-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!

No smoking/drugs inside the apartment.
Respect my house and me and I will respect you.
Lucia is a really nice and flexible host! I didn't see her very often, but she replied messages quite quickly. The two cats are also really cute! The location is abit far from Amsterdam city centre, but is easily accessible by a train. The room is abit smaller than expected, but the beds are very comfortable and I slept very well. Its a good place to stay! Unless you don't like cats cause the cats really like hanging out in this room, especially the top bunk :)
Lucia was very kind, easy to get ahold of and provided me very clear directions on how to get to her house! The room is very comfortable, and although there was some noise having stayed on a weekend, it was still fairly quiet, and Lucia provides each guest with earplugs should it become too bothersome. The neighboring area is clean, safe and in a fantastic location should you be traveling into Amsterdam or around the Netherlands by train. I was able to do everything I wanted in just two short days! Thank you for a spectacular stay!
That was a good airbnb experience. I stayed in Lucia's place for three nights. The house was nice and Lucia was a really good host. Also, if you want to visit Amsterdam, the location is great. The only problem the slow and sometimes not working WiFi.
It was a great stay in Lucia's place. Great experience in a shared room. Room is clean and convenient location too. Lucia was very friendly and detailed.
Very good experience in Amsterdam.Easily access to city center. Meet great people there.Lucia is a nice host and provide me a detail information I needed. Highly recommened
Lucia is a very nice and caring host, and the rooms are furnished with a lot of passion and style.
Since I stayed there only for a weekend, I can only refer to the two nights I spent there: Frankly speaking, it was possible to hear noise from the pubs below in my room. However, ear plugs were provided ;)
If you like to stay in a home that is designed with a lot of love, and you like to meet other travellers that might be around, this is definitely a great option for 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.

I'm Lucia Mooij, a 24 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)
I also offer a room in my parents house which is only 5 min (walking distance) from the famous Zaanse Schans
- 2p bedroom 5min from zaanse schans
Take a closer look at my rooms and feel welcome to ask me questions about it.
Hope to welcome you soon in Zaandam!
P.s and a paw from my two kittens!
