First rate accommodation, weed friendly and at a reasonable rate.
I'll definitely be staying here again

Hello Amsterdam Stay,

This is the second time my wife and i have used you to book and the 2nd time we have nothing but praise. The apartment was exactly as described and the host was lovely, we have emailed our thanks to her. 

We will only use when booking future trips, and probably this apartment.

Many Thanks and all the best

We stayed four days at the Roefloft Studio. The place is amazing with a lot os style and feels It is better than a hotel and perfect for couples. 


The owner was very nice and helped us with anything we needed. This is the best place to stay in Amsterdam.

Hello I would like to leave a Review for the Roeloft Studio , Amsterdam.

My partner and I spent 5 wonderful days there at the beginning of October.

The studio is immaculate and stunning and has all the amenities and much more than we would of expected.

Ed the host was very welcoming too, he even met us at the tram stop which was situated opposite the studio , which was great for getting around Amsterdam .

Ed had also kindly filled the fridge with the essentials and wine too which was lovely after arriving from the airport. 

The studio has a lovely terrace where you can sit and relax, after a day out . A nice quiet location yet situated near the busy bustling centre. We would definitely be returning in the near future . 

There is steep stairway to the studio but this is the norm in Amsterdam and we're not a problem for us as we went out all day and returned in the evening .

Thanks Ed , the studio is great and 

See you soon

Check in and check out was simple. The apartment was clean and modern, great for two people. However we couldn't work out how to function the heating and it was not explained to us when we got there, making it quite a cold trip. Good to have a washing machine if there was washing powder/liquid. Also there was a hair dryer but for a UK plug socket, so we had to go buy an eu adapter to use it. The hoover didn't work when we got there. Overpriced to have all these downsides, wouldn't book this place again.

Distance from shops is very small, being in the centre of Amsterdam makes it easy to walk everywhere. Also.. no normal tea bags?!

Deborah stayed at Apartment in Amsterdam Downtown (ID 975)

5-8 October, 2016






We enjoyed our stay very much and would book this apartment again. 

Plus points:

Very clean

Staircase not as bad as others we've stayed in!

Superb location 

Excellent customer service 


Things that could be improved:

Shower on first floor doesn't drain properly and the door doesn't close properly

Toilet would be good on third floor 


Thanks for everything! We were very happy with the service and apartment. 


Jackie stayed at The Empire (ID 1974)

 28 September - 1 October, 2016

The apartment was ok, but not great. The smell from the drains in the bathroom is bad. The light to the bathroom went off and on. Also they left no bedding to fit the sofa-bed.Generally because of this and the basic amenities I think it was over priced.


I can't be alone in thinking that there is a good market segment that is not being catered for in Amsterdam I.e people over 40 who want a comfortable smoking apartment with a nice double bed and sofa. They are going to look after a place and would be happy to pay for extras, e.g cable, shopping delivered.



Nigel stayed at Dutch Rose (ID 2355)

Dear amsterdam stay team,

Hi there, 


I can safely say that we all had a wonderful time staying in Casa bonita! Your team were very understanding with the late check in and check out and were very helpful and I honestly can't think of any improvements. I do have one question however, I'd just like to know when id be receive the damage deposit back? As to my knowledge we didn't break anything? Just let me know when you can, and thank you so much for allowing us to stay in Amsterdam, I would definitely refer anyone to choose you guys as it was such a pleasant holiday.


Kind regards

We had a very enjoyable few days in the Amsterdam.

John was extremely friendly on our arrival and gave us the run down on the surrounding area.


The apartment was exactly what we were looking for, it was like staying at home but in a different city.

The location was perfect, and we would have no hesitation in booking again, or recommending to friends or family.


Thanks again.


All the best,

stayed at Modern duplex apartment with roof terrace (ID 1028)

16-18 May, 2016

Our time in Amsterdam was very enjoyable. The apartment was comfortable and everything we wanted was available. The owner was extremely helpful in giving advice for site seeing, local facilities and arranging entry tickets.

Kind regards,


stayed at Overtoom (ID 365)

29th April - 4 May 2016

Just back yesterday and have to say upon arrival our host was so friendly and very accommodating to us.  The apartment was amazing.  We actually saved a fortune staying where we did.  The best of both worlds.  We could still go to the city then relax in the evenings in the apartment after a long day.  Vondelpark is also a 2 minute walk from the apartment and that was amazing also.  I would definitely use this service again and i would definitely return to Happy Charm again.  Amazing place with lots of character.

Gemma Jones

stayed at Happy Charm (ID 433)

21-24 April, 2016

Another really good experience booking through you; the apartment was exactly as described, communication with the owner was good, checkin/out was extremely efficient & easy as she lives in the same building, and she was very friendly & accommodating generally. 


We'd happily stay there again and your site is always my first stop when planning a trip to the city :)




Stayed at Amsterdam Cosy canal apartment (ID 703)

14-18 April, 2016

Had a great time in Amsterdam. Anyone going I would recommend Danis place. it is a lovely apartment and Dani is great, really helpful and laid back, when we arrived and had a couple of problems he was really laid back and fine about everything, and last night booked our taxi to the airport for this morning.

As well as above I would add that the apartment is very clean, comfortable, and the beds are better than most hotel beds.  Dani is really helpful, and you can ring him any time with queries/any help needed.  We would highly recommend this place and plan to return in August

Mike and Rachel 

Stayed at Dani’s Place (ID 1107)

9-12 April, 2016

Thanks for the email, the apartment was awesome. I can't think of anything that was missing. Maybe faster broadband if I were being very picky. Oh and instructions for the coffee machine. But other than that everything was great.


I look forward to booking again with you in the future. 


Many thanks,


stayed at Longstreet Apartment (ID 1405)

5-8 April, 2016


Just got back - had a wonderful time again.

Always book with you guys in the same place, never been dissapointed.

Mario our host who stepped in for Mo was fantastic, very helpful and made us very welcome.

If i am able to leave some feedback on tripadvisor or something please let me know.

Many thanks & hope to book again in the future.


stayed at Hollywood apartment with Playstation 3 & games (ID 17)

7-10 April, 2016

Apartment was great - only reservation in staying again would be the extremely poor internet.




stayed at City Park Apartment III (ID 1548)

 16-25 March, 2016

Overall a good stay. A few small things


- the 40 euro early checkout fee came as a surprise and we had to call to get someone to come as they had not arrived at the time we agreed.

- no kettle in the apartment 

- only one key not four as stated




stayed at Garden House (ID 1016)

 17-20 March, 2016

We had a great stay at the leidse attic. I couldn't have been any better.... Apart from the rain and snow!  but that's nothing to do with the accommodation which was warm, clean and comfortable. We really liked its proximity to the centre of the city. We would highly recommend "Stay Amsterdam" and the leidse attic to friends and will definitely be staying again.

Thank you

The stay at the Dutch Rose was fantastic. The apartment was spotless, in a brilliant location and the owners (Michael and his son I believe) were kind and helpful, and made the whole process of hiring out an apartment easy.


Although it was a little pricier than staying in a hostel, it was definitely worth the extra money, exceeded expectations and made our visit to Amsterdam even better.


We will definitely be using Amsterdam stay again!


Many thanks,


Ryan Marsh stayed at Dutch Rose (ID 2355)

Thank you, we had a lovely stay at the apartment. it was a great location and would recommend this apartment to family and friends

Melissa , Who do I tell how happy i am?

How do I explain to your company what they have done for us?


We have been coming here for 15 years and always stayed in hotels, the Renaissance, the Barbizon, Krasnapolsky  , the Movenpick

, nh, you get it nice places...


We come twice a year , this year were here twice now.


We had booked Thru Amsterdam city apartment .

 We were mislead by the photos in the pictures for the apt.

I was in awe, and appalled at the amount of money we were charged by them.

We cancelled our reservation and started booking thru you ..


I had booked one with a owner who hadn't updated his calendar and it came up booked, then two other over bookings with you guys .


In short we have been to three apartments and taken 4 taxis as we had to store luggage today .


Fedora has been the most God sent person from your company !!

I'm so impressed with your company going out of your way to finally let me relax and enjoy our 33 anniversary finally ..

As you know it was Christmas and now New Years, and no apartments left. I spent two days , as I had to wait on replies and haven't done much on my vacation .

So I was not feeling relaxed or very happy with either company at this point, until Fedora stepped in the help me find a nice place for us to finally relax.

 I have friends coming over in March and I told both couples too book Thru you and do it now.


I will continue to express my gratitude to your company by sending customers your way . 


I can only hope you have more like Fedora how well she takes care of your customers and keeps them happily returning .


I will be in contact and I'd like to Thank everyone again ...

The blue houseboat was wonderful and in an amazing location. I can't believe that we were lucky enough to get it.


I used it while attending a conference and visiting colleagues. It was both convenient for work (close to tram for UvA and VU and with its own great wifi that allowed me to work on the boat) and wonderful accommodation (lovely bed and sofa bed).


Even though I was only there for a few days I have wonderful memories of watching the sun go down from the veranda, drinking whisky, reading a novel, watching the boats go by and trailing my feet in the waters of Prinsengraacht. How relaxing!

Thanks for the stay it was really great. Everything was perfect accept it is really hot as there is no ventilation in the apartment especially when you allow smoking as well I think it would help to be able to open that other door.

Other than that no complaints, thanks again!

Amy stayed at The Residence (ID 2116)

Well what can i say about the apartment.

The property owner was waiting as arranged before hand by phone.very nice man,helpful and told us a few nice places to go which was useful.

The apartment was perfect,very tidy plenty of towels etc lovely balcony with sunshine all the front was a perfect view of the new market and you can loose hours people watching

Great location,everything within walking distance to  explore this beautiful city. Would recommend to friends.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two-week Amsterdam stay at the Green Queen's Apartment!


Two of us shared the very spacious two bedroom apartment.  The large windows and skylight make the apartment bright.  The kitchen is fully stocked with all the cutlery, dishes and cookware we needed to cook meals.  The beds are comfortable, and there are plenty of extra linens and towels.  We had the apartment cleaned once per week and the laundry done.  It was nice to be able to sit on the roof terrace for a smoke.  This definitely felt like a home away from home, and we loved the neighbourhood with its groceries, shops and restaurants and its very close proximity to Vondelpark!  Great public transportation is also right out the doorstep.


Best of all, Barak Cohen is a really nice guy!  He is flexible and responsive.  He met us punctually at the apartment for check-in, and he remained completely available for any of our needs (although we had few).  We appreciated his friendliness and professionalism most of all.


For the owner of the apartment I can only suggest a few more pieces of furniture on the roof terrace.  We used the two plastic chairs or sat directly on the deck for seating.  A set of four sturdy chairs and a table would be perfect!


Overall ours was a perfect Amsterdam stay, and we definitely want to keep in touch with Barak Cohen for future stays!!!!  We will be back!


Kind Regards,

Norbert stayed at Green Queen's apartment (ID 1805)

We had a great time in Amsterdam (it's hard not too!) the coke apartment was brilliant, just what we was looking for. Clean and comfy beds, plenty of hot water in the shower with plenty of clean towels. The kitchen area was clean and tidy, the fridge worked an absolute treat kept our cold drinks ice cold. Which was handy with it being 30c on Friday! And the place didn't smell like stale smoke like other cribs I've stayed in, not that the stale smell bothers you once you light one up. Mo the owner was fantastic with us and very helpful. Would most definitely stay here again in the future, and will be recommending the place to friends of mine. 


