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.
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.
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.
