All in all a lovely stay. Very nicely decorated and a comfy bed. My only disappointment was not realising this is a studio apartment and doesn't have a separate bedroom. My partner had travelled from the USA and was jet lagged so we could have done with more privacy so not to disturb each other.
The area was about 20 minute walk from the main town and 10 minutes from the Vondelpark.
I stayed here with my girlfriend for four nights - the flat is wonderful, in a terrific location, and Marijke was an ideal host. I was also given useful guidance on the local surroundings, trams to the airport etc. I would highly recommend the flat to anyone.
Marijke was very friendly and her apartment is beautiful! The place is filled with vintage treasures and artistic twists. We enjoyed our stay very much. The bed is huge and the linen is very comfortable!
Marijke's loft style apartment was great. It has a industrial style and cosy atmosphere... which is very cool...We really had great memories. It is very close to city centre... Tram is just 2 minutes away from the apartment and also u just need to walk 2-3 minutes to market area... Shops, supermarket, restaurants and pubs r nearby... Thanks for sharing with us..
Cool apartment, great location. Would go back.
Wow! This apartment is amazing. Looks just like in the photos. Kitchen is well equipped, the bed is unbelievably comfy and HUGE. Friendly, knowledgable staff met us on arrival. Will most definitely be booking this place again.
Great location and walking distance to a beautiful canal area and interesting restaurants and cafes. A nice grocery store is a 5 minute walk away and two different tram lines take you either to the museum district or to the train station. The apartment is quiet, clean and well-appointed. Marijke's apartment has a great urban chic, industrial design style. The neighborhood appears to be in transition, but it definitely is safe to walk at night. We took the train from the airport Corneileus Leylee Station and caught Tram 17 toward the train station and were able to get off right by the apartment. That was so handy!
The apartment was clean and close to tram and the supermarket. The kitchen is full equiped. Perfect for a couple.
Thank you, Marijke
Marijke's apartment is fantastic - clean, well designed, cozy, and with a very comfortable bed, The neighborhood isn't touristy but very convenient to many tram stops that access many parts of Amsterdam. There are many cafes, and restaurants nearby as well as a supermarket. Marijke gave us some wonderful tips for shopping and dining and was flexible with our check-in and check-out! We enjoyed our time and would happily stay again!
We had an amazing time in Marijke's apartment. The location was PERFECT. The design made us feel like we were at home in NYC but with the perfect amount of Amsterdam charm. That bed is so damn comfortable we had a difficult time waking up in the morning but that's a very good thing! Marijke couldn't meet us but her lovely friend Douwe was there to greet us perfectly on time and give us some tips about the area. Marijke's next door neighbor Hyacyntia turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip as she was HYSTERICAL, warm and so kind as to allow us to leave our luggage at her place and then she DROVE us to the airport! Unreal! Highly recommend staying here. The only downside is there is not enough light in the bathroom which made getting ready to go out a bit of a challenge. This certainly should NOT be a deterrent for anyone when deciding to book this apartment. It's still getting 5 stars in our book and we will definitely return next time!
Response from Marijke:
