Everything is perfect, just stairs are a bit dangerous, especially at night when you want to go to toilet 2 flors downstairs.

We spent 3 wonderful days. The location is superb. Right in the centre. Danny was very helpful. The only word of caution, the stairs are extremely steep so if you have mobility problems beware. If you can cope with the stairs there is a nice balcony to enjoy a drink and some local fresh food. Would definitely book again

We have been in Amsterdam four times and this was the best place we stayed. The localization is really good. Few minutes by walking to markets, shops, pharmacy and restaurants. Kitchen with equipment necessary for make some food . The oner was friendly and kind with us all the time. The price is quite high but accommodation in Amsterdam is expensive everywhere.
