Nous avons passé un super séjour dans l'appartement de Marcel. Tout en étant très discret, Marcel a répondu présent sans tarder quand nous avons eu besoin de ses services, c'est un hôte hyper agréable. Quand à l'appartement, rien à dire, il était conforme à ce à quoi nous nous attendions au vu des descriptions, les équipements sont à la hauteur, rien ne nous a manqué. La terrasse donne sur une cour magnifique, verdoyante et très ensoleillée, le tout dans un quartier très agréable et proche du centre, que ce soit en transports ou à pieds (15-20 mn). Nous n'avons pas pu utiliser les vélos car ils étaient trop grands pour mon fils, mais nous avons constaté qu'ils étaient en parfait état. Bref, nous sommes ravis!
Marcel is a great host, he picked us up at the airport and made us feel very welcome. The apartment was great. City central is close, we found it easy to bus there and even ride one day. We were actually glad we chose this apartment as it was nice to be out of the hustle and bustle of the nightlife during the nights making it easier to wind down. The rooms do get a little hot during a hot summers day/night but if you open the doors up until you go to bed we found the rooms cooled down very quickly.
Marcel was fantastic. He provided all kinds of helpful information for touring Amsterdam. The location of his place was perfect for seeing the city. It was so easy to ride the bike around everywhere and truly a great way to see the neighborhood and all the unique architecture and canals of Amsterdam.
Our stay in Marcel’s Terrace Apartment was our first experience with airbnb. I can’t imagine a better introduction. He picked us up at the airport, pointed out areas of interest, and gave us suggestions for getting around the city. The location is excellent. There are grocery stores, cafès, and shops within easy walking distance. In fact, we walked all over Amsterdam from this location. Marcel had cold beer and wine waiting for us when we arrived. He also had travel cards and bikes at our disposal.
The apartment is small but efficient – actually a little larger than I thought looking at the pictures. Also, it is well organized with storage spaces. The real bonus (besides Marcel himself) is the terrace. We used it as our main living space. Amsterdam experienced a heat wave during our visit, and the terrace saved us. We sat out for our morning coffees, barbequed supper in the evening to avoid cooking inside, and relaxed under the umbrella.
On the second day of our stay, we arrived to find a fan waiting outside our apartment because Marcel was concerned we may be uncomfortable in the heat. Marcel goes above and beyond to ensure the comfort of his guests. Once you arrive, you need not see him again. However, he lives on the next floor down and is available for any questions or assistance. After our five day stay, he drove us to the train station. Thank-you Marcel!
Great !!! Very great stay ... The flat from Marcel is amazing . Very cute and friendly with a big roof top terrace . We loved it! Thank you marcel for the wonderful time
Marcel é um anfitrião muito atencioso e prestativo. Antes de irmos para sua casa ele nos enviou um e-mail com uma série de informações, mapas etc. Nos buscou no aeroporto por 20 euros e nos levou de volta também, o que valeu a pena, pois chegamos mais rápido em casa e sem o estresse de pegar trem etc. Além disso, o apto tem duas bicicletas disponíveis, o que para Amsterdam é top! Não precisa de outro meio de transporte. Lembrando que o aluguel diário de uma bike lá é em torno de 10 (website hidden) 10 minutos de bike chega se ao centro. Achei muito tranquilo ficar lá. O apto é bem pequeno, mas ok. Ele também deixou refri, cerveja, café e até um vinho disponíveis na geladeira. O único que vi fazer isso no arbnb. Resumindo, é um pouco longe do centro, mas com as bikes tudo fica perto. O anfitrião é muito confiável e atencioso. Ficaria lá novamente.
Tolle Lage des Apartments, genial Sonnenterrasse und Marcel ist der beste Gastgeber den man sich wünschen kann.
Willkommensgetränke bei der Ankunft im Kühlschrank, Reiseführer etc. hat er uns alles bereit gestellt.
Gerne werden wir beim nächsten Mal wieder kommen!
About the Host, Marcel
Ik woon reeds 20 jaar in Amsterdam, heerlijke stad. Ik woon vlak bij het centrum, nog geen 10 min fietsen. Ik heb een vaste baan als key account manager voor een airline. Ik werk in de hele Benelux maar mijn kantoor is op Schiphol. Ik reis veel en heb daarom ook veel tips over unieke en mooie locaties.
