===========================================

This Amsterdam canal apartment is located on the bottom two floors: the “souterrain” floor and the “beletage” (piano nobile) floor. These two floors are connected with an interior staircase. One enters the Snug Sonnenberg apartment on the souterrain, which is a semi-lowered (half below and half above street-level) ground floor. The beletage floor is half a floor above streetlevel and has a 3.5 meter high ceiling, with 2.5 meter high canal view windows running the width of the building.

Upon entering the souterrain the massive beams that support the beletage are quite impressive. This floor has an open kitchen with dining area, as well as a very comfortable sofa that is also a double bed when folded out. The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern comforts and the dining table can easily seat six persons. In the back of this floor there is a separate bedroom with vanity sink and toilet. The beams in combination with antique floor tiles and the stone walls give this space a very warm and comfortable atmosphere. With ample heating present, the smells from the kitchen and friends swapping stories at the table, this is typically what the Dutch will call “gezellig”. The word “gezellig” is considered to be an example of untranslatability, and is one of the hardest words to translate. Some consider the word to encompass the heart of Dutch culture.

On this floor there is a staircase leading to the beletage, this floor has high ceilings and large windows overlooking the Herengracht canal. Opening the windows one can sit on the window stills or window bench and overlook this beautiful canal with all its historic houses running along its sides. There is a seating area in the front (canal side) of this floor with an ornamental antique heater. The large sofa can be converted into a double bed. In the back of the floor there is a full bathroom with sink, toilet and shower cabin. This floor also has a door that leads to the upstairs Grand Sonnenberg apartment, it is only unlocked when both apartments are rented by the same guests.

Location description

The Sonnenberg is located in the canal belt in the part known in Amsterdam as the “nine streets” area. The nine streets area is well known for its plentiful boutique shops, many restaurants, and its beautiful canals. This area is comprised of nine narrow streets running perpendicular with the four major canals (Singel, Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht) of the canal belt. It is distinctly different from other shopping districts as there is a large diversity of privately owned shops and specialized shops.

Great location!

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of four fit perfectly in this very central and up to date apartment. We stayed for four nights. We have enjoyed the shops and restaurants literally on our same block, referred to as the Nine Streets. We have walked everywhere in Amsterdam and loved every minute. You would think being so central that it would be loud, but this street is filled with locals, and it has been very quiet. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything we have needed to cook breakfast and lunch, and around the corner is a small grocery store with anything we might need to do this. The water tastes great, the showers are hot, and overall it's a comfortable place to hang out and sleep while in Amsterdam. We all highly recommend this wonderful apartment.

This apartment is located on the most beautiful part of the Herengracht Canal within the Nine-Streets area. Within 400 meters of the apartment you can find many shops and restaurants. The shops are all of a boutique type, so no usual suspects in this area. The restaurants vary from good value student restaurants to top of the bill, and from Tibetan cuisine to soul food, from breakfast to deli take outs.

For children and adults of all ages there is a playground in the direct area, with climbing racks, swings. Must see Museums within about 15-20 minutes walking/tram include; Anne Frank house, Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum, Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam Historical Museum and Canal House Museum. But there are at least 30 or 40 other museums nearby that are also worth visiting.

Without writing down an entire guide to the city of Amsterdam, this location will give you an excellent base to discover the many aspects of this world famous cosmopolitan city.
