Thanks for being my guests. I am very easy going, speak 5 languages and always try to welcome you personally. When you decide to stay at my place I do have some house/hosting rules:

Your room is on the first floor (23 flights, steep staircase) and the other room as well. In between on the hallway is the shared bathroom.
You can lock your own room and can exit and enter the house anytime you like. I live and work in the same building.

Check in is flexible after 14:00-19:00. But please inform me about your exact arrival time. As I also manage a massage practice on the ground floor. I cannot open the door and welcome you while giving a massage.

I have stayed at this property twice. I highly recommend it based on comfort, cleanness and most importantly Matthijs was extremely helpful. The breakfast voucher is to a FANTASTIC bakery just around the corner that has five star reviews on yelp. The bathroom is large for European standards and sharing the bathroom was not a problem at all. It's very clean. I had a great stay.

Stay here if you are looking for a place to explore Amsterdam. Matthijs made us feel very welcome and so helpful in recommending places to eat and visit. He even let us leave the luggage after check-out so that we can spend more time exploring the city. Though it's central and close to all the attractions, it feels quiet at night and we had a good rest at his place. Thanks for hosting us!

Matthias was an amazing host. The place exceeded expectations on all accounts. Remarkably soundproof - we were there on Liberation Day and despite the central location and many partiers outside, we didn't hear a thing. Matthias was so friendly and helpful. A great stay.

Hi Airbnb-ers,
Welcome on my profile page, I am an easy going guy living in downtown Amsterdam. In the middle of it all, yet in in a quiet street. I love to travel and like to meet new people from all over the world! Airbnb is a great community and I am extremely proud they awarded me with the superhost status. I will do the utmost to make you feel comfortable. Besides giving massage I like food, dance, food, theatre, food, coffee, did I say food? ;-)

I have 2 B&B rooms and you'll share the bathroom with the other room. I would love to have you as my guest! So if you would like to stay city centre in a quiet room and have delicious breakfast (included) around the corner, come stay! The B&B is situated in the same building as Massage parlor RUST. (yes I also run a massage center, and yes you get a discount!) In the very heart of Amsterdam.

Before you book:
You have a seperate entrance with your own key. Check in is from 14:00-19:00. Luggage drop off before is possible, please make an appointment. I have a surcharge for check in after 19:00. I cannot accept a 3rd person in the room by Amsterdam city law. A baby counts as a person as well.
I have an official B&B so no need to worry you stay somewhere illegal as the press is lately not so kind to Airbnb.
