Great location. Best neighborhood in Amsterdam. Pictures describe the place well. Jasper was very accommodating with check in due to a very late train. Would definitely stay again.
We had an amazing time staying at The Nest. It was clean, cosey and everything we could have hoped for.
We really enjoyed the flat. The location was perfect and Samy was very quick to help us resolve a problem with the dryer.
Great communication about the rental before we arrived. Clean and great location.
Samy was a great host. He was very communicative and helpful during all of our correspondence.
"The Nest" is a great place to stay. The views are excellent, the area is great, the bed is super comfortable, and the Wifi is fast. What else do you need? I would stay here again.
The location of the flat is very good. It was central but quiet on a beautiful canal. We didn't stay in the flat much as we have friends nearby. The photographs may have been taken some time ago as the décor now looks quiet tired, but the sofa and bed are very comfortable. We didn't meet Samy or Jasper the perfect host, instead we were met by Caspar who was pleasant.
I'm really sorry to hear that your experience at the Nest wasn't as expected. The pictures have been taken 3 years ago, and the flat has few changes since the shooting but for lots of guests the flat looks better on the pricture.
I've requested a new photo session with Airbnb in order to maintain a bette reflect of how the flat looks now.
Thank you for your feedback and again, please accept my apologies for the photos.
Samy's apartment is in an excellent location in the Jordaan neighborhood of Amsterdam. The apartment itself is roomy and comfortable, and Jasper was a friendly on-site host. Samy was reachable by email for any major questions.
