The entire apartment is up for rental here, which means you can comfortably house a traveling party of up to five in this stylish accommodation in the Leidesplein area of the city. It’s listed on the site as being available for events, as well as being child-friendly, so the accommodation is also highly versatile. Leidesplein itself is a thriving nightlife hub, so if you’re looking to enjoy Amsterdam to the full, this is a fine place to start.
This room is extremely well equipped, with facilities for making tea and coffee, as well as a bed with a very comfortable mattress and several luxury touches. The host is keen to get to know her guests and warmly invites you to hang out with her in the living room while staying there; she does say, though, that she is “too lazy” to make your breakfast, but has excellent recommendations for nearby cafes that serve wonderful breakfasts.
This apartment is located in a green, lush area of Amsterdam and is perfectly located for visiting the galleries and museums of the city. The hosts are friendly and welcoming and always on hand with advice or to talk over your day’s sight-seeing with you. Additional good news is that the rental is located near Sloterplaats park, which is an excellent place for a quiet walk or a jog.
This apartment is certainly well located for public transport links - train, bus and tram are all on offer within two minutes’ walk of the front door. A brisk 15-minute walk will take you into the city centre, while the apartment itself is served by large windows which fill the place with light during the day. A double bed, super fast broadband and wardrobe are all provided for you.

City centre apartment
The hostess of this apartment has certainly put a lot of effort into making it chic and stylish; she lives here along with her boyfriend and two cats, and has picked an excellent location. The Bos and Lommer district of Amsterdam is one of the city’s most upwardly mobile areas, and there are excellent options for any shopping you may wish to do right on the doorstep.
