-Is the house noisy from the pubs beneath? No, because of the surrounded houses they protect me from the noise.
But, remember you are in a city center. A weekend is always a bit noisy.
-Can I use your kitchen? Yes you can, as long as you treat it with respect.
-Is your house suitable for wheelchairs? No, you’ll have to climb some stairs.
-Are there any Vegetarian options in the neighborhood or your breakfast? Yes, and I can show you the best places cause I’m a veggie as well! You want to order a veggie (email hidden), no problemo!
If you have any more questions about the apartment, the environment or connections to Amsterdam, I would be glad to help you out.
Being born and raised in Zaandam, I can give you tips, trips and tricks you don’t find in the common tourist maps!
No smoking/drugs inside the apartment.
Respect my house and me and I will respect you.
Lucia was kind and nice, even if my arrival was very late in the evening. She gave me her keys and lent her hair blower, which was lifesaving for me. Thanks for the hospitality! Always a pleasure.
Lucia including her best friend are energetic and happy people. They welcomed me really well. The house is in the city center where you can reach the train easily.
Lucia was a very welcoming host. Her house was clean and as described.
Zaandam is just 10 minutes train run-away from Amsterdam central and Lucia's house is very near to the Zaandam station.
There are two cute cats who are always ready to greet you:-)
However, weekend nights can be a bit noisy with loud music from the bar below. Lucia provides earbuds to minimize that. Rest everything was fine and I enjoyed my stay.
I spend amazing time in Amsterdam and thanks to Lucia I had great place to stay, comfy bed and everything I needed:) It was my first airbnb experience and it couldn't be better. Felt like at home and thank you for that:)
Lucia is super nice and flex. She made me feel comfortable after a long tiring day.. Everything was clean and I felt really welcomed. She´s a really cool person to hang out with and she´ll gladly tell you about the city, where to go and what to do. She´s a great host. Really recomendable this place!!
I liked the neighborhood of Zaandam and there was a nice outdoor market very close to the apartment. I tried some great street food there! Traveling to Amsterdam by train can be a little expensive but is only 20 minutes away however the alternative way is to take the bus which is about 40 minutes away. Lucia was a kind host. It would have been good if there was notification that there are pets on premise as I have allergies to animal dander. She has two kittens and they do like to sneak into your room if the doors are not shut tightly. One morning I woke up to one sniffing my face! So, just keep that in mind for anyone that may also experience similar allergies. During the week, you will get a good rest but on the weekends the pub next door has music playing until 5am as others have mentioned.

I'm Lucia Mooij, a 23 year old girl. I love traveling and meeting people from different countries, so Airbnb is a perfect combination for me. My house offers multiple rooms which I don't really need, so I can offer people a nice time here in the centre of Zaandam. I am born and raised in the city and I can tell lots about it. Amsterdam is really around the corner (I work there) so I can give you some nice tips about that as well.
I offer 3 different types of rooms:
- Romantic 2 persons bedroom
- Modern 2 persons bedroom
- Travelers shared bedroom (like a hostel)
Take a closer look at my rooms and feel welcome to ask me some questions about it.
Hope to welcome you soon in Zaandam!
P.s and a paw from my two kittens!