Michael stayed at Coke apartment (ID 7)


5-8 June, 2015






We had a fantastic time on the Klipper Lauwerszee.


Anna and the rest of the crew were welcoming and helpful throughout our stay (Anna had to give us directions on the first night when we got lost on our way to the ship).


The rooms we clean and warm and were a welcome break from a standard hotel stay. Breakfast was a bonus we weren’t expecting and it was nice being able to cook our own meals.


We’ve already started discussing a trip for next year to rent the full 20 places we had so much fun.



Dali stayed at Klipper Lauwerszee (ID 1017)

1-5 May 2015






We had a great stay in Amsterdam, thank you. Our apartment was very central and so close to the Vondelpark Park. It was clean and beautifully decorated. The apartment is small for four people, ideally it would be for two but the sofa bed is king sized which is better than usual. 


Thanks again for everything we would definitely recommend AmsterdamStay to our friends and this apartment.


Kind regards

Sheryl, Simon, Harry and Oli stayed at Vondelpark Suite 11 (ID 1503)


7-10 April 2015





I can't speak highly enough of your company. Melissa, in particular, was fantastic.


As for the houseboat, rundown is the best description. The sofa was so dirty and grungy we never wanted to sit on it. Some new living room furniture would go a long way to improving this property. 


While we would use AmsterdamStay again, we would not book the houseboat (#1952) again but would look for a better property.


Thanks for listening.

Just wanted to say thanks for a Excellent stay in Amsterdam, The apartment was absolutely perfect, very warm and comfortable and had all the amenities we could have needed, the owner was very nice and explained everything clearly.  We will definatley be staying at the Tulip apartment again.   


Thanks for a great Holiday.

Hi the flat was super  -perfect & great location. Check in easy & the greeter fixed us a taxi on check out which was really kind. The layout of the flat is great for a family and ideal for Dam Square and the Rikjsmuseum and Van Gogh. Good restaurants nearby and shopping.  We will use AmsterdamStay again for certain.

In review of our stay at Ingrid Houseboat ID: 2265 :


Our stay on the houseboat was an absolute pleasure. In addition to it's central location, it was far more spacious and well-equipped than I had expected. The rooms and shared areas were comfortable and strikingly stylish, and all the appliances and amenities were a pleasant surprise (You would assume being a boat, that things like the shower and toilet would be of a "campsite" standard, but there were no discernible sacrifices made when compared to a "bricks and mortar" building.)

The representatives who showed us round and organised our stay were an absolute pleasure to deal with. We were greeted warmly and given an informative tour, and someone was always on hand to provide advice if we couldn't figure out how to work something. 

Our expectations were totally exceeded during our stay, and we know exactly who to contact the next time we want to visit Amsterdam! Thank you!

Hi - Our apartment on Singel was fantastic, well equipped, attractive decor and centrally located - perfect to explore Amsterdam.  The hosts Suzan and John were very helpful and welcoming.  We would thoroughly recommence this apartment which is perfect for 4 guests. 



Philippa Jones stayed at Singel apartment (ID 1083)

14-21 December, 2014


We had a fantastic time in Amsterdam, and the apartment we stayed in was everything we had hoped for - modern, clean, warm, well equiped, everything worked, and we could smoke in the apartment - plus, the location was fantastic in terms of being in a central location with access to almost everything in the immediate vicinity. 

The arrangements with the owner (or their agents) were excellent and everything went smoothly. Good, clear  communications, and on-time for the appointments booked (checking in and checking out).  We thought the apartment was good value versus paying for a hotel room in such a central location.

Overall, the apartment was perfect for our needs, and we would definitely prefer to stay in the same apartment, or similar, rather than a hotel, for our next trip to Amsterdam in late Spring 2015.

Top marks to Amsterdamstay and the apartment owners......we're two very happy customers!

Kind regards

Paul stayed at Delightful Dam Square (ID 57)

We have a lovely time and enjoyed the accommodation a great deal, which was perfect for our needs and the type of holiday we wanted. The owners were very helpful, friendly and, I felt, approachable if we needed them (which we didn’t, as they explained everything well on arrival). 

The online service worked very well and the pre-visit contact with the owners about meeting and collecting the keys (probably the most important bit) was fine. I’m trying to think of anything that went wrong, but nothing did!

Hi ..just to say that the houseboat Zanzibar was just lovely...very comfortable, warm and spacious situated in a lovely part of Amsterdam close to all amenities and attractions. The greeters and managers of the property were very friendly, helpful and informative. I hope to return.

Hello, our stay was amazing! We had a brilliant time - the location was incredible, close to the main streets, safe and beautiful. 

Our greeter was extremely helpful and easy going. The communication between us and the company was about satisfactory! We would definitely recommend this boat house to any group looking for a great place to relax, smoke, eat and drink!! We will definitely be back :) 


Thank you.

Dear AmsterdamStay,


We are just back from our visit, which we enjoyed enormously.  We were happy with Oster House: the location is good, the apartment is spacious and functional, and the owner Agnes Oster is lovely.  I would especially like to mention that the bed is very comfortable.  Our arrangements through you went very smoothly, as did our check-in and -out.  We like to try different areas of the city, so I am not sure that we would stay at Oster House again, but we would certainly consider using AmsterdamStay for our next short-term rental.



Andrew Rose and Miriam Green stayed at The Oster Residence (ID 577)

8-15 November, 2014






I liked the place, it matched with the photos, so no cheat, that was a relief for me.

It was in the city center, like they say in the website, very close to 4 tram lines and many buses.

Small but cute, enough for 6 people.

The host was very nice, and responded to all my questions.

We just had few problem with the door of the shower and the hand of the toilet, they were not working correctly, I told the host he apologized and said he will fix it. 

We also saw a mouse once on the living-room,  I did not sleep well because of that lol

Despite that, I had a great time in Amsterdam and I really recommand this city!

I defenitely will recommand your website if one my friends are looking for a place to stay in Amsterdam, you were also so patient with me and my credit card problem, so thank you!

And if I come back, I will for sure booked in the website too :)

I went for my birthday and really LOVED IT 


Keep up the good work!


All the best,

Just a quick note to say we had a great stay in Amsterdam this weekend. The AmsterdamStay contact, Emily,  was extremely helpful and attentive. The service  was second to none.


The apartment was just what we wanted, and Melissa could not have been kinder to us from start to finish.


We look forward to using this service again soon, and will recommend you to our friends.

Dear Emily and team

Our 16-day stay at Canal View Apartment (Brouwersgracht 49) proved to be a most enjoyable and rich experience on our first trip to Amsterdam, staying on the first floor of this mid-17th century dwelling. 


Prior arrangements proceeded satisfactorily with owners Maarten and Lisa van der Heijden, and Maarten greeted us most warmly on our arrival following helpful directions emailed in advance. 


The apartment has a spacious, well-appointed living-dining-kitchen area overlooking the canal, with bedroom and bathroom tucked in comfortably behind. It is freshly renovated with quality fittings, ample cupboard space and double power sockets, adjustable cooling/heating, and very comfortable bed and pillows. Tastefully decorated with original art, lamps and other special pieces, it clearly reflects the owners' aesthetics and Maarten's profession as a practising artist. Wi-fi worked well, TV and DVD player were available, and iron and ironing board complemented the washing machine. 


Maarten (who lives below) ascertained our particular interests (museums, art galleries, ballet, classical music) and then followed up with useful suggestions on how to access transport and last minute half price tickets at the Tourist Centre in front of Centraal Station. We walked in the first few days to orientate ourselves, taking in the various shopping districts, canals, private art galleries and then bought a 3-day "I Amsterdam" pass to access free transport, museums (free or discounted), canal trip and to secure discounted tickets to the ballet and orchestra recitals. We later purchased additional transport passes to move expeditiously across the city and took an informative afternoon/evening bus tour to Delft and The Hague. 


The apartment is on one of the prettiest canals (tour boats pass frequently), just 10-minute walk to Centraal Station, with Anne Frank house nearby and a wide selection of restaurants and interesting shops on Haarlemerstraat just one block away, as well as in nearby city locations. 


Maarten and Lisa have a comprehensive guide to local attractions, and stock pamphlets and a library of helpful books for guests to orientate themselves to Amsterdam. Although it could accommodate four guests, access from the pull-out sofa bed in the living room to the bathroom is via the main bedroom. 


We cannot speak highly enough of our memorable and comfortable stay, enhanced by the aesthetically pleasing surroundings, and the thoughtfulness and generosity of our hosts, who were keen to get feedback on how to improve their guests’ experience.

The apartment was well located near to museums, shops and restaurants.


We enjoyed the canal views and it was warm and comfortable inside.


The lift was especially welcome as we were travelling with my elderly mother.


We found the owner and the on site caretaker helpful and friendly.

Some suggestions : an additional lamp beside the sofa ; more plates and cutlery (and a new toaster …)

thanks a lot !!

We are finally home after a long trip.


Our first accommodation was Garden Apartment, Amsterdam.


We would definitely book there again.


The booking and payment process was clear and simple.

Cherida, the welcoming representative was excellent.

She took the time to do a proper introduction to the apartment and was

helpful with area questions.

Compared to representatives for the other five apartments we booked in

other cities Cherida was outstanding, definitely number one.

The apartment itself is well located, well equipped/supplied and well


The only negative would be that the garden furniture needs to be

replaced to allow full enjoyment.

I just have to say this was the best booking through AmsterdamStay ever! The

houseboat was beautiful and in a great location. The canal view was excellent and the parade of boats and water birds were very enjoyable. It was very cozy and warm and just a very pleasant stay. The greeters were nice and very helpful. 


I look forward to staying there again one day and always using AmsterdamStay for my booking needs.


Thanks again for your excellent service and best wishes,

We really enjoyed the Double Dutch apartment.  It's location was perfect for us. 

Edgar, our greeter, was friendly and efficient. A problem with the internet connection

was immediately taken care of and we are looking forward to staying at the Double Dutch

again. If there was one negative, it would be that the television only had a few channels

and none were in English, but again, we loved the apartment and location and the greeter. 

Thanks again,

The trip was great, thank you.

The property owners made everything simple and clear, and were very helpful with the bits of information provided before and during our stay.  The accommodation itself was very clean, comfortable and exactly what we expected, it is in a great location too.

Please pass on our thanks to Riek, Sayed, and Jimmy.

The apt we rented was in a fabulously perfect location in Amsterdam. The two people we dealt with were very pleasant. There were some noise issues from workers on scaffolding in the courtyard starting at 7:00 AM but, "Oh well".  We had a great time.

We all really enjoyed our stay, everything went smoothly and the greeter and the taxi driver were both very friendly. The house was clean and comfortable. Nobody had any complaints but if you are looking for feedback in ways that things could be improved, I have some suggestions:

We had little tubes of body lotion in our rooms but no soap or shower gel. Given the choice of one complimentary product, I would choose one to wash with.

There was a strange smell from the basement bedroom’s air vent.

The kitchen was pretty well equipped but we missed having a draining board for washing up. There were only three of us staying and it made more sense to wash small amounts in the sink rather than use the dishwasher.

