I'm a PhD student in Linguistics at the University of Amsterdam. I have been active on AirBnB since 2012, both as a guest and as a host, and have had nothing but positive experiences.
My boyfriend and I stayed with Jan for the weekend. He was a great host, very friendly, and was more than happy to help us at any time. Although his home is not right in the centre of the city, dont be put off at all, it was in a great location, so easy to get to with public transport and we were glad that we stayed a little out from the city in the end because the area around Jan's house is so lovely for a walk! I highly reccomend staying here!
It was very comfortable at Jans Apartment. Jan was also very friendly and helpful.
There is a nice Supermarket down the Street where bought fresh vegetables to cook in Jans well equipped kitchen. The walk or ride in to the city center ist not too far.
We had a very good time. Thank you Jan. :)
MUY cómodo, bien situado, espacioso apartamento, cerca del transporte público pero suficientemente cerca del centro como para ir andando.
Jan Willem is een heel aardige relaxte gastheer die snel reageert en voor je klaar staat. Het huis is netjes en schoon. Wil hem ook erg bedanken voor zijn gastvrijheid.
Even though we did not meet Jan personnally (his sister came to give us the key as he was out of town) we had a lovely stay in Amsterdam.
Plenty of nice bars and restaurant close to the appartment, even if the city center is a good 30/45 min walk ... by tram it only takes 15 min.
The appartment was nice, kitchen well equiped and very clean bathroom.
Thanks to the information left by Jan on the table helped us to find restaurants, bars, maps of the buses and tram .... and the lonely planet guide of Amsterdam we found our way quickly to all facilities.
Thank you very much.
This was the first time booking a place via Airbnb and it was a great experience. The area is nice and quiet, the apartment is close to the city center, there's a one minute walk to the closest tram station but would definitely recommend walking to the center. Supermarkets are also very close (less than 5 minutes).
We met Jan at arrival, he is a nice and helpful person, he made a cool guide to the house (e.g. how to use the washing machine) and area (e.g. supermarkets, pubs, public transport) and provided us with maps and LP guide. I was impressed by the attention he pays to small details. We were able to contact him or a friend of his at any time in case we needed anything.
It was a lovely and comfy place, would definitely book it again for any future trips to Amsterdam.
Jan's apartment was nice, the extra living space you get to yourselves is a bonus! And makes a difference as the bedroom is a little small. The area he is in is great and there is tram stops just outside his house running into the centre! And plenty of food choices and super markets!
Jan was very helpful from day one of booking his apartment, replying very promptly to our emails and giving us easy and very smooth instructions how to get to his apartment, also he left us plenty of information about the city including tram/bus times!
Thank you Jan!
We had a great stay in Jans apartment, it was perfectly situated for our time in Amsterdam. We didn't really cross paths very often, so it felt like the apartment was quite private. It's an easy walk into the centre, takes around half an hour, and the local park is fantastic. Thanks!
This was a really nice place! Jan was a friendly host who was very welcoming and helpful. The neighborhood is really great and transportation around the city was easy. Highly recommended!
We have really enjoyed our stay at Jan's place. We had the entire apartment for one week. The place is really great, well located (very close to the center by bike or tram), and Jan is a really nice host. We met only the day we left, but he was available at any time if there was a problem, and he was very flexible. I would definitely recommend !
De ouders van Jan Willem hebben met een aantal vrienden een weekend ons appartement gehuurd. Wat mij betreft zouden ze dit vaker mogen doen! Het appartement was erg schoon achtergelaten. al met al erg fijne gasten!
Jan was at my apartment during the Primavera Sound Festival. He is very kind and friendly. He is very respectful and he didn't make any noise when he arrived at night after the concerts. I also could realize that he is a very goog cook because he prepared a delicious dutch dish for his last night in Barcelona. He'll allways wellcome.
Jan is a very pleasant and nice guest. Organized clean and sympathic, he let us know in advance when he would arrive and everything with the organization went very well.
Jan- Willem is an ideal guest! He is super friendly and communicative! He left my room very clean which was fantastic! He is always welcome back at my home in Utrecht!
Un homme sympathique,discret,propre,le premier voyageur Néerlandophone chez moi après presque un an location chambre hôte.
Je suis originaire des Flandres Belge donc Néerlandophone.
De eerste Nederlandstalige gast,uitstekend!
Très sympathique personne, nous sommes ravi de les avoir logé, je les recommande vraiment à tous.
Selbständig und unkompliziert. Alles gut :)
Jan was very nice, and apparently enjoyed his stay ! :) He has kindness to wake not us up to his departure as we had forgotten to ask him what time he left and he was discreet and clean. We will be happy to have him again !
