About This Listing
In one of the nicest (prize-winning!) streets in Amsterdam, built in the Amsterdam School style, a newly renovated two bedroom apartment on third and fourth (top) floor.
A spacious living room with build-in kitchen. One bathroom on fourth floor with bath, separate shower, toilet and one sink (not as shown in floor map); a toilet on third floor. A balcony adjacent to kitchen and another large balcony adjacent to your room.
The guest room has a double, comfortable, pull-out sofa. Whether one or two people are comfortable in a double bed is up to your personal preferences, of course.
You'll be sharing the bathroom and kitchen as well as the rest of the apartment with me and my cat. There are no other guests.
Your room with balcony is yours alone (unless my cat sneaks in). If my guests want to keep their privacy, no interaction is required.
Its style is a mixture of coziness and functionality.
Lots of books and dvd's, which you're invited to peruse, in multiple languages.
There's a separate working area in the living room, where you're welcome to work on my laptop, or use your own.
Microwave, juicer, dishwasher, hairdryer, iron, laptop, printer, scanner.
Cable TV (with HBO-channel) and dvd-player in bedroom.
Bed sheets, towels, shampoo and shower gel available.
Closet space and a small rod for hanging clothes.
Two bikes available; you don't need to pay rent to use them, but you'll have to sign an agreement that you will return them.
A 10 minutes walk from Amsterdam-Amstel railway station
a 3 minutes walk from the nearest underground stop.
From there a 7 minute ride to city center and
a 12 minute ride to Central Station.
The airport can be reached within half an hour.
Just a few stops from RAI convention centre.
By tram the Leidseplein, the main musea and the city center are 20 minutes away. By bike less than 15 minutes.
The night bus is situated just around the corner.
I have two public transportation cards for within Amsterdam which you can use. You have to recharge them yourself; still, it's much cheaper to travel that way.
Walking distance from two gorgeous parks, from the Artis Zoo, the flea-market, and the Portuguese Synagogue.
Grocery around the corner, and lots of other shops also within walking distance.
Plenty of pubs and restaurants, some good, some better, can be found close by. Canvas and Trouw, very popular clubs, are just around the corner.
Quiet multicultural neighborhood.
Please note, if you're allergic to cats, it is not advisable to book. I have a cat, and she's very friendly and nice, but she is a cat.
You're invited to use my kitchen, just note it's strictly vegetarian (and is, by the way, also dairy kosher, if you're interested).
If you borrow one of my bikes, you'll have to replace it if lost or stolen.
Parties are fun, but please, not in my house.
Please don't eat, drink or smoke in bedrooms.
!!!Please be quiet on your way up to my apartment and while going down. Don't slam the front door, no loud talking while climbing/descending the stairs, bring your suitcases up/down quietly!!!
This is extremely important, as I promised my neighbors my hosting via Airbnb will not affect them negatively.
That's it. On the whole, I'll enjoy having you here if you enjoy staying here!
Location is fantastic. 5 minute walk to the train station. Room is slightly small when the sofa bed is pulled out but none the less comfortable and we had a great sleep. Just be wary if traveling with large bags as staircase up to the flat is quite steep and narrow. However Judith was a great host and we'll be back!
Ubytování u Judith bylo skvělé. Výborná lokalita, klidná čtvrť, přitom blízko do centra. Byt hezký, útulný, čistý, pokoj pro hosty nebyl velký, ale hezký a s krásnou terasou. K snídani jsme si mohli dělat kávu a čaj.
Judith je výborná hostitelka, dala nám spoustu dobrých rad ohledně prohlídky Amsterdamu, včetně map. Půjčila nám i kolo, což byl skvělý zážitek. Všem toto ubytování doporučuji.
The place was easy to get to from a nearby metro. Judith was very nice and helpful, providing us with metro cards to use and maps of the city. Also she left a nice welcome gift for us! The stairways are very narrow and windy so be mindful of carrying big bags up and down. The room was a bit tight, especially with the bed unfolded, but it was comfortable for sleeping. The deck was cute and the neighborhood was quiet and friendly. Judith has a very friendly cute cat that hung out with us too! It was about a 10-15 min walk or a quick subway ride to the center. It was perfect for us because we spent most of the day wandering the city and the room was a great place to rest afterwards.
Judith was a magnificent hostess. I was allowed to share the entire house including full use of the kitchen. The guest room actually has its own balcony. She made my own space in the refrigerator. Judith also provided me with many maps and guide books and advice about what to see and how to get around the city. When I first came to Amsterdam, it was late at night and I was lost. I called Judith and she personally came out to get me. I highly recommend for anyone to stay with Judith because she is the ultimate host to any visitor to Amsterdam. You can't find much better. -Frank
We had a wonderful time in Amsterdam. Judith is a very kind host and we felt super comfortable living one week at her home with her together. She's very friendly and gave us clues what's great to do in Amsterdam. To use the two bikes was perfect to see the "real" Amsterdam. Her house is in a perfect location to explore the city, that's why we used all the time the bikes. :)
Her home is clean and tidy. I would come back anytime and recommend her home.

I find the experience of hosting via Airbnb a very satisfactory one. I enjoy making feel people at home, and making sure they have everything they need. Also, I feel proud to live in this wonderful city, and to share this enthusiasm with my guests. The opportunity to get to know people I wouldn't otherwise have encountered is a large extra bonus!
However, if my guests want to keep their privacy, no interaction is required.
