About this listing
Centrally located private room with shower/wc. Almost all city highlights within walking distance. Restaurants, bars,shops, theaters and live music clubs around the corner.(Leidseplein)!
Cosy, well equipped room with private bathroom right in the city center. There is a double bed and a convertibale sofa for a third person (+20 euro), which sometimes can be useful, but not ideal . You can be by yourself since the room is separate from my apartment. Free tea or coffee is provided and drinks may be refrigerated in the mini bar. In the bathroom you'll find towels, soap, shampoo and a hairdryer. There is radio, tv with various channels in your own language, a DVD player and internetacces through WI-FI. You'll find a small library in your room where you may exchange books. On my (website hidden) page you can share your experiences with others.
The room is located on the fourth (!) floor of a 19th century building and is only accessible via a steep staircase. If you are infirm or traveling with large suitcases, this could be a problem. I live on the first floor where I can optionally serve breakfast (+7.50 euro pp)
Interaction with Guests
It's my pleasure to provide you with information about the city. I may assist with reservations for theatretickets or (my favourite) eateries.
Depending on what you'd prefer the heart of the historical citycenter will surprise you with art in its numerous museums, offer you rock concerts at legendary venues like the Paradiso or the Melkweg (Milky Way), allow you to party in one of the many clubs, have a picnic at the Vondelpark, go shopping, admire the architecture from a canal boat or enjoy a nice dinner. There are endless opportunities.
There is a direct bus service (197) from Schiphol airport to the Leidseplein (taking half an hour). From the central railwaystation it's a 12 minutes tram ride (tram 1, 2 or 5) . All public transport, taxi,canal boats and bike rental within easy reach. Parking fee on the street is 4 euro per hour(!) from 9 AM to 12 PM.
Other Things to Note
The price includes wi-fi and cleaning expenses, not the breakfast.
I speak Dutch, German and English fluently and also some Spanish.
The room is situated in a private house with various apartments. I take it for granted that my guests understand that they should not bother the neighbours and act safely. No smoking. No drugs.
Amazing airbnb in the best location. The host was so helpful and provided us with so much information. Amazing apartment which was clean and very cute.
Wir hatten nur 3 Tage in Amsterdam, daher war Ediths Zimmer perfekt für uns. Die Lage ist super: direkt am Leidseplein, an einer Gracht in einem wunderschönen Amsterdam-typischen Haus.
Edith ist eine sehr zuvorkommende und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin, ihr Frühstück sehr gut und ihre Tipps nicht zu verfehlen!
Das Zimmer ist sehr schön, man hat einen schönen Ausblick auf eine Gracht. Das Zimmer bietet alles wichtige, das Badezimmer sehr schön und modern gemacht und die gesamte Einrichtung stilvoll.
Vielen Dank, wir kommen sehr gerne wieder!
Great weekend in this place. Exactly the same as the pictures. The room is perfect and the bathroom and everything really cleaned ! Tea and coffee, little fridge really useful.
Edith is a friendly person, good welcome much appreciated.
The location of the room in the city is amazing. The place to be !
For a good weekend I Amsterdam is perfect. I will give this address to my friend and hope to be back one day :)
Excellent host in and excellent location. Had a great time in Amsterdam thanks to the stay at this place.
Our visit was great! The room is just like in pictures, or maybe even better in reality. It's perfectly located, very easy to get to and from. We had a slight trouble getting our suitcase up and down the stairs since they are really narrow and windy and apartment is on three last flour, but that it's really minor and we really enjoyed ourselves.
Wir hatten vier tolle Tage in Amsterdam. Das Zimmer liegt super zentral, direkt um die Ecke ist der Leidseplein, von wo aus man super in alle Richtungen kommt. Alles vorhanden, was man braucht, zudem super sauber und das beste ist die Mappe mit Infos zu ALLEM was man in Amsterdam machen kann (Ausflugtipps, lokale Zeitungen, Stadtpläne...)
Edith war zur Zeit unseres Aufenthaltes selber in Urlaub, aber wir wurden ganz herzlich von ihren Freunden empfangen, die uns auch noch einige Tipps gegeben haben. Wer nach Amsterdam kommt, hat mit diesem Zimmer auf jeden Fall alles richtig gemacht :-)
About the Host, Edith
Originally I am from Frankfurt, Germany. I have been living in Amsterdam for 25 years and I love the city with its cultural activities like theatres, modern dance productions, pop concerts, cinemas, museums and all kinds of festivals. I enjoy the urban, cosmopolitan atmosphere. I earn my living with the B&B, as a substitute schoolteacher and sometimes as a translator. I've travelled around quite a lot (as a backpacker when I was younger and a bit more at my leisure nowadays, on my own and in the company of others). I therefore know how important it can be to find warm hospitality and a nice place to stay in foreign surroundings. This is what I would like to offer my guests. In return they will enrich my mind with their stories and experiences. I speak Dutch, German and English fluently and some Spanish.