It would be nice to have some non-perishable cooking basics in the kitchen such as salt, pepper, sugar and oil.

The instructions to the sauna are a bit misleading. It recommends to start experimenting at maximum temperature but this leads to the sauna being heated to 120 degrees! I’m sure the reason for this is that the heater has been designed for use in larger saunas. Rather than suggesting a heater setting, it may be more useful to suggest a target temperature range that most people find comfortable e.g. 70 – 90 degrees. (It’s actually illegal in U.S. and Canada to set a sauna above 90 degrees as they consider it to be dangerous).

The clock and the hydrometer in the sauna are not working.

I had trouble with the coffee machine in the living room. It only seemed able to dispense large cup sizes. It may not be broken and I could have missed something but it didn’t seem to work the same as the one in the kitchen. 

Kind regards,

We just wanted to let you know that our stay in the Snug Apartment was excellent. The room definitely lived up to our expectations and was really clean and comfortable. Our greeter was friendly and helpful without being overbearing. It was our best experience staying in an apartment in Amsterdam. We hope to return in the near future. We will recommend this apartment to family and friends.

We had a fantastic time in Amsterdam and really enjoyed little titans. 

Few issues 

Provide a real coffee maker. 

Finish installing ceiling lights 

Provide some real knives for cooking. 


We would probably not stay at little titans as the noise from the street was too much for us , but the location and property itself was fantastic .

Thanks again

Hello Melissa,


We really enjoyed our stay at Second Home. It was in a great location and the apartment had everything we needed. The owners even had a nice map of the area around the house, so we could find everything with ease. The DVD's were a nice touch, a good way to relax after a day of seeing the city.

Hi Melissa and AmsterdamStay team,

I'd like to post a testimonial for the Overtoom apartment (ID = 365).

We were having a wonderful and sunny time, for almost two weeks in July 2014.

The apartment owner was  just great, a very kind person and so helpful. 

During our stay we've made a one-day-trip together to the the big dyke, Afsluitdijk, and the beautiful places to and from the dyke.

A lovely country and such a great guide made our day and we're grateful for all these good memories !

The characteristic narrow and steep staircase adds adrenaline to your trip, but the apartment had everything we needed, is big and cosy, and in a perfect clean state.

The location is very well placed near the so nice VondelPark, and also just a few tram stops to the Museumplein or again some other few to the central area.

Our kindest thoughts to Albert, 

Nogmaals bedankt voor je hulp op onze vertrektijd.

We miss Amsterdam, and all we've visited, a lot !

Hello AmsterdamStay


Thank you for providing us with a wonderful stay!  I would be happy to comment about the particulars of 110 Elandsgracht.

Good: Beds, comforters, pillows-were extremely comfortable which is needed for good night sleeps.  Kitchen was very usable and everything worked fine.  Bathroom updates are beautiful.  Space was perfect for my family of 5.


Not so good: The trash can in the kitchen isn't big enough, and the lid is broken. Even though we kept the garbage in a separately closed bag & brought it out as instructed, there were a lot of flys.  The lights in the main floor bathroom don’t shut off. The lights in the upstairs bathroom are not bright enough at all. Also, even though the shower has 4 different heads, only one was able to work. The lamp light bulb in one bedroom needs replacing.  Also, it would have been nice to have stand up fans in the upstairs bedrooms, as it was hot on some of the nights.  None of this were major issues, but would have helped make it better.


Our greeter, Adriaan was so wonderful!!!!!  Loved him.

The apartment was clean and as advertised.  Overall we enjoyed our stay.

We did email to arrange for the greeter prior to arriving in Amsterdam, as well as when we arrived in Amsterdam and when we arrived at the apartment, but no one replied.  We finally did call and someone came within 15 minutes.

The greeter was very kind and helpful.
For the apartment itself, all was fine.  It would have been nice to have had a coffee maker.

Hi Sabrina / Amsterdamstay


I just wanted to say that our accommodation in Amsterdam was perfect. The apartment that we had for our stay was all that we needed and was in a great location and just worked out really well for us.


The property owner Caatje was absolutely fantastic and attended to any needs or requirements that we had and was overall wonderful. 


The Amsterdam Stay service was fantastic and extremely helpful and beneficial to our stay in Amsterdam and the next time we are there, we will definitely be using the service again.


Thank you!

We had a great stay in Amsterdam however I do have a few points on the property we stayed in-


1. The communal areas of the building were quite messy and the lock on the front door didn't look very secure


2. We were told that there was wifi but there was none


3. It was very difficult to find the office to collect our keys and we weren't given clear instructions so it took a while to find.


4. There was a balcony which we couldn't get on to as the door was locked and we weren't given a key


5. It was very warm in the apartment and the aircon didn't work and the windows didn't open as they were locked, again with no available key


6. The tv didn't work although this wasn't a problem as we only turned it on once


7. The drainage in the bathroom was useless and when we used the shower it flooded the bathroom so we had to put towels down 


8. The general upkeep of the apartment was quite poor, there were a number of dirty marks on the walls


9. One of the bedrooms didn't have any curtains so it couldn't be used as it was too bright to sleep


Kind regards,

Hi there AmsterdamStay


We booked the "queen of hearts" apartment for 2 nights because we are a family of 7 as it was cheaper then a hotel with the option of us making a meal should we want to and not always eat at restaurants (2 small kids)


I found the accommodation the following


1. It was dirty - loads of marks on the couches


2 it was old and there was loads of stuff that needed replacing - the strip at the one bedroom entrance kept coming off , the floors were full of scratches the hot water in both the showers didn't work and there wasn't any toilet paper in the toilets - the kitchen is falling apart and it's just not up to standard


3.  The general feel if the place wasn't clean and needed upkeep


I would have maybe had a different view if the weather outside was better but we had 2 days of rain and therefore were stuck in the apartment a lot more then what we normally would have been, and that's why I can tell you it's just not a nice place for a family I think it's way more suited to students who don't give a shit about that the place looks like, whereas me and my family were disappointed


Many thanks

Good Morning.


First of all I would like to thank you for this accommodation.


Location wise is quite good. Even though from the exact centre is about 40 mins, we still enjoyed the walk and for basic stuff we had restaurants, supermarkets, etc next to us.


Apartment was really nice and we really enjoyed that terrace which actually was the main reason of choosing this apartment.

Hello AmsterdamStay


I am reviewing our stay at the Singel II apartment this week. 


Pieter was a friendly and welcoming host, and was very accommodating with our schedules for check in and check out times. 


There was something wrong with the wifi on the first day, but he came over in the evening of the second day to fix it, which was great. 


We noticed upon arrival that the apartment was not clean -- we had to wipe down several dusty surfaces, and clean inside the drawers. There were also some stains on the  sheet for the sofa bed. The bathroom was also not very clean, and the baseboard beneath the shower was missing which caused the shower to leak and the bathroom to end up quite damp. It frequently smelled of mildew. The washing machine handle was broken, so the machine still worked but was difficult to open. The dishwasher did not work. Pieter seemed aware of the need for repairs but did not have them done. 


All in all, we appreciated the host's welcoming behavior and the location of the apartment was fantastic. In the future would like to see a cleaner place upon arrival, with all things working properly. 


Thank you,

Dear Sabrina,


I would indeed like to share my experience of staying in the below mentioned accommodation with yourself. Firstly, we had a great stay and the property was exactly how described on your website.The landlord who greeted us was very helpful and courteous upon our arrival. However, we have still not received back half of our damage deposit and find this very upsetting (check out date Thursday 03/07/2014). 


The landlord arrived earlier than our scheduled check out and as such we had not yet finished cleaning the property, he gave us half our damage deposit back (125 euros) as he explained that in order to properly check if there was any damage we would need to have cleaned and left the property. This seemed reasonable and we cleaned the property to as best a standard we could have.


Now he has still not refunded the outstanding 125 euros. The reasons he gave for this is that we left food in the fridge, didn't empty the dustbins, didn't clean the toilet and floors and there was a small sauce mark on bed sheet (which would easily wash off). We paid a 70 euros cleaning fee on arrival at the property, there was no damage to the property and no mess apart from us forgetting to empty the dustbin and 2 glasses upstairs that we had forgotten to wash. The fact that he is implying that it is the guests responsibility to clean the toilets and floors after staying is frankly ridiculous.There was no excess of mess or dirt in either other than to be expected from a standard week's usage.


This is robbery plain and simple. Could you please contact the landlord and ensure he refunds this deposit so I do not have to take the matter further.


Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.


Many Thanks & Kind Regards,

William Louden - Disappointed Guest




Dear Sabrina,


Please ignore my complaint in the previous email sent earlier today. I have just been informed the deposit has now been refunded today as of 2.00pm 07/07/2014.

Apart from that one issue we had a great stay and I would recommend the property to anyone visiting.


Many Thanks & Kind Regards,

Hi Melissa

We had a wonderful time and the apartment was great... Amazing location!

The location was also a bad thing too... The front bedroom faced the street and it was next to two nightclubs. Very noisy till very late... We just got used to it and fell asleep... Nothing could be done... So we accepted it.

We had a weird issue with the neighbour on Saturday afternoon. One of our friends went to grab lunch and pressed his doorbell at the entry by mistake. We then hear him screaming at us from upstairs... "I don't like the be disturbed!!" He kept saying it over and over... We were confused because it was an accident and also 1pm on  Saturday. We didn't have any other issues with him otherwise.

The greeter/office staff were nice as well. Today as we were checking out we realised we had forgot something at the apartment and they were going let us go back and get it and not charge us late check out. We ended up leaving it though since the apartment was on the other side of town.

Really enjoyed my stay in this property. 


Excellent accommodation, location was perfect with the market just outside and vondelpark, zoo etc all in easy walking distance. 


Couple of things though. 


Apartment below is referenced as 217 apartment 4 rather than 215 apartment 3 which caused confusion. The correct address was included in directions provided by greeter but not pointed out by greeter at the time and I was lucky that I tried the door next to 217.  


Aside from the above I would still happily recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in amsterdam.

My husband and I, along with our two adult sons, stayed at this accommodation May 25 -28, 2014.  Everyone was informative and friendly upon our arrival and we found the apartment as advertised.  Three of the bedrooms and all of the bathrooms are downstairs, which means they are partially below ground level.  The stairs are very steep and narrow. All the rooms had windows and there was plenty of light.  We did not find either of these attributes to be a negative but some people may be bothered by this. We did find a loose railing on one of the stairways which could have been hazardous.  We called the office and they sent someone out to fix it almost before we had unpacked!   There was plenty of space for all of us.  The kitchen was small but functional; however we only ate breakfast before heading out for the day's adventures and never actually cooked.


The location was terrific - Dam Square, the Anne Frank House, and the Tulip Museum are within easy walking distance.  The Rijksmuseum  (where we had a terrific lunch) and the National Maritime Museum  are musts - the Rijksmuseum is absolutely one of the best museums in the world.  If anyone reading this has the opportunity to visit, I hope the Art Is Therapy program is still running - it is the most impressive addition to any art museum we have ever visited, including the Louvre and the National Gallery in Washington, DC.


