Where to begin. During the booking of this place, the owner was very receptive. Once he got paid, I didn't hear from him again. In the week leading up to our stay, countless messages were sent to him to finalize the meeting points and timelins, but nothing back from him. I had to get HomeAway customer service involved, and they escalated to problem to another department, and I finally received a message from the owner saying don't worry. Then again nothing until the day of my flight he sent a message to WhatsApp him when I arrive. Horrible communication from ownership, leaving my group uncertain of whether we had a place to stay or not and the anxiety it caused.
As for the place, it was just as bad. The stools you see in the picture are broken, the couch is dirty and ripped. There are no curtains on the window in the living room, instead the owner has nailed, what looks like, a bed sheet to the window. The owner claims 3 bedrooms, but it is actually one bedroom. The second room he called a bedroom, is actually a room where he put up crates to create a makeshift room. In the makeshift room, there was one bed and one sofa bed. The sofa bed was broken and tilted. We notified the owner about the broken sofa bed, and he said someone will come to look at it, but no one did. He stated that people should share a bed rather than use the sofa bed. Not as advertised or what we paid for.
If there is such a thing as electrical code, this place did not have it. The wiring in the bathroom is just a fire hazard waiting to happen. The washer is hardwired into wires extending out from the wall. A bulb sticking out of the ceiling on wires that were not secured. A fire hazard with just one spark, a big safety concern.
There was no wifi (as advertised at the time). The owner said use the wifi of the bar next door. Not worth it.
Overall, the location was actually nice, but the place and service deserved a less than zero stars.
Stayed in this property for 3 nights, 3 couples sharing. If there are more of you sharing you will need to be creative with the mattresses! It's a great place for a group to stay in. It's very basic but it has everything you need.
The guy who met us at the property could not be more helpful and left his contact details in case we needed anything over our stay.
Location is perfect, and I do mean perfect for exploring the red light district as it's directly in the middle of it.
I would definitely stay here again.
Great location. Lackluster accommodations
Let me start out by saying that the owner all but called me a liar during our correspondence leading up to our rental. I asked him about adding a 4th person to our party, and later, the 4th party backed out, so it would remain a party of 3. I told the owner this and he said that we would most likely be bringing 10 people with us, and we’d have to pay a deposit until he was satisfied that we weren’t lying. I was indignant. The property was shoddy to say the least. The front curtain was a tattered felt sheet. There was no curtain on the 2nd floor. The internet never worked and we were told to use the wireless from the cafe next door. That internet kept disconnecting. The entire unit was far from well appointed. The beds were comfy enough, but the owner tried to put 3 men in two beds. We complained and he relented. The living room was nice enough though. I wouldn’t stay there with more than 5 people at all. The handle on the bathroom door came right off in our hands. The place had a washing machine and dryer, but the dryer didn’t work. The location was perfect. Lots of great food/drink/action at our fingertips. For the money we paid, we deserved a lot more, but if the price went down it would be a nice humble place to stay.
Pictures are deceiving
Firstly we booked this apartment as it was advertised as a smoking apartment first rule NO SMOKING....we were left waiting outside the property for nearly 2 hours when we eventually got hold of the owner he tried to tell us someone was at the property at the agreed time which they weren't then told us it would take 45 mins to get someone to us the girl that eventually came was lovely and really helpful not her fault requested compensation as this was hardly the start we wanted to our vacation request was totally ignored....suppose to sleep 12 which would be alright if you fancy sleeping rough only proper bed is in a room with no blinds or curtains under this bed is pallets which is another bed and 2 blow up beds in the wardrobe the other room which is classed as a bedroom pallets as walls has a sofa bed and pallets with a mattress on it had to buy pillows as these were shocking and dont try to shut the door made of pallets accident waiting to happen...the kitchen is suitable for boiling a kettle pity there was only 2 cups had to buy some to have a cuppa....wires hanging out of the bathroom light and others with no covers on them table and chairs at the window would have been great if it wasn't for the blanket covering the window letting no light in If all this doesn't put you off it is in a good location but after visiting Amsterdam for 25 years this has to be the worst accommodation ever Also note that you will have to wait nearly 2 weeks for your deposit back
I recently stayed in this Accommodation it is what it says.....check in was swift as I landed after 6pm & The Host was at the property waiting for our arrival. The property was clean & was good for what we needed it for, the only downfall is the upstairs bedroom has a blow up or mattress bed on the floor, spacious property but it’s designed for really 4 couples as it’s 2 double beds a double sofa & double mattress. Overall it was good & it’s in red light district so the shops & cafes are close by.
Amsterdam always good property could off been better
Are property was in the red light district which was good. The property it's self did what we we needed for are time there.
