Esther and Jan's place is great! The location is perfect for visiting Amsterdam by walking, public transport, or taking the train to other parts of the Netherlands. It is located in a bustling part of town which is wonderful to watch from the higher level situation of the apartment and the huge window in the front room. The bedrooms are at the back of the apartment and this location makes them very quiet. The apartment was clean. Everything is provided for eating in, pots,dish ware,etc. And just around the corner from the apartment you will find cheese shops, healthy take out, pastry shops, wine shops, and even a herring stand. But another special benefit of this rental is the Cafe Kobalt just down the stairs from the apartment. A very cozy place with a very good beer selection, nice coffee, live music at times, and outdoor seating in good weather where you can watch the boats go by on the canal. The steep Amsterdam stairs to the apartment will keep you in shape, so I would not recommend this to the unfit. Esther and Jan saved us from a rental which bailed out on us 8 hours before our arrival. They were able to accommodate us the next day and were kind enough to store our luggage securely before and after our checkout. We were very lucky because I believe Esther and Jan's apartment was better than our original choice. Esther and Jan are great Airbnb hosts.

The flat is absolutely fantastic : huge, well decorated, very comfortable (but it's in an historical building, so the staircase is really stiff), and right in the center of Amsterdam. Jan is a perfect guest : very kind, always ready to help and give advices, ... I do recommend it if you want to discover amsterdam...

We had a fantastic time at Esther & Jan's apartment. It was very spacious and quite accommodating. Very comfortable beds, modern living room and kitchen. Nice big balcony type window that opens up to a nice view of the city and canal. 5 minute walking distance to Central Station. Tons of shops/restaurants in the neighborhood. Host was very easy to reach and responded quickly to all questions. Internet speed also clocked at 80+mbps. Only slight drawback were the ceiling height and and steep staircase but then again that is the charm of a typical Amsterdam home. Everything else was absolutely wonderful.
