We stayed for a week and wish we could have stayed longer, the apartment felt like home and Carolina is the perfect host. We have a seven year old daughter who was made to feel welcome and the apartment was family friendly. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our family meals. When we are next in Amsterdam we will not hesitate to book again.
The apartment is a 10 minute walk from Centraal Station with generous space including a big bathroom and well equipped kitchen. There is an extra room available making the apartment suitable for a family of up to 5 people.
The apartment looks out onto a canal and is close to all the major attractions of Amsterdam. The owner is very helpful with suggestions for restaurants, supermarkets and local attractions.
The location is perfect and the accommodation has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. It is very clean, spacious and traditional which we liked. We will without doubt be returning..... loved it x
It was our first trip to Amsterdam and I spent hours searching online for a rental. I read many reviews and am so glad I listened to others. This is the best! Stop searching and book it!
The pros: Excellent location for walking to museums, restaurants, the train station, catching a boat tour on the canals or a bus to see the windmills or gardens. ( We are in our 60s and walked everywhere. It is a safe and lovely neighborhood)
The apartment is very nice without having to climb a narrow stairway with your luggage. It is a basement apartment, but you have windows out the front for light. You can also take the folding chairs out front and sip a glass of wine on the canal. The bed was comfortable and the bath and kitchen were spotless and larger than they appear in the photos. There is a walk in shower in addition to the tub. Best of all Carolina will make you feel at home. She went above and beyond as a hostess with providing lists and maps to help us find our way...Oh,and a lovely bottle of wine and chocolate as welcome gifts! We hope to return as we had a wonderful time and will definitely hope to rent Singel 96 again!!
The Cons... You don't have a view, but to have that think about hauling your bags up many stairs!! We were out all day seeing the sights and again out for the evenings anyway so didn't need a view.
You will be glad you booked Singel 96!! Enjoy!
Carolina was a genuinely hospitable host. The basement apartment was comfortable and spacious, with all the facilities you might need - including efficient wifi. Our friend stayed in the room upstairs which was just as nice. It was also a pleasure to enjoy their great contemporary art. And all of this at a very affordable price. Thanks!!!
