Garden is a huge bonus

Just wow! great aprt in the BEST location in Amsterdam! The hosts was great and the garden is a huge bonus! Differently will come back!

gemütlich im Hinterhof

Beschreibung der Ankunft war korrekt, da wir nicht so oft zuhause waren, kann ich nicht viel über die Nachbarn sagen. Am Abend konnten wir gemütlich im Hinterhof sitzen.

Great place, great location, great host

Great place, great location, great host extremely recommended. especially when they also provide 2 cycles too :)

Great apartment and great location

Great apartment and great location

Everything about our stay was perfect

Everything about our stay was perfectly communicated with Marijn from the point of booking through to our arrival. No issues whatsoever. The location is about as good as it gets if you visiting the city and want to be right in the action as it were. Access to the flat is easy and very secure. Facilities in the flat are exactly as the pictures show. This isn't a hotel so you're not getting a 5 star luxury fittings but it's clean and perfectly sufficient. Shower works perfectly which is always important to me at at least. Meeting with Marijn's son to check in and husband to check out was very friendly and they didn't rush us out in the morning either. If you're visiting Amsterdam then I'd definitely recommend this place!

I would definitely recommend!

Overall an excellent experience! The location is ideal, dead in the city centre and close to all the essentials. I would definitely recommend!

love to stay with you again

Thank you so much you were excellent hosts, we would love to stay with you again!!

Simple, clean, comfortable apartment. Host very kind. Flat is very close to Amsterdam most alive streets and at only 5 minutes from central train station. I would come back without any doubt.

Emplacement idéale

Emplacement idéale , terrasse au top!


El apartamento es realmente como se muestra en las fotos muy acogedor, amplio y completo para una estancia ideal. En el centro de la ciudad pero en una zona muy tranquila con acceso al transporte público para ir a cualquier parte y muy cerca para ir andando a las zonas o lugares turísticos. En resumen un alojamiento perfecto. De Marij y Sebastián, los anfitriones perfectos todo facilidades y disponibles para resolver cualquier cuestión o información. El patio estupendo que en verano será aún mejor y la compañía de las gallinas todo un hallazgo. Resumiendo una estancia perfecta.perfecto

Wunderbar und komfortabel

Marijn hat mich und meine Söhne sehr herzlich empfangen. Sie hat uns Tipps gegeben, wo wir essen gehen könnten. Das Frühstück in der "Winkelsbakkerij" war vorzüglich. Die Wohnung war sauber und für uns drei ausreichend groß. Außerdem liegt sie unschlagbar zentral und trotzdem super ruhig. Alles ist zu Fuß erreichbar. Ich kann Marijns Appartement nur weiter empfehlen.

Had a wonderful five days in this comfortable apartment in a great area.

A convenient lovely place located in the medieval heart of Amsterdam, a few minutes from the canals and museums etc. Made good use of the free bicycles, in fact we went everywhere by bike, just like to locals. And lovely helpful hosts.

What a wonderful stay!

We had a fantastic time in The Metropolitan! The place is perfect, central and we felt like at home. Sebastian and Marijn, fabulous hosts. Very helpful and really nice. If we went back to Amsterdan, sure we would choose to stay there again! Highly recommended!

Fantastic apartment, brilliant location!

Fantastic apartment, located just outside the main square. Plenty of shops etc near by too. Coffee machine included in the kitchenette along with a microwave and plates etc. The owners Sebastiaan and Marijn are very nice people too. We left an iPad in the apartment and they were more than happy to assist with returning this back to us. Would highly recommend this to any travellers who are wishing to explore Amsterdam.

Great Apartment and Great Location!

The location of this apartment can not be beat! It is perfect, literally minutes walk away from Dam Square and five minutes from Central Station. The Metropolitan is surrounded by everything you need but still down a quite little street ally which is peaceful and feels safe. We couldn't hear any noise from the main street during the night either. There are rows of shops seconds away and so many places to eat. It is a central location with all amenities you want around you, the Ann Frank Museum was only a 10 minute walk away and the Museum Quarter was only 15/20 minutes walk away. It was freezing when we arrived but the apartment was lovely and warn and the bed was so comfortable and big. The garden is lovely. The apartment has everything you need including a TV with English Channels and a DVD player. There are plenty of maps/leaflets in the apartment for you to look at and take with you. Marijn the host was welcoming and helpful. We will be defiantly staying here again when we next visit Amsterdam.

