We stayed in this apartment for two days in May. Great communication from owners and apartment was beautiful and very clean. Highly recommend.
This spacious apartment is ideally situated for visiting the sights, restaurants etc. The owners Robert and Anna could not be more welcoming and helpful in recommending restaurants, places to visit etc. Would definitely book again if visiting Amsterdam.
In complete honesty this was one of the most relaxing and friendliest holidays I've ever had. The Art Apartment combines the pleasure of staying in a hotel with the freedom & money saving aspect of going self-catering but with the support and advice of your hosts literally next door. And what a host - we met Robert a few times during our stay and truly you couldn't meet a nicer man. Immensely helpful with where to go and what to see (including where to get the best apple pie in the city) to discussing everything from art to politics, his love of his city and friendly nature makes you feel at home from the start.
Location wise the apartment is about a 10 minute walk to Anne Frank's House but there's a very efficient and cheap tram service literally just down the road which takes you to all the major tourist spots .
We stayed for 4 nights at a cost that was less than 3 nights in a near-by hotel and we got so much more! Unlike many hotels in the city there was so much space - you get a contemporary styled living room, bedroom annexe, walk-in shower, toilet and kitchen gallery alongside your own entrance. The kitchen is incredibly well stocked with utensils, with a well stocked supermarket less than 5 minutes away so you can cook from scratch if you want to or just heat up your meals. The whole apartment was immensely clean throughout and there's only occasional outside noise.
Would give it far more than 5 stars if I could - a truly lovely experience. Utterly recommend.
On a practical note if you're arriving via the airport you can catch the 197 from stand B11 - you can get a Round Trip (return) ticket for 10 euros from the driver.
Everything about this place was great - the location, the décor, the little treats in the bathroom... Our hosts were extremely friendly and helpful and we felt very welcome.
Will definitely return!
The apartment is beautiful, with a well equipped kitchen and plenty of books etc to occupy you, should you end being stuck inside with sick children like we were! The period features and stunning decor made this apartment feel like a home from home, an art lover would appreciate the incredible work on display.
The location is perfect, 10 minutes walk from a good supermarket and not much further to nine streets. I cannot recommend the apartment itself enough, but moreover, it was the generosity and true kindness of Robert and Anna that made our trip. We had a difficult time away, and small gestures, like a Christmas tree and bringing us a cake, made a huge difference. They were, without doubt, two of the loveliest, kindest, and coolest (in that very dutch way!) people that I have met in many years. We will definitely book again. Thankyou to you both
