Overall, a great experience! The apartment was very clean with plenty of space for 3 adults. Kamiel was a great host. When we missed our meeting time due to a train delay, Kamiel was kind enough to leave work early to meet up with us to let us in. He also gave us plenty of tips and advice on the local neighborhood and seeing the city in general. He let us use an air mattress, so that each of us had our own bed in a separate room. His apartment is conveniently located with 3 tram lines stopping right outside, with direct lines to many of the major sites in the city. Very easy to get to Central Station. You certainly got the feeling that Kamiel wanted you to feel comfortable and at home while staying - which we did!
Highly recommended apartment and host - thank you Kamiel!
Kamiel is a fantastic host! Though we didn't get to meet him during our stay, he kindly arranged for his friend to meet us at the apartment. Everything went great; the apartment is in a perfect location and has all of the comforts and amenities of a bed and breakfast or hotel.
It's close to the center, but far enough away that you can get a peaceful sleep. Just board the 13 towards Centraal and you're in the heart of the city in a matter of minutes. If you'd rather walk or bike, that works too! We rented bikes down the street at Green Budget Bikes and had a great time.
There was a lot of space, so this is ideal for a medium sized group. I would recommend it for anyone who is looking to get the best of both aspects of Amsterdam--both lively and peaceful.
Kamiel and his apartment were fantastic, and we look forward to returning to Amsterdam very soon!
Kamiel was so welcoming and his apartment was amazing, perfect location and very comfortable. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!
Fantastic apartment in a great neighbourhood! Minutes from the Amsterdam centre...
Checkin and checkout was smooth and Kamiel was a great host. He provided us with information about the apartment and answered any questions we had.
Trams are on your door step or otherwise you can walk to your destination.
Overall a great experience and place to stay!
We (a couple with a 2-year-old son) stayed at Kamiel's apartment for 5 days. Kamiel's place is a cozy apartment in a nice neighbourhood with many restaurants, cafés and shops. Walking distance to Prinsengracht (Anne Frank House) and Vondelpark. A tram stop (several lines) is just outside the door.
Kamiel was very helpful and gave us valuable tips about Amsterdam. He also had a crib for our son to sleep in. The staircase up to the apartment is steep and narrow. The apartment itself was well kept, clean and the bed was comfortable. If we return to Amsterdam, we would gladly stay here again!
Kamiels apartment is fantastic. He is a great host. He had fruit and wine for us on arrival. He supplied us with a lot of useful information and even gave us a loan of his bike to cycle around the city.
I would highly recommend his apartment and would definately stay here again
Exellent location near Amsterdam center. Tram stop in front of house so You can go where ever You want in minutes. Took about 40 mins from airport to get there by train and tram.
Apartment is very clean and comfortable. Though lots traffic in street still very quiet place.
Kamiel was very helpful and friendly. He got some basic groceries for me and let bicycle for use. Too bad it was bit rainy weather so I used trams. Highly recommented.
I surely will rent His apartment when visiting Amsterdam.
Kamiel and his place are great! The apartment is very conveniently located, with a stop for three tram lines right outside to take you wherever you need to go. It's spacious, has a great common room to hang out in, and has a great view onto the street below. The main bedroom is large with a nice-sized bed, and the smaller room is good too.
Kamiel himself is a very gracious host; he met with our friend who was staying with us before we got there and told her all about the place, and showed her things he left in the fridge for us to eat, which was amazingly nice and totally unexpected. Overall we were very happy to stay at his place, and would definitely do so again.
Kamiel was a great host and his apartment was an exact replica of the pictures online. He even bought us food for breakfast! Staying in his apartment was extremely beneficial to our stay in Amsterdam for many reasons including how close it is to many tram stops and that we could come back to a warm and cozy place. The location is great and Kamiel helped show us where things were on one of his maps. It was overall a fantastic trip and experience!
Kamel is an excellent host. He provided cereal, milk and fruit for breakfast and as we were in Amsterdam for the annual marathon, he went out of his way to look up routes to the start for us, which was a huge help. His apartment is excellent, well located for tram etc , and would strongly recommend!
