We had a fantastic stay. The flat does absolutely correspond to the description made and is not only very well situated but clean, cosy and tastefully decorated.
We had not the chance to meet with Roelof personally as he was abroad, but a very friendly Dani welcomed us at the flat to proceed with the check in and details.
Roelof has been very responsive and proactive throughout the whole process (before our stay and during it) ensuring that we had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. He gave us infos about nice restaurants in the area, and there are quite a lot to explore. We appreciated the fact that it isn't a very touristy area (although very close to the center and city attractions) so you have the feeling to be part of the real life!
The lovely cat Poe is a frequent visitor of the place, so I wouldn't recommend the flat to someone who is allergic to cats.
For everything else, I wold absolutely recommend the place if you are visiting Amsterdam. Thanks Roelof, it has been a very positive experience. Many happy rentings!
Had a wonderful weekend in Roelof's place. Beautiful and light place in a very cool neighborhood. Strongly recommend!
Really nice apartment in a lovely area. Roelef's friend welcomed us as Roelef was away and Roelef's communication was great before and during stay. Would recommend the Back Door Rotteserie round the corner, the old tram depot and breakfast at The Breakfast Club! Thanks Roelef! Sad our little trip is over.
by far, the best experience i've had with airbnb.
the apartment is located just a bit off the center, a 5min tram ride to anywhere in the city. the apartment itself was perfect, really good vibes and positive energy, fully equipped with anything you can think of, and cliche' as it may sound, it really did feel like a home to us.
Roelof, the host, was super responsive, provided tons of useful information about the area, and generally did everything he could to make us feel comfortable. Surely, He was a major factor in the overall great experience.
would definitely recommend this listing to anyone, and cant wait to go back there myself on my next trip to Amsterdam.
one last thing that has to be said, as a bonus, this place has the best sofa in the city :) makes it hard to leave the house and go places.
i give it a 10/10 - highly recommended.
We had a brilliant stay at Roelof's apartment. Great location and the apartment itself was perfect. The communication from Roelof was great and there was lots of information provided about the surrounding area.
We couldn't have had a better experience than we did at Roelof's flat in Amsterdam! He was super accommodating of our last minute request and of adding on another night. He gave us excellent and easy to follow directions from the train and many recommendations of places to go in the area. His flat was clean and cozy and in a really great area in walking distance to many excellent cafés-- not to mention the incredible food hallen (huge indoor food market) just around the corner. We loved it so much we extended our stay!
Roelof was amazingly responsible with everything. The place is exactly as described - very spacious and cozy. The area was also quite nice - quiet but not so far away from the center. I would definitely recommend this place.
