A studio apartment is being offered for rent for €1100 a month in Amsterdam on the condition that the tenant does not cook and no more than two people are in the flat at the same time.
The 35 square meter flat is located in the city’s Jordaan district and was spotted by RTL news, which attempted to track down the landlord to find out more about the ban on cooking.
The English language description of the flat states it has a private bathroom and private kitchen. ‘The kitchen is fully equipped, except for a cooking plate. Cooking is explicitely [sic] not allowed in this apartment due to regulations,’ the advert said. Nevertheless, the photographs clearly show a hob.
Estate agent Stone Capital has promised to update RTL on why the landlord has banned cooking.
The shortage of housing in the Dutch capital has led to other extreme examples. In April, a studio apartment on Amsterdam’s desirable Prinsengracht, measuring just 15 square metres, was sold for over €150,000.
