“Lovely studio flat in real Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

We stayed here for the weekend at the end of February.

The room has it's own door that opens up onto a (safe) backstreet, so you enter the bedroom straight from the street. The room is a good size, it's clean and the bed is really comfortable. (I think it's a memory foam mattress). There's a kettle and a fridge in the room, and plates and cutlery.

The bathroom is nice and modern, however it's a little cold as it doesn't have a radiator. It has a door that you have to kind of fold to close, but it could do with a handle on the inside so it closes properly. But it's still very nice!

The area is quite residential however it's still central to everything. Dam Square is about 10 mins away. There's a supermarket about 5 mins away near the Anne Frank House, and a traditional Dutch restaurant to eat at called Bij Ons.that I must recommend! It's more like living in Amsterdam than just visiting. We loved it!

So overall, I would definitely come back to this place next time I visit Amsterdam!

Have just returned from a winter trip in Amsterdam in up to minus 10. The location was beautiful, in a great location which made accessing all the sights easy particularly in the difficult weather. My partner and I added the breakfast which saved us time and money, a brilliant way to start the morning and the hosts were a lovely couple and the place was very clean.

The reason I am not giving Pension De Laurier an excellent rating is simple - the bed! It is very noisy, every time you sit it creaks so loudly and one half of the bed dips lower than the other which made sleeping quite uncomfortable. I think it is time they invested in a new ikea number to deal with this problem.

If they do this with that then I would advise all to stay here and I would gladly return. This is a perfect base for a trip in Amsterdam!

If you are looking for a good priced apartment in a quiet but well located area this is the place for you. The apartment has a good sized shower, free internet, kettle ,fridge and a tv that picks up bbc channels and premiership football! The owner met us on arrival and was very welcoming. The apartment opens right onto a quiet neighbourhood street in the Jordaan, just 25metres from a canal. Ann Frank house is less than 10 minutes walk away, centraal station is 15/20 minutes away and the Prinzengracht about 100 metres away. There are lots of restaurants and bars nearby with plenty of types of cuisine to choose from.
An excellent choice at a good price.

We stayed for 4 nights in november. This place is great. Simple and confortable room with free internet (and a computer for you to use!), good bathroom plus a small refrigerator and a small table and utensils (great for snacks!). Since it has an independent entrance straight to the street at ground level, you get the feeling you have your own little temporary home in amsterdam. The neighborhood is great: close to the major tourist spots and night outs like the dam or leidsplein (maybe 1 or 2 tram stops; or walkable even, as we did on one ocasion) but also very quiet and residential. Its also very close (right across the canal) to the 9streets shopping area, full of cool shops and restaurants.
