We stayed in the apartment Noordermarkt I. I would agree with the previous positive review of this apartment, it is very spacious and has a certain quirkiness. As mentioned one bedroom is accessed through the bathroom, and the other beds are in the living room. The apartment is perfectly located by an organic farmer's market on Saturday (delicious baked goods... More

We stayed on the Bloemgracht Houseboat for 2 weeks over Queensday. It is clean & light on the inside despite the rather gloomy exterior. It has a full kitchen with coffee maker, lots of dishes & pans, dishwasher, stove & big fridge (no microwave) & washer/dryer. The furnishings are basic, but clean & the TV got 25 channels. The bed...

My girlfriend and I stayed at this houseboat which we got through Fredric rent-a-bike. Who also rents out 3 very cozy and charming rooms in his own house. Because his place was fully booked we opted to stay at this amazing houseboat on the Brouwersgracht canal about a 15 minute walk from central station (with suitcase). We paid 130 euro/night... More

This was a lovely place! Apartment: It is perfect for a group of four to five people. There is one double bed in the back room and then two single beds in the main room. (When you walk in, the kitchen is slightly in front of you, and then main room/room with the single beds/sitting room are to the right.)... More

It is not a bed and breakfast, rather an unsual guesthouse. Let's speak about the room we had, a huge room with a big jacuzzi and waterbed. I admit that it was very comfortable. I just regret the uncertain cleanliness of the sheets, as well as the dirty withe cat. They proposed us croissants - just croissants - for breakfast.... More

Staying in Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
