The place and room I am offering is uniquely situated in the historical heart (old city center) of Amsterdam. And fits two people comfortably.
The private room is located on the third floor.
Main features of the room:
* Fast wifi (My internet plan 200 mb / 20 mb)
*Easy access to the room without disturbing anyone when entering and exiting the house
*A very comfortable two person bed (180 cm x 200 cm) or two one person bed (90 cm x 200 cm)
*Good heather that can be easily adjusted
*Towels and sheets are included
Interesting fact is that the room is located between the Radisson Blu Hotel (with an average price of 270 euro per night) and Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam (average price of 400 euro per night).
Bathroom & Toilet
Shared toilet and bathroom on the same floor. The bathroom is spacious with a separate bath and shower.
Interaction with guests
I am an experienced host that lives in the same apartment, meaning that I will be there for you whenever needed. If your are searching for a private stay, a stay where you can interact with locals or maybe just get introduced to some of Amsterdam hotspots, then I can be a great host for you.
My home is in a 16th century monumental house (2 floors) and is situated in a quieter part of Amsterdam's city center, just a few minutes walk from the lively Dam Square, the canals and all the highlight that this great city has to offer. It is the perfect base for travelers who wish to explore Amsterdam’s nightlife. Many not-to-be-missed historic attractions, museums, and theaters are only a short walk from this listing. Both business and leisure guests will appreciate the room’s proximity to the city's excellent public transport system. I can advise guests regarding bus, train and tram service. Top shopping, bicycle rent shops and canal boats are around the corner.
Tram-stop Spui - 400 m (5 minutes walk)
Metro stop Nieuwmarkt - 500 m (6 minutes walk)
Central Railway Station – 1.1 km (15 minutes walk)
Amsterdam Schiphol Airport - 20 km (30 min cab)
Other things to note
To become a better host I recently got my First Aid Certification. Also I guarantee your money back if you don’t like my place upon arrival. No questions asked from my side.
And the final thing: I would like to make your stay in my home a good experience for both of us. So I would like to inform you about two thing that are really important to me.
First of all direct communication; if there is anything that you want me to know, ask or something that bothers you, please let me know.
Secondly trust is a key value for me.
CLEAN: I expect my guests to leave my apartment in the same state as it was when they arrived.
RESPECT: Have respect for the fellow AirBnB'er, my neighbors (do not disturb them in anyway) and the host :). As this is a ±400 year old house the neighbors respect each other's privacy in terms of noise pollution, especially at night, so please be considerate.
SAFETY: No open flames are permitted anywhere in the house. That means no smoking or candle burning.
PRIVACY: I expect my guests to respect my property and not take things with them that do belong to me. If violated, guests will be immediately invited to leave the house and no refund will be granted. I am not a mean person, but feel that in opening my home to offer my guests a more affordable and comfortable vacation experience, my request for privacy should be honored without exception.
UNKNOWN PEOPLE: I do not permit anyone other than those in the original guest list to have access to my home. Please do not invite your friends or relatives or people you have met without my permission.
SMOKING: I do enjoy a smoke-free house. Smoking is not permitted.
DRAINS: The drains can clog. Please do not flush any things such as tampons, etc down the toilet.
I do enjoy a shoe-free house so please take off your shoes before you enter my place.
Thank you :-)
I am an easygoing and an open-minded guy that loves to travel. My interest in meeting new cultures and people is grounded in my roots, as I am half Dutch, half Peruvian and born in Indonesia. I believe that I have the Peruvian attitude in welcoming my guest and the Dutch approach in managing and setting up my new businesses.
I have explored Amsterdam for many years now and still think that there is much more to find out. The city and the party scene are extremely vibrant, but at the same time offers you plenty of opportunity to relax and just take in the atmosphere.
AirBnB has been a great platform for me and I am extremely proud that the AirBnB community has rewarded my effort with the Super host status!