Quiet haven in a busy area.

I can't express my gratitude enough to say how much help and kindness both Marijin & Sabastiaan offered us. I lost all my credit cards, atm card, and drivers lic. before we checked into the apt. Not only did Sabastiaan help report my loss, made calls to help in english & dutch, but he also taught an old man how to use his I-phone. The apt. was private with its own court yard and the bed was terrific. plenty of hot water, a good shower, and a great coffee machine. Forgot to mention fresh flowers, and a small bottle of wine to welcome us. I would stay here again without a second thought.

Excellent-everything you need in a city centre apartment.

Clean, friendly and peaceful apartment in the heart of Amsterdam. Ideally it would have access to an oven/cooker but apartment has a microwave so no real problem. Thank you to Sebastiaan and Marijn.

Ideal location

The location of the Metropolitan Apartment is perfect for access by foot to central Amsterdam, the picturesque canals, fascinating Dutch architecture, restaurants, galleries and shops. The museum quarter is also just a short walk away. The studio is large, light, airy, quiet and very comfortable. Nice touches like fresh flowers and a bottle of wine made us feel very welcome. We slept completely soundly; a large and very comfortable bed and surprisingly no sound of the city. A small supermarket is conveniently just up the street and we brought breakfast back to eat in the studio and enjoyed popping back to rest our feet for tea in the garden. The owners (very helpful) kindly gave us use of their bicycles enabling some very enjoyable sight-seeing a little further afield. Central station is only 10 minutes walk away, convenient for access to the frequent trains linking the centre to the airport. We had a great experience.

Comfortable, relaxed home

Lovely feel to this apartment .it had a garden so that was a bonus and it is close to the centre. Owners left some nibbles and juice for us which was a lovely touch. The only negative was that there was no bath but had a lovely stay there.

“great location”

apartment perfect for a short stay, location great and plenty of space and a really comfortable bed. I would recommend it.

I wish I could give 6 stars

Absolutely fabulous B&B. I couldn't imagine staying in a hotel in the area after staying @ the Metropolitan. It has a great outdoor space, comfy interior, and awesome hosts. As others have said, your living the local life here. Hope to come again!

Superb Location

Very spacious open plan room with garden area, chickens in the yard but you do not hear them. Has everything you will need for a short stay and fabulous location, so central. Only negative is that shower room/toilet is a wet room and no wash hand basin so, after using toilet you have to wash your hands at kitchen sink.........not major but still a negative. Overall I would recommend this.

Great Hosts!! Great stay!

I stayed at the Metropolitan with two friends and was more than satisfied with the accommodations. I would gladly come back. Can't ask for a better location.

Can't wait to come back

I stayed here with my mother and sister for a long weekend. Although it's all one room there was plenty of space for all three of us. The location, well you could not ask for any better, very central and quiet at the same time. Nice garden that would be better enjoyed in summer months, with the chickens to keep you company :) fresh fruit and flowers were in the room upon arrival, such a lovely touch. Hard to give any negative but like someone said before, there is no sink the the toilet and you have to come through into the kitchen area to wash your hands, which has some drawbacks. Sebastian was lovely and helpful, sadly I never met his wife due to us arriving late. A lot of literature in the flat to help with your stay and sightseeing in Amsterdam. Overall a great place to stay.

Delightful Experience

My sister and I just spent 2 nights (wish it were longer!) at this charming studio. Marijn and her husband were helpful and friendly, even giving us fresh eggs for breakfast! The location is an amazingly quiet park-like setting, despite being in the center of the city, and the access is totally secure, which is a plus for a ground-floor apartment. We were grateful not to have to deal with the multiple flights of stairs so common in Amsterdam. You reach the property from a pedestrian thoroughfare, yet are only a block from trams and taxis. The kitchen has a coffee maker, electric teakettle, microwave, refrigerator, and electric egg cooker - everything you need to fix simple breakfasts and lunches. We can't wait to come back.

