could have been better
The apartment was well situated. Further than that the apartment was dirty. The kettle couldn't be used as it was rusty. The facilities weren't very good, and the basics weren't provided.
Nice family but communication needs to be better.
We missed our bus coming into the Netherlands so we arrived to the apartment later than planned. I emailed Fernand with our updates. When we arrived, no answer on door. It turns out fernand was in france but his partner knew i was coming. She was working but their children were there and wouldnt answer the door (older children including a 16 year old). I understand that, but they knew i was arriving and could've left the key someplace as their apartment is directly next door. At midnight, I could no longer wait and found a hotel nearby. I was traveling alone with children and it started raining. Fernand was not answering his phone or email. He later said his phone was broken. The next day, I tried again and his partner showed me up to the apartment. Warning, steep stairs! She was very pleasant but fernand told her there were only 3 of us. There was no hand soap in the bathroom and the towels i paid extra for didn't arrive until the next day (that's day 3. 2 nights after my scheduled check in day). The towels and pillows are worse than horrible. The pillows feel like the cotton is shredding inside them. We were given 3 towels..for 6 people. No instructions on how to work the heater, but fernand took my call and walked me through it. It's in the middle of the room and too close to the futon bed when It's being slept on. Dangerous. Fernand offered me a refund for the first night but i haven't seen it yet or heard back from him. I really liked the Zandaam area and this apartment would be great if the linens were nicer (and I'm not picky believe me) and there was a better system in place for arriving guests. I wish this nice family the best and hope they make these improvements as i think their apartment would be successful for them.
Affordable, great location, and accommodating host!
Studio is small but perfect for a couple. Well-stocked though no bath towels. Close to grocery, shopping, and train station. Very warm little heater. We had a very cozy stay!
My pleasure, come back when you want !!!!
A great place to explore the Netherlands in the beautiful city of Zaandam.
The apartment is located in a quiet area on a cozy street. Be sure to include the owner's house number. Master Fernand maintained contact with us by e-mail. We arrived at the appointed time at Zaandam, but no one met us. In addition, the letter from the site does not indicate the number of the house. We waited a long time and turned to the local people for help. In just two hours we found the right house. In general, one-room apartment is very good. There are two or three beds. The kitchen has an electric stove, microwave oven, coffee maker, two electric kettles. The apartment has a shower and toilet. There were no towels and soap. But the apartment is located next to the railway station, which is very convenient for traveling around the country. We advise travelers to come.
Studio comodo e in ottima posizione
Siamo stati molto bene nello studio di Fernand:Zaandam è davvero molto carina!!
Ottima sistemazione per coppie,confortevole e a pochi passi dalla stazione per raggiungere Amsterdam in 10 minuti.
Un saluto al titolare Fernand,persona davvero molto gentile.
Grazie, Carissimo Davide, sarete sempre benvenuti da noi, è stato un vero piacer ospitarvi.
Un amichevole saluto.
Une studio avec tout le nécessaire, lumineux, une "terrasse", une salle de bain propre et moderne, nous n'avons manqué de rien!
Le seul (petit) hic était la poussière qui était tout de même très présente.
Nous sommes très heureux d'avoir pu passer de si belles vacances dans un loft si agréable. Merci!
Ps: Pour quatre amis c'était parfait, pour deux couples par contre, je pense que l'intimité manquerait.
Tout comme pour les insomniaques: pendant que les autres dorment, pas de possibilité de lire ou quoique ce soit sans les déranger! À prévoir.
