Testemonials Free Room Tonight

By Samm F

Lovely breakfast and conversations. Thanks M and M

By Sah H

Good place to stay – with local transportation just steps away, host were kind – welcoming and offer you as much or as little as you would want. They know the city well and can help guide you with your stay.

By Mike A

And would you look at that, I stayed again! Once again I have no complaints at all.

I had a really nice stay at Max and Margaritta’s place during my trip to Amsterdam. Despite the fact that I got a bit lost and arrived later than I would’ve liked, Margaritta was really nice and welcomed me with a nice cup of tea and some wonderful strudel that Max had made. Like other reviewers have mentioned, for a small fee, guests can have some of Max’s really good cooking and I enjoyed a few breakfasts with the hosts, who were both good conversationalists and nice to talk to. That being said, there was a nice balance between sharing conversation and being left to do my own thing at times, which was nice. The room itself is large and warm and the balcony looks lovely, though it was too cold for me to enjoy. While not as centrally located as many hotels and hostels, it’s only a 15 or so minute tram ride to Dam Square and, if you’re feeling adventurous, it’s a pleasant bike ride as well. I would definitely recommend staying at Max and Margaritta’s, especially if you’re up for some animated conversations and a couple of nice home-cooked meals.

By Mike A

Max and Margarita are exceptional hosts; great cooks, storytellers, and happy to give advice on where to go and what to do in Amsterdam. I had to leave at 5:30AM to catch my flight, Max was waiting in the kitchen at 5:20 with a glass of warm milk. The room itself is clean and warm, and the internet connection is solid. I’d definitely stay again

By Claire A

Staying with Max and his wife was great – they are very accommodating and friendly people with a lovely home. The room is big enough for three and the beds are comfortable. And Max’s breakfast is delicious! Recommended.

By Shripada R

We visited Amsterdam 10 days ago and stayed with Max and Margarita. They were very kind, friendly and helpful hosts. Amsterdam is such a beautiful place and has friendly atmosphere. Would love to go back again. Will definitely recommend Margarita and Max’s place to my friends.

By Domenico S

casa calda e accogliente…abbiamo avuto uno splendido soggiorno e i proprietari erano davvero simpatici

By Rocío C

I have no words to describe how are Max and Margaret. They treated us very well from the beginning and helped us with everything they could. Max is very good cook and he can tell many interesting things. Both of them are very nice and very good people. I had been one time in Amsterdam and if I could repeat one day, i ‘ll return to their home.

By Jolina M

Max and Margarita are awesome hosts. Max is a wealth of knowledge and very engaging converstionalist. If, by chance, I go back to Amsterdam, I would surely try it again, with less baggage this time around.

By Kari B

We felt at home and entertained and treated to EXCELLENT food. It was good to sit at the kitchen table and be a part of the family.

By Stephan L

Max and Margarita really went out of their way to ensure I had a good time in Amsterdam and could not have been more welcoming!

By Tom L

Max’s room was really great. The location is quiet and just out of town. The apartment is right on a tram line and easy to get to from the airport, downtown, or anywhere really – but we just walked everywhere because it was close enough for that too. I recommend his breakfast, he is a great cook! Thanks!

By Kevin N

Max and Margerite were great – really friendly and welcoming hosts. The room was spacious and clean and well located. Would recommend to all.

By Itohan A

Our experience in Amsterdam was made all the better by staying with Max! A wonderful host with an extensive knowledge of the city and an amazing chef. I highly recommend his breakfast – you’ll only have to worry about grabbing dinner in the city because you might just be too full for anything else!

By Benjamin P

Max was very interesting to meet for me as we had common interests and practices in the video Art. The room was great and the breakfast was good !

By Luisana M

This is a very nice room, everything as it is listed on the profile. Max is very friendly, he was very helpfull with transport information and tourist attractions. Highly reccomended! I would stay there again :)

By Tomomi A

オーナーのMaxはとても親切な人で、アムステルダムの観光についてなど色々教えてくれます。奥様のMargarita さんは美人でやさしい人です。5ユーロの朝食は、とても朝食とは思えないほどのボリュームです。場所はCenterへ歩いて30分程度で着きます。近所はトルコ料理のお店が多いので、アムステルダムでトルコ料理も楽しめます。トラム12と14に近く、12は美術館やVondel公園、14はCenterに行くのに便利です。無料でWifiが使えるので便利です。Max達は家族のようにもてなしてくれるので、ホテルでは体験できない良い思い出がつくれます。Max is very kind and helpful owner and he will give you good advise or information you need and his wife Margarita is also beautiful and kind person. The 5 euro breakfast is amazing. Lots of food is served. The location is also nice. There are many Turkish restaurant in neighbor that you can enjoy local Turkish food with good deal. You can walk to Center in 30min or take Tram 14 for Center, to go to museum or Vondel Park, Tram 12 is convenient. Free wifi is also useful for PC and iPhone user. You will have good experience as living in a family in Amsterdam which you cannot have if you stay in a hotel!