Location Location Location

We loved our stay here. We had our own courtyard (with chickens) most comfortable bed. Great apartment. Very friendly renters who live upstairs, and take amazing care of you. (One night it was suppose to get cold so,they left a note with a space heater. :-)

We spent 10 glorious nights here and would spend 10 more.Location Location Location

Exellent location

Me, my husband, my niece and my 4 years old daughter stayed here for 3 nights.

The location less than 10 mins walk for Amsterdam Centraal station and very peaceful.
My daughter loves the chicken and the cat very much and not forgetting the easter choc eggs. 
Marijn is very friendly. 
No bad comments at all. We really enjoyed our stay and we love Holland so much.

très agréable

Merci pour cette accueille très agréable, nous avons passer un excellent séjour. Même en plein centre ville le lieux est très calme. Le logement était très bien et propre à notre arrivé. Très bon séjour. Nous avons apreciés : La petite cour semi privative , La situation géographique, et l'accueil.

“Great Location and a quiet end to a busy day”

The rental unit was very nice for two people or a small family. The kitchen is basic with microwave, bar fridge and coffee maker (Nespresso - great coffee). The bed was comfortable and the room spacious for the two of us. A few things to note:

a) there is no sink in the washroom so you need to wash your hands in the kitchen sink
b) you have to mop the floor in the bathroom after / during showering as the water covers the room
c) the web says it sleeps 4 - yes it would with the pull out futon - but there is no separation. The 'full' bed is in the main room - it is one large room. So, only recommend for a small family (or very close friends)
d) Location - EXCELLENT
e) the patio would be nice in warmer weather I am sure - we did not use it.
f) owners were nice for the two/three times we met them and they offered their bicycles for use and gave us suggestions and a great deal of info on what to see and do

“Great B&B, large quiet room, in the heart of Amsterdam!”

+ Location in the heart of Amsterdam

+ Large room, with very comfortable kingsizedouble bed and optional bed(s) for kids
+ Small kitchen with fridge and coffeemachine
+ Table with chairs and TV screen
+ Friendly owners!

“Another great stay at this great apartment”

This is our second visit to this apartment in the heart of Amsterdam. It has everything you could need and lots of extras too. The best things are the enormous comfy bed, Nespresso machine with free coffees, the location (2 minutes walk from the Dam and canal ring, yet incredibly quiet and peaceful), courtyard garden and the lovely hosts, Marijn and Sebastiaan, who are very welcoming and helpful.

The apartment has its own private entrance and, for our winter visit, was cosy and warm, but in summer you can open all the doors to the little garden. The kitchenette is fine for preparing light meals and snacks and there are supermarkets at the end of the street. There are lots of TV channels, DVDs, free wi-fi and plenty of tourist info leaflets. Sebastiaan is always on hand to help or answer any questions and will also lend you bikes if you fancy cycling.

The Metropolitan truly is a home from home and we greatly enjoyed our latest trip to the city.

Nice apartment in a great location

Great location for exploring Amsterdam. Very close to Amsterdam Central Station. - nice apartment - had an nespresso machine that made excellent coffee.

Very Chic apartment and excellent hosts

My daughter and her boyfriend took our place as we were unable to go. First time she has visited and must comment on how safe and comfortable she felt. The hosts were an exceptional of people, who looked after my daughter. She used their bikes, vouchers for the Museums and they took her on their boat. 

She is still talking about her trip now wants to work in Amsterdam when she leaves the United Kingdom! 
The hosts were perfect, communication with me before the trip set my mind at complete rest.
We can't wait to rebook this apartment for us this time !
Thank you

Best Amsterdam location, lots of extras

We loved staying at the Metropolitan Bed & breakfast! Our group included myself, my husband and our 12-year-old granddaughter. We loved the location, in a quiet street minutes from everything. My granddaughter loved the chickens and the cat. We loved the kitchen set up where we would make coffee or tea anytime. We all loved the restful garden. 

