Love design, staying active and meet new people!
First impressions of the neighbourhood were amazing. Placed in a beautiful, quiet part of the city with a nice big grassed quad, a park near by, boulangerie and superstore 5 minute walk away, it wad ideal. The#9 tram line that took us into the city centre was easily accessible every 10mins. and the people are all friendly.
The apt./house itself was perfect. It felt homey, was a good size for a couple and even for a couple with 2 children.
Sammy could unfortunately not meet us but his friend did and she was most welcoming and helpful upon our arrival.
Would I book this location again? Yes.
A friend of Sammy received us at the time we had stablished and at first we thought the apartment was amazing, but when we looked closely realized it was pretty dirty. The cookware was grose and the fridge smelled really bad. The bed has also a stain of blood that is only covered by a sheet, so that was disgusting as well. The apartment, on other hand is really pretty and if it wasn't for this stuff would have been perfect. It is located in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood, far away from the center by foot but in 15 minutes if you catch the metro (the station is in front of the apartment). The common zones are amazing, and the neighbors were friendly with us. On the first night when we were sleeping a girl walked onto our apartment waking us up (we don't understand what happened yet). So, if you want to stay in this apartment is up to you. It was a great stay if it wasn't for the conditions, but Amsterdam is always a good choice.
The apartment is highly designed, well located and quite.
The beds are wide and comfortable.
But the owner's service, in our case, was annoying.
Most phone calls and all SMSs were not answered.
We were greeted at check-in by "a friend of Sammy's" (we did not get to speak directly to the owner, Sammy). Minor problems we pointed out already at check-in were not solved, nor did we get any response about them. An explanation might have eased our mind and not leave us wondering and worrying while on vacation. For example, 3 lights were without bulbs, which left the living-room quite dark (a street light helped somewhat…).
When we had a bigger problem – no hot water one morning - it was fixed by the time we got back in the afternoon. Again, no response to phone calls or SMS, only after an email through AirBNB system.
The apartment has almost no windows to open. We felt OK, but at a different weather it might get stale. Especially if you close the bedroom doors for privacy or less light in the morning.
Generally the apartment is good if no issue comes up. We hope the owner pays more attention to service and to maintenance.
Leider wurden unsere Erwartungen nicht erfüllt und wir waren sehr unzufrieden mit der Wohnung und der Kommunikation. Bei Ankunft war weder das Bett gemacht,der Müll entleert,frische Handtücher vorhanden und auch allgemein wurde nicht sauber gemacht. Es wurde scheinbar schlichtweg vergessen . Die Reinigung wurde zwar selbstverständlich nachgeholt,jedoch wurde nur das Nötigste getan. Auf die Mitteilung dass das WLAN nicht funktioniert,wurde zwar gesagt dass sich darum gekümmert wird,jedoch kam nie eine Rückmeldung an.Insgesamt waren wir nicht zufrieden und würden diese Wohnung für diesen Preis nicht mehr buchen.Allgemein würde ich nichts mehr über eine Agentur ,wie hier scheinbar der Fall,buchen.
Very nice stay. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to experience amsterdam 10/10
The host canceled this reservation the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
It was our second visit to Amsterdam and our stay at Sammy's was fairly good, but did not fully meet our expectations. Sammy's checkin rules were very strict & specific which we were happy to abide to, however, to our disappointment, Sammy failed to answer our phone calls when we arrived to our location, which had left us waiting with our luggage in the street for over 30 minutes. Finally, Sammy's "friend" checked us in, who was less than pleasant.
Our experience in the actual apartment did not live up to its description. The apartment was on the 3rd floor with steep stairs, which made it very difficult to carry the luggage. The bedroom & the bathroom looked very presentable in the pictures, however in reality, they missed these touches.
It would have been more convenient if more thought and effort was put into the setting such as: more pillows, towels, coffee for the coffee machine as it shows in the pictures.
Overall, our stay was okay, the neighborhood is quiet, with an excellent Thai food place "Tiger Thai" nearby.
Very nice place. The house is lovely: à lot of place ans fully equiped. The kids loved to feed the ducks in the canal from the garden. 25 minutes from Amsterdam center with the ferry (gratis). I highly recommend !
Great place, comfortable. Great location! Close to several bars and restaurants. Nice neighborhood. Would recommend anybody to stay here.
Thank you very much for hosting us during our stay in Amsterdam
It's been nice to host Lotte i Sammy. They are positive people , and enjoy very much the city. Also they left everything ok in the apartment. Thank you , Lotte and Sammy, for the sea-mattress that you left to rhe next guests ! :)
Lotte and Sammy are fine couple, very friendly and nice people, welcome any time
Sammy and Lotte are excellent guests. They are very polite, friendly and very tidy. I recommend them to everyone and would host them again.
Wonderful guests! Would highly recommend! Cared for the home and very respectful of the property.
Sammy was awesome. We had a little maintenance to do to make the place better and he was really gracious with our requests. Super sweet in all his communication with us and the staff and I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Maarten and is friends stayed in our apartment close to the city center. We had good communication about check in and check out times. They are really nice people. The apartment was left very clean and neat. We would recommend them to any host!
Thanks guys for respecting the space!
Eva and Maarten are a great couple. I've known Maarten the longest of all my friends, since I was 5 or something..! There home is just like them, warm and it makes you feel welcome. Plus the location is great ;)
Eva and Maarten are the sweetest couple you are going to meet. Together they enjoy life to the fullest and the apartment is proof of this. You'll find a well balanced and lovely home to spend your time in Amsterdam.
