Old Masters Apartment

Introduction

The Old Masters Apartment is a 2 bedroom apartment in de middle of Amsterdam’s ancient city centre. The building was constructed in 1610 and it has the grandeur one can only find in the historical buildings at the heart of Amsterdam. This authentic apartment is in a peaceful and quiet family neighbourhood, and therefore not suitable for party people!
The apartment is located on the ground and first floor and has its own patio. Covering 125 square meters, it can host up to 4 persons and is ideal for families. The apartment is fully furnished in a warm, classic style. Additional to the lovely furnishing, it is beautifully decorated with copies of the Masterpieces like The Night Watch by Rembrandt and the Sunflowers by Van Gogh. And, if you desire to get up close the originals, all you have to do is walk around the corner.

Interior

What would Rembrandt’s House be like if he lived right now? Find out when you stay at the Old Masters Apartment. The decoration is bright and warm, with wooden floors and a general classic ambiance. Of course the copies of the Old Masters complete the feeling. The living area with open kitchen is very light, thanks to the high windows on the street side of the building. The living area contains acomfortable sofa and of course all the luxuries one would want: a flat-screen TV, a DVD player, a hi-fi-stereo/CD and of course wireless Internet access.
The kitchen contains all the conveniences that one might want. It contains a hob stove with 4 gas cookers, a microwave and an oven. But of course it also contains a dishwasher, refrigerator, freezer, microwave, toaster, blender, juicer, kettle and coffeemaker. In the kitchen area you will also find a large dining table with 6 chairs.
The toilet can be found just down the hall.

First Bedroom
The first bedroom is situated on the same floor as the living area and has a double bed (180X200cm). It is a quiet, peaceful room at the back of the apartment with a flat-screen TV, bedside tables, lamps and some storage space. The patio will give you the chance to take in some fresh air and enjoy the sun at one of the rare, quiet outside places in Amsterdam.

First Bathroom
This glamorous bathroom is situated close to the first bedroom, like the second bedroom, on the ground floor. You can enter it by using the other staircase. It contains a bath, separate shower, hand basin and toilet.

Second Bedroom with ensuite bathroom
You can reach the second bedroom via the staircase in the living room. The second bedroom is situated on the grond floor and has a double bed (180X200cm). The tiles in are the real origional tiles from the 17th century! It is located at the front of the apartment and conpains a flat-screen TV, bedside tables, lamps and plenty storage space. The ensuite bathroom contains a shower, double hansbasins, washmachine and dryer.

    The property is very spacious, with many amenities, TV's in the living room and both bedrooms, great washer and dryer, fully equipped kitchen. Very central to restaurants, cafes, shops and supermarkets. Tram stop at the end of the street. Very quiet and safe street. Very clean and great value for money.

    Property could be brightened up with a fresh coat of paint, some of the fixtures and furnishings need repairing or replacing.

    This apartment is the perfect place to stay in Amsterdam! I used to live there and know this is the perfect location for anyone visiting Amsterdam. It is nearby the bakeries, museums, tram stops and the Heineken and Albert Cuyp market. The huge bathtub on the lower level was a bonus! And so was the patio area in the back. Maarten picked us up in a vintage auto and was very helpful. A great place to stay with your family or friends. We had a wonderful time!

    It is located next to a bar/cafe - you can hear the people until the bar closes, if you are sleeping in the lower bedroom. Not an issue if you are sleeping in the upper bedroom and or on the couch.

    Excellent location for our family of 3. Tram stop super close and lots of good restaurants in close walking distance. Would stay here again. We used the company's airport pick up service and got a great ride into town.

    Noticed a few little maintenance issues. Some light bulbs out, one hairdryer doesn't work and a couple of pieces of furniture need some minor repair. Nothing that stops you from having fun! There is no A/C, but that is typical in Europe! Overall I recommend this apartment!

    The apartment is very well located. Easy to get to and near to many beautiful sights. The two rooms are very independent and the whole apartment is cozy. The service from Marten was excellent and he was very kind. We had a problem with the light/internet and someone came to the apartment to fix it, even though it was past 10pm! That was great.

    My father-in-law had a little of difficulty accessing the whole bathroom downstairs, because the stairs are narrow and steep. Maybe you need to better describe these on the posting so people understand the situation and are not surprised by it.