It is one of the nicest places we have stayed and our hosts were wonderfully helpful.

peaceful place


been here for 6 days. 2 min. walk from dam square in a very beautiful שמג quiet street. 
very nice couple and a great hospitality. 
use there knowledge on amsterdam to save time and use there bikes if u dont want to walk for miles.

thnkspeaceful place

Clean, comfortable and right in the centre of Amsterdam.

What a welcome apartment after a very long flight! Our hosts were very accommodating, allowing us to leave our luggage even though we arrived very early in the morning and were extremely helpful with tips on where to eat and what to see. The apartment was clean and comfortable and being just off Dam Square, very central. An easy walk to where ever you need to go. We would highly recommend this apartment.

Great Location!

Loved this little place. The room was very spacious with your own little garden which you share with a few hens.

The bed was huge and very comfortable. o and yes the best coffee!
The location was excellent, in the centre of everything. The apartment was just 5 minutes walk from Central Station.
There were plenty of travel guides and leaflets in the room and the owners were very helpful! Communication was prior to our arrival was great!
I would defiantly be back here!

Great location, friendly hosts

The Metropolitan in Amsterdam is conveniently located, literally within walking distance to everywhere, as well as being very comfortable, affordable. This B&B is unique and full of character--complete with the use of a wonderful outdoor courtyard stocked with some of the most sociable animals that you could ever wish to encounter. The innkeepers, Marijn and Sebastiaan are gracious and friendly hosts who make everyone feel welcome to their beautiful, laid back and international city. They also have an App that you can download through the Digital Concierge that is very helpful in finding restaurants, bars, markets and other attractions that Amsterdam has to offer. Very convenient and something that I would highly recommend that you do--unless, of course, you prefer to use the generous tourist brochures that they keep in the B&B or speak with the interesting proprietors themselves!

Great Place in Every Way

We stayed in Amsterdam for a week at the Metropolitan. First of all, our hosts were very nice and very helpful. The place was clean, the beds were comfortable. You can't beat the location. Train station is just minutes away. The outdoor patio was also wonderful. We had great weather while we were there and took advantage of it. This is my 3rd trip to Amsterdam and I would definitely stay here again.

The Answer

After thirty years of staying in every possible kind of accommodation in amsterdam, this is the most friendly, clean, well-appointed, central, quiet, intelligently-conceived solution imaginable.

Very Central

Nice, spacious apartment, just a few minutes from both Dam square and the main station. Very clean, great bed and useful coffee machine! Good selection of literature for reference and efficient TV if you are too tired to walk any more! Lovely hosts and the advantage of a garden was appreciated especially with the chickens!

Very Central

Great location

We recommend this room, clean, comfy and ideally located for sightseeing in amsterdam, we will definitely be visiting again.

"Simply lovely!"

Perfectly placed in the very centre of amsterdam! 5 min walk from Central station, but quite as in the countryside. You can reach all the attractions on foot or with the bike (free rental!) Owners are so polite and available for any inquiry! In the kitchen you will find all necessary to heat little dinner or breakfast, and coffee and tea. The garden is nice, with chickens strolling around... just a little note, maybe it will be better for the owners to clen the garden after the strolling of the chickens.. but...I would like to come back, it is perfect!

Simply Perfect

We stayed one week at the Metropolitan. It was exactly as described on internet... and as what could be read about this location ! 

Very well placed : everything (attractions, museums, shopping, train station) is close to The Metropolitan... The location is situated in a very quiet street. It has a lovely garden. The apartement is very nice too : well furnished. the beds are very confortable, there is far enough space for three our four persons. The owners Marijn and Sebastiaan are very nice too. even the weather was nice the time we stayed at amsterdam ! Simply perfect !Simply Pefect!

