Stayed in Pearl, one of four Jewel Apartments on the Singel Canal in Amsterdam. Typical narrow Dutch staircase, but on our fourth visit to our favorite city, we just think of it as part of the overall charm. Our two hosts, who also own and run the Jewel Cruises, were so helpful and such nice people that they were also part of the overall charm. The Pearl apartment overlooks their antique cruise boat so it was fun to watch the sailing preparation and closing up procedures from the comfort of our apartment. The Pearl is just big enough for two, everything modern and set up to wisely use every inch of space so that while not large, it never felt cramped. Loved the pocket door on the shower room, so smart, so efficient. It's also a very convenient location, close to Dam Square but not so close that it was ever noisy, and it's located next to a cross street so it was fun to watch the bike and foot traffic from all directions. Would definitely recommend staying there if you're looking for a smart, reasonable, convenient apartment for two.
