Such a genuine experience staying in the heart of Jordaan and staying in this beautiful home. We grew to appreciate the unique style of home and those steep stairs. We would easily re-book again for our next stay
We spent a week at this house last week. It was simply amazing. The location cannot be beat. It has all the amenities you could ask for. It was so spacious, but particularly for it being in the middle of the city. it was great for three of us - my husband, 4 year old and me.
The location is ideal. It is half a block from the tram line. It overlooks the canal. It is the perfect starting point to getting anywhere in town. One day we just spent in the neighborhood - going to Anne Frank's house, a canal tour and wandering around the area.
The flat is fantastic. It takes up the 3rd and 4th floors (American), 2nd and 3rd European. The main floor has the main front bedroom with the couch, TV, windows overlooking the canal in the front of the house, then a small area that leads to the bathroom and then other bedroom is beyond the bathroom. The upper level has the kitchen, terrace and washer and dryer. We were traveling with a 4 year old, so we put him in the back bedroom so we could stay up and watch TV (although there was one in his room too), and have easy access to the kitchen without waking him up. The fact that the rooms were so close to each other made us feel better about leaving him in there.
The kitchen had everything you would need for a home base for the week. It was nice to be able to make breakfast in the morning before heading out for a day of sightseeing. The washer and dryer were great for a longer stay. The terrace is in the back of the house which gives it more privacy, but it still has a lovely view of the top church across the canal.
Since the apartment is on the upper floors of the house, that does mean going up and down stairs. This will be true of virtually every rental you look at in the center of Amsterdam, but should be noted. The stairs are very typical for Amsterdam - one flight that is very steep with narrow steps and the other 2 sets of stairs turn giving them a little more foot space and not quite to steep. We found the stair situation to be the same in other restaurants and museums we went to around town, so be ready to deal with them everywhere you go in Amsterdam. Our 4 year old was a little taken aback by them on his first trip up them, but by the end of the week was bounding up and down them no problem.
The apartment really is so spacious and well maintained and super clean. They have really managed renting the space out so well that everything was so welcoming for us, including restaurant suggestions along with the wifi password out and ready for you when you get there. They were so welcoming and easy to talk to as things came up (where is the recycling, etc). They made the stay that much more special.
Perfect location, amazing clean canal house! Beds super comfortable. Lovely view from the window over canal!
Would highly recommend!
The apartment is close to all amenities and only few minutes to Dam Square. Centraal Station is 15 mins walk or 3 stops by tram. Apartment is fully equipped with spacious rooms. Very clean and tidy. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Elisa is a very communicative and friendly host.
We spent four nights in this apartment. Our stay was very nice and the apartment split on two floors is spacious enough for four people.
Overall everything was very clean and the owners were also very kind and gave us some insider tips to make the stay as pleasent as possible.
By the great location of this house you can reach many sights directly by foot and not to forget is the great view of the prinsengracht.
We would come back at any time.
