BOOKING AMSTERDAM | LAST MINUTES

From the moment of booking online till leaving the apartment I felt taken care of. I was in contact with Vivian, who takes care of Esther’s apartments. She was quick with her replies to all my questions (I had many…) and also gave me awesome hints and tricks for my first stay in Amsterdam. Vivian was available and very flexible for our check-in time. The apartment itself was clean and made me feel at home. It is an apartment which doesn’t leak of character. Only the floor was pretty cold and I would recommend to future guests to bring warm socks or house shoes. In summertime, one might be happy with the cold. Heating, Wifi, hot water, beds: all perfect. The apartment is perfectly situated for guests who like to spend time in the city centre. Only a 10 minutes walk and you are there and still the road at the apartment is very quiet. The church bells are something different. I didn’t mind but my friend recommends earplugs. I highly recommend this apartment and will book again for the next time. Best regards Kim
Pros: The hotel staff were very friendly and responsive. We were upgraded to a nice room. The breakfast was fantastic, probably the best we had had in a long time. The location is perfect for any visitor and Amsterdam is one of the most picturesque cities in the world. Also to note, people in Amsterdam (including all the hotel staff) were extremely friendly and ready to help. Loved it!
Trance music is very popular in the Netherlands and home to some of the scene’s leading talent, including DJs such as Armin van Buuren and Tiesto. Every October, Amsterdam hosts the Amsterdam Dance Event which is one of the biggest electronic music festivals in the world.
De Jordaan is van oorsprong een arbeiderswijk, maar heeft nu een hippe, artistieke sfeer, met smalle straatjes en verborgen hofjes. Er wonen veel kunstenaars, en u vindt er originele design- en modewinkels en galerieën. Op maandagen is er ‘s ochtends de drukbezochte lapjesmarkt op de Noordermarkt en de Westerstraat. Bekijk hotels.
Cons: Asked for a toothbrush, it never arrived. Several plug sockets in the room didn’t work. Spa is very basic, only a sauna available. Breakfast was a bit chaotic with food arranged around an open kitchen – needs improvement.

For food on the go, chips with peanut sauce (another Indonesian fusion) are a very addictive Dutch snack and can be bought at most street stands. Raw herring may not sound appetising to everyone, but, served with onions, is another popular street food snack.
“Geweldig hotel! Voorzien van alle luxe en vriendelijk personeel. Wij hebben bij Sazanka gegeten, fantastisch!! Ruime keuze bij het ontbijt. Spa en zwembad heerlijk!! Lounge op 23 etage fantastisch uitzicht.”
This B&B boutique hotel is in the city’s 9 straatjes (9 streets) area, which is famous for its excellent shops. This hotel’s suites and apartments are very quirky, the perfect base for those interested in art and vintage style.
“Mooie locatie dicht bij station Amsterdam Bijlmer Arena waar je met de trein binnen 15 minuten in hartje Amsterdam stond. Verder nette kamers en goede parkeergelegenheid bij de P+R onder de Arena (1 euro per dag wanneer het openbaar vervoer werd gebruikt om naar het centrum te komen)”
Cons: Lounge didn’t have food available all the time Lounge should open at 5 am We were with my handicap father and the hotel lobby is handicap accessible but it would be a real problem if he had to leave quickly.
Pros: I liked that the location was farther from the tourist areas but still within easy reach of anywhere in Amsterdam you might want to go. Great bar nearby with fantastic patio area called Meneer Nieges. The nearby Jordaan neighborhood is wonderful to explore, especially around sunset.
The apartment was perfect for our stay. We were initially hesistant that the noise around Leidesplein may ruin our vacation, but we were surprised that the nosie (even at 4 or 5 in the morning) didn’t bother us! The apartment was clean and very comfortable.
Pros: It’s right in the center of things and I had no problem walking to most of the hotspots in the city which was awesome. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Great design of the place as the rooms are pretty stunning. Would def recommend to others
Pros: The INK hotel is in the perfect spot and it’s a gorgeous boutique. The room had very unique, modern decor with stylish writing on the walls. I worried that the look might come off cheesy, but it was very well done. Loves the staff, restaurant, and bar!

