Everything was smooth from the beginning to the end. The self check-in process was super easy and well prepared. Loos' apartment is well furnished and there is even a HiFi amp and a video projector so you can watch movies in the evenings. In addition, the jordaan neighborhood is within a short walking distance (10 min).
This flat is really as described, spacious and quiet at night, well situated in Amsterdam! The way from the airport is really easy and Jorus is of a Help at any moment...
Really closeby : the Dam place, Anne Frank house or the museums area... We did everything by foot, the old touristic center is not that big...and even going to further areas, less crowded, is doable, which is great as the transports in Amsterdam are rather expensive !!
Everything you need is there in the flat, as Jorus is extremely welcoming !! Wine and fruits were there on the table waiting for us with little souvenirs presents ! We were invited to use anything we needed and to replace it or leave money for it if no time to go shopping at the latest moment...
Cooking own meal is easy too, (and cheap when family of 5 !) there is a supermaket on same street really closeby !
Computer with guest session is available too, really helpfull to check broadcast, times of opening for the museum and book tickets...
And just a word about the tremendous "help book " Jorus wrote, explaining everything you need to know , concerning the flat and the city...
Well, everything went perfect then, and we appreciated Jorus help , advice and trust, sms exchanges were helpfull (we didn't meet him)
Should we go back to Amsterdam again, we will no doubt choose this host again !!

Fully equipped modern apartment in an excellent location with Vondelpark and the city centre all within walking distance. Very spacious and warm as well as being exceptionally quiet, we couldn't hear anything despite being near crossroads. The bikes Jorus has available are an excellent addition as it makes getting about the city much quicker. We would certainly stay here again as my whole family thoroughly enjoyed there stay here.
There was four of us, two couples, all visiting Amsterdam for the first time. The trip was a last minute idea, planned and executed in less than 4 weeks, and included a traveler using a wheelchair. Jorus and Loos's place was perfect for our needs. Description of the place, and it's possible complications regarding accommodating a wheelchair were honest, descript, and very accurate. Let me add, finding a residence to stay in Amsterdam without steps, such as this, is nearly impossible.
Jorus provided a manual that marvels the works of Shakespeare or Tolstoy. I'm an active host on airbnb, and embarrassed by comparison on the info I provide my guests. The information offered is invaluable, especially for first time visitors. We consulted this manual numerous times.
The flat itself fulfilled our needs perfectly. Light, spacious, accommodating, and properly stocked with essentials. I'm not a coffee drinker myself, but my fellow travelers all are, and they took full advantage of the "machine". Which I might add, is something from NASA, or some SciFi movie. Very impressive.
Location was great. Shops, eateries, and points of interest all around. Trams just down the block at the first intersection.
Jorus was never more than an email away, and helped us on a number of occasions. (even though he was on holiday himself).
I highly recommend this flat. Especially if you're a first time traveler to Amsterdam.
Couldn't have asked for a better experience. The apartment is spacious and bright and the kitchen has everything you need (including a great coffee machine). Jorus is incredibly thorough regarding the details of the apartment and really went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. We were asked to be conscious of the volume after 10pm so as not to disturb the neighbor, but this wasn't necessarily an issue for us. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Amsterdam and would be happy to stay here again.
Sin dudas una de las joyas de Airbnb, excelente anfitrión, un manual muy completo que facilita la estadía. Muy bien ubicado a unos pasos del centro de Amsterdam. Loos esta atento a cada detalle, lo pasamos bárbaro.
