Booked this cozy place for a week of study 'Nederlands' in order to be in touch while staying in this great city.
Rob and Marcel were very kind and friendly welcoming hosts! Room was spotless, tidy and quiet, the breakfast did not miss a single thing and should be copied by many greater hotels I have stayed in so far ;-)
Location was perfect within Jordaan and when I had questions about anything , Rob and Marcel were always at hand and eager to help. Rob is the best 'homework-help-at the very last minute-at breakfast-before class'.
Hope to come back soon.

The best ones!! Nice and clean room, confortable bed and shower. The best part was breakfast, with a lot of juice, jam, pancakes, breads.... Robert cooks a lot, it´s really delicious and good for the ones that want to explore Amsterdam a holy day. Location was great too, near Anne Frank house and Dam square. We spent few days there, wanna come back as soon as possible! So sorry for the parrot =/
The best way we could summarize this two day stop in two sentences is this way: Location, location, location! And Marcel and Robert were above and beyond the call of duty in helping us enjoy our stay. The apartment is, as described, at the top of four flights of stairs. The apartment is very clean, modern and beautiful It is about 100 meters from a tram stop that is three stops from Centraal Station as described in the directions. The train from the airport was, as described, inexpensive and efficient. The apartment is also less than 200 meters from the Anne Frank Huis. When we needed a reservation made and printed, Robert helped us with this at the gallery he and Marcel own. Robert not only prepared for us an ample and somewhat made to order breakfast, each day, after we chose the time we wanted to eat, he and Marcel joined as at their very lovely dining table. I do not want to favor Robert and appear to overlook Marcel. Marcel was not feeling totally well. He is a bit quieter, but his dry humor is most enjoyable. Throughout, they made us feel comfortable and wanted with very thoughtful gestures. We really loved our stay, were sad when we left, but invited them stay with us if they ever travel near us in the USA.
We just flew back to the US yesterday and had an amazing time in Amsterdam. Robert & Marcel were fantastic hosts, and their place is in the ideal location to everything. Everything is within walking distance and close to cute shops, DAM square, grocery stores, restaurants and cafes, trams, museums..really everything! Bike rental places are close by too and a must-do for the true Amsterdam experience. Robert started the day with his legendary breakfasts, which made you feel like you were at a 5-star restaurant, except you can eat in your pajamas! They were delicious and filling and we only needed a snack to tie us over until dinner. Robert loves learning about his guests and makes you feel right at home. He is funny, sincere, gracious and very helpful in helping you get settled in and making the most of your stay in the city. A fabulous host and would HIGHLY recommend staying with him & Marcel during your stay in Amsterdam!
We loved staying at Marcel and Robert's place! They are very nice and we had a wonderful breakfast overthere. They have a super cute parrot! The location is perfect. We could not have a better Airbnb first experience! Thank you :)
Robert and Marcel have a beautiful apartment. They go above and beyond to provide a comfortable room with lovely bedding and lots of fresh towels. Additionally, Robert cooks up a gourmet breakfast to your specifications and is also wonderful company. The apartment is classically Dutch and in an ideal location. This was by far my best airbnb experience to date and I would recommend this apartment to anyone.
Marcel & Robert are 2 very friendly open minded friends of mine.
Robert is the best cook i know. His indonesian dishes and cakes are worldfamous. (Ask him about his carotcake)
Marcel and i both work in the art business and enjoy visiting art fairs.
I think you can not have better hosts if you want to explore the real Amsterdam.
They know the best nightlife, galeries and restaurants.
There house is so cosy, you will feel directly at home the minute you come in.
If i was a tourist i would definitely stay at there place! (not only for the carotcake(-;)
If you're looking for a great time, friendly hospitality, very good knowledge of Dutch culture, history and nightlife, excellent mouth-watering food, and a place to stay right in the center of Amsterdam, then look no further. Robert and Marcel are the best, most open-minded and caring hosts you can imagine. Whether it's a cultural visit or a non-stop party weekend, they can cater for any public.
