Wonderful apartment, great location, very friendly and helpful host. Thanks, Johan, we really enjoyed our stay!
Abbiamo soggiornato ad Amsterdam in 2 per 3 notti.
L'appartamento di Johan è molto accogliente, arredato benissimo, pultito e con molti confort (dalla macchinetta del caffé al materasso riscaldante).
Ci ha accolto la sua assistente, Erica, gentilissima e ospitale. Il posto è praticamente in centro, vicino ad una fermata del tram per arrivare dalla stazione centrale, anche se per il resto del soggiorno abbiamo preferito girare a piedi o in bici.
Il quartiere, infatti, é molto tranquillo e caratteristico, a metà strada tra la zona dei musei e il centro, a due passi da Rembrantplein.
Consigliatissimo senza dubbio per una coppia in visita alla città.
Johan's flat is absolutely beautiful! Unfortunately my friend and I didn't get to meet him as he was away for the weekend, but his friend Erika was there to greet us and show us around.
The flat is more beautiful in person and Johan has thought of everything -- there was even a hair dryer with a diffuser in the bathroom.
We especially loved the neighborhood too. It was quiet in the evenings, but just around the corner from plenty of wonderful restaurants, bars and cafés. The flat is also right by a really convenient tram stop that takes you to the train station and other places around town.
Thank you for such a wonderful stay, Johan! I hope to visit Amsterdam again soon and your flat will be my number one choice.
This apartment is simply wonderful. The listing description is extremely accurate. It was my first time travelling to Amsterdam and I could not have asked for a better experience.
The apartment is 10-15 minutes away from Dam square by tram, which is actually a lot better than staying in the centre as the neighbourhood is very peaceful and quiet, you get the best of both worlds.
We were actually greeted by Johan's assistant, which was not a problem at all, she was very friendly and explained everything, even gave us tips on what to visit.
Even though it does not have a kitchen, Johan has everything you could possibly need in the apartment, there is cutlery, plates, mugs, wine glasses, a coffee maker. There is even a washing up bowl so you can clean up.
There was a list of recommendations including restaurants, supermarkets and cafes nearby that would be convenient to visit if we needed to grab something which was very helpful.
The bed is very comfortable and there is even a small wardrobe with hangers if you need to hang any clothes.
The pictures are very accurate, it is even more beautiful than it looks, I fell in love with it as soon as I walked in.
Perfectly located, in impeccable condition, with a wonderful host, surely one of the best places to stay in Amsterdam.
Johan war gerade verreist, sorgte aber dafür, dass jemand da war, um uns in Empfang zu nehmen. Wir haben die Wohnung gefunden und wurden herzlich aufgenommen.
Das Haus ist sehr hübsch, und in der gemütlich eingerichteten Wohnung haben wir uns sofort wohl gefühlt. Die Einrichtung ist sehr geschmackvoll und persönlich, sie passt gut zum Charakter des Hauses. Die Lage war für uns perfekt, ganz zentral und dennoch sehr ruhig.
Eine rundum schöne Erfahrung! Vielen Dank an Johan, wir kommen sehr gern wieder.
Vraiment Johan est un hôte fantastique...tout est prévu... Très disponible...et le studio magnifique...merci encore!
Johan was so kind and helpful and really quick at answering any queries. While we didn't meet him personally when we arrived, he made sure everything was perfect for (website hidden) place is simply gorgeous, cosy and all you could need for two. Perfect location and such a comfortable bed! Thank you Johan