The  Albert Heijn is a  great place to pick up fresh fruit, baked goods, and other breakfast supplies plus beverages and snacks (we became so addicted to stroopwafels we brought some home.  If we could have figured out how to get Suikerwafels home we would have!).  There are tons of small, excellent restaurants with a variety of cuisines - we had some of the best pizza ever at La Perla and made repeat trips to Monte Pelmo IJs, just up the street, for the most scrumptious ice cream.


We would definitely stay in this apartment again if afforded the opportunity.


Pam Kline and family stayed at Jordaan Noordermarkt Apartment H (ID 1457)

25-28 May 2014






We had a good time in Amsterdam and we all thought that the apartment was great.


The one criticism we would make is that we were not allowed out onto the balcony and only being able to open the door a few centimetres. With no windows in the living room it did detract from what was advertised as being a smoke friendly apartment.


I hope that this feedback is worthwhile.

 I would like to provide some feedback on the Boatman Apartment.

Our stay was wonderful, the apartment is at a perfect location, really a 5-minute walk to Nieuwmarkt and just around the corner from the train station, bus, tram and metro. The steps in the house are steep, as one would expect from an Amsterdam-house, one gets used to it. One of the landings is cluttered with cleaning supplies, making it difficult to walk by, especially when loaded with luggage or shopping bags.

The apartment itself also made a good impression. The kitchen was well equipped, however it would be good if plates & glasses for 4 were available, mostly it was for 2. The main bath is OK (without a sink-mirror, the mirror is on another wall...), while the second bath is very tiny, with a miniature sink and no mirror at all. Beds are also OK. The hot water was OK, but the water pressure was in general too low.

What could be improved:

  • there is absolutely no storage space for clothes etc. A recommendation would be to add perhaps a chest of drawers underneath the TV-sideboard
  • the biggest qualm was that all windows were locked & bolted down, with no possibility to open any at all. We had some hot days, and it was on the border of beareable, I can't imagine what it will be on the really hot summer days... I can understand the danger of opening the road-side windows, the sills are indeed very low and could be dangerous with distracted guests, especially children. However, also the balcony window was locked, even the high bathroom window (the handle had been taken away...)!!

Thanks again for service.

We had a fantastic stay! Accommodations were even better than anticipated and the location is great.  This was a wonderful introduction to your beautiful city.

We always try to avoid hotels and stay in apartments as this gives us more flexibility and allows us to merge into the daily life of the city.  I specifically looked to a houseboat when searching for accommodations in Amsterdam and I’m very glad to have found this place.

My only regret is that we didn’t allow for more time!


Xavier stayed at Nieuwmarkt Houseboat

14-17 June 2014






Our stay was brilliant, thanks. The house location is ideal and the early check in was great given we'd arrived from Asia early morning. The house set up and configuration was perfect for what we were after and everything was clean. A couple of times I had to communicate with the owner and I always received a quick response which was appreciated.


On the negatives: The main office only had someone there at 10 (not 9) and the phone number provided didn't pick up a couple of times we called. We got this sorted and were in no hurry, so didn't matter to us, but so you know.


Suggestions for the house: I assume the windows are screwed shut to keep noise down and for security, but it can get pretty stuffy in there with a couple of people smoking. Maybe allow a couple of extra windows to open would be great but put a sign up to remind people of their noise level. We would have taken the rubbish out, but the sign said to leave everything inside? A broom to sweep the floor would be good and a small rubbish bin for the bathroom.


As instructed, we dropped all 3 sets of keys back into the letter box at your main office.


Thanks. We'd definitely use you again. If you could also pass this onto the owner would be good.

Everything was absolutely brilliant. Great apartment, very honest and real photos. The greeter Bobby was brilliant and was always at hand to help us with questions and recommendations for restaurants etc. He could not have been nicer.  The apartment owner Paolo was also lovely in the run up to our stay and very helpful with the delivery of some concert tickets prior to our arrival.  The area was really lovely, we liked that it was "local" and not at all touristy which is what we wanted to avoid.


I have copied Paolo on this email so that he can see how happy we were and what a great asset Bobby is to him.


I would recommend your services to anyone gladly.


All the best,

The Oster House was the perfect place for my wife and I to stay during our trip to Amsterdam. It was incredibly spacious and exactly as presented on the website. There is a full kitchen on the entry floor with modern appliances (although we didn't end up cooking anything at home), the middle floor is open with a large flat screen TV and two comfortable couches, the top floor has a full bathroom with washing machine and double bed. The apartment is located in a perfect spot within the heart of Jordaan, very quiet at night as it is surrounded by residential property and has innumerable restaurants and shops within a block radius. At night you can hear the Westerkerk clock striking at regular intervals which is quite an experience after reading the Diary of Anne Frank and visiting the museum only a few blocks away. 


The apartment owner (Agnes) was a delight to meet and oriented us to the entire apartment when we arrived. She talked with us at length about things to do while in Amsterdam and was always available by text and email if we ran into any trouble. We arrived into town a bit late and didn't have a chance to exchange enough currency to pay the full amount of what we owed, Agnes was very understanding and picked up the money the next day. 


There is no doubt I would stay here again if we are fortunate enough to visit Amsterdam again, it is truly the perfect place to stay for a couple and could easily accommodate a few more people if necessary. 


I dont know if there is a star rating or anything like that but I would give the apartment the highest rating (5 out of 5, 10 out of 10, etc...)

Penthouse at the Flowermarket  is a fantastic apartment in a great location ,everything was as described and our greeter was really friendly and helpful,the whole booking process was super easy and went through smoothly and we made use of the live help on the site a couple of times which is a great feature.

We plan on returning to Amsterdam in a bigger group next year (there were 7 in the group this time ) and will use again without a doubt . Thanks for providing such top service

Hi Melissa


We were reasonably pleased with the flat, prompt and very pleasant greeter, clean apartment, reasonable furnishings, nice shower, good location and transport links.

The extractors were not working on the wc and bathroom and no proper integrated oven, just a very small stand alone oven where you could not fit a pizza. 

Good building and lift but overall decor of the flat just ok for the price.  We enjoyed our stay.

Many thanks

Our experience was very good. The apartment was very clean, spacious and comfortable with everything we needed for our one week stay (including free internet access and cable tv). The owner and his family were very nice and helpful. We really liked our stay in Amsterdam. 

The booking through your company was easy and the instruction we received after booking were clear. Everything went as planned without any problems. 

Thank you,

I just wanted to let you know that me and my co-workers really enjoyed staying at the Flower Market Apartment this past weekend.

Davide is a great host and made us feel at home. I will definitely stay with Davide again on my next visit. The location was perfect…within walking distance to everything. Great shopping, restaurants, clubs, and anything else you could ask for.

Thanks again,

Dear Melissa, 

Our stay at the apartment was very comfortable and relaxing. Although our flight was delayed, we were met by our welcoming host Trini who showed us round. 


The apartment is beautiful, light and airy and conveniently located. It was very clean and comfortable and our host Trini made us feel very much at home. There were some lovely touches with cold beer in the fridge, plenty of tea, coffee supplies, a bottle of wine and other provisions supplied. 


The experience exceeded our expectations. Thank you to everyone involved for our Amsterdam stay and especially Trini! We very much appreciated her kindness. Please pass on our comments to her.

Kind regards

Hi, Melissa,


We enjoyed our stay in the Ideal Houseboat.  The accommodations were fine, we loved the location, and Derek, our greeter, was wonderful.  He was always pleasant, even when we locked ourselves out of the boat twice!  He refused a tip for all of his services.

Thank you.

The whole experience was fantastic, the apartment and location were great and the staff and service was exemplary. 


One thing that could be helpful would be a manual in the apartment with all key information such as taxi numbers and instructions for how to work some of the appliances (we were unable to work out how to use the oven) etc.


Overall though everything was to a high standard and very reasonably priced, I would definitely recommend to a friend.

Hi there,


The apartment we were staying (Niewmarkt Court Apartments A) was absolutely perfect. the owner was very very friendly and helpful.many thanks. the ONLY two negatives are that is no smoking apartment (for those who want to smoke) and has no view but i didn't care about that. For a big company is absolutely perfect.

We have just returned from a wonderful 6 day stay in Amsterdam, all went well with the travelling,  the Jordaan area where the apartment was situated could not have been better being only metres from the beautiful canals.

The apartment was listed as 'Luxury', a better description would be 'has rustic charm' the owner was delightful and very helpful.  The bed was very comfortable, the small bathroom had a good shower, in all there was everything that we needed.  I would recommend maintenance work be carried out on front door step along with a complete paint job on windows (flaking paint) and fresh paint on walls, it all looked a little run down. I would clear out DVDs (no DVD player) old leaflets  etc and clear a little more cupboard space to allow for guests clothing and personal items to be put away.  

Having said all of the above we were not disaopointed I just did a little tiding up, dusted the cobwebs out of the small hanging space etc and left the apartment looking tidier than when we arrived.

We will be coming back to Amsterdam, the folk are so welcoming and there is so much more to see

Kind regards

We had a really good stay in the Relaxing Citizen apartment last weekend. The studio is spacious and well equipped. The only thing we would have liked that did not seem to be available was wine glasses- it might be nice if there was a pair of these available! Rosalie the landlady was very friendly and welcoming, and easy to contact and quick to respond to queries during our stay. The studio is in a fantastic location- we loved the De Pijp area! I was going to put a positive review of the apartment on trip advisor but your company doesn't seem to be on TA. Many thanks, will recommend you to friends.

Hi guys,


I would like to thank everyone at amsterdamstay for making our trip very special.

We had no problems with anything and it all went a lot smoother than expected.

Our apartment was perfect except for the mice, but that's to be expected in the city.

Our greeters were fine, very reliable and helpful. Everyone I emailed at amsterdamstay

Replied promptly and we're very helpful. I would not hesitate to book through you guys

Again, thank you all so much.

Hello Melissa,


the apartment was very nice and clean, but there were really few kitchen utensils. It was really difficult to cook for 6 person with the little pots that we find. There were only 4 cups and 4 cups for an apartment that should be for 8 people.

And another thing is about the wifi connection that didn't work.

The greeters and the service in general were good, we appreciated that they let us do an early check out by dropping the keys in the post box and give us the caution deposit the day before we left.

Had a great stay.  Directions to get to apartment were good, host waiting outside for us.  Everything clearly explained about apartment with had everything we needed, even a welcome bottle of wine in the fridge.

Only thing which I did not register beforehand was the steepness of the stairs to arrive at second floor flat.

We were very happy with the apartment.  It was our second visit there and it was better than the first time.  I think that the first time (2.5 years ago) it was probably not managed by the same property management company.  The apartment was clean, the manager/greeter was there when we arrived, and the basics like toilet paper and soap were provided.  We did not need to ask the property manager for any other assistance while we were there.  I think the only improvement I would have liked to see would be better pots/pans for cooking - the ones provided were old and scratched up.  But that is not a complaint, just an observation.


We appreciate the service you provide and will book again with you when we return to Amsterdam (hopefully soon)!

We had a great stay at The Museum House. Our greeter was great and really helpful. He came back to sort out the safe which had run out of battery power on the evening we arrived. It was great to get some local information and knowledge. We travelled with our two kids and this was a perfect location for a family to stay.

Hi Melissa,


We were very happy with our stay in the Zeus apartment. It was clean and tidy and bigger that we thought it would be, location excellent. 


The guy at the Damrak office was friendly and keen to help, the greeter was efficient and on time. 


