My Husband and I stayed here in October for his 40th birthday. We wanted the freedom of an apartment for our stay and after a bit of research decided on the Pearl apartment.
The location was fantastic, easy to find from Centraal station, just a 10 minute walk down Singel canal. It was just round the corner from Dam square and a convenient supermarket. As mentioned the stairs were steep but that's Amsterdam for you.
The lovely young man who met us showed us round the apartment but was very unobtrusive even though he lives in the building, the apartment was spotlessly clean and has every amenity you could possibly need, very well equipped kitchen, lovely bathroom and a lovely comfy bed in the loft with great linens...we slept very well. The small touches like free coffee pods and milk for the espresso machine and dishwasher tablets etc were much appreciated and make all the difference.
The view from the large windows was great, we almost felt like locals . Free Wi-Fi was most welcome and very reliable and we also had use of the washing machine and dryer if needed.
It wasn't the cheapest place to stay but well worth every penny for convenience, location, privacy and home from home feel. We both were pleased with our stay and couldn't recommend the apartments highly enoughMore
