"Great Location to Central Station."
Great Location to Central Station. This gives great access to the amazing tram service and bus service to rest of the city. The 2 bedroom apartment is massive for this small city. Great kitchen and dining area. We reserved this place for a group of 6. Unfortunately we had to give this a 4/5 rating because the sofa bed attachment is broken so when 2 […] people were sleeping on it, the 2 parts of the bed would separate and was causing discomfort, and annoyance trying to move it back together.

"Nice room but too hard to get key"
Nice apartment, a little far out of tourist area. Description is misleading as there is no onsite desk. You must cross town at additional expense during limited hours to get key from rental office. Building construction outside bedroom window was not disclosed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great way to see Amsterdam"
We were looking for a comfortable space to spend 4 or 5 days. We weren't disappointed. The apartment had one bedroom with two single beds and the large couch opened to a double bed which itself was quite comfortable. The location was very good. We were a 15 min walk to Dam Square. Shopping district was a bit of a far walk, but I would recommend renting […] bicycles and seeing Amsterdam on two wheels. Only issue was that we couldn't get the TV to work at all. We didn't feel it was important enough to contact the hotel as you have to call a central number to have someone address the problem. Generally, we had everything we could have needed; stove, fridge, large bathroom, laundry machine in the room...etc. We would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed in a spacious apt 10 minutes by foot from Central station . It was on a road Facing Nemo. It was quiet in the evenings and away from the noise that you can get around The Damrak & The Red Light district.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good apartments but not such good value for money"
Fairly good location which was convenient for the Pacha Festival we were attending but fairly far from the centre and Rembrandts square were the bars, clubs etc that we wanted to go to are. We only took this apartment as a replacement for the one we had booked, but Expedia made a mistake with our booking and 3 weeks prior to departure left us "homeless", […] so this is were we ended up. The apts are clean and tidy but don't expect any daily service such as cleaning or towels etc. We were in apartment F which had 2 bedrooms with twin beds but the sloping roofs didn't allow any room for sitting up in bed, similar to sleeping in a tent. Also there was only one wardrobe for two rooms and only 6 hangers. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place, ok location"
Not too far but not bang in the centre of Amsterdam, depends what you are there for I suppose. I went for my 21st with 10 lads 4 of us stayed at PH apartments, we thought we had the short straw when it came to apartments and distance from all the buisiness, redlight, cafés etc... About 10-20 minutes walk away depending where we were going, also 10 minutes […] from central station. Nice walk though so didn't really mind it at all! When we compared hotels we easily had the best maybe a little dearer than the rest but for what we got in return more than satisfied us. Comfy beds, spacious, great living area, great eating area, great cooking area, great bathroom.. With a heated floor, I loved this! I would definitely recommend this apartment and I would stay again.. Actually looking at flights to return some time soon! Hope you all enjoy the place as much as I did!!!!!!