The price was reasonable so all in all very impressed. I have a tripadvisor account too so will copy this onto there aswell. 


I usually stay in amsterdam cribs as I come to amsterdam at least once a year with a couple of friend, but if we get 6 or 7 again we will return to you guys.

I am pleased to give a good report on our stay in the Intermezzo Apartment.

We found it clean and well-presented, comfortable and quiet. It was a nice surprise to find a few basics such as tea, coffee etc when we arrived and a local supermarket only a short distance away.

Adriaan our Greeter was very helpful and efficient, including the transfers from and to the airport.

The only minor niggles were : -

1.    The drive linkage to the microwave turntable was missing, presenting the risk of uneven cooking and possible hot-spots in the food.

2.    The wooden bed-base was significantly wider than the mattress and the exposed corners were rather sharp, with the risk of an unpleasant bruising of toes or a leg when moving around the bedroom in the dark.

In overall terms, we had a very enjoyable stay.

Kind regards,

Hi Emily and team,


Thanks for a lovely stay in your wonderful apartment. Some minor things I must mention though, the door bell does not work and on our arrival we were confused as to which apartment at No. 74 to enter also a manual for the operation of the washing machine and dryer would be helpful. All in all we had a pleasant stay and enjoyed the amenities and location of the accommodation and would definitely recommend it to our friends and also come again ourselves for a return visit.


Cheers from Oz,

Again many thanks and I'm sure we will be back soon!

My girlfriend and I stayed at Apartment in Amsterdam Downtown, ID 975.

The person who met us on check in and out was very reliable, polite and came exactly when we arranged. 

Apartment is really beautiful, it has everything you need for nice home-feeling while in town: fully equipped kitchen, sofa, flat screen tv, DVD player, nice bathroom and separate bedroom with really comfortable bed. Everything was very clean and nicely decorated. Location is really superb, write on the spot, in the heart of Red light district, could not imagine better. We stayed for 6 nights, and I only wish we could stay longer. Overall, highly recomendable!

Good evening,


We all absolutely loved the apartment, thought it was brilliantly situated as well, you should definitely mention the lovely welcoming bars and coffee shops in the area as this would definitely we a selling point. 


Only minor things I think could do with improvement.


- mention the steep narrow stairs on the advert, people need to be aware, very dangerous for children and elderly, you could leave yourselves vulnerable if not.

- wifi didn't work in upstairs bedrooms, kept dropping out. It appeared connected but pages did not load. 

- the plug in the upstairs bathroom needs unblocking : the water took a long time to drain subsequently leaving the bathroom soaking wet by the time the 5 people in the upstairs rooms had showered. 


We really liked the apartment, will definitely stay there again. The things I mentioned didn't worry us :)



Thanks a lot,

The owner and greeter were very nice.

The accommodation was very basic and a bit ‘rough around the edges’ – cigarette burn on the sofa covered with a throw for example but we were expecting that having seen the photos and were in Amsterdam for meetings at ADE so only needed somewhere to sleep, I imagine if you were staying there on a holiday you would be a bit disappointed.

Just a suggestion - it would have been helpful to have the option to pay in full in advance, our company paid and we sorted out a paypal payment when we arrived but it would have been more convenient to pay in full via card.

Good morning Melissa,

We have really enjoyed our stay in Amsterdam. The city is beautiful and with a relaxing ambience. The apartment is exactly as it appears in the photos. Very comfortable and with everything you need for a pleasant stay. The location is perfect, close to bars, restaurants and shops and close to the city attractions. Perhaps the only thing to improve would be left available to visitors a map and information about the city.

Thank you.

Hello, guys!

Service of is OK, compehensive info, transparent interface, good terms of booking. Nice quick feedback after request. So 5 stars.
Location of rented apartments is easy to access from everywhere, friendly neighbours.
As for our particular stay, I would like to underline extreme hospitality of the host. Mr. Liauw is very accurate, polite and careful man. He was at check-in exactly in agreed time, apartments were clean and cozy.  All the necessary and the lot of auxiliary things i.e. towels, brochures, maps, discounting cards, food etc. were provided. So 5+ stars and my best recommendations to other visitors.
Good luck,

Hi Melissa

We enjoyed our stay as usual.  The apartment is in a fantastic location.  However upon arrival there was no toilet paper provided and no  washing up brushes or sponges.  The latter not being a big issue,  but it was a bit of a pain having to go out to the supermarket when we had been awake for such a long period of time. Toilet tissue is something I would expect to be provided in a hotel or an apartment. We  have been coming to the apartment for last three years and this is  the first  time I have raised any issue,  but thought it best to let you know.

Amsterdam Stay has been helpful and friendly as always.  We will be booking for next year in the coming months

Thank you very much.

Hi folks,

Truly, the stay was great. The apartment was very comfortable, great hosts. Clean, spacious, everything we could ask for. Kitchen is equipped, but we did not do a lot of cooking in, only some quick breakfast preparation. Bed VERY comfortable!! Wifi available, tram stops just a few steps away, wonderful hosts, wonderful stay.

I would say the one thing that was not clear, I thought that there was a combined washer/dryer, but there is only a washer. Not a big deal.

Would I recommend? Yes!

We enjoyed our stay at the Jordaan Rozenstraat apartment very much. No problems with getting and returning the keys. Your company was easy to deal with and we liked the fact that the deposit was approx. 1 day’s rental. The companies’ that require 50% or more before arrival are too high of a deposit for people coming from North America, we are all afraid of internet scams.

First let us compliment the Amsterdam stay group for their ease in booking and answering questions. it certainly laid the ground work for our warm and lovely Amsterdam experience.

We rented the Rozen apt in the Jordan from Sept 14-18 2013. What a great experience !! The location is beautiful. close to cafes great food, open markets, canals. We arrived freezing from  Florence and so the windy, damp weather that greeted us was a bit of a shock. We were met by Wilhemna with warmth and calmness and we settled in to the most perfect and efficient loft apt.  Located in a peaceful neighborhood , it has everything. Bikes to rent, a cute small kitchen ,a great bathroom and shower,windows with sunlight and a very comfortable bed.
We were so fortunate to have the national dutch folk festival , the Westermart to have a clothing binge to stay warm,art, food and "local cafes " that greeted us like we were old friends .It is a quiet and very safe apt , close enough to walk to the center chaos but plenty nearby to see and feel like a local. The apt itself is so cozy and relaxing it was great to come home to. Wilhelmna was so gracious ,warm, assessable and helpful and very easy.
a very good experience that enhanced our experience

We very much enjoyed our stay.  The houseboat was well appointed, conveniently located to metro, grocery store, and restaurants.  Lisa met us and showed us around and gave us some tips for our stay.  Roses and champagne were waiting for us on arrival.  We encountered a problem with the internet on the last day and Lisa responded immediately and had the internet company onsite by 8:00 the next morning to fix the problem.


I would recommend Amsterdam Stay and the houseboat property.  My husband and I loved Amsterdam and thought it was the perfect way to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary.


Thanks so much.

Hi Melissa,

The flat was superb and great value for money, the area is lovely and we both enjoyed ourselves very much.

The greeter was great and very helpful answering all of our questions as well as very accomodating with our late check out.

I have stayed in Amsterdam many times before most of which have been booked through you and I must say they have all been amazing and any times I have had questions your staff have been very helpful.

Good Evening 

Everything was just perfect - thank you!  The location turned out to be perfectly located half way between the RAI and city center.

Rosalie - the hostess and owner - could not have been nicer.  She was most accommodating and helpful.  Thank you so much for such a great opportunity.  I would recommend this location very highly

Hi Melissa,


The apartment was great. Couldn't ask for more to be honest. Don't have a bad word to say about any of the staff involved.


Few points to mention but don't want to sound negative. There was a mouse roaming around in the apartment kitchen under the dishwasher after we cooked a meal on Friday.


I also got snagged but a nail not hammered in correctly on the stairs of the living room to 1st fl bedrooms. 


Beyond those small issues it was a great holiday.


Thanks again,

First and foremost, I would like to say thank you for everything. Below are my comments :


Pros :

1. Service was good, the whole process was easy even though I had problem with my credit card payment.

2. Greeter was fantastic (Maargtge?). She was friendly and pleasant. Although we were waiting at different places on check-in day, she got to where I was in 10 mins.

3. Location of apartment is excellent.

4. wifi was a pleasant surprise


Cons :

1. Apartment was a little filthy and has a smell (i could be too sensitive)

2. Window blind wasn't working. 

3. Main light was too dim and the light at the main entrance on the ground floor wasnt working.

4. Just a suggestion, not sure if it's a norm in Amsterdam : if there isn't a wardrobe in the apartment, maybe you can include in the description.

First of all, let me thank the entire staff of AmsterdamStay for being very helpful and very responsive to all my mails and queries


The accomodation at the Piglet Budget was comfortable, except for one of the bedrooms which had two beds in them, both the beds were very uncomfortable. Otherwise, our overall short stay was very convenient and pleasant


Thank you once again

Dear Melissa and team,

Just wanted to express my satisfaction from the accommodation and property owners. It has been a great stay with all the support needed. The apartment was very nice, clean and good located. The owners were very kind and supportive people.

Definitely if I go back again to Amsterdam in the future, I will ask for your service again!

Have a good day and all the best!

Hi Melissa
My family and I were very pleased with the apartment. It was lovely
and the location was perfect to be able to walk everywhere.  Ellen the owner was very kind and more than happy to help us in any way
she could and because we stayed at the apartment for 3 weeks we
got to know Amsterdam well.  That was a real bonus.  I would also
like to thank Amsterdam Stay as we found them very professional
and helpful.  When I needed information the response
time to my questions was within minutes. On a side note the
people who live there are very nice.  Occasionally I had to stop someone in the street and ask directions. Everyone was
very friendly and more than happy to take the time to help.
Thanks Amsterdam Stay for making our trip to Amsterdam a wonderful experience.
Met Vriendelijke groet

Stayed at Vondel (ID 633)

23 -31 August 2013



Hey Melissa and Team 

We had a great time staying in your apartment. We had already seen it and were very impressed just seeing it, but staying there was great, Amsterdam at your doorstep, but a nice, clean and peaceful hideaway to get away from the hussle and bussle.

We found the greeting most warm and and it was all very clean. The stairs were a bit steep, but we knew that already.

Only negative points I can think of, are the supports on the stairs, in places rickety and the last bit not there, especially going down quite scary. 

Overall, though, a great place, we wll defintely come back here.

Dear Melissa; 

We hope our mail finds you well.

Sorry for not answering you before; we just finished our tour in Europe. 

Concerning our stay in Amsterdam we have to say it was amazing. The apartment was very much beautiful and the owner was a nice decent person. 

Though we recommend having the blanket washed and ready to be used; as we had to wash them the night we arrived! 

We really enjoyed our stay in the apartment and make sure that our coming visits will be arranged through your website. 


Best regards.

Stayed at The Big House (ID 1002)







We have had some wonderful days in lovely Amsterdam, and I guess we'' all go back some time.

There were some thing we weren't that happy about, but we have allready told the company/owner.

We had to use more than an hour the first night to find the hot water termostat, and both called a callcenter and the guy who showed us the apartment. Luckily we got visited by a dutch friend of ours, and he helped us turn the hot water on.

