A basic but lovely and comfortable little apartment with original details and a lot of character, on a residential side street in beautiful central Amsterdam. Perfectly located in walking distance near De Pijp, Leidseplein and the Centrum.
I usually live here when I'm not traveling so it's a charming personable space, with a beautiful oak floor, Portuguese tiling in the bathroom, artwork on the wall and well stocked kitchen cabinets so you can feel at home away from home.
It's a small place but it feels spacious because I keep it uncluttered, it has a nice Zen feel to it.
The apartment is on the third floor, to be reached with stairs that are quite narrow and steep, compared to modern apartment buildings.
This is typical, authentic Amsterdam architecture since the city is very densely populated and the historical houses in the city centre are built on very narrow plots of land.
The bedroom with a double bed is one floor up in the attic, a lovely quiet space where you will sleep under the wooden roofbeams. It has a bay window with a traditional Amsterdam hoist beam overlooking the city.
There are two small sofas in the living room that can be folded down flat and turned into a single bed. Bed linen and towels are provided. Please note that since the bedroom is in the attic you will have to climb a short, little ladder from the living room to the bedroom, so this is not for the elderly!

- Amsterdam city council tourist tax of 5,5% included in the price

Interaction with guests
My apartment is a real home, custom made by me and shared with you, not a chain-hotel or dime-a-dozen hostel. As you can see I provide a lot of info for you about the apartment and about myself and I have
quite a few references, so you can feel comfortable and secure renting my place; you know what you will get!
I would like to ask the same from you; please fill out your profile with some background information about yourself and provide me with some information as to why you would like to rent my apartment when you enter a booking request, especially if you don't have any reviews or references yet. This way I can feel equally secure in renting out my lovely apartment to you.
I'm not always around to meet you for check-in but I have perfect arrangements for you to pick up the key in a nearby cafe or a friend who will be there to meet you for check-in or be on standby in case of
trouble. You can always call, email or text me or my friend should issues arise.
Detailed info about how the heating and internet etc. work is provided in the Airbnb house manual you'll receive with your reservation confirmation.

Born and raised in Iceland. Music and Arts are my passion.
Lived in Reykjavik for many years until I moved to Amsterdam to meet the love of my life and enjoy the special, endearing atmosphere of this beautiful city!
Now I live in Amsterdam where I'm studying Computer Science at the Vrije Universiteit. I also run a vinyl House music record label with releases from international artists and producers. It's great to be in the heart of the city to experience what the great local scene has to offer.
Relaxed and open-minded. Looking forward to making your stay pleasurable!
