we stayed at this property for two nights and we could not have been more satisfied with the accommodations and specially the friendly and helpful attitude of Wessel, the owner

everything in this property is up to date, clean, elegant, comfortable, bedrooms, kitchen, bathrooms all in great condition

the house/apartment is ideally centrally located to all the central Amsterdam has to offer, everything within walking distance or a short cab ride

of course, as most typical of older properties in Amsterdam, the stairs are narrow and steep, but safe, still not recommended for young children, older seniors or people with mobility issues

otherwise, do not stay any place else....this property is the best

so bring only your toothbrush, some euros, and your English....EVERYONE speaks English

A very pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5

We were not disappointed when we arrived at the canal house. The website photographs and descriptions were honest, informative and comprehensive, and the owner, Wessel, had been very responsive to our questions in advance. Therefore there were no surprises when we arrived for our ten day stay. It was exactly what we had hoped for. The location is superb, right in the middle of the 9 streets canal area and Amsterdam is small enough that we could walk everywhere. While we had anticipated cooking at home some evenings we actually only breakfasted there because there were so many excellent restaurants and cafes nearby that we ate lunch and dinner out each day - so we can't comment on how well the kitchen worked, but everything was modern and functional. This was our second visit to Amsterdam and although other reviews have commented on the steep stairs, we were expecting them because they are so characteristic of historic Amsterdam houses, and it takes very little time to get used to them. We slept in the front bedroom overlooking the canal and on very warm August weekend nights it can be noisy outside with the windows open - we kept them closed on those occasions, opening others in the house and using the fan. This worked fine, plus, there's so much street and canal activity outside we wouldn't have missed it for the world. The house has a clean, organic feel, pleasantly and simply decorated, modern and efficient. As the owners also own a boutique next to the property they were very accessible if we had questions, though never intrusive. We would definitely recommend this property and will rent it again next time we visit Amsterdam.

Great house at a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The place is clean, comfy and has everything you need at the perfect location.

The owners are very accommodating and available if you need any advise.

Very quiet for being in the middle of the center.

Loved our second time staying here.

Fantastic location, clean and fully equipped accommodations, helpful and responsive host.

  • 5 of 5

Location: I am not an expert on Amsterdam, but based on my observations of the last four days, I dare say this apartment's location is truly unbeatable. Views of the Herengracht canal at one of its most vibrant points, walking distance to everything.

Accomodations: Completely remodeled and modern. The building itself dates back to 1620, but it has been upgraded to include a modern kitchen, two full bathrooms and three very good sized bedrooms. A very comfortable living room with comfortable sofas looks over the canal. As with most houses in such settings, the rooms are located on three floors. Going up and down the steps was easy enough for us, but it's something one should consider if one's mobility is limited.

Host: Wes met us at the apartment when we arrived and showed us the place and all we needed to know. He was also very accessible when we had questions or issues. The renter will not feel abandoned to an 800 number!