    The light in half bathroom upstairs had a timer, that turned off the light very quickly. You couldn't use the bathroom at night without being left in the dark.

    Das Haus liegt unweit der Prinsengracht & ist somit sehr zentral gelegen. Davon ist jedoch in dieser ruhigen Nebenstraße nichts zu spüren. Es ist angenehm ruhig & auch das benachbarte Café ist nicht störend! Das Apartment besteht aus zwei Stockwerken & ist sehr liebevoll und hochwertig eingerichtet. Man fühlt sich sofort daheim. Am besten geeignet ist das Apartment für 4 Erwachsene + ggfls Kinder, aber auch zu 6 Erwachsenen kann man dort unproblematisch übernachten, denn es gibt noch mehrere Schlafsofas! Zwei von uns haben auf den Sofas geschlafen und waren damit voll zufrieden! Die Aufteilung der Räume ist genial & der Innenhof lädt zum Verweilen ein. Der Ablauf war super organisiert & einzelne Wünsche wurden problemlos und spontan erfüllt. Insgesamt ein toller Aufenthalt!

    The apartment is located in one of the nicest yet quiet areas in the centre of Amsterdam. It is fully equipped and has two bedrooms, a living, a kitchenette and two bathrooms. It has a good atmosphere.

    Minor details, such as the broken lids of two bins and a broken hairdryer. A somewhat bigger stock of toiletpaper would be helpful.

    Lovely comfortable apartment with everything you need within close proximity (supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, Coffee shops) and only a 10-15 min straight walk to Dam Square.

    Defo staying again when we come back.

    Nothing major - just not suitable for anyone who doesn't like steps! Steep steps up to apartement, steep steps down to bathroom and second bedroom - but I loved it and would highly recommend

    Location alone makes this fantastic apartment worth every penny! Located just a few minute walk to both the Riijksmuseum, Heineken Brewery and tram lines, this large flat will get let you explore Amsterdam in style and convenience. The interior of this flat is perfect for an on the go group or family. The large, fully equipped kitchen downstairs allows for a "home cooked" meal if you desire. This flat very comfortably sleeps 4 and can sleep 6 fairly easily. It also has a half bath upstairs and a very large full bathroom downstairs. Right next door is a very friendly, quiet cafe that serves some very tasty beers. Lastly, the apartment is nicely decorated with many paintings that you will find in the great museums throughout exciting Amsterdam. Overall, I feel that the Old Masters Apartment offers travelers tremendous value.

    Fantastic location
    Clean apartment
    Smooth pick up from airport very friendly guy.
    Comfortable

    Expensive for what we got and would have been crowded for 6 people (although only 4 came).
    Need to buy a new iron, I ruined my top trying to iron it.
    Would be better if had more english chanels on TV just in case people wanted to chil (also maybe have a few DVD's)
    No matches to light the gas on the cooker
    For the cost I would have expected a welcome pack of basics i.e. milk, jam, bread, wine etc
    Your friendly guy forgot to pick us up for the airport run on the way home which resulted in having to find a taxi at the last minute which made us arrive very late to airport!!!!!!

    Appartment in a charming old house in the very center of Amsterdam. We were five people for a long weekend, and that worked very well. Free wireless internet. Very good service from the rental company: Pick up service from and return to airport (same cost as a cab) - and we could leave our suitcases in the appartment after checkout which was very convenient since we had a late flight on the check out day. Grocery store close to the appartment if you want to make your own breakfast.

    There is no door for the bathroom, so it was cold in the bathroom, and also it is not so convenient to have shower and the bath in the same bathroom, and that is only showers in the house.

    We found the Old Masters Apartment to be very spacious for 4 people (can sleep up to 6). Upon arrival, everything was clean with beds made. Our contact met us outside the apartment on time and gave us a good walkaround and advised us of some events taking place. Very friendly & helpful. The apartment is approx 30 minutes walk from Central Station, and is very close to tram links. A 10 minute walk in either direction leads you to two of the main town squares, so it's close to bars, restaurants, and coffee shops, but also in a quiet location so you don't get disturbed easily. I would recommend the apartment to anyone and would happily stay there when I next visit Amsterdam.
