Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We found Leon's place to be excellent. It was in such amazing conditions and my family definitely loved it.

It was really easy to find it and the fact that is on a first floor is really appreciated.

Leon made sure there were maps and other small details that made you feel welcomed, as an example there is a list with phone numbers for hospitals, doctors, police and after being in a few places across Europe I can say it's not the norm.

We had an issue with the wifi and Leon had it solved within the hour while we went to explore the city.

Pay Attention!

  • 1 of 5

Are you planning to spend some days in Amsterdam? Are you a group of 6 or more people?

Pay attention and do not accept the second choice offers you.

We didn’t have a great adventure also in view of the price we paid for our apartment. It was not properly cleaned, we were six and there were 5 dishes and 3 forks as well as 4 chairs. The toilets were poor and during the night the kitchen was the playground of red naked slugs.. which is not very nice to find out.

Anyway the flat is situated in an area well serviced by tram towards the city center.

However Leon has been very kind of us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response, our policy is that the apartment must be inspected prior to check in and payment by our guests. If something is not according to your wish let us know and we will do our best to meet your requirements. You checked in and very thing must have been according to your wishes otherwise you should not have paid. The house is situated at the ground floor and has a garden, don't be scared if some insects come in. It is a pity that you come up with your review 6 months after your stay and want to be anonymous. We take complaints very serious and like to find a solution for them. There are enough beds, chairs, plates and other utilties. You are the first person to complain about it. Despite your review we wish you all the best and be free to speak out if something doesnot suite you. We kindly request our future guests to do so immediately and not six months after your stay. We want to do our best to make your stay according to your wishes.

Very disappointed with this apartment. We arrived in Amsterdam thinking the apartment would be the one in the pictures. Turns out it was another one, and was really substandard. Leon was very nice, very prompt, but it's clear there was a "bait and switch" involved once we got settled. We decided not to complain because we were only there for four days, had lots planned and didn't want to hassle with asking for a refund and finding a hotel over New Year's Weekend. The apartment was dingy, not especially clean, didn't have top sheets on beds, had leftover food from an earlier renter in the fridge, dishes were in the dish drainer and not put away, ashtray on balcony had old cigarettes in it, none of the furniture in the pictures was in the apartment (because it wasn't the same place as advertised), the front (street) door didn't lock, etc. Really disappointing to pay top dollar and get swindled. You would think there would an honest explanation that the apartment advertised was unavailable for some reason and be offered a steep discount in exchange....but that didn't happen. Felt like we were swindled. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

Owner's Response: If the apartment was that bad, why there was not asked for a discount or some form of compensation. You stayed there for the full time. There is no swindle you pay for what you get by us. The payment is made in cash after you have approved the apartment. It is too easy by our opinion to settle for something less if you are not happy with it. We have been in business for many years and we try to solve problems from guests as soon as possible. Making complaints about things you don't like doesnot solve anything, speaking them out and looking for perspective does. Sorry for your bad experience but you should have said something.
