Introduction

Welcome to my new listing. I recently (beginning of november 2012) moved from east Amsterdam to the city center. Note that some of my reviews are based on my previous home!

The place and room I am offering now are uniquely situated in the historical heart of Amsterdam. I am an experienced host that lives in the same apartment, meaning that I will be there for you whenever needed. If your are searching for a private stay, a stay where you can interact with locals or maybe just get introduced to some of Amsterdam hotspots, then I can be a great host for you.

Location

My new 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 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

Bathroom & Toilet

Shared toilet and bathroom on the second floor. The bathroom is spacious with a separate bath and shower.

Home

The first floor is my studio and has its own entrance. The second floor has two bedrooms which are available for airbnb guest that are searching for a private room. To make your stay in my home a good
experience for both of us I would like to inform you about two thing that are really important to me. First
of all direct communication; if there is anything that you want me to know, ask or something that bothers
you, please let me know. Trust is also a key value for me. I for example decided not to put any locks on the
rooms as I believe in mutual respect of each other’s space and belongings.

Host

So far I have had a lot of good experiences with my guests. In my new listing I hope to be able to create a similar vibe and meet lots of interesting people from all over the world.

I am an easygoing and very 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 7 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.

To become a better host I recently got my First Aid Certification. Also I guarantee your money back if you don’t like my place upon arrival. No questions asked from my side.

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!

  • My Experience with my host Manuel was more that i could have asked for. Right from the second i emailed i got an instant response (my booking was for the next night). Could not have asked for more of a welcoming place to land at such short notice. The room was fantastic, an excellent rate with the russian roulette game i came off a winner thats for sure. I was well cared for by Manuel, he def deserves his super host status!!! The bath tub was amazing as was him saving me from myself in the kitchen with a nice home cooked meal. I wish i stayed longer.

  • MANUEL WAS SO NICE!

    We arrived late and he greeted us kindly. Say with us to help us figure out our dilemma with a few things. Gave us some suggestions and also took us to a fantastic Italian restaurant.

    His place is located centrally near the red light district. I slept like a baby. We have shared bathrooms but my brother and I each had our own Bed in a private room. Very comfortable! It felt clean and the price was good. Would DEFINITELY stay here again!

  • It's my first stay via Airbnb, and was very successful. Very nice, friendly and calm, overall it was a very good experience to stay in Manuel's House. The room is well equipped and a really nice location. You can reach almost every hot places in 15 minutes through walk. And conversation with Manuel's father was really good. If i could be Amsterdam again, I will definitely stay in Manuel's home.

    July 2013
  • Very clean place. Best location in the city. Manuel's house has all comforts of home. Also he is very easy to communicate with and was quick to respond to all my questions. When I come back I will stay here. I hope to have more experiences like this on AirBnB, though Manuel has set the bar quite high.
