Interaction with Guests
I live and work in the same canal house. So we are likely to run into each other once in a while. If there are any questions, simply ring my doorbell or call me on my mobile.
The New Market (Nieuwmarkt) area is the oldest part of town. It known for its China Town, the university, the many little restaurants and bars and unique range of specialty shops.
Central Station is a ten minute walk or a ride of 90 seconds with the Metro (stop: Nieuwmarkt).

Smoking is permitted in the apartment. Use of hard drugs is not tolerated.
The check in time is 2 PM. The check out time is 11 AM. Depending on other bookings I generally can be quite flexible.

Had an amazing stay at hugos! He was a great host very helpful, the place was perfect walking distance to everything hopefully I'll be back soon! x
Hugo's place was a great place to stay. Perfect location and size for a couple. Had anything and everything one could need for a weekend stay in Amsterdam. Would definitely recommend to a friend!
Overall experience was great! The room was exactly as pictured, clean and comfortable. The location was amazing!!! Walking distance from everything. Was so nice to be right on the canal and have direct access to the street. Hugo was very professional and helpful. I felt safe and secure knowing he was in the apartment right above incase we needed anything. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Amsterdam!
Pretty nice flat. Not so far from Jordaan or redlight district, but just enough to be quiet.
The charm of channels in front of our door... Really lovely
Hugo was just a perfect host, welcoming and friendly.
A place to be
Hugo and his apartment were the best! Hugo is super friendly, very informative, and makes himself available whenever he's needed. The apartment was fantastic and just what we needed after a long journey through London and Paris. It's a great size (very spacious for 2 people- Hugo makes great use of all space) , it was very clean, and Hugo provides everything you could need in the kitchen/bathroom areas. Perfect location for everything in Amsterdam. We would definitely recommend this place and will certainly be back to stay at Hugo's again! Thank you for everything.
Studio is over well situated. Close to the red light district, Chinatown, boat cruise operators and central station. A bicycle rental is also within walking distance. Hugo has a comprehensive manual with all the important information inside.
The apartment is comfortable that meet all the basic needs. However, the water heater looks like it needs some scrubbing before use, and being situated near to pubs means it can be quite noisy on weekend nights.
Thank you for this great apartment, it's located in the center of amsterdam and I really felt like a local ! Hugo let us check in sooner and check out later than in the description which was great. I would definitely take it again for my next visit !
