Worst AirBnb experience so far.
I stayed there for 2 weeks (business trip), and really regret it.
Chantal is not there. Her phone is out, she does not reply to AirBnb messages; zero communication possible. Her roommate was supposed to open me the door. I had to wait 1h outside in the rain for someone to come. Finally, the roommate arrive, she doesn't apologize for her delay since she actually did not know at what time I was coming since Chantal did not tell her.
Disgustingly dirty, hasn't been vacuumed for long, dust all over the furniture. The bed sheets, well, i don't even want to think of it, as if they had been used for last 20 years. I had to ask my colleague (local) to bring me bed sheets from his house!
Very loud neighbors and thin walls did not help to get good rest sleep after cleaning the room neither. You can literally hear the others speak and cough while laying on the bed.
Chantal lies. She lies about everything when it suits her.
1. Roommate was late (1stday) to open the door because of TRAFFIC. Amsterdam = bike = no traffic + Roommate did not know my arrival.
2. She pretends to be around and have an eye on you, while she is actually enjoying vacation in Hong-Kong.
3. She pretends that other AirBnB guests arrive randomly in the house so that you don't invite any extra guests.
4. She does not do the check-out or help you with anything since she is not even in the country.
Don't stay there. It may be cheap for Amsterdam but it's not worth it. There are many places more livable. First of all you won't enjoy the appartement but also you may get in trouble if you have zero contact person. Don't expect to get any help, local tips or anything. I was fine because i knew the city, even spoke the language and I was not there for visiting. But as a tourist I couldn't imagine the nightmare staying there for more than a night.
At first glance it's also pretty obvious from the pictures that not a single sh*** is given about this place. So imagine about the people living there. I am usually i big airbnb fan but in this case I wish I had taken another decision.
Anyways, you get the point, avoid this place and especially this Host at all costs!
