Binnenstad Rental Photos and Description

Studio Apartment or guest room for 2 - 6 persons, respectively

We offer a romantic attic-studio on the top floor in a historic canal house in Amsterdam, built in 1607. Because of its nice location close to the Oudezijds Achterburgwal, the attic studio offers a romantic view over the namesake canal and over the roofs of Amsterdam. From the 2 room apartment you can look out over the canal as well, and over the historical canal houses with the typical back garden. In the same house you will find a guest’s room as well, equipped for 2 or 3 persons with a private bathroom available.

Arrival by airplane/train:: From the airport Schiphol by NS regional train to the ‘Central Station'. From there it is an approximately 10 minute walk, or 1 stop by metro to 'Nieuwmarkt'.

Arrival by car, parking: Unfortunately, there are only chargeable parking in Amsterdam.

Our recommendation:

The low prices park+ride parking lot Zeeburg, 6 EUR per 24 h, including a tram ticket for the return to the centre (subject to change).

Do you have questions? We will be happy to help!: We, a friendly agency with 2 persons in Berlin, convey chosen, well-kept private accommodations in the large metropolises in Europe for 17 years.

Amsterdam is one of our personal favourites. We recommend the attic-studio in the canal house '1607' especially because of its central location in the middle of the historic old town, its romantic view through the spacious glass façade, the flair of a canal house and its reasonable price.

The friendly host from Amsterdam speaks good German and very good English and will be on site to answer all your questions!

Bonne surprise

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été accueilli par Mark, un homme très gentil et très respectueux. La chambre été parfaite, la salle de bain partagée n'était pas un gros problème puisqu'il y avait seulement une personne avec qui la partager. La maison donne sur un super petit canal, en plein centre d'Amsterdam. Que du bonheur, rien de mauvais! Il faut juste faire attention aux escaliers qui sont un peu raides (comme dans toutes les maisons d'Amsterdam d'ailleurs!). Merci encore à Mark et Petra pour ce superbe séjour dans leur maison parfaite!

Not a good experience

  • 1 of 5

We were shown to the room by Rob, not Mark, whom we had been told we'd be meeting. Rob was reasonably welcoming but seemed overly concerned that we'd somehow be ripping him off by packing extra people into the room which was odd since the room was tiny. The room smelled strongly of cigarette smoke, with an undertone of cat urine. The grubby, old bathroom had black mold on the walls. The accommodation was too small for 4, was completely devoid of charm (blurb on VRBO mentioned "romantic"), and had to have the window open to the very noisy street below to air out the smell. It was too close to the red light district to be appropriate for families or anyone who wanted to sleep. Not sure where the "wonderful views" were, but the narrow canal in this section was dirty, and the house itself surrounded by sex shops and "coffee" (wink wink) shops. Contacted the property manager about my concerns and was met with excuses.

Centraal Station
Car: not necessary

Thanks to the very central location, you can discover Amsterdam easily on foot or by bike. To the Amsterdam Main Station, the 'Central Station,' you just have to walk about 10 minutes. The connections for the public transportation are very good (tram, bus, subway, regional train). The Oudezijds Achterburgwal is one of the oldest canals (waterway) in Amsterdam. The Northern part of this canal is located in the lively red light district 'de Wallen', in the Southern, quieter part there is e.g. the Amsterdam university, the listed monument Binnengasthuis and the romantic Oudemanhuispoort (book market). The accommodation is located in the middle of the canal, exactly at that spot where the lively red light district and the quieter, Southern part with the university district meet.