"PH Apartments, Amsterdam"
Check-in at airport is handy. However, when we entered the apartment building our apartment, Batavia Harbour, was not listed on the information board on the wall. It then took about 20 mins on the phone to the company for someone to work out that if we turned around from the information board then the door marked B was ours!Genuine Expedia guest review
"PH Apartments in Amsterdam"
The apartments are located near to the Maritime Museum and approx 15-20 minutes' walk from the Central station. Our apartment was on the first floor, fairly quiet, looking to the rear of other buildings. The apartment itself is spacious with high ceilings, large windows, so light, and there is warm air heating. Kitchenette (part of an open plan sitting/ […] dining room) is fairly well equipped and the staff provided a frying pan when requested. It was great to have washing up liquid, brushes etc supplied. The curtains were not good, very hard to close and to get decent coverage across the high windows. Bedroom has two single beds with bedside tables and a wardrobe. Bathroom is a wet room with a full decent shower and a bath. Toilet is separate. This apartment suited us well, family of four. The children shared the sofa bed. They did not like the heating fan coming on and off through the night. A good supermarket is located about 10 minutes' walk away, open every day. We would recommend this apartment if looking for self-catering within a reasonable budget. Internet access was intermittent, in need of a boost. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for a leisure trip, question on business"
The appartment was large and comfortable, very tastefully decorated for the standard, higher than expected. The only drawbacks were that there was no wardrobe (a small creaky one in the hallway, really not suitable for 4 people), and we only got 1 bathtowel per person for the entire stay (with no washer/dryer in the appartment and no hangers in the […] bathroom, this was a bit icky). I would stay there again for a holiday, but not for a business trip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
umständlich - Reception mit Schlüsselabgabe gute 25min entfernt von Appartment, Appartment hat roch nach altem Essen, es war sehr laut - direkt an der Strasse, schlechte WlanverbindungGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Um excelente apartamento completo para a família. Eu gosto muito de dispor de bastante espaço para as crianças e uma cozinha completa também é praticamente imprescindível nas minhas viagens. Só achei um absurdo ter que se dirigir ao escritório central para pegar as chaves. Isso não havia ficado bem claro na contratação. Para quem chega de avião é excelente […] pois eles dispõe de um stand no aeroporto, mas eu cheguei de trem. Tudo muito limpo, bem distribuído. Só o colchão que é horrível, mole demais você afunda e acorda cheio de dor nas costas. Dormi no sofá cama. :) O depósito caução de 300 euros também não tinha sido informado na contratação, ficamos muito chateados. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Basement apartment in PH apartments"
I rented the basement apartment (not shown in the pictures) and it is of a very different standard than the others shown in the pictures. It was quite humid with a smell of mold. The furniture and beds are clean and while the kitchen is clean it is quite worn. Kindly note that the location is noisy, but that was known to me.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Leiligheten var helt ok. Veldig varmt, kun 2 små vifter og ingen ac! Når vi sjekket ut så fikk vi beskjed om å legge fra oss nøklene i leiligheten. (Smekklås på døra) så jeg la 3 sett med nøkler samlet på stuebordet så begge de to vennene jeg var der sammen med så det. Mottar så en Mail etter jeg har kommet hjem om at de bare finner et sett med nøkler […] og at jeg kommer til å bli trekt 65 euro pr sett. Ringer de opp å spør og de påstår at det er deres policy og at det ikke er noe de får gjort noe med. Men de skulle sjekke å ringe meg tilbake. Hører ikke noe på 4 dager så ringer jeg opp igjen å de påstår fortsatt det samme. Å innen de 4 dagene har de trekt pengene alt. Det er kun personale og vaskepersonalet som har nøkler dit så kan ikke være noen andre som kommer inn. Forstå det de som kan. Kommer ikke til å booke dette selskapet igjen.

"The place I will never visit again!"
1. The check-in place is not near to the apartment and it spent us extra time and money to find out the check-in point; 2. The internet service is not stable. We stayed there for 5 days but the internet didn't work for 3 days; 3. The alarm was out of batteries for the second and third days so we wake up at 7:30 am by the beep beep sound; 4. We wake […] up at 6:00am on the last day as there were groups checking out and they hit the doors loudly; 5. The staff didn't keep the promise that made on the first day during check-in so we needed to change our planned itinerary immediately and it affected our mood most. 6. The linens were not changed during our stay and everyone can only have 1 towel and 1 set of bed linens through the days. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

""Der manglede bare en ostehøvl""
Det var en sjov gammel lejlighed med masser af plads.

