“Classic Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2014 NEW

Along with Prinsengracht and Keizersgracht, these principal canals show Amsterdam at its finest. Beautiful, charming and with much architectural interest.

“The true Amstersam perhaps?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2014 NEW

This is such a lovely area - fantastic architecture that is so typical of this beautiful city. You want to sit a little and walk a little and have a drink or lunch in one of the many eateries. Take your time and take it all in. Then go shopping...

“Romantic...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2014 via mobile

Perfect place to stroll and have coffee along the canals. Different time of day you will see different colors of the canal. Do take the canal cruise for an overall cruise tour. Need not say, this is a must. Same goes for all the canals!

“Beautiful, like the others”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2014 via mobile

All grachts are beautiful, border the centrum, this one is used also for canal cruises and for me was special, because our hotel was situated here.
