My husband and I, along with two other friends, stayed at the Amsterdam Canal apartments. We stayed at the upper apartment and our friends stayed at the lower level. It was an ideal situation for two couples to vacation together but have our own "space". The four of us loved the location of the apartments. It was within easy walking distance of a nice, large grocery store; we would walk over and buy rotisserie chicken, wine, olives, cheese, etc. and share the evening meal together. The host, Bas, greeted us when we arrived, and he shared some nice food/treats with us. The apartments were well-located; we walked to everything that we wanted to see. The Rembrandt house and an open market were very close by. Our apartment was very spacious. It had a nice TV/living area and a well-equipped kitchen. It was a little tricky to understand some of the appliances that were written in Dutch, but it was very nice to have a washer/dryer, microwave, and dishwasher available to use during our stay. We stayed here for a few nights before our Holland America cruise ship left the Amsterdam port; when we come back to the Netherlands, I hope to stay here again.
