Great apartment!
Henk was very friendly and the apartment was perfect. It's on a busy square but there's a solid door to close off the bedroom which makes it nice and dark and quite. Apartment includes everything I'd need - small refrigerator, coffee machine, and a great amount of space. They have printed out some recommendations for restaurants in the area (there are a lot) and there's a grocery store just across the square. All in all, great stay!
