The Canal Apartment is very centrally located and convenient to transport, the museums, good restaurants and just about anything else you could want in Amsterdam. Almost everything is in walking distance which made for a very pleasant holiday. I would definitely recommend the Neighborhood City Guide (found on the apartment website) which Bas has put together. This gives you a good overview of what is in the area.
The apartment itself has a lovely view across the canal. It is a perfect place to watch the world go by. The apartment is very well outfitted and it is very hard to think of anything the kitchen lacks of in terms of cooking utensils etc.. In addition to the good restaurants near by there are also ample places to buy very nice produce, fish etc. if you want to cook. We really enjoyed our stay and I would not only recommend this apartment, but I would also stay there on any return trip to Amsterdam.
