The service was very cheerful;special thanks to Jonathan.
The apartment was like beeing home;clean and decorated with taste; the bed is just huge;free tea and coffee;
Very good location
Just a little problem :one of the windows didn't close properly; but that's a detail; everything was excellent
Great 1st floor apartment
We had a lovely short break there and stayed in the 1 st floor apartments. Warm greeting and explanations of how things worked and guides on where to go and what to see. Very clean and well maintained. Extras like fresh flowers, biscuits, nespresso coffees, soaps and shampoos etc.
Good quality furniture and fittings. Close to all the key attractions.
The apartment is a good deal and I recommend it to everyone who is looking for a nice (and not so expensive) stay in amsterdam.
Great apartment,beautiful and confortable, walking distance to everything
Great apartment in amsterdam
We stayed in the artist House apartments for 3 nights.
The location is central, near all major attractions.
The metro is just 50 meters from the apartment.
The apartment is well equipped and clean.
The owner is nice and helpful.
We will definitely recommend this apartment to our friends.
Fantastic Experience in amsterdam
It´s very beautiful, comfortable and nice interior design, you have everything you need and there are a lot of details. Its location is perfect to visit amsterdam.
The perfect place to enjoy amsterdam !
I was looking for a cosy, comfy and chic place to enjoy a romantic weekend. I'm very meticulous when it comes to booking holidays so I searched for weeks and weeks on a lot of websites but either hotels were too expensive or too impersonal and without any charm. So I began looking for apartments and it was just love at first sight when I found this house.
It's a lovely central house with 2 apartments, 1 studio and 1 roof-terrace with a beautiful view. We stayed in the 1st-floor-apartment for 2 nights. We didn't have the luck to meet arvin but we were welcomed by a lovely young belgian man so we could speak french with him. He took the time to explain us everything and to give us some tips and good deals (restaurants...); simply amazing!
The kitchen has everything you need (maybe one advice: buying an oil bottle, we struggled a little bit to cook without it) and we enjoyed a lot the Nespresso Machine.
The bed is just amazingly comfortable and so big !
In the bath-shower, you have shampoo-soap- a toothbrush and toothpaste (in case you forgot it).
You have also a little safe deposit, an ironing board, a hairdryer and maybe other things I don't remember.
Someone comes every day to clean the place (tidy the dishes from the dishwasher for example)
The place is near everything (next to the Red District and in the "Chinatown" where you can find good-deal restaurants). Thanks to the location, we didn't have to buy a metro-card, we did everything by foot.
To sum up: if you're just like me and want to find the perfect place to spend a perfect stay: you just find it so press the button "book" !
But not if you have issues with climbing steep stairs !
This will become the only place I will stay while in amsterdam. It's location is perfect, the apartment is perfectly decorated and kitted out (felt like home) and the staff are probably the best in the business. Overall, a perfect experience.
Nice and central
We came for a Weekend trip. The apartment was very Central and the owner is very nice. The room was very nice and clean.
Very centrally located great flat for city break
Only good things about this place, in all respects - location, quality, staff. May be doing the flat cleaning every day is not really necessary, but this can probably be requested from the staff.
A nice apartment to stay in amsterdam
Arist house apartment is a good choice for people who like to access this city's most famous district in an efficient way. Not far from the railway staion, just besides metro and supermarket, save a lot of time for us. Almost brand-new kitchen wares, and there have enough nespresso coffee cells and fruits for guest, very nice! The staffs are helpful and warm hearted!
Superd, clean studio apartments
The location is unbeatable: right by the Nieuwmarkt in the tourist center of amsterdam. My room was impeccably kept and cleaned, the wifi worked, the check in/out was easy, the welcome was friendly, and with a fridge and microwave I wasn't committed to eating in restaurants. Excellent in every way. Unfortunately the weather didn't really allow me to use the little rooftop terrace, but that's amsterdam.
A home away from home, and ...
This impressive apartment is extremely well located in the center of amsterdam. The owners welcome you and help you bring up your luggage. They give you a quick tour of the flat, and show you the roof access/ yes you can go to the roof and have coffee, whisky even a cuban cigar.
The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen, and a Nespresso machine, and the owner were thoughtful and provide a full Nespresso box, an assortment of tea and a box of stroopwafles.
