El anfitrión nos fue a buscar al aeropuerto , ese fue un gesto muy amable y simplifico nuestra llegada. El apartamento era amplio, en un principio éramos tres y luego fuimos 4 y el andutrion no nos hizo ningún tipo de problema. Estaba bien ubicado, a unas cuadras del centro . Se podía ir caminando sin problema , si no contabas con transporte público muy cerca. Recomendable!
Meindert was a nice host, picking us up from the airport around 9pm and showing the apartment. The apartment has a lot of space, a well equipped kitchen, washing and drying machine and good WiFi. It takes about 40min on foot to reach the center of Amsterdam.
The only negative point was the cleanliness — we had clean sheets and towels but the flat was lacking a general cleaning... anyhow, we definitely recommend it.
Meindert was friendly, helpful, and welcoming from the very beginning. He answered my many questions prior to booking very promptly. Meindert was even willing to pick us up from the airport but unfortunately we weren't able to make use of this very kind gesture as we came to Amsterdam by train. The apartment felt just like home and was very roomy. Our family of four felt very comfortable for the two weeks we were in Amsterdam. Our teenage kids slept on the sofa bed in the lounge/kitchen while us parents enjoyed the massive bedroom, and super comfortable bed. The flat is close enough to walk to most places, but the No. 4 Tram is only a few minutes walk away. It will take you directly to Central Station, and visa versa. The kitchen is suitable to make basic meals (we cooked every night), and the washing machine and dryer just outside the door (shared with another apartment), worked extremely well. The shower was great - plenty of hot water and good pressure! There are 60 very steep stairs to the penthouse apartment (no lift), which could be an issue for people with limited mobility, but we found that it added character to the experience - after all Amsterdam is renowned for steep stairs!
There is a large supermarket at the end of the street, but FYI this one does not take credit card. Further up the main road, (going further away from town, and over the canal) is a supermarket that does accepts credit card.
Wifi was excellent!
Would most definitely, highly recommend.
Everything was excellent. Meindert was kind enough to pick us up at the airport, and take us there for the departure. The apartment is very comfortable and cozy, in a nice area. It is a bit far from the city center, however it's a nice walk until there :)
We had a wonderful experience staying in this glorious appartment! Meindert was a great host he provided good info and had a great travellers guide for is to borrow. De Pijp is a great area in Amsterdam filled with good restaurants and cafés. It super easy to get to the city on the tram or by foot if you feel like a nice stroll through this beautiful city. The apartment is well equipped for all your needs and has a bright and cosy feel. All in all it was the best place we've stayed on our trip so far!
Abbiamo avuto un tempo meraviglioso a casa di Meindert e posso consigliare vivamente di soggiornare qui. L'appartamento è brillante. Molto spazioso, moderno, tranquillo e pulito. La posizione è molto vantaggiosa. La zona dove si trova l'appartamento è molto sicuro e tranquillo. Il tram si ferma 5 minuti a piedi dalla casa e va direttamente alla Stazione Centrale e il centro città. Con Meindert non c'è stato l'onore di vedersi ma è stato molto gentile a farci venire a prendere al nostro arrivo all'aeroporto ed sempre disponibile.. Grazie Meindert.
El apartamento está correcto y bien situado, a unos 25 minutos andando de los museos de Vangogh, rijks y del Concertgebow. Del centro de Amsterdan está a unos 40 minutos andando pero está la linea 4 del tranvía que tiene parada en la calle de al lado. En la esquina de la calle hay un supermercado que abre hasta las 10 de la noche. Meindert es un anfitrión de primera, habla español, te viene a buscar al aeropuerto y un día quedamos con el y pasamos una tarde estupenda ya que es también un buen conversador.
The apartment was great: it was a nice and posh place. Everything went in the best way and Mr. Fennema is a really kind person. If you want spend your holidays in Amsterdam you HAVE TO choose Fennema's apartment.
It was really comfortable stay for family. A lot of space, quiet surrounding, friendly host. What else do you need ?
L'appartement de Meindert est tout à fait conforme à l'annonce, très bien situé, dans un quartier calme avec les commerces à proximité. On peut se rendre à pied au centre mais le plus simple et le plus rapide est le vélo, le loueur est à deux pas de l’appartement. Un grand merci à Meindert pour son accueil, ses conseils et ses services.
Just the perfect hosts. Easy, friendly and apparently a happy family !
Everything happened without any problem. Meindert left the house like he found it.
