Canal Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 days in May and loved this apartment. The hosts are delightful! It is in the middle of everything you want to do as a tourist in Amsterdam. We were able to walk to all of Amsterdam's attractions and Central Station was a 15 minute walk for day trips. Supermarkets were close as well. It has a great view of the canal that we enjoyed each morning at breakfast and then again in the evenings as we would unwind after a day of sightseeing. The bedroom is in the back of the house and is very quiet for a good nights sleep. We would definitely stay here again.

Super place!

  • 5 of 5

I have little to add to the other glowing reviews! This is a great apartment, in a very nice location and easy walking, or tram to all the major attractions. Very nicely decorated flat with lovely hosts! I was surprised to watch my bags being lifted up on the outside of the building! I would come back in a heartbeat! Just note that the last staircase is almost a ladder, so if you have a mobility issue, maybe another place is better for you.

Perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautifully situated and maintained and our hosts were most gracious. We stayed for six days in June and found the location perfect for our needs with a 15 minute walk to the station for day trips out of town and within walking distance of many of Amsterdam's attractions. We enjoyed sitting in the window in the late evening, eating our meal and watching the people pass on the canal below. Supermarket and other stores were close by.

Great apartment in Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and close to everything. About two blocks to the tram line, and 15 minute walk to Central Station. Grocery stores, coffee shops and restaurants all very close by. The owners were very helpful, assuring us that the apartment would be available early in the day to accomodate our early flight into Amsterdam. My wife and I stayed for a week in September 2014, and would definitely stay with the Martins again.

Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

The canal house was truly wonderful. Centrally located, but on a quiet residential street. Its lots of fun to watch all the people go by on the canal. Gives you an authentic taste of living in Amsterdam! We would without a doubt stay here again.

Great Apartment, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this very Dutch apt for 4 nights. The hosts are very lovely and welcoming. Although we spoke no Dutch or German, and they spoke little English-there was no problem communicating at all. The location is perfect-not in the middle of everything, but within easy walking distances to major sites in Amsterdam Central. The apt. was very clean, nicely furnished and very comfortable. I enjoyed the fabulous view of the Herengracht canal every day! As with most homes here-there are several steps up narrow staircases to get to the third floor apt-but this was no problem for me and my husband. The ever present hook and pulley system outside takes all the work out of carrying luggage upstairs. I whole heartedly recommend this apt and these hosts for a wonderful stay in Amsterdam. You will enjoy this comfortable self catering apt at a great location!!

Car: not necessary

There is plenty to see in the Dutch capital: museums, historical buildings, the wax museum and the Vondelpark. Our apartment is centrally located, right on Amsterdams famous Gracht in the centre. Tram stop, pedestrian area, dam, 9 Straatjes, Jordan, night shop and supermarket (open till 10 every night) are all a few minutes away by foot. The bible, war and theatre museum is 5 minutes away. It takes twenty minutes to the Reijks, van Gogh and Stedelijkmuseums.
