The best host, apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

Marielle was very welcoming and kind. She helped us with everything, she even got us special gifts. Check-in and checkout was very easy and the instructions to get there also, you can easily get to the airport in half an hour.

The neighborhood is really cool and hip, out of the touristic mess but you can still easily walk to the central station, all the museums, red light district and all.

Very close to the Vondelpark which is a big plus and close to 2 major super markets and good restaurants.

The apartment was very clean, spacious and we got plenty of light getting in which was very pleasant. Marielle also helped us renting bikes cheaper from a friend of hers.

Overall that was the best experience I've ever had with any home booking platforms.

Awesome, quite and very quaint!

  • 5 of 5

The booking was very easy and Marielle kept in contact with us for our arrival and sent directions for us to easily get to the apartment from the airport. The apartment was on the 4th floor at the top of the usual Amsterdam staircase and lots of steps…but truly part of the Amsterdam experience! The accommodations were very clean with comfortable beds, tea and coffee, plenty of natural lighting and a very safe and quiet neighborhood. While there was no kitchen we were able to enjoy fresh coffee and pastries from nearby markets and enjoyed many neighboring restaurants. We walked everywhere to museums and major attractions and enjoyed the wonderful scenery and canals. We would definitely stay with Alex and Marielle again and highly recommend this wonderful apartment.

Great Location, Great owner

  • 5 of 5

This little apartment is in a great spot in Amsterdam, to get around by foot, bus or tram. There are many Bus and Tram stops near by plus its very close to where the Airport bus 197 last stop is. The owner is very nice and helpful and has a bunch of stuff printed and written out to help you during your stay in Amsterdam. As noted there is very steep winding steps (pack light), but this seems typical with Amsterdam's architecture. The apartment is very cozy with everything you'd need.

The apartment was exactly what we expected and wanted, so we didn't mind the steep stairs, and the location was good. It was clean and pleasant, and the owner was very easy to work with.

wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time after negotiating the stairs with the bags we found the apartment

To be all we needed for our stay in Amsterdam It is so convenient to all site because two

trams going different directions are one block away

The apartment had nice breezes going thru the windows on both sides so it was cool but i guess it could get hot with no wind
