“The perfect apartment to stay in over New Years’ in Amsterdam - close to where everything is happening! Really a nice location, close to Museum Plein and many other attractions. The kitchen, lounge & one bedroom are combined into one room, but we had a comfortable stay. ”
Jan's reviewsAs a host (8)
“Rachel and Jan's apartment was a great place for me to stay while visiting my daughter. Rachel was extremely helpful in suggesting places to visit and shop at plus detailed directions on how to get to the airport! Its a great area with lots of choice in bars, restaurants and supermarkets and also very conveniently located for access to public transport. I look forward to staying again!”
“It was a pleasure to meet Rachel and Jan! They were very attentive and helpful. The flat was perfect: clean, very confortable and well located. Nice journey thanks to them! ”
“Myself and two friends stayed at Jan and Rachel's place in March. It was in a lovely neighbourhood with great restaurants and bars close by and the tram to central Amsterdam was very quick and convenient. Directions from the airport were easy to follow on public transport. It was a cold and wet weekend but the apartment was always cosy, warm and comfortable. Thanks for letting us stay as we had a truly fabulous weekend. ”
“We couldn’t have been happier with our trip to Jan and Rachel’s apartment. It is in a perfect location, within easy walking distance of public transport, excellent cafes and restaurants and tourist attractions. The trip to and from the airport was very quick and easy. Rachel and Jan were perfect hosts and gave us many helpful tips about places to visit and good places to eat and drink.....including a wonderful characterful pub with food at the end of the street. A very comfortable, well-located apartment.”
“We had a couple of days stop over in Amsterdam before boarding our ship for a cruise and this apartment was perfect for us. After a very long trip from Australia it was wonderful to find Jan and Rachael waiting to greet us and show us around. The location was great and the tram was just around the corner with direct access to the main train station and docks. Jan was a great communicator and always responded promptly. Also, Jan directed us to the very old/quaint hotel on the corner where we enjoyed a couple of beers to relax!! Many thanks again Jan and Rachael. Kerry and Chris”
“This exchange was a points swap but we got the chance to meet Rachel & Jan - they are the perfect hosts! Their Pied à Terre is lovely! Clean, well decorated and well situated. We really enjoyed our stay. ”
“What a lovely little studio apartment! We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to stay here in Amsterdam. It's clean, light, comfortable, relaxing and very well located. ”
Where is it?
Oud-West is a vibrant neighbourhood. It’s fun to explore the posh streets near Vondelpark and the ethnic grocers on De Clercqstraat and Kinkerstraat. You’ll find lots of students and young creative people in this area, as well as families with small children.
Wander through the neighbourhood streets and along the wide canals. Most of the buildings in Oud-West were constructed in the first half of the twentieth century. Some streets are really lovely with interesting details on the buildings. The streets near Vondelpark are filled with impressive 19th century houses while at the end of Jacob van Lennepkade are great apartments with all kinds of animal heads in the entryways. Cool!
