Welcome to our laid-back, "smoke friendly" house, where you will find a vaporiser in almost every room. It is Amsterdam after all and you'll find us in the heart of it.
We live on the lovely Keizersgracht canal and you will find us on the corner with Utrechtsestraat, just two blocks south of Rembrandtplein. So you'll find plenty of local bars, restaurants, cafes and coffee shops just around the corner.
The #4 Tram stops just outside our front door, but there is no need to buy a Tram pass as we are within walking distance to pretty much everything you are coming to see. We also have some bicycles that we are more than happy to let you use free of charge. Just let us know when you arrive. It's a fun and safe way to explore the city.
Our house is the whole 5 floor canal-side building. It's an old building that's been decorated in an eclectic and quirky style. We have divided up our house into a few single and double rooms, both with and without en-suites and a few larger self contained units we call apartments. All The rooms/apts are off a common stairway and share the same entrance, but the room/apt is your own private space that you do not need to share with anyone.
This Double room is located on the first floor and is perfect for 1 or 2 people.
There are two single beds in the room, so if you are a couple that likes to cuddle at night you may want to check out our other rooms with double beds.
You have access to the shared bathroom with shower just downstairs from your room on the ground floor.
We do have some other double rooms, so if this one is booked, just ask if there is another one available.
There is a computer in the room for you to use that is connected to the internet and a server full of movies and shows for you to watch.
Free Secure WiFi is also available throughout the building for you to use. Just ask us for the password when you arrive.
We also provide sheets and towels, so you just need to bring the soap :)
We live downstairs, so we are usually around if you need any help and advice or just to hang out and chat with.
We run a laid-back smoke friendly house.
You are given access to the front door, so you are welcome to come and go as you please.
All we ask is that you keep the noise and music down to a minimum late at night for the sake of our neighbours and other guests.
Enjoy your stay and if there is anything that we can do for you, please feel free to ask.
We had a great time at Allan's.
Althoug we didn´t met him, we were welcomed by Martin and he was very helful so we felt really comfortable there.
The location of the house is really good, in front of a canal and just a few minutes from the city centre by walking, tram or bike.
The only objection for me was the toilet, which is in the ground floor and the bedroom was upstairs.
Anyway, we really enjoyed, thank you for everything!
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Sehr sehr nettes Team ! Martin hat uns mit dem haus und den Zimmern vertraut gemacht ! Wenn man fragen hat, werden diese höflich mit einem lächeln beantwortet ! Auch sämtliche Karten für Museen usw bekommt man einfach auf Anfrage umsonst bei Allan ! Wer ein Super reines und akribisch saubereres Zimmer sucht, sollte dementsprechend mehr zahlen und in ein Hotel gehen ! Für diesen Preis war das Preis Leistungsverhältnis völlig ok und ausreichend ! Das einzige was etwas gestört hat, war der laute Regen in unserem Zimmer. Denn es gibt kein richtiges Dach, sondern eher ein Dach aus einer Plastik-Decke. Wer also einen leichten Schlaf hat sollte Ohropax einstecken ;)
allan hace que te sientas como en casa desde que (website hidden) situacion de la casa es ideal para visitar toda amsterdam, todo esta (website hidden) habitacion es perfecta tiene todo lo necesario ordenador con conexion y con altavoces para verte algo cuando llegues despues de todo el dia paseando por esta maravillosa ciudad.el baño esta muy cuidado!!!
Allan's friend, Martin, help us with the checkin process. Some hiccups at first but all was solved within minutes.
Martin is very easy-going and nice to talk with.
There is a pc in our room, we used it to listen to some music, internet surfing and photo transfer, very convenient.
We have a shared bathroom but no one is using it most of the time.
They have dogs and cat and it's very fun to play with them after a tiring day of walking.
One small issue is that there is noise(water droplets) created on the roof of our room during rainy days. Might not be ideal for light sleeper.
Grazie Allan e Martin per l'ospitalità, la cordialità e la simpatia. Un salto indietro negli anni 70 per respirare suoni, colori ed odori di un tempo trascorso a creare e sperimentare, un viaggio nel viaggio. Il nostro soggiorno è stato molto piacevole, la location è fantastica per esplorare la città, il quartiere e l'ambiente circostante sono davvero confortevoli. Bici e tessere per musei in omaggio, suggerimenti per ristoranti, musei, esperienze e caffè vari, ma più di tutto abbiamo gradito il molto tempo passato nella lounge room con il proprietario ed il suo staff a confrontarci su esperienze di vita più o meno mistiche e divertenti. Grande qualità dei prodotti locali consumati. Alcune stanze sono in rifacimento (onestamente ne hanno bisogno, così come alcuni servizi igienici) e non vediamo l'ora di tornare per approfittare nuovamente di questo luogo. Posto adatto a tutti, notevole il senso di libertà e condivisione, necessita di un pò di spirito di adattamento (molto, a tratti) e soprattutto di una certa apertura mentale...!!! Grazie Allan, ci vediamo presto.

As travellers ourselves, we have decided to open our house to like-minded people looking for an alternative to the traditional Hotel and B&B. We try to provide a more personal and local experience by creating a home away from home. Come and travel like a local.