Some of the toilets in the aprtments seemed "loose", and if they were in my own house I would have liked to check and maybe fix them.

The waterboiler, for teawater and so on, was too old, and let metalparts in the water when boiling. We rather used the stowe.

It was also a bit disturbing for us when the front door was painted, two days, when we stayed there. The smell of oilpaint was in the whole apartment, even in the bedrooms on 4. floor.

Your service in front of our stay, included the live-chat, has been great!

Over all, we are more than satisfied with our stay.

We all want to go back to Amsterdam! :)

Dear Melissa, 

I would just like to say how wonderful the apartment we stayed in was. It was clean and perfect for our group and such good value for the money we paid. The girl at the office was very helpful when we went to pick up our keys and gave us clear directions to the apartment and the booking experience was simple and easy. 

The only confusion we had was over leaving, we were told to leave the keys inside the apartment, but that meant we had to leave to door unlocked. 

Also, we didnt know where to leave the binbags so unfortunately we just had to leave them in the kitchen! 

It was also slightly unclear as to what state we were to leave the apartment, we had some left over food and drink that we didnt want to throw away, so we left it in the kitchen hoping someone would take it. 

it would have been helpful if instructions regarding the upkeep of the apartment were made clearer and what was/wasnt by the cleaning fee. 

I am also yet to receive any information regarding our deposit, whether or not there will be any deductions and when i will be getting money back through my pay pal account.  

All in all the experience with your company was brilliant, we were all thrilled with the apartment and will be using your site again

We really liked the property we stayed at In Amsterdam. Our hostess was friendly, kind, and thoughtful. The place was so convenient but just out of the hustle and bustle of the city which was great. A quiet night's sleep!

Your website was easy to use and the booking went smoothly.

Stayed for 3 nights in Lucky Charm . It was ideal for us. 3 short tram stops from Leidesplein and 1 street away from peaceful Vondelpark.

Jan Erik  stayed at Kade Residence (ID 804)

The main thing was that the lock on the front door was incredibly difficult to open and very temperamental. It could take a few minutes to unlock the door each time. Perhaps there was some specific technique we should've used, but no one told us about this.

Some other points:

  - the locks on the bathroom doors were dangerous! More than once someone got locked in and it proved very difficult to open the door to let them back out! We ended up

     never locking any doors which was a bit inconvenient.

  - there were no shower mats for coming out of the shower. This meant there were large puddles, especially in the bathroom (rather than the shower room).

  - the hand towels in the bathrooms were more like dish towels and not suitable for drying hands/face

  - the freezer didn't work and was leaking into the fridge

  - there was no 'welcome pack' or map showing nearby bars/restaurants/tram stops etc

On the positive side, the apartment was very well decorated and maintained. The heating worked well and the iPod dock was very handy.

Hope this makes sense. I look forward to hearing from you.

Excellent location, very good connectivity, very nice surroundings (back of Vondelpark), near of all commodities, so quiet zone but with leisure offer around (bars, pubs, cafés...)

Excellent house: clean, quiet, spacious and sunny, very good equipment. We didn´t miss anything less. We felt like home.

But, overall, great and excellent host! Exact and clear information, rapid response, carefulness, sympathy, kindness, discretion, very good attention...a lot of languages speaking! Thanks Alberto!

No doubt, we´ll be back in Amsterdam and, of course, we´ll stay at Albert´s house.

Ah! And even though we were a "demanding group" (we travel with a baby ;-)).

I'm just emailing to give feedback on our recent stay at Nieuwe Uilenburgerstraat 78.


We had a wonderful stay -  the apartment was excellent, clean, nicely furnished (the only thing missing was a cupboard for hanging up clothes). Melek and Wouter were excellent hosts, and had left plenty of information/vouchers to help our stay and gave some useful restaurant recommendations. There was even an Amsterdam Rough Guide which we found useful.


Overall, it couldn't have been better. We'll certainly be looking at your site again for the next time we visit Amsterdam.  


Kind regards

Please add the following as a recommendation for this great apartment:


 This is a fantastic apartment - very, very spacious, sunny, great roof deck and in a wonderful part of town.  I have lived in NL and like to stay in apartments when I visit on holiday and this place is very convenient to all parts of town. It is in a great neighborhood with lots of good restaurants and other places to go and you get the real local flavor.  The spot is quiet, but close to all the great things Amsterdam has to offer - museums, concerts, clubs, parks, the center, you name it!  Karen and her team of support friends made for a super stay and everything in the place was solid and worked well.  I would be glad to stay here again and give this the highest marks for quality in place, location, and hosts.  Enjoy!

Hi there

Here are a few comments regarding our recent stay at the Harmony apartment in the De Pijp area of Amsterdam.


The apartment was easy to find and Ken was really welcoming, and gave us some useful information regarding the local area. 

The apartment was very spacious, very comfortable, quiet and had everything you might need. 

There were many places to eat and drink in the area and plenty of coffee shops to hang out in.

The tram stop outside the door was great for exploring the city. We only ever seemed 10mins from anywhere.

I have been to Amsterdam 7 times over the past 10years, and I this would be top of my list of apartments to book next time I visit.

Regarding the accommodation, the apartment has some limitations to host large groups of guests. The main limitation is the lack of a bathroom sink in the toilet downstairs aswell as the lack of shower curtain in the same bathroom, and a short shower curtain in the upstairs bathroom, leaving both bathrooms completely wet after the showers, and very difficult to be used by other guests afterwards.
Other than that, the apartment was as described and a good choice.
The greeters were very competent, helpful and on time.
The owner and online amsterdamstay team, had a very effective communication with us by email, quickly answering any questions, and showing concern and flexibility in dealing with last minute changes.
This is a service that we would recommend.

I just wanted to drop you folks a review of the trip my wife and I took to Amsterdam from May 11th to 14th. We stayed on the Tante Piet B&B houseboat with our host Siet Verhoeven. We both agreed it was the best trip we've ever had to Amsterdam. The boat was clean, comfortable and very cool. Siet was a great host and cooked us a lovely breakfast of eggs, bacon and breads. Siet also recommended we went to the Rollende Keukens festival in Westerpark - a great time was had as we sampled foods from all over the world - it was so lovely to be somewhere less touristy and more authentic and local.  Without a doubt Siet will be our first choice on future visits to Amsterdam. Very highly recommended and very gezellig. It really was our 'home from home.' Can't wait to go back!

Hi , just to say we all had a nice time in Amsterdam , and as an alternative to booking three hotel rooms we chose your apartment , which we all really enjoyed (Once we got used to how steep the front stairs were !) .


The apartment had everything we needed , and our stay was comfortable .


The only thing that did happen was one glass broke , but it basically split in half when placed on the work top, so I think it was a fault in the glass not anything we did?  The break was clean right through the glass. I guess I am concerned that we are charged for the glass, when it wasn't anything we did? Perhaps you can advise ?


Over all though , we had a nice holiday, the weather was nice, and we would consider staying with you again.


Many Thanks

Good afternoon, 

We would just like to say a huge thank you to our landlord L for the wonderful stay in her apartment ID 703. It was so easy to check in and out and the apartment was very comfortable and warm and yes cozy. It was so close to Leidseplein and trams into the city, the museums and the Dam. It was a very spacious apartment and quiet but with a lovely view of a smaller canal. We were sad to say goodbye to our home away from home in the fabulous Amsterdam city and would highly recomend anyone to stay in this delightful apartment. We cant wait to come back :)

Kind regards and thanks

Dear Maria,


I am sorry I was so late to answer your message. First of all thank you for your great website it was very easy and explanatory whenever needed. Everything was very organized and safe for your customers.


As for Rosalie's apartment, I have to say my boyfriend and I owe a great part of our perfect experience in Amsterdam to her. The apartment looked exaxtly as it looks in the pictures, it was spotless clean, everything mentioned in the information given on the website was provided for, plus some coffee and tea, which was a very nice surprise; she even had her own brochure telling us basic information about the internet and the neighbourhood (pharmacy, supermarket, laundry, restaurants etc.)! Rosalie herself was the one to greet us she was very sweet and helpful, explained how everything worked in the apartment and gave us a few tips on where to eat. She was flexible with to our check out time  as she was not expecting anyone the next day. 


Overall we have no bad comments for anything in the process of booking the apartment nor for our stay there! We had a memorable time and we are very thankful to both your website and Rosalie!


Thank you again for everything,


Our very best,

Anastasia and Vasilis

The townhouse was great! Very charming, clean and close to everything. The only complaint is the internet was not functioning the ENTIRE week; Rik had installed new internet the day we arrived then he left for vacation....we e-mailed the owner but got no reply.....very inconvenient.  Only other problem was not being able to get into the apt til 2PM; with most USA flights arriving early AM, it would be nice to have somewhere to relax for a few hrs.    

Had no problem booking the apt and paying the down payment; all questions I had via e-mail were answered quickly.  

I will definitely be back and will use AmsterdamStay for booking - I loved going through the hundreds of places available....maybe a houseboat next time!

Hi Melissa

The service at Amsterdam stay and from our hosts was brilliant.  I called on Queens day without realising it until afterwards and yet there was no problem answering my questions even on this years momentous Queens day, from either AmsterdamStay or my host Auke.  Had I realised it was Queeens day I wouldn't have called though and wouldn't have expected to get an answer the same day when I realised later so apologies for that :) !!!!

Our hosts also met us early for check in making it easier for us as we had come by coach in the morning and were friendly and helpful, met us promptly when they said they would, the accommodation was clean and tidy and everything you could possibly need was provided such as a hairdryer, tea and coffee for a few cups to settle in, toilet rolls, and even books and dvds should we need them.  The neighbour downstairs was extremely friendly giving us advice about how to shut the door and recycling making us feel like welcome visitors and even though he didn't speak much english or we much dutch we shared a joke or two.

The accommodation itself whilst being practical and in a good location did need a bit of fixing here and there such as cracked windows and tiles that were nearly falling off in the bathroom which we were afraid would break if you touched them!  However, we were careful with the apartment and it did not make our stay any less enjoyable.  Unfortunately, theough our hosts have changed the rules regarding smoking for new people who wish to stay (but not for us as we booked before the rule change) so we would have to find somewhere else if we wanted to stay in Amsterdam again but we would very much reccommend it to anyone who doesn't wish to smoke or make too much noise int the evening as it is quite a quiet place to stay.  At night,  the noise carries from the other apartments quite easily although in the day there is a very noisy park outside and a kindergarten which means you can make a bit more noise yourself without upsetting anyone should you wish to play a cd or two at a good volume for listening to (though still not too loud obviously).

What else can I say - we had a great time - the weather was perfect also- thank you for all your help!

Dear Sabrina,

I felt I had to write to you regarding the apartment ('Beautiful Canal View Apartment right in the centre Amsterdam') I rented and also regarding your very helpful website!! 

Myself and 2 friends decided to rent an apartment for 2 nights to experience Queens Day in Amsterdam. As this is a very busy time in Amsterdam, I had found it hard to find an apartment and one that allowed a 2 night stay (most wanted a min. of 3). Then I came across and here I finally found a great apartment through the very user-friendly and helpful website. When I emailed Peter (the owner) to see if there was availability, I immediately got a reply saying it was. The whole process was so, so easy and simple and was booked by simply placing a €50 deposit. Peter was there waiting for us to hand over the key and show us around the apartment.

