We felt at home 

april 2012, Tobias (airbandb)

We were 3 people staying for 3 nights at Frank´s apartment and we had a great time!  Frank is a very friendly host and if you need something he lives right next to the apartment.  The apartment was very nice, comfortable and is very well equipped  with all things you need ( towels, hairdryer, kitchen accessories etc.) After less than an hour we already felt like home, especially because of the many lights  that create a really cosy atmosphere... The neighborhood is quite, safe and Shopping facilities and public transportation are really close  and easy to find! And what´s also really good is that you can reach all the important sights by foot ! ( that´s anyway the best way to explore the city with its many little streets and places) All in all we had a pleasant stay and can definitely recommend the apartment!!

Had a great time

15 December 2011, MWR

Had a great time and found the apartment comfortable and very functional. It was rainy and the apartment, probably like most in central Amsterdam, had very few windows so there is a bit of a cave like feel to the place. The property owners were good and all of the transactions were easy and as expected.

could not have been better

29 November 2011, Marta

The truth is that my first visit to the city could not have been better, respect to the housing.

The house is very well located within 15 minutes walk, you are in the center, is very friendly (and is larger than it looks in the photos), has all necessary amenities stile / designee, and is especially warm , which is appreciated after having been all day sightseeing.

both myself, my boyfriend and my sister, who were the ones that  enjoyed the apartment, definitely recommend it.

Excellent apartment in ideal location

26 October 2011, Andrea Smith

This was our 3rd stay in Amsterdam, so have become custom to very small rooms. However, we were very surprised at the size of this apartment, great space. It was very clean and modern, with all gadgets available.
It is not quite in the centre, but the metro staion is about 50 metres from the front door, and costs less than 3 Euros to get to central station, even catching a cab back late at night was only 8 Euros.
As we were so near to the centre we didn't really look around the immediate area apart from visiting the local supermarket just around the corner, but it seemed quite at night, even with the ambulance station being a couple of doors down.
We visited late October and the apartment was lovely and warm, host was very helpful and friendly. We would definately recomment this apartment and will be booking again if we return to Amsterdam.

A good place to stay 

25 September 2011, Eric Fauque

I stayed in AS25 for around 7 weeks while I was working in Amsterdam.
The apartment is well situated and well equipped.
Like others have said, it is next to an ambulance depot.
But they do not make much noise and they wait until they are on the main street before they turn on their sirens. I'm a light sleeper and that did not bother me at all.

So all in all, it's a great apartment with all the equipment you need to feel at home.
And Frank is a great host!

New entrance (note from the owners)

16 September 2011, Frank

Hi all, due to the suggestions of a guest we recently changed the entrance of the appartment, there is now a private entrance, and plenty of extra ventilation opportunities. We believe this will add to your comfort an pleasurable stay in our wonderful city! We look forward to be your host, best of regards, Frank and Thea

Review of Guesthouse Amsterdam

myrna donahoe, 4 November 2010

was great--walking distance to everything, metro right near by. Apt. well furnished
and very comfortable. Frank very hospitable. Never met Thea. Everything very
clean. Overall, very enjoyable stay and would stay here again.

Pefect for my needs

Nigel maddocks, 25 October 2010

I stayed here for 8 nights in October and it was perfect for what I needed.

As noted in the description the kitchen is particualry good and well kitted
out. I used the kitchen virtually everyday after shopping at the Albert Heijn
supermarket down the road (about a 4/5 minute walk.

It's very well located - only a 10/15 minute walk from
Waterlooplein/Rembrandtplein and literally opposite a metro stattion
(Weesperplein).

There a decent cafe next door but I didn't eat there. There is another bar on
the other end of the street which seemed busy but again didn't eat there.

Would stay there again.

Great Host & Nice Location

Mark Zuzinec, 19 September 2010

I recently spent 5 nights at this large studio apt. and was very pleased with my choice.
The metro is extremely close and is only 3 stops from Central Station; once
settled in, we found the nearby trams very easy to use. Unfortunately, the
washer/dryer was out of order when we arrived. Our wonderful host, Frank,
offered to do a load for us, which was much appreciated after spending 2 weeks
in France with no facilities

Cool Apartment Great Stay

Guiseppe, 14 September 2010

We spent a great time in this apt, perfect position close to waterloo plein, very clean
and Frank was really a special person!

El apartamento nos ha encantado

Raquel, 23 August 2010
 

El apartamento nos ha encantado y es muy acogedor, la situación estupenda, el trato muy cordial.

Pensamos que deberia tener en el apartamento: escoba, recogedor, fregona, y mas cubiertos.

