My partner and I just stayed here for a nice 4 day weekend. The apartment was very comfortable, nicely decorated, the kitchen had all utensils to prepare meals, the bed was very comfortable, plenty of heat to keep the Amsterdam chill outside. Nice selection of CD's and the view of the canal was an extra bonus. Highspeed, Wireless, WiFi made it very easy for us to work vs having to look for and pay for an internet cafe(bring you own laptop) The building has plenty of charm, very secure, elevator, and the neighborhod is more residential than tourist (which we liked) .A grocery store is just one block away and a couple little food shops and restaurants are nearby. It is only a 20minute walk from the apartment to Central Station, bus service is very near. In short I'd stay here again and plan to do so on my next visit to Amsterdam!