En dejlig, stor lejlighed tæt på bykernen og hovedbanegården (gåafstand uden bagage, kan man vel kalde det) . Flot og stilfuld, moderne indretning og meget høj rengøringsstandard. Lidt slidt - sofaen var plettet og gulvtæppet hullet, men der var på ingen måde ulækkert eller "gammelt". Der var to sengepladser i et fint soveværelse, de to andre var på […] sovesofa i stuen, hvor der var meget trafikstøj - men det var i det mindste en jævn, konstant støj fra en stor, bred gade. Flot køkken og badeværelse. Og så var der opvaskemaskine :-) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Noisy and Expensive"
08/24/14 Loubear4 Oxford, United Kingdom
The apartment is fairly spacious for three friends and fairly clean.The beds and sofa-bed were very comfortable. The location was good for being near the train and tram stations and the old part of Amsterdam but it's a long walk to the museum and vondelpark area - if you stay here I would advise using the nearby tram to get to this part of Amsterdam. We had a basement room and I agree with previous comments about dim lighting but the worst thing for me was the noise from the apartments above and the slamming of the very loud heavy front door waking me up in the night. You have to pay 300E as a damage deposit which they threaten to use if even the drains get blocked which annoyed me a bit. You can arrange to pick up the key from the airport rather than trying to find the main office which was convenient for us and went smoothly. You just leave the key in the room when you leave so no worries about trying to take it anywhere at the end of your stay. Overall it's fine as a base if you're not spending much time there, but noisy and over-priced. We paid 500E for two nights just because everywhere else was booked up.
"Seemed like a good deal at the time...."
08/11/14 JBC604 Vancouver, BC
The PH apartments were disappointing. We were given a studio in the basement that did not at all reflect any of the pictures shown. The windows opened up to an alleyway and were right at the pavement level. To have any kind of airflow we had to be in the room since opening the windows would provide access to the room for anyone in the alleyway. There was only one of the 3 lightbulbs working in the light fixture - this was a problem, in order to dress you had to have all the blackout blinds closed, but the lighting was so poor you couldn't see much. The wifi and the TV did not work when we initially arrived. We soon figured that the antenna for the TV had to be in the windowsill, not on the table as it was when we arrived. All these items were relatively minor, but when the next morning the coffee maker did not work, I called to the office at the moment that they opened. I let them know that the wifi was not working, I requested some light bulbs and told them that the coffee maker was not working. I was assured that these things would be fixed during the day and given an alternative Wifi connection. We left and went on some tours, returning at 10pm...nothing had been changed. I called and was able to reach someone, they came and exchanged a coffee maker with another suite, but nothing else. The location was not bad, but Amsterdam is so small. I know that there were some better and less expensive places to stay. The closest access to a real food store is a 15 minute walk away. I agree with others that the Booking.com reviews are inflated and here is why...I attempted to give the same review as I did here and they rejected it due to it being against their policy (profanity, personal details, etc...? this makes me suspicious and hesitant to book a non-chain room through them again.
"Practical Location BUT many serious issues!!"
08/08/14 Mrs_E143 Windsor, United Kingdom
I was extremely disappointed with PH apartments and I very much regret choosing this accommodation. I wish I looked at Trip Advisor instead of relying on the Booking.com reviews which on closer inspection on my return appear inflated. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 1st Floor apartment. The professional pictures do not reflect it's current condition as it has been run into the ground. The best aspects were the practical location (approx 15 mins walk from Centraal Station) free WiFi and the ability to check in at the airport. Unfortunately it went down hill from there... First impressions were oh dear what I have done? Stench of onions cooking, dirty and dilapidated entrance hall and staircase. Although the flat was spacious and reasonably clean, the temperature of the living area made it unfit for purpose. When we arrived around 20:00 on the 4th August it was 32 C in the flat even though it was cool outside?! This made no sense to us and we thought someone must have accidentally left the heat on. To our dismay we soon discovered that only a tiny window in the lounge/diner/kitchen could be opened as all others were sealed shut! The fan provided (broken knob) did little more than move the hot stuffy air around the place. Even after a cool evening (and keeping the curtains closed in the day) the lounge stayed around 26 C. As a result we basically only used the lounge/diner for a quick breakfast in the morning. Just as well as the TV reception was fuzzy and the batteries were missing from the remote controls. Again not acceptable at the price paid. The ceiling to our bedroom was covered in brown damp patches and was mouldy in the corner. Also, the intercom did not work which left my daughter stranded in the rain for over 30 minutes until another resident let her in. Looking at previous reviews this had been brought to management's attention in the past and still has not been resolved. Forget lying in without earplugs as the flats are on a busy main road and noisy motorbikes in adjacent courtyard (or alley?) start coming and going EARLY! I would NEVER stay at PH apartments again and can't recommend them either. It is a such shame as the size was good and the location practical for sightseeing. At some point it might have been light and airy feeling (albeit cheap & cheerful) but it was originally done SO cheaply and has been SO poorly maintained that it is now grim and dilapidated. I strongly suggest looking at other options.

