Trip Report Apartment Review - Amsterdam

Jump to last reply

My husband and I spent 5 nights in the larger 2-story Amsterdam at Home apartment earlier this month.

Website: http://amsathome.nl/

Layout: The apartment has two floors. The street level floor contains a small toilet/sink, a kitchenette, a large dining table (easily seats 8), and a small sitting area with a small sofa and a TV/DVD player. An assortment of guidebooks and other reading material is on hand. Upstairs has the bedroom and larger bathroom with shower. The bedroom is quite spacious for Europe. It has a queen-size bed, night tables, two wardrobes, a small dresser, and a nice-size flat screen TV with DVD player (a few DVDs on hand). The bathroom was very spacious for a European apartment. The shower is finished with river rock and toiletries were included (body wash, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, q-tips, tissues).

Noise Level: It's on a very quiet street considering the extremely central location. You can hear noise from the street, but even on a Friday and Saturday night, there was never anything very noisy at all. It really is a very quiet little street. As you expect when sharing walls, you could hear those adjacent to you when they opened/closed a door loudly, but that was the extent of it. Truly... very peaceful and quiet. Especially considering just how central this apartment is!

Location: LOVED it. We walked everywhere. My husband's company sent a driver to pick him/us up several times for various meetings/dinners in Amstelveen. The drivers were able to find it without difficulty. They (universally Amsterdam natives) all said it was one of the best areas to stay in for seeing all corners of the core of the city.

Things to Know: There are handles (not a handrail, handles), but the stairs are twisting and steep. If you have difficulty with narrow stairs, probably not the best apartment for you. The kitchenette has everything except an oven. There are a few staples on hand, but you'll need to purchase groceries as the only items that are replaced are the Nespresso capsules. The apartment came with daily cleaning. New sheets/bedding after 3 nights. New towels every other day. It was spotlessly clean and charmingly decorated. Loved the antique ice skates.

Summing it Up:
We will absolutely stay here again if it's just the two of us. If we have the kiddos with us, we will look into simultaneously renting the basement apartment below as we absolutely loved the owners and the location so much that I'd be sad to stay anywhere else.
