I stayed here for 2 nights in October 2013 and absolutely fell in love with it. The apartment overlooked Singel canal, was very clean and quiet and nicely furnished with a Nespresso 'bar' to complete it. Marten and Jojo were attentive when I needed their advice/help, and left me to it when I didn't - perfect hosts! I would definitely... More

We have stayed at The Amsterdam Jewel Apartments quite a few times. It's one of our "home away from home" getaways. Always a pleasure to return to the most gracious hosts anyone could ask for - Jojo and Marten. Amsterdam Jewel Apartments are beautifully designed studios (we've stayed in a few) in a great location. We love returning and have... More

My wife and I stayed here in the Amber apartment for a long weekend in October. It was a wonderful stay. The apartment was, as others have said, well located, close to Dam Square and most of the attractions and shops (a few supermarkets within a few hundred meters). Just across the Single Canal and you are in the “Nine... More

Felt like we had the right experience staying in this type of place for an Amsterdam trip. This was the first stop of 3 countries on our honeymoon - and we only booked everything two months ahead and were facing very high hotel costs, which lead us to look at this 'apartment' style for our reservation. The location is perfect-... More

I decided to book an apartment over a hotel due to the location which is approximately 200m from the Dam Square, so there was no need for additional tram fares to get into the centre, which people should factor in when pricing places to stay. The price was competitive and the quality of the room was high. We stayed in... More

My husband and I stayed in, "The Emerald" for a week in May. The location is excellent, the host very friendly and helpful and the apartment clean and modern. The train station is a short walk and access to canal boats and trams is nearby. The grocery store a couple blocks away is large and offers a good selection. We... More

Excellent place to stay-much better than a hotel! We stayed in the Apartment which was lovely and over looked the canal.. Perfect for people spotting! The apartment was well equipt with kitchen items (not that we cooked) but perfect for a drink and breakfast. One point to note, the stairs are very very steep up to the apartment..If you have...

My girlfriend and I stayed in the Emerald apartment which is on the 5th floor of the building. The apartment was spacious, clean and being on Singel it was close to everything! 5 minutes from Dam square, 2 minutes to the heart of the Jordaan area and only a 10-15 minute cycle from the Vondelpark. We loved the apartment overall,... More

Stayed in Pearl, one of four Jewel Apartments on the Singel Canal in Amsterdam. Typical narrow Dutch staircase, but on our fourth visit to our favorite city, we just think of it as part of the overall charm. Our two hosts, who also own and run the Jewel Cruises, were so helpful and such nice people that they were also... More
