Cute Room in Central Amsterdam
|住所||Barentszstraat, 1013NS Amsterdam, オランダ|
This is a relaxed apartment only 10 minutes away from Amsterdam Central Station. It is cozy and colorful and it is composed by 3 tiny bedrooms, one living room, a kitchen and a bathroom. You will stay in one of the bedrooms and share the living room, bathroom and kitchen with others. The bedroom is VERY SMALL, not 5-star quality, but colorful and friendly.
There is normally a free bike to explore the city and we also provide a free tour of night life in the weekend if we are around.
The apartment is located in a beautiful 19th century house within short walking distance to cafes, restaurants, coffee-shops, supermarkets, and tram and bus stops.
We normally rent our apartment, when we (a family with three children) are on holiday. The house is family-friendly, but any type of tourists (as long as you don’t smoke inside) is welcome!
You can take a train from the airport to Amsterdam Central Station.
You can get to our house from Central Station either by bus 48 that goes in the direction of Sloterdijk (two stops, get off at Barentszplein) or by walking - about 15 minutes from behind Central Station (just walk parallel to the water from the back exit of the station and then turn left in Barentszsplein - see Google maps).
A more expensive but also a more comfortable alternative is taking a taxi from the airport.
We are looking forward to welcoming you!
Helen and her family made me feel most welcome. Very warm and loving. They did not hesitate in offering me advice on the city and gave me the loan of a bicycle too.Wonderful people.
Thanks to Helen and her family for being such gracious hosts, offering not only hospitality but conversation and shared interest. Very much appreciated.
many thanks for your hospitality. It was really an nice adventure an staying. I have seen some good pubs and people. Good talks with all members of the family made the two days round.
Very small teenager's bedroom. Neither window nor table/desk to work. But anyway, quite nice to sleep one or two nights. Very kind family and area not so far from the center.

All in all not a pleasant experience considering the daily rate. Although Helen and her family are really charming and helpful, the amenities were less appealing, hygiene is an issue. According to Helen she will take care of these issues, so the future will tell.
A nice wee place to chill out at after a busy day/night in Amsterdam. Helen (even though she was away on holiday during my stay) was very hospitable and welcoming with a map and towels. Would recommend :)
I had such a pleasant stay with Helen and her family! Having the help to find the things I wanted to do and see, leaving me wanting to go back and visit again! I am so glad I had this opportunity to meet great people I would have otherwise never got to know! Thank you so much :)
The room was cosy and the hosts are very kind and were like good friends. They showed me interesting places in Amsterdam and we even went to the cinema.
