Overview

Amsterdam Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Very homely and good location.

Our clean and cosy canal-facing apartment is right next to the famous Jordaan area and a 10 minute tram ride from central station. It is located on the first floor so there are not too many stairs to climb after a long day of sight seeing.

It is within walking distance to all the sights (10 mins Anne Frank's, 15 mins Dam Square) yet not in the tourist area so you can mingle with the locals! Public transport is also close by if you prefer.

We enjoy travel ourselves so are able to rent our apartment during these periods. This will make this your home away from home with everything you need.

There are original features dating back to the 1920’s such as high ceilings and wooden floors throughout.

There are also plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants to choose from in the neighborhood. I can also make some recommendations for you.

Some highlights;

-Canal Views

-Free WiFi

-Free Maps and bike rental information

-1 bedroom with double bed and balcony

-Dining Table for 4 people

-Fresh bed linen and towels provided

-Fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher

-Bedroom with balcony overlooking quaint gardens

-TV/DVD

-Quiet and safe street

-Sofa bed in living area (extra people additional charge)

There is a small shower room and toilet (typically Dutch!) but there is no bathtub.

By the way, there is also a supermarket on the corner that is open 7 days a week (usually from 9am until 10pm) that is also very convenient for your stay and even a night shop that is open until 2am if you need it.

It will comfortably accommodate 2 people but there is also a sofa bed for 2 additional guests in the living area.

Please get in touch straight away with any questions, we would like you to have a memorable stay in this special city. I will usually reply to inquiries within a couple of hours (depending on the time difference) and can help you with directions and public transport information once your booking is confirmed.

We will treat our guests how we like to be treated and look forward to hearing from you or meeting you soon!

We had a wonderful experience both in the property and with our hosts. Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

Right from the initial contact until we departed our hosts were most helpful. They had all sorts of suggestions as we were planning our stay and helped us with directions and options about how to get to their apartment. When we were met by our hosts getting off the tram from the train station, we knew we were in good hands.

The apartment is on the first floor, so there are some stairs to climb to get there. The view is very nice and the neighborhood is great. There are some restaurants, grocery stores and shops nearby, but it is generally very quiet and residential. However, you can also walk to the center of Amsterdam in about 25 minutes.

The apartment is open and comfortable with two small balconies, one facing the street/canal and one facing the back courtyard. It is not luxurious, but very warm and functional. The rooms are pleasant, the bed is comfortable, including the pull out couch that was used by our daughter.

I'd highly recommend this apartment and plan to stay there on our return to Amsterdam!

Beautiful clean little apartment in old Amsterdam.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Amsterdam to run the Amsterdam marathon and found the apartment both central for the city and convenient for the marathon location at the Olympic Stadium. Overlooking a canal and very near tram links, the apartment is a great location. It is approached by very steep stairs, which means it may not be suitable for people with disabilities or babies and very young children, but bigger kids will love it. The apartment is compact, but was easily big enough for three of us. It was also impeccably clean and Eva was very welcoming. I would thoroughly recommend it for a short (and maybe longer) stay.

Perfectly Lovely

  • 4 of 5

My husband was attending a tech conference and he and I went a week early for a quick vacation. I wanted to be on a canal in a quiet yet active location in an old, beautiful apartment and this is exactly what I found, after looking at over 100 listings. It's on the 2nd (in America) floor, up the steepest set of stairs I've ever seen, and opens up to French doors on the canal overlooking houseboats and another set in the bedroom to the hammock and back courtyard. It's very traditional Dutch, you can see the tram line from the front windows. I couldn't say enough about the charm of this place and the helpfulness if the owners. Grocery and cafe within 2 minute walk.

Look no further

  • 5 of 5

This great little apartment felt perfect from the first moment we walked into it. I loved sitting on the comfy sectional at the end of day, looking out over a canal and viewing the people of Amsterdam as they headed home on their bicycles. Eva was friendly and helpful,providing us with everything from maps to milk to local transportation tips. Yes, the stairs are steep and the bathroom small from a Canadian point of view, but it just felt more 'European ' that way. I did find the bed too soft for my liking, but the sofa bed was fine. As for location, we walked everywhere, including the Museumplein, Anne Frank House, the Nine Streets, Vondelpark, but there were easy tram routes if you prefer. Great find!

Outstanding Location, Feels Like Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment to get a real "feel" for Amsterdam while still having extremely convenient access to the wealth of sites that the city has to offer. The unit itself is very warmly decorated, making it feel like you're coming home after a long day of sightseeing. Plenty of books, DVDs, CDs and some games are available, and a fully stocked kitchen makes it easy to prepare meals after visiting the nearby grocery store - assuming you don't walk to any one of the numerous excellent restaurants in the immediate area (Fuoco Vivo, Moeder's, CoffeePlaza and Foodhalen to name a few). Large windowed doors open up to a small balcony overlooking the canal at the front of the apartment while the bedroom and kitchen offer balconies looking to a quaint courtyard. The building is remarkably quiet at night, which is impressive considering the so much is available within a minute or two's walk, including the tram. Our hosts, Eva and Teresa, were a pleasure to work with from beginning to end, which makes the entire experience that much better. We couldn't have asked for more during our stay and certainly look forward to a return visit.
