The cosy guest room is on the first floor of our appartment in the upcoming neighbourhood called De Baarsjes with a lot of Amsterdamse School architecture.
The room has its own entrance, a private toilet and shower, two beds and a wash stand. You can prepare your own coffee and tea. Around the corner there is are good places for breakfast, drinks and dinner like Buon Giorno, Speijkervet, Louter, Fier and Bar Speck. Very big and very small shops are nearby for foodstuffs and all other things you need
There is parking possibility in front of the house, but for longer stay we advice you to go to the Park&Ride called Bos en Lommer at the Leeuwendalersweg 23 b (€ 8,00 a day) and tram 7 takes you back to my house
My house is located near the city centre: the Dam Square is 5 minutes by tram (line 13 and 14), 20 minutes walking or 5 minutes by bike.
If you choose the other direction take tram 7 and it brings you in 5’ to the Leidseplein (lots of shopping, main theatre, cinemas and of course Paradiso and the Melkweg for music). Line 12 brings you in 5’ to the main museums like Van Gogh Museum, Rijks Museum, Stedelijk Museum and one of the best concert halls of the world, the Concertgebouw for classical music.
I live here (together with my partner, two lovely daughters and two cats) since 1992 and really enjoy our house, our neighbours and our neigbourhood. The neigbourhood is upcoming with a multi-culti mix of people. Good trendy places for coffee, lunch, diner and dancing florish (see guidebook). We do not have to leave our hood for an evening out! But if we want to go out (art, clubbing, theatre, parks, cinema) in other parts of town, it is all very near!
We love to welcome you, inform you about our city and hear from you how you experience Amsterdam. We speak English, French and German.
P.S. We also have a bigger and more comfortable appartement on the second floor. If you like to stay longer than a weekender, or with more people this might be a nice place for you. For an impression have a (email hidden)/rooms/599803
From Schiphol Airport take the train to Amsterdam Central Station (15 min). Walk out through the main entrance (direction City Centre). On your right hand side there is a sign ' tram B', take tram no 13 (every 10 min). It takes about 10 minutes to take you to stop ' Adm de Ruyterweg' (on display when you are near, press button). Walk in the same direction the tram goes and take the first street on the left, Witte de Withstraat. We live in the third block on the opposite side of the road nr 117.
Trams 12 and 14 also stop at ‘Adm de Ruyterweg’.
Tram 7 takes our street and tram 17 stops at the far end of our street.
