The Space

The place and room I am offering is uniquely situated in the historical heart of Amsterdam. And fits two people comfortably.

Guest Access

The private room is located on the third floor.

Main features of the room:

* Fast wifi (internet plan 120 mb / 10 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 (email hidden) for you.

So far I have had a lot of good experiences with my guests.

The Neighborhood

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, canal boats and bicycle rent shops are around the corner.

Getting around

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

Other Things to Note

To (email hidden) 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. I for example decided not to put any locks on the rooms as I believe in mutual respect of each other’s space and belongings.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • I had a great experience staying with Manuel. He (email hidden), very easy to get along with and also gives you plenty of space. The room is very comfortable and quiet while the apartment itself is in the heart of the city center. Great location, great room. I highly recommend staying here.

  • It was great at Manuel's place!!! We will come back for sure!!! Thank u for the clean, nice decorated room with good beds where we slept like angels!
    Manuel war sehr zuvorkommend. Hat uns sogar die Schlüssel in ein Café gebracht. Sehr sympathisch und herzlich. Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt!

    June 2014
  • The room was quiet indeed, and clean, including toilet and bathroom.
    There was only minor interference with fellows in the room opposite ours.
    Wifi was not always operational (exceptionally according to Manuel).
    There was no TV or living room available.
    Staircases are very steep and narrow and are not suited for elderly people and heavy luggage.

    June 2014
  • Un super séjour en plein centre d'Amsterdam ! Tout est accessible à pied depuis l'appartement de Manuel. Nous avons été très agréablement accueillis et conseillés par notre hôte. La chambre était très confortable (très bonne literie) et le partage des sanitaires ne nous a posé aucun problème compte tenu de la propreté irréprochable ! Nous retournerons chez Manuel lors d'un prochain séjour sans aucune hésitation.

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!