Amsterdam is a busy tourist destination and arriving with a room reservation may be crucial. It is advisable to book accommodation well in advance for the main tourist season, as well as for weekends and festive events.
“My girlfriend and I arrived with chest infections – at reception, the young guy with short dark hair was extremely helpful and arranged our doctor’s appointment. He saved my holiday. All other staff were lovely too”
Pros: I spent two nights at the NH Barbizon and I only have positive things to say. It was a group of 5 friends and we couldnt be happier with our stay. The hotel in itself is beautifully decorated. The location is excellent across from Amsterdam Central and all the trolleys, but the best part of the hotel was the staff. Daniel helped my friends and I not only with our luggage, but with advice on getting around the city, recommendations for restaurants, and sightseeing. Overall great experience, and upon my return to Amsterdam I will definitely stay here and hope to get assistance from Daniel!

Good afternoon Mo I’d just like to say thanks for letting me and my 2 friends stay in your fantastic Hollywood apartment. It was my 16th trip to Amsterdam and the second time I have stayed in your apartment which has to be the greatest place I have stayed in the many times I’ve been there. The location is fantastic and your hospitality is first class and I’m always comfortable & never once have i never felt relaxed during my stay. Your apartment decor is fun and quirky which I always enjoy when I stay there. I hope we were not to noisy and your apartment was tidy after we left. I look forward to staying at your Hollywood apartment again hopefully in September or early next year. Thanks for a great stay Regards Rob Norris

HOTELS


Posh boutique hotels join 5-star accommodation in the Grachtengordel canal district, which is home to the city’s four main canals. Dating from the 17th century, this historic region is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Cons: Small room, tiny bathroom Room unclean, dirty carpet: when we first came into the room, there was a bit of paper on the floor. It was not hidden or difficult to get. I left it there on purpose and it stayed there for three days. It was finally removed (vacuumed?)
This is a peaceful suburb situated close to Waterlooplein. The area includes the house of the Dutch painter, Rembrandt, the Hermitage Museum and the Tropenmuseum. You can also enjoy nature in the Botanical Gardens (Hortus Botanicus) and at Artis, the city zoo. View hotels.
De Plantage is een rustige buurt, dicht bij het Waterlooplein. Hier vindt u het Rembrandthuis, het Hermitage Museum en het Tropenmuseum. In de Hortus Botanicus kunt u genieten van bijzondere planten; dierentuin Artis is een belevenis apart. Bekijk hotels.
Dutch pancakes are a popular meal that every visitor should try, we recommend Pannenkoekenhuis Upstairs (so long as you don’t mind the steep staircase up to the restaurant) which serve generous sized helpings of this favourite, the bacon and syrup pancake being particularly delicious.
Hi, I would just like to say that the apartment was fantastic. The location was second to none, it was spacious and clean, and the check in/out was quick and easy. The owner was very friendly and kept in contact. I will definitely be using this accommodation again, provided it is available !!. Thanks
Like most major cities Amsterdam is made up of a collection of neighbourhoods, each one with its own personality and selling points. There’s the 9-Straatjes, a small area in the centre that boasts lots of narrow streets lined with quirky shops and cafes. The Centrum is in a similar area and is perhaps the busiest spot in the city. It has a plethora of museums, lively bars, and top-notch shops that are a big hit with tourists and locals. Then there’s De Pijp, which is similar to the 9-Straatjes in appearance but has a lot fewer tourists. This is where you’ll find lots of the markets and local, independent stores. Jordaan is one of the best-loved neighbourhoods in the city, and is home to a lot of young creatives, up-and-coming bars, and street art. NDSM-Werf is similar to Jordaan in that it is hugely creative and is called home by a number of artists, musicians, and students. Then there’s Oud-Zuid, the richer part of the city that caters to expensive tastes and luxury desires.
With its liberal attitude towards sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll Amsterdam has become a firm favourite with stag parties, hen do’s, and students. It’s not all red lights and coffee shops, however. The capital of the Netherlands is home to hundreds of museums and art galleries, colourful flower markets, sprawling parks and quaint cobbled streets. A wide array of independent shops, flea markets and vintage boutiques makes it a dream destination for fashionistas and hipsters.
Business travellers may prefer to stay in Amsterdam’s Zuidas district. Known as the city’s “Financial Mile,” the region is located between the city centre and Schiphol Airport and features a range of business hotels near the RAI Convention Centre.
Thank you, we had a wonderful stay in Amsterdam in “Happy Charm”. The host is a really a charming man and helpful host. The apartment is spacious, well equipped and comfortable. Although it is not really within walking distance of the city centre, it is incredibly easy to get to via tram 1 — as the on and off stops are just outside the door. And the location is great, backing onto Vondelpark, very close to all required services, and a comfortable walk to the museum area.
The Royal Theatre Carré was originally designed as a circus theatre in 1887 and now features acclaimed shows like The War Horse and performers such as Emmylou Harris, Elvis Costello, and Marianne Faithfull.
