This is going to be an honest review of our stay at the Netherland in an Airbnb unit. We booked this location for 4... nights to celebrate our anniversary in the KC area. We selected this space based on some comments that it was remodeled and easy walk to the Westport area. We planned on spending a good amount of time in Westport so this seemed to be a great fit.We arrived Saturday afternoon to check in, parking was restricted to the streets or metered parking according to check in information. Meanwhile the reserved parking spots were never more than 70% full the entire time we stayed there. Do not drive a nice car to this area, I will elaborate more below.Check in to the space was a bit cumbersome but not horrible, the lobby area next to the bar has a constant stale beer / mildew smell. It appeared clean , but my nose told me otherwise.Room was accurately portrayed by pictures, but they did a great job of disguising how small the space was. Not a big deal we didn't travel to KC to stay in a room. Room was clean and furnished but also had a similar mildew smell in kitchen area. We bought a few glade plug ins to hide the smell while we were there, it did help a bit. Disappointing aspects to the room were that there is no sink in the bathroom. You used the same sink for all of your bathroom needs as well as dishes. Not ideal at all. The bathroom door is a sliding barn door. Good look, but poorly installed. With it closed there was still a good 2-3 inches of opening all the way around. Privacy while you use the restroom is non existent. The door would come off the hinge if you tried to close it completely. You really almost had to leave the door 1/4 open.The view was of the neighboring building. We could see that before booking and were aware.A note posted in the Kitchen said to check out the roof top bar and enjoy a drink when we mentioned we were staying at an Airbnb.We decided on checking it out our first evening, Saturday night after dinner in Westport. We arrived, were told to grab a seat and someone would be by to get a drink order in a moment. We sat there talking and looking over the menu and after ten minutes nobody had come by. All of the workers were at the bar huddled together. They took a group shot and dispersed but didn't check on us. We left after twenty minutes. Maybe drinks could be less expensive and sold more often there if you were not funding the staff to drink for free and serve people buzzed.Middle of the night was the craziest aspect of this unit. Our first night due to the bar crowd, had people out and about until around 2:30 am in between the buildings . We were on the 4th floor so it seemed like they were right outside the window. The rest of the night was filled with random sirens, helicopters, and gunfire. Expect to hear guns every night, sirens off and on. Tuesday morning we were woken up to a woman screaming in desperation below. We could not see her, but she was screaming and crying . Other people from the neighboring building were out as well.Recommending people walk around this area at night or to Westport is putting them in harms way. There is no reason to suggest this as an option. Sunday on the drive to brunch we witnessed a drug deal at 38th and Main (right next to the building). Two women blatantly in front of us made the exchange. The streets around the area have people walking around high on drugs out at all times of the day. It was sad to see much less be put right in the middle of the scenario like it was normal and OK.A lot of cars in the area seemed to have broken out windows. The parking lots were in need of repair and the fact that you were not allowed to park in a reserved space was ridiculous. Leave nothing visible in your car, and just pray that nothing happens to it at night.I would avoid this option for Airbnb. Not a great experience in the slightest. Not a safe area. I am sorry for being harsh but I do not want other people to have this experience.read more