The apartment is ideally located, right on the banks of the Amstel and 2 doors down a very handy Bar!! Theres also a Supermarket just about 2 minutes walk around the corner.

Once inside, you can't help but notice the fabulous view through the full length original sash windows. The view I can only describe as something you'd see on a chocolate box!!!

The apartment is one long room but its been finished to a very high standard and there's so much space and light from those long windows and high ceilings. The double bed is large and comfortable and along with the single bed (which is so cosy & comfortable) means a guaranteed good nights sleep! There is also great storage space with 2 fitted wardrobes.


This is my first time renting an apartment in Amsterdam and I shall certainly be renting this wonderful 'Little Gem on the banks of the Amstel'. Peter the owner is very welcoming and friendly and is always available should you need anything. When I had to hand back the key I was actually a little sad, as I could imagine myself living there full time!!! If you want to live like a local and be within walking distance to everywhere...this is ideal!!!


I would like to congratulate you on an excellent website and express my thanks to both you and to Peter, the owner of the apartment, which made our experience a very memorable one!!

Greeter was very helpful, flat was clean and nicely decorated. Would love to stay there again. A little outside of the central area but easy to get to the city center with tram stop right around the corner goig straight there. Also plenty of little shops, takeaways and supermarket right around the corner. Would highly recommend it to any friends looking for a quieter bit of Amsterdam to stay in.

I would highly recommend for booking a room in Amsterdam. The customer service and staff were always very helpful and answered all of my questions. I also wanted to mention that the property I stayed at, 2 bedroom city apartment was awesome. Elen was very helpful and made sure I had everything I needed for my stay. The apartment was very clean and even had WiFi. I would highly recommend this property. Thanks again!

Had a great stay in Amsterdam at apartment id80. Apartment was as described and communication from the owner was very good as was the help from her assistant Rita who was always there to answer questions... And to get the tv working!

A great stay and my wife has just booked another trip with her sister and mum to stay in another apartment.

Hi, the apartment was very small, especially the bathroom, and I don't think more than two people could be accommodated realistically, however it was clean and in a good location.  Unfortunately the WiFi wasn't working which was a pain. Benjamin the owner was lovely, helpful and friendly. Overall the apartment was good value for money and I would consider staying here again for a couple of nights.

Dear Elen and the team,

I was very happy with the service your team provided. 

We did have a few issues with the apartment.  It was not ready when we arrived and many of the tech items listed in the advert were not working or no longer installed (i.e. surround sound had been taken out and the  projector TV was not working. Fedora did make an effort to fix as much as she could in the time we were there.  We appreciated that she made an effort.    

It’s a lovely apartment, just let down slightly by old bedding and kitchen equipment.

We would be happy to stay there again.

Best regards

Hello Wendy,

The apartment was as described, very clean and in an excellent location with a view on the famous ‘Skinny Bridge’. Any questions, concerns or problems were easily resolved as the caretakers were a phone call away. Although centrally located this apartment is located at a canal and there was no street noise.
The location allows you to walk to most of the main attractions and the subway station and trams are less than 3 minutes walking. There are two grocery stores nearby, bakeries and numerous restaurants. Everything we needed was very handy.
The apartment was absolutely beautiful and exactly as it shows online. I enjoyed the city and the apartment.
I would stay there again if I returned to Amsterdam and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Hi Melissa,

We loved the accommodation, location was great and the apartment was clean and well presented. Service at check-in was excellent, as we mentioned at check-in the lack of credit card facility was an inconvenience. A few minor details re apartment which would make things a little easier:

dishwashing brush and Clean dishcloths

basic information sheet with local info eg. Tram 17 takes you to Centraal Station Tram 7 takes you to Leidseplein (tickets can be bought on the tram.

Overall however we loved it and may come back in January

We enjoyed our stay and we gave some suggestion to the landlord to make it even nicer. The landlord has been kind and available.

I had an amazing time.  I loved the property. Location and appointments were better than expected.  Rita was there on time and very helpful.  I would definitely rent it again if the owners are also happy with my stay.  

There were two things that I had concern


1.) the shower head sprays almost directly onto the light switch in the bathroom.  I tied a towel around the top to prevent it

from happening. 

2.) I couldn't figure out how to get the dryer to function the night before I left.  Apologies for that.

Regardless.. I plan on using again and would recommend Skyline to my colleagues.  (as well as stay there again myself)

it had been 4 years since I had taken vacation and have dealt with a LOT of health issues with my family over the last two years.  I needed

this to be a relaxing week and it was.  THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Kindest Regards,

John Alan Rye

The apartment itselfs is super awesome. Its much bigger then it seems to be on the pictures and is really that nice how it looks like. In the living room is a pretty big nice table which is not on the pictures. We could done our work with 4 people at the same time at that table.
The technolgie in the apartment is nice as well. I am not that much into it, but we could use the TV as an Imac as well.
The view out of the windows is really nice as you can see on the picutres. You even can watch animals in the zoo while relaxing.

Houseboat heaven was perfect! Plenty of room and the owner of the boat was incredibly helpful, lending us umbrellas to provide extra shade during our very sunny weekend onboard. There was a duck nesting on the balcony, and the place could not be more peaceful. Very private and serene, with short access to everything. Local supermarket 3-4 blocks away, 3 stops by underground to get to downtown. I can't wait to rent this place again! Ayna

Stayed at Houseboat Heaven (ID 632) from 24 to 28 may 2012




This is a wonderful place to stay on a trip to Amsterdam. Firstly location - it is easy to find, great access to the city centre, close to a supermarket, video store and places to eat out. It is on a very regular tram route - I recommend getting a travel pass for the trams - we got a 5 day pass for €24. Secondly, the apartment itself, it has everything you could ever need on a holiday and was spotlessly clean. The kitchen is very well equiped. The bedroom has good wardrobe space and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom and toilet room were spotless. The apartment block and area was very quite. The apartment is on the 4th floor and we found that all the buildings in Amsterdam have very steep staircases. We are in our late 50's but soon got used to running up and down the stairs! I would highly recommend this apartment. I will recommend it to all my family and would stay there again myself.Trish and Des

Great time. The apartment is much bigger than the pictures, extremely clean, comfortable and nothing is missing!

With the view of one channel and the sun for my breakfast, it's just happiness. Also the host Mo is pleasant and helpful. Arnaud

During aprill 2011 I stayed in This Nieuwmarkt Nest in the busy red light district of Nieuwmarkt with my Partner. It was affordable for somewhere that had everything provided - literally, we didn't even need to buy milk or tea! There were things in the cupboards, great music to listen to, comfortable warm furnishings and double glazing meant it was quite quiet for where it was! Great comfortable bed, a laundry with a dryer and washing machine, it had everything we could have hoped for!.
Literally, you can see working women below you from the ceiling to floor windows of this upstairs apartment and it is tucked away in a laneway/thoroughfare that some people may find intimidating or un-friendly but this was not the case at all! It was so friendly and safe and I never had a problem leaving or returning to the apartment alone. The woman working downstairs were actually really sweet too! I befriended one lady, she was very nice=) My partner and I aren't party animal people and didn't venture out at night much but It was close to everything and it was easy to find, access and get back to. It was modern, clean and absolutely perfect for a stay in amsterdam. I would stay here again any time and prefer it to a hotel any day!! The closest thing to a home away from home! Sophie

Hi there,

I recently travelled with a group of friends all the way from Australia to Amserdam, especially for a festival (Defqon 1) and stayed in the Peter Martenstraat property. (ID 429)
I'd just like to take the opportunity to say that this was the most fantastic place I've ever stayed in whilst overseas, and our group were lost for words at the quality of the place. Situated right down the road from the beach in Ijburg (which we had no idea apparently how new it was until the taxi driver couldn't find it on his GPS system), it was surrounded by lush parks, greenery, shops and super friendly people. I think what our group loved most was, apart from being an amazing place, that it was such a tranquil beautiful area, yet only a 15 minute tram ride away from Centraal. The place itself was decorated beautifully and perfectly accommodated our large group, it was like luxury living for us but at such a fraction of what you would normally pay at a fancy hotel, plus with the added extras of having our own laundry facilities and full kitchen. It was our home away from home!
The whole booking process was so fast and easy, and even when I had a hiccup with the booking it was fixed straight away! We were also running late on the day to pick up the keys, and met with Eric and there were no dramas at all, everything went smoothly
Next time we visit, we'll definately be opting for the same place through AmsterdamStay!
5 stars guys! Thankyou so much! It made our whole trip fantastic!!!

To whom it may concern. 

We have just returned from 5 days in Amsterdam staying in apartment ID412 The Snug.
I would like to take this opportunity to say how much we both enjoyed this secret hide away in the middle of all the main attractions.
The location of this property was excellent. One bridge away from red light area, 3 bridges away from Dam Square.20min walk to Ann Frank house and the market. Just fantastic.

As for the booking process through was brilliant. The property owner facilitated our early morning arrival. 

We were met by Geeter who was very friendly and offered us lots of information on Amsterdam, however as we are seasonal visitors to Amsterdam we did not need much direction.
What I appreciated the most was the simplicity of the whole transaction. It was straight forward and direct which was brilliant.
We have use other website to make bookings, but none compare to the efficacy of using this website. We will be booking our visit to Amsterdam through it next year and from hear on in.
The property was like a secret hide away. It was so quite even though we were in a busy area.
The underfloor heating in the bathroom was a nice surprise. The bed was massive with the mattress being one of the best I have slept on. I highly recommend this apartment.

I would like to let you know what a wonderful apartment we stayed in.

As well as the obvious musts - Clean, good bathroom and toilet with comfortable beds, I think that you could tell that it was an artist place.

Well decorated with great art on the wall. A big plus was a great coffee machine one button and the beans are turned into a beautifully coffee a great way to start the day! So much more than staying in a hotel, Articaatje's Place was a great place that I want to recommend!

This was even amplified when my bank thought it would be a great help If they put a hold on my card because I was abroad, meaning when we arrived Carla was patient and waited a day for my card to be re-activated and then we paid on day two.

Not sure hotels can be so understandable. Carla made us very welcomed and showed us around and always happy to give tips on places to go.
With the trams around the corner the centre and museums where not far away and if you are like me and want to sit and have a drink/meal with locals this is a good place to start.
Many thanks

“I recently rented this apartment while in Amsterdam for a week and had the most enjoyable experience.

It is a great home with plenty of room, comfortable amenities and a balcony where you can read or enjoy breakfast.

The owners were there to greet me when I arrived. They showed me around the apartment, made sure I knew how everything worked and gave me directions for the nearest street market and grocery store.

They also left me a bike along with the necessary locks. What a treat that was! I got to travel through Amsterdam as a “temporary local”.

This apartment is located in a great neighbourhood with local cafes and restaurants and with easy access to the busy parts of the city.

I highly recommend it and would stay there again.”

After spending a very enjoyable weekend in Amsterdam, my wife and I are happy to recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a home-away-from-home experience. It is spacious, well furnished, comfortable and extremely well located right in the heart of Amsterdam, close to Dam Square. The large terrace, furnished with a good sized table and benches is ideal for whiling away an hour or two if the weather is good. In addition the owners provide access to Sky+ with the full range of British satellite channels and free fast-broadband access by means of pre-paid USB attachments. We could not recommend it too highly and we certainly would hope to return to this apartment on future visits to Amsterdam.

