    After extensively searching many online sites for the best and cheapest place to stay in Amsterdam, I found this apartment and booked it. Unfortunately, my family had to change our plans and would not be visiting Amsterdam. Paul was very friendly and courteous and gave me my deposit back without a hassle. I look forward to staying in his beautiful home next year when we visit. Happy travels! :) 04 May 2012 - 17:55:22
  2. If you are traveling to Dam and want a central place that is nicely located next to the grocery and other shops, Paul's place will be perfect. He is an easygoing host, and the flat has all you need: modern appliances, gas stove, oven/micro, bath, shower, etc. A smallish inner courtyard allows light and air to move through the house quickly, and the table and chairs there are perfect for meals, coffee, or just whatever! Open the door and you are basically looking at the grocery store; turn to your right or left and you've got the canals. Yet the flat is on a quiet street, and is a great place to relax after a day out, or for preparing to explore the city nightlife. 29 May 2012 - 11:37:16

    We actually arrived at the end of May last year, spending the entire month of June. While the apt could use some upgrading, it was large, had everything we needed and was steps away from everything: grocery store, bakery, markets, canal. We had a wonderful month there. Paul, the owner, was incredibly helpful to us. over and above anything expected in a landlord. One year later, we look back on our month there with much nostalgia. 03 June 2012 - 17:21:03

    This place was perfect for myself and three of my friends to stay for a couple of days. It was spacious and close to everything we needed. Wifi was included and we knew if we had any questions, Paul would be happy to answer. The bathroom needs a little upgrading, but other than that it was absolutely perfect. Thanks for a being a great host, Paul! 12 September 2012 - 13:12:38

    My partner, brother and I were looking for a "home" to base ourselves for a couple of weeks in Amsterdam and the three of us couldn't have asked for anything more. I wholeheartedly agree with all the previous positive reviews... Paul's apartment is perfectly located in a beautiful corner of Amsterdam, close to all your needs and is just a delight to walk out and start exploring the city (in fact I could probably just spend 2 weeks shopping and walking Jordaan alone!) Best of all, it is so relaxing and comfortable to come home to after a big day out. It is not a modern, fancy home and nor did we expect that but it is extremely cosy and we felt at home from day one. Coming from Australia we weren't sure how we would handle the winter chills but it was toasty warm in the apartment and we didn't need any extra blankets (though there was plenty there). We actually left Amsterdam for a few nights to continue on our journey but we all missed Paul's place so much we decided to return for a few more days. Paul was very easy to deal with and we had no hassles whatsoever. The markets (literally around the corner on Saturday) were wonderful to stock up on amazing fresh food (my fave - wild mushrooms galore!) and tempting to try and fit an antique oddity into the suitcase to take home. We had the best holiday and would have no hesitation in booking Paul's place next time we come back to Amsterdam (hopefully soon!!) 15 January 2013 - 22:16:14

    This ground floor apartment was quite handy during my 14th overall and 8th solo trip to Amsterdam. This was my third vacation rental property in succession, and I don't see any reason to use a hotel any more, honestly. The overall VALUE for the money would render a 5-star rating. I reckon it is impossible to beat a 210 Euro stay during 3 nights in off-peak mid-January. One would be hard-pressed to find a hotel in a similar neighborhood for twice that amount. The apartment came with its own private door entrance, for which the key worked well. The unit is located on a quiet street, yet not more than a 10 minute walk to most all things in the Centrum. The unit was PLENTY spacious for one and would be comfortable for up to 3-4 people, depending on the extent of your stay. The owner, Paul, was very easy to work with, and ultimately laid-back and friendly. My rating did not garner a full, 5-star rating based upon 2 reasons: 1) Computer/internet, advertised herein, did not function at all. I am not one that uses much internet while on vacation, but I like "having access" handy...just in case. This trip would prove to be just that case. I inadvertently left my wallet in a restaurant in the U.S. the night prior to my trip, and was left in a financial bind, in terms of accessing cash. Use of handy internet would have eased my minor "issue" more expeditiously in the home, but, no large deal in the grand scheme; as I accessed cash eventually and used internet elsewhere. 2) the bathroom. was not as disenchanted as some reviewers seemed, however, the toilet, located only feet from your resting head (in king-sized) bed, did have somewhat of a sewage odor, but one must realize, you are in Europe on a ground floor, and some odor is somewhat expected. You can close the bathroom door to eliminate any odor eminating into the bedding quarters. The shower did have a moderate musty/mildewey smell, and though not bothersome, the three-foot radius of tile around toilet region floor did "squish," when walked upon, but no water surfaced. with the above being mentioned, I still give this place four enthusiastic stars. my candor should also speak to the sincerity of a "real" scenario/description. another highlight is the centre courtyard, which affords privacy, a cool outdoor space, and a place to ventilate your smoke, if needs be. 26 January 2013 - 05:39:10