The place was super clean from beginning to end, the glass windows are the traditional amsterdam windows that enhance natural light and create a very pleasant ambiance in the flat.
Quite frankly the owner and his staff have thought of every possible to make your stay as swift and problem free as possible. All that this flat has and offers is a reflection of the attention to detail that they have put to make your stay, your best travel experience ever...
Appartement excellent et tres bien placé (tres calme malgré la grande place à coté), propreté irréprochable et tres bien agencé. Les propriétaires sont tres gentils et serviables, il prennent le temps de tout vous expliquer sur les petits plus cachés de l'appartement (terrasse sur les toits) et sur les activités et visites aux alentours. Gros point positif sur les petites attentions qui font la différence: bouquet de tulipes fraiches à l'arrivée, gauffres traditionnelles d'Amsterdam...)bref: allez-y les yeux fermés!
I have absolutely nothing to complain about. Friendly reception, spacious and clean room in a great neighbourhood. Arvin and Bo were very friendly and easy to get in touch with. We arrived late and it was no probem to change the appointed arrival. Bo recommended us some good restaurants in the area an was really helpful. There were some problems with the Wifi, but they worked until late in the evening in order to fix it, so it was already fixed the same day. The rooftop-terrace is an absolute plus! We were even offered fresh fruit, biscuits, tea and coffee. I absolutely recommend this place to everyone staying in amsterdam. I've been there several times and i have to admit that this is my absolute favourite.
Makati City, Philippines
Wish I'd stayed longer!
This is the best place I stayed in in my entire European trip. The location is perfect, the welcome was awesome and the place itself is a-1. Couldn't ask for more. Thank You!
Amsterdam is beautiful and perfect city for relaxation rather al
The hotel is ideally located. All rooms at the new and very well equipped. Hotel workers are not noticeable, but respond very quickly to your problems. Pleasant surprise free gifts at check-in. I will always stay at this hotel.
Exceeds 5 stars.
The location is excellent. But, the real extra is the exceptional welcome by the owner. The flat is really nicely decorated by an oviously good taste owner. All is thought out to make your stay more than pleasant. We booked for 3 nights and would have liked to stay longer in spite of the lousy weather.
The owner and his team are exceptional. They really care and will go out of their way to please their guests.
Only praises can be given.
? can offer this apart
everything was ok. especially arvin who is the manager of that apart was so kindly. clean and lux an apart. nice kitchen and there is an espresso machine.
Seniors from British Columbia
Great place to stay
Enjoyed the comfort of this suite - it was great to have the kitchen even though we did not use it for other than breakfast. The location was very convenient and a short walk to Central Station. The staff were very helpful when we arrived. Stair were as step as most older buildings in amsterdam which could be a concern to those with mobility issues - otherwise no problem.
A great accommodation in the heart of the heart of amsterdam
- Perfectly decorated to offer ultimate comfort.
- Perfectly located in the heart of amsterdam: on equal walking distance from all sites and attractions.
- Friendly, Helpful and welcoming hosts
- A nice terrace overlooking amsterdam's city from the rooftop is available to enjoy a nice smoke out on sunny days
Really nice apartment
Beautiful and spacious (rare in amsterdam!) apartment very close to the metro station. Agreat place to stay.
Great location, cool apartment :)
We stayed in the apartment for three nights, and it's been great.
The apartment is beautiful, and has a nice balcony.
De ontvangst, het verblijf en het afscheid tot in de puntjes geregeld en in orde.
As a larger group, we rented all 3 apartments and it was the best experience we had till now in amsterdam (and I'm staying in amsterdam twice every year)! New, clean with a friendly host and the bed rooms are quiet because they are on the backside of the house.
Perfection in amsterdam
Extraordinary place! Artist House apartments amsterdam was definitely the best lodging choice I could have ever made. Unbeatable location, friendly and knowledgeable staff, excellent amenities, complimentary Nespresso and gourmet tea, lovely bathroom, roof terrace, living room and bedroom. Really nice, clean, modern and well kept. Design oriented. Wonderful pillows and bedspread, plenty of clean warm towels. Privacy and excellent atmosphere/neighborhood. Walking distance to a medieval castle!! Restaurants, metro stations, taxis, coffeeshops...well everything really! An absolute home run, and a lovely home feeling one cannot experience at a large chain hotel. Definitely a must if you plan on enjoying your lodging as much as the rest of your trip to amsterdam!
the right way to visit amsterdam
Everything was perfect. The apartment was spotlessly clean. many details of sympathy, as Nespresso, tea, biscuits, fruit. bathroom with shower gel, shampoo and conditioner.
