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).
Other Things to Note
I am a professional and run a legitimate business, that means I comply with city regulation regarding accommodation rental, pay Tourist Tax and other taxes.
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.
We provide bed linen and towels. For longer stays bed linnen is changed weekly (with cleaning of the apartment), towels are changed twice weekly, or more often on request.
The apartment is very well located, it was really helpful when a sudden rain catches you without an umbrella. We also really liked that it is on the ground floor so it is very convinient for travellers. There are a lot of handy equipment in the apartment, like coffee machine and dishwasher. The furniture was nice and cozy. We were met by Hugo's assistant right on time and he showed us the flat and handed the keys. It could be a little bit more light in the apartment, but in case you dont stay at home much time, it is not a problem. We would love to stay there again when we visit Amsterdam!
Hugo was available quickly on the email and was very helpful. The apartment is nicely located and has all what you could need on a short stay. Steps away from the Metro it is also ideally located to arrive from the airport. We were on what was probably the hottest day in years (38 degrees or so) and it was very warm, but I guess it was hard to find a place colder at that time.
Awesome house! Perfect for a couple. Very central, everything is reached in 25-40mins by feet. Hugo is very helpful, I got my check-in at 9am... he saved me to have accepted it.
I would like to meet you Hugo, when I will return to AMS (maybe for job ;) )
We had such a nice welcome in Hugo house, with some wonderful local biscuit and all the necessary needed for our stay.
The nice weather was with us too during our 3 days stay!
The location was just perfect, very central, near everything.
The flat was really clean and tidy as the description and pictures.
The indications gave by Hugo to find the place were very accurate, we found it without problem and very quickly.
Hugo was helpful and gave us other tips during our stay. Amsterdam is such a wonderful city, we enjoyed it by walk and by bike too.
Thank you Hugo for everything, we hope to come back soon.
Hugo was very friendly and welcoming, and had us settled into the apartment in no time. His place is so beautiful and in the most amazing central location with everything you could need right on your doorstep.
Would highly recommend Hugo as a host, and of course his place, to anyone wanting a great self catered experience in Amsterdam.
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
The apartment is great. It looks just like the photos and is in a fantastic location. We loved that we were within walking distance from everything we wanted to see. The private entrance was great, meaning that we didn't have to worry about disturbing anyone when we came in.
We really enjoyed our stay here and Hugo was a great host. He was very accommodating and approachable. We can't wait to come back and stay again.
