ! A great spacious lay out , in an historical authentic amsterdam canalhouse. beautifully decorated with lots of class and style and located right in the middle of the Amsterdam center. The restaurants downstairs are great for an early coffee or late night drink, and all in between. If I would be traveling to Amsterdam this would definitely be my favorite place to stay. highly recommendable !
