About listing

This apartment is located in a townhouse of around 1900 in a residential district known as the Museumkwartier (the Museum quarter). Several years ago the former upper-class family houses were divided into three apartments. Ours is in the middle. The entrance of the house is characteristic for this period, with marble floors and a staircase leading to the front door and a small hall giving access to the main room, the bedroom and the sanitary facilities. The main room is a combination of sitting room, dining room and kitchen. It has a polished parquet floor and double glass windows facing south with a small balcony viewing the street scene. The bedroom and the adjacent spacious balcony overlooks private gardens. A relaxing spot for enjoying your happy hours. The bedroom, high ceiling, blue-curtained windows, has a very comfortable bed. The apartment and kitchen are fully equipped to guarantee a comfortable and wonderful stay. The Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum and Van Gogh Museum are just a few minutes’ walk away. Also the Concertgebouw is very nearby. The city’s main park, the Vondelpark, is a two minute walk and can be part of a lovely route into the city centre. This luxurious and charming apartment, is situated on walking distance from the city center and the cultural highlights of Amsterdam. Amsterdam is a city for walkers and cyclists. The location of the apartment provides an excellent operating base to explore the city. Bikes for rent at the Atlas Hotel van Eeghenstraat 64, just around the corner. But if you prefer getting around by tram, the tram stop of tramline 2, at a two minutes’ walk at the crossing with the Cornelis Schuytstraat, can be a starting point of discovering Amsterdam by public transport. According to National Geographic tramline 2 is one of the best tram rides in the world. Qualified restaurants and food stores are in abundance available in the direct neighbourhood. Our host Barbara will welcome you and make you feel very much at home. She will make sure you have all the tips and information you need to enjoy your Amsterdam stay to the fullest. We hope to welcome you soon!

    Very comfortable apartment in the museum district. Large windows, very light and bright. Located on a beautiful tree lined street with direct access to Tram #2, so easy access to and from the Central Station. Many small shops and restaurants within a five minute walk and only a 10 minute walk to the Van Gogh and Rijks Museum. Apartment has a beautiful view out of the back bedroom into a private garden. Renovated bathroom with large shower. The host Barbara is very friendly and helpful. A great place to stay for a visit to Amsterdam. 15 May 2016 - 16:10:00

    La casa situata in ottima posizione. A due passi dal museo di Van Gogh ed a 5 minuti di tram dal centro storico. Confortevole, bella con un unico vero difetto, la camera matrimoniale ha un letto molto scomodo, non all'altezza della situazione. 02 January 2017 - 07:30:00

    The apartment is lovely and spacious, with all of the amenities and supplies we could imagine needing during our visit (e.g., laundry, pots and pans, glassware, etc.). We would definitely stay here again. Perhaps more importantly, Barbara, the manager, is amazing--extremely thoughtful, gracious, and informative. She really cares about the guests. In fact, this is the second time I rented an apt from her. The first time was great, exceeding expectations, though I never wrote a review. This time, a year later, I visited with my family, and we initially rented a different apartment. Upon arrival, the (other) apartment was in bad shape, with lots of problems, and with no response from the rental company. We were pretty miserable. But as my wife begin looking for last minute alternative hotel options, I thought to send Barbara an email to see if she might have anything available beginning that very night. It was a long shot. But Barbara replied within about 15 minutes. She remembered me, and also happened to have this apartment available for the nights we needed it. I can only assume that she had to drop everything to prepare the apartment, process the reservation, and then meet us at about 9:00 pm to let us in. We were so happy and grateful. She saved our trip. And, the apartment was perfect. So, we can't say enough good things about Barbara (and the apartments she handles are very nice too!). Next time, I won't mess around with another agency but will go straight to her. 04 September 2016 - 17:21:11

    My husband and son and I stayed at the apartment for three days and had a lovely time. The rooms are exactly as pictured on the website. Barbara met us at the unit and showed us how to use the various keys, appliances and lights. She was very attentive and even provided us with a lovely bottle of wine as a welcome gift. When I noticed the shampoo and hand soap had been depleted by the last guest, she dropped off some new supplies the following morning. The location was ideal -- just a couple blocks from Vondelpark and major museums. And the kitchen had everything you'd need to prepare a meal. The fridge was rather small, but sufficient for the length of our stay. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay. 02 August 2017 - 20:42:00

