The luxurious appartment is on the ground floor and has a big garden. It has 1 bedroom with a double bed, but it is also possible to sleep on the couch (it's really comfy!). The shower is quite amazing, it's like you ended up in stormy rain, but warm. The kitchen is fully equipped, and has everything you need (oven, microwave, blender, coffeemachine, kettle etc.).
There is wifi.
Westerpark is a nice and quiet area near city centre and the Jordaan.
This big green area with a theater, a cinema, an exhibition space and an events stage, bears the proud name of Culture Park Western Gas Factory (Cultuurpark Westergasfabriek). What originally was a small 19th century neighborhood park, has been united with the vast area of the defunct municipal gas installations.
The municipal large building divides two parts of the park – old one and new - that of the former gas factory. It is not much of the park yet, more a vast space with an art house cinema (Het Ketelhuis) two good cafés full of young people, many offices of starting up designers and fashion designers. At the back of Westergasfabriek there is a long rectangular pool for kids, perfect on a warm day.
The feel: while the old Westerpark feels like a regular small park with a few bronze sculptures and lots of green, the newly added Westergasfabriek is more of an experimental suburbia. Young public and an avant-garde atmosphere. Certainly interesting, when you have a particular event in mind.
How to get to my house:
walking - from the Dam square along the main shopping street to the West (left from the square if you stand with your back to the Palace) which will turn and change names, but eventually will live you to a small square called Harlemmerplein. Cross the bridge behind the square and you will see van Hallstraat on your left and van Beuningenstraat is a sidestreet of that.
by tram – line 10, exit on a stop Van Hallstraat. Walk to the right and you will find van Beuningenstraat on your left side.
by bus - from Central Station Bus 21, exit on Van Beuningenplein. Cross the road to van Beuningenstraat.
I live in Amsterdam and I love to entertain myself in the city: food, dancing, walking, shopping, hang with friends. Love travel, nature and sports: snowboarding, running, diving.
