The loft is exactly like the pictures, nice and cozy, but it is especially convenient for the center; is 2 min walk from the tram 17 and always nearby there is a market to stock up on everything you need. The welcome was also very warm even though we could not know Marijke, but we were still very happy. In summary, thumbs up !
The owner was not there, so we didnt get to meet her, but communication was very fluid at all times.
She left in charge a couple of friends, which, never came to meet us, even though we agreed a day before time of arrival, and, after finally being able to call them (they didnt pick up the first couple of tries) he came 15 minutes after the call.
It was snowing, freezing cold, pregnant wife, and, worst of all, i only had 30 hours in Amsterdam, so, every minute counted.
We ended up coming in the apartment 1 hour after agreed, so i was kind of angry.
Apart from that, he was nice and gave us everything we needed for our stay.
The apartment is nice, though it could use a deep cleaning, specially rugs and couch. Shower does not have a light, so you kind of shower in the dark.
Decor is very nice, kind of industrial, pictures describe it perfectly.
Location is pretty good too, nice area with lots of shops around, and a tram a couple blocks away.
Internet comes and goes as it please, so dont rent this if you need to work or you must use wi fi at all times.
Other than that, pretty good apartment.
Marijke was great and her apartment was an awesome place to stay in Amsterdam. It is close by the metro and a close walk from markets, bars, restaurants, and coffee shops.
Hi we had THE most amazing time at Marijke's amazing flat. The place looks even more gorgeous in real life, and was really clean and homely feeling. Marijke gave us loads of information about the area and some fantastic recommendations for things to do and places to eat ( and we did ALL of them!) and really enjoyed ourselves. We were there for 6 nights and really go to explore the city and the local area. The local area is great and really vibrant. There are great bars and restaurants, a food street market, a huge warehouse complex with street food and shops and a cinema which we explored. We were also really fortunate to have great weather and experience Amsterdam over New Year - the fireworks and bangers were great! Marijke's friend Lara met us at the apartment to give us the keys and show us around, and was really sweet. We were unfortunately delayed by a couple of hours getting there but texted Lara and she was really nice about it and patently waited for us. She met us when we were leaving also so we could drop off the keys, all in a very timely manner which made the whole experience a total pleasure. We really hope to return to Amsterdam and definitely will be asking Marijke if we can stay there again! Over all - AMAZING. Highly recommend it!!!
Oh my, so sweet of you guys! This makes renting out the apartment such a pleasure. Happy you were happy! You are ALWAYS welcome, give me a heads up before you want to come and I will save the date. Thank you very very much. XX from me and Lara.
I never met Marijke, but her apartment was a fine place to stay for a couple days. The management company running it was nice and easy to interact with. Easy access to the tram, for sure! The decor is...interesting, as shown in the photos, but good quality.
Nice, clean place, perfect service with keys. Practical kitchen etc. Friendly to be in contact with. A good place to stay!
Marijke's Apartment was perfect for what we needed. She has a service that brings you the key and shows you around the space. They were incredibly nice and quick with responding.
The apartment is far enough out of the way that you don't have to deal with tourists, but is located by multiple trams to get you where you need to go quickly. The neighborhood has a morning market, so if you're planning on cooking from home you have wonderful produce and olives right there!
Also, if you have a hankering for REAL southern BBQ (slow cooked meats), head over to the Bar Brouw. Having lived in NC and TX, I can tell you these guys do it right. The rib spice profile was just a bit different, but in a good way! Their BBQ sauce is total TX style as well and of course their slaw is amazing because Dutch Mayo is way better than any other mayo!
We enjoyed staying at Marijkes. The apartment has a rustic, eclectic homely feel and is well equipped. It is close to trams, supermarkets and shops, but is still quiet. Our stay was great. Thanks Marijke.
We had a really nice stay at marijke's apartment, it was very convenient and cheaper to move around with the tramway chipcards she left for us. The apartment in itself is very well equipped, and the bed is indeed a blessing, I'm considering buying the same mattress overlay. The key okay service is also very effective. Thank you!
We stayed 3 night at Marijke flat in august.
We found the exact flat we saw (and loved) on the description. It's well furnished and cleaned.
The apartment is well located (city centre is close by walk or tram, the area is easy to reach from P+R) and allowed us the enjoy Amsterdam as we expected.
Marijke was not there when we arrived and left but she was able to answer our question before our arrival. And always with kindness and quickness.
The hosting service (KeyOK) works well (liked their SMS system). We experienced two disappointing events during our stay within the apartment (including leakage in ceiling due to massive thunderstorms) and both Marijke and KeyOK were there to help us. That was bothering to experience those events but very nice to see their reactions ! Thanks to all of you guys :)
To sum up, it's a great flat, a great host (KeyOK included) and for sure a place to book to enjoy Amsterdam !
