“Prettiest street on Earth”
5 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.

“Canal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

Herengracht is the first of the three major canals in the city centre of Amsterdam. The canal is named after the heren regeerders who governed the city in the 16th and 17th century.

“A nice place for a leisurely stroll.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

A nice quiet part of Amsterdam which is a pleasure to just chill out away from the crowds in the town center.
A few small shops that have been there for years and when you look in their windows you wonder why they have managed to stay viable.
Well worth a visit though.

“The most beautiful "Grachtenhuizen" (Canalhouses)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

This canal is lined with beautiful houses.
However the best way to look at them is from the water, so take a canaltour. They are the prettiest in the evening, when the houses are lighted and you can see also the beautiful interior through the large open windows! A sight to behold!!!
