It depends if I am there, have time and if the guests want it :-)
a few hundred meters out of the very touristy areas like Leidseplein and the Jordaan but still very close and in an area with many nice bars and restaurants as well as shops that have special things to offer.

We stayed in the top floor room with en suite and roof terrace. We only met Willem on our last day there as he was away on business, but he responded very quickly to our questions about the flat via text, which made our stay comfortable. The flat itself is very spacious and clean. Everything about the place was perfect, I wish I could go back! Beware the extremely steep stairs though if this might cause you trouble.
We enjoyed staying at Willem's apartment, and he was very friendly during the short time we've met there. We liked the room, its big and confortable bed and its bathroom as well. The apartment is also well located.
The only thing we didn't like so much is that the apartment wasn't as clean and organized as shown in the photos. And something has to be taken into consideration before making a reservation, as in any other place in Amsterdam: the stairs! If you have problems with long and leaning stairs, you should not stay here. But if you don't mind, that's fine! We didn't have problems with it at all.
Very bad experience, unfortunately. The moment I opened the door to Willem's apartment in Amsterdam, I was greeted by a strong, foul smell. The smell got stronger as I climbed up the stairs into the apartment. Willem was not there, but his assistant Rick was. I mentioned the smell, and Rick apologized to me about it. The room was very small, and the apartment was messy, but the main problem was the intolerable foul smell, so I asked to connect to the internet to find alternative accommodations. The internet didn't work either, so I asked Rick to tell Willem to cancel the reservation, and I left less than five minutes after I arrived. I found alternative accommodations through Airbnb, which were up to the usual good Airbnb standards (see my positive review of Remco's Amsterdam apartment).
I contacted Willem the same evening to obtain a refund for my booking, but instead of graciously apologizing for the intolerable state of his apartment, he simply denied that there was any problem, and refused to cancel the booking or issue a refund. His lies and unethical behavior continued through several more days of my attempts to get the issue resolved, so I was required to lodge a complaint with Airbnb. Fortunately, Airbnb handled the matter professionally and issued a refund plus a $30 discount voucher for my next Airbnb booking.
I recommend that Airbnb users are very careful when booking with Willem. The photos and description of his apartment are misleading, and if you have any issue, he will simply lie about it and you will have to go through a painful and time-consuming process of dispute resolution.
The only thing I can agree with Johann is that it was a very bad experience.
The thing about the smell was entirely made up and Airbnb paid me for the stay. Please look at the many positive references on my rooms and isn't it strange that 1 out of a hundred came to a worthless apartment and others like it and give it almost a 5 out of 5?? The stairs are steep as is very often the case in Amsterdam. But a smell? No way. And the internet was working. He even claimed he booked another place while being there...... on the internet!
I had arranged for someone to be there on his arrival but as he was late I took a taxi from the airport to be there but he left in about 5 minutes, having already booked another place. That was probably why he arrived without any luggage.
Let it be a warning for others who consider taking him as a guest!
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Lovely place, an host really adorable!!!!!!!!!
My boyfriend and I stayed at Willems apartment in Amsterdam for four nights. The communication with Willem and Kim before our arrival was very quick and good. On the night of our arrival Willem was out of town, but a guy called Rick met us with the keys and showed us the apartment.
The room was very big and pretty clean. Clean sheets and towels were ready for us. The room has a very nice bathroom with a big tub and nice shower. It was pretty cold in there, but good otherwise. The bed was big and very comfortable for two.
The room also has a big balcony which I think will be great when it gets warmer outside. It could need a little cleaning up and some pillows for the chairs, and I would definately have my breakfast there.
The only thing we didn't like about the room was that there is no lock on the bedroom door. We felt a little uneasy leaving our stuff there in the beginning, but everything was fine and nothing got lost. There are two other bedrooms in the apartment, but we were not disturbed by them in any way.
The aparment also has a big livingroom/kitchen area, that you can hang out in and cook in if you like. We didnt do this, but it was nice to have the opportunity.
The location of the aparment is great, we only took the tram when we came from the central station, otherwise we just walked to the Jordaan area every day.
On our last day we got to meet Willem, who was a very friendly and nice gentleman. All in all we had a very good stay in this room and would recommend it to friends and others.
Wir haben Amsterdam sehr genossen. Die Gastgeber waren zuverlässig und freundlich, das Appartement gemütlich eingerichtet und in guter Lage. Können wir weiterempfehlen.
La casa è molto funzionale e corrisponde a come è descritta. Noi stavamo nella stanza in alto con un bellissimo bagno privato e un bel terrazzo. I proprietari non c'erano e ci ha seguito un simpatico ragazzo olandese che ci ha consegnato le chiavi. Durante il nostro soggiorno abbiamo condiviso la casacon due ospiti, ma non ci siamo incontrati mai. La cucina è molto comoda. Unico dettaglio negativo la connessione wifi dal secondo giorno non ha più funzionato.
we stayed ina masterbedroomwitha nice balconey , willem has a nice cozy house and it is close to public transport
Good location, great room and kitchen, everything was clean.