I’ve lived in The Netherlands since November 2020. When I originally moved here from out of town I was sold on the... proximity to The Plaza and Westport, public transportation (yay street car!), the rooftop patio, and the private/reserved parking. However, after living here for over a year I can say that the only positives about this apartment are the large windows (killer view of The Plaza/Westport) and the actual apartment itself is very cute/updated and the perfect size for a single person (and my pup!).Other than that I must say that I’ve been extremely disappointed in my time here and these are the reasons why:Residents are only allowed to use the rooftop when The Canary (restaurant located in the lobby of the building) is closed; so basically Tuesdays all day or any day before 4pm, otherwise you must be a paying customer at Canary to use the rooftop. So basically don’t count on weekends with friends on your rooftop unless you want to make a reservation and pay for Canary food and drinks.Private/Reserved parking for $75/month is decent in this area since your best bet is street parking; however several of those days my parking spot was taken by someone else. The spots are marked “reserved” and there are signs that they will be towed, but it is (VERY) rarely enforced so I have to find parking elsewhere.The street car was something else that was pitched to me as a selling point to get around town and down to the River Market. However, they didn’t mention the construction noise starting at 7am every weekday until 2025 (!!) to get it completed…if you work from home, it’s a nice ambiance of beeping, jackhammering, and drilling for you all day long…The proximity to Plaza and Westport is AMAZING. Everything is within walking distance so that is a huge plus. Unfortunately, there are a TON of sirens all hours of the day since you’re so close to St. Luke’s Plaza and KU Med, so that is another thing to consider (the noise is excessive and it is fairly constant).The security is also a concern for me as there are Air BNB guests, visitors, Canary customers, etc coming/going throughout the main areas of the building. Our packages are left in the office that is accessible to all the aforementioned people and it is not monitored by cameras, so I have had a couple packages go missing, unfortunately. Another thing of note is the vandalism in the parking lot (i.e. windows being broken out) and theft in the building (i.e TVs from the gym area being stolen). We were told that management was going to get cameras for the parking lot and around the building after a few incidents, but I’m not sure if that has happened.I do not want to be a negative Nancy, but these are things I wish I had known before signing my lease here at The Netherland. Management staff are kind and approachable, but I don’t think they have a lot of options when it comes to fixing some of these issues.read more

I lived here and moved out on 10/31. I was told I would receive my security deposit within 30 days, however I still... have not. I have tried calling multiple times and tried reaching out through the website.read more

We stayed here short term for a vacation through Zencity/Airbnb (I assume the apartment runs the listings). We really... love it! The first time we had a bit of trouble getting inside because the call box wasn't accepting our code, but the Zencity staff took care of it and we had no other issues since. We didn't have a coffee maker in the apartment so I would recommend bringing one if that's important to you, and the shower/bed is not the best if you are plus size, but everything else is really nice. Beautiful view and very safe - you need your keypad for everything.There is no designated parking, but we always found a spot on the side street nearby and it wasn't a bad walk at all (granted we didn't usually stay out late so it may be harder later at night). I would definitely stay here again. The cheapest hotel I found was about the same price for just a room.read more

Hello! This is my genuine opinion and not something the apartment complex bribed me to do in exchange for a perk or... something. I'll be moving into the Netherland Apartments next month in May and I couldn't be more excited. This place was super easy to apply for and the staff was super helpful. I'd highly recommend working with Cheyenne, he's great. I'm looking forward to living here. This place is right in the heart of mid-town KC and is a 5 minute walk to the Westport area. How exciting? They prioritize safety, the doors remained locked at all times and people can only get in if they have a key fob. This place has a restaurant and a roof top bar on the first and eleventh floor. People who don't live there, only have access to the restaurant. I personally found comfort in this being a female. Also, once you become a part of the Netherland family you'll be added to a group chat to meet local people. This is also helpful because people post alerts happening in the neighborhood or homeless concerns. At this time I don't have anything negative to say about this place, but if I do, I'll be sure to write an updated review! Thanks!read more

The Netherland Apartments management is very involved and is genuinely concerned with the tenants happiness and follows... through diligently with any “issues”, ex. Parking, maintenance, etc. They have made it a pleasure living here, as if the amenities don’t make it amazing already!! The apartments are so nice, there is so much storage space and we especially love the rooftop area. Overall i am very pleased with the choice i made to live at The Netherland Apartments.read more

I moved in to The Netherland in August. I love my unit and how close I am to everything. The staff is courteous and go... above and beyond to make sure their residents are happy.The new restaurant and rooftop bar are going to be amazing when they’re done. Until then, Pizza Hub is across the street and they’ve got great gyros! I never hear my neighbors (which is so hard to come by in these old buildings). They really made this historic landmark come back to life. Definitely would recommend!read more

This complex is super clean and being remodeled to a new modern look. The staff is very helpful and made my apartment... search very easy! I wanted an apartment soon and the staff worked quickly and answered all questions I had promptly! I would very much suggest anyone interested in the Netherland Apartments to take a look yourself at the amazing complex and not to mention the amazing views!read more
