“Lovely Canal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Our hotel, The Ambassade Hotel, was located on this canal and it is fabulous! With so many bicycles flying by and so many interesting things to look at, this canal is sure to please any visitor. The shops, cafes, boaters, bikers, flowers all make this canal one of the most beautiful.

“Prettiest street on Earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

My boyfriend and I rented an apartment here during July 2014. Just looking out the windows made you smile. It really was one of the prettiest streets I have ever seen! Plenty of bar and restaurants to cater fr all budgets, and lots of cute little boutique shops. Perfect!

“Fantastic area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

We stayed at a hotel in this area, and we loved it. The old buildings that tower over the canals are amazing and so well kept. You feel the rich history of the area. When going to Amsterdam, a walk here is a must. Many small cafes, restaurants and shops to visit and prices are for the most part very reasonable.
