Overview

About the property

Downtown Guestroom

Situated in the old historical centre, the Downtown Guestroom is set on the first floor of a charming old house, with private but small bathroom, a comfortable double-bed and a sofa bed, in case two guests want to sleep separately or there are 3 guests.

This accommodation is very popular and a great choice for those looking for a budget and homely stay. Everything is very clean and tidy.

There is Wi-Fi for your laptop and also tea & coffee making facilities. No kitchen and no breakfast served, but there are many restaurants and cafés nearby. Great reviews from previous guests.

As the name of this accommodation indicates, it is really located in the heart of the old city centre, with its history and beautiful architecture. All famous spots of downtown are maximum 10 minutes walk, including Central Station and Dam Square (where the famous Madame Tussaud wax museum is located).

Please be aware that this property is also located very close to a small prostitute’s quarter (not the Red Light District and yet touristic), although it is very safe and clean.

You will be also just a couple of minutes walk from the most beautiful and renowned canals, the Jordaan, Anne Frank House, The 9 Little Streets, the Red Light District, Nieuwmarkt (where Chinatown is located) and many more to discover.

Notes:

- Not recommended for guests with walking disabilities, as this room is located on the first floor (steep stairs, no lift).

- From the 1st June 2018 this accommodation is non-smoking!

If you arrive before that date you’re allowed to smoke, but never in bed and with open windows please. Weed is not allowed anyway: please smoke outside and not in front of the building.

If you have booked with arrival after the 1st June, then it is strictly forbidden to smoke.

Perfect location, clean and ideal for a weekend trip.

  • 4 of 5

Situated just 10mins from Central Station, the room was clean and tidy and had everything needed for a weekend trip to Amsterdam. Very reasonably priced and all worked out well.

Well placed to visit Amsterdam Centre

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Jacquelien, was very helpful. She lives above the room and was easily accessible. The room was clean and tidy, and both beds (double and sofa bed) were very comfortable. There are few facilities there - just a microwave and a fridge, but that didn't worry us as we enjoyed eating out and experiencing Amsterdam and its food. The room is very well placed for visiting the city; just a short walk to Dam square and then you can choose which road you want to explore off this central point. The room is on the very edge of the 'red light' district. One lady was selling her wares from a window across the street, and another just around the corner, but we (mother and daughter) felt totally safe and happy there. I would recommend this room to anyone wishing to stay in the centre of the city without paying a fortune in rent. We really felt a part of the community for the few days that we stayed.

Perfect Location and Host

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed in the Downtown Guestroom for a long weekend in Amsterdam, the host was welcoming and had lots of tips and information for things to do and see while exploring the city. The appartment was clean, tidy and cosy and had everything you could need for a weekend in the city. The location was perfect, we purchased a 3 day travel pass but once we reached the appartment realised we wouldn't have needed to, all the tourist attractions were within walking distance, and the guestroom made the perfect base for the weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and no doubt we will be back again.

Soggiornare nel cuore di Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

Inizio con il ringraziare Jacquelien e Anneriek, due persone fantastiche e cordiali.

La casa é molto caratteristica, nel cuore di Amsterdam a due passi dal centro e dalla stazione.

Per 2-3 persone va benissimo, ha tutto quello che serviva per passare il week-end.

Noi la consigliamo a tutti, perché ripeto é veramente comodo avere casa a pochi passi da TUTTO, sopratutto dopo tante camminate sapere che hai casa vicino é molto confortante.

Siamo stati veramente bene.

Grazie