    The apartment is centrally located - not too far from the Centraal Station and close to the Westerkerk and AnneFrankhuis as well as a number of friendly little Dutch pubs. There was plenty of room for the four of us and all the basic amenities you would need - oven, microwave, refrigerator and an available computer with Wi-Fi. The area seemed safe and well-lit at night. Just around the corner from a canal. It was not too clean when we arrived but there was a vacuum cleaner and supplies available. Overall it was a comfortable, safe place. I would certainly return and I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a reasonable, convenient and delightful place to rest their head after a busy day in Amsterdam. 25 April 2013 - 20:27:44

    All Amsterdam flats are long and narrow. Taxes are based on the width of the frontage. This is a ground floor flat which was probably once a storefront. The floor in the living room and kitchen area are well worn and uneven wood planks.. The living room has a sofa and a daybed, two chairs and a desk. The kitchen is equipped as described by the owner, Paul. The bathroom has a large shower and a separate very large bathtub. The sink is also extra large. The bathroom floor is level and a nice slate tile. A skylight with a vine growing on it makes the room very well bright. For our week, there was absolutely no smell, nor moldiness. It is not a four star hotel, but neither is the price. Location: On a quiet street with the main drag just down an alley. Several more than adequate restaurants are within two blocks of the flat. A good supermarket, Jumbo, is a block away. Laundromat is on the main drag. ATM's are also close. A major tram station is four blocks (3 canals) away. Also two different temporary markets occurred during our six night stay. One food oriented, the other merchandise at very reasonable prices. We had a great time. 02 May 2013 - 20:24:22

    This apartment is perfect for any visit to The Dam. My husband and I stayed there for 8 days and had a great time. The space is large and open, with a wonderful closed in patio and bathroom with skylight with Tulip Tree branches over it that were in bloom during our stay. The neighborhood is quiet and Paul is always ready and willing to help. The place was stocked with Maps and other information regarding things to see/do while in Amsterdam. There were plenty of clean towels and sheets and dishes/glasses. There was even a bottle of wine awaiting our arrival. The flower arrangements and candles added to the overall experience. We did not try to use the computer on the on a desk in the living room, we used our own laptop and had no problem with connecting. It would have been nice to have a printer so we purchased one so that we could print our Tour Tickets when we made reservations online and also we could print our Plane Boarding Passes. We left the printer in the apartment and hope it is still there when we come back! We also experienced some sewer smell for a couple of hours one day from the bathroom although we could not tell where it was coming from - it did dissipate fairly quickly. Yes, there is a little bit of mildew in the caulk in the shower but it was insignificant as far as we were concerned. Yes, the wooden flooring is old and squeeky but that just adds to the charm. The only suggestions we can make are two: 1) Replace that bedroom carpet, and 2) Get sheets that fit the King Bed properly. THANKS PAUL - WE WILL BE BACK!!! :D 13 May 2013 - 17:57:59

    This apt was in a GREAT neighbourhood and location, lots of services but away from the hustle and bustle closer to the Central Station. Yet still close enough to walk to many attractions. Host is very friendly and helpful. The bathroom renovation was a little rough around the edges, but everything works. This is more than made up for by king size bed, huge living room and fully equipped kitchen. If you want 5 star luxury, this isn't for you. But if you are a family (or have mobility issues and can't do a lot of stairs, this is excellent value. Private, peaceful and around the corner from the famous Winkel apple pie. I would stay there again, and would recommend it to friends who "fit" what I have described. 19 June 2013 - 18:31:29

    First positives- a great location, a personable accessable accommodating owner. Large space, huge bathroom. Negatives- just one: not sufficiently clean- dusty, worn out living room. 04 August 2013 - 05:44:16

    As a group of four we stayed for four nights at Paul's apartment in Jordaan. Already knowing Amsterdam I found the location to be very convincing, a few steps away from the beautiful but touristy Grachtenarea (Grachtengordel) yet at the same time in a still very lively and attractive residential area that offered the best of both doing 'tourist stuff' and staying somewhere where it is calm and quiet. The flat has all the things you might need but probably won't, large kitchen, large living room, large and plain bathroom and a small backyard. There were three bicycles available which were good for a short trip but are maybe not the best for heavy duty bicycling. Contact with Paul was very pleasant and straight forward, he gave us tips on where to park the car safely (and affordably) and what to explore in the area and where to do the groceries, etc. I do recommend this apartment, as a matter of fact I a few weeks after our stay I would have liked to return but unfortunately it was already booked, so it has to be the next year then! 08 August 2013 - 18:13:54

    Three of us stayed in this apartment on the weekend of the 22nd Nov for two nights. We found the apartment to be excellent and exactly what we were looking for. Paul, the owner, met us on Friday evening and showed us the apartment, where everything was etc and then left us to it. The apartment has everything you need, from sleeping to all utensils including a couple of bikes that we used on Saturday to cycle round the city (one of us felt too unwell to venture out :-). Full wifi internet connection as well, which made it very easy to plan out what were doing. The Jordaan area it is in is lovely, with a weekend market just round the corner and everything else within a 10 minutes walk. The area has some great cafes / food places along with some nice bars along with some coffeeshops if that is what you are after. Overall we will be back, very happy with this as it suited our needs very well. 25 November 2013 - 16:11:05