Atentamente, Pura y Raquel

Great Apartment

James Wilson, 24 May 2010
 

My wife and I spent 5 lovely days in Amsterdam 5/17-22, 2010. Frank Honig, the owner (didn't get a chance to meet Thea) was great. Our train arrived late, close to midnight, but he let us in and gave us the tour of the apartment. The apartment itself was charming, very clean and servicable. Kitchen well supplied, bed very comfortable, neighborhood quiet in spite of ambulance garage next door! They must wait until they're around the block to turn on the sireen because we were never woken up! Nice cafe next door and grocery store 2 blocks away. Great area of town, easy to walk everywhere.
Clothes washer was not working when we were there, but no worries, Frank did our laundry and left it folded outsidde our door-fantatstic!

Frank has a reliable car service which we used to get to Schiphol airport. Marcel arrived on time at 5:30am in a s new Audi S8 and we were there in under 20 minutes.

We would definitely stay here again - Thanks Frank!!!!

Very nice apartment!
 

Pierre Soubie, 15 March 2010 

We have been welcomed by the owner even if we came from the airport at 11 pm.
The owner was very kind and helpful.
The apartment is very cosy, design and clean.
It is placed at 5 minutes from the city center by walk.
I will come back to the same apartement next time.

You have to stay here!

Colin O'Sullivan, 2 September 2009 

*Sorry not my computer and it doesn't have spell check. I am a horrible speller, sorry*

So the aptartment was very clean and had all one would need (full kitchen, large bathroom, TV, bed, and the most comfortable cot I have slept on). It is just outside, what I would call, the city "center." So it is a quiet get away from the hustle and bustle; while an easy walk to all the attractions.

Our flight was late in getting in, yet the owner made himself available to make sure we could check in and get the key.

It was so nice that we had a couple friends from Amsterdam come over for dinner our last night.

This is where I will stay my next visit

Beautiful holiday

Valeria e Stefano Bocini, 24 August 2009

Frank & Thea .... thank for all !!!
Beautiful Holiday for me and Stefano
the house is beauty , confort and your privacy it's ok !
Se you soon
bye bye Valeria

Nice, comfortable apartment

Philipp & Sara,  26 July 2009

Guesthouse Amsterdam is perfect for a couple, who likes to live in the city centre of Amsterdam. You don't need any vehicule, because you can reach all sightseeing points in A'dam by foot. We loved to stay in this apartment! It is spacious, has a great kitchen, the bed is comfortable, it has a nice bathroom etc. Our hosts were very nice and we felt really welcome 

Maravilloso

Olga Merino, 24 May 2009

He pasado 14 días maravillosos en el apartamento de Frank y Thea. Son muy amables y siempre están dispuestos a ayudar en todo lo que se necesita.
El apartamento está magnificamente situado, junto a la parada de metro y tranvías, aunque se puede ir andando al centro de la ciudad. Y está muy bonito decorado y completamente preparado para una estancia agradable y tranquila.
Tiene un supermercado grande muy cerca y muchos restaurantes a 15 minutos andando.
Muchas gracias Frank y Thea por vuestro precioso apartamento.

Nice apartment!

Hi everybody !!

First of all, congratulations for choosing Amsterdam as destination ! You'll enjoy it for sure and your stay will be really different if you choose an accomodation such as this one rather than staying in any hotel you would find anywhere!!

This apartment is well located, not too far from main interesting areas. You will find everything you need to enjoy your stay there (except an ashtray as the apartment is non smoking! :-).

The host is very nice and is available in case of problems during the stay (he leaves in the same building).....but we hadn't any problem so we just saw him upon arrival!!

I hope you'll enjoy your stay ! Have a good trip!!

Hi there,

 

I would just like to say that apartment Guesthouse Amsterdam was a great place. The location was a plus, right around the corner from the Metro and Tram. It was clean and well equipped The owners Frank and Thea where a great help with information and a cab service

to the airport. I would recommend this place if you want some quite and not in the little of all the chaos, yet very close to everything. The cafe on the corner is awesome great food and coffee.

 

Best Regards, Janet from Toronto Canada- Oct.2008

Perfect...

Yvonne Arnold, 23 July 2008

The location is perfect - you can basically walk anywhere. Bus station is in the next street, not even 50 Meter away. Cafes, Zen-Yoga retreat and supermarket in 30 seconds distance. The apartment itself is bright, clean, new, wonderful design. The person who took care of the apartment at the time was very nice, professional, open and easy going. There was a bottle of wine in the fridge when we arrived... This place is for everyone who is looking for an oasis. Amsterdam is wonderful and so is this non-smoking place. We had throughout the complete time cold and rainy weather, but this place and the city made up for it. Highly recommended especially for people with allergies. Wooden floor, leather coach, Bosch-fridge. Anytime again. Price ok, too.

