I booked Katharina's apartment for my dad who was travelling to Amsterdam for a few days. He had absolutely no issues, and while he didn't get to meet Katharina, he met some nice people at the apartment complex and had a great time. The location was perfect too. I will definitely keep Katharina's apartment in mind next time I am in Amsterdam (or any member of my family!)
nice place, super situated (between airport and city)
very helpful and kind host - thank you!
The place: is quite convenient to the center as it is just a 1 tram ride away. If you will be visiting Amsterdam, while it isn't "walking distance", its only about 20-30min to Center/Central station.
There isn't much of the "Amsterdam view" outside the window as it is located in a campus, but if you are travelling, you will probably only use the room to sleep at night and take a shower anyway.
Listing was as described. Neighborhood: mostly students.
The host: I didn't get to meet Kathi in person, but she was easy and pleasant to communicate with and prompt to reply via email/SMS (always within the day)
This room was great!! A bit out of the city, but there is a tram that goes right to the center less than a 5 minute walk away. The room was large, very clean, and very comfortable. I would stay again if I return to Amsterdam! I would have given it 5 stars, but there was no wifi.

Thank you very much for the opportunity to stay in this wonderful area. In the morning you can hear the birds singing. Easy access to the city. Large room and balcony. I liked everything. I am happy with my stay in Amsterdam.
