Paloma’s flat was everything we needed for a short holiday break over New Year’s in Amsterdam. With all the basic amenities required for a short stay, it’s well located within a quiet neighbourhood – near the tram stop and with a nice variety of shops and restaurants in easy walking distance, plus the Albert Cuypmarkt only a minute away. Also very conveniently located for the Museumplein area, about 15 minute walk away. Fast response on communication, reliable directions and advice given regarding local area shops and services.
The appartment is lovely, the flat itself is quite old, but charming, and all is nicely arranged inside. There is everything you need for a short stay, the kitchen is nice to use for simple and quiet dinners at home, no oven though. The bedroom window looks directly onto the street so we were a little scared of the noise, but it was all very quiet night and day. Only the bathroom is tiny and not so practical, but ok for a few days.
The location is great, with the market round the corner and all transports available at short distance.
Host is quick to answer and very helpful.
Paloma's apartment is great, very clean and comfy! In the center of Pijp, really close to the Cuypmarket, and to the tram station.
We followed her advice for the breakfast, and we were not disappointed!
What a beautiful apartment! And in a great part of Amsterdam as well - lots of nice bars and restaurants and slightly away from the hubbub. I hope to come back again one day. Thank you very much.
Paloma's apartment certainly was very cozy. I felt very much at home and was glad have a nice place to come back to after a long day. Paloma was very helpful and concientious about the communication. Thanks, Paloma!
What a wonderful stay! Paloma was quick to respond to our questions and her home is in a great location with a comfortable bed, lovely private backyard and she even had some bread and cheese for us in the fridge. Access to Amsterdam Central Station was so easy/fast and plenty of restaurants/bars/etc very near her apartment, while still being on a quiet street so it was cozy. We would definitely stay here again!
This apartment is in great location, lively part of town. House is very old and the facilities are ok but not luxury, there's no oven for example. But very sympathetic and cosy place. I recommend also bike rental Ajax, very close to this place, with cargobikes to drive with children. Paloma is very friendly, helpful, wonderfull person!
it was great for us to stay in this lovely appartment.
there are lots of nice places near to it - a big market, lovely cafes, parks and so on. its not touristic or noble - wich we liked - we felt like normal amsterdam citizens.
paloma was very nice. everything went just so easy for us.
we would definitly recommend to stay in her apartment.
Paloma was definitely one of the best hosts I've encountered on Airbnb - she was very accommodating, very friendly, and just a really warm person. She met us at the apartment (which is a very easy and quick train+tram ride from AMS airport) and provided us with a lot of helpful info. More than that, my luggage was delayed and she tried to be as helpful as she could with getting things sorted out!
The apartment is great - ground floor so none of the narrow/windy staircases that you'd find in a lot of other Amsterdam apartments. It's basically exactly what you see in the photos - one large living space with a bedroom partioned off with a curtain. I slept on the sofa bed - although she warned me that if wouldn't be comfortable, it was no worse than any other sofa bed I've slept on!
The area nearby is great - fun market and tons of restaurants and little shops. I was there for a conference at the RAI which is an easy 10-15 minute walk.
I would highly recommend this apartment, and Paloma as a host!!
Palomas appartment is really very cozy and in a relaxed style. . It was very nice to meet Paloma , she is warm , wellcoming and discrete. The best thing is the location , in the middle of one of amsterdams nicest areas , but still very quiet inside .The garden gives a romantic touch !
Lots of nice restaurants and shops around . Walking distance to museum and concertgebouw. The kitchen is great to use . Bathroom and toilet are simple but ok .
I would love to stay there again .
very nice and open minded people.
gut guests to have in our 'farmhouse, obviously enjoyed their stay.
I've known Paloma for a long time; she has always been a very warm, bright person to me, with a great sense of humor. She always makes you feel right at home, and so does her house; it's filled with the exact same easy going warmness. Right in the hip neighborhood the 'Pijp', near the famous Albert Cuyp market, it's really hard not to notice the best spots of Amsterdam. You can stumble from the hippest bars to a restaurant, or alter your course to the main centre of Amsterdam. I highly recommend her apartment!
Hye, I wholeheartedly recommend Palomas' appartement. Paloma is reliable, the house is clean and cosy and especially in summer the garden offers a good hangout (bottle of white wine, comfortable chairs and music coming through the terrace doors - that kind of place, as I know from experience... ;) ). Besides that, living just around the corner on the Albert Cuypmarket -6 days a week the biggest market of Holland- I can tell you this lively neighborhood has a lot to offer.
I hope you will enjoy Amsterdam, kind regards, Paulus
Paloma is a dear friend I know for many years. She is a very warm, positive and cheerful person. Paloma traveled a lot around the world. She has a lovely apartment in a cute Amsterdam street surrounded by cafes, restaurants (email hidden)ly street market three blocks away. Despite being in the middle of central Amsterdam, the apartment is quiet, with a big garden to enjoy sunny afternoons. You will feel most welcome visiting her and her place!
Paloma is a good friend of mine for years. I know her as a very charming woman who is very caring and loving for her friends. She will be a great host for you, since she knows everything in Amsterdam and will give you loads of advice. She will be very helpful and make sure you will have a great stay in the beautiful city of Amsterdam.
