Frans was a very welcoming host, and was happy to share information about visiting Amsterdam (though it was my second visit so I didn't take him up on it.) The room was nice, with a comfortable bed and lots of space. It was also very easy to get to/from the airport, with a bus stop a few minutes walk away and a ~12 minute ride.
Thank you Frans for everything! We'll come back any time we want to go to Amsterdam! Say hi to Minck!
Frans was very friendly and helpful. Our room was beautiful, and the bed was very comfortable. Everything was clean and I was very impressed.