Apartment located in a central district, but in a quiet street with a supermarket nearby.
Being an apartment with kitchenette, we can buy food at the supermarket and heat in the microwave, since the restaurants in town are expensive and nothing special, it's perfect.
It feels like we are living in the city, not just at a hotel.
The best stay ever
The apartment is awesome, really cute furnitures, all the services great, and a very nice location you can go anywhere walking, the price is very cheap comparing all you can got. You can cook, watch tv, take a rest, take a nice bath, keep safe your belongins and enjoy all the city. Simply wonderful.
Excellent apartment in a convenient location.
Immaculately presented apartment less than 10min walk from Central Station. The stairs are no steeper nor narrower than the ones in my Victorian house the Uk. The ones to the roof terrace are steep but it's a choice to go up there.
Arvin let us drop off our luggage at noon when we arrived and took it up to the apartment for us at 3pm. Comfortable kingsize bed and all new modern fitments throughout. Everything you could possibly need to hand. Arvin was very helpful throughout our stay.
Pizza a few doors away, restaurants, bars etc 2 min walk. Access to the metro just across the road (1 stop from central station) takes you to the tram network.
Roses the table brightened the room; tea, coffee and condiments provided.
Easy walk to all main attractions of central amsterdam. Although it's only across the road from the Red Light district the street itself is quiet.
When we left we could leave our bags and collect as we were leaving amsterdam.
Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
a great apartment. friendly host, ideal location no noise yet just around the corner from lots of attractions. nothing at fault at all. loved the massive comfy bed
Artist House apartments is by the far the best apartment rental I have ever stayed in. It is fantastically priced and ticks all the boxes for a perfect stay. Bas was a gentleman and we couldn't have asked for better service. The location is amazing and there are plenty of places to eat and drink in the local area.
séjour à 2, cadre très agréable
petit hôtel charmant, intimiste, avec accueil parfait, plein de bonnes attentions (des fleurs fraîches aux petits gâteaux), à deux pas du centre de vie d'Amsterdam
un séjour très plaisant
very nice appartment, very spacious whith a terrace on the roof.
A very warmly welcomme whith flowers, fruits and wafers.
We arrived earlier for entering the appartment, but as it was ready we were able to occupied it as soon. Very great
Wonderfully well maintained apartment with good views and locati
Arvin, the owner of this apartment is friendly and very helpful. The apartment is very well appointed, clean and tidy. Staff helped us with everything we asked for. The Nespresso machine with supplied capsules is a great touch.
Arvin was always very helpful with places to go, to eat and with help to get a taxi at the end as well as helping us set up a private tour that we asked for.
Artist House apartments is a place I would absolutely consider returning to on our next trip to amsterdam.
Awesome stay, great staff. Do not hesitate.
My wife and I stayed at the apartment on the first floor. Check in was a breeze and the staff went the extra mile in preparing the place for us. The place was very modern, clean and in an excellent location. Why book a hotel when you can have access to a full kitchen? Very spacious place and well appointed overall. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful with info about amsterdam (first time visiting). You can immediately tell that the staff put a lot of thought and effort into this apartment. We were both very appreciative of their attention to detail and welcoming spirit.. In short, we both highly recommend artist House to anyone interested in experiencing a laid back, fun time in amsterdam in a quality location.
Very good choice
The apartment is cosy, well decorated, the kitchen has all we need. Coffee, tea and some fruit are available for guests on each apartment.
This is a very good option to stay in amsterdam.
Eine wirklich schöne Wohnung und eine sehr angenehme und hilfsbereite Kommunikation! Bei der ankunft standen frische Blumen auf dem Tisch und diverse Früchte. Auch der Kaffee/Tee waren inbegriffen. Ein super Preis/Leistungs-Verhältnis! Die Wohnung ist sehr gepflegt und wurde kürzlich renoviert. Sie liegt in einer ruhigen Seitengasse Nähe Redlight und Chinatown. Ich würde sofort wieder buchen und kann sie nur empfehlen!
