"Perfectly sited for museums,shops, nice places to eat and drink with very helpful and interesting owner."
Our stay was perfect .The apartment is very pleasant,comfortable and well equipped and Wilbert could not be more helpful.His taxi service to the airport made our last day enjoyable and hassle free!
Great ,friendly pub just round the corner and Kartika on the Overtoom is good Indonesian.
Short walk gets you to chic shops and on to the Rijksmuseum,Stedelijk and the Cocertgebou.
Number 1 tram is just round the corner too and takes you to the centre and the station.
Helmerstraat itself is peaceful but if you want lively it is a few steps away at the end of the street.Nothing you want to see is outwith walking distance.Loved our 4 days.We go to Amsterdam every year and would come back here in a heart beat.

"Great time in Amsterdam & a brilliant base to stay"
The apartment is so easy to get to; train from the airport takes only 6/7 minutes to Lelylaan station, down to catch the No.1 tram & 5 minutes later you're off the tram & walking round to the apt.
Location is ideal, with the Vondelpark only about 5 minutes walk across the main road, easy to stroll though the park to get to the museums (10/15 minutes away), catch the No1 tram into town or walk to the end of the street (grab a coffee at the corner cafe) & catch trams east or west. If you want to buy food & drink, there is a large supermarket 5 minutes away, & plenty of cafes too.
The apt is really spacious & well equipped. It has everything you need & more, like the impressive fitted wardrobes in the bedroom (housing the 2nd tv) & the huge, comfortable bed. If the weather is chilly, the central heating warms it up in a few minutes.
Verdict: a great place to stay.

Great value for money which comes along with an idyllic location - 3-4 tram stops away from the hustle and bustle. The apartment is spacious and very comfortable for two people and Wilbert is a truly … More

"Great Location in an upmarket neighbourhood"
We stayed at Wilberts apartment for 3 nights. It was very easy and cheap to get to from the airport (train to Leylaan, tram 1 to jan Pieter on the Overtoom) and cost around 5 euros for a 1 way journey. The apartment itself is in a lovely residential area "Oud West' that reminded me of Notting Hill.
The apartment is comfortable for 3 nights and very airy with French doors to the street and garden. The bathroom is spacious and the cooking facilities are good although we had no requirement to use them.
We ate breakfast at 'bagel & beans' around the corner - a fabulous coffee shop with healthy juices and a huge variety of bagels on offer. We also ate one evening at an Iranian restaurant around the corner on the Overtoom which does not look too impressive from the outside but serves great food full of interesting flavours (thanks to Wilberts recommendation). A little further down from here there is a great Indian restaurant called Dosa which serves great food and a few doors down is the Cafe Gollam which serves over 70 beers. We loved the area as it saved falling into the 'tourist trap' around Liedesplein etc. you are only a 15 - 20 minute walk from the busier areas (3 mins on the tram) but we found ourselves quite satisfied with the area of Oud West as there are lots of cafe bars and places to eat dotted around the streets.
Across the busy road you can access Vondel park and have a lovely stroll and take a bit of a short-cut through to Museumsplein (15 minute stroll). Alternatively you can take the tram and save your legs!
A king size thin (3inches approximately) mattress placed over 2 single beds did not work for me as you end up rolling into the middle which does not make for a good nights sleep. Personally I would prefer 2 separate mattresses on top of the beds and the ability to still push the beds together.
I would not hesitate to stay here again if the bed situation were different. For this reason I would not recommend to a couple who may desire a firm mattress or extra support due to back or neck issues.
Wilbert is a great host and most warm and welcoming.

"clean quiet and great"
this apartment is really great value for your money .
The communication before we arrived was very correct and fast . We Always got an answer on our question almost immediatly .
Wilbert , the owner , was also very flexibel on arrival and departure time .
On arrival we were welcomed by Wilbert himself , a real dutch gentleman .
He helped us with our luggage and made us feel at home straight away.
He made time to explain how everything worked in the apartment and were we couyld find shops and restaurants and gave us good tips .
He told us that whenever we had a question we should not hesitate to ask him .
He lives downstairs but he absolutly respects your privacy .
The apartment was exactly the way it looks on the pictures .
It was very clean , everything worked . Since it was january it was important that there was a good heating system and that was very good . Also fast internet .
The apartment was well equiped . It has everything you could possibly need .
Also very nice on arrival ( this is purely practical ) was the toiletpaper, the soaps , the washing powder for the dishwasher and washingmachine etc...
The bedroom is very quiet since it faces the garden. It has a nice balcony with chairs ( must be lovely in the summer )
The apartment is in a very interesting neighbourhood not far from the center and public transport is close by .
The checkout was also flexibel and when we asked Wilbert to call us a taxi to go to the station he offered to take us with his car .
We defenitly will be back .
