Liked: nice option for group of four friends, get authentic amsterdam feeling instead of staying in typical hostel bunks. close to train station and generally most places. smoking allowed and plenty of utilities in the apartment already on arrival. if your lucky you might also get a nice welcome gift ;)

Disliked: windy stairs to get up to the apartment. that is all.. and its not a big deal.

Liked: The owners were fantastic and very helpful. The accommodation was clean and modern and the location was brilliant - 5 minutes walk to most places, 15 minutes walk to the museums (that was the furthest).

Disliked: The price was a bit steep, but there were only 2 of us staying there and it can sleep 4 - would reccomend it for groups of 3 or 4.

Liked: GREAT Location. Close to the square, shopping, bike rental, train station, canals, etc. Cool place, we had our own apartment with small fridge, stove, oven, etc. This helped reduce the costs of staying in Amsterdam. The sleeping arrangements are as follows: 2 fold-down couches downstairs, 2 single beds upstairs. The couches weren't the best but we slept fine all the same.

Disliked: Our only issue was that we had a small resident mouse that would come out and munch on our bread at night. Overall, he was plenty quiet and didn't eat too much so that was cool. We call him Charlie. We would totally stay here again though, it's hard to beat this setup.

Liked: What could be better than to have your own apartment in Adam? Right in the middle of the action, everything is sooo close and easy to reach. Lina is such a lovely person, knows her way around and helps out with everything. The apartment has EVERYTHING you could possibly wish to have. So after a hard day : ) its nice to come "home" to the own couch. The Thai restaurant next door is good but our favourit was the "Masala" house number 54 down the road, real good.
