A property which needs maintaining properly
The area was not ideal in finding places to eat. The property was not maintained properly. Wallpaper coming off the wall in one of the bedrooms. Door/window did not open in one of the bedrooms (broken). Tape around lamp lead in one of the bedrooms (dangerous). Awning in garden broken. Downstairs shower did not drain properly. (took 2 hours for it to empty) Very dark and dank in this area. Sauna advertised on site but did not realise you had to pay E7.50 hour to use it. Only one toilet roll spare in toilet areas (although stated that it is provided).. Had to pay fees for cleaning and extra fees - on original booking it stated that fees were included? We had to strip off the beds etc (doing half the cleaners job). Outside garden light missing leaving exposed electric cables. Lamp missing in TV room; several light switched not working.
When arriving, it took us ages to find owner to retrieve the key. Back door key taken by owner the day before we left so could not access the garden.
One good point was the secure basement parking facilities.
We would not recommend your site (hidden charges which we thought we had already paid for); property not up to standard.
I regret that you were not satisfied. I have tried to please you. I have met all your wishes, I thought, and did my shopping and personally brought the house key to the central station where you had arrived. In advance I have emailed all the ins and outs of the house to you, including how the back door works. once again I regret the course of events but I think your review is quite unfair.
We enjoyed our stay at Ron’s unit. Very spacious kitchen. Bedrooms and bathrooms were fine. The space accommodated 6 of us very well.
I stayed in the apartment of Mr. Ron for 5 days - 6 persons. The apartment is very clean with all comforts. The connection to the center is great.
Book with confidence
This is an extremely clean and spacious house with all the necessary facilities to make the guests feel completely at home. The oldest parts of Amsterdam are no more than 20 minutes away by 1 simple tram journey (the tram stop is about 7 minutes from the house and only €2.80 for a single trip, less if a 48 or 72 hour travel pass is bought) and the accommodation is situated in a very quiet neighbourhood with a supermarket, chemist and other shops only a very short walk away.
Ron, the owner, is a really nice guy and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone who is looking for a great place to stay just outside a truly beautiful city.
Thanks Ron.....we had a great time!
This house is very nice and a great place to stay. We had a group of 6 in the house and there was plenty of space in the 4 level house. The house is in a nice neighborhood outside of city center...but a grocery store, coffee shop/bakery are a short walk away and the team which will take you nowhere you need to go in Amsterdam is right down the street. Ron is great to work with and I'd recommend the house for your stay
Peace and quiet in a typical neighbourhood
Lovely house, a bit outside the centre of Amsterdam. However, access to the city is very easy, with both a tram and a bus going directly to the centre.
The photos on the site are accurate, giving a good impression of the house. There are the usual (narrow, winding) stairs, which are a pain if you're not used to them, but are very much the norm in Amsterdam. The description of the house is accurate, with the exception of the layout. There are two full bathrooms - but one bathroom is downstairs, i.e. two floors DOWN from the main bedroom. For some people this might be an issue.
For us, we were very pleased with the house. It is very peaceful and quiet, double glazing means the house was very warm and quiet. We had an experience in a more typical residential neighbourhood rather than a touristy hotel. Access to the city was not a problem - in some ways, this is even a positive as it forces you to plan your days properly.
Ron, the owner, was very cooperative in terms of working with us, and our rather bizarre schedule for arrivals and departures. He was very prompt on the phone with any questions we had, and kept the house very well.
Definitely one to recommend.
Thank you for you positive response!
I want to thank you that you have left the house neatly.
Greetings from Ron