    Beautiful, well appointed apartment. Loved the location as it was right on Tram Line 2. Very easy walking distance to the museum district, restaurants, and a huge park. Although we did not cook, the kitchen was well stocked. We especially loved the Nespresso coffee machine. The refrigerator was quite small and was not able hold large items. The bathroom had a beautiful, large shower, and was stocked with plenty of large, soft towels! At the end of a long day, we looked forward to returning to the apartment for a rest and a coffee. The only negative to this location was the street noise as it is on the tram line and a busy road. If the windows along the front were open, it was extremely noisy. Thankfully the bedroom is located at the back of the apartment. The front stairway up to the apartment is very steep, so it may not be suitable for anyone with mobility issues. Barbara was a gem to deal with. I would not hesitate in booking this apartment again. 20 June 2017 - 00:12:00

    This was our first vacation rental apartment in Europe, and we could have not been more pleased. Being New Yorkers, we know apartments, and this one was a great find. We were met by host Barbara, extremely friendly and a welcome sight after a red-eye flight. We were lucky in that Barbara allowed us to check in early (8:00 am) because the previously renters had left. The apartment and transportation was explained thoroughly, and we were left to explore this beautiful city. The master bed was extremely comfortable, as well as the sofa bed for our adult daughter which was located in the lovely decorated living room. The spa-like bath had robes for us, which was delightful. The location was ideal (near the Van Gogh Museum and others) and on the world-known Tram 2 line. The best feature of the apartment for us was the balcony which overlooked a lovely garden, where we enjoyed a glass of wine after long days of exploring. Barbara was quickly responsive to any questions we had during our stay, and met us upon our departure. Our deposit was returned promptly. I would highly recommend this apartment to both first-time and experienced travelers alike. We give it a A+. 23 April 2017 - 15:45:00

    We cannot say enough about how delighted we were with Mineke & Willem's flat! Barbara's communication was full of warmth and clarity from our first inquiry, but meeting her upon arrival was even better. She made herself available throughout our stay for any help we might have needed. With the detailed info folder and Barbara's walk-through, we didn't need much! We loved having the nespresso machine, washer, dryer, fridge, and cooktop. We didn't use the oven or toaster or much else in the very well-equipped kitchen but we could see that nothing would be missing if we wanted to prepare a full meal. The bathroom was spacious & luxurious, with huge fluffy towels, luxury robes, and a decadent rain shower. The bedroom had a beautiful terrace overlooking the green back gardens and was very quiet. The heavy drapes closed to afford absolute darkness. The bed, smooth sheets, fluffy duvets, and plentiful pillows made for great sleep. The location was perfect: just a few minutes' walk from the Van Gogh museum and all the others at the Museumplein. There were wonderful restaurants, shops, and the beautiful Vondelpark very close by. The area was serene and residential...I was so glad we weren't in the hectic, touristy Canal Zone, though it was easy to get there when we wanted. Our first morning, when I didn't yet have the requisite milk for my coffee, I popped around the corner to Coffee Concepts for a delicious latte. Bruno was an amazing destination for an Italian dinner, and we had a breakfast at Pompa, which also looked like it would be great for dinner. We hope to return soon with our children, and we know this flat will be great with them, too...we saw lots of games in a cabinet in the living room, and they'll love the terrace and the neighborhood. 17 April 2017 - 02:24:00

    This is a classy, well appointed, and well situated residence. Great area, close to museums, Vondel Park, and right on the tram line. Barbara met us and gave us a helpful tour of the apartment and outlined where to go in the neighborhood for groceries, shopping, etc. She also added some fresh flowers and a complimentary bottle of rose wine- much appreciated! The balcony off the bedroom overlooking green space was a lovely retreat after our busy days touring beautiful Amsterdam. Highly recommended - thank you. 18 September 2016 - 13:19:00

    Steep narrow stairway, curved at the top. No lift. Cramped bedroom. Doors on wall closets will not open. The bed will remind you of why you no longer stay in 2 star hotels. Loose wires dangle from ceilings in kitchen and living room for light fixtures. 13 August 2017 - 20:39:00

    I was there with my two sons for three nights. We felt as if we were at home. We had there everything. And it is in a very nice neighborhood. We totally recommend this place! Barbara is very agreable. Marina, argentine. 26 September 2017 - 01:43:00
