Igor is a nice and very helpful host. The house was close to the central station, clean and tidy. The area is quite and the bed very comfortable so we had a great sleep. Thanx Igor! See you again next time!
We had a pleasant stay. The apartment is located at a convenient area and it's interesting to take the ferry to and fro the centre. Thanks to the house rules, we had a quiet night and was able to sleep well.
Die Wohnung war in Ordnung und hat der Beschreibung entsprochen. Wlan war vorhanden. Sie liegt in einer runigen Wohngegend. Wir waren über Ostern 2015 in Amsterdam und konnten Igor treffen. Er war sehr nett, zuvorkommend und hat, obwohl alles vorhanden war, nochmal nachgefragt, ob wir noch irgendetwas benötigen. Fazit: Gerne wieder!
Igor was very communicative and easy to coordinate with. The house is very functional, clean, comfortable, has everything one needs and is easily reachable by the ferry transport. We enjoyed experiencing living in the up-and-coming district of Amsterdam Noord. Igor's place is definitely recommended!
Igor was a very nice host. The location of the apartment was good as well. Although we would have prefered the bigger room, overall we enjoyed our stay at Igor's place.
While we didn't interact with Igor much, he did a lot to make us feel at home. When we arrived (a little late due to a delay) he let us in; showed us around and provided us with a very clean, well stocked room. The room is located immediately upon entering which allows for lots of privacy. The kitchen is clean and full of anything you need for a short stay. The place is in North Amsterdam, just a short ferry ride (very easy to navigate) from Centraal Station, but a lot quieter and private than I imagine a room in the center of the city would feel. Can't recommend it enough!
Igor was very responsive and quick to reply to my email questions. His apartment was in a great location across the river from the Central Train Station and I enjoyed the free (and convenient) ferry rides back and forth.
As was mentioned by other reviewers, the bedroom and bathroom are clean and comfortable. This is a great place if your only intention was to enjoy Amsterdam and then go back to the apartment for sleep. There is no living room or common area to hang out in the apartment. Additionally, the walls to the bedroom are very thin, so I could hear the buzzing iPhone notifications from the renters next door even though they had their phone on silent mode.

About the Host, Igor
A guy, originally from Ukraine, lives and works in the Netherlands for 13 years in a quite big flat with 3 bed-rooms. Have been doing bed and breakfast for several years and enjoying a lot meeting new people, share experiences, telling what beautiful city has to offer. I enjoy getting to know other people from all over the world, tell them about Amsterdam and hear how enthusiastic they are when they explore this special city. Since recently I bought a flat in Barcelona as well and my friend Lorenzo who speaks 5 European languages will be your perfect guide and host in case you decide to stay there.
