If this apartment was a room in a three star hotel, it would be the Penthouse suite. Roomy for two with large double glazed windows on two sides open up to bring the laid back bustle of the street below into the living room. At night and indeed day, this is a very quiet neighborhood, save for the Aussie tourist in Apt. 1, pounding on the ivories all day. Grap. My only issues were the stairs, which were unpleasant to negotiate due to my medical condition. And the bathroom which is the size of an aircraft toilet. The entry stairwell is poorly lit and inadequately ventilated. For these reasons I will not stay here again.

Great comfortable apartment but the WiFi is slow in the evening. Fully equipped kitchen with free tea and coffee. Shops are all around and the huge park is only 1 min walk away.

Martin's place was perfect for us - really close to the wedding venue we were visiting and a great neighbourhood. Martijn was really helpful in communications before the stay. Great value for money. Thanks so much for having us Martijn.

My friends and I really enjoyed staying at Martijn's place! It's very well located near bus and tram stops, and it's very easy to navigate to and from Schipol or Centraal station. On the way from the Tram is a grocery store that was very convenient to pop in and grab some ingredients or whatever you may need. Martijn's has any spices or pots and pans you may need. In the mornings it was so nice to sit with the windows open and enjoy an espresso from the machine in his kitchen. We always felt very safe and comfortable in his place as well. No AC so the windows were open all the time, which we didn't mind at all! Martijn was awesome with communication from booking to check out and his booklet on the area was very helpful. My friends couldn't stop talking about how great the place was and we loved looking through all his great travel books as well. Definitely will be booking again on our next trip to Amsterdam. Thanks again!

The location is easily accessible to the very good public transportation system. There are good restaurants, grocery, etc. nearby. We discovered a great park a short walk away and were able to get to all the spots we wanted to see utilizing the bus, tram and train. We even figured out a direct bus to the airport but chose to take cab we happened upon after missing a bus. Muuuuuuuuuuuch quicker! I'd say this place is better suited for a couple traveling and sleeping together rather than two separate people. But we made it work. The espresso machine is da bomb! Having apple TV is great and the internet was fabulous! We appreciate being allowed to leave our bags at the apartment after our very early arrival. I'd highly recommend this apartment!

I stayed at Martijn's apartment with my two daughters and we found it wonderful! Very convenient location (supermarkets, public transport, small and inexpensive restaurants, take-aways). We enjoyed the instruments, the books, photographs and the beautiful decor. Like many before me have stated, the coffee machine is fantastic. If/when we return to Amsterdam, we will definitely try to stay there again!

I am a graphic designer and musician, working in Amsterdam and abroad. For me Airbnb is a great concept. It's much more personal to stay at someone's apartment and it adds so much more to your travelling experience. I love travelling and doing spontaneous trips and use Airbnb as much as I can.
