We stayed 3 nights at Levi's apartment. Easy check in, clean and cozy. Great communication. A short bike ride into centre of city.
Levi was amazing-- he wasn't in town when we arrived but had set up his friend to meet us 3 hours earlier than the normal time to accommodate to us. He replied to all e-mails almost immediately and even sent a list of nightlife/things to do for me and my friends. Fantastic host, adorable apartment right on the water practically. Far from city center but extremely close to the tram that will take you right there in 20 minutes.

I did not have the same experience as others who left reviews on Levi's apartment. I was disappointed in getting no response over a 10 day period after leaving 2 messages on the airbnb messaging center as well as a personal email. I left a voicemail that was returned promptly, but when I did speak with him he seemed to not know who I was or why I was calling in spite of having confirmed our reservation request. Everyone has "off days", though, and I do not know what may have been going on in his personal life at the time, so I will give him that. He was by no means rude, though. There were many other very positive reviews from other users, so I am assuming my experience is the exception rather than the rule. The apartment itself was not difficult to find and is truly conveniently located. We arrived at the apartment at the agreed upon time to find not the host but a friend of his, who was very cordial and helpful. A little disappointed to not have been able to meet the great guy that I had read about in the other reviews, but as I said his friend who met us was very helpful and friendly. The apartment itself would, in my opinion, be best described as "my first bachelor pad". Nothing fancy by any means, but it served its function as a roof over our head for the night and I could see that someone in their 20s would think of it as a cozy place, so I don't think it inaccurate to describe it as such. While it would not be fair to describe it as filthy, it was not clean (for example, soap scum/calcium deposits/hair in the shower, dust bunnies on the floor). The hot water was nonexistent in the shower after about 30 seconds - not a great way to start your day. The "fresh linens" were actually worn-down oversized hand towels that were seemingly washed without fabric softener. On a more positive note, though, it was very convenient to have a tram stop right outside the front of the building, so it is very conveniently located. The downside of this, though, is that if you are a light sleeper you will hear this in addition to the neighbors on the sides and above you (they weren't vocally loud, just squeaky floors with every movement). I imagine that it can get quite hot in the summer without a/c, but this was not the case with our stay. I would recommend this apartment to perhaps younger guys looking for a less expensive place to stay, but would imagine that if I were a young woman traveling alone I would not have felt completely secure here. Was pleased that it did not smell of cigarettes with smoking being allowed here. He has a great video collection if you enjoy watching movies - great variety and something for everyone. This was our experience.
Response from Levi:
some people feel the rain, some people just get wet
We had a great time in the apartment. The couch is as great as the pictures look and everything was clean and comfortable. Only downside was it was a little tricky to get the hot water going in the shower.
Apart from the hot water that was kina schizophrenic, we had an excellent time at Levi's place ! The host was very kind and helpful, the place is spacious, neat and comfy. Plus it's not far from the center, only 10 min by tramway.
I recommend it !
Response from Levi:
Thanks for coming Charlbel! Was very nice to have you. Thanks for the tip about the hot water. I will fix it right away. Best regards Levi.
Siemen's apartment was very clean and comfortable! I enjoyed a lot my days in Amsterdam.
Siemen is a very respectful guest. He communicated his plan to me really well and very flexible. Will definitely recommend him to any airbnb host anytime. Thanks for staying with us!
If you look for a place in amsterdam then all you need is to book in Siemens house!!!you wont find better host anywhere around the world !!!
I hope i ll see you soon Siemen, keep making all your visitors happy!
A great spacious apartment in a very decent location. Very easy to get a tram to anywhere and right on the outer ring canals. We managed to get around to a lot of places just walking around. The apartment itself is very nice and has pretty much everything you'd need. The hosts made us feel right at home the moment we got there, and were very helpful with any tips or questions we had. We very much enjoyed our stay.
