Guesthouse along the canal in historic center

Bedrooms 2
Space 645 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Recently renovated apartment in the souterrain of our canal house dating from the 17th century, Amsterdam’s Golden Age. Along one of the three main canals, de Herengracht, this house has a unique location - everyone will agree - because of the wide views on two canals, both Herengracht and Blauwburgwal.

This stylish and comfortable guesthouse with private entrance and patio offers a spacious living room with dining table and fully equipped kitchen with some of the original 400 years old floortiles preserved.

The apartment has two bedrooms with double bed (140x200cm.), both with an en suite bathroom. One bedroom is located in the back of the basement. The other one on the groundfloor, connected to the apartment by internal stairs. Although the location is very central, you'll find out that you hardly won't hear anything from the streets in your bedrooms.


- modern decoration

- smart TV

- WiFi (free)

- external disk with approximately 100 movies

- coffee and tea included

- fully equipped kitchen

- floorheating

The place is very warm and furnished with an eye for detail, and perfectly suited for two couples, a family, two friends or business men/women to retreat and discover Amsterdam.

About Synco Wijnberg

I like hosting in our guesthouse and so meeting wonderful people from all over the world.

As an Amsterdam born I love strolling around in this beautiful city of mine. Although it is a city, it often feels more like a small village: a friendly atmosphere, many, many bikers, narrow alleys and it's easy to feel at home, to feel like you're a local. I hope you will enjoy Mokum (that's the name of Amsterdam in slang) as much as I do.

Last 2 years, my wife Nancy and I have been renovating an old farmhouse in rural Portugal.

I have been working for 20 years in Human Resources.

Why Synco Wijnberg chose Amsterdam

Without exaggeration I can say that this is one of the most beautiful spots in town.

My wife Nancy and I were very lucky to obtain this property in which we are living with so much pleasure.

After re-foundation of the house, we have the basement converted into a guesthouse with all comfort that makes a stay enjoyable.

What makes this apartment unique

- super central location

- quiet and comfortable guesthouse

- modern with look & feel from the glorious past of 17th century Amsterdam

- suitable for 2 couples or a family travelling together. Two separate bedrooms & bathrooms

- private entrance
