The apartment is located in the trendy De Pijp neighborhood of Amsterdam, so that was convenient. A short 15 minute bike ride gets you to Amsterdam's famous Red Light District. The apartment had plenty of space and was quite comfortable during my stay. The apartment is in an older building and was a little dusty. It's also located up 3 flights of uneven stairs, making it a challenge to lug my luggage up to it.
However, the worse part of my stay involved my interaction with the host, Vivian.
First, in her original listing for the apartment, she stated that a bicycle was included for use during my stay. However, after I checked in, she told me that there was no bicycle available and would update her posting. Part of the reason I picked this apartment was because the listing said a bike was available, so I don't appreciate being mislead.
Second, on the day I was to checkout, Vivian just showed up in the apartment that morning to collect some of her things. That'd be fine, except she never notified me she was coming. I had just gotten out of the shower and thus was naked when she barged in. This was very startling and made me extremely uncomfortable. As I had to hide in the bathroom for 20 minutes while she got her things, this delayed me from checking out on time.
A day after I checked out, Vivian then sent me an angry message claiming I broke a lock and dirtied her patio furniture. Both of these claims are untrue. She had a locked closet next to the kitchen, which I first mistook for the laundry closet. When I turned the doorknob of the closet, the whole assembly simply fell out. I am not responsible for the faulty construction of the door. Vivian complained about me trying to open her locked door, but I had no way of knowing that door was supposed to be locked until I tried turning the handle because I am not psychic. For reference, the washing machine is actually under the sink, a place I would not have guessed to look.
A big thunderstorm rolled through during my stay. As a side effect, rain and dirt were blown all over the patio, including on the balcony furniture. She tried to claim I was responsible for this. However, as awesome as I am, I cannot control the weather.
Overall, 6.5/10. I'd stay here again.
