Central Lodge I is a spacious apartment, of about 110 sq m, located on the ground of a beautiful historical building on the Prins Hendrikkade, in the heart of the city centre, overlooking the famous Chinese Restaurant Sea Palace on the water, and the beautiful New Metropolis Science and Technology museum (better known as NEMO), designed by the famous Italian architect Renzo Piano. It’s only a few minutes’ walk from Central Station, and from the nightlife area, in particular the Nieuwmarkt, and Dam and Rembrandt squares. Shops and restaurants surround you, along the many canals surrounding the area, as well as the major attractions (Rembrandt House and the flea market on Waterlooplein, the botanical gardens and the nearby Artis zoo, the Hermitage, and the Jewish museum, the historical “Magere Brug” or skinny bridge, just to mention a few).
It has been recently refurbished.
