Dirk is a wonderful host! His place is positioned very close to the center and you can go by foot anywhere. What else, he is giving you hints where you can go in Amsterdam, what might be interesting for you, things that only the local people know. Thank you, Dirk!
It was wonderful staying at Dirk's appartment. It is located just on the edge of the Jordan area of the city and is a 10-15 walk to so many major cultural hot spots in Amsterdam. The tram is also just nearby. Dirk is so friendly and generous with his time and suggestions about what to see - the best surprise was the exhibition of Malevick at the contemporary art Stedelijk Museum. I really enjoyed our conversations in the mornings over a cup of coffee. He is well travelled and well read! Lots to talk about. And the room is spacious with a gloriously comfortable bed and doona. Thanks very much Dirk, Maria
Dirk is a very warm, friendly, enthusiastic and welcoming man. The communication and checkin was easy. It did impress me that at both arrival and departure, he took all my baggage up and down three flights of stairs. The room was clean and, yes, I did sleep comfortably. That's the good part.
This is the other part. I think that at C$63 per night for the small room on the third floor which I see today is advertised on the web site at C$55, the price exceeds the quality. The conditions are typical for an Amsterdam working class neighbourhood but a well-travelled Airbnb client like myself expects more for the money or the same quality at a lesser price. E.g. a common area to sit and watch tv, a host who engages in conversation and a modern bathroom. Although convenient for transportation, the apartment is also quite a distance away from postcard Amsterdam.
Like all the reviews say, this is a great place to stay and Dirk is a great host! He even helped us bring up the luggage to the 3rd floor. The room I stayed in is huge with huge windows over-looking a quite street. Very clean and organized apt. The kitchen has everything you might need and Dirk offers everything. He even has a tablet (like iPad) available for guests to use. Absolute DO ask Dirk for suggestions on where to go and what to do because he knows it all and is very happy to share! The location itself is great, just a few minutes walk to the tram. Coffee shops, restaurants, grocery all within 2 minute walk. High recommend this place!
Dirk was a great host, super friendly and helpful on what to see and do to make the most out of Amsterdam. He even went out of his way to do me a personal favour which I a really appreciated ! Thanks Dirk !
Dirk is an excellent host. He welcomed us with a smile, fresh coffee and fruits and with an incredible amount of very useful information about the city. The flat is conveniently located and very good value for money. Enjoy your stay at Dirk's!
Séjour très agréable, Dirk est un hôte très discret et charmant. nous avons beaucoup apprécié mes deux amies et moi cette très belle ville d'Amsterdam.
I love love loved staying at Dirk's. The room was bright and clean, just as advertised. The hospitality was above and beyond what I've come to expect with airbnb hosts. The house is ridiculously close to a tram stop and the tram's are so easy and cheap to use. Dirk was so helpful with which tram lines and stops we needed to know to get to our desired destinations within the city. He also kept my friend and I amply supplied with free and delicious coffee, so if I could give him an extra gold star I would! It was awesome, I will definitely stay with him again for my next trip to Amsterdam.
Dirk is a fantastic person, he help me about the streets bars and transport. He is friendly and funny. He is very recommended.
Dirk Coppens is a lovely man! He was so kind and gracious. An amazing host that helped us out quite a bit, even when I locked my suitcase shut and couldn't get it open for the life of me, Dirk was there to help me bust the lock. We looked forward to seeing him in the evening after our adventures in Amsterdam. The room was clean and bright and the bed was comfortable. He even left us a bottle of water with two glasses and some goodies to eat on our dresser. He has tons of info on the in's and out's of Amsterdam as well as plenty of maps, and knowledge of the train's. We just loved him. He was fabulous! One more thing, the apartment is very conveniently located in Amsterdam. The walk from the tram to the apartment is very short. However, if you have problems with stairs this place might be tough for you. It was 3 flights of stairs up to our room. Dirk was wonderful. This is a must stay if you are heading to Amsterdam!!
