My place is a welcoming home in a perfect location close to the center of Amsterdam, Museum square & Albert Cuyp market but also nearby RAI conference center & beautiful parks like Beatrixpark, Sarphatipark and Vondelpark.
The street itself is very quiet with beautiful trees and Paris-style-houses in a Dutch cosy atmosphere, but you have to walk only 5 mins to be in the hip & heaving bar-scene - de PIJP! It is also a 5 mins walk to go shopping in the PC Hooftstraat or visit the Rijksmuseum.
It is a 2 room apartment on the second floor. The kitchen is open. The bedroom is on the backside and in the morning you can hear the birds sing. There is a small balcony where you can enjoy the sun in the evening.
The place is very easy to reach by public transport and there is enough parking space in the area to place your car near the house. From my house you can easily walk to the center or any other places of interest.
Just to be clear: when you rent my apartment, it will be exclusively available for you. For half the price I am willing to share it.
No kids or pets allowed.
Please keep it clean and respect my friendly neighbors. No smoking inside but the balcony is a perfect place for that.
Fantastic apartment right in the center of Amsterdam, Hotske was a great host but was pretty easy as she only needed to greet me and show me how anything works! Nice and easy place to stay, would recommend.
Prior to arriving in Amsterdam, Hotske was really great with communication expectations and instructions. Even though she and I never met, Hotske was able to coordinate the key transfer and all worked out well. The apartment is in a great location and serves as a great "home-base" for exploring Amsterdam. Had a great time! Thanks Hotske!
Hotske is wonderful, welcoming and informative.
The place was in a great neighborhood, super close to public transport and all the wonderful things the city has to offer.
Only thing is late night there's not really much around to eat, so stock up the fridge.
Beware the steep stairs! Haha.
Hotske made me feel very welcome and gave great advice on transportation and places to eat. The apartment is in a great location. It's quiet and within walking distance to the major museums and close to a couple tram stops to get you anywhere else. I'd highly recommend a stay here.
Fantastic. Hotske was really lovely and friendly on arrival - was like chatting with an old friend! The apartment itself is extremely central - no need to catch cabs anywhere, and the neighbourhood is just perfect (quiet, local, and very pretty).
Everything worked, and was comfortable (although, to be honest, when the apartment is this centrally located, you're really not spending much time there.).
Highly recommended, and would definitely use again.
The apartment is in a great location. I felt like I hit the jackpot in neighborhoods to stay in Amsterdam. The apartment was nice; it has one french balcony at the front and a small balcony at the back, which was nice to utilize on a summer night. It was smaller than what it appeared to look like in the pictures, but that is probably my own perception. One thing that I wasn't happy about was the cleanliness. While it appeared clean on the surface, it felt like it wasn't thoroughly cleaned for us. Given that we paid $34 in cleaning fees, it should have been properly cleaned for us! The rug in the living room was dusty and made me sneeze a lot. The sink had grime in it and the floor felt like it hadn't been mopped. I would not have had so much of an issue with these details if I wasn't charged a cleaning fee. Otherwise, Hotske was quick to reply and was in the apartment when we arrived. Wifi was fast and the neighborhood beautiful.
I enjoyed my stay at Hotske's. It's in a nice quiet neighborhood but still very close to main attractions (Museum area). She let me checked in early since i arrived early in Amsterdam. I had a great conversation with her on tons of things from the industry that we are in, jobs, life and even housing system in Amsterdam. She extended her excellent hosting quality to another level by kindly taking me to airport super early in the morning ... What a superb host... I highly recommend Hotske and you will also love her apartment (airy, clean and plenty of natural/sun light).
I love good food, traveling and sports. I am a very sociable and caring host. For years I have been hosting couch surfers with great joy. I travel a lot but also like exploring Amsterdam very much. I (try to) know about the best places in town, but am very curious about your view as well!