Great location

Duncan Turner, 24 June 2008
e-mail: duncan (dot) turner (at) manchester (dot) ac (dot) uk

Great location (10 metres from Metro!), very well equipped apartment with helpful owners (on site). Lots of supermarket shopping available within 2 or 3 minutes.
Everwhere within walking distance - if you don't mind walking and chancing the cyclists!! However, I'd recommend hiring a cycle or getting to know the Metro system. It would make life easier - if a little unhealthier! Definately will be returning to the City - and probably to Guesthouse Amsterdam.

Great flat...perfect for people with allergies!

Jacob and Juli, 24 May 2008
e-mail: juliafarshim (at) yahoo (dot) de

We were quite impressed with the flat. It was chic, stylish, and immaculately clean. There is a wonderful fully stocked kitchen and hardwood floors. It is perfect for people with dust mite allergies! The flat is only 3 metro stops from the centre, located 10 m. from a nice café, and a 2 minute walk from a supermarket. The host is very friendly and extremely helpful, plus he speaks fluent German. Guests also get a bottle of wine as a welcoming gift. Comes highly recommended.

Snug as a bug in a rug

“I stayed at Frank's apartment for four nights in January 2008 and found it very convenient - especially the access to the metro station which is literally over the street and had me at my daily destination of RAI within twenty minutes each day for a pittance. The studio itself is very well equipped if you like to cook for yourself... if you can't be bothered of course there is a cafe right next door. I for one would most certainly stay there again.”

Wonderful accommodations!

Kerry, November 16, 2007
kerry (at) klcsolutions (dot) com

“I stayed at the on Valckenierstraat in mid-November 2007 for 6 nights. I highly recommend it. Thea and Frank, the owners, were extremely helpful and nice. The apartment was squeaky clean! Its location is also great -- right on the 7 and 10 tram lines (for Leideseplein) and directly at a Metro subway stop (for Centraal Station). Plenty of dishes to cook with if you want to save a little on food. Microwave, stove, refrigerator, coffeemaker, etc. Albert Heijn grocery store is just a few minutes away by foot. Comfortable bed, and plenty of space for a studio apartment. Again, I highly recommend this accommodation!”

Highly recommended

John, October 28, 2007
ilovewigan (at) hotmail (dot) com

“We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment's well situated just outside the town centre (nice short walk into town and the more obvious touristy areas) and surprisingly spacious and well-furnished. Highly recommended as an affordable get-away well-placed to enjoy a break in the city and Frank & Thea are excellent hosts.”

Great Place

Alon, Maya & Lihi, October 12, 2007
 

“The appartment is great. We were there for 5 days with our 9 month old daughter. As previously said it is fully equipted (great kitchen) and we cooked food everyday. The supermarket is near (4 minutes walk). Frank (the owner) is very friendly and warm, he lives just above the appartment and ready to help in every request.

Public transportation (Metro and Tram) are very close, but we preffered walking. City center is within 15 minutes walk along the Amstel canal.

We will defenitely recommand the place for our friends and will return on our next trip to Amsterdam.”

Good appartment, good location

John Sheppard, October 11, 2007
johngsheppard (at) tiscali (dot) co (dot) uk

“The appartment was clean, tidy and roomy. Very well situated for metro ( 50 mtrs ) and tram ( 150 mtrs ), which in turn is about five minutes from centre. Handy bar ( 20 mtrs ) for breakfast and more, but no noise at night. Good supermarket - 500 mtrs. Any problems, the owner lives upstairs and speaks very good English. We will be going to Amsterdam again, and we will stay at this appartment. From Gill & John, York, England.”

The Location is Excellent

Bob Dee, October 8, 2007
bob (dot) dee (at) btinternet (dot) com

“This is a stylish apartment on the ground floor. As other reviewers have noted, the kitchen is comprehensively equipped. The bathroom is nice, except that the basin is indeed very tiny and there is no radiator or warmed towel rail. As a previous reviewer commented, we missed the presence of a chair or little sofa that would enable two to relax together in comfort. The location is excellent - just a few metres from a short, fast metro link into the centre of town, and with a good supermarket, cafes etc only a short walk away. We were warmly received for our late September 07 stay, and the little local map and notes that Thea left for us were a thoughtful and welcome detail.

Note Staf: thank you, we are sure that Thea and Frank do something with your remarks.”

