Canal District Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Historical Canal House Top Floor 4 Pax; Close To Transport, Culture, Fun!

This property has a very interesting history: the canal 'Geldersekade' was the first expansion off the original 17th Century Amsterdam lay out city-walls - Relics can be found such as The Schreierstoren and The Waag on Nieuwmarkt, that mark the opposite ends of this canal. From 1664 to 1725 a series of small warehouses were built to serve the expanding population with supplies like wheat and salt from abroad. You will be staying in one of those rare, well preserved lots - officially a Dutch State Monument in this Unesco protected area!

Feel that historical vibe if you gaze over the lively canal and adjacent bicycle path from the top floor open balcony, and see it in the bricks of the 300 years old bedroom walls... but also enjoy the modern interior!

This is an excellent location, just 5 min walk from Amsterdam Central Station (15 min by direct train from Schiphol International Airport) and Oosterdok Parking (cheap public parking garage 10 min from circular highway A-10). Subway station is only 3 min walk, bike rentals on 5 min. Amsterdam Passenger Cruise Terminal is on 5 - 10 minutes - so this location is perfect for a few additional days in the city after your River / NorthSea Cruise too!

For daytime, take a canal tour, visit a museum like Van Gogh or Rijksmuseum that are within 20 min by foot, tram, subway or taxi. Relax some moments during late afternoon on one of the many NewMarket bar-terrasses (Nieuwmarkt) in our very street, or have a drink at home enjoying free WiFi, laptop and beamer for your convenience (no regular TV-set available - you can watch internet-TV channels if you like).

For evenings and nights, rest assured the neighborhood is safe to go out - the public and locals are nice, and aggression of criminality is seldom seen in this area. You find lots of international and local restaurants nearby, and moreover the famous, innovative 1 Michelin * Star restaurant Lastage on the ground floor of this very building.

Bars and nightclubs are abundant, and the famous Red Light District is just a few blocks away... New global dance and music hotspot A'DAM (opens end '15) just 10 min by public ferry across The IJ-river.

Of course, we would very much enjoy advising you to pick a choice of everything Amsterdam nightlife offers, by an updated A'dam-Highlights document you will find in the apartment and actual comprehensive documentation an suggested internet-links to that.

The A.D. 1700, 55m2 apartment offers modern comfort: a fully equipped kitchen, living room with canal view, a separate bedroom with full size 2 pers bed in the quiet back of the building, a neat bathroom with over sized shower. This place is very convenient for 2; however the upstairs vide sleeps an additional 2. Therefore, equipment and furniture is sized for 4 persons.

Sorry, the apartment is strictly a non-smoking venue, and no pets allowed! Note that the common stairs to this top floor apartment (3th floor) are very steep and narrow with just 100 cm width (with 1 handrail); so unfortunately this place is not suitable for disabled people and do take your time getting your heavy suitcases up (we will assist you upon check-in). On the other hand - all original restored canal warehouses feature this type of stairway and it is part of the 17th century experience in itself.

So if you are looking for an unprecedented place to stay in the very center, with optimal comfort an luxury - this is your choice.

Why Marcus Hinfelaar chose Canal District

This Amsterdam apartment is our second home - we mainly live in Baarn with our family, a nice and quite village 30km to the east of Amsterdam in the woods. As we are very fond of the city life too, we invested in this apartment as a great weekend pied-a-terre. Every single day and night we stay there, we enjoy this so much - now it is good to open up that experience for international enthusiastic travelers as well.

What makes this apartment unique

There are very few authentic yet comfortable spots like this - just look at the pictures, read the reviews and see for yourselves...

Fantastic apartment. Great location.

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I very much enjoyed this apartment and the neighborhood. It was amazing to stay in such a historic building. The place was very comfortable, very clean, and nicely decorated. The kitchen was well appointed and everything - showers, plumbing, appliances, etc - worked perfectly. It was quiet and felt safe. We liked the view, the breeze, and the canals below. I liked the loft area and wish I'd had an afternoon off to just lay up there and read.

The stairs are, as noted in the other reviews, comically steep. But unless you've got some significant mobility problems, you'll probably end up just getting some funny travel stories out of them, proof of the historic authenticity of the building.

