The space

Stylish modern private space of 55 m2 in the Museum district near Museumplein (centre), situated at a square behind the Concert Hall in a very popular and residental area and was built in 1900. The street is quiet and has a lot of trees.
The apartment is in the souterrain (basement). Not the sort of basement where you store your old furniture, but a spacious light
floor. It was digged out in 2007 to create a new extra floor. It took 98 containers of soil to dig this out and the result was astonishing.
A Dutch newspaper came by to write about it ( 2 pages) and showed pictures of the amazing result.
My house is not an average house. One of my guests, an American filmscript writer from Los Angeles described it as "eye candy ".
So if you want to have the same experience you are very welcome
to my house.

My apartment has 3 floors and I live on the upper 2 floors. The lower floor is exclusive for my guests and has its own entrance but we share the same front door. It has a large living/bedroom facing the garden, a small extra bedroom, a little dining room, a bathroom and a kitchen.
Laundry service is available and it is possible to rent 2 bikes.

Living/bedroom : double queensize bed, central heating, cable television with English-(4x BBC) French-German-Italian-Spanish-Sport etc. channels and CNN, CD-DVD, free WIFI internet.

Luxurious bathroom: shower, toilet, bidet, wash basin, heated towel rack and hairdryer.

Kitchen area: kitchenette, fridge, microwave, coffee machine, water cooker, cutlery, kitchen requisites.
The kitchen will be stocked with snacks and choises for breakfast.

The dining area has a large table especially designed by an artist for this room.

Amenities:
- bed linen and towels.
- every two days clean towels
- everyday cleaning service
- baby bed, bedlinnen, baby chair, baby towels and toys 10 euro
per night.

Lots of cinemas, restaurants, terraces, coffee places for breakfast and lunch are nearby, as well as a big supermarket which is open every day until 10 pm.
Every Saturday there is a very charming biological market at the square in front of the apartment.