This apartment has a perfect location, very modern and have all necessary things.
Everything perfect except the bed which in my opinion is waý to soft.
A perfect place!
I highly recommend you this apartment! It's more than gorgeous,a wonderful place with wonderful people. You will be impressed by the beauty and cleanliness of the apartment. If you wanna start your holiday with a good mood, you should stay at this great place.
Thank you guys for everything!
Fi and Matt
Gorgeous funky apartment staffed by absolute legends, a must!
The apartments are funky and tasteful. They had great amenities and are close to all the action, whilst still being quiet enough to wind down when needed. The staff are great, friendly and super helpful. Arvin and the team couldn't have been more hospitable. From the welcome coffee and 'stroopwaffels' to information on where to go and what to do, here is the accomadation in amsterdam you've been looking for.
Our short time being here has been just great
This is the best place I have ever stayed in my life. Amaizing roof terrace, design, location, complimentary little things and hospitality are just perfect. Will stay here again next time.
An elegant apartment with a very central location
The apartment was very comfortable and spacious, with very good kitchen facilities, elegant decor and immaculately clean. The owners were very friendly and helpful, allowing us to leave our luggage on arrival and departure, and taking the suitcases up and down stairs, which was much appreciated. It is very well situated in the centre of the city, with a metro station on the doorstep and the trams a few minutes walk away, and lots of bars and cafes in the vicinity.
We had the second floor apartment and owing to the nature of the building the stairs were very steep, but we managed them OK with care. The kitchen facilities were very good, and included a nespresso machine, the addition of a toaster would have made it perfect!
Where to start?
I can only recommend this apartment from the inner depth of my heart!
The owners and staff were on top of anything I have ever experienced so far in my travel career.
The follow up prior to arriving, the walkthrough and history lesson, the small treats, the cleanliness of the room, the interior design, and so on... I could go on forever!
Me and my wife stayed in one of the apartments (3rd floor, top).
We spent the weekend (friday to sunday) enjoying amsterdam from all its qualities, and could easily drop by the apartment with our shoppings to then straight go do some more sightseeing etc.
Very central location, and I guess we were lucky with the weather, enhancing the experience even more:)
The owners, Arvin and Hans, have done an excellent job refurbishing and designing the apartments. They were also very kind, and took the time for a group picture before our departure. All the small things adds up to the overall best experience we have ever had.
Arvin and Hans, thank you so much!:)
Excellent apt, location,owners.
The apartment is very smartly appointed, very clean and modern, with all that one needs in the kitchen. The owners went out of their way to be helpful with restaurants, luggage, etc.
Ozge&Bulut; in excellent artist House apartments
when we turned back to home we said only one thing "our new home in amsterdam is perfect!" Artist house apartment is a great place to stay in amsterdam! (it was not the first to being in amsterdam and i have an experiance at the other homes, hostel, hotels etc. but this place is perfect :)). It locates at the city centre and so close to everywhere. Arvin (the owner) is a prefect men. He is very helpful, kind, respectful and smiling everytime that make people happy. I want to thank both arvin&Hans; for their hospitality. We are 100% sure that, we will stay at artist House apartments for the next visit.
Really nice place, great service, well located at a fantasitc pr
I am a regular business traveller and when let down by a regular supplier of accommodation I found this little gem in the middle of town.
The apartments are well equipped and very comfortable. The owners were very helpful, friendly. This is a location that offers great value for money and one to where I will be returning to when in amsterdam.
Centrally located and well appointed apartment
We had a very relaxing time. The location was central and the apartment had everything we needed. Neat and clean.
Perfect apartment with attention paid to every detail.
We stayed for 3 days in the artist House apartments. Arvin could not have done more to ensure the stay was perfect. We are frequent travellers and have rarely stayed anywhere with such attention to detail; fresh flowers, bowl of fruit, large selection of teas and coffees (with an espresso coffeemaker), toiletries - including toothbrushes and toothpaste in case they are forgotten. The weather was awful (umbrellas available) and for some reason we had mosquitos in the night (mixture of window open and strange weather pattern). When we arrived home that night arvin had been out to buy some anti- mosquito plug ins. Incredible!

It was the best stay ive had in amsterdam. The service was great and arvin was very helpful. The apartments were lovely. It was close to everything. I would defo recommend it to others and espically the roof toop terrece was great.