Perfect Place to Stay

Richard and Theresa, October 8, 2007
armysenrec (dot) ilford (at) acio (dot) mod (dot) uk

“First class apartment in a fantastically central location, 10 steps to the Metro. Warm and cosy with everything (and more) you would expect. Perfect for young or old. The hosts Frank and Thea were extremely helpful and genuinely lovely people. Would reccommend to anyone, much better value than a hotel. Will certainly be staying again.”

Great Apartment in Amsterdam

Angie Gunden and Seth Kauffman, September 8, 2007
angiegunden (at) yahoo (dot) com

“We stayed in this apartment for 4 nights and it was great - we would definitely recommend it. The location was great - in a quiter neighborhood, yet close enough to walk anywhere in the city. We really enjoyed having a place to come back to in the evenings with a full kitchen and an Albert Hein grocery store right around the corner. Overall it worked out really well and we would keep it in mind for future visits.”

Thank you

Carol Bertran, August 28, 2007

“A very cool apartment and we would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Great situation, nice and clean. Frank and her brother were very pleasant. Thank You.”

“Un apartamento "fashion" y muy recomendable. Situación muy buena, y limpio. Frank y su hermano fueron muy agradables. Gracias.”

Welcomed advise on activities

“We needed a peaceful base after several weeks of European travel and found it here. Very well located beside the metro, tram and canals. Plenty of interest within walking distance. Our hosts were very pleasant and attentive with welcomed advise on activities.”

Funky style, nice and clean apartment

Mariann & Kjetil, Norway, June 5, 2007
 

“A very cool and cozy apartment. Funky style, nice and clean and close to shops cafes and restaurants.”

“Its only a couple of stops on the metro to central station or a few minutes on the tram or busses to jordaan and the museums. But not far to walk or bike at all :-) but we had a little rain and preferred the tram.”

“A perfect spot to have as a base when experiencing Amsterdam.

Thank you!!!”

Conveniant to the subway station

Sherri & Rick, May 29, 2007
sbone1 (at) uis (dot) edu

“My husband and I have just returned from staying 7 days in this apartment. Very nice and clean. Hosts were very welcoming and helpful. it is very convenient to the subway station, which we used quite frequently. Grocery store very close so we could buy our own food and save tons on meals out. Washing machine allowed us to pack less. One suggestion: living room area needs one more comfy chair so that 2 can sit and watch TV in the evening. Also bathroom sink is very tiny, so be prepared. Hosts brought lovely flowers and were a pleasure to visit with. We had a very nice stay. Thaks Frank and Thea.”

Great kitchen facilities

Jo Baty and Paul Randall, May 17, 2007
jo (dot) baty (at) lsc (dot) gov (dot) uk

“The apartment is gorgeous - very convenient and very chic for anyone who loves interiors! There's easily enough space to chill out and the kitchen facilities are great. The light in the apartment is gorgeous - a lovely place to read, have a glass of wine or just unwind after a day exploring Amsterdam. Lots of lovely places nearby to eat and Amsterdam is a gorgeous romantic place to be. We will definitely be back!”

The entire stay was fun

Tenen, April 17, 2007

“The apartment is very cute. It is located on Ground floor which is very important if you come with a baby. We stayed there for 4 days. The owner is a great guy and was very helpful. The entire stay was fun.”

Fantástico apartamento

sgomez (at) psiquiatria (dot) com

“Fantástico apartamento en fantástica ciudad. Los propietarios nos facilitaron en todo momento la estancia, nos obsequiaron con un detalle en la bienvenida y nos dieron oportunas indicaciones. El apartamento está muy bien situado, a poca distancia del centro, dando un paseo, y a un paso del metro. Dispone de todo lo necesario para pasar unos dias agradables. Gracias y saludos!”

Spacious, clean, light and accommodating apartment

Si and Michelle, February 19, 2007

“A lovely apartment in a quiet location. A 15 minute walk (or 5 min bike ride) from the town centre but when it's flat who cares...! The apartment was spacious, clean, light and accommodating. The bathroom was of a high quality and the shower had a bucket head. All in all a good choice. Next time though we'd prefer to be west of the centre in the jordaan area as we spent most of our time here but it depends what you are looking for. Where we were was good for the parks and museums so if you're in Amsterdam for these then it's an excellent location.”

“Amsterdam - an amazing city to get lost in and can't wait till we go back.”

Great Amsterdam Apartment

Nicola, December 7, 2006

“A great little apartment, right next to the metro and only 2 minutes from the tram. Its in a great district with lots of cafes and bars a short walk away and a supermarket round the corner. Its also right near the amstel so a pretty place to be. The apartment is furnished very nicely and they've thought of everything you need in the kitchen and to enjoy your stay. The owner is really friendly and pleased to help out with anything you need. There is also a guest book with some great reviews and suggestions for things to do while you are there. This made a really nice base for our stay and I would definately stay here again if I was to go back to Amsterdam.”

