In the heart of the center on the top floor from an old canal house, a listed monument, builds in 1687 you will find our apartment. It is located at the Herengracht, (Gentleman canal) declared by UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is an A+ location, NOT even 100 meters away from the famous Rembrandt Square. The Waldorf Astoria hotel has chosen this location for their new hotel. In the front of the apartment is the living room with a scenic-view of the Herengracht ( Gentleman canal) and the Thorbecke square. The bedroom is in the back of the apartment. In the living room is a dinner table where you can have your breakfast while enjoying the beautiful view on the Herengracht with its traditional canal houses on the other side of the canal, and the busy Thorbecke square. In the living room is a TV set, a DVD player and a Harman Kardon Radio, C... Read more

They pointed out the best places to go , arranged for tickets ( with 50% discount !) to go to museums . Breakfast in the morning was... more

6 adult members of my family spent a weekend recently in Amsterdam. Our hosts Chan & Gijsje could not have been nicer or more helpful. Prior to booking Gijsje provided a lot of helpful information and advice for our trip. The apartment was very comfortable with lovely views of the Herengracht canal and was quite central. The breakfasts were delicious... more
