Amterdam - spring 2010

We spent 12 nights in this apartment with our almost 3 year old daughter. The location of the apartment is excellent! A few blocks from the central train station, lovely residential neighbourhood...everything was walkable. We ate in some really great local restaurants ...we spent lots of time at the Captein cafe particularly. Views from the apartment are lovely as there is water everywhere and there is lots of light. We loved watching the boats and swans. The apartment is really spacious, full of character and well appointed. The shower was great as the shower head is adjustable for our toddler. We would highly recommend the apartment.

However, it is on a very busy/noisy street. Nighttime traffic noise is significant. Ear plugs are definitely necessary. It does help to close the doors to the living room and kitchen. There is no elevator and the apartment is 3 levels above the ground. We didn't mind as there was space to leave our umbrella stroller on the first landing. The washing machine didn't work but the owner, who is very responsive and friendly, lives next door and allowed us to use the washer in one of the other apartments. If you are staying longer term, there is an additional cleaning fee if you want the apartment cleaned in the interval. Our previous experience on VRBO has been that weekly cleaning is usually included.

Holiday with mice.

The apartment is exactly as it appears in photos. A very good location, great view.
It could have been excellent if the maintenance weren´t poor (we found another user's dirty sock under a bed), if the fridge door weren´t blocked up with ice, if almost every window weren´t impossible to open, if some lights weren´t out of order... and the peak of the iceberg was the MICE.
After a terrible night (when we had been trying to avoid the mice), we were relocated on the B & B next door, with a lot of scepticism from Mrs. Martina from the staff.
We didn´t ask for an economic compensation, just for a save place to spend the night. We also made them ensure us to avoid these inconvenience from then on.
We got to kill a mouse, and we have plenty of evidence (photos).
When we got home after our trip, we sent an e-mail to the owner (Tuhami Bourdim) asking for an apology, but we have never received an answer from him.
You better not choose a destination like that: there are mice!!


Español:

El apartamento es tal y como aparece en las fotos. Bien situado y con buenas vistas.
Hubiera sido excelente si la manutención no fuera mediocre (encontramos un calcetín sucio de un antiguo huésped debajo de una cama), si la puerta de la nevera no estuviera bloqueada con hielo, si casi todas las ventanas no fueran imposibles de abrir, si no estuvieran estropeadas algunas lámparas... y la gota que colmó el vaso fueron los RATONES.
Tras una noche terrible (en la que estuvimos intentando evitar a los ratones), fuimos realojados en el B & B de al lado, con mucho escepticismo por parte de Martina del staff.
No pedimos una compensación económica, sólo un lugar seguro donde pasar la noche. También les hicimos asegurarnos que evitarían estos inconvenientes a partir de ese momento.
Conseguimos matar uno de los ratones, y tenemos pruebas suficientes de ello (fotos).
Cuando llegamos a casa después de nuestro viaje, le mandamos un e-mail al propietario (Tuhami Bourdim), exigiéndole una disculpa, pero nunca hemos recibido respuesta.
No elijan un destino como este:hay ratones!
Owner's Response: Hello Juan, thank your for your response. Unfortunately you where confronted with a mouse. To be honest you are the first who has ever seen a mouse in the apartment. However, we are very sorry about that. We keep the apartments extremely clean and since your complain we have hired a company checking the building every month. On the other hand we must say that in an old city like Amsterdam with so many thousands of centuries-old-houses you can expect that on a bad day you will cross path with some of these little friends. Sorry again Juan and we can only say that we do our very best to keep it clean and mice free. Best regards, Rutger.

Muy acogedor, estuvimos en este alojamiento 9 días en agosto coindiciendo con el SAIL 2010, la situación es magnífica para visitar la ciudad sin necesidad de utilizar otro medio de transporte, muy cerquita de la Central Station y también muy cerca del lugar donde se celebraba también el evento del SAIL, recomendable, el único problema es que es un poco ruidoso.
