About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

KGrachthome apartment situated on the Keizersgracht canal on the first floor. It is on the border of the Jordaan district and near the house of Anne Frank. The view on the canal is beautiful as the Keizersgracht canal makes a bend just here, allowing a view up to the Brouwersgracht.

The apartment has a separate bedroom with 2 single beds and has plenty of space for luggage.

Walk to the '9 straatjes' with trendy shops (1 minute), to Dam Square / Kalverstraat (5 minutes) or to the Leidseplein / Vondelpark. (10 minutes).

Most people rank it 5 stars. And they are right. Only do not expect a jacuzi like a 5 star hotel would have. The pictures will show what you get.

Canal Apartment With A View

  • 5 of 5

My wife, Caroline, and I stayed for a week at this apartment, after a two week trans-Atlantic cruise from Ft Lauderdale, FL. We absolutely loved this place and its central location, within minutes from everything. This was immensely helped by the very congenial and helpful owner, Marcel, who provided us with pre-loaded transport cards, which work on the tram, buses and trains. Marcel along with his wife, who live in the building, were also very helpful with directions and local recommendations. He even printed out some documents I needed. The flat, itself, is very comfortable, with a very good shower and comfortable beds. Not luxurious, but very functional and comfortable. The price reflects that very adequately. The view out the enormous windows, overlooking the canal is "to die for". We could have just sat there watching the world go by for the entire week and certainly spent a fair amount doing just that. Given the central location, the amazing view and the wonderful owners right there in the same building, this is a wonderful place, I would recommend to anyone!

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for six nights late-December and early-January 2018. We found the apartment to be well-equipped, comfortable and in a great location. It is located in the Jordaan and in easy walking distance of all that we wanted to do, as well as cafes, bars and shopping. Amsterdam was very cold but the apartment was very cosy and a great place to come home to at the end of each day.

Perfect location and excellent accomodation

  • 5 of 5

In the center of everything you want to see in Amsterdam, with grocery, restaurants and taxi or public transport. The view from the living room window to the canal outside makes it perfect. Hop on Hop off bus and canal boat stop locations at the corner.

Overall very good

  • 4 of 5

This is an excellent location close to the Anne Frank House, trams and buses. Beautiful windows overlooking the Keizersgracht canal from the comfortable living room. The bedroom was a little cramped--hard to open closets--but the bed was comfortable and room was quiet, in the back of the house. Lighting is a little dim throughout the place. Kitchen was well-stocked and host Marcel was gracious and accommodating, providing prepaid chip cards for public transportation during our stay. Not fancy, but a very good choice overall in a wonderful location!

Great Apartment with Great View of Canal and Close to Popular Sites

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week in this apartment in mid-September 2017 and really enjoyed our stay there. The apartment is on the second floor and the stairs thankfully weren't too narrow as we have had on other stays we have had in Europe. There are very large windows that overlook one of the main canals of Amsterdam which is probably the best thing about the apartment. We both loved sitting next to the windows in the morning and evening and just watching the canal boats, bikes and people going by.

The apartment is only about a one minute walk to a tram stop which can take you directly into the old central section of Amsterdam. An added bonus is that Marcel, the apartment owner, provided us with two OV-Chipkaarts pre-loaded with 50 euros on each of them so we could freely use them on the trams, buses and trains. He only asked us to pay him for the ChipKaart funds we used during our stay. That was very helpful for us and we easily rode the trams and train in and out of Amsterdam using these Chipkaarts.

The toilet of the apartment is in a separate room off the hallway and the bathroom has a nice shower and sink off the bedroom. The beds are soft but comfortable. The apartment is fairly quiet at night and the kitchen is fine. There is a gas range with one burner that doesn't work and the refrigerator is typical for Europe with a freezer. Utensils are on the sparse side but OK for two people. Not a modern apartment, but it was fine for us.

Overall, we would certainly book this apartment again and would highly recommend it for two people who are looking to be close to all the sites of Amsterdam with a great view of one of the main canals (Keizersgracht) of this historic European canal city.

Beautiful Apartment

  • 4 of 5

This is a very well maintained and equipped apartment. As others have said it is a great location and has a wonderful and ever changing view. I agree with the favourable comments and we really enjoyed the week we spent here. If you are a light sleeper you should be aware that the church bells that kept Anne Frank in touch with the outside world still ring every hour and half hour.
