My apartment is a nice place to stay during your visit. It's close to the city centre but still in a relatively quiet neighbourhood, close to the 'Westerpark' and river 'IJ'. Many places to eat and shop. On the top (4th) floor of a historic building.

The space

My studio-apartment (30 m2) is at the top floor of a historic building at the corner of a lively street with shops, cafe's and restaurants and a quiet side street. The building has recently been completely renovated, so it's interior is modern but still charming. The high quality bed measures 140x200 and is adjustable, so you can read a book or have breakfast in bed! There is a well equipped kitchen and a spacious bathroom with plenty towels to use. I want you to have everything you need to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Guest access

The apartment is all yours, during your stay. There are 8 more apartments in the building including an exercise room (gym) and a rooftop terrace for shared use. With one key you have access to the entrance of the building and to my apartment, as well to a closet in the hall where I have my vacuum cleaner and other cleaning gear.

Interaction with guests

I live parttime in Amsterdam (for my work) and parttime in the eastern part of the Netherlands (a 2 hour drive away from Amsterdam). You can reach me by phone and by mail. I will not always be able to meet you, but my friends in Bar Mick are at your service (7 days a week, from morning until late in the evening). Bar Mick is at the opposite corner of the street. I will let you know if you have to pickup the key there or if I will be there myself to welcome you.

Other things to note

Be aware that my apartment is at the 4th floor and there is no elevator. So you have to climb the stairs, it's a good exercise! But not suitable for people with disabilities.
Early check-in (before 3 pm) or late check-in (after 7 pm) will be possible in most cases. Please let me know, there maybe an additional fee of 10 euro because of the extra costs I have to make. Late check-out may also be possible or you can leave your luggage upon departure.

Truus place is definitely a must to stay if you want to travel convenient, because right outside of her place you can take the 22 bus which takes you all the way to amsterdam centraal. Also, if you want to get some groceries or refreshment for your stay, you can walk to your right side, down the street there will be a supermarket called Albert Heijn. The flats looked exactly as the pictures that was provided on her page. Modern, homey, and spacious. Although, we didn't get the chance to meet Truus in person, she responded back very quick when we need help or have any questions. She's very well organized and we're thankful for having Truus as our host. This was our first time staying at a airbnb place and it's great. If you're going around this time of month or during summer it'll be very hot, because the fan that was provided didn't do much. Make sure to bring a hand fan or a mini hand fan for travel purposes as well. A long staircase will get you moving alot since its located at the top corner. Good luck carrying your luggage and get those leg days working. It helps alot with some exercise. Will definitely visit again. Hope this help you.

It is a really great place to stay in Amsterdam. The apartment is quite cosy, clean and have everything you would need working perfectly. The location is very good as well. It is only a 15 minutes walk to the center and the 22 bus line is literally across the street. Shops, supermarkets, cafes make the neighbourhood nice and convenient. It is also quiet at night. The apartment is full of sunlight so you may need a sleeping mask if the sunlight wakes you up as there aren't curtains. We couldn't meet Truus but she is a really good host. She always respond really fast and I'm quite sure she would solve any problem in minutes. We picked up the keys at Cafe Walvis. One of the best Airbnb experiences ever.

This is a great apartment to stay in. Close to city center. We mostly walked there or rode the bycicles. The apartment is small but full of sunshine, neat and clean. We had a really nice stay. Lots of shops around including supermarkets. Highly recommend

We have stayed for ten days in the appartement of Truus. It has been very nice and amazing. Everything is like you see it on the photos. We love this place very much, because it's a perfect flat to stay and relax when you've been the whole day in Amsterdam. The bus stops before the door and it takes only five stops to the central station of Amsterdam. Truus is a very friendly person and we had no problems with check in or check out. We only can say, book this flat for your holiday, you'll like it!!! Bernd and Erik

I am living in a rural part of the Netherlands, with my boyfriend and our pets. We like to travel, watch movies and go hiking. We are enjoying the outdoors. We also have a small apartment in Amsterdam that's parttime available for rent. I use it as a pied-a-terre when I'm there …
