Interaction with Guests
I am often not at home (work or travell) but always arrange a person to say hello at your arrival, also to give you some information,the keys etc.

Other Things to Note
most important thing in Amsterdam is to have fun while at the same time making sure others are having fun too.
simple things that shouldn't need explaining. Like leave the kitchen etc as clean as you found it and mind the neighbours. The staircase is an Amsterdam one so rather steep and it passes the front door of two other apartments. So please mind the neighbours while going up/
Great apartment but a very small room for two people. The fridge was damaged and it's annoying to live without it. We had a great time.
Willem war sehr hilfsbereit und hat auf Fragen stets schnell und höflich geantwortet. Die Beschreibung des Inserats war zutreffend und ausführlich sodass es keine bösen Überraschungen gab. Alles in allem kann ich keine negativen Dinge über ihn sagen.
Willem was good at communicating and making sure we got to the place safe. Neighborhood was in a good location, easy to walk to the city center. The bedroom smelled of mildew and was small. Overall experience was okay.
Il soggiorno presso Willem è stato un po' complicato. Tutto sommato positivo, l'appartamento è come descritto e come si può vedere dalle foto (anche se in esse la luce, la posizione e lo scatto lo rendono più bello di quello che in realtà è).
Facile da raggiungere con il tram 17 dalla stazione centrale di Amsterdam, ha supermarket e noleggio bici vicine. La zona è tranquilla. Non ci ha accolto Willem perché durante la nostra presenza era fuori, ma ha fatto le sue veci Mustafa, un ragazzo cordiale e disponibile, suo vicino. Le uniche cose di cui posso lamentarmi sono la doccia, completamente otturata. Anche solo per una sciacquata la cabina si allagava, e l'assenza di un tappetino rendeva difficile non allagare anche il bagno una volta usciti. La camera da letto è veramente minuscola. C'è la possibilità di fare un solo passo verso l'interno, dopodiché si procede strisciando tra il muro e il letto. La cucina è funzionante, anche se una sola pentola e una sola padella non bastano nel caso alloggino più persone contemporaneamente. Più volte abbiamo dovuto aspettare che altri cucinassero e lavassero per poi iniziare noi.
In conclusione, abbastanza soddisfatta :)
Willem was not actually staying at this place and we stayed with a few other airbnb travelers. It was in a great location, close to everything. It was also kept very clean and nice. However, the room is very very small for two people. We could not fit our luggage in the room for the whole week. I would recommend this room for one person.
Hi Anna, thank you for the reply. I first had the room as a single room but guests kept asking if I could not add another bed. As the price is more or less based on the single room with an extra guest it is just what many want: two beds with a small price tag. Maybe next time you can book a room that is bigger at a slightly higher price and even have your own balcony. Thanks for staying and I hope to see you in Amsterdam in the near future!
The apartment is nice for the location and the furniture, but we have problems with the organisation : the first day we had to wait for Willem's nephew and the second day we have had a problem with the new keys and we have had to wait for the nephew too. However the worst problem is with the bathroom of the apartment : during the worst storm of the last 11 years the water fell from the and we found three fingers of water on the ground. Otherwise the holidays was nice apart from the bad weather. Willem is always ready to respond to your requests.
We didnt get a chance to meet Willem buy Mustafa took care of us on arrival. The room came as advertised and the location in oud-west was great: next to the train, right by a supermarket and shops, but not super busy or loud. The common room was large and comfortable as well. Some kids that were also staying didn't clean up the kitchen, but Mustafa spoke to them quickly and took care of it. Overall, would definitely recommend Amsterdam and Willem and Mufasa.
