Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, the roof terrace is however not always part of the deal as it's only reachable through my private bedroom ;-) Yet enjoying the sun is very possible as there is a small park 80 meters away, including a petting zoo ;-) Greetz, -Jeroen

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Jeroen was an excellent host, and gave us lots of great tips on fun things to do around the city. His apartment was located close to the city center, was very comfortable, with a full fridge and fresh fruit for us to eat, and the wifi was quick as well. I highly recommend him and the flat, it was a great overall experience!

Great Place, excellent host.

  • 5 of 5

Jeroen is a fantastic host - made us feel welcome and chatted with us about the neighbourhood and recommendations (there were probably many great places for dinner nearby, but the Spaghetteria was great and De Hallen looked like there was lots of options as well). The same goes for his helper Tony. Would definitely consider if/when back in Amsterdam.
