I'm a freelance fashion designer that likes to travel, eat out, see a movie, spend time with friends and family and enjoy life as much as possible.
Inkea's apartment is absolutely beautiful. High ceilings and the modern decor make it a great space to retreat back to and relax in after a long day exploring Amsterdam. The location is good, a short tram ride or walk out of central Amsterdam, with a local market open most days. Inkea was very helpful and quick to reply, her cleaner, Shirley, was there to meet us when we arrived. We loved our visit and would love to stay again and recommend this space to our friends!
The apartment was lovely, modern, spacious and plenty of natural light coming in! Wifi and tv both working. Location was fine, its away from the NEON lights of central dam however it is easy to tram or walk to the centre. There is a nice cafe near the entrance. We didnt meet inkea in person but any questions were answered promptly!
The host canceled this reservation 80 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Due to several misbehaving guest I had to cancel further reservations to make peace with my very unhappy neighbours.
The apartment was neat and comfortable with everything one might need. The neighbourhood was average, felt a little unsafe walking around at night at times, but great eating spots and tram close by.
Inkea was a good host, always repsonding timeously and accomodating with check in times.
It was not immediately obvious how to get into the apartment. It is a purple door next to the corner shop. Hopefully the host has now put a name there so you know which button to press.
We arrived at the original appointed time to find the host's housekeeper had only just arrived to clean it from previous tenants so were obliged to go away for a further two hours while she did so. The host has assured us that this will not happen again. Nor will the apartment be draped in wet laundry and you won't be asked to hang out their washing or empty their dishes from the dishwasher as we were asked to do.
The location was great and the apartment was modern, spacious and clean. We had no hot water for showering one morning, but this has apparently been fixed.
Apart from those problems we were very happy with communication with our host and with Airbnb support.
This flat is incredible! Communication with Inkea was perfect - she was prompt and courteous in every aspect. From her quick response (within minutes) of booking to her details on how to get to the apartment and how to collect the key, she went above beyond our expectations. Inkea even let us 'check in' a little early and leave our bags, even though the flat was not completely ready for us.
The flat itself is exactly as described (although the pictures don't do it justice). The high ceilings, stylish furniture and great views of the neighborhood make it the perfect couple's getaway in Amsterdam. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bath was a perfect way to unwind after exploring the city! The full kitchen (with range, oven, fridge/freezer, and even a dishwasher!) is cozy and convenient. Don't let the steep steps deter you! They may seem daunting at first, but you quickly get used to them.
Finally, the neighborhood is the ideal location in Amsterdam. Oud West is not in the center, so you will have to walk or take the tram to get to most of the sights. This is actually preferable, as nothing is too far (10 min. tram ride, 25 min walk to the center), and you can 'escape' to your trendy neighborhood at the end of the day. The area is very diverse and full of fun bars and restaurants - we loved the Foodhallen right around the corner.
Overall, an amazing trip. Absolutely nothing bad to say about Inkea's place!
We very much enjoyed our stay in Inkea's apartment in Oude West Amsterdam. The stairs to the third floor were steep and dark, but we were welcomed by the apartment's bright, spacious, modern interior--beautifully renovated, and the bonus of a corner apartment. The neighbourhood has lots of shops and cafes, including a great supermarket--Albert Heijn--just 2 blocks away on Kinkerstrasse, and a daily market with lots of fresh food vendors just a block away--perfect! The tram 17 from Central Station stops just a block away on Kinkerstrasse, and you can access most of the inner city on foot. A great base for exploring!
We've had a great time at this wonderful apartment. Central location and quiet neighbourhood. Clean and modern interior with a great kitchen and bathroom. We enjoyed soaking in the bath after a day exploring the city. Fresh fruit, vegetables and bread are available within a stones throw at the local market in Ten Kate Straat (open daily except Sundays). The "feel food" restaurant on the ground floor sells beautiful vegetarian food. De Hallen, close by (entrance in Ten Kate Straat) gives you the opportunity to try different eateries under one roof, highly recommended. We would love to stay here again on our next visit to Amsterdam.
Excellent apartment. Very clean. Awesome communication. Tour guides and maps are there ready for you. Shirley the keyholder was very friendly. Absolutely no problems with this apartment. If this is your first time in Amsterdam remember that most of if not all of the houses have very steep stairs and this place is on the third floor. Overall excellent value for money and close to easy to use public transport. Free wifi was a fantastic bonus.
Inkea was traveling, so she made arrangements for her cleaning lady, Shelly, to meet us. Yes indeed, the stairs are steep, but the apartment was great. The bed is comfortable, the kitchen, living and bathroom were as pictured. We especially enjoyed the nice big bathtub. The location is very convenient to the Rijkstad and Van Gogh museums, and right off a tram stop. The open market "Ten Kate" is right around the corner. I would happily recommend this apartment.
Inkea and her niece were very easy to host. They were on time, easy to communicate and they looked after everything well,I'd recommend them to other hosts without hesitation.
Inkea and her boyfriend were great guests. They left the apartment in excellent condition. We would be happy to host them again.
Inkea was a lovely guest- prompt, communicative and very considerate. The flat was left in immaculate condition. We would be happy to have her back any time
Everything was perfect. Communication with Inkea was quick and couteous. I found my apartment clean and tidy. Hope to see you soon!
Inkea was a perfect guest. Very reactive to any message, she sent me a confirmation e-mail the day before she arrived. Very friendly and sweet, she left the place spotless. I would host her anytime again.
