Cozy and well-loved little flat of ca. 50 m2, close to the center of Amsterdam 10 min stroll through the hip and happening Westerpark and you will be in the heart of popular Jordaan)
FREE ORGANIC (and may I add yummie :-) ) BREAKFAST INCLUDED! On request I'll even prepare a vegetarian / gluten-free / lactose-free breakfast for you. You can chose between homemade pancakes, eggs in all sorts and forms, musli-type breakfast or the standard bread and goodies - type (cheese, meat, jam, etc)
Please let me know beforehand if you have any special requests!
Free WiFi (of course)
The bedroom overlooks the park and historic monuments of the 'Westergasfabriek' which have been renovated and turned into cafe's and bars, galleries and spaces that host art house events.
There are many events in the park such as the fabulous 'Sunday Market' or 'Neighborhood Market' where people sell delicious homemade food and all sorts of art, clothes and goodies.
In the evening there are many bars (such as the famous 'North Sea Jazz Club'), cafe's and restaurants in and around the park with a broad variety of choices.
The tram and bus station is 1 min walk away and brings you to Central Station (ca. 15 min by bus Nr 21) and the center of the city such as Leidseplein, Rijksmuseum, etc. (tram Nr 10)
You will have the downstairs part of the apartment to yourself. If I am at home I will stay in a separate room upstairs and we will share the kitchen and bathroom. (The price is then lower than when you have the apartment to yourself while I am traveling)
The apartment downstairs is basically one big room with a semi-closed bedroom, a dining area looking out over the balcony at the South side, with a 4m long sofa and a dining table, a small open kitchen and bathroom.
There is a washing machine, coffee machine, an oven, a smoothie maker, a hairdryer and air purifier that you are welcome to use.
You might be lucky and there will be fresh tomatoes on the balcony that you can eat, plus herbs and salad.
I got rid of my last tv 6 years ago and never missed it ;-) So, no tv but free WiFi and high speed internet all over the flat.

I had a conference for work in Amsterdam and Lioba's place provided the perfect accommodation. Great location, very comfortable space, wonderful and gracious host. Though I was traveling alone, I felt extremely safe and Lioba was so warm and gracious, she welcomed me like family. She even made a delicious chocolate cake and gave me a walking tour of the neighborhood. The bed was soft and the apt is quiet.
Just be sure to note that it is on the third floor, so bringing large luggage does have it's challenges. That being said, it's got great natural light and views!
My friend and I were visiting Amsterdam for the first time and fell in love with the city. Lioba was a wonderful, generous and gracious host. She made sure we were well taken care of throughout our stay. She bought croissants and a special Dutch cake for us to have for breakfast, and made us delicious pancakes on our last day. She even gave us a little care package filled with sweet goodies to take back noting that we are major sweet-tooths. The apartment is conveniently located, with the bus stop and tram stop just seconds away, and takes you directly to the city center. We truly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this place to anyone!
Our stay was perfect at Lioba's flat.
The location is the best suited to walk around in the city, you are really close to main places to visit.
Lioba has been very welcoming at our arrival.
Apartment is nice and well located. Lioba was absolutely great host. She took care about us from arrival till we left. I have to strongly recommend this place.
Un séjour exceptionnel chez lioba! Tt était parfait! Elle était absente, mais elle nous a laisser plein de bonnes choses pour le petit dej! L'appart est vraiment très jolie! Je recommande sans hésite!
I really enjoyed Amsterdam as well as my stay at Lioba's apartment. I tasted her famous pancakes that are... yummy, we shared thoughts about life, art, world's current state, health and much more, and she even took care of me when I caught a cold. The apartment is very well connected to the city center and the view from the window is really nice. The neighbourhood is calm. Just... enjoy Amsterdam!
Dear Lioba, Thanks for sharing your space in many ways, making us welcome, taking the time to sit and have breakfast with us. This was our first airbnb and what a wonderful experience it was!
And to everybody who considers staying at Lioba's place: If you are looking for an experience, go for it! Make sure you treat her the way she deserves to be treated: as a queen in her realm , that she shares with you!
Onze kennismaking met Airbnb was er één om nooit te vergeten, dankzij onze geweldige host 'Lioba' en haar héél leuke appartement. Lioba is de host 'par excellence'. Contact op voorhand verliep erg vlot, ze heeft ons héél hartelijk ontvangen, de beste 'local' tips gegeven, heerlijk ontbijt bereid; er valt echt niets op aan te merken! En ook de accommodatie was top. Knap ingericht appartement, goed bed, uitstekende locatie (op 10 minuutjes wandelen van de Jordaan)...
Lieve Lioba, we konden alleen maar hopen dat het zou geweldig zou zijn en komen héél graag nog eens terug!
Groetjes Lotte & Christine
Great apartment with very easy access to tram 10 and bus 21. A very funky part of Amsterdam yet close enough to all to action. Very generous breakfast. Thanks so much! :)
Staying with Lioba in her lovely, light filled apartment was a wonderful experience. She made me feel welcome as soon as I arrived. Her organic breakfast is out of this world - amazing and generous cook! She also gave me some fabulous tips on where I should go during my stay in Amsterdam. I've already told all my friends about my experience. Thank you Lioba for sharing your home with me!
