The private room is located on the third floor.
Main features of the room:
* Fast wifi (My internet plan 200 mb / 20 mb)

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. I for example decided not to put any locks on the rooms as I believe in mutual respect of each others space and belongings.
Trust and respect are very important for me. As host I am easy going and not difficult to interact with. But I do ask to communicate any question or issues you might have. To make your stay as comfortable possible I will ask you to follow these 'rules':
- Be honest, If there is something on your mind please just tell me.
- Have respect for the fellow AirBnB'er, my neighbors (do not disturb them in anyway) and the host. :)
- Do not smoke in the house!
From Sep 28 - Oct 2, 2015 the minimum stay is 4 nights.
Nice room in an excellent central location. Manuel is a great host, very friendly and helpful.
This is my first time as a guest using
Airbnb. I am glad that Manuel is my host. Manuel is a very friendly and bright young man. The location of the house is so good, and you can go to several main attractions easily. The room is clean and quiet, I definitely will stay there again if I come back to Amsterdam.
Manuel is the best! Great communication throughout my whole visit. The room is centrally located with a coffee shop across the street and the red light district is a 3 block walk. The room was perfect! Clean with a place to hang my clothes. The bed was the most comfortable i have slept in my travels! You have to share a bath with another guest, but i never saw him and it wasn't a problem. About Manuel, he is the coolest air bnb host. He took me on a boat canal ride, out to dinner and bar hopping. He made great recommendations and rented me a bike! I was traveling alone and he got to know me and what i liked and helped me plan my visit. Awesomeness all around! Ps. Free sim card was great and you are right down the block from some beautiful canals! Book your stay now!
Manuel ist wirklich ein sehr guter Gastgeber. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Lage der Unterkunft ist perfekt, mitten im Zentrum, in der Nähe von der Universität und den meisten Sehenswürdigkeiten, besser geht es fast nicht und das Zimmer ist tatsächlich sehr ruhig. Der Schlafraum und auch das Badezimmer sind sehr sauber. Wir haben uns fast wie zu Hause gefühlt. Danke Manuel nochmals für deine Gastfreundschaft!
Manuel was extremely welcoming. He helped me with my luggage up four flights of very steep stairs and showed me where everything was. Even though I arrived an hour later than intended he was still there to show me around. The SIM card with data was extremely helpful, and he introduced me to now what is my favourite restaurant in Amsterdam. He also invited me to have drinks with his friends and really made me feel welcome. I also had a dental emergency and he helped me out with that. Manuel never made me feel like I was being too much trouble!
The location of the place is also great, within walking distance of almost everything.
I had a wonderful week living in this quiet room. Everything was exactly like what you saw on the webpage. The location is quite near to the Amsterdam University where I had a conference. And the room is very clean and quiet. I had super good sleep every night. Facilities in the rest rooms are clean and good as well. What makes the room more convenient are the people here. Manuel is a super kind man and ready for help. My neighbours who's also a guest had great self-discipline and never disturbed me by any meanings. I will come back.
Manuel is very nice.He help me to carry my 30”suitcase to upstair.He will give advise for the trip.Room is very clean,in good location,near central (email hidden)ower romm is big.the room is much better than the hotel i lived in Amsterdam in same price.Highly recommendation.will be my first choice when I come back to Amsterdan.Thanks Manuel.

About the Host, Manuel
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!
