Very good!

  • 4 of 5

Jeroen was extremely helpful and welcoming. The apartment isn't too far from the centre (about 35 mins walking) but the tram service made things super easy to get around. Breakfast food was left in the fridge for us to help ourselves (although 2 of the days there wasn't any milk) and then we spent the days out wandering. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this place to stay! :)

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review Julie! The tourist centre is best to reach by tram yes, 6 minutes only! The apartment itself is IN the official center, just in a more quiet part.

Small bedroom but enough space for 2. House is pretty noisy but host is very friendly

  • 4 of 5

Overall our stay was fine. The bedroom is small but enough space for two people. The twin beds are very comfy which is a plus. The toilet and shower are located right outside the bedroom and shared with other guests. The host was very friendly and check in was easy. Our main complaint was the noise. There was another family staying above us and it was very loud when they came home late at night and early in the morning. Because the shared bathroom is right outside the bedroom privacy is limited. The neighborhood was nice and walkable to many attractions.

Absolutely recommend this property,great position,great host,loved our stay in Amsterdam.

  • 5 of 5

Only great things to say about Jeroen,his communication was impeccable,he contacted us just prior and gave exact details of how to get to his place,he greeted us warmly and sat down with us explaining everything we needed to know about the area and how to get around.

The room was clean and very comfortable,(the beds were exceptionally comfortable).

The area was close to the centre,a couple of tram stops away,or walk,maybe 30 min to centre,but the tram was great,got to see and travel around all of Amsterdam.

The room itself was quiet at night and dark,we slept really well.

All in all I would highly recommend Jeroen and his accomadation,he did a great job and would definitely stay again if Australia wasn't so far away.

The location was excellent!

  • 4 of 5

This location was great for easy access to the city. Parking was a bit of a pain, but that's the trade off for a location so close to downtown.
