The check in was easy and the location was good but the couch and carpets were so dirty and stained that we were afraid to sit on them. The Wifi also didn't work at all.

Hi Brennan, We recently had some guests who unfortunately damaged our couch. A new couch has already been ordered, but unfortunately due to the delivery time of 12 weeks it was not in time for your stay. The brand new sleeping sofa is due to arrive this week though, on April 6. Kind regards, Esther

The apt is wonderfully located close to Amsterdam Centraal & walking distance to most everything in the city. We were a party of 4 staying in apt 3. My sister & brother arrived first; found Jan waiting in the cafe for us. He said the apt was almost done being cleaned & would be ready in 30 mins. After my husband & I arrived shortly thereafter, we ordered coffees & waited. Jan never returned. So I never met him. We probably waited 2 hrs when I finally asked the bartender about the apt. He came over within 5 mins with the keys. The whole process seemed odd. That same bartender helped carry 1 of our suitcases up the very steep & narrow stairs. But that's just how the buildings are in Amsterdam. You quickly learn how to navigate those fun stairs! The apt. itself is very spacious; great for a larger family with very comfortable beds. We loved that the toilet was separate from the shower/bath area, however, the water pressure in the shower was awful. It was almost impossible to shower. The couch in the living area can definitely use a cleaning; it was quite dirty. Wi-fi was available, but irregular; and it only worked in the living area, not in the bedrooms, which was frustrating. The walls are thin so you can hear people in apt. 4, especially when they are walking up the stairs to their unit. I was also surprised that there was no sort of guidebook in the unit; no instructions, details, suggestions on what to do; nothing. Jan/Esther never checked in on us during our stay. We did reach out asking about taxi/Uber service back to the airport and Jan's response was immediate and helpful. The kitchen is well stocked, the bath towels were soft and smelled fresh, the bedding was wonderful. Even with cold, rainy weather, we had a great time in Amsterdam.

Hello Jasmina, Sorry to hear about your perception of the check in procedure. In my opinion the situation was a bit different than described. I was waiting for your sister & brother in the cafe and noticed they were standing in front of the wrong apartment so I friendly welcomed them into the cafe, which is located under the apartments where we had a chat. Since they arrived 1,5 hours before the agreed check in time of 2pm I was in fact pleased we were able to let you guys in earlier and I explained to your sister & brother that after 30 minutes they could collect the keys from the bar staff and that staff would assist further with your check in (this was also communicated by Esther prior to your arrival). Perhaps, since you are new to AirBnB it was not clear that we are not running a Bed&Breakfast where you have regular interaction with the host, but we normally rent out our apartments while we are away ourselves, therefore most contact is online. Most people are fine with this, so sorry if this did not meet your expectations. By the way, a printed paper version of our Guidebook (full of tips for restaurants & sightseeing in the area), was in a folder on the kitchen table next to the fruit bowl, but most people prefer to use the Guidebook which can be found online www.airbnb.nl/rooms/361342/guidebook But pleased to hear you overall enjoyed Amsterdam despite the weather. Kind regards, Jan

The location was walking distance from the train which was great for us although the walkways are narrow and slightly difficult to manage with suitcases. We arrived early and were able to stow our heavy suitcases in the basement of the cafe. Our flat was on the 4th floor. There was no lift. The stairs were narrow and steep. An employee of the cafe carried one of our three heavy suitcases up the stairs but no one was available to assist us on our departure. My husband and I are in our sixties and in fair physical shape however managing the stairs was quite difficult. The steps would not accommodate my foot (US size 9) so I had to turn my foot sideways which made navigating the stairs even more difficult. On a positive note we got a lot of aerobic exercise. We stayed three nights and never met Jan or Esther. No one showed us how to use the household appliances or made any local recommendations. I was not able to take a shower because I could not get the water temperature above tepid. On the other hand my 28 year old son who only stayed one night thought the shower was wonderful and enjoyed using a large squeegee provided in the shower to direct the water to the drain. The beds were comfortable and cozy and I slept well. Having access to the cafe downstairs was nice although the staff seem to attend to the locals more than us.

Hello Liz, Were are sorry to read that the concept of AirBnB was not clear to you prior to booking. It appears this is your first time traveling 'AirBnB style', which is indeed very different than staying in hotel with hotel staff & services. All info about the steep stairs was clearly stated in our listing description for people to see prior to booking and since we were away ourselves, the Manager of Cafe Kobalt was so kind to check you in and carry your suitcases up. He thought you would know how to turn on the TV and the shower. Kind regards, Esther

Our stay in Jan and Esther's apartment in Amsterdam was absolutely perfect. Jan met us personally at the Kobalt Inn upon check-in and gave us the walk through and the run-down of this amazing apartment that been perfectly restored to represent old Amsterdam while providing all the modern amenities for a comfortable stay. We were a group of 5 that all needed separate beds and it was no problem with the 2 room, 3 beds and pull out couch set-up. The Kobalt Inn staff located in the historic pub/restaurant below us were absolutely terrific assisting us in answering questions, making recommendations and with basically anything we needed during our stay. Not only is the apartment just as described, it is centrally located, right on a beautiful main canal and was within walking distance to any and everything we wanted to see or do while in Amsterdam. Thank you Jan and Esther for a perfect first airbnb experience!

A beautiful, modern-looking apartment very close to the train station. There was no noise from the cafe below and it was very easy to check-in and check-out. We had a good laugh when we saw the steep, narrow stairs to the apartment, typical of Amsterdam houses. The apartment was beautiful and in a great location!
