Interaction with Guests
Send me a message if you have any questions. This offer is an experiment and I am really hoping that I will be having great guests that are flexible, relaxed and have an open/positive attitude.

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.

Other Things to Note
Every penny of this listing will be placed in an fund for my niece Lucia. I am her godfather and therefor I would like to save up something that she could use when she hits 18 years old. She is 4 years old now :)
Trust and respect are very important for me. As host I am easy going and not difficult to interact with. But I do ask to communicate any question or issues you might have. To make your stay as comfortable possible I will ask you to follow these two 'rules':
- Be honest, If there is something on your mind please just tell me.
- Have respect for the fellow AirBnB'er, my neighbors and the host. :)
- Do not smoke in the house!
Had a great 3 days in Amsterdam, and Manuel was a very welcoming host. He was very accommodating, given my last minute request, providing everything you'll need to feel at home. He's also quick to respond to any queries and was an overall enthusiastic host.
His place itself was very comfy, no matter if you get lucky or unlucky playing the Russian roulette ;). Location wise, it's located in the heart of Amsterdam Centraal, perfect for those that want to explore the city, visiting museums and other attractions. Amsterdam Centraal is also within walking distance, so traveling anywhere else is easy.
Manuel was a great host, flexible, available, accommodating and passionate about his city. I played Russian Roulette and won!
The room was very quiet, bed was very comfortable, heater was strong and in general a very cozy atmosphere. The bathroom was modern with good heat and water pressure and everything was spotless / super clean ! The internet was fast and had a very strong signal.
The location of the flat was also ideal... It was very quiet and felt very safe, while being only a few blocks from all the action. Definitely one of the best value AirBnB's I've had the pleasure of experiencing!
Great place to stay! Thank you Manuel for your kindness, and hospitality! I wish I could stay longer, and get to know you better! The room is also very comfortable, bed, bathroom, towel... Very clean! I definelty recommand this address, and Manuel will be a great host! I'll come back Manuel:) see you!
Super warm and relaxed guy who generously invited me to tag along for dinner and a game of pool with his friend. The ideal Airbnb experience.
I had a wonderful time staying with Manuel, its a shame I didnt get to spend longer there. Hes an incredibly friendly and helpful host with an awesome place to stay. I slept better on that bed than i do in my own bed! I'd definitely recommend you stay here if visiting Amsterdam. The location is brilliant and its easy to access everything. Upon booking Manuel sends you a guide to the apartment, local places to eat, best way to get there etc - its so well thought out he genuinely is the best host I've stayed with
I had a great experience! Manuel's apartment is right in the center of Amsterdam, walking distance from many of the attractions I wanted to see. Manuel is friendly and welcoming. He went out of his way to make me feel comfortable in his home. I would highly recommend him, and not hesitate to stay again were I to revisit Amsterdam.
A note about the Russian Roulette: When I found the listing, I was hesitant at first, but I had nothing to worry about. The first night I was in the studio with Manuel, but I still had plenty of space and privacy, since he moved his own bed to the kitchen to make room for me. Since the apartment is more C-shaped than square, I did not feel that I was sharing a room with a stranger. For my second night I was able to move to one of the bedrooms upstairs, which was very nice. :)

About the Host, Manuel
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!
