The Vondelpark, Van Gogh and Rijks Museums are also easily reached on foot.
A diamond merchant constructed the building in 1900 and it is called a “royal apartment” due to the fact that it has extra high ceilings and wider rooms. Orientated on an east/west axis with large windows spanning the width of every room, it is a light and airy apartment, which is unusual for Amsterdam.
The central location gives access excellent public transport, parking and many local cafes, bars, restaurants and shops.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I would definately recommend this apartment to anyone travelling to amsterdam. Our party of five found the place ideal for our extended weekend. Communication with the owner was quick and easy. The location was ideal, just outside the canal ring but within walking distance of Leidesplien, Anne Frank's house and Dam Square. It was very easy to locate and well serviced by trams. There is a supermarket/off-licence on the corner that stays opens late. The rooms in the aprtment were bigger than they appeared on the website and the place was in immaculate condition, even though there were other guests that checked out earlier that day. We were met there by a friend of the owner. She was very pleasant and spent some time showing us around the rooms, what was where and how to use the appliances etc. She even was kind enough to make sure that there was some milk in the fridge so that we could have a cup of coffee when we arrived. A nice touch! Our flight home was late in the afternoon. Thre was no problem making arrangements for a later checkout.
The stairs are a bit steep but that is to be expected. The views from the apartment are nice. On my next visit to amsterdam (with my family) I will definately try to book this apartment.
We love this area of Amsterdam & bought here before it became the new hip area of the city.. Its central for everything & has great shops near by and you don't need to bicycle or tram - you can just walk everywhere.
We have a child and there are many play areas and parks within minutes of the apartment.
Despite being over a century old this apartment feels truly modern as we have completed two major renovations in the past decade. It is the perfect place to stay while you explore our beautiful city.
