The whole stay was totally brilliant from start to finish. Riks was incredibly accommodating - the booking, communication, the arrival and check in, the tour of the kitchen, the breakfast, the room.... everything was thought of and prepared for our comfort! Riks made us feel so welcome on arrival with a lovely chinwag (we covered nice areas of Amsterdam to visit, fashion industry and businesses!) and he recommended a local restaurant which we went to the following night and loved (Harlem on Haarlemmerstraat). The room was exactly as described, beautifully furnished, cosy and comfortable. I have made it my go-to place to stay at when visiting Amsterdam, so thank you Riks.
Riks was a great host and the space was great for my friends and me. If I make it back to Amsterdam I'd love to stay at Riks' place again!
Location and breakfast is good; central station, shops and restaurants are all near the apartment, Riks is nice and willing to answer our questions; no elevator, hard to pick the baggages to second floor, room size is not big enough to open two baggages together.
This lovely Canalhouse is perfectly situated on the border between Amsterdam's vibrant city centre and the charming relaxed streets of the Jordaan. It was surprisingly quiet and peaceful there at all times of day, even when you're less than a minute's walk away from the bustling nightlife.
The Canalhouse itself is beautifully presented, full of character and personal touches. It genuinely felt like I was a guest in a friend's home. The communal kitchen/dining area works extremely well, with a great array of breakfast food and drink supplied. The other upside of the communal dining is that we got to talk to the other guests, which was one of the highlights of our holiday. Definitely a perfect place to stay for the sociable.
Riks himself is the perfect host - charming, friendly and very knowledgable of the area. This was our first time using AirBnB and he helped make everything run as smooth as possible from the moment we booked the room.
Amsterdam is one of our favourite cities and I know we'll be back, and Riks' Canalhouse will be my first choice of a place to stay.
We stayed in a room at the top floor of the BnB. The room itself was small but perfectly fine for two people without tons of luggage. Hot shower with good water pressure and a super comfortable bed! The breakfast is fine, and the kitchen is huge. A really great location. I would recommend this place !
Nous avons très bien été reçues par Riks, l'appartement est excellemment bien situé : à 5 minutes à pied de la gare. Très serviable, Riks nous a fait visiter l'appartement et nous a expliqué les règles de vie. Proches de tout, nous avons pu découvrir de nombreux endroits magnifiques, entre le quartier rouge et les places plus calmes.
Toutefois, afin d'améliorer encore la qualité de l'hébergement (même si celle ci était déjà excellente), la disposition d'une pièce uniquement dédiée aux valises serait superbe afin de pouvoir profiter pleinement de la journée de départ (car les vestiaires pour les valises à la gare se font très rares cette période).
En résumé : excellent séjour, excellent endroit pour dormir, excellent emplacement, il ne manque plus qu'un local pour y laisser les valises, et ce serait parfait :)
Merci à Riks en tout cas :)
Riks war supernett, hilfsbereit und unkompliziert.
Die Unterkunft lieg ideal für Unternehmunge zu Fuß in Amsterdam.
Jederzeit wieder gene bei Riks!
Riks was a lovely guy, who always responded very quickly to any emails! His place is great! A typical old grachten huis, right next to the water. Amazing location, close to everything! The rooms are small, but have all one needs for a few days in this wonderful city! The communal kitchen was also very nice, good way to have a chat to the other visitors! Although I could have done without the French ladies, who thought it was a good idea to grace us in their pajamas and that 'just got out of bed' look... Oh well, that's life in the big smoke, I guess! ;)
All in all, we had a great time!!!
I have been telling all my friends about it and we would come and stay again in a heartbeat!
Die Zeit in Amsterdam war sehr schön.Die Wohnung war super.
Great room perfectly located in the heart of Amsterdam. Riks is very helpful and a great host, he indicated some nice places to visit and was there when needed, really appreciated that.
Having a (very!) full breakfast with such a view on the Canals was uniquely amazing.
I can only recommend this room for a weekend in Amsterdam!
Riks stayed at my place for a week, he was a great guest, friendly, neat and responsible guy. I highly recommend Riks as a guest and he is always welcome back at my place in Tel-Aviv:)