Perfect for an amsterdam city trip
We had a perfect stay in the artist House apartment. A very warm welcome and a perfectly prepared apartment. There was even a fully equipped kitchen with a nespresso coffe mashine and capsuled offered!
If you don't mind to live nearby the red light dirstrict - Arvin's apartment's just perfect for a stay in amsterdam!
Gorgeous apartment in a great location
On arrival we were met by the owner arvin who could not be more friendly or helpful. It's a really short walk from amsterdam central station. Everything we needed was provided in the apartment including all the coffee and tea we could drink. Within the vicinity there's a load of lovely bars and restaurants and all the major attractions and museums are within walking distance. Would recommend artist apartments to all my friends and family and would go back tomorrow!!! Thanks a lot arvin and company for helping enjoy your beautiful city.
Chris and Dawn
The apartment is really nice. Everything is new, modern, very comfortable and right in the heart of the city. Arvin and his team are more than friendly and very obliging. -- Just perfect!
Nothing but good things to say! Fabulous apartment- well appointed and well maintained. Nice extra touches (such as large fluffy shower towels and a fresh fruit bowl upon arrival). In a great location - walking distance to everywhere in the the historic city center. The Hotel Staff were great - we arrived later than scheduled, but they waited for us and were gracious upon our arrival. Even made some phone calls to local businesses to get information we needed.
Excellent location but noisy during Queen's Day week
I would have given it a 5 stars if we hadn't stayed during the week of Queen's Day. The music was on for a week and non-stop until midnight. You can hear the music pretty loud even with our windows closed.
Arvin, our host is super helpful and Bong, the house cleaner is super nice. The apartment is located in Nieumarkt Square, very central to everything. It's only 10 minutes walk from amsterdam Central station and close to so many good food (ranges from Indonesian to Chinese to Dutch). The apt. is very clean and roomy, and the bed is very comfortable. It is actually a suite and we liked it very much. However, we didn't like the narrow and steep stairway. We understand they can't do anything about it because it's a historic building.
Artist House is a fabulous place to stay in amsterdam
My husband and I stay for 10 days in april 2013. Prior to arrival arvin ensured all plans were taken care of. Upon arrival we were pleasantly greeted and assisted with our suitcases to our apartment up a steep staircase. The stairs were not a problem for us and as mentioned on both arrival and departure our suitcases were carried for us. The apartment is completely renovated, tastefully decorated and spotless. Cleanest accomodation I have ever stayed in. The location is in Newmarket very convenient to everything including the Central Train Station many restuarants, pubs and markets. We walked to anne Frank House the Van Gough Museum and throughout old town amsterdam. The apartment is quiet in though it is central. The street it is on has a great pizza restuarant and a fabulous traddtional Dutch restaurant. I have recommended artist House to both a friend and a family member who will be travelling to amsterdam. Finally arvin is a fabulous owner who will provide restaurant recommendations, arrange taxis and provide tourist information. Thanks for a fabulous experience in amsterdam...!!
Je vous conseille vivement les appartements de Mister Quirante, excellente situation centrale, facilement accessible, et tout est faisable à pieds. Les appartements sont confortables et parfaitement équipés, on s'y sent comme à la maison. Sans oublier l'accueil des propriétaires qui sont absolument adorables. Allez-y les yeux fermés!!! Amsterdam est véritablement une ville pleine de charmes...
New York City
Perfect in every way
The title pretty much sums it up--it's a home away from home. The location is great, the service is great, all the little extra touches like snacks/fruits/coffee make you feel great. This will be our definite top choice for a place to stay next time we're in amsterdam.
exceeded all expectations
We loved everything. The flat is decorated with great taste, and has some extra facilities that come as a bonus such as a fully equipped kitchen (electric hobs, microwave, dishwasher but no oven), a Nespresso machine with capsules and a selection of teabags. They have pretty much all the basics for cooking and dining, including salt, pepper, sugar cubes etc. There is a flat screen tv with many international channels. I even asked them to purchase a pay per view event for me, which they did (clearly I had to pay for that). There is everything one may need in the bathroom. Shampoo and bath foam are not provided in the typical tiny disposable plastic bags but are just like those one would have at home. My girlfriend had forgotten her toothbrush and she found one there. The bed was big and very comfortable. In the bedroom there were even 2 umbrellas for the guests to use. It isn't a hotel but still provides some services that one would expect from a hotel. They can provide tourist information and a cleaner comes to hoover and tidy up the room. The location is right in the middle of the city centre. We could walk anywhere and the metro station is just downstairs (1 stop away from central station, you may as well walk). Trams are a short walk away but we barely needed them.
