PRINSENGRACHT CANAL SIDE APARTMENT IN AMSTERDAM 227

Old Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Canal side location and unique apartment

Gaze dreamily from the window seat of your Amsterdam short stay apartment which overlooks the beautiful Prisengracht Canal. Located right in the centre of Amsterdam, just around the corner from the culinary street, 'Utrechtse straat' and a stone's throw away from Rembrandt Square, everything is on your doorstep.It's within easy reach of the flea market, the flower market and the museums.

Access is easy to this beautiful large studio (1 room) apartment because it's on the raised ground floor and there are only a few steps. This also allows a great view of the canal. The flat is ideal for a couple plus a 3rd adult or child who can make use of the sofa bed. The apartment was beautifully renovated in 2009 from a former Barber's shop . It has a funky retro feel with lots of delightfull details referring to its history which adds to it's charm. It's a lovely place in a quiet area great for a couple or small family interested in experiencing a local less touristy side of Amsterdam.

The apartment features a dining table, a double bed, that can be put to an upright position that saves space during the day. In this upright position it locks into a cabinet that used to be the barbershop mirror. It has two private window seats in what used to be the former shop windows. Furthermore there's a kitchen with gas stove, oven, fridge etc & of course all utensils. You can access free wireless internet. Plus, there´s a big flat screen TV, a DVD-player and an old fashioned style radio that blends in with the retro-styling. As well as the front door it has it's own entrance so you have all the privacy that's needed.

The bathroom is brand new however the toilet is small and the shower is built-in within the side of the kitchen. This couldn't be avoided because it used to be a shop and we had to work with the original division of the place. But it's not at all bothersome if you know what to expect. For example if you don't mind brushing your teeth in the kitchen sink. This side note is just to avoid any surprises for you on arrival.

Bike rental is just around the corner along with a supermarket and other shops. It's situated in an ideal, if not the best area of Amsterdam. It's an area where liveliness and peacefulness go hand in hand.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We really enjoyed our stay at the apartment. We were met at the door upon arrival and did not have to wait. The area is lovely and very convenient with a tram stop right opposite. The apartment was perfect except for the shower, as it was difficult to direct the flow of water and was easily 'bumped off' with one's elbow. I would recommend the apartment to friends - it is just right for two people.

Overall, me and my girlfriend had a great experience in this apartment!

Positive:

- Location: Just a few minutes walking from Rembrandplein and Leidseplein, but still in a really quiet street, and in front of one beautiful canal. There´s a tram stop in front of the apartment! Just perfect!

- Staff: The “staff” who runs the apartments’ (they have other apartments for rent in the same building) are absolutely lovely and extremely helpful.

- Stylish: The studio is even more beautiful than the photos shows. It has all the appliances that you need (except for washing machine, but there´s a place near the apartment to do so, if you need it). The studio has a perfect space for 2 people.

Negative:

- Bathroom and Kitchen “mixed”: Just as advertised, the kitchen is “jointed” with the bathroom. The sink of the kitchen is side by side with the one from the bathroom. But honestly, that did not bother us at all.
- Skylight: There´s a skylight inside the kitchen. The things is, it is front of the shower, so if the neighbors want, they can see you naked in the shower!!! Ok, this is Amsterdam, and the neighbors probably don´t care about this (we didn´t notice anyone looking at us). Still, some people may fell discomfortable with this. Also, it gets some lights inside of the apartment. Nothing very bright (we were there in the winter, don´t know how it can be in the summer), so we slept there without problems. But if you are very averse to light for sleep it may be a problem. I would recommend to the owners to get a curtain or something similar in the skylight in order to avoid those problems.

- Cold in the bathroom/kitchen: this is probably something that only people who comes from countries with hot temperatures and stay there in the winter would complain, but we felt a lit bit of could in the bathroom/kitchen, as it is the coldest place in the apartment, and the one where you are naked when you leave the shower! Again, I have a very simple recommendation: get one of those towel´s dryers, which can also be used as heater.
