    I feel lucky that I found this apartment. It's is really comfortable. And the location is perfect. I didn't use public transportation even once. Plus, the owners helped me to get there from the airport and back.

    We had a wonderful stay here. The apartment is exactly as promised. The location could not be better, right across the canal from the museums and a block or so from the street market. It was nice being able to have meals at home and having some room to spread out. The stairs are a non-issue, there are 4 flights of them and you plan for it.

    Myself and my partner were very happy with the apartment. It was clean and tidy and very comfortable and in the perfect location for us.
    My apologies for not remembering their name however the member of staff that met us at the apartment for check in was lovely and very professional. She even helped us mark some locations we wanted to visit on our map along with the local amenities near the apartment to help us with our visit. Little things like this are much appreciated and make the experience that little bit more special.

    Great apartment, the view of the museum was outstanding. Being the Penthouse the apartment felt very private and we had no disturbance from others. The toilet is on the landing outside the main door which was a little strange.
    Location wise we were just over the bridge from the Rijksmuseaum. For us this was perfect. Everything was within walking distance with the Pijp being a little quieter. There was a supermarket down the Street and the local restaurants we visited had great standards.
    This was a treat for a special birthday but I would definitely stay here again.

    We spent 7 nights at Museum view apartment ll on Ruysdaelkade 3 in Amsterdam from 10th March till 17th March. It is a very comfortable quiet beautiful and nice apartment in the centre of the city. It is located just opposite the Rijksmuseum near Leidseplein. So even if you have little time you'll have an opportunity to see all the sights. The appartment has everything you need for a comfortable stay (there was even an iron and an ironing board). We were also able to use the washing machine and the dryer. I would also like to add that despite the cold weather it was very warm inside. So thank you very much, dear Amsterdam City Apartments, for such a pleasant time spent at your wonderful place. I look forward to staying at your apartment again.

    Un apartamento muy bonito y luminoso, con unas vistas muy buenas a el Rijksmuseum desde un lado de la cama puedes ver la hora en el reloj. Bien situado, si te mueves en bicicleta llegas a la Plaza de Dam en cinco minutos. La recepcion fue muy buena, el chico muy amable. Para repetir! Eso si las escaleras para subir AGARRATE!!

    We loved this place wanted to live there for ever.
    view is amazing. close to every thing and has every thing.
    perfect for young couples.
    the sushi down the road AMAZING
    we will always stay here

    Strange the toilet was outside the front door, scary the first night but got used to it hheehe.
    a balcony would be good especially ads there is a space for it. and the stairs are hard work so don't get the top if you can't do stairs.
