Here you are, in the old district of Amsterdam where the hustle and bustle of the city meets the quietness of the canals!
You are directly in Nieuwmarkt (arguably the best square in Amsterdam) and just 5 minutes walking from central station
Wellcome to Amsterdam and in one of its characteristic apartments (registered in the UNESCO database as historical building to be preserved).
The apartment is on two floors, it is facing the Nieuwmarkt square and borders the Chinese district.
On the entrance floor you will find a spacious and cosy living room with a beautiful view over the Nieuwmarkt square; a well equipped kitchen and a small toilet.
On the lower level you find two big bedrooms (approximately 22/24 square metres each) one for the guests and one for me. One bedroom is facing the Nieuwmarkt square and is a bit more noisy (this is the one that I normally keep for me) and the other one is internal and so really quiet but still with windows and a lot of light. This bedroom has two spaces divided by an internal door, the second space is perfect for a kid or an extra guest and there is a fordable single bed while the main bed is a double bed 160*200 cm.
You find on this level also a bathroom only with shower and another small toilet (bathroom and toilet are shared and kept really tidy and clean).
The whole apartment is shared and you have access and you can use whatever you see around.
The Kitchen is well equipped and you can prepare your own meal or breakfast. The espresso machine is freely available free of charge.
Living room with dinner table and sofa are there for you to relax. I have a beamer if you want to watch a movie and a DJ-console and good stereo system if you want to play some music!
Interaction with guests
Interaction witrh guests is extremely welcome, I am always ready to give advices and suggest the best spots/restaurants/cafe depending on your taste (I have already a prepared lists of recommendation that I will share at your arrival). I am also ready to give a touristic tour on my boat for a small extra charge.
But of course I respect your privacy if you are coming to Amsterdam in search of quietness.
Other things to note
I own a small and nice boat (see last photo) and I am ready to rent it out for 20 euros/hour if you have previous experience in driving a boat or I offer guided tours along the canals for 50 euros for two hours, you decide if you want the touristic route or the less known canals (the guided tours are designed on your interests: historic tour, discover of hidden canals, cosy bars..)
I have two extra bike at the guest disposal FREE of charge, so that you can experience Amsterdam as a real Amsterdammer.
Smoking and any type of drugs are not allowed in the apartment, apart from that you are pretty free of doing what you want anyway I value kindness and not too much noise or loud music at night, also thinking about the quietness of the neighbours!
