About the apartment:
The apartment is in a monumental house and located on the top floor. Therefore the living room is very light. It has a flat screen t.v. with cable, cd/dvd player and wifi.
Through the fully equipped kitchen (we like to cook…) you can reach the bathroom with toilet and shower.
The sleeping area is upstairs and from there you can reach our wonderful and spacious roof terrace from which you can see the famous Westerchurch with its beautiful tower.
This location is just perfect for your visit to Amsterdam. The quiet Laurierstraat, where the apartment is, is in the Jordaan district, just off the Prinsengracht, part of the 17th century stunning canal belt which has been added to the Unesco World Heritage list.
In the Jordaan district there are lots of art galleries, fancy boutiques, nice restaurants and cosy bars. This neighbourhood is also famous for its markets at the Noordermarkt (Monday and Saturday), Lindengracht (Saturday) and Westerstraat (Monday).
Almost everything you will want to visit in Amsterdam is in walking distance from our house; the Anne Frank house is around the corner, just like the famous 9 streets shopping area.
The museum square with the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh museum and Stedelijk museum is a 15 minute walk.
Leidseplein, one of the major nightlife areas in town, is even closer. Dam square with the Royal Palace is only a 10 minute walk.
If you don’t like walking, no problem, from the Westermarkt, a couple of minutes from our place, you can catch many trams and busses which will take you to Central Station, the zoo or whatever part of the city you would like to visit.
You hardly ever need to transfer.
We are sure you will have a wonderful stay in our apartment.
In the apartment you will find a letter with info about transport, supermarkets, wifi-code, how to use the equipment, etc.
Please read the infoletter and the checkoutlist and respect the houserules.
Smoking, pets, vistors, drugs and parties are not allowed, and please do not make too much noise.

Key collection was indeed only towards evening possible, but everything worked as agreed. The handover was extremely friendly.
The location of the apartment in Jordaan is ideal: close to all attractions, restaurants, shops and still a bit away from the tourist bustle. The distance to the train station is also within walking distance. We have really enjoyed it.
Small disadvantage the low sleeping gallery in the gable, on which we have also become accustomed.
Die Schlüsselübergabe war zwar erst gegen Abend möglich, aber es hat alles wie vereinbart geklappt. Die Übergabe war ausgesprochen freundlich.
Die Lage der Wohnung im Jordaan ist ideal: Nah zu allen Sehenswürdigkeiten, Lokalen, Geschäften und trotzdem etwas abseits vom Touristentrubel. Die Entfernung zum Bahnhof ist auch noch fußläufig. Wir haben das sehr genossen.
Kleiner Nachteil die niedrige Schlafgalerie im Giebel, an die wir uns aber auch gewöhnt haben.
We felt very comfortable in the apartment. It is very cozy and very clean. Advantageous location, right in the center. Keys etc.vor place was totally uncomplicated. Very nice and friendly owners who are also approachable for questions and endeavor to stay as pleasant as to make.
Wir haben uns in der Wohnung wohlgefühlt. Sie ist sehr gemütlich eingerichtet und sehr sauber. Vorteilhafte Lage, mitten im Zentrum. Schlüsselübergabe etc.vor Ort war total unkompliziert . Sehr nette u freundliche Vermieter, die bei Fragen auch immer ansprechbar sind und sich bemühen den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie zu machen.
it was awesome!perfect!Bart was THE perfect host!We will come back as soon as possible; thanks a lot, Bart
We could not have asked for a better apartment for our stay. Clean, spacious, attractive and wonderfully positioned. The street was quiet and we were able to listen to the church bells tolling and the birds singing even though we were so centrally positioned. Wonderful bars, shops and restaurants round the corner and only a short walk to all attractions: Dam Square, the museums, shopping, nightclubs, coffee shops.....the lot. You want for nothing in the apartment with wi-fi, satellite TV and everything you could ask for in a kitchen and sleeping in the rafters was super and the bed was very comfortable! We love the apartment so much we hope to return for a weekend later this year.
Bart is very kind and helpful. As we were 3 adults, he prepared for my two 20 year-old sons 2 matresses.
The apartment is located ideally in a quiet, beautiful and lively area, close to a lot of places to visit. It is also well equipped.
Just keep in mind that the (nice) terrace is just aside the neighbours' one which is at the same level and offers no intimacy at all since there is no high wall to separate them.
And beware to Bart's husband (as he didn't introduce himself, I can't name him) : he didn't show any social skills as smiling and kindness, unlike Bart.
Me and my partner stayed here on my Birthday. We come to Amsterdam each year as it is by far our favorite city. Without doubt this was the best place we have stayed and would definitely book again. Very clean and comfy - in a really good location. I did not realize we had not left a review until now - unfortunately when booking for for another trip to Amsterdam, the apartment was not available. I sincerely recommend Monumental house.
Rented Bart's house for a few days and we had an amazing time. The rooftop terrace is amazing and the apartment was very nice, clean and had a lot of room. Great area close to the city center. Will definately return some day.
Bart's place is such an amazing apartment. Huge space in the perfect location. It also has a private roofdeck with great views of the city. Move-in was easy. It was super clean and nice. Highly recommended.
Very nice apartment well located in the heart of Amsterdam. Excellent home. Recommendable!
Très bel appartement bien situé dans le coeur d'Amsterdam. Excellent accueil. Recommandable !
The neighborhood could not be better located. From here, not only can the rest of the wonderful Jordaan easy to explore, but also to the city center (Dam), it is only a short hop. The Anne Frank Huis is around the corner, and even the way to the museum district (Reijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum) and we have come to the station on foot. The apartment is beautiful: A tastefully decorated cozy living room, a well equipped kitchen and a somewhat narrow bathroom. A staircase leads to the cozy bedroom, where you feel like because of the gable in a tent. From there you can also on the idyllic, quite large and stocked with plants, patio, where you must cringe a little because of the hatch. The house is located in a very quiet residential street - only the bells and the beautiful chimes of the nearby Westerkerk be heard. Everything has worked out perfectly, we felt right at home!
Das Quartier könnte nicht günstiger liegen. Von hier aus lässt sich nicht nur das restliche wunderbare Viertel Jordaan bequem erkunden, sondern auch in die Stadtmitte (Dam) ist es nur ein Katzensprung. Das Anne-Frank-Huis liegt um die Ecke, und selbst den Weg ins Museumviertel (Reijksmuseum, Van-Gogh-Museum) und zum Bahnhof haben wir zu Fuß zurückgelegt.
Die Wohnung ist wunderschön: Ein geschmackvoll eingerichtetes gemütliches Wohnzimmer, eine sehr gut ausgestattete Küche und ein allerdings etwas enges Bad. Über eine Treppe gelangt man in den kuscheligen Schlafbereich, in dem man sich wegen der Giebelform wie in einem Zelt fühlt. Von dort kommt man auch auf die idyllische, recht große und mit Pflanzen bestückte Terrasse, wobei man sich wegen der Luke ein wenig ducken muss. Das Haus befindet sich in einer sehr ruhigen Wohnstraße – nur die Glocken und das schöne Glockenspiel der nahegelegenen Westerkerk sind zu hören.
Alles hat wunderbar geklappt, wir haben uns wie Zuhause gefühlt!