This facility offers a lot: 1. Good location 2. Large accommodation 3. Quiet residential area 4. Home like environment But it also has several drawbacks: 1. Keys come with the room. I shouldn't have to go cross town or pay to get them. 2. Poor lighting -very dim rooms 3. No towel racks except in tub 4. No drawers for storage of clothes just a modest wardrobe in hallway
"Great base to explore Amsterdam"
11/11/13 Megan B London, United Kingdom
Stayed here recently with a group of girls. Impressed with the apartment - about 10 minutes walk from Amsterdam Central station. Good location for everything. Apartment was clean, comfy and well equipped. Tea and coffee was provided and although we didnt use them there were also other cooking facilities. Only downside was not being warned of the steep deposit but understand why this is necessary - just would have liked some warning. Highly recommend.
"Disappointed! The worst hotel! I will never go there!"
09/30/13 ANNIE F HK
Our final destination is in Amsterdam. Before one day, we received the email from PH apartment to inform us the check in place. It is only two options for picking up the keys were either at the main office and airport. It made them very inconvenient. Actually, we get there by eurorail. Then we only stay all luggage in the street and waiting my friends to main office to pick up key for two hours. I can’t image that. We assigned on the ground floor. The apartment is very dirty and seem no occupy for long long times. The linen, window & curtain are very dusty. Lighting is dark and the internet service is not stable & always out of services. No housekeeping will be provided throughout 4 days. Remind to bring tissue & towel when you check in. The service of staff is very poor, impolite, unhelpful, No late checkout services, the price is not reasonable and very noisy. I can’t find one point to be recommended to my friend. I will bad list that apartment.
"Big apartment but many disappointments"
05/07/13 AMacklin Sheffield, United Kingdom
Group of 5 girls on a long weekend in Amsterdam Booked this apartment as it seemed good value and the photos looked amazing Options given for picking up the keys were either at the main office, at the apartment and at the airport We chose at the airport and I emailed them directly to confirm that we would be collecting the keys there. When we arrived the keys weren't there so we arranged to meet a rep at the apartment. They couldn't get there til 2:30 so we had to hang around. The rep at the hotel marked on a map where the apartment was located. We made our way to the apartment and discovered that it was not marked correctly on the map and was actually much further out of town. The rep did not arrive until 2:45pm and then did not know a lot about the apartment or facilities. We were so disappointed that the lift was not working as I'd read the previous reviews that said the lift hadn't worked and those were left months ago! I asked the rep if they were going to sort out the lift and he said yes but 4 days later it still didn't work. The apartment is very large, light and airy which is great but there were no mirrors in the apartment apart from one in the bathroom (not great for 5 women getting ready) The apartment was tired looking and in need of a paint. Really disappointed
"Nice location but bad apartment..."
02/28/13 fferraz Limeira/SP
Pros: Location is perfect, just 3 blocks from Amsterdam Centraal Station, walking distance from various nice restaurants, right in front to one of the main channels of the city. It's a very spacious apartment with a nice view, well equipped with stove, oven, microwave, fridge, coffee machine, dishwasher, etc... Cons: This is not for those who want extreme comfort and support... The biggest problem in my opinion is the fact that it's got only ONE shower! For an apartment that holds up to 6 people, I think it should have at least 2 showers. The apartment is also very run down, lots of painting job to be done, wooden floor extremely deteriorated, old furniture, etc etc... Another problem we experienced was that the electric door downstairs wasn't opening up with the button on the inter phone. So, as we had only one key, every time one of us went out without the key, someone would have to go downstairs to open the main building door for the other. I called their offices to let them know about the problem but they didn't fix it. The lift also stopped working 2 days before we left, so we had to go 3 floors down carrying all our luggage. Stressing... I also let them know about it but also nothing was done. I wouldn't go back to this apartment.
Very expensive for what it is offering ,no towels and clean sheets for a week?!and no laundry?for almost 500€per night?And dirt all over the building Too much for me.The stairs to our apartment were so narrow and dangerous that caring on and off the luggages became a high risk mission and there was no information about it.

Excelente localização, espaçoso e com uma ótima estrutura... Fica há uma quadra do mercado e relativamente próximo a estação central. Um bom ponto de referência é que fica quase de frente para o Museu de ciências Nemo. Tem tudo que se precisa para a estada.
