    Too much 50 Euro for check-in after 9 p.m. Many flights of low cost companies arrives at Schipol Amsterdam in the late evening. Thank you.

    This is my second stay with Amsterdam City Apartments, and it was even better than the first. The neighborhood was quiet and the apartment exceeded my expectations in comfort, cleanliness, and accessibility. You really get the full experience of living in Amsterdam and the staff is very reliable and professional. We hope to stay again in their other properties to get the full experience of each neighborhood.

    Great apartment in a great location. Value for money. It was warm and cosy with comfy beds in the bedroom and a comfy sofa in the main living space. With a lovely view of the zoo opposite and the sight of the trams going by - which my husband and I both really enjoy - what's not to love! Add to that a kitchen with lots of facilities - kettle, toaster, washer, dryer and more it really feels like you are at home and not just visiting. I will be staying here when we next visit.

    Lovely bright apartment - family of four stayed with no problem! Loved being near the zoo and walkable into Centraal or Nemo Centre for kids - or take trams just outside...
    Kids old enough to manage steep stairs unaided
    Loved it!!

    This was great value, for us, that being said we are a 50 plus couple, so it was ideal for location. Younger people would most likely prefer a location closer to the city centre, but for older travlers this was perfect! We would stay here again or trust any Amsterdam Apt. locations, we would also use "flip key" to find us other places throughout Europe.

    Instructions for TV, Washer/Dryer, and more TP!

    Perfect location
    Well fitted

    Not a negative comment but a suggestion - more hanging space for the wife's (LOL)! Also perhaps put a warning in about the stairs in case an older couple might rent it.

    Nice clean apartment. We enjoyed our stay. Martin was friendly and nice to talk to in the taxi. The late check in fee of 25 euro was a little unfair as the taxi was ordered with our flight details and we arrived on time but other than that everything was good :)

    I spent a nice time in Amsterdam thanks to Amsterdam City Apartments. I lived in a nice flat in front of Acquarium of Artis Zoo, a nice, peaceful and green area very close to the center of the city. I will suggest it to friends and I will come back too next time.

    Maarten who picked us up from the airport was a gentleman from the first phone call to letting us in. The apartment was lovely, extremely spacious, and just what we required. Walking distance to the centre ( 15 mins) yet quiet in a beautiful neighbourhood. Directly opposite the zoo, which is one of the most diverse in Europe. We loved it! I would highly recommend it.

    Great alternative to a hotel, we stayed in a lovely spacious and airy apartment. It was well stocked with the basics, linen, coffee, tea, sugar, wifi etc. I would definitely choose an apartment like this for any future visits, rather than a hotel. Also was really nice not to stay in the center, the area was lovely and quiet, and only 15-20 mins walk from the center.

    Everything was excellent, although the wireless internet was unreliable, the access point was too far away which meant you had to find a place in the apartment where there was reception. Fix the internet and it would be perfect.

    we have used your appartment service now for the past 6/8 years and have always been very happy with the service we recieved. we would normally rent your appartment at nieuwelooiers apartment but was unable to this year, the transisition to artis apartment was easy and did not cause us any problems, in relation to our flights and arrival.

    the staff were very prompt in meeting us at the apartment. the apartment was clean tidy and more than met our expectations. the location is good for all events and venues. we have been very happy so far and look forward to booking with you again for next year.

    there are no negative comments. keep up the good work. see you next year.

    The service from Amsterdam City Apartments was excellent - friendly, helpful and responsive to questions/problems. The apartment was very well equipped with everything you could want in the kitchen including tea, coffee, sugar, washing up liquid etc. which was much appreciated because for a short stay you don't want to have to buy all those things. The apartment itself was lovely and spacious with lots of light and a good view. It was very nicely furnished although some of the furninshings like the curtains and sofas were beginning to feel a little old. The owners downstairs were very helpful when we had a power cut.

    We loved this apartment! The kitchen is perfect with a six-burner gas stove, dishwasher and large fridge. Bathroom is nice and large with a good pressure shower and it's handy to have the extra toilet at the front. The apartment is really large and spacious with easy access to the grocery store and the 9 and 14 tram lines which take you into the centre in about 10 minutes. You can walk as well and get to the Damrak in about half an hour walking. No complaints from us and we'd happily stay here again.

    This is not so much a negative but this apartment may be a bit far out for first-time visitors. We were actually looking for something out of the centre a little bit because we've been to Amsterdam several times. The zoo location is nice and you have the Dappermarkt close as well but first-time visitors will probably find they have to travel a lot to get to attractions.

    Absolutely fantastic place to stay. Other then the stairs up to the apartment we had a brilliant, comfortable stay. Had no problems with the Free Wi-Fi, right across the road from the zoo and a short easy accessible tram ride away (max 10mins) to the city centre. 10min walk from a supermarket, 30mins walk from a Dutch Windmill. Would definitely recommend this accommodation. We'll be going back :o)

    This is the second time in a year I have stayed in an Amsterdam City apartment and I have been very satisfied both times. The Artis Aquarium was a big, beautiful, comfortable apartment in a very nice area. The staff I dealt with at the property rental and at Amsterdam City were all very nice, positive and accommodating. Thanks again for a great stay!

    There was a problem in the original apartment I rented so I ended up having to wait a few hours for the Artis Aquarium to be ready. However, the staff handled it very nicely and efficiently and I ended up getting a nicer apartment than I had originally rented for the lower price, so it all worked out very well.

    The apartment was great, very spacious, modern and well equipped - I loved it. I liked the neighbourhood as well even though its not as central as other locations the tram is right outside your door and only takes 10mins to get into town. There is also nice cafes and pubs close by.

    This apartment is truly spacious and the kitchen is very well appointed. The huge windows are wonderful. Location is perfect for families - it is across the street from the zoo and away from the busy noisy downtown - but only a short tram from all the sights. The supermarket is a pleasant 10 minute walk away.

    The bedroom is not spacious - really only room for a bed and bedside tables. Not a lot of space to store luggage. We had to empty a linen closet to put our clothes in. A dresser or bureau would be nice!

    The apartment was as it appears in the website, large and spacious with al modern coms. Centrally located.

    I would not recommended it to people that are unable to take stairs as this were very steep otherwise, the 4 of us loved it, will stay again for sure.

    The booking was easy and the staff were helpful, the other thing i didn't expect was the large fee Amsterdam city apartments charged so the price you see on web its not the final, bear this is mind. Besides this, had no other problems.

    Go and stay in this apartment and enjoy Amsterdam.

    Fantastic apartment, big, clean, all new, not lacking anything, great windows, spacious rooms and splendid and well equipped kitchen.
    Near the center (10 minutes)
    The staff that served us both before arrival and in Amsterdam was excellent.
    All in all a highly recommended apartment