Charming, spacious and light-filled

Left on 11/13/2013 for a stay in September 2013

This is a lovely studio which is clean, soothing and comfortable. The description and photos are an accurate depiction, with one omission – there isn’t a bathroom sink. It is convenient to the Dam and many attractions, a bounty of restaurants and shops and the many canals.
The owners, Marijin and Sebastian, are friendly, helpful and offer a mini library of sight-seeing guides to make your stay in amsterdam enjoyable. Oh, the Keurig with selection of coffees was a wonderful and convenient way to start the day. I definitely recommend this delightful apartment.

Fabulous apartment central Amsterdam.

We loved our stay at the Metroplitan garden apartment. Only a few minutes walk from central station so perfect for visiting all attractions, yet so quiet and peaceful. Marijn and Sebastiaan have provided some lovely homely touches and are very welcoming. You won't believe how big and comfy the bed is and now their chickens have arrived you can have fresh eggs for breakfast. It was our first visit to the beautiful city of Amsterdam and we can't wait to return. Staying at the Metropolitan was the icing on the cake so don't hesitate to book this fantastic apartment.

Home away form Home

We simply LOVE this apartment, it was home away from home!

What we paid at Doubletree Hilton CS for a tiny room (stayed there for 2 nights and was suck), we got an apartment here! We have kitchenette, a living room and best of all a Nespresso machine!

Awesome stay, warm owners and friendly neighborhood! Not far from CS (walking distance else can catch a tram near by) and stone throw to many places of interest. In short, you are in the middle of everything, from attraction to food, yet you can enjoy the quietness. We LOVE the bed...only complaint is we still couldn't figure out how to operate room heating in Europe :P (you see, I'm from somewhere which heating is not required)

Forget about staying in chain hotels, you are just a number you have great host and ya, the chickens at the back yard....

I can't recommend this to my friends enough, a MUST stay when in Amsterdam! Well, we definitely be back for our next trip to Amsterdam!

Have a HAPPY stay ya!HomaHom

What a find

Sitting in the peace of the courtyard garden of the studio flat at 29 Sint Nicolaasstraat, it is difficult to believe that you are in the centre of Amsterdam, within walking distance of just about everywhere! Marijn and Sebastiaan grew up in the city, and could not be more congenial hosts, friendly and witty, and all of course in fluent English. They made our stay in the beautiful city of Amsterdam a joy, and after just a few days it felt like we were leaving old friends. We could not recommend the Metropolitan more highly. We were so lucky to have found such a great place to stay.

Thank you Marijn and Sebastiaan.

Wheelchair accesable

perfect hosts, perfect located also if you are in a wheelchair. I can highly recommend the Metropolitan at anytime! thanks!

Very nice time

We had a very nice time. There is a nice garden which was good with the kids. The room was very clean.

Nice garden

This apartment in the center of Amsterdam is quiet,comfortable and clean. We had a really good time staying there,especially in the patio which is very nice.

“Ideal location in Amsterdam”

We stayed here for 2 nights, My two sisters and I. Lovely support from Sebastiaan. We arrived early and were able to leave luggage at the unit.

Breakfast was really great each morning. Lovely courtyard and accommodation great for 3 people.
Ideal location to access all of Amsterdam, easy walking distance to most areas of interest.

The perfect place in Amsterdam

The perfect place to stay for any trip to Amsterdam! We spent 5 nights at the Metropolitan B&B, and couldn't be more pleased with our accommodations. Marijn is a very warm and pleasant woman. She went out of her way to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. The location can't be beat. You are in the center of the city and most attractions are accessible by a short walk. The room is very comfortable and spacious. The private back patio and garden is a great place to unwind after a long day of sight seeing. We are looking forward to staying here again on our next trip to Amsterdam! :)




A beautiful oasis in Amsterdam

My wife and I were very fortunate to stay at the Metropolitan during the recent coronation festivities. With the Dam just a few hundred meters away and the celebrations and activities taking place all around us, we could 'take a dip' in the experience whenever we'd like, then retreat to the quiet, spacious room and garden at the Metropolitan. It was perfect.

