On The Market is a Bed & Breakfast right in the heart of the ‘Jordaan’, one of Amsterdam’s most appealing neighbourhoods.
The apartment is situated in a quiet area, except on saturdays: then there’s a nice and cosy market.
In the apartment you will find all comforts: A washroom with shower, wash basin and possible washing machine and dryer (€5,-), a kitchenette with dishwasher, Nespresso machine, oven/microwave etc. WiFi and television (+DVD) are also at your disposal. Linens and towels are available. There's a floor heating, so it's always comfortable.
You have your own entrance and will be undisturbed. The owner, who lives above the apartment, can supply the refrigerator with all the ingredients that make up a Dutch breakfast everyday. The price is €7,50 p.p.p.d.
The double-bed can be split into 2 separate beds.
The two chairs can also easily be made into beds. An additional €25,- per night will be charged for that.
The apartment is all yours. I live above, but you have your own entrance.
Interaction with guests
Because you have your own entrance it's not necessary to meet eachother, but if you want advices or suggestions I'm available.

I'm a interim-manager, a trainer and a personal coach in Education and Healthcare ánd I'm a B&B host. My apartment is a registred B&B, not only in use for Airbnb. It's in a part of my house I don't use myself. I like to be a host, because I like to meet people from all over de world. I'm a traveler myself, so when I'm free I try to travel. I have an old motorcycle (BMW R 27 from 1961) and that gives me a lot of pleasure in summertime. I lived in Amsterdam my whole life and I like the city very much! I can tell you a lot about it and give you advices about where to go etc.
I have two sons in the end of their twenties. They live in the neighborhood (when they are in Holland, they like to travel both) and I often do things together with them and a group of friends around them like going to the Northern Cape with old Deux chevaux, motorcycle tours, we like to cook and to have diner together etc. I like walking in nature with my dog Loesje (Jack Russell) she is a great pleasure in my life too!
