Interaction with Guests
The host, a writer, is available most of the time. Speaking English, Dutch and French, he is able to tell you all the details you need to know to have a great time in Amsterdam. He has two small dogs that adore attention by those visitors who feel like it. If not, one might only hear them bark every now and then. See pics and you will love them!
The very center of old Amsterdam. 17th century beauty, wherever you look and go. Near all the museums, shopping streets, bookstores, terraces and restaurants. In whatever direction you walk you will enjoy the particular charm of the canals.
Go to 'location', and drag the yellow puppet in the top left corner to the green Airbnb logo to see the streetview.
Three trams (1,2 and 5) stop at 50 meters from the building. They come and go every five minutes and take you in 7 minutes to the Central Station.
To the airport best is to take bus 197, at the Leidseplein, a five minutes walk. A 20 minutes ride for 4 euros.
Other Things to Note
Bus 197 takes you from the airport to the centre of the city, a five minutes' walk from my home, a twenty minutes' ride for 4 euros only. I highly recommend!
Get off the bus at the Leidseplein, head in the direction of the 'KLM' sign on a rooftop, take the busy shopping street right next to it and continue straight ahead to the Keizersgracht. Cross the bridge over the Keizersgracht, take to your left, where you see cafe Walem. My place is 50 meters down from there.
Be kind, do not be too noisy.
Smoking only allowed in the back of the garden.
Capacity of studio: 2 persons.
Enjoy your stay and ask me where to go & eat. Love to make your stay pleasant!
NOTE: check in time is 3pm. However if the flat is available earlier, you can check in earlier. In any case you can drop your luggage, already explore the city a little bit and come back later for final check in.
