The Space

The flat is located in Amsterdam, 15 mins tram ride to Dam Square. Metro and Tram stop is 3 mins walking distance away. We always rather biking to downtown and it also takes 15-20 mins. We have 2 extra bikes and you can use them but you will have the responsibility in case they are stolen, losing the key of the lock etc.

The room is our extra room and we use it as a study room/guest room. There is a IKEA Fulton couch in the room and it is a queen size, a heater, shelves, a table. Towels and bed-linen are included. There is a wireless internet which you can use.

You can use our kitchen but we don't provide food and please keep in mind that we do not serve breakfast! The price doesn't include breakfast. You can use the kitchen to prepare food for yourself. And we prefer you to clean after you use anything. We have a dishwasher and you can put your dishes in.

Please bring your own shower stuff, we don't provide shampoos etc.

We don't smoke and if you smoke, we'd ask you to smoke on the balcony. If your purpose of visiting is smoking weed, chilling at home; this is not a place for you.
We'd kindly ask you to take your shoes out in the house. We really try to keep the house clean.
We care about the environment and do our best to not waste energy. We'd like if you could respect this by putting the heater off when you are leaving the room, putting the lights off etc.
As you see we do not charge your for cleaning fee but naturally we expect you to leave the room as you found it and taking the garbage out.

We work and study and this allows us to be flexible with check in-check out times. We prefer check outs before 12 am when we are usually around. This may be easily arranged, we are flexible and will do our best to help you.

Feel free to send us a message if you have any questions.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • When we arrived, we found Allie somewhat unenthusiastic, but we assumed it was due to bad experiences with guests in the past. We didn't talk much for the two nights we stayed there which was a little unusual but fine. However, after we left we received an aggressive and accusatory AirBnB message saying that we broke her shower head. She also suggested that we left without telling her in order to escape blame. The shower head was not broken when we left and we told her this and asked for clarification or pictures of the damage. However, there was never any further communication on her part. We were very sad that she would assume the worst of us and feel that perhaps it reflected her general attitude as an AirBnB host.

    Overall we would not recommend staying with Allie; there are many friendlier AirBnB hosts who seem to enjoy the community and enjoy sharing their homes.

  • We had a great stay at John and Allie's. They are genuinely nice people who are eager to give recommendations of what go see and do around Amsterdam. As they note the room itself is on the cosy side but it's very clean and the bed comfortable. Would definitely recommend these hosts.

  • 15 mins from city center by the awesome bikes that were provided for our stay... My partner and I really loved the bikes. John and Allie are both chill people; Allie recommended to us where to eat and what there's to do at night (clubs, jazz bars, etc) the room was smaller than imagined, but we were out early in the mornings and back late at night, so it wasn't that big of a deal. Shower and toilet are kept really clean. all in all, it was a comfortable stay!

  • Très confortable, superbe appartement. Nous n'avons toutefois pas eu l'occasion de mieux connaître nos hôtes, et eu très peu d'interractions avec eux. Puisque ce fut notre première expérience airbnb, nous n'étions pas certains du protocole de cohabitation. Sinon, l'appartement est ultra propre, les bikes très fonctionnels.

  • The room is really cozy - it is small and simple but all necessary things are here (bed, table, chair, towels) and the room is very clean.

    The main drawback for us was low connection and slow internet in the room - but John and Allie resolved this issue.
    Also we did not find any supermarkets around - but maybe that is our fault.

    Price-to-quality ratio seems to be very attractive for Amsterdam and I would recommend John and Allie's room.

  • My daughter and a friend of hers spent Easter holidays at John and Allie's house and their staying wax perfect. John and Allie have been really nice and helpful hosts and they could also use their bikes which was great. To get to their house from the airport is very simple and close and Allie's information was absolutely clear. I would recommend their place to anyone!

  • Staying at their place was very lovely! We had a great time. It's close to the City Center and everything was reachable by bike. The colorful and cute apartment was very neat and clean and just as shown in the photo. They are extremely friendly people and were very helpfull with any kind of needed information or questions. They also gave the best recommendations for restaurants! It was a pleasant stay overall!

  • My sister and I had a wonderful time staying with Allie and John while visiting Amsterdam. Their apartment was lovely (the pictures didn’t do it justice!) and was right next to a very peaceful canal in a quiet neighbourhood. The room was a perfect size for a City break and we felt completely at home and were able to use kitchen facilities anytime. The commute into the centre of town was very quick and easy. Allie was so helpful (John was out for most of our stay) and she gave us a few good recommendations for lunch spots and made us feel right at home. We loved our stay with Allie and John and would return to their place for any future visits. We highly recommend their place!

  • The apartment is super cute and really clean and welcoming. The bed was comfy, there were lots of fresh towels, and the balcony was lovely with nice seating. We loved having the bikes and there is both a tram stop and a metro stop very close to the building. Our only issue was having to check out at 830am on a weekday (when they left for work) but it wasn't that bad.
