we booked both apartments (COMBO), both are great and as shown in the pictures. the apartment has very good WiFi connection and comfortable beds. the location is very good but not the best. I would recommend to stay at this apartment specially if you are a large group.

This the top two floors of a very centrally located building, just a few minutes from the central Amsterdam station. That made it super walkable and it is absolutely beautiful in its finish. The apartments are both very nicely outfitted and we even had some cold beers waiting for us on arrival. I would say only negative is if you are very tall (I'm 6'5") then the low beams can be slightly anxiety inducing, I spent most of my time walking around hunched over. But that isn't a problem if you are of more average height. Overall would highly recommend if you are a large family and looking for something central.

I stayed here with my friends for 9 nights and we absolutely loved the accommodation. Jan and Esther are really friendly and very easy to get in touch with. They replied immediately to any question we had and have been extremely helpful with everything. They sent us very detailed information on how to get there from the airport, and were extremely accommodating even if we got there late because of a delayed flight. Jan met us in person for checking in and showed us around, giving plenty of information on the accommodation but also on Amsterdam. The accommodation is in a very central location, ten minutes walk from the main square, but also very conveniently located five minutes walk from the main train station. Getting there from the airport is extremely easy, and visiting Amsterdam is even easier. Most things are at walking distance, and the train station is also a major bus/tram stop so everything can be reached really easily. The accommodation is very spacious and has everything that you might need. It's clean and very comfortable. Kitchen facilities are new and the living area is great for relaxing, including a nice TV. Bedrooms are nice with big and comfortable beds. I can only recommend staying here - we had a great time and everything was as described. Jan and Esther were always in touch during our stay checking that everything was going well. They also provided guide books in the accommodation so that we could look up where to go during our stay.

Jan and Esther were lovely hosts.. went out of their way to welcome us and help us with anything we needed. Lots of communication beforehand and we felt very comfortable and relaxed about arriving with a variety of family members. They immediately responded to any questions or additional items we needed.

I've just come back from 3 nights in the Combo Apartments and have had the most amazing time. The apartments are stunning and in such a perfect location with views over the canal. We had a large group, 9 of us, and the two apartments were more than big enough. One of the main things I wanted out of our stay was to have communal seating areas rather than multiple separate hotel rooms, and the Combo Apartments definitely gave us just that with living rooms in each apartment. I highly recommend staying here if you have a larger group, or if a smaller group just renting one of these gorgeous apartments. If I come back to Amsterdam I will definitely be looking to stay in these apartments again.
