PEACEFUL APARTMENT IN THE OLD HISTORICAL CENTRE

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.

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

Spring in Amsterdam

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 01-Apr-2014
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2014
This was an excellent location in a delightful area - well place for visiting most sites. We mostly walked to Museums & Galleries, but the station is 15 minutes walk, & trams & buses can be accessed there. Peter 's welcome was friendly & efficient, & the apartment clean & well maintained. The recommendations for restaurants in the area were good - especially enjoyed Eetcafe van Beeren. A good supermarket ( Albert Heijn ) is at the end of the street.
Owner's Response: Hello David & Kathleen,

First of all, thank you both very much for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay. I know the UK had a rather damp winter and that you enjoyed some Spring-like weather during your week in Amsterdam. You have kindly reinforced many of the key selling points in respect of the convenient central location.

I’m also pleased to hear that you had the opportunity to visit some of the local restaurants that we (and previous guests) have recommended. The small selection we recommend are tried and tested, with the added advantage that they do not necessarily target the tourist market, and cater mainly for locals. We would be happy to include any of your own restaurant recommendations so that future guests may also try.

It was Peter’s pleasure to welcome you both to Amsterdam and we hope that you return in the future. In the meantime, let me wish a great Summer and thanks again for the review.

Best regards,
Marcos

Fantastico

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 21-Mar-2014
  • Date of Stay: Jun 2013
We spent two weeks last summer in this lovely apartment, and we're ready to go back. The place is gorgeous, well-equipped, well-managed, and Peter was very responsive. We've rented more than a dozen short-term vacation apartments in Europe, and this was definitely the best!
Owner's Response: Hello Carmen & family,

Thank you so much for your review. Your comments are most welcome and very kind. It seems like so long ago since you stayed and we're pleased to know that you haven't forgotten us.

It is important for us to make a great first impression to all of our guests. Our guests are not dealing with a company or multiple apartment owner. This apartment is/was my home and we want our guests to enjoy it as their own home during their stay.

Of course, Peter is totally invaluable through providing a first class service and a warm welcome to each of our guests.

It is great to hear that you're planning to return to the Amsterdam and we look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Best regards,

Marcos

Charmante Wohnung in idealer Lage

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 06-Mar-2014
  • Date of Stay: Feb 2014
Diese Wohnung hat uns sehr gut gefallen, Sie ist sehr gut ausgestattet, das Bett ist wunderbar, sie hat Charme. Die Lage für die Erkundung der Stadt und der Umgebung ist ideal: wir konnten alles fußläufig unternehmen, auch der Weg zum Amsterdamer Hauptbahnhof ist kurz: und es gibt mehrere Möglichkeiten dort hinzukommen.
Die Betreuung und Abwicklung durch Vermieter und Schlüsselübergeber waren vorbildlich.
Rainer und Henri im Februar 2014
Owner's Response: Hello Rainer & Henri,
We are delighted to hear that you both enjoyed your stay at our Apartment.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review and for sharing your experience. (Peter will write a reponse in German and post it shortly on this website).

However, for the none German speakers who might be reading this, I can confirm that you enjoyed the facilities of the apartment and, of course, the convenient central location.

We try hard to provide a personal service and it's pleasing to hear that our guests appreciate this.

Thanks again for the review and we hope you come back soon!

Best regards,

Marcos

New Years Getaway

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 11-Jan-2014
  • Date of Stay: Dec 2013
We stayed at the apartment over a very wet/windy new year and it proved to be a great escape from both the weather and the crowds when we needed it. We opted to walk to the apartment, which was very simple, reaching it within about 20mins after a few wrong turns (my fault not the provided directions -15mins on the return leg). Upon arrival we were met, given keys and a thorough walk-through the apartment and it's amenities. It had everything and more (welcome champagne and chocolate was a lovely surprise and perfect for NYE), was comfortable and very spacious.

The rental process and return of deposit was quick and simple, the provided information (directions, places to see etc) was comprehensive and lastly, the location was great -near enough to the RLD area (primarily nieuwmarkt), but enough streets away for a peaceful time.

We would certainly return and would love to experience the place in the summer. Do not hesitate to book this apartment.
Owner's Response: Hello Chi-Mun,

As our last guest of 2013 (and first of 2014) it’s great to hear that you and Richard enjoyed the apartment and appreciated the central location. Obviously, it’s a shame that the weather at New Year wasn’t so inviting on this trip.

You made the very sensible decision by booking your New Year accommodation in June 2013. Christmas/New Year are very busy weeks in the City and hotels/apartments fill up fast.

We try hard to make the booking process simple and we make every effort respond quickly to guest emails and provide additional vacation advice if/when requested.

We would love you to return to Amsterdam in the near future although it is impossible for us to promise hot sunny weather.

Thanks again for taking the time to write a review and the recommendation. Every review helps future guests make a more informed judgement when choosing accommodation.

We wish you both a very Happy New Year!

Best regards,

Marcos,

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.
