My friend's temporary apartment: "Stay in an Anti-Squat" Amsterdam Hotel Tip by steedappeal

Squatters beware!

Find a friend who is an Anti-Squatter: someone who pays the landlord a nominal rent to prevent a squatter from seizing valuable, private property. I stayed with one of my Dutch teachers in a fabulous duplex near the Leidseplein. Fantastic light and sky which is a hallmark of Amsterdam weather.

P.S. the only downside is that the Landlord can discharge the Anti-Squatter at the shortest of notie. Enjoy it while it lasts!!

Unique Qualities: Free and great location

Theme: Other
