“Great apartment!”
Reviewed 4 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Thanks so much to Hans for a wonderful stay. The apartment was fantastic, a lovely neighbourhood and only ten minute walk from dam square. It was great knowing Hans was downstairs if we did need anything, however the rental was perfect and we would absolutely stay again!

“Convenient basic studio”
Reviewed 15 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016
1
person found this review helpful

A basic studio with small kitchen facilities close to the centre of Amsterdam, a stone's throw from Anne Frank house. Studio is clean and functional, with comfortable bed and very good bathroom / shower facilities. Owner lives in the same building, and is friendly and helpful.

Be warned that access is up 4 flights of quite steep and narrow stairs (even by Amsterdam standards). Awkward for luggage if you're fit and in good health. If you have mobility issues, access may be difficult.

A note of caution regarding building entrance. The entrance door has a door knob / pull too close to the door frame. The door frame itself has a sharp metal edge. I managed to catch a finger between door and frame, crushing and slicing open my finger. One need be especially careful in pulling the entrance door shut.

Many thanks for your review. I'm very sorry you've cut your finger on the entrance door. I never had any problems there myself, as well as the neighours or our other guests, but for sure we'll have a look and fix anything that needs fixing.

“NIce apartment/studio in quiet area - highly recomended”
Reviewed 8 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Really nice apartment, the four steep stairs were no problem for us.
Everything worked fine. Excellent bed, nice bathroom, good kitchen to make your own breakfasts or even dinners if you like. Good food store only 6-7 minutes away.
The WiFi worked without problem. Very helpful owner.
A perfect base to explore Amsterdam.
Advice:
- Bus 197 takes you from Schiphol Airport for 5 euros. Time 50 minutes, then a 10 minute walk to the apartment.
- About 30 minutes’ walk to city centre, no need to buy expensive city cards for bus and tram. It is nice to walk along the different channels.
- Buy Keukenhof ticket for 29 euro at Tourist info. Bus 197 plus bus 858 plus entrance plus buses back again. Good deal. Go there early in the day.
- Buy entrance to van Gogh museum at special shop between Rijksmuseum and van Gogh museum. Very long que at the van Gogh museum.
- A one hour boat sightseeing for 10 euro was well worth the price.
- The car drivers are frienly to pedestrians, but look out for bicycles and choppers. They seem to stop for nothing.

Thank you Hans.

“Cozy studio with nice views in Jordaan- Amsterdam”
Reviewed 15 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Jordaan is a very beautiful historic district in the center of Amsterdam with lots of cafes, restaurants, art galleries and good commuting. This cozy studio is under the roof of an old traditional house of Amsterdam. Hans, the owner is a very nice and helpful person. The studio is ideal for a couple. It offers nice views, a very cofortable bed and a well equipped kitchen. Off course there is no lift, but Hans helped me with my luggage. Highly recommended.

“Great location in Jordaan”
Reviewed 25 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed 5 nights in Marnix studio, it is very easy to reach from Central Station on tram 14 and has a tram stop for line 10 just outside.
The apartment had everything we needed and we appreciated the tea/coffee which was there when we arrived. The owner's friend met us as agreed and we met the owner another day and he was friendly and willing to help with any information.
The apartment is simply furnished and may need a freshen up soon but for a reasonable price in a good location I thoroughly recommend it.
4 flights of steep Amsterdam stairs may be an issue for some but this is clear in the info and if you're out exploring most days you only do them once a day.
