Séjour très agréable
Appartement proche du centre et parking disponible pour la voiture donc pas besoin de payer le stationnement !
La cuisine est aussi à notre disposition donc pas obligé de manger à l'extérieur à tous les repas
I actually never met Gordon but was taken care of by his sister in law Anna. Although I was uncertain of when I was arriving Gordon's place, he was very nice enough to reason with my situation and worked around the issue I had. The room my friend and I stayed at was very comfortable, clean, and peaceful. Gordon's place is very close to the central part of city which makes everything convenient. I recommend anyone to give his place a try as I can assure you that you won't regret it.
Nessuna stella. La camera, come si vede dalla foto, ha un armadio che non si può adoperare (perchè Gordon ci tiene la sua roba, quindi i vestiti restano per lo più in valigia ed altri su un picccolo scaffale); una porta a vetri satinati attaccata al letto (da cui entra luce e rumori, del soggiorno, che Gordon fa quando rientra la notte e guarda la tv dalle 1 alle 3); non ci sono finestre apribili (quindi non si può cambiare mai aria nella stanza!!!); la sporcizia (abbiamo scansato leggermente il letto e c'erano fazzolettini di carta usati ed un calzino oltre allimmensa polvere); ci hanno dato un asciugamano a persona per 13 giorni!!!; ed infine il frigorifero era rotto per tutta la nostra permanenza, quindi la spesa fatta il primo giorno, l'abbiamo buttata. Se Sapevamo parlare l'inglese eravamo andati via subito.
We spent a really nice time in Gordon's apartment during our traveling. His house is very clean and near the city center,only 10 mins by bus. And Gordon is a really kind guy who gave us a lot of suggestions and help.
Gordon and his family were lovely hosts, gave us our space and were helpful with navigating transport. This was handy cause the apartment was a little further out than we expected, but the bus to central station only takes 8mins. Thanks for having us Gordon!
Good location outside of Amsterdam, short trip on the bus and you're there! The buses are regular also. The building itself was a little tricky to find, but I imagine that was because we weren't very good with directions, maps etc. The room was light, and clean and the stay at the apartment was lovely.
Gordon's house location is very good. We love it. although is not in the city, but just 15 mins by bus to reach. in front of his house, you get to see the bus stop. its very convenient.
Gordon's is a very very nice person, he had his sister in law to assist us. his house is very comfortable and we enjoyed so much during our stay there. I would definately come back again! thank u!
The three words that summarize my stay would be: unfriendly, delayed and unorganized.
Firstly, I want to point out how rude the hosts were. For instance, weeks before arriving I sent the host messages about directions. Waiting for days after sending the message, the reply I got was short and unclear. The hosts were unhelpful and seemed clueless. Its one matter not having the capacity accommodate but a whole new matter of not making even the slightest attempt to carry out their responsibilities as hosts. Other of my messages were answered in the same manner or completely ignored.
Secondly, the responses were delayed. I had to wait at least 3-4 days until I got a short, cold reply giving me the impression that they did not care. I had to wait for days to get anything out of them, sending messages numerous times before anything registered at all. It was very very frustrating and unpleasant. The only thing they seem to be interested in was the money I had to offer based how quickly they accepted the payment. I should have realized then I made a huge mistake.
Lastly, they were unorganized. I booked 2 weeks in advance and 2 days before arrival. They told me if I would be interested in booking somewhere else, for it inconvenience them. Furthermore, I was entitled to a noise free room but there was a infant in the house during the entire duration of my stay, which was not agreed upon. The baby kept me awake during the night.
In conclusion, I feel like I have been cheated. For anyone think of staying here: Please don't do it. I don't want anyone to go through what I have. Find another apartment; I highly advice you avoid this one.
David had some mix up wih his reservations, he figured out on saturday, that his bus is leaving on the same day and not on Sunday as he previously thought. He asked to get back cash, I had no problem helping him but I prefered to have it the proper way and cancel the last night via airbnb. They have done it, I aproved the modification and their money for the last night was fully refunded. David was keep asking me for more money. I feel very hurt, that he does not apreciate all our efforts to accomodate him and to help him out financially. I did warn him about the unexpected situation wih a newborn and suggested him to cancel as I was afraid that he might be disturbed. I am sorry that David feels so angry and left this untruthful review and I hope he will ge back on his feet finacially.
Nice place, very clean. Location is good, only 15 min from Amsterdam Central Station by bus 33 (and others), nightbuses also available. Gordon's wife is a very sweet and helpful person. View from the balcony is quite inspiring. Kitchen and bathroom very decent and well equiped. Also the family helped me in a personal favour, very very nice people. Totally recommended!
There's a lot of Travellers type, We're the kind that really enjoys travells and need accomodation that meets our standard after a day trip.
Gordon's place just 1 bus transfer from Centraal, so It's convinient for us to travel around.
Comfort : - Everything as pic described, double bed for us, and private room. The bed is good,
Facility : - Great, clean, spacy room for us, and hot water, and hair dryer for my wife. There's spot for hanging our clothes [We washed them once in 2 days], and we allowed to make hot water for us for drink [as far as i remember, they told us that we can use anything in the kitchen.. but we ended just boil the water]
Location : It's not IN the centre of Amsterdam, but it just the North of Centraal, with just 1 bus transfer from Centraal, with a good neighborhood
The Host : for our Trip to Europe, except Hotels, the most important thing when we choose accomodation is the Host, before I decided to choose Gordon's place, I contacted a lot diff Host, and I compare each of them, for me, Gordon's the best, He gave us directions and explanation about our trip.
Although when we stayed in his place, we rarely see Gordon, but his wife always there to help us, she is very nice, kindly accomodate us, to ensure everything we need is fulfilled.
Definitely looking forward staying here again. Thanks !
