This was my first trip to Amsterdam and to Europe. The location of this Apartment was absolutely the best thing about staying here. It was within a 10-15 minute walk from Cenraal Station. It was easy to walk from the apartment into the center of town, the red light district, and many o the tourist destinations.
This is an apartment building that winds down and back into loft apartments toward the back of the building. There are multiple unites on multiple floors and you must pay close attention to the signs in order to find the correct apartment that you have rented.
The building has a coded entry system which is helpful. The apartment that I had was a key entry apartment which meant that I had to carry around keys and make sure that I kept up with them rather than a card or a code.
I was upgraded to a larger space than I originally booked, which was appreciated. Although it made the location of my apartment much deeper into the building and that made it more difficult to find when I arrived and on late nights. It also meant that there were quite a few stairs.
Also, there was a courtyard between the building and the loft apartments in the back, the doors from the courtyard were never closed which meant that there were leaved inside both of the corridors and, those corridors remained very cold all the time. It was uncomfortable to be in those corridors.
Overall, I would book this location again, within the larger building and not in the stand alone lofts in the back.
