The stay was good . The house is clean, organized and located a few meters from public transport. By walking, 35 minutes from central station.
The beds are ok!
The owner was quite attentive and helped with all the doubts .
Our stay with Michele and Patsy was how we expected it to be: really good! The room was nicely prepared and we felt welcomed. Michele provided us with every information we asked of him and was a helpful host. Patsy was a cute and well-behaved cat who made the stay even better.

Michele nos ofreció algunos productos para el desayuno (café, té, mermelada, pan, etc.) y también nos dejó usar su cocina aun fuera del horario establecido.
Cumplió con todo lo pactado en el contrato.
El barrio es muy bonito, muy tranquilo y está bien comunicado con el centro de Ámsterdam por transporte público, así como también con el aeropuerto Schiphol.
Michele was a nice host, even though I only stayed for a short time. I did not have many encounters with Michele because I was often out of the house, but he was very kind the few times I saw him. The apartment was nice and the room was suitable for what I needed, although fairly small.
The flat was well located within the city, making it very easy to get around. We didn't see our host much, but when we did, the interaction was always pleasant. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Patsy the cat was adorable and kept us company when we were at the flat. Overall, a good stay.
The bedroom very lovely and very clean, we have sweet dreams here! The cat Patsy also very charming. Everything is good~
C'était notre première expérience avec Airbnb et Michele nous a donné envie de recommencer! L'appartement est exactement comme sur les photos, notre chambre un peu petite mais ça nous suffisait largement vu le temps qu'on y a passé. Le petit déjeuner le matin était très bien. Michele est discret et très gentil, il nous a mis à l'aise dès le début, nous a donné des bons conseils et nous a rendu service à chaque fois qu'il a pu. Son chat Patsy est adorable et très sociable. L'appartement est très bien situé, pas de bruit la nuit, juste en face l'arret de tram et à une 20aine de minutes de Jordaan, un très joli quartier. Très bon séjour, je recommande très fortement !!

About the Host, Michele
I'm Italian (from Sardinia) , I live in Amsterdam since 2000.
I work as freelance 3D designer and project manager for retail marketing.
I love good food, always looking for typical restaurants in every place I go, and I enjoy cooking with or for my friends.
I like outdoor sports (running, cycling), traveling, and riding my motorbike in the country side with no destination.
After several years living in this city I'm still in love with it, Amsterdam is so full of culture and hidden beautiful spots to discover, there is always something happening, from concerts to exhibitions, and more.
I discovered airbnb one year ago, I enjoy hosting my guests, make them feel home and help them with tips and advices.
Looking forward of having you as my guest :-)