Review of propertyHeinekenplein Apartment
''Hi Wendy, Overall, we were pleased with the apartment. The views were great, the location was great and the owner was very friendly and flexible. It was very helpful to have him arrange for a baby cot in the apartment, which allowed us to leave ours at home (I would suggest he put this in the advertisement as it is appealing to families). Two areas of is that there was no microwave. The ad says "fully equipped kitchen" so we brought food for our 2 year old son, most of which needs to be warmed up in the microwave...that was very disappointing. Second is the stove was extremely hard to figure out how to turn out...eventually we did, but I would suggest he leave instructions on how to use. Hope you find this helpful. Thanks, Brian Caisman

We loved The Getaway. It was very cosy and EXTREMELY private and quiet which was just what we wanted. Thank you also for sorting out the kettle and light pull cord so promptly and it goes without saying that I myself am very grateful for your efforts regarding the TV and when we get round to planning our visit for next year we will more than likely get in touch to ask about one of your other, smaller, apartments. Thanks also for storing our luggage and arranging the taxi. The driver was very pleasant and helpful and that taxi itself was very comfortable. If you could include us on any mailing list that you have for customers I'd be very grateful. Best wishes Alan Johnson. APT ID - 18

I highly recommend your service to anyone is was perfect! Thanks again George and Elizabeth Ralkos (Canada) August 2010

Hi Alice,

Thank you for the reciept. I can write the money off with work, so every little helps!!!

The stay was really good. I think that's the 9th time I've been to Amsterdam and it was easily the best accomodation I've been in.

It made such a difference not to be in a hotel and is definetly the way forward. It was in a very good area, not too far from the centre, but far enough to be quiet.

The house was beautiful as was the surrounding area. Amsterdam is a lovely looking city and if I could I'd live there.

Whilst we got stuck for an extra night, the fact that you were able to get us in for an extra one was really helpful too. The snow may have been a pain, but it also made everything look so much more wonderful and it really was a delightful trip.

Right from the outset the service we recieved from you was absolutely first class, right through to accomodating us at the last minute with the weather difficulties.

I would not hesitate to recommend you to anybody wanting to stay in Amsterdam, in fact I think they'd be hard pressed to do better. You made the whole thing so easy, you dealt with any problems (finding a suitable property and available at fairly short notice, not to mention Moneybookers!!) promptly and made the whole thing stress free and hugely enjoyable.

I'm glad I found you and will certainly book with you again the next time I come to Amsterdam.

You can quote me with that too!!!

With kind regards and many thanks for everything you've done,

Hi Amsterdam Stay, just wanted to say that our holiday apartment located in Columbusplein was lovely. Our greeter Max was very polite, friendly and had even made some maps of the local area for us. We will recommend you to anyone who wants to listen. Thanks again to you and Max for making our holiday a truly memorable one!. Regards, Jason and Jenny Thomopoulos. May 6th 2010


''I just wanted to thank you all for arranging the apartment for us.

Everything worked out perfectly and we had a wonderful time while in Amsterdam! We will certainly refer any of our friends traveling in the area to you guys. Thanks again! Best, Dan Knight

''To everyone at AmsterdamStay and especially David (who put up with us being late) We would like to say thanks a million for an amaing stay in your wonderful city. It was our first trip there but it surely won't be our last. In fact we have looked at flights for June and we would like to return for a week stay from Tues June 16th to Tues 23rd 2009, with another eager couple in tow. If possible we would like to make a reservation for the same apartment, Old Masters Apartment on Weteringstraat, for those dates. It was a beautiful space to spend time in and come back to after hours of walking. I hope we left it exactly as we had found it and I apologise again that we didn't have time to empty the dishwasher! Anyway Happy Easter to you all and let me know when you can about availability for the apartment for the above dates. Goodbye for now and thanks again Elaine Condell and Billy Burroughs

''Hello all, My Husband and I would like to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mad apartment from 13-16/04/09. Mo was very helpful and the apartment was just a toy box of delights. We hope to stay with you again next year, this time with our friends.

Hello Amsterdam Stay

''Great comfortable place to stay - and the people who run the apartments are very helpful and down to earth.

     Stayed at Amsterdam Cosy love''

''Hello Amsterdam Stay. thank you, we had a very pleasant stay in the Jordaan studio and we would come back anytime... Best regards Phil & Claudia"

Dear Wendy, I just wanted to write and let you know that my stay in Amsterdam was just wonderful.

The apartment (the Secret Garden) was perfect and so centrally located. I use a walker and it was so convenient for me and I was able to access everything.

The Neiumarket area was a lot of fun and we had everything we needed close by.

Laura was very helpful and delightful. She got us a couple of things we needed (hairdryer and coffeemaker) right away and also gave us information on sights.

We visited many museums, went to the Keukenhof Gardens and had so much fun exploring.

Thank you very much for all of your help. It was truly a vacation I shall never forget. Sincerely, Renee Lackey This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it June 15th 2010

Hi ya Amsterdam Stay Thank you for all your help, we had a fab weekend and loved the "Red apartment". We hope to come back soon and will definitely recommend you!! With kindest regards, Tara McPherson

''Hi All at Amsterdam Stay ! Just a quick note to thank you very much for a brilliant few days in Amsters! Being in Amsterdam Rembrandt apartment made the whole experience so much more enjoyable......we will never go back to staying in hotels ever again! I'm back at work this morning and I've got the holiday blues already! Anyway thanks again! We will see you all soon! Alan and the gang from Wales! XXX

''Hi Wendy / Amsterdam Stay Yes it was fine and we enjoyed our stay. The place was a little more basic than we thought from the photos, but that’s not a problem. One of the lights in the front room was missing with just wires hanging down from the ceiling - that didn’t look very good. A couple of thoughts – if you put a few more things in the kitchen it would be better – some tea-towels to wipe plates and some washing-up liquid and brushes. If we had had the washing-up liquid we would have done the dishes before we left, so it might be better for everybody! But all in all we enjoyed our stay, thank-you! Regards Richard

Fallon, Richard (LIU-London)''

Greetings Amsterdam Stay Like the first time we had a great stay in Amsterdam. The reason is very simple, we find the best place to stay : " Amsterdam Rembrandt Apartment" For sure we will come back next year, but I do not know exactly when ! Thanks and regards to all the Amsterdam Stay staff. Christian

''Hi Amsterdam Stay I would like to thank Daniel once again as we were up early for a flight and did not get a chance to catch him before we left. Once again he was a fantastic host and as always a complete gentleman. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the apartment and cannot wait to organise our next one. Yours Faithfully Brian Stuart

Hi just wanted to let you know stayed at the Munt apartments 21-24 July 2008 we had a great time, beautiful place. The guy at the cosmos hostel was brilliant very helpful. We will definitely be back as soon as we get time off work thank you so much. Jan Knowles

Let me tell you about my stay at Secret Garden.

I emailed the owner with arrival info and she told me (& I still have the email) that we could check in at noon on the day of our arrival (Tuesday) and she would hold our luggage until check in time.

We arrived exhausted, left our luggage with her, and she told us it would now be 1pm before we could check in. We were unhappy with the change and came back at 12:45 and she insisted we wait outside the apartment until 1pm.

Then we paid her in cash. She said we owed her more than 919.90 Euros. We said the amount was correct but she said we were mistaken. Luckily, we had a printout and she accepted the correct amount.

We finally got into the apartment and it was missing the promised computer. I told her because of my job, I had to be available by email and that we would not have booked the apartment without a computer.

In the end, she took 50 Euros off the rental rate but that did not really help me because that meant I had to go to internet cafes to check my email multiple times each day. We did let her know that we were still unhappy and that we wanted a computer as was listed on your site for this apartment.

She said she would bring a coffee maker (& she would try to get a laptop computer) and would come back that night (Tuesday) at 6pm.

We did not see her again until Saturday at 9am when she woke us up when she brought a coffee maker. There was no mention of the laptop again.

Then we saw her again on Monday at 9am. She woke us up to see when we were leaving. It took me awhile to realize she thought we were leaving that day. I told her our flight was on Tuesday and she asked were we were staying Monday night. I said the apartment was rented until Tuesday and she said we were mistaken. I again produced my paperwork and she left.

The apartment was large and seemed like a really nice apartment, in a good location, that had not been kept up at all. I think if the promised computer had been provided that night, if she had not tried to get extra money from us, and if she had not tried to throw us out a day early, we would have perhaps enjoyed our stay. Running back and forth to internet cafes was not fun and we hate to think what would have happened if we had not had our printout of the agreement.

For the last four years we have gone to Amsterdam and this was the worst experience we have ever had. We will be posting reviews of our stay.

Hi Paul and Brenda

Robert here from Amsterdam Stay

Sorry to hear Fedora messed you around. She is not the easiest person to deal with, sometimes being disorganised and a bit scatterbrained.

We have been renting her apartment for a few years now and have only received one complaint in all that time (the internet was not working for one guest). We fixed this by providing a USB stick within a few minutes of being contacted by the guest.

We are problem solvers and we go out of our way to help our clients. All you had to do was contact us on a visit to the internet cafe and all would have been sorted by us.

Our live chat and phone lines are manned 18 hours a day or even an e-mail would have gotten a reply within a few minutes.((You did mail us the day before leaving on your trip).

Any of theses methods of contact and all your problems listed below would have been avoided.

Our office is less than 5 minutes walk from the apartment and we could have provided a computer for your stay and informed/reminded Fedora of your departure dates and amount owned.

Fedora is on the phone to us all the time, asking for arrival times, amount owned by guests and other questions as she seems never to receive or to lose the mails she gets from us with the full booking details of each reservation which includes arrival time and departure date and amount due to be paid.

We are very proud of the service we provide and receive endless praise from our clients as we bend over backwards to help guests in all sorts of ways, during their stays.

Sorry we could not do the same on this occasion. Hope this has not put you off booking with us again.

We have added your comments to our guest comments page so future guests can read.

Any questions do not hesitate to contact me

We thoroughly enjoyed our two-week Amsterdam stay at the Green Queen's Apartment!


Two of us shared the very spacious two bedroom apartment.  The large windows and skylight make the apartment bright.  The kitchen is fully stocked with all the cutlery, dishes and cookware we needed to cook meals.  The beds are comfortable, and there are plenty of extra linens and towels.  We had the apartment cleaned once per week and the laundry done.  It was nice to be able to sit on the roof terrace for a smoke.  This definitely felt like a home away from home, and we loved the neighbourhood with its groceries, shops and restaurants and its very close proximity to Vondelpark!  Great public transportation is also right out the doorstep.


Best of all, Barak Cohen is a really nice guy!  He is flexible and responsive.  He met us punctually at the apartment for check-in, and he remained completely available for any of our needs (although we had few).  We appreciated his friendliness and professionalism most of all.


For the owner of the apartment I can only suggest a few more pieces of furniture on the roof terrace.  We used the two plastic chairs or sat directly on the deck for seating.  A set of four sturdy chairs and a table would be perfect!


Overall ours was a perfect Amsterdam stay, and we definitely want to keep in touch with Barak Cohen for future stays!!!!  We will be back!


Kind Regards,

Norbert stayed at Green Queen's apartment (ID 1805)
