We were able to walk (about 5 minutes) from the train station to Rik's place without any difficulty. Rik was there to welcome us and answer any of our questions. He generously offered to carry our suitcases up the three flights of stairs in this wonderful 400 year old building with narrow staircases. Our room was adequate and as described in his listing. The bathroom was functional, but only large enough for one person at a time.
The location was better than we expected. We were able to walk to all the areas we wanted to visit. The kitchen was furnished with various items for breakfast which we could prepare ourselves.
We enjoyed our stay and would recommend his AirBnB.
The location was perfect and exactly as described close to Central Station and in a lovely quarter of Amsterdam. Riks is a very friendly host and he has given us a warm welcome, all necessary information and a feeling of being friends and not just guests. The room was a bit small, but clean cosy and quiet. Very impressive is the kitchen/diningroom with a stunning view over the Gracht in front of the beautiful house.
All over all a highly recommended B&B.
An excellent location for this canal house. Riks was very friendly and helpful. We had a quiet small room at the back of the house and had wonderful views from the shared breakfast room at the front.
Location and breakfast is good; central station, shops and restaurants are all near the apartment, Riks is nice and willing to answer our questions; no elevator, hard to pick the baggages to second floor, room size is not big enough to open two baggages together.
We stayed in a room at the top floor of the BnB. The room itself was small but perfectly fine for two people without tons of luggage. Hot shower with good water pressure and a super comfortable bed! The breakfast is fine, and the kitchen is huge. A really great location. I would recommend this place !
Check-in has been accurate and detailed.
The apartment is just like photoes show, even better. Ricks is nice and polite.
The area is beautiful and central.
Riks seems like a good host - he welcomed us to the house with a smile and even recommended some places to visited. His house is in a super convenient location just 7 minutes walk way from Amsterdam Centraal station. You can also get to most of the sight seeing places in less than 30 minutes or so. Included breakfast was eggs, bread, cheese and meat and was available until noon which is nice. There we other guest at the house when we were staying there, but they were really quiet and we only saw them at the breakfast table.
Sadly, there were some downsides to this place as well. The two the really stuck out were (and are related) was heating and hot water. The room is heated via a single small radiator which took a while to change the temperature of the room even on the "max" setting and it never quite got warm enough for my Californian liking. Additionally, the radiators would go cold at night so the temperature in the room would drop. Luckily, we were provided with giant covers that helped us fight the night, but we still wished we had better heated room. Second, hot water was an issue as well for showering. We could not take early morning showers as there was no hot water (I am guessing the same heater controls water for room heating and water for the shower). Once we finally did get some water, it was only for a 5-10 minute shower, so the second person half way into their shower would get scolded with freezing water. That does not seem like much, but after hours of walking in cold Amsterdam all we wanted was a nice long hot shower.
Dear Aurimas, i am sorry for the discomfort you had. Heater temperature drops a bit in general during night as most guests like fresh room to sleep, but this can be adjusted easily for your preference. The warm showerwater is not restricted as it runs on a seperate heater. Please next time inform me whilst you are here, as i am always available for information and help. Kind regards, RIks
