Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Amsterdam Old Centre

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

This welcoming holiday apartment is situated in an historic converted warehouse overlooking a typical Amsterdam canal. The development is extremely peaceful and only a short walking distance to Central station with very good access to Metro stations (Nieuwmarkt and Waterloo Plein), tram and bus services.

The apartment is on the same street as the world famous Gassan Diamond. The closest attractions include, Opera House, Rembrandt House, Hermitage Museum, Jewish/Portuguese Synagogue, Dam Square, NEMO and the Maritime museum. There is a diverse selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and galleries nearby to explore.

As you enter the historic warehouse building you will be surprised at the modern communal courtyard gardens within. The development also benefits from a modern entrance security system and an elevator to help you get to/from the 3rd floor apartment with your luggage or shopping. The apartment has a comfortable and modern interior with delightful views over the canal.

If you want all of the convenience of a great central location in Amsterdam and demand a safe, comfortable and peaceful place to stay, then this apartment is for you.

Many Amsterdam houses and flats have steep staircases to gain access. This apartment has a lift which negates the need to climb stairs.

Many visitors to the city choose to hire bicycles during their stay. One of the main cycle hire companies is only a short walk from the apartment. You can also park your bike(s) off the street in the residents parking area. This can only be reached by residents and the community is gated.

We are happy to provide specific advice for your visit to make the most of your stay. This might include recommending a local Thai restaurant or give you ideas of places to visit outside the city should you choose.

Other rental options may be available for those staying over 1 week and we would be happy to negotiate a discount on our advertised rates.

IMPORTANT CONTACT INFORMATION

First of all, let me introduce myself - my name is Marcos Moura Vieira and I own this property which was my home in Amsterdam for a number of years. The apartment is now offered as a cosy holiday let and is ideal for visitors because of the Central location.

I have the help of 2 friends in managing the apartment and looking after our guests.

Firstly, Eric Longstaff (UK based) looks after most of the day-to-day administration on my behalf. If you have any booking enquiries or payment questions then Eric can be contacted via our usual email address or by phone:

If calling from outside of the United Kingdom then please dial:

+44 7800 600000

If you are calling from the UK then dial 07800 600000.

Peter Arink (Netherlands based) meets and greets our guests on my behalf. If you have already booked the apartment and need to speak to Peter regarding arrival times or if you experience any problems during your stay then he can be reached by phone on:

If calling from a non Netherlands registered telephone please dial: +31 6250 91235.

Fantastic Apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Utterly delighted after our stay in this apartment. Within easy reach of everything, very central location yet quiet. Clean, incredible attention to detail with fantastic views of the canal. A very warm reception from Peter on arrival together with the welcome pack and information provided made our stay very memorable.

We have stayed in many other holiday apartments but this one was in another class altogether, definitely value for money.

Special thanks for allowing us to check out late at no extra cost and to Eric and Marcos for making the booking so easy.

I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting from apartment owners in Europe for over twenty-five years. This was the best experience of them all: thoroughly professional and friendly. The location is fantastic. The apartment was exactly as described. We can't wait to return.

Tip-top flat in super location: book this one now!

  • 5 of 5

Our favorite vacation rental ever! The apartment is in a perfect location (walking distance to just about everywhere you want to go in Amsterdam) and extremely comfortable. The ample living/dining area overlooks a charming canal, with close up views from the cozy balcony. Super service from the owner at all points of the booking and rental experience.

We loved all the attention to detail, including obvious fastidiousness with cleaning (something very important to us) and ample supplies of items too often missing from most rental units. Here, you're stocked with laundry detergent, bath soap, toilet and kitchen paper, etc, not to mention kitchen basics, like coffee, sugar, milk, etc. And then there is no end of endearing touches, like 2 dozen gorgeous roses of all hues, fine chocolates and cashews, a great bottle of wine, to name just a few.

Furnishings are comfy and functional and the decor is pleasing. The Bosch washer and dryer are awesome (thank you very much!), the kitchen while small is super efficient, hot water is HOT and plentiful, wifi rapid and reliable. We love the place and will be back for a longer stay.

What a treat!

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with our accommodation. The listing was accurate, the property clean and well maintained, both the owner and manager provided service over and above what we expected. We had a very warm welcome from the manager. We have already recommended the property to anybody who will listen. It is so central that the nearby/easily accessible attractions and restaurants are too numerous to mention.

Perfect stay in Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

We were met at the accommodation by the manager who was very welcoming and helpful. There were 20 red roses, chocolates, other nibbles and several bottles of wine waiting for us in the apartment on our arrival. The apartment had everything we needed. It was clean, very well appointed and quiet. It was central to the everything we wanted to go to and within easy walking distance of the central railway station. We would strongly recommend this to anyone planning to stay in Amsterdam for short or long stays.

Welcome to the 'old side' (Oude Zidje) of Amsterdam in the heart of the city centre. This welcoming holiday apartment is situated in an historic converted warehouse overlooking a typical Amsterdam canal. The development is extremely peaceful and only a short walking distance to Central station with very good access to Metro stations (NieuwMarkt and Waterloo Plein), tram and bus services. However, with such a central location it is unlikely you will need transportation unless you wish to explore further afield.

The apartment is on the same street as the world famous Gassan Diamond factory/museum. The closest attractions include, Opera House (Muziektheater), Rembrandt House/square, Hermitage Museum, Jewish/Portuguese Synagogue, Amsterdam Historic Museum, NEMO and the Maritime museum. There is a diverse selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and galleries nearby to explore.

You can easily reach all of the most famous attractions in Amsterdam: Museum Quarter (Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum), Dam Square, Amsterdam Zoo, Anne-Frank house, Royal Palace, Oude Kerk,

As you enter the historic warehouse building you will be surprised at the modern communal courtyard gardens within. At the canal side of the development you can take full advantage of a private picnic/seating area in quiet surroundings and watch the boats pass by. The development also benefits from a modern entrance security system and an elevator to help you get to/from the 3rd floor apartment with your luggage or shopping. Furthermore, if you do decide to hire bikes during your stay you can find secure bicycle parking within the development.

The apartment has a comfortable and modern interior with delightful views over the canal.

Whether this is your first visit to the city or you're a frequent visitor, we trust you will have a pleasant and memorable stay in Amsterdam. If you would like specific advice on local restaurants or activities to suit your specific needs, then we would be more than happy to help in anyway we can.
