Or use UBER

My advice: From Schiphol airport there is a direct airport bus (number 397) to stop Leidseplein, this is NOT the end stop (5 times per hour). The bus ride takes about 30 minutes. 24/7 Buy a return ticket sale in bus 11,25 Euro (children 4 till 12 years daycard 4,00 Euro) only by card, no cash. From Leidseplein it's a three minutes walk to the apartment.


From Schiphol airport 6 trains per hour are going to the Amsterdam Central Station. From Central Station trams# 2, 11, or 12 go directly to the Leidseplein. The tram takes about 12 minutes to Leidseplein.


By train

From Central Station take tram 2 or 11 or 12 directly to Leidseplein (7th stop). Ticket sale in the tram. One hour ticket 3,25 euro. The tram takes about 12 minutes to get to the Leidseplein. From there it is a 3 minutes walk to the apartment.


By car

There are several car parks nearby. But those are all quite pricey: € 40-55 per 24 hours. The nearest car park a few minutes walk away is "Parking De Hoofdstad" on the Prinsengracht 540.

From 19:00-07:00 hrs the street of the apartment is closed for cars. During this time the closest by you can get is on the corner of the Prinsengracht and the Leidsekruisstraat. From there it is a minute walk to the apartment.

A good alternative are the different P + R facilities (including the Arena Stadium, the Olympic Stadium and Zeeburg). Costs often only EUR 1 - 8 per day (max 4 days).

Bike

The bike is the fastest way of transport in Amsterdam. Around the apartment are several bike rental companies. For example Het Zwarte Fietsen Plan, just around the corner or McBike.
