Eindhoven is not one of the first cities that will come to mind if you want to visit the Netherlands, maybe because it doesn't have the classic charm of Amsterdam or Utrecht or maybe because the only reason you have heard of it is because of its football team. There are though plenty of reasons to visit Eindhoven and if you decide to do so there is a place that will make your stay in the city unforgettable! De Eindhovenaar!


Looking at the map of the city, one can see that De Eindhovenaar is located right in the center of Eindhoven. This practically means you can go anywhere in the city without having to walk for more than 15 minutes. The imposing Cathedral of Eindhoven, Sint Catharinakerk, is right next to De Eindhovenaar, the main square,  Van Abbemuseum and Philips Museum are located just 400 meters away, while the railway station, Philips Stadion and the DAF museum are located just one kilometer away. 

The excellent location of De Eindhovenaar also implies a stunning view of the Cathedral, which you can almost touch from your window!

First impressions

The first thing that impressed me in De Eindhovenaar is its exceptional, modern style, which also describes the entire city of Eindhoven. You can see this before you even enter the apartments, observing the building and the entrance, which reminds something between a shop window and a exhibition of modern art! 

The first place to see, entering our apartment after climbing a few stairs (these cute, narrow, typical Dutch stairs), is the kitchen. A large, modern and fully equipped kitchen. A kitchen with the most beautiful view across the city!

The apartments

De Eindhovenaar consists of 7 fully-equipped apartments, which are ideal for someone who travels to Eindhoven for a few days or even for those who want to spend a longer time there. Each apartment has its own name and its own special decoration while their size varies from 38 to 65sqm. 

We stayed at the "Frits", the rooftop penthouse, which, apart from incredible views and a brand new kitchen, for which I have already spoken to you, has two bedrooms (one with a single and one with a double bed), dining room, seating area, huge windows and a private balcony. 

In case that you will find in De Eindhovenaar, your dream home, as it happened also to me, you may not be able to stay there forever but you can get a piece of it back with you! What dp I mean? All the objects of De Eindhovenaar are for sale, so if you liked a painting, a chair or even the sofa, you can buy them!


The central idea behind De Eindhovenaar is to make the tenants feel like staying at their own home. It does not have a reception; however, the owner contacted us several times to give us information about both the apartment and the city. As soon as we entered the apartment we also found a map with the city's major attractions and a list of the best restaurants & cafes. Breakfast is not provided, but you can prepare your own breakfast in the fully equipped kitchen, where you will find excellent quality coffee and tea, or try Meneer De Boer's excellent breakfast, across the street.
