Nice cozy room at spacious and light top floor apartment, very centrally located!
The apartment has a really cool look, and great vibe!
What else?: WIFI, heating, kitchen with everything you need, bathroom with shower, washing machine, flatscreen TV, cool chesterfield couches, balcony, BBQ, guitar, books...
The perfect place to relax after a day exploring beautiful Amsterdam!
Your room is located on the 4th floor; The shared apartment with a nice living, kitchen, toilet&shower and balcony+BBQ (Sunshine till it sets!!) is located on the 3th floor.
Vondelpark (The Central Park of Amsterdam), Leidseplein (Party/Entertainment Area) and Museumplein (Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum, Nightwatch of Rembrandt) are just 10 minutes walking and when you take the tram or rent a bike it's even faster to get to the nice spots!
De area itself, Oud-West (Old West) is central, cool and upcoming. Ten Kate street market just around the corner! go there for the best freshly made sandwiches, humus, fruits or typical dutch herring ;)! Furthermore, just around the corner there are many hip bars and great restaurants were you can taste dishes from all over the world (Indonesian, Chinese, Indian, Greek, Italian, Turkish, Moroccan, and of course Dutch).
Furthermore, the tram stop is on the street corner. Really good tram connections to every place in Amsterdam. But the location is so central that you can just walk everywhere :)
I hope to see you soon in my cool, cozy, and well located place with a great vibe!
Really nice apartment and a great location. I highly recommend it. One caveat - if you have heavy luggage be aware that there are a lot of stairs and they are very steep. Otherwise it was wonderful :)
I had a great time staying with Maurits in Amsterdam. The Old West neighborhood is very close to the city center, but also a nice break from it. Great coffee nearby at lot 61. A nice place to stay in Amsterdam on a budget.
Maurits was our first host in Amsterdam.♡
Many thanks for a friendly welcome and for the patience of our poor English. Apartment is clean, we really liked that the room is located on the top floor (but we didn't like the view from the window: there is a repair roads now).
Minimalist room, comfortable bed, the room has an electric heater. Minuses: not very comfortable to go down to the bathroom and toilet on the floor below, and there is no sink. Unfortunately, wi-fi didn't work...
Generally, we had a pleasant experience, I recommend that room!
Great location, great price, great room!
Our stay in Amsterdam was perfect thanks to the ease, flexibility and kindness of Maurits. He made us feel very comfortable and was very friendly and warming. Thoroughly reccomended the room is very spacious and with an excellent view, steps are steep though!!!
The room is very private and comfortable, and the apartment is cozy and has everything you need. Maurits is a great host, he made us feel very welcome and he was always making sure we were having an overall good time in Amsterdam. The neighborhood is also great, with tons of restaurants, bars and pubs and at walking distance to the city's main atractions. We had a great time in Amsterdam!
M was a nice guy. Room perfect for a night or two. Not having a sink in the bathroom wasn't so bad.
Had a great 2-day stay in Amsterdam in November 2013. The room is the top floor in row house. Very centrally located. I walked everywhere.
Maurits is a very gracious host. He encouraged me to use the shared space and even invited me to cook dinner with him. Only complaint is that he was late cleaning the room which was only a very minor inconvenience.
Pas de chauffage dans la chambre a Amsterdam par une temperature exeterieur frisant les 0 degrés -> notre hote ne penses meme pas par lui meme à arranger ça!! on est obligé de lui faire comprendre , pour que le 2eme soir il tombe encore des nus lorsqu'on lui dit "houhou It's still frozen in our room" car il ne s'en est pas du tout occupé. On est obligé de passer par une phase de négociation ( ou on a presque envie de l'agresser mais nous sommes des gens civilisé et compréhensifs ) et heureusement il finit par comprendre et nous propose de nous rembourser une nuit sur les 2 . Nous apprecions fortement mais ce n'est pas dans un glacier que nous imaginions notre week end en amoureux =(
My friend and me spent almost a week at Maurit's lovely place and had a great time :)
He's a very uncomplicated and helpful host with who it's fun to share flat.
Our room was nice and clean and the flat itself was great, especially loved the (website hidden)'s situated quite in the centre so that you get around quite a lot.
I would not recommend it to people who aren't fond of stairclimbing because there's no elevator but if you decide to stay there you get sporty anyway!
The fact that there's no sink as well as the olympic light in the bathroom that never stops shining are just some funny/ lovely details but if you're a fanatic concerning cleanliness you may have to do a bit yourself because Maurits is just so busy ;)
All in all we enjoyed our time so much and will definetely come back!
