Interaction with Guests

Very easy connected to tram and bus stop (2 minute walk).
You can park infront of the house, but because it's centrally location, not cheap. Cheap parking place easy to find and connect to tram.

Other Things to Note
I also have a day job so please take into account the agreed time of arrival.
Normal common sense rules.
People that visit Amsterdam can do a lot of touristic things. There is also a lot of nightlife. So if you stay with me there is no problem with going out in the night time, but don't make unnecessary loud noises. In the night time or in the morning.
After booking, Airbnb sends my full adress. After that I'll send you a e-mail to your private mail, for verification. Also will send direction to the house.
Please don't ring the doors of the neighbours.
Please turn the light off when you don't use them.
Maximum 2 people.
No Check-In's after 22:00 hrs
An excelent host and a very cozy and nice place! Five minutes by tram to the city centre and 25 minutes by walk. I strongly recomend this host and this apartment!
Marc is a super nice host! The place is spacious, tidy, clean and have all the things you need. The location is good. One tram directly take you to the city center. But all the shops, including shopping, small markets, are just downstairs! I definitely would recommend this place to my friends.
Marc hizo que nos sintamos muy bien durante nuestra estadía en Amsterdam. Fue muy amable y nos dio muchas indicaciones que fueron de gran utilidad. El departamento es tal cual se ve en las fotos. El hecho de tener pava eléctrica y microondas es muy bueno también. El departamento está muy cerca de los medios de transporte que te acercan al centro rápidamente.
The room was very nice, and comes with its own fridge, coffee maker, desk. Marc is very kind and gave us good directions to his place. If you're looking for a quiet, affordable place, then this is it!
The directions shared by Marc were apt and perfect; it was very easy for us to reach his place from the airport. The location is very nice with everything at a walkable distance.
Mark was a great host: very friendly and welcoming. The room was roomy, by Amsterdam guest room standards, and the single bed was comfortable. A microwave and a fridge, as well as coffee, tea and a kettle, were welcome bonuses. It is very easy to get to into town by public transport, but after the trams stop (around 12.30am-1am) be prepared to Uber or walk a fair distance.
Overall, I would definitely stay at Mark's room again, if I were in Amsterdam for a short break again.
As advertised! Nice quiet area, and close to the centre of the city. Marc provided me with all the essentials. Just keep in mind that there is no washing machine and you will need to go elsewhere to wash your clothes. Only a minor inconvenience.
Marc was a great host that helped me out with anything I needed, and made sure I had my privacy. So overall, a great experience!