If I really had to find some negatives, I would suggest to create a small social area for guests and hosts to meet when they are home. Currently, the hosts live in a separate flat and you need to knock on their door if you need anything (it has to be said that they will still attend you very warmly though).
We will be back
We had an excellent stay, the welcome was completed. The apartment is very well equipped. It is highly likely that we returned. In any case, we already make the advertising around us
A Diamond in the center of amsterdam
This beautifully appointed apartment is situated right at the corner of Nieumarkt which is in the heart of amsterdam. Within a few steps from the door there are fabulous cafes, markets, the red light district and wonderful museums. Nothing is too far to walk. Upon arriving you are greeted by a wonderful and caring staff of people who show you this well stocked flat. There were beautiful tulips and fresh fruit that adorned the table as well as a whole box of coffees for the nespresso machine and flavorful teas. The bed is very large and so comfortable with beautiful linens and bed coverings. We are traveling all around Europe and this is, by far, the finest of all the apartments. The owner, Arvin, has thought of everything!
I also thank his staff Charlie and Bong for making our stay memorable and perfect!
Very nice place
has everything you need, very clean, excellent location for exploring amsterdam
Best apartment Ever
Not more to add than the title line!
Apartment is in great loaction, walking distance from central train station and main attractions of amsterdam.
The apartment itself has all neccesary utencils (kitchen, bathroom fully equiped, even with basics cosmetics). Its nice & clean, spacious but cozy and more importantly warm (as its was still freezing outsied).
What makes is Excellent is all the little extra touches arranged by arvin - like a welcome gifts (Fruits and sweets)proper tea and coffe! and those nice tulips :-)
And ofcourse pig plus of the place is arvin who manages the place. He was very helpfull giving us brisk overview of the place, amsterdam to do & lots of positive energy :-)
I hope if I am in amsterdam summer time I manage to get the place there - as I still need to try the rooftop patio!
Home like place to stay
We enjoyed our time there and looking forward to come back some day. Thanks to arvin and staff, great work!
Perfect Stay in the Dam!
Our Stay at the artist House appartments could not have been better. Arvin himself met us there, nothing was too much trouble, there were refreshments and flowers in the appartment and he even got biscuits for my partner. I loved the Nesspresso coffee machine. There is a supermarket and several good bars & pubs nearby.
Absolutely couldnt fault it - spacious, immaculately clean and such a comfortable bed.
You dont get views of the canals but when you are this central to the sights who cares. Deffo 10 out of 10!
A wonderfull week-end
It was an excellent stay, you will be very welcome by arvin. The place is extremely clean and , everything is done to be confortable. We will come back !
We were at amsterdam on the first weekend on March and since we arrived to the apartment they made us feel as we were at home. We strongly recommend this apartment unless you have problems with stairs. Cool and fancy, everything we needed and more, and the location was also superb.
Consiglio a tutte le persone che vogliono godersi questa splendida città..
When booking a place to stay in amsterdam, we wanted somewhere central, comfortable, clean and friendly. Artist apartments was exactly what we were looking for and much more. When we arrived from Schipol airport, we were greeted by the lovely arvin who showed us around the beautiful one bedroom apartment. The apartment included a modern open plan kitchen, ceiling to floor windows, a huge comfortable bed, a reasonably sized bathroom and a complimentary beautiful bouquet of red roses and chocolates for Valentines Day. Furthermore, the apartment could not have been more central, it took us 10 mins by foot to get to central station, 5 minutes to the red light district, 15 minutes to the shops and 15 minutes to the flower market and for those who prefer public transportation, the metro is 2 minutes away. There is also a delicious and reasonably priced pizza restaurant a couple doors down and Cafe Bern which serves fantastic fondue right around the corner. These apartments may not be suitable for children or anyone who has trouble climbing steep stairs but I would highly recommend artist apartments to anyone who is looking for a romantic, comfortable stay in amsterdam.
