7. Last but not least: be kind to our furry roommate!
We hebben een geweldig weekend gehad in Rotterdam. We werden vriendelijk ontvangen en de kamer was netjes en mooi. Vooral het balkon was een leuke bijkomstigheid. Ook een schone en fijne douche & toilet. Bovendien was het erg leuk om de stad mee te maken door de ogen van de bewoner en niet alleen als toerist. Ilana had erg leuke tips voor een barretje en ontbijttentje. Zeker een aanrader!
The whole experience was great. Ilana received us warmly to her brought and neat home. Everything was clean and in order, nothing could be faulted. The unit is walking distance to the Rotterdam Centre, which was very convenient.
Llana's place was great! We loved all the great artwork and design and the hosts were very pleasant and helpful. They recommended a great restaurant across the street along with other great things to do. The area is very good with lots of shops and restaurants. Their place is about a 20 minute walk from Central Station which was great for us. I would highly recommend staying here.
Ilana and Marin made us feel right at home right from the outset of our stay. Provided some good local recommendations and were happy to have a chat in general. The room itself is beautifully presented and comfortable to stay in. Last but not least, due to unforeseen circumstances we had to request late alteration to our booking and Ilana was very accommodating of this. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Het Oude Noorden.
Overnachten bij Ilana was leuk en precies wat we zochten voor een weekendje Rotterdam. Ze waren zeer behulpzaam en gaven tips qua etenstentjes en dingen te doen. De kamer was mooi, schoon en groot met een leuk terrasje. We hebben er heerlijk geslapen.
Ilana and Marin's house is close to the center of Rotterdam, which is very convenience. And the room is as clean and cozy as shown in photos. The cat is cute and quiet. Ilana and Marin are friendly to provide the advice of traveling in the city. Highly recommend!
Ilana was very welcoming and friendly. Her and Marin's home is very nice, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay. Especially the balcony where we did yoga every morning.
About the Host, Ilana
We're a couple with a big love for art and architecture. Both graduated at the art academy, I now work as a political assistant and Marin works as an independant visual artist.
