We loved our stay at Jolien's place. After walking around most of the central area, we agreed that we were staying in the most beautiful part among historic buildings, great shopping and restaurants. It is a residential area so there are no other hotels nearby, and actually the areas where the hotels are located are full of tourists and not as appealing. The apartment is just as described, the perfect size for a couple and really comfortable. We were a bit unsure about being on the ground floor, however it turns out this is the best place to be as most of the older buildings don't have lifts and the staircases are super steep! The apartment is on a really quiet street walking distance to boutique shopping, great restaurant options and all of the Amsterdam attractions. If you don't want to walk too far there is a tram within 5 minutes walk. Jolien left us with some great restaurant recommendations and access to high speed internet, which was really helpful in planning each day.