The experience was excellent!
The service was beyond our expectation. We were welcomed with some free extras such as coffee (nespresso), fruit and dutch delicatessen /Stroopwafels) and even a bottle of wine! The staff was very helpful whenever we needed.
The apartment is located within a classified building, central (walking distance to all the city attractions), very clean, warm and cozy, quiet and well decorated and equipped (TV, kitchen facilities etc.).
If there is anything that we can suggest is just a Portuguese channel :)
We just loved everything and we already suggested the artist House apartments to some of our friends. If we ever visit amsterdam again, we will sure stay here!
Ps. Not suitable for disabled people because there is no elevator.
El apartamento era precioso y muy acogedor. Había un montón de detalles que hacían que estuvieras como en casa.
La ubicación era muy buena, cerca de la estación central y demás zonas de interés de la ciudad. Además hay un supermercado justo al otro lado de la plaza donde puedes comprar lo que quieras por si quieres desayunar o cocinar en el apartamento.
El servicio también fue muy bueno, tanto en los emails previos para reservar como una vez llegados allí. Fueron realmente simpáticos y atentos en todo momento.
The 'Beating Heart' of amsterdam - eclectic but discrete locatio
Artist House - excellent location 100 metres from Metro. Canal District, China Town, bijou cafes & bars abound locally. Immaculate apartment, very comfortable and contemporary also loaded with amenities. Hospitable welcome and a real sense of pride of ownership from arvin.
Very steep stairs to access upper rooms, so not suitable for less than reasonably nimble folks. Great value and I would return without hesitation.
What's a wonderful staying
The brand new flat is nicely decorated, Very clean, and well equipped.
Very quiet, the team is very friendly and at your disposal for advice for your staying.
A very nice apartment in amsterdam
The welcome was warm and sincere. When we entered the apartment, we immediately noticed the cleanliness and neatness of the apartment, but also the cosiness.
In the apartment we also had some fruit, sweets and nespresso and all this free of charge. We found that these things really were an asset on our stay.
As for the location; this was also excellent. Everything could be visited by foot and it was not noisy during the day nor the night. So we had a very good night's rest!
To conclude, we had a very nice stay in amsterdam and would recommend artist House apartments!
Stacey & James
One of the best places we have stayed it the perfect location.
The apartment we have stayed in was the studio apartment, the whole building is modern clean fresh and tidy, the apartment is beautiful and I could quite happily live there. It is quite spacious inside and decorated lovely with and furnished everything you need. We had our own terrace which was lovely with access to the roof also. It is situated 30 seconds from the metro station or a 5-10 minute walk to amsterdam central but Newmarket is a perfect town for a quite getaway with everything you would need. Best of all was the service arvin has been so kind and helpful both time we have stayed making sure we made the best of out stay with complimentary waffles, chocolates, wine, a fruit bowl, a tea selection and use of a espresso machine with everything you need to go with it. I couldn't of asked for better service or a nicer appartment. Everything we imagined and more.

Wonderful apartment, location and hosts in amsterdam
We spent 3 great nights in the beautiful artist House apartments. The apartment was in a great location just steps from the Metro stop and Nieuwmarkt. There are several great restaurants and pubs in the area as well as a market for picking up any food or supplies.
The kitchen was well appointed including great coffee and tea selection. The entire apartment was clean and comfortable.
Our host arvin met us at the apartment and marked on a map all the places we were interested in seeing as well as others he suggested. Communication before our trip was also easy, quick and informative.
I highly recommend a stay at the artist house. If I'm ever lucky enough to be in amsterdam again, I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Such a great value for a comfortable, convenient space.
These apartments are in the Nieuwmark district. They have recently been renovated to a very high standard. It ...
has a small kitchen area with everything you would need if you wanted to cook, including a microwave and nespresso machine. It even had a dishwasher. There is a table and chairs and a sofa. The TV has many channels, including BBC.
The bedroom is at the back and once there, you can't hear the street noise. The bathroom has a bath and shower over it. Toiletries are included- right down to toothbrushes and toothpaste. A hairdryer is included.
A big bonus is that the apartments have Wi-Fi.
The owners have gone out of their way to be welcoming. We arrived early and they were happy to keep our bags till the apartment was ready. We wanted to find our way to a sports hall where oh had to collect his things for the marathon on Sunday. Arvin didn't know how to get there but went off to find out for us.