By Priyanka P

Max and Margarita were incredibly warm, generous and friendly hosts that made me feel immediately at home. They went out of their way to help me with anything and everything. On top of offering a perfectly clean room and being great hosts, both Max and Margarita were great cooks, serving up endless breakfast everyday!

By Zachery P

This place was just like the description says… except needs to add the words home feeling nice big room. This was my first time using airbnb and it was an excellent experience. Max and his wife invite you right into their home as if it was yours. He offers breakfast and dinner for a slight fee but worth every penny (pence, euro whatever your money may be). You will be full after the meal (had breakfast only). They give you a key so you can come and go as you please and don’t ask any questions about when you will be home. If you need help around the city; Max is like a free tour guide and will help you with the tram systems. The bed was very neat, clean an also comfortable. If I go back to Amsterdam this is where I will be staying for sure.

By Denise H

We had great communication with Max and it was a delight to meet and be greeted by himself and Marg arita. Everything was as Max described and they were wonderful hosts. As it was a very wet evening we dined with Max and Margarita and also had a traditional breakfast with them next morning. Max also took us to our boat at the docks in his car.

By Joseph B

We were greeted by Max from his balcony upon arriving with a friendly hello. We found both Max and his wife the most interesting and vibrant hosts we’ve ever stayed with! They went out of their way on numerous occasions to help us out and provide us with information. Great value for your money, highly and warm heartedly recommended! OCT 2011

By Yap K

Max is humorous and likes to joke. You feel at home soon as you check in. He makes me feel comfortable and provide accurate info when I need them. His room is clean and bright and neighbourhood is quiet. Very safe to travel around with good tram and bus stop just a few steps away. I would recommend guest to try it out provided you can take some flight of stairs.

By Sharon K

Margarita and Max were very generous and friendly hosts. Max went beyond in providing information and lending assistance to ensure our stay was enjoyable. Bonus is interesting, thoughtful conversation and wonderful meals. We highly reccommend both breakfast and dinner!

By Mary S

Max and Margaritaare wonderful intelligent people and we enjoyed our conversations with them immensely. We would definitely stay here again. He gives perfect directions from airport.

By Jessica P

We stayed one night at Max’s apartment. The pictures of the room are very accurate and we found it very easy to locate the apartment. We only had one night left to run around the city so we didn’t have much time to spend with Max, even though he was a very nice host offering us tea when we arrived and breakfast in the morning ( sadly we had to skip it to catch our flight home).

By Jasmine H

Very cosy apartment in a quiet part of Amsterdam, and only a few minute bus ride to the center. The bus stop was extremely close to the house as well. Max was very helpful with directions.

By To Yi Zoe L

We have had one of the most relaxing stay in Amsterdam. The room was big, cozy, and extremely comfortable. The host, Max and his wife were one of the best host we have EVER seen. Had two marvelous breakfast and a afternoon tea with them. Quote a phrase from Max, “In the morning, you’ll eat like a KING!”, and that is what we felt during our breakfast with him. Max is also a humorous and knowledgeable man who introduced us about Netherlands. I would say our stay there worth down to a penny! 我們在max跟margarita那邊過了一個非常輕鬆愜意的假期。房間十分寬敞且舒適加上主人家熱情的款待,讓我們有賓至如歸的感覺。max 除了跟我們分享了很多關於荷蘭的事,還給我們煮了很好吃又很豐盛的早餐,那是一定不能錯過的哦~如果我們有機會再踏足阿姆斯特丹,一定會再來這邊住帝~ Tempat ini adalah sebaik dgn hotel yg plg luxury! Datanglah ramai ramai, harga murah, room dan servis yg 5 star! Max, boss tempat ini adalah host yg agak baik! Jgn lupa makan sarapan sama Max, sarapan yg paling sedap saya makan di amsterdam.

By Christina Z

We had a really nice stay and recommend the room as well as the breakfast (we are sure, the dinner is also fantastic) to everyone! We had a wonderful time, thanks a lot.

By Yana P

Stayed in several Airbnbs, and although the neighborhood was great (block from the 14 bus) and the room spacious, the home didn’t have the same welcoming feel as the other places. There was only 1 key, and there is a winding staircase, so be ready to carry your luggage up 3 flights. Also the walls were thin and you can hear TV until late. A few hours after I posted the above, “neutral” review, Max wrote up a pretty nasty one for me..it is really upsetting to read it and not true. My friend and I went to bed at 10pm and were out of the house the rest of the time, didn’t use kitchen or living room, and the only time were heard is carrying up our suitcases moving in at 11am. We didn’t know you can’t be laughing on the staircase during the day. We were great hosts. I feel it’s appropriate to share his review of me here. “Very loud and quite “unpleasant” guests. We never had a bad experiences till now this was our first one. But in general we could live with it. Not all people like everyone… I wish them more luck next time as they also didn’t like us…”

By Meghan R

Max and is wife were wonderful! They have a beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood just outside downtown Amsterdam. The accommodations were lovely, and I would definitely recommend others should stay with Max!

By Anita K

Max and Margarita welcomed me very warmly into their home. They took great care to make me feel comfortable and accommodate my needs, and spent a lot of time sharing experiences with me. Staying with them was a lot more fun than returning to an impersonal hotel room after a day’s sightseeing.

