“The perfect place to be in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2014

From the moment we arrived when Bram was waiting to greet us we knew we picked the right place. A stunning building in the heart of Amsterdam exactly where you always dream of finding accommodation. We stayed in the Luxury Suite with Garden View (plus garden house - how perfect!)

We have been coming to the city for the past 10 years and stayed in some lovely hotels however The Keizersgracht has most definitely been the best!! it's in one of the best roads in Amsterdam so you really get to feel the Amsterdam way of living. Place was perfect for a mixed group of 5 adults. Outside space was a bonus, great restaurants extremely close by, especially the convenient pizza oven on the corner, the best pizzas ever!

We all had a truly fantastic stay so thank you Bram for taking care of us. We will most definitely be booking again to come back next year. Amsterdam is one crazy place!

Just check that your Wi-Fi works before your front of house leave as we didn't have any Wi-Fi for the duration of our trip.

The Place is wonderful.
I slept there for 3 nights (Family of 5, one is a baby).
The apartment is very beautiful, well equipped, big and very clean, I had everything that I needed and more.
The Place is located in the best location in Amsterdam, in the assume Jorddan neighborhood, very close to the center (5 min walk from Dan Sq.).
The generosity of the manager of the place all over the period from the minute I ordered (and had a lot of questions) and till we left was one of a kind.

My wife and I spent the better part of a week (6 nights) here in their grand canal view room on the second floor. The view of the canal was excellent and afforded us a source of fresh air during what was a very warm week in Amsterdam. The bedroom is in the back of the unit and away from the street which made for a quiet sleep environment. Amsterdam can be noisy on weekends and a street room can have this disadvantage. While we did not cook the suite has all the facilities necessary for food preparation. We enjoy eating out on vacation and we were close to many of the best places in Amsterdam and took advantage of this. The suite also has a good-sized TV however it is basic cable and therefor does not have very many chanels. If you are out of the US you can bring your Apple TV and watch Netflix and such by going on line with the WiFi. We did. There is a number of available programs some you can't get in the US. You need a HDMI cable and plug it in right into the large screen tv that is in the suite.
Bram is a very pleasant guy and always willing to help.
Recommend it to all but those on a budget.

Room Tip: All good rooms. Go on price and numbers of persons in your group.

We just stayed here with 2 older kids. We had the garden residence. The living room and kitchen area was huge by European standards. We really felt like we were staying in Amsterdam like the locals do. The kids slept in the little cottage out back. There's a small really quants garden as part of the residence. Definitely book it if its available.

very quiet and spacious first floor apartment with with great view on the gracht. pleasant walk to the sights. Good early checking in and storing of luggage at our leaving day, with reliable Bram arriving fast after a phone call. Good bed, but I don't sleep well sharing a big duvet with my partner and asked for an own duvet which was a bit warm then. I would prefere two light summer duvets and a supplementary spare blanket... that's why 3 points for sleep quality

We were in Amsterdam for a wedding and needed a place to sleep 3 adults and a child. We gave grandpa the cottage and the 3 of us slept in the main apartment. It was nicely furnished and had a very sleek kitchen. We were easily able to entertain additional family members when they stopped by because there is seating for 12 people between all the chairs and the couch. It was great to have a washing machine and dryer since the weather was warm and we hadn't brought many short sleeved things, so we needed to wash them and re-wear them. There is no AC which may be a problem in very warm weather since the back of the main apartment is like a green house. It was almost like being in a quiet villiage in the center of Amsterdam - so peaceful and charming.
