Large and light-filled bedroom with double bed, in spacious, clean apartment. On quiet street overlooking the widest canal in Amsterdam. Steps to the historic centre; cafe's, shops, restaurants around the corner. Great for business travellers.
Large, light filled bedroom with double bed, in spacious and clean apartment overlooking the widest canal in Amsterdam. Many days, more boats than cars pass by!
Steps to the cute Jordaan and historic centre, about 10 minutes' walk to the Anne Frank house, less than 10 minutes by bus or tram from Central Station, van Gogh museum and other attractions. Bars, restaurants and shops around the corner, Westerpark with its green spaces and trendy artistic spots (jazz club, cinema, restaurants, galleries....) is just a few blocks away, and Amsterdam's latest trendy spot - de Hallen - is also nearby. Shopping street around the corner, and several markets on different days of the week within 10 minutes' walk.
The apartment is about 100m sq and the bedroom is about 15m sq. From the bedroom you have direct access to the large, south-facing balcony, where you can have breakfast, coffee or just sit and relax.
At the corner there is a bike shop, and just a little further along you can rent an electric-powered boat and glide along the canals of Amsterdam.
A healthy breakfast is included in the price. It's prepared by 8am and ready for you to help yourself. Let me know any food preferences. Vegans, gluten free, etc happily accommodated, with sufficient notice.
I believe that travel should be accessible and comfortable. My price is typically set below that of a double room in a hostel near the city centre, and it's much quieter and nicer! Due to a regulation from my landlord, I can't accept tourists, but people visiting Amsterdam for work, study etc are welcome.
Apartment is on the third floor with an elevator, building is wheelchair accessible. Central heating makes it cosy in winter, and big windows open for fresh breezes in summer.
You have access to the whole apartment except my bedroom.
Crisp clean sheets and nice fresh towels provided. You have your own room with direct access to bathroom. There is a separate additional toilet.
The very big living/dining room is also at your disposal - stylish dining table and two comfortable sofas. Large TV with cable, WIFI access available. You're welcome to all of this, including if you want to work at the table. The kitchen is available to you most of the time, too.
I rent only one room, so you are sharing the facilities with myself and occasionally also my boyfriend.
Interaction with guests
I love hosting, but as a frequent traveler, I also understand that there are times when you may just prefer not to interact much. I'm available, but not in your face.
I am happy to provide you with information, insight or suggestions about exploring Amsterdam, or to let you discover this lovely city in your own way. I have maps and guide books if you want them.
I work from home much of the time, but my office is separate from the living area.
Other things to note
Price includes healthy breakfast.
Delicious dinner (vegetarian or fish) available by arrangement.
The building is wheelchair accessible, and the apartment is suitable for persons with mobility limitations.
Mostly, check in and check out times are flexible - except to accommodate another guest. However on some occasions you'll need to pick up the key at a local business, and let yourself in.
Occasionally, I may be traveling, and you'll be staying here alone. In that case, you have access to the whole apartment except my bedroom, and I'll leave a good supply of breakfast items for you.
"Do unto others...." - treat my place in the way you hope I'd treat yours.
Please tell me if there's anything you don't like - I'd like to put it right if I can.
No smoking in the building or on the balcony. No drugs anywhere.
For the sake of my neighbours, please be quiet on the stairs and on the balcony after 10pm.
Laundry by arrangement.
Due to a regulation from my landlord, I cannot host 'tourists'. Visitors to Amsterdam for work, study etc are however fully welcome.
