    The bed was very very comfortable!

    The WLAN doesn't reach to the bedroom, so the internet is just in the livingroom. After one day, we only had cold water and no heater! This was not very comfortable and I think for this price it's actually unacceptable.

    Gert & Jan's apartment is amazing! Spacious, chic, bright & clean. Beautiful large windows made it airy and pleasant to stay in. Cozy and well laid out. very comfortable compared to our previous apartment-stay in Amsterdam. Definitely the best area to stay in (9 th street District). Hip, accessible and safe. My 5yr old daughter and my husband both had an amazing experience. Truly a happy and a satisfied stay. Not having an AC was not a problem at all because there were many windows (including the bedroom. ) The mattress is very comfortable, the kitchen and the two toilets were roomy, convenient and clean.. Thank you for making our visit super special. We will definitely come back on our next visit.

    Very nice accomodation with complete equipment in Superb location!!!
    This is the best apartment we had compare with our booking within Western Europe and its in front of the canal! Close to everything & everything within walking distance; 9 Street, Dam Square, Anne Franks's, The Church, Palace etc etc.
    Its good location in the centre of everything but yet its in quite district for having a good night rest. The apartment is equipped with apliances & amenities to make the best stay. It can accomodate 4 people without feeling crowded ;)
    At last Saunders the representative they send make us more easier to enjoy & love Amsterdam! The only minor is the air circulation so we have to open from the enclosed windows. And the price is quite expensive. But its expected for a nice apartment in one of the best location in Amsterdam.

    Beautiful canal apartment in a perfect location to get around the city.

    Iron very dangerous with no back
    Trash was left where requested however we were the only people in the street to leave out trash on a Monday evening and found it thrown against the front door the following morning.

    Very close to the center, very spacious and pleasant apartment with lots of space.

    Just leave more toilet paper, soap and coffee and it would not hurt to leave a small bottle of milk.

    Just returned from Amsterdam and stayed in the fantastic Herengracht Residence apartment. We were over the moon with it. It was clean, spacious and very comfortable and only a few minutes walk from Dam Square. We will definitely return to this apartment next time we visit Amsterdam. 10 out of 10 definitely.

    Lovely flat in a fantastic area. Maarten from the lettings team was very helpful and friendly.

    The noise from the upstairs house was very loud. Loud footsteps and music - which disturbed us quite a bit. Not sure we would stay again given the disturbance.

    We very much enjoyed our stay at the Herengracht Residence. It looked exactly as it did online and we were very pleased with everything.
    We used the transfer service which Amsterdam City Apartments offers and it was very reliable and efficient.
    We will be back and look forward to returning very much.

    The only negative was that the sofa bed wasn't made up as had been requested, however the bedding was ready in the bedroom cupboard, so we managed to do it ourselves.

    Location is very useful for all the attractions we went to. The apartment size was excellent.

    We were surprised that there was no soap in the shower. Sadly, we had neighbours having parties until early morning several nights. So very disturbed sleep!

    This is a great apartment in a great location. It is about a 10min walk to Central Station, an AH large grocery two blocks away as is Dam Square. Phillip, who checked us in, was very pleasant and professional. He noticed some minor maintenance items(burned out light bulbs and a tile step needing repair) and they were fixed very promptly. We would HIGHLY recommend this comfortable apartment to anyone traveling to Amsterdam.

    The apartment was very clean. Phillip, who checked us in, was great >very personable but also very professional. Hw walked through the apartment and noted some maintenance items that needed attention. They were taken care of in a prompt fashion.

    We had a wonderful stay at the apartment. It is exactly as shown in the pictures - large, modern and very comfortable. It has (almost) everything you need for a longer stay in Amsterdam including a large bed, two toilets, and a full kitchen (although crockery and glasses are being to run low). It is in a wonderful location and within walking distance of most of Amsterdam's top sites. We used the pick up service and Adriaan was very helpful and made us feel welcome. We will definitely stay here again next time we visit Amsterdam.

    10 out of 10 for all as could not fault anything from arrival to finish. Underfloor heating a bonus, lovely comfortable bed, and situated within walking distance of everything. Superb Asian Restraunt just around the corner called NOOCH, the best food I have tasted in a long while. Back to the appartment, nothing more to say other than GREAT.

    Excellent apartment. Very comfotable as well as stylish. Location could not be beat. Great alternative to a hotel as you have far more room to stretch out and relax. Having a full kitchen was a great bonus. Adrian picked us up and took us to the airport. He was very friendly as well as helpful.
