한국인을 위한 후기
여기 위치나 여러가지로 완벽합니다. 시내에 너무 가깝지도 너무 멀지도 않은 그정도. 밤에 조용하고~ 좋습니다 조금만 걸어나가면 운하도 보이고 좋습니다. 호스트 '에론'은 매우 깔끔하고 멋진 사람입니다. 깔끔한 모습과 방을 보여줌으로 암스테르담의 전반적인 인상까지 좋아졌습니다. 하지만 호스트가 지켜달라는 것이 몇가지 있습니다. 그것만 잘 지켜주면 누구보다 좋은 호스트라고 생각합니다. 정말 '에론'덕분에 암스테르담의 인상이 좋아졌습니다.
The room at Jeroen's was perfect for my needs. A good sized room with comforts such as tea and coffee and information about the local area. Jeroen also provides a towel and basic toiletries - handy if you are flying in. The apartment is in a residential area and is very quiet. You can get to it by the #21 bus from Centraal Station or by #3 or #10 tram. He was very accommodating regarding start and end times - a very pleasant experience.
I stayed with Jeroen for five days during an archival research trip to Amsterdam. Jeroen’s apartment is in a nice neighborhood that’s not at all overrun with tourists and is more reflective of where real Amsterdammers live. Jeroen made sure to be home when I arrived and thoroughly went over all the details about the house. My room was the cozy front room, which Jeroen obviously spends a lot of time taking care of, and it was perfect for a solo traveler. Although you don’t have access to the kitchen, Jeroen has coffee and tea, as well as plates and utensils, in the room, and it’s no problem to keep things cool in the refrigerator. Jeroen was friendly and even invited me out after I got back from the archive one afternoon for a few beers and a good conversation, which was a lot of fun. I thought the neighborhood was great, and it was perfect place to stay in busy Amsterdam for several days. If I’m back in Amsterdam, I’ll check to see if Jeroen’s place is free!
Jeroen is a great host. We arrived late at the check- in day since the delayed he just waiting for us until night time and still explain the route where we should travel around. And apartment is good to stay that is cosy and he is tidy and cleaned up the room after we left. Because we back to the house to get our luggage. The location is easy to go to the central. So here is a good place to stay in ams!
This was the second time I stayed in Jeroen's place. As during the first time, our stay was very pleaceful and confortable! Jeroen is a very kind and gentle person, always flexible with our schedule, and always willing to help us. He recommend us a very nice pancakes place! He also is very respectful of the guest's privacy!
If I comeback to Amsterdam, I would certainly chose once more to stay with Jeroen, the best host in Amsterdam !
Jeroen was a welcoming host, he met us at the door, got us acquainted with out accommodation and recommend some great places to visit. The room was comfortable, as were the beds, there was tea and coffee and the bathroom was super clean. The neighbourhood felt safe and was quiet so that we never had trouble sleeping and we were walking distance from the city and some great cafes and restaurants. Awesome stay, 10/10 would recommend.