Nice local location

Raymond Chan, November 17, 2006
rcchan (at) tpg (dot) com (dot) au

“We are a young professional couple and we stayed in this apartment for 4 nights and thoroughly recommend this apartment. The facilities, especially the kitchen and bathroom were excellent and lots of personal touches and treats for the guests such as lots of good quality towels, bath salts and a bottle of wine on arrival. The fact that it had a washing machine and dishwasher made it a home away from home. It is in a nice local location but very close to the main city centre. The hosts are very hospitable and provided handy hints and tips to see the city from a local perspective.”

Really enjoyable

Mary Pendrill, November 1, 2006
(marypendrill (at) yahoo (dot) co (dot) uk)

“Our stay in Frank and Thea's apartment was really enjoyable and we would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Frank couldn't have been more welcoming and showed us everything we needed to see in the apartment when we first arrived. The kitchen was positively 'state of the art' and the shower one of the biggest I've ever used - easy to use and plenty of hot water all the time. There wasn't anything I can think of that they could have improved on.”

“Amsterdam itself is positively wonderful, so full of things to do and see and one tremendous advantage of Frank and Thea's apartment is that it is only a few steps from the Metro.”

“I wouldn't hestitate to go to Frank and Thea's again - it's central, comfortable and welcoming.”

“Many thanks
David and Mary Pendrill

What a lovely pad!

Tom Cullen, October 25, 2006

“Our trip to Amsterdam was very enjoyable and it was vital that accommodation was satisfactory as my girlfriend was a bit nervous about the city. I decided to find accommodation outside the centre so that we could experience the hustle and bustle and the quiet side of amsterdam.”

“I was slightly aprehensive about the studio apartment but pleasantly surprised. The couple that own it are very nice. We were given a very nice welcome and shown around. The studio is absolutely perfect if you want quality for a good price. The kitchen is great and looks very nice, they have taken alot of care with this apartment and make your stay as comfortable as possible. The metro is perfectly situated on the opposite side of the road and is 2 stops from Centraal Station.”

“Thank You very much for making our stay very memorable, it was so nice to come home to this place.”

Stylish and modern apartment

Harriet Vaight, October 17, 2006
harri_vaight (at) mac (dot) com

“Very stylish and modern apartment, with home touches to make it very comfortable- including fresh flowers, a hairdryer and a helpful stack of Amsterdam guides. The apartment was in a brilliant location, right next to the Metro and very handy for the trams. Lots of busy cafes, restaurants and a supermarket nearby. And Frank and Thea were fantastic hosts, very friendly. Highly recommended!!”

Shops and restaurants within a few minutes walk

Garry Davey, October 16, 2006
garry0001 (at) hotmail (dot) com

“Very stylish, cosy and atmospheric apartment well situated adjacent to a metro station so only a few minutes ride into Amsterdam Centre. The Amstel River is just around the corner and shops restaurants are all within a few minutes walk. We really enjoyed our stay. Hire bikes and suddenly the whole city opens up to you and you feel less like a tourist and more like a local. Great fun!”

Close to the metro

Ken and Doris Clarke, October 3, 2006
dandkclarke (at) xtra (dot) co (dot) nz

“Frank and Thea were charming hosts. The apartment has two great pluses, it is very close to the Metro and there are no stairs - access is level. The apartment is spacious and well equipped with cooker, washing machine/dryer and dishwasher. The layout is unusual with insufficient room around the bed. The bath/shower we found difficult to use (becauseof our age?) as it is pretty high and the washhand basin minute. It would have been nice to have been able to open a window. It was all very clean and tidy and was cleaned during our stay.”

Condo is in a great location

Ed and Laure Tielman, September 24, 2006
Latiel (at) aol (dot) com

“Condo is in a great location near the metro line. Restaurants and shopping are nearby. The condo is large for a studio and had all conveniences. The host and hostess were very nice and made maps of local attractions. We found it to be a very positive experiece and would stay there again and recommend the condo to friends/family.”

Great apartment!

Jo Dufay, August 3, 2006
jo (dot) dufay (at) sympatico (dot) ca

“This is a high quality, stylish and comfortable apartment. It's spotlessly clean and the kitchen is fabulous. The apartment is also quite large, particularly by Amsterdam standards, and bright.”

“It was certainly easy to get to all parts of the city by public transport, and the tourist areas were within reasonable walking distance. But I enjoyed staying in a part of Amsterdam that's slightly outside the to