We were able to walk to all the things that we wanted to visit: The Rijksmuseum, the Anne Frank House, the Stedelijk Museum, etc. A lot of just wandering around and enjoying the sights and cafes around the canals. If you have time, walk over and visit the Amsterdam Public Library if you're a fan of architecture and/or books - it's very close.

The proximity to Centraal Station (basically across the street) is supremely convenient for getting in and out. There's tons of cafes around and a nice market a block away to stock the kitchen.

Marcus and Monique were great hosts. Very accommodating getting checked in after a long night of travel, and very helpful with information about getting around Amsterdam and with information about taking the trains to our next stop, Brussels. Very nice folks all around and we enjoyed our interactions with them.

Great trip start to finish and we hope to come back to Amsterdam soon. If this place isn't booked up we'll stay here again! Thanks Marcus & Monique.

Live Dutch!

  • of 5
This was the perfect rental for the first-time visit of a family of four to Amsterdam. The 3rd floor apartment is a 5 minute walk from the train station (which is itself a 20 minute ride from the airport). The walk-up is very steep - essentially vertical the last five feet - but our host, Marcus was waiting for us upon arrival and helped to expedite getting our bags up the stairs. Once upstairs, one has the feeling of being in a real dutch apartment. The appointments and amenities were exactly as described in listing. The space is charming and clean. Beds were comfortable and wide. The loft easily accommodated both of our teenage boys, although one opted to sleep on the sofa bed (for reasons of adolescence) - he noted it was comfortable. All of the appliances worked and, to the delight of my kids, the internet connection was truly high-speed. A nice touch: wine was already chilled in the fridge (replace what your take). Amsterdam is amazingly pedestrian-friendly and this apartment was within a reasonable walking distance of all the principal attractions and many great restaurants (Lestage is downstairs and is a real treat if you can get a table - book early). From the Jordann to the Vondelpark, everything in Old Amsteram is easily accessible by foot or by trolley. Marcus was a fantastic host and it was very easy to communicate with him to arrange payment and navigate our arrival, as well as manage the return of the damage deposit. All said a great place.

Brilliant apartment. Great stay

  • 5 of 5
We, a family of four (children 8 and 12), really enjoyed staying here for a few days. Great location in walking distance from the central station, with restaurants, shops and food stores close by. Very tasteful, and well furbished apartment, with all necessary amenities. Ideal for a stay in wonderful Amsterdam.

However, steep steps to top floor makes it less recommendable for families with a push chair. For all others, top choice :-)

The owners are very friendly and helpful. Everything as described in the ad. All in all, highly recommended.

Amazing location, property and owner!

  • 5 of 5
We were given very clear walking directions to the apartment that were easy to find from the train station. The owner was there to greet us and showed us around the apartment. It was beautiful and looked just like the photos. What was a pleasant surprise that isn't really captured in the photos is the view of the canal in front of the home that you can experience through the double opening doors. The location was perfect, the suite was clean and the owner was helpful and really nice. I would highly recommend this property and have posted it all over my facebook page for my friends to see! Great experience!!!

Great apartment,location,host. Steep stairs.

  • 4 of 5
Great apartment exactly as on the website. Very clean and tidy, nicely appointed, washer and dryer, coffee machine and an honour bar. Central location, short walk to Amsterdam Central railway station. Great host, arrived on time, very helpful. Did a day trip to Volendam Marken and Zaansche plus Keukenhof Gardens. Great restaurants nearby, supermarket about 7 minutes walk. If you are older or have lots of luggage beware of the stairs. No lift And 3 flights of very steep stairs. Overall it was a great experience living in an apartment with a over 300 years of history, overlooking a canal.

Lovely, well-located apartment

  • 5 of 5
Apartment was as shown in the images and described, with very modern fixtures. It was clean and well-stocked with towels, and features a very nice view over a canal. The location was quiet, but close to the restaurants, cafes, and shops of Nieuwmarkt, as well as a short walk to Centraal Station and the rest of central Amsterdam. Marcus was a very responsive and helpful host who provided some good dining suggestions in the neighborhood. I completely recommend it.
