This self-contained monument house is located in the heart of the Jordaan, Central Amsterdam's 'village,' known for its wonderful cafes, shops, restaurants and galleries. The entire house is offered and is approximately 70 square meters (750 square feet),, with private entrance, ground floor and three floors above.
You will appreciate the comfort of this home during your stay in Amsterdam. It is ideal for a couple or small family. The house is totally furnished, with two bedrooms (one bedroom can be configured to provide either two twin beds or one queen-size bed), a fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher, dining room, living room, terrace, full bath with tub and two WC's. Other amenities include CableTV/DVD, Internet ADSL/wifi, and washer and dryer. For your safety the Poppenhuis is a non-smoking environment.
This home is located steps from the most beautiful canals in Amsterdam. The Noorderkerk, Westerkerk, wonderful outdoor markets, food shops, all museums, the famous 'Nine Streets' shopping district, and the Anne Frank house are all right outside your door. Amsterdam's Centraal Station is a short fifteen minute walk or just minutes away by tram or bus.
Our property is registered with the City of Amsterdam as a short term stay property.
The house is very nice, clean and located in a nice area. Rick, the manager was very attentive to our needs. It was somewhat loud on the weekend, but it is in the center of the city, so it's expected. The biggest drawback is the stairs. They are pretty standard for Amsterdam - steep and narrow - but still difficult to negotiate. All in all it was a great experience.
We were delighted with a warm greeting from the owner and his attention to our needs. The apartment was spotless and charming, however the narrow stairs did not allow us to bring our luggage to the same floors as the bedrooms (3 and 4). Bedrooms, bathrooms, and living quarters were all comfortable and well appointed with coffee and tea, yet a little tight. Right across the canal from attractions such as Anne Frank and the Westekerk, and 10 minute walk to center of town.
This home in the heart of Jordaan was perfect and everything we expected. The location could not have been better. Our cab driver from central station had some trouble finding it, but he was not a local driver. Once we found it we realized we were in the perfect location to see and do everything. We walked everywhere and at every hour and felt safe and comfortable everywhere we went. The home was charming and decorated exactly how my Dutch friend described life in Holland. The stairs are very steep and narrow and were a bit difficult to navigate with luggage, but Rick helped out. By the end of the week we were accustom to the steepness and my legs were in great shape! We visited several restaurants in the Jordaan and HIGHLY recommend Olivia's as well as Assaggi. The location near the Anne Frank Huis was very helpful to navigate our way home daily. The bells of the Westerkerk are lovely and they ring on the quarter hour. After the 3rd night we did get used to it, but if you are a light sleeper you may want to bring some earplugs. We have recommended this to our friends and hope to return sometime soon. Tony was great at answering our pre-trip questions and Rick was available for our arrival and assisted us in every way possible during our stay. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Great location ! I highly recommend the Jordaan area for peace and quiet at the end of the day. House is on a small street. We had the windows open at night because we hit a hot spell,
But things quieted down early. Everyone that raved about the restaurant across the street was right on. They had no outdoor seating for us so they brought a table over and put it at the front bench of the house and crossed the street with all of our dishes! We sat there for three hours and enjoyed a delicious 4 course meal! It is called Mantoe. As for the house, just about perfect. I have stayed in many VRBO's and this one had everything! Washer and dryer unheard of in my travels, also great fridge and dishwasher and comfortable beds! We did breakfast and cocktails every day on the second floor terrace which took some manuvering since it is up a very sleep steps but we managed! My Daughter and I walked every night and it was very safe even at 11 pm and later. Because it was so nice and warm we took two canal tours. One was paddle boats and the other was Friendship guided tour. I recommend both. There is a night shop close by and a great grocery 5 minutes away. The only drawback is the steps to the second floor. Very steep and need to be slowly taken. If you have any trouble with curvy steep stairs this is not the place for you! I would live in this house, it is historical yet totally updated. Thank you Tony for sharing this treasure.
In the Jordan near the Ann Frank House and West Kirk, the neighborhood feels residential, but it's a short tram ride from everything and an easy walk to Dam Square. There are groceries and restaurants galore near by.
The apartment is furnished the way I imagine a Dutch relative might furnish a traditional row house. And it is very traditional. The ground floor has the kitchen, dining room, and washer/dryer. An extraordinarily steep staircases takes you to the living room and the balcony. There is a bedroom on each of the next two floors up. Not for those out of shape or afraid of heights, but very Dutch and very charming.
Rick is a pleasure to deal with.
We would stay here again.
Very nice 4-level home in the beautiful Jordaan area. Cozy pubs and multiple good restaurants nearby as well as a great coffee house. The Afghan restaurant across the street (Manto) was our favorite dining experience while in Amsterdam - unique and absolutely delicious. The owner of property was very pleasant to work with. The steep stairs were a little tricky, but we took our time going up and down. I highly recommend this rental home.
