Overview

Amsterdam Apartment Rental Photos and Description

(nearby Central Station, museums, shops and restaurants)

Cosy 1 bedroom apartment in a historic canal house in a quiet and very popular residential area on the Amsterdam city island 'Prinseneiland', The island is like an old fashioned village within the center of Amsterdam, and is inhabited by a nice mixture of artists, expats and traditional Amsterdam people, close to the canals and main city’s attractions.

The apartment has a very nice feel with an 'authentic' style, an open, fully equipped kitchen in the living-room, a private bathroom with shower, wireless internet, a TV with international channels and of course a coffee maker. There are a double bed and a couch that can accommodate up to 3/4 people.

Everything in this apartment is in great condition!

The neighbourhood is ideal located at about a 10 minutes walking distance from the busy city center with lots of restaurants and shops, The Ann Frank House, the Central Railway Station, the Red Light District, Dam Square and Westerpark and 3 nice markets on Mondays (arts and crafts-), Wednesdays (organic-) and Saturdays (farmers-).

In short, the perfect place to stay when in Amsterdam!

Dutch Charm

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in many VRBO apartments but I would say this one in Amsterdam is one of the loveliest. The neighbourhood is an artistic oasis close enough to all the tourists sites but surrounded by Dutch charm. Our host Emmy was welcoming .... so knowlegable and friendly. She made us feel right at home from the day we arrived. The apartment itself was so cute and cozy. I particularly liked the area it is located in. You felt like you could experience Amsterdam like a local. I would recommend Emmy's apartment with top marks for decor, location, and connivence. We thank her so much for making our trip to Amsterdam perfect.

As aside one of the best restaurants in Amsterdam is very nearby. If you get a chance Marius is a special treat.

A little serenity in crazy Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for us! It is in a quiet neighborhood, tucked away from all the craziness that is just a few blocks away. Emmy was a great host and available for every question we had. She had some great recommendations for places to eat and things not to miss. She even has bikes to rent. Make sure you check out her amazing art throughout the apartment. We wanted to buy some but couldn't figure out how to get it home with us! We would come back in a heartbeat.

Great Apartment and Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Great neighborhood! My husband and I loved the location-close to everything but allows you to get away from the hustle and bustle (which we loved). Quiet little tucked away neighborhood but is only a short walk up to restaurants and shops. Apartment was very clean and Emmy was a great host. I highly recommend this apartment- we would love to come back!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Quiet neighbourhood but very close to tram, buses so very easy to get around Amsterdam. Only 15 minutes walk from Central Station (Train). Lovely apartment with gracious host. We had everything we needed and highly recommend this place. Thanks Emmy for everything.

A magical apartment and neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful apartment made our trip to Amsterdam unforgettable. The apartment was absolutely lovely and so comfortable, and Emmy was a wonderful and very gracious host. It is just as described, and we can only echo others' praise. We loved the neighborhood and quickly felt at home, and we are still talking about our favorite neighborhood restaurant. A perfect base in Amsterdam!

Perfect host, location and amenities

  • 5 of 5

We have loved coming "home" to this wonderfully appointed cozy home in the Jordaan. Public transportation is near, the supermarket is close by, and the Harlaam shopping district make this the perfect stop for a short or long term stay. Emmy has also been very helpful as our "go-to" guide when we needed aid to navigate the area. The apartment is cute, well-appointed and exactly what my husband and I were looking for in a safe neighborhood with so much to offer. Don't hesitate booking this ground floor apartment (in a city where 3rd and 4th floors are the norm) - you won't be disappointed!