Our hosts Sebastiaan and Marijn are native amsterdamers and very knowledgeable about everything the city has to offer. We will definitely return to the Metropolitan again and again, and will refer our friends and families.

James and D

A wonderful experience

Marijn was very communicative and helpful and the B&B; is in a good location. It's on the ground floor, which makes it easy for heavy baggage. It was quiet, very spacious and lovely for our stay. Overall the stay was wonderful, Marijn and Sebastian were wonderful hosts and we appreciated Marijn quick responses. We will definitely choose to stay here again on our return trip to amsterdam!

Comfort in Amsterdam

The B & B Metropolitan is a perfect place to visit amsterdam, very well located close from every thing in a very quit street. Marijn & Sebasitan are very nice persons, they did every thing to make our stay enjoyable. We apreciated the espresso machine, the naturel light from the windows and the lovely garden where we took our meals.

We recommand this place without hesitation.

Lovely apartment

we found the accomodation warm, inviting and spacious with lovely natural light. It had good easy wifi and is located in a very convenient position, close to attractions and 5 mins walk from the train station. It was well equipped with a simple but high quality kitchenette. The beds were very, very comfortable and the apartment is aesthetically pleasing. The hosts were very friendly and helpful without being at all intruisive. we would highly recommend this accomodation and if returning to Amsterdam would stay there again for sure.

Quiet, peaceful and beautiful

The Metropolitan B&B is located in the center of Amsterdam, you are in the heart of the city with its shops, museums, tourists, etc. Though, the place is very quiet and peaceful. The hosts are really friendly and kind, they are open and care for you to have a nice time in Amsterdam. Thank you Marijn and Sebastian for the lovely place, your kindness and the wonderful breakfast! :-) We had a GREAT TIME in Amsterdam!

Great base to enjoy Amsterdam

A well-located ground floor flat in a quiet, charming backstreet nestled in the heart of the old town. A great base if you want to get around on foot, it is really convenient for the Dam square and the canals. The flat itself is compact, secure and tidy with mega-comfy beds and a handy kitchenette. The bathroom / wet room could be redeveloped slightly but was decent enough. We only met the owners briefly but they were funny, friendly and accommodating.

Nice for a family

We were 3 adults and 1 baby and we spent 2 nights in this lovely apartment, managed by a very kind host. Despite we arrived earlier than expected the room was cleaned up properly. Everything needed and more is there (the italian espresso too ;-) ). The location is very close to the center in a quite street, far from the noisy places. We enjoyed our time!

Amazing stay in Amsterdam

Awesome place to stay in Amsterdam. Perfect location directly in the city center. You can walk to everything and the metro is right around the corner. The room is excellent. Clean with a private entrance. Really comfortable bed and any amenities you need. The couple that owns the house was great. They gave us good recommendations and were a pleasure to talk to. We will definitely be back...hopefully to skate on the canals in winter!

FANTASTIC peaceful location

Fabulous location and you can come and go as you please. The apartment is great - spacious and relaxing. Perfect place to wind down after a day (or night) in a very vibrant city. Loved the courtyard and privacy. We're DEFINITELY staying here again - better than any hotel anywhere!! Check out the website - what you see is genuinely what you get (actually, we got even more than expected). Also, the bed was VERY comfortable.

A real reccomandation

We enjoyed our stay at The Metropolitan: a cozy B & B in the center of Amsterdam, only steps away from Dam Square. It's a nice, quiet place in the middle of this bustling metropolis. A comfortable bed, nice breakfast, a lot of freedom and Marijn and Sebastian are very welcoming and flexible. Super are the bikes that you can borrow. As In this way we can explore the city in short time. In short, highly recommended!

Exellent will be going back

We stayed in metropolitan for 5 nights at the beginning of September.

The location was fantastic couldn't be more central. The hosts were lovely who helped us with places to eat and things to do and took us on a boat ride.
The room itself is the best part large comfy bed tv and coffee maker. Also a fridge so you can buy food from the shops and make your own lunch to eat in your garden! Excellent place couldn't recommend it enough already looking into going back!