When we did arrive back to our apartment we found a vase of perfect roses and a big bowl of fruit. Also provided was a nespresso capsule selection box and a similar one for tea, which must have had every possibility under the sun. There was also a tin of waffles.
The apartment was absolutely spotless. The location is ideal as its two minutes to Chinatown and 10 mins walk to the Dam area. Almost all of the site seeing is walkable to. We had a 3 day metro ticket, which was at a discounted price, but didn't use it as often as we thought we would.
My boyfriend and I stayed here for four nights. It by far exceeded our expectations. Arvin and Hans are wonderful hosts and went above and beyond with their service. My flight arrived several hours before the standard check in time but was allowed to check in anyway. Arvin sat down with me and showed me where all of the main attractions were on a map, as well as pointing out where I could rent a bicycle or a scooter. He had great recommendations about local restaurants as well.
The apartment was beautiful and was in an ideal location. Just steps away from a tram station, but also within walking distance of almost everything. Beautifully renovated and spotlessly clean. There were also very thoughtful amenities such as a Nescafe and tea selection. I truly felt at home here.
I would absolutely stay here again and would highly recommend it.
Quiet retreat in the heart of amsterdam
We loved staying at the artist House. It is beautiful and freshly renovated but still maintains its historic charm. The apartment had everything we needed in addition to its excellent location. Arvin is lovely and was incredibly helpful, explaining every aspect of the apartment and the area. The location right off the market can't be beat where there's a huge variety of restaurants and pubs to choose from. It is also just a short walk from Central Station and sights like the Rembrandt House and the Jewish Historical Museum. Rest assured, however, that despite this central location you will still get an excellent nights' sleep!
Southern Pines, NC
My husband and I just spent a week at the artist House. We arrived, exhausted after an international flight at 10:30 am. We called arvin from the airport, hopped on a train to Central Station, and made the 10 minute easy walk to the apartment where arvin met us. No hassle with a "2pm” check-in! The apartment house is historic, old and beautiful from the outside, and completely new and modern on the inside. There are three apartments in the building, one on top of the other, and ours was located on the first floor, after very manageable steps. The apartment itself is newly rebuilt, furnished and is immaculately clean. In the living area, the whole front wall is composed of huge, beautiful, old windows that open to the street. As the building is located in the Nieuwmrket area, people are enjoying the square at night, so you can sit at the kitchen table and enjoy the city sounds. When it comes time to sleep, you walk to the back of the apartment; shut the door to the bedroom suite, and it is dark and quiet. We slept at least 9 hours a night! The bed was very comfortable, and the bath had all the newest fixtures. And our host! I totally trust arvin! Arvin had furnished the apartment with a beautiful vase of tulips (they bloomed all week), fruit, wine, a nespresso machine full of coffee choices and a box of heavenly chocolates. He came mid-week to provide fresh towels and see if we wanted our sheets changed. Regarding the location of the apartment, we couldn't have asked for better. Because amsterdam is so beautiful and safe, we chose to walk to attractions all but 2 days, when we rented bikes. When we go back, we will rent bikes the whole time because that is so much fun and everyone is a bike rider! Grocery and shopping are all close by. We rank amsterdam as a top destination, probably due in part to the wonderful experience we had at the artist House and the kindness of our host, Arvin.
Luxury in amsterdam
The moment the apartment was booked I received nothing but excellent service from arvin and Chris.
The quality of the apartment was outstanding with an incredible attention to detail from the flowers and fresh fruit through to your own supply of toiletries.
The apartment is a 10 minute walk from Central Station in a really nice part of town. Close enough to all the sights and sounds of wonderful amsterdam yet sufficiently secluded to not hear any noise.
This is a very reasonably priced high quality apartment where the owners really have put in a tremendous amount of effort - I will definitely be going back. Read more

Thank you Julie!
Lovely apartment in a perfect area of amsterdam
This apt is brand new with very nice comforters/linens. The owners even provide Nepresso coffee and tea for your convenience. One of the owners met us at the door and took the time to walk us around the area
showing us delicious restaurants and information. Very helpful. This apt
is truly steps away from the a very fun red light district that we found to be safe and with very good restaurants.