By Norainni M

The host(s) were pretty awesome & helpful. Dinner and breakfast were better than the food in the restaurant. The room is very spacious and clean, love the coffee making machine (best coffee ever), the shower room is clean, friendly couple. Highly recommended & last but not least, public transport to/ from the apartment is easy! :)

By Sandi W

My husband and I had a lovely time staying with Max and Margarita. They were very friendly and helpful and made us feel right at home. For extra money Max will cook the most delicious meals for you! The room was nice and big and the bed was comfortable. The tram was about a 5 minute walk from the apartment and only a 15 minute ride to downtown Amsterdam. We would highly recommend staying with Max.

By Paul D

Max and Margarita’s place was great. Comfortable, just a few minutes away from the center by tram or bicycle, and very cozy. They are wonderful hosts who share their home with you and even offered to let me join them for meals. Definitely a fantastic experience!

By Shyamala S

I had booked a room at Max’s place for a visitng friend who had only positive things to say about Max and his wife, and was glad that he was staying with them.

By Michael B


The room and the balcany were great! Max is very friendly and shared a lot of information about the city.

By Johannes Z

Unfortunately we didn’t meet Max himself, but lived in his rooms. We enjoyed our stay there and recommend it to everyone who searches a nice place not far from the city!

By Jordan M

My wife and I had a wonderful 4-night stay at Max’s apartment. The flat was wonderful in every way, and though Max and his wire were not there, their neighbors took very good care of us. Highly recommended!

By Atasit L

Big room with chilled out balcony. I would say this was worth to our penny we spent. Very cozy and chilled out. Nice neighbourhood. However we unfortunately didn’t meet with Max. Otherwise we may have more fun during we stayed there. For traveller plan to visit, only my experience shared that please keep your light weight of your luggage.

By Will V

Max’s space is beautiful, and located in a wonderfully convenient spot in Amsterdam. He was away when we were there, but his friendly neighbour was happy to let us in. We would absolutely stay with him again.

By Margrét P

Really nice room I would recommend it to everyone ;) The location is also fine, we were on bikes the whole time and it only took us about 5 minutes to get down town but by walking about 40 minutes so we would also recommend everyone to rent a bike.

By Christina D

We have had a wonderful and very pleasant stay in Amsterdam (3 nights). As Max was on vacation, his wife Margarita hosted us. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and in a nice and quiet neighborhood. Also it is very close to public transportation, the tram will take you from the main station to the apartment in under 30 minutes. We can recommend the apartment very much!

By Quynh T

It was a nice room, spacious enough for three people. And we liked the Wifi! We had something to drink, towels and a friendly host. Unfortunately, we could not meet Max, but his wife Margarita was so kind to welcome us. It is possible to walk to the city center, but it took around 30-40 minutes. Better take the tram, especially, when it’s raining!

By Sarajane C

Max Staying with Max and Margarite was such a restful break for us on our journey. We ate a lovely breakfast that max prepared and learned a lot during our talks with Max. I highly suggest staying with them- the tram line is easy from their place to go anywhere and they truly make you feel at home! Max even took us to the airport because we were super late getting back to the apt. We wouldn’t have made our flight. Such a nice guy!

By Kwanjai L

lovely family! nice and clean room.wi-fi.king sized bed and very cozy.Max and Margarita very lovely couple and do best cooking.I arrived in Amsterdam but very bad weather and can’t go anywhere. They are lovely to cook for me and charge only little money.Lovely small chelf ( Max’s son) take care customer very well. :-) you will feel like stay home when stay there. Highly recommend if you want to stay with local people. Kwan

By John C

Great room. Great hosts. The room was very spacious, with enough floorspace to allow all three in our party to spread out our luggage and still walk around. A night table adjoined each of the two beds. An open air wardrobe with empty hangers also held three complimentary-use towels, along with a top of a cabinet which held water, fruit, and a single serve espresso maker. Finish the room off with attractive paneling and stylish blown up photos from a local artist made for a relaxing place that felt homey from the get go. The bathroom and kitchen were in tip top shape. Cooking was a breeze with the ample counter space. The bathroom shower head is mounted on a hose for ease. Don’t forget to have a seat on the room’s balcony. It comes with a small table for an evening’s tea. A good breeze came through from this balcony to the kitchen’s. We were able to keep quite cool on the sunny high 20 degree Celsius days in July. Grocery stores are just a few minutes away (Albert Heijn and . So, you can more easily save a few Euro on snacks and water rather than buying while you’re exploring the city. We didn’t spend much time in this end of town. Instead, we took the nearby tram into the city center and explored there. If you have time to sit with the hosts, you’ll have opportunity to engage in lively interesting conversation of the nearby regions, culture, economy, history, and technology. A nice visit to the city was made much nicer having stayed here instead of our other likely option: some bland poorly kept cheap hotel.

By Jerry H

Max and his family were great hosts. The room was spacious, clean and very close to public transportation that was able to take us quickly to the city center and Amsterdam’s sights.

Karl T

Max and his wife are very kind people. My stay with them was very positive and would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a fair price on a room.
