Interaction with Guests


I am an experienced host and I will be there for you whenever needed.

So far I have had a lot of good experiences with my guests.

The Neighborhood


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, canal boats and bicycle rent shops are around the corner.

Getting around

Getting there and away:

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

  • Manuel was an amazing host who was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of insider tips about the city. The apartment was very clean and large enough to comfortably accommodate our group of six. The location couldn't be better for tourists as it's within walking distance of everything!

    Overall, a great experience!

  • Manuel is a really easygoing host. We had a slightly awkward booking arrangement with him which he was happy to accommodate. He also pointed out some restaurants and places to visit during Kings Day which was great :)

    The apartment was really nice and well-situated. Very clean and spacious, with all the facilities we would need. The apartment was located about 4 minutes walk from the central square so it was very easy to move around and explore. Thank you very much for having us :)

  • We had a wonderful stay in Amsterdam in Manuel's flat. Manuel made sure that everything went very smoothly. The flat is very central, very well located so that we could walk to all the major points of interest. It is very quiet. We felt it was like being home. We would highly recommend it!!

  • We were a group of 6 (3 men / 3 women) and we had a wonderful time in Amsterdam and especially at Manuels place! He was just an incredible great host. We had no worries at any time and could ask him as much as we wanted without annoying him ;) He was available by phone/mail/airbnb 24/7 and also flexible with check-in and check-out. Every contact I had with Manuel was uncomplicated. The place is just awesome and . Everything is reachable within walking distances of 5-10 minutes. If we would ever repeat our journey as a group to Amsterdam we would definitely ask Manuel again if we could stay at his place!

  • We were 7 people staying at Manuel's apartment, which was very central in a quite side street and adequately clean. Everything was very comfortable and Manuel was very accommodating with our various check-in, check-out times and always available for communication.

    There was good Wifi and washing machine available, iron and hairdryer. I would stay there again!

  • The apartments are lovely: clean, spacious, well furnished and comfortable.

    The location is almost in the center of the old city. All major attractions in walking distance. There are lots of bars, coffeeshops nearby. Red Light district just a few minutes away. You can reach Dam or Museum square easily.

    Manuel is very helpful and friendly host. He met us upon arrival, show us the apartment and gave advice on what-to-see in the city.

    Manuel answered quickly and informatively on my questions during the stay. This help us a lot, 'cause we was in Amsterdam for the first time. We were pleased with our stay. I would recommend this to everyone who want to stay at quiet location in the center of the city.

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!
