Comments on the area:
---------------------
"De Baarsjes is very much on the rise as an up-and-coming neighborhood with a population that is both young and multicultural. Situated remarkably close to the city centre and with plenty of green, the area is attractive for families, artists and young professionals alike."

"De Baarsjes is remarkably close to the city centre. It’s not only minutes away from Vondelpark, but it also has its own green and rambling Rembrandtpark."

"Off the commercial shopping boulevard Jan Evertsenstraat there’s an open air market on Vespuccistraat. An active policy of creating ‘cultural breeding grounds’ has seen the rise of such multifunctional arts centres such as Het Sieraard and Meneer de Wit, as well as the gallery street, Witte de Withstraat, all of whom work closely with the community on arts and culture projects."

  • We met Ilario, Alberto's friend. He was very nice, welcoming and attentive. The house was really cosy and we had a lovely time there. Ilario was helpful, breakfast was good and the house is well situated; not too far from the city center.

  • This was my first trip to Amsterdam and my first time using airbnb. From booking to our departure it was a pleasant experience. Alberto was a wonderful host. We didn't spend much time in his home since we were there as tourists but it was very cozy during the our two day stay. The house is clean, the room is comfortable and Alberto serves up a fantastic breakfast each morning. I would love to stay here again on a future visit.

  • Great breakfast (soy milk and soy milk choko for vegans), clean rooms and very friendly hosts.

  • Alberto and Ilario's apartment is charming, quirky and comfortable! We stayed in the "Romantic" bedroom and were very pleased with it's super cozy bed, cleanliness and wonderful sunlight and balcony. Alberto was a lovely host (Ilario was away for most of our stay, but he too is a kind man) and was eager to answer our questions, offer advice about the city and make good recommendations. He was always accessible and very friendly - he even baked us some meringues! And the breakfast each morning was quite a display. If you stay here you will have full access to your bedroom, the bathroom and the dining room (during breakfast hours, 8-10am). Alberto provided us with shampoo, toiletries and towels as well.

    The location is just secluded enough from the downtown insanity of a zillion bikes and people, but it is a very short Tram/bike ride to all the major attractions and areas. This was our first time in Amsterdam and we thought the location was perfect and very scenic - especially considering the front door is directly across from a sprawling, lush public park. It is very quiet and safe.

    The fact that we were given access to bikes during our stay was in some ways the best part. Having a bike to get around seemed crucial and we had so much fun riding everywhere all day and night!! I very much recommend staying here, you won't regret it!

  • From now on, Alberto's appartment will always rime with Paradise in my mind... I felt spoiled like a Queen (you should see his breakfast table, it looks like a Christmas table... covered with so many delicious stuff...). The ambiance was magic. The bike that was at my disposal made me discover Amsterdam in a very interesting way. Well, this address was a blessing :-) Thank you so much for all the little attentions, the nice welcome and all the rest.
    If you plan to go to Amsterdam, don't hesitate anymore: this is a great address !!!

    May 2012
  • A wonderful place with two special persons: Alberto and Ilario. Everything was perfect starting from the great breakfast, bicycles and finishing with a lot of surprises and little expedients that will color the day.
