The host canceled my reservation 20 days before arrival.
Cancelled my reservation the day before I was supposed to show up.
Gotta say that AirBnB as a company was MASSIVELY helpful in that situation.
Highly recommend booking through this company, DO NOT recommend booking with Lorraine.

No recomiendo para nada este lugar. La persona que lo alquila no vivi en Amsterdam sino en Alemania, ha dejado a una amiga al cargo del piso, llego 30 minutos tarde para darnos la llaves, en verano nos daria igual pero a 3 grados bajo cero se pasa mucho frio esperando en la calle.
Cuando llego se puso a limpiar el piso(que estaba guarrisimo) paso la aspiradora y nos dijo que ya estaba limpio, cristales sucios, paredes, suelo baño, cocina todo muy sucio y solo pasa la aspirador, pero lo mas grave es que la calefacion no funcionaba y una de las dos ventanas que tiene el piso no cierra bien, asi que, sin calefacion y con corriente de aire, en invierno y con una temperatura bajo cero que hemos tenido durante estos dias por salud y comodidad no nos quedamos en el piso.
Nos hemos ido a buscar otro alojamiento y al ser sabado todo estaba lleno y perdimos todo un dia en encontrar alojamiento.
A Airbnb le he pedido que nos devuelvan el dinero, eso hace ya 5 dias y aun no tengo noticias de ellos.
En resumen, nos han fastidiado las vacaciones y nos hemos tenido que gastar mas del doble en alojamiento cuando ya lo teniamos pagado.
No recomiendo para nada este piso, y por la poca esperiencia tampoco esta web.
I do not recommend this place at all. The person who rents it did not live in Amsterdam but in Germany, has left a friend in charge of the flat, She arrived 30 minutes late to give us the keys, but in summer would give us equal to 3 degrees below zero spends a lot of waiting in the cold street.
When She began to clean the floor (which was so dirty) step cleaner and told us that it was clean, dirty windows, walls, floor, bathroom, kitchen all dirty and only passes the aspirator, but more serious is that the calefaction did not work and one of the two windows that had the floor does not close properly, so, without calefaction and drafty in winter and freezing temperatures we have had during these days for health and comfort we do not stay in the flat.
We have gone to find alternative accommodation and when everything was full Saturday and lost a whole day to find accommodation.
A Airbnb I have asked for our money back, this 5 days ago and I have not yet heard from them.
In summary, we have screwed up the holidays and we had to spend more than twice in accommodation when we had already paid.
I do not recommend for anything this floor, and the little EXPERIENCE not this website.
First off, great location. Easy access on foot to just about everything. Secondly, Lorraine's friend was very nice to accommodate our botched arrival and met us at the apartment to hand over the keys well after the appointed time.
The apartment itself was spartan at best and in need of a good cleaning. Cold and not very cozy with only one working heater you had to choose which room would be somewhat warm. The rooms were bare and did not really make you feel very comfortable just hanging out.
The apartment was very nice and had everything we needed. the location is a short walking distance to the centre; even in the Dutch winter the walk was nice. having our own kitchen and living room was great, and the hosts were very helpful and accomadating. the only thing was that there were no towels, but i had brought one. also the shower doesnt have a drain hole which could be problematic, but we didnt need it anyways. next time im in amserdam ill definately give this place another visit.
thanks for everything, we loved amderstam =)
super location - really just a stone's throw away from the beautiful old town. (be sure to visit Yam Yam pizza just around the corner - but book a table, it gets busy!). The flat was warm, but not like in the photos - rather bare and un-loved....and needs a spring clean!
the apartment is in a great location!very close to the city center and in a very cute (website hidden) was the perfect match for us!I think is ideal for couples and even families with a low budget.Thanks Lorraine!
I stayed here for a week and everything was great!!!
When we arrived,a friend of Lorraine welcomed us,showed us the place and gave us the keys.She was very kind and helpfull.The flat was clean,warm,in good condition and god bless the neighbors for sharing their wifi with us ;)
The neighborhood is really nice with supermarket nearby and a very beautifull five canal node behind the house.
We had a pleasant stay and i would be happy to stay again
