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 comfy 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!

Reviews of this property
I had a really wonderful stay at Helen's appartment. Unfortunately, I had no chance to meet her in person but the communication via E-Mail was very easy and she arranged everything just perfectly for me. I was even allowed to use her bike :) I can absolutely recommend this place. If I am coming back to Amsterdam, I will try to stay there again! Thank you again for everything, Helen!
Everything was exactly like the description: The place was colorful and snug. I mainly slept there so the room fitted my needs perfectly. I did not get to meet the friendly family but Helen made sure I was kept updated with emails about key pickup and anything else I asked… Thanks for the stay!!!
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.
the property is well located, quiet and not so far from the center (30 minutes walk from Central Station), friendly hosts, lend an old bike, but the room is tiny (3.5 m °) and without window .. ... So it's really expensive
le logement est bien situé, calme et pas si loin du centre ( 30mn à pied de la gare centrale), les hôtes sont sympas , prêtent un vieux vélo , mais la chambre est minuscule ( 3,5 m°) et sans fenêtre..... donc c'est vraiment cher
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.
Sympathetic reception by people open to contacts and share with their passing guests. Ideal for a single person who wants to discover the city. Small room, simple but quiet for sleeping.
Accueil sympatique par des gens ouvert aux contacts et partage avec leurs hôtes de passage.
Idéal pour une personne seule qui veut découvrir la ville.
Chambre petite, simple mais tranquille pour dormir.
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.
+ Description of room is accurate
+ The hosts are very friendly and helpful
+ The location is safe
+ Free Bike
+ no WLAN, but wired internet
- Room has no windows/no fresh air
- Room cannot be locked
- Bathroom/Toilet smelly and mouldy
- Kitchen cleanliness below standard
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.
