Description
Description
Welcome to our laid-back, "smoke friendly" house, where you will find a vaporiser in almost every room. It is Amsterdam after all and you'll find us in the heart of it.

We live on the lovely Keizersgracht canal and you will find us on the corner with Utrechtsestraat, just two blocks south of Rembrandtplein. So you'll find plenty of local bars, restaurants, cafes and coffee shops just around the corner.

The #4 Tram stops just outside our front door, but there is no need to buy a Tram pass as we are within walking distance to pretty much everything you are coming to see. We also have some bicycles that we are more than happy to let you use free of charge. Just let us know when you arrive. It's a fun and safe way to explore the city.

Our house is the whole 5 floor canal-side building. It's an old building that's been decorated in an eclectic and quirky style. We have divided up our house into a few single and double rooms, both with and without en-suites and a few larger self contained units we call apartments. All The rooms/apts are off a common stairway and share the same entrance, but the room/apt is your own private space that you do not need to share with anyone.

We have converted our basement into a funky space that is perfect for chilling out in.

The main room has a couple of couches that open into double beds and some pillows and mattresses around the room creating a chill-out sitting area on the floor.

There is a fully equipped kitchen so you can prepare some meals and another bedroom tucked away in the back with a large screen TV.

You also have your own private bathroom with shower and toilet downstairs.

There is a computer in the room for you to use that is connected to the internet and a server full of movies and shows for you to watch.

Free Secure WiFi is also available throughout the building for you to use. Just ask us for the password when you arrive.

We also provide sheets and towels, so you just need to bring the soap :)

We live downstairs, so we are usually around if you need any help and advice or just to hang out and chat with.

*** During New Year's and Queen's Day we have a 4 night minimum stay ***
House rules
We run a laid-back smoke friendly house. You are given access to the front door, so you are welcome to come and go as you please. All we ask is that you keep the noise and music down to a minimum late at night for the sake of our neighbours. Enjoy your stay and if there is anything that we can do for you, feel free to ask.

War ein schöner Urlaub .Die Keller-Wohnung war gemütlich und trotz Zentrum- nähe nicht laut. Mann fühlt sich wie zu Hause. Wünsche und Fragen werden erfüllt oder beantwortet .Würde das nächste mal dort wieder wohnen wollen .Wer es ausgefallen und außergewöhnlich mag ,ist dort genau richtig. Für Raucher bestens geeignet. Vermieter sind sehr nett und zuvorkommend. Gruß Moni

When we arrived we were met by lazy (nick name) who was a lovely guy and very helpful. He took us downstairs to the apartment and showed us around. At this point we were not overly impressed but we thought it would be ok.
We had a good look around and it become obvious it was NOT like home from home because we noticed it didn't have all the equipment in the kitchen like no toaster, oven so the kitchen was pointless. Sleepy showed us a whole in the ceiling in the toilet which sometimes leaks from the apartment above, not good if your on the toilet at the time. The whole place was dirty and hadn't been cleaned for a long time... There is no tv in the lounge but you do have a projector and screen to watch films etc. There was no cold water in the bathroom so had to brush teeth in the kitchen. All I kept thinking about was fire because there was NO smoke alarms in the apartment and only one window in the lounge but would be difficult to get out of. All in all we wouldn't stay there again!

I really wanna recommend this apartment to everybody who likes to hang out, doesn't like the rush of sightseeings, museums and other tourist-things, because If you can goof off in a apartment like this, you just gonna cherish the rooms and chill down.
The basement apartment didn't dash our expectations. The projector worked ass well as promised (and the large choice of movies on the computer: wooow), the flat was clean, the blankets, the dishes in the kitchen, the shower: everything was alright. When we arrived we got an ashtray to smoke inside the room. That was comfortable because it was less than 3 degrees outside!
Not only the apartment but rather the location was well! You can find coffeshops, clubs, bars and good restaurants just around the corner! Even the walkway to the central shopping area was about 5 minutes only!

Unfortunately there were some trifles somebody could be bothered about. Two dogs were permanently in the entrance area. The dogs were really lovely, but the dog food, scattered all over the corridor, was a real obstacle. Also it's good to know, that you can't flush the toilet paper into the toilet. You need to litter it into a trash can, what's embarrassing to some people after doing one's business.

All in all all the negative things we could ignore easily and we really had a nice stay in Allan's basement!
