Overview

About the property

Stylish, Light & Spacious Apartment In Amsterdam's Hippest Neighbourhood

Stylish, light & spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment (sleeping 6-8 people) in Amsterdam's hippest neighbourhood. Central and convenient. Large living room and full equipped kitchen. A national monument built 1790 and completely renovated in 2007. The home in 1820s of Multatuli, Holland's most famous author.

The house has retained its historical details, yet offers every modern comfort and convenience. It features beamed ceilings throughout, steep wooden stairs and the traditional Dutch steeply slanted roof in the attic bedroom.

LAYOUT DESCRIPTION:

The spacious living room is on the first level with a large open kitchen and dining area. On the second level there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom is located at the back of the house, with an ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom has an original wooden floor with three large windows overlooking the street. The shower room is next door. The third bedroom, in the attic, has the possibility to sleep up to 4 people with two twin beds and two optional sofa-beds.

STAIRS:

The apartment comprises the top half of the house and is completely independent, accessed through its own front door and up two flights of stairs. It has two internal flights of stairs. In historic buildings in Amsterdam many of the staircases are steeper than most people are used to. When the houses in this area were built there was a tax on the width of the building resulting in tall houses with steep, narrow staircases. The flights are between moderately steep and steep (in Amsterdam terms) and are not suitable for people with limited mobility. If possible bring small suitcases, you will be very glad you did! Stair gates can be installed if you are travelling with small children.

NEIGHBOURHOOD:

You will find yourself in a quiet side street of the Canal district by the Jordaan, with everything you need just around the corner. From little cafes and restaurants, a great bakery and an Italian coffee bar, to all kinds of traiteurs, shops and supermarkets. There are two weekly organic markets within 5 minutes walk (Wednesdays and Saturdays).

There’s a bike rental at the end of our street. It’s just a short train ride from the airport and the station is only 7 minutes walk from the apartment so it’s very quick to get here. Amsterdam is a small city and it’s very easy to get around on foot or by bike or of course by boat!

LOCATION DESCRIPTION:

Binnen Brouwersstraat is located in a beautiful area of the northern Jordaan, a small side street at the top of the Keizersgracht canal, between the Brouwersgracht canal (voted the most beautiful street in Amsterdam) and the Haarlemmerstraat (voted the Best Shopping Street in the Netherlands) which features a huge range of restaurants and cafes, speciality shops and an art-house cinema. The famous weekly organic food and flea markets at the Noordermarkt are just around the corner. The quirky boutiques of the 9 Streets and the Jordaan are within easy walking distance, as are the green spaces of the Westerpark.

NEARBY POINTS OF INTEREST:

Please note that cycling time or public transport is about 1/3 of walking time:

GETTING AROUND:

Amsterdam is a small city and from our central location most of the main sights can be reached easily on foot. Amsterdam Centraal Station is just 7 minutes walk away. There are numerous trams within a few minutes walk. But the best way to get around the city is to rent a bike! There is a bike rental shop in our street and it costs €10 a day, less per day the longer you rent. We can also advise on boat rental and tours.

Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is the closest airport, only 15 minutes away on the train. The apartment is a 7 minute walk from Amsterdam Centraal Station. There are frequent trains (every 5-15 minutes) from the airport to Central Station and a ticket costs about €4.50 per person. You can also take a taxi from the airport which will cost around €45 euros for up to 4 passengers or €75 for 6-8 passengers.

HISTORICAL INFORMATION:

Full of history, the house was built around 1790 and is a national monument. In the 1820s it was home to the young Multatuli, Holland's most famous author. You can visit the museum dedicated to him a few streets away in the house of his birth and the large statue of him on the Torensluis bridge on the Singel canal.

EXTRAS:

Rates include linen, weekly cleaning and linen change for stays of 10 nights or more, utilities and wifi internet. There is 5% city tax in Amsterdam.

About Joanna and MP

Joanna is from London and is the importer of Micro scooters to the Netherlands (we have a shop in the same street as our house). MP is from Amsterdam and is a professional pianist.

Joanna and MP purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Joanna and MP chose Grachtengordel

In 2006 we bought our house from an old lady who had lived there for 38 years. We completely renovated it and now live with our two young daughters in the bottom half of the house, renting out the separate apartment in the top half.

What makes this apartment unique

We love Amsterdam! We can tip you off about local hangouts that you have to live here to know about and all the highlights that you really ought to see. This is the best area of the city to live in, that's why we picked it! Everything we need is right on our doorstep, we hardly ever have to leave our 'hood. You'll love it here too!

Spectacular!! Cosy, historical home.

  • 5 of 5

We have a wonderful time at Multatuli house. Living in a 230 years Dutch house made you understand the simplicity of this lovely Country.

Have Joanna as host was wonderful, she help us in every way, she made us feel welcome.

The house is gorgeous, super location, has everything you will need. It was clean, well maintained, quiet and spacious.

We spent some days and at the end we wouldn’t want to leave it.

Really recommend!!!

A wonderful place to stay in Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect home base for our family's Amsterdam holiday. The apartment is very comfortable, spacious and clean and is located in a convenient location, near good shopping and restaurants, and is a short walk to the train station. Joanna is a wonderful and accommodating host and we greatly appreciated all of her suggestions and recommendations.

Spacious, airy, lots of light, well equipped and perfectly situated in the centre of Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. Spacious kitchen and living room area; modern yet comfortable and very well equipped. Three equally spacious bedrooms, with black out blinds which I like. Two nice bathrooms, one with a shower/bath. Short walking distance from the Central train station, and walking distance to all major attractions including the museums and Vondel Park. It is also located right next to an excellent shopping street for any groceries or items you may need while staying there. Joanna, the owner, was very welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable. The stairs are narrow as described in other reviews, but we quickly got used to them. However may not be ideal for the elderly or very young. That might be the only drawback to this rental.

The House was awesome, nothing like being right in the heart of Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

From the reservation to showing up Joanna and Marc were great. The House was perfect and after getting acquainted with the steep stairs in Amsterdam (all old areas have them) it was great for our family. Highly recommend this property to anyone coming to Amsterdam.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We felt so comfortable here it was like our home for a week. Joanna has really thought of every detail. We were given easy to follow walking instructions from the train station. When we arrived Joanna let us in and showed us how everything worked and gave us tips. There are plenty of maps and guide books so I didn't need the one I brought. There are books and movies for relaxing at night. The kitchen has everything you could need including a few food staples. There was even an ice pack which was much appreciated after walking all day. The location worked well for us. It is about a 30 minute walk to the Museum Quarter and Vondelpark and 10 minutes to the Anne Frank House. I will say that the steps are steep as described so if that is a problem then you shouldn't stay here. However, I have a bad knee and did just fine even after walking all day. It is a great place to stay!
