About the property

In the heart of Amsterdam

Near to AnneFrank's house

In the middle of Jordaan

Tastefully decorated

Very peaceful looking to the garden

Our apartment is situated in a house on the Prinsengracht, one of the most beautiful and lively canals in the city centre. Dated 1730 and fully renovated, it stands in the residential and smart shopping area called Jordaan. Jordaan is the most popular and historic part of town with small cafes, bars, restaurants, boutiques, and on Saturdays and Mondays organic and antique markets. The house has a nice view of the inside garden. Within walking distance of Central train station (10min), Anne Frank’s House (1 min), Damsquare (8 min), shopping streets (9 straatjes, Haarlemer street, Kalver street )(5-10 min) and museums (Rijks museum, Vangogh museum, Hermitage ) (20-30 min). A minibus serves the canals every 20 min and stops at request. To really see Amsterdam one needs to do a canal tour. We have our own small boats so we can arrange private boat trips - also in the evenings when most bridges and private and public houses are illuminated – or picnics on the Amsterdam canals. One can rent bicycles everywhere. Public transportation is close and car traffic is almost nonexistent. Amsterdam is a very quiet city compared to other major ones. "

Perfect location and amazing helpful owners!

We loved the location and feeling as though we were home. We were in Amsterdam when it was very hot, a fan would of helped, but it doesn't get hot in Amsterdam. Thank you for sharing your apartment.

Comfy bed and the best location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was PERFECT for our weekend stay in Amsterdam. It is in a charming and lovely neighborhood with many sites within walking distance. Anne Frank house is 10 min away and the museum district was only a 30 min scenic walk. There were tons of stores, cafes and restaurants nearby along with the main train station which was a 15 min walk.

The apartment was the perfect size for my cousin and I. The doors open out to look over a lovely garden and allowed for a great breeze to cool down the apt. Everything was clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. The wifi was good although we had one moment where we had to tinker with the modem to reboot the signal. The stairs to the apt are quite steep and while not a problem for us, it could be difficult for people with disabilities or a ton of luggage.

All in all: perfect location. Clean and comfortable. Reasonable price as well.

We would definitely recommend staying here!

Cute little studio right in the heart of a lively neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay here. It is located on a canal in the Jordaan district which is lively with cafes, shopping, restaurants, bars and an organic and antique market part of the week. It is also only an 10 min walk from Amsterdam Centraal and Cido's walking directions were crystal clear. We didn't get to meet Cido but her husband Rob was very warm and accommodating. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is there was construction and drilling going on in the unit below us the day we got there -- we were traveling and hadn't slept the night before and just wanted to pass out for a few hours in the afternoon but It was impossible because the drilling was about 6 inches from our heads! Also scaffolding went up our last day there, blocking our beautiful garden view for a day. I understand these things are difficult to control, as obviously this is a normal apartment building not a hotel, but it would've been nice to have a heads up! Not too big of a deal because it only really affected us one day, but if I was on my Honeymoon I would definitely have been more upset! Overall a beautiful place to stay in one of the best Districts in Amsterdam.

Great stay in Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

Amazing stay at Cido's place in Amsterdam. The room is cute & tiny but all you really need for a few day stay for 1 or 2 people. The location is perfect, we walked everywhere. Only a few minutes away from Anne Frank Haus & a short walk to other sites in the city. The farthest walk is the Heineken Experience which is about 30 min away walking. Never got to meet Cido due to our schedules conflicting but she was very helpful & everything worked out perfectly. Would strongly recommend.

My husband and I loved this apartment. It is beautifully appointed, quiet with a garden view and everything you need. The location is perfect for sites, dining and shopping. The hospitality of Rob and Cido was beyond anything we could imagine. They are so friendly and helpful - amazing!! We wish we could have stayed longer. Everything was so comfortable, clean and attractive. It was an easy stay in every way. Thank you again to Rob and Cido!

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Cigdem is easy to communicate with and accommodating. Apartment is clean, comfortable, and very reasonably priced. Location is the BEST!!! Away from the tourist crowds, and walking distance to many dining options and sites. Neighborhood is safe and walkable. It's a 10 minute walk to the train station and to the tram stop. Use the public transportation - it's outstanding! My wife and I cannot say enough wonderful things about our visit to Amsterdam. We also took day trips to Haarlem and Utrecht. Be adventurous. You will love this place!
