Bottom Line

Nova Apartments Amsterdam is a mid-range serviced-apartment-style property, offering 10 spacious and modern apartments and studios with well-equipped kitchens and spotless bathrooms. The location in the picturesque Oud Zuid neighborhood is ideal for leisure travelers exploring Amsterdam, within walking distance of the Museum Quarter and well-connected to public transportation. All apartments and studios have living areas, fully equipped kitchens, flat-screen TVs, and some have balconies. This is a “self-service” property with no reception or on-site staff. Guests communicate with staff via an intercom and cameras, which some guests find too impersonal. There is also no breakfast service here. Travelers may also want to check out the nearby Heemskerk Suites also offering apartments with full kitchens and a few extras like free drinks and snacks on arrival, and free on-site laundry facilities.

Nova Apartments Amsterdam

Scene

A residential building with no reception or common areas

Nova Apartments Amsterdam occupies a historic four-story building dating back to the 19th century, with a charming brick facade and windows decorated with original stained glass. The large double entrance doors open to a foyer and a staircase and elevator. There is no reception area or even a reception desk: Guests are requested to communicate with staff via an intercom, and comings and goings are monitored by cameras. Once the guests' identity has been confirmed, the automatic door is opened, and they will find a welcome letter and key in the apartment. The aim is to make guests feel like they're staying in their own residential apartment, since the property does not have a hotel set up. Some guests enjoy this independent “self service” arrangement, while others find it too impersonal. This is a popular place to stay for couples and families visiting Amsterdam as leisure travelers.

Rooms

Modern, comfortable apartments and studios with fully equipped kitchens

The self-contained units at Nova Apartments Amsterdam vary in size. Studios are designed to accommodate a maximum of two people, while the apartments are suitable for up to two adults and two children. Apartments are spacious and bright, thanks to the large floor-to-ceiling windows and high ceilings. Throughout decor is chic and modern, with bright red accent walls, stylish lamps, brown carpeting, and gray upholstered convertible sofas. Kitchens are amazingly well-equipped with cooking ranges with range hoods, combination microwaves/ovens, refrigerators, and even dishwashers, along with pots, pans, utensils, crockery, and cutlery. Units are also equipped with electric kettles and separate coffeemakers. Apartments also have two flat-screen TVs: one in the bedroom and another in the living area, which also features a CD player. Studios have the same amenities, but the bedrooms, seating and dining areas are merged into one space, and there's no second TV. Spotless white bathrooms are not very roomy, and are fitted with shower/tub combos and have free toiletries.

Some of the apartments have balconies, but the studios are located in the basement and have small windows that let in little natural light. Also, the elevator does not descend to the basement, making it a challenge to negotiate the narrow spiral staircase with luggage. Be aware that units don't have air-conditioning.
