‘Illegal’ Airbnb landlord hit with €300.000 fine

Amsterdam, like Berlin, has a housing problem.

At the same time, for many owners it is more lucrative to rent out an appartment to short time renters via Airbnb than to enter a long term contract with a proper resident.

The Amsterdam City Council now has hit eleven flats, all owned by the same person, with a fine of €13.500 for appartment, calling them ‘the prototype of an illegal hotel’. The owner is contesting the fine.