S & R

Best ever

Would just like people to know of this little gem right in the centre of Amsterdam yet could be a world away once in the apartment.

Living & bed room large enough to wander around and not feel trapped,
Instant access into garden area great for just relaxing 

Check out there website

Perfect location and hosts

The location is perfect. From the station a short walk and after dropping your bag, all the fun of Amsterdam within reach. Tired and met back "home" come into your fine room with a comfortable bed. You hear nothing of the city, so rest is guaranteed. At the time that you want, do the owners make a delicious breakfast. All fresh and all too much to eat. We had a wonderful weekend! Thanks!

The perfect Metropolitan

Great location, as it was a 5-7 minute walk from the train, and from there a short walk to Jordan which had some great restaurants. We used the bikes to head down to the museums for the full Amsterdam experience. It was great to have a spacious place AND a courtyard! We loved the nespresso/magicmix espresso maker so much we came home and bought one. It was such a treat to make endless espresso to work through the jet lag. Sebastian was kind, helpful and easy going. What more could you want?

Recommended stay

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Metropolitan. It was right in the city centre and close to everything. Having bikes available for us to use made everything even more convenient. The apartment was gorgeous, spacious and very quiet, and we were made to feel very welcome. Recommended!!

Beautiful, silent and clean

We had a great 3 day stay at Marijn and Sebastiaan´s place. They are lovely hosts and gave us lots of tips where to go. The house is beautiful, silent and clean. The location is perfect, just 5 minutes walk to Central Station. The room is confortable, with WIFI. and a kitchen for small meals and coffee/tea, with fridge and microwave oven. It was a pitty we could only stay there for three days. Would definitely recommend this place to friends going to Amsterdam!

What a treat

Marijn and her Husband were by far excellent hosts. Their room is in a prime location. I for one, think I got a great deal by staying there. If you get the privilege of staying there, you'll find out what a treat it is.

What a find!

The Metropolitan is in an excellent location near Dam Square but so quiet it is hard to believe you are in the heart of Amsterdam. The apartment is spacious, well equipped, clean and has a great courtyard. The owners Sebastiaan and Marijn couldn't be more helpful. I would highly recommend the Metropolitan and hope to stay again in the near future.


Great room in extremely central location, very friendly hosts and very clean with a nice bed. Comes with a garden and free bikes, bottle of wine and espresso. The area has plenty of great bars and shops and museums are within walking distance. Can't imagine a more comfortable way to stay in Amsterdam.

A perfect escape

An absolute gem of a find with fantastic hosts who welcomed us like old friends. The apartment is spacious, spotlessly clean and well cared for. There were fresh flowers in the room, coffee, tea, and chocolates along with lots of nice cushions, reading material, DVD's, maps, and city information. The hosts were also kind enough to give us their phone number for any further advice or assistance we required. Sebastiaan organised a trip around the canals for us which was great fun in a little boat! The Metropolitan is a very private, peaceful place with a lovely garden perfect for escaping from the crowds. The location is perfect just 5 minutes walk from central station and the red light area, and 10 minutes from Jordan. It has really comfy beds, a powerful hot shower and great central heating. The outside wall is glass and lets in lots of natural light, it can open up completely if desired. I did originally book the room for my sister and I but then requested to add my other sister at a later date. This was not a problem, an extra mattress was provided and placed on top of the bed sized sofa which was absolutely fine for sleeping. The apartment is located on the ground floor of the hosts home in a residential street. It is not in the style of a traditional hotel/B&B in that there is only the one room for rent. This to me was a bonus as there was absolutely no noise from other tourists. I really enjoyed staying here and hope to return with my husband and small son before the end of the year.

Lluis i Cesca

Not only in the heart of Amsterdam: ideal space for a couple, very confortable, nice natural light, good hiting in winter, enough equipement, and warm hosts. HIGHLY RECCOMENDED!

In the heart of Amsterdam

Central location, warm hosts and comfortable cosy stay - that's what this place has to offer! Will be back soon :)
