The apartment was dirty, extremely dirty. There were unwashed clothes and sheets of the owner and other things lying on the doors. Very messy everywhere.
Well commuicated by tram to the city center and with good technological kit: TV, PC, WiFi, ...Correct furniture and kitchen.
Landlord always in contact with us, friendly and available, with attention to solve any problem.
Not recommend for horrible situation (a lot of dirty) and cluttered.
I have send Antonio messages about bedsheets that were left to dry on the door. I apologised for that. He is in his right to complain about that. BUT:
The coordinator/cleaner of the house reassured me the apartment was left in the same state which was satisfactory for other guests. So I don 't get why he regarded it as extremely dirty. So apart from the hanging laundry (which was washed) it was not dirty or more untidy than usual.
The apartment was clean. It was a bit of a walk from the center, but not too bad. It was just what we needed.
Myself and two friends spent 3 days, 2 nights here. The place is great, exactly as portrayed in the photos/description. Furthermore, Joost is a very reasonable, very hands-off owner. Personally, I like that approach. Furniture/beds are comfortable, appliances all work, and everything is very clean and tidy.
Relative proximity to the city center is not a strong-point of this apartment, so a tram ride is necessary for those without a bicycle. However, the immediate surrounding area is pleasant and has some nice shops. Amsterdam, in general, is kind of a quiet city, and that tranquility is even greater in this area. Again, different people have different tastes, but I very much enjoyed it.
In conclusion, I highly recommend this apartment and this owner.
L’appartement est bien situé : dans une rue tranquille, proche de nombreux commerces et de lignes de tram qui mènent au cœur de la ville et au quartier des musées en très peu de temps. Il est suffisamment spacieux pour 3 ou 4 personnes et il est bien équipé. Situé au rez-de-chaussée, il n’est pas excessivement sombre ; quant à sa propreté, elle est à peu près satisfaisante. Enfin, Joost a été très aimable et s’est montré très réactif pour répondre à nos demandes.
Le séjour était parfait, nous étions très bien situé, loué un tandem 3 jours pour visiter cette formidable ville. Joost a été très sympa, nous ne l'avons pas vu mais très disponible. Appartement très propre, spacieux et accessible. Le jacuzzi doit être parfait en été ! je recommande
The flat was exactly as advertised: clean, comfortable, fresh and spacious! The location was great (Oud-West is a trendy area), with 1 tram taking us straight to city centre from a stop around the corner.
Joost was a wonderful host who accommodated us in every way possible. He gave us plenty of information when we arrived and was helpful throughout the stay. He keeps a very beautiful, well-maintained garden in which it is possible to relax after a long day of walking.
We hope Joost will be on vacation again the next time we visit Amsterdam, as we would definitely stay at his home again!
My friends and I had a great time staying at Joost's place. We haven't met but the organisation was perfect and we found the appartment clean and welcoming. So...nice host, nice place, nice location to visit the city...great week end! thx!
el departamento es comodo, lindo y limpio. el barrio esta cercano al centro, y la zona esta muy bien. eramos cuatro personas, dos dormimos en la cama matrimonial, un adulto comodamente ocupo el sillon del living y el cuarto un colcho en el piso, igualmente como la casa era bastante espaciosa, todo estuvo bien. lo recomendamos.
Everything was super-fine. The Appartement was ideal for us 3 guys with 2 of us sleeping in the living room. There is Computer, Kitchen ... we missed nothing. Tram, Supermarkets and Restaurants nearby. We had a funny meal at an african restaurant "klein Africa".
Organiziation an communication with Joost was super easy!!
Joost's apartment was perfect for me and my 3 friends. It had everything we needed and was in a cool area, also walking distance from the center. Communication with Joost before and during our stay was great as well.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
