We had a great staying in Mirjam's place. The apartment is equipped with everything you need, warm, bright and comfortable. She helped us with the map and her hints were very useful. Thank you Mirjam!
The apartment is clean and well equipped; a large bedroom with a living space in the corner. BBC1 and BBC2 available on the television and the internet is very effective.
The kitchen also has a dishwasher and has plenty of crockery and cutlery. Like a former review said, a microwave or a small oven could have been useful, though the local restaurants are very good and well priced, so we didn't eat in. We also learnt how to heat up croissants in a frying pan!
The bathroom is indeed small, but worked very well, with both an overhead shower and a directable shower spray.
We didn't meet Iwan, as he was away on holiday, but Mirjam was really helpful. She showed us the map and where the places to go were, and made us very welcome.
We walked everywhere in Amsterdam itself as the museums etc are so close. We would recommend the walking tour with Joke.
The only place we didn't walk was Zaanse Schans, about a 20 minute train ride away. This is a village of historic buildings, working windmills, a museum of Dutch life and a 1950s chocolate and biscuit factory. A great place to go if you're "museumed out".
The apartment is well located near canal rings and most attractions are within walking distance!
The cleanliness is superb and everything is well maintained! I would like to thank Mirjam for hosting us during our stay.
Great location and very friendly and flexible hosts. The pictures don't really do the flat justice, it is a such a spacious bedroom and a brand new bathroom. Only improvement we could ask for was a microwave/oven in the kitchen, but it is possible to make do with the hob :-)
Thanks again Iwan and Miriam!
The Urban Tulip is located in a family oriented neighborhood close to the museum district and many good restaurants. The apartment is well kept, clean and bright and a very good size for a single person or couple. Mirjam and Iwan are great landlords, always friendly and ready to help.