    My husband and I just returned from two weeks in Amsterdam and were very happy with our main floor (no stairs, hooray!) apartment in the Jordaan--the city's "most charming" neighbourhood. We had an overnight flight from Toronto so arrived by taxi (haven't learned to pack light) at around 9:00 a.m., but Paul was there to greet us and show us around. Cleaning was still underway, so we left our bags and set out to walk to the Central Station to buy our transit passes which we put to good use on the trams and buses during our stay. Tram 3 and 10 from Marnixplein were our favourites and only a short and pleasant walk away along Westerstraat past the two supermarkets opposite one another--Jumbo on the west side and Albert Heijn on the east side and also past a number of other shops, cafes, etc. We loved the neighbourhood with its organic food market on Saturday and flea/clothes market on Monday. Especially loved Winkel's famous apple cake. We had dinner there twice, and I can recommend both meals we had there, the salmon and the steak, both perfectly cooked and presented. Our host, Paul, couldn't have been nicer or more accomodating. Re the apartment, we appreciated the vase of fresh flowers and bottle of wine, the very comfortable king-size bed, the large double closet with plenty of clothes hangers and built-in chest of drawers. The hair dryer was old but worked fine. The shower was big with plenty of hot water and good pressure. We used the gas stove and microwave a lot but mainly used the dishwasher as a dish drain as we never dirtied enough dishes in a day to warrant turning it on. There were lots and lots of dishes, pots and pans, and glasses of all sorts. It was also nice to have a t.v. that received a few English-language stations (CNN, BBC, TLC) as we failed to learn more than basic phrases in Dutch. All-in-all, we were very happy with this perfectly-located, large and bright apartment in Amsterdam. 09 May 2014 - 10:03:45

    We stayed in this apartment for 3 nights as a family of 5. We loved everything about the place, the neighbourhood and the hosts. It's a fantastic location, walkable to anything and everything. Thankyou for your warm welcome and to your family making my kids feel so special. 14 July 2014 - 16:33:29

    I went there for 3 days with 4 friends, it was our first visit to Netherlands and Wendy told us about everything, she was so kind. We enjoyed the stay so much. The apartment is really nice, it has everything to make your stay comfortable, and they even gave us bicycles. I'm sure I'm going to repeat the experience! 21 August 2015 - 11:33:40

    I stayed at this apartment with 4 friends (5 20 year old boys in total) and had an amazing time! The apartment had everything we needed, had enough space and was close to everything. We liked how we was away from the busy part of the city and could just chill out in the apartment if needed. The weather was very cold but the heating was working well all weekend. Considering there was 5 young boys staying there, we didn't once need to contact Paul and had no problems at all. Also Paul is a lovely helpful man! 24 November 2015 - 15:35:43

    Great Location and a great experience. We had a few little things but nothing major. We would DEFINETLY stay here again. 29 September 2015 - 21:42:12

    We encountered one major problem, which, until it is fully and completely remedied by a professional builder, requires me to post a one star review, and provide a warning to others. The combination of the toilet and loose floor tiles was a show-stopper. Seriously. Absolutely. Appallingly. Disgusting. The owner had obviously had toilet problems in the apartment, since he mentioned it during our initial tour, and there were two used toilets sitting outside in the courtyard. After our first night, I noticed more wetness on the floor around the toilet than one would expect. Further investigation in the morning showed that the drain line was not even properly attached to the back of the toilet, and I could see through the gap between the toilet porcelain and the plastic drain at the connection point. Yes, that meant the water on the floor came from the toilet. From the business end of the toilet. Okay, I've installed a few toilets in my day, and consider myself moderately handy. It only took a few minutes to get the drain reconnected, and the plastic seal back over the porcelain. Except that the toilet rocked. On loose black 60x60cm tiles with missing grout. Not a problem!! I cut up some plastic to make some shims to put between the toilet and the tiles, and leveled the toilet. Now we're ready to rock, I think to myself. Except that the loose tiles with the loose grout were effectively floating in a cesspool, with raw sewage mist blasting into the air at the joints. Little fountains of feces burbled from each and every step as the loose tiles wobbled and forced air and a foul cesspool mist out at the joints. I bleached the floor, but I am pretty certain my diarrhea the next day was caused by the fecal mist. Don't stay here until that bathroom is gutted down to the brick structural elements, has all wood removed, and is basically rebuilt from the foundation up by certified tradesmen. As a confirmation of the lack of ongoing investment by the owner, the fitted sheets on the main bed were too small, and would come loose at the corners during the night. Combined with the damaged front blinds and insubstantial front curtains on a well-lit street, you have to ask why the owner won't even put 100 euros into the simple and easily remedied problems. I can make a bed, and it is pretty obvious when the sheets are too small for a bed. This is something you know before you even finish putting them on. This apartment would otherwise be three stars or more. 11 April 2015 - 03:28:22
