Charming studio appartment in a good position near museums and shops.

  • 5 of 5

Charming studio appartment just behind Prisengracht canal in an authentic house which is well situated with shops, museums etc. in easy walking distance. The landlady, Charlotte, who lives above the studio, could not have been more welcoming, with home baked bread too! She provided a detailed guide to restaurants and places of interest marked on a map with full details of all in a separate booklet. As it was January the studio was a bit cold but Charlotte increased the heating on request and provided extra bedding too.

I would thoroughly recommend this studio for two people but you need to climb narrow winding stairs, which is all part of its charm. We will definitely be returning!

A Memorable Home

  • 5 of 5

Well equiped and central. Steep stairs can be overcome but not for those with arthritic knees. Charlotte was marvelous in helping us settle in and stocking the fridge. Her home made bread was great. The flat is well cared for and central although it took us few days to work out our way around the canals. WE would stay there again.

I will also copy a previous guest.....'It is a pleasure to highly recommend this apartment'.

My husband and I wanted a flat in the Old Canal District; and what a perfect location!!

Take a short walk along a canal and you're at Rembrandtplein, or Leidesplein.

Charlotte baked us fresh bread and it would have been warm had we not arrived later than she expected us.

The apartment is beautiful, and fully stocked.

Stylish apartment - Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

I will copy the introduction of the previous guest: "It is a pleasure to highly recommend this apartment". Charlotte thank you for hosting me in a such short notice to your lovely and perfectly decorated apartment (black 'n' white 'n' red are my colours also - remember? : ) ). The apartment was just what I needed in order to enjoy the city, to relax after a long (Greek) year and to feel comfortable within a space made in highly good taste. Amazing sleeping area with a large bed looking at the garden. Charlotte has done a great job with maps and recommedations about the city's most interesting spots and sights. A total recommendation for singles and couples either for the first time in Amsterdam or for comebackers like my self. Enjoy!

Delightful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

It is a pleasure to highly recommend this apartment. Actually we did not stay in this particular apartment but rather the owners apartment in the same building one floor up. We expressed an interest in the place posted and when that was already booked, Charlotte the owner, offered her place which proved to be just perfect. Charlotte greeted us with a freshly baked loaf of bread, a bottle of wine, and a thorough briefing of all her apartment had to offer as well markets, restaraunts, museums, etc. that she recommended. The place was spotless and contained every imaginable need. It's location was also a plus, within minutes to all the major museums, daily and weekly markets, nightly entertainment and a host of great restaraunts in every price range. We met the people renting the Studio King & Queen apartment below us and they two enjoyed the apartments location and how secure and quiet it was. The only obstacle would be the winding staircase(s) for those with health issues. For those of us that lead active lives, they proved to be a good workout and warm up for a day of adventure in this fabulous city. Thank you Charolotte for your hospitality.

Amsterdam Oasis: Quiet Apartment in Outer Canal Ring

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our Amsterdam apartment where we recently spent a full week. Although Charlotte lists this as a studio, it's really more like a one-bedroom apartment. The sleeping area is small, but a definite sleeping space. The kitchen was great, and even had a diswasher. Clothe washer/dryer was in the adequate bathroom. We loved the Nespresso coffee maker so much, we bought one the day we returned home. The furnishings were simple but efficient and comfortable, and we had plenty of room. The computer was very nice to have available. The homemade bread Charlotte baked for us was delightful. We walked the entire canal area with ease. This was simply the best place we could have chosen to stay. The only negatives we can report are related to the narrow spiral staircase into the apartment, which could be problematic for those with disabilities. Security is incredible, with three locks (and keys) into and out of building. We would definitely like to return to Amsterdam and this apartment.
