The Prinsenhuis is a remodelled canale house on (predictably) the Prisengracht. It is 1/2 block east of Vijzelgracht (a tram line runs alng that street for easy transportation). Three or four blocks to the North is Banks Mansion. The Rijksmuseum is a 5 or 10 minute walk and Leidseplein is slightly furher.
I stayed in the ground floor Mandarin. It is completely equiped. The TV in the sitting room/kitchen area is hooked up the Sky while the TV in the bedroom has Dutch cable offerings. High speed internet si provided via both RJ45 ethernet and WiFi (bringn your own laptop). The bathroom has a shower/tub combination, washing machine in addition to the obvious. The kitchen has a combination Microwave/standard oven, stove top, fridge, toaster, coffee maker, dish washer, etc. A tiny patio area is provided for smokers (no smoking inside the building).
The king sized bed jsut about fills the bedroom.
The apartment was spotless and furnished with the necessities of life. A grocery store is jsut around the corner for anything you might like to the mix. There seem to be plenty of decent eating establishments in teh immediate vacinity.
The friendly and helpful owner is a phone call away if you need anything.
All in all, a good value. I will definately stay here on my next visit to Amsterdam.
