This 17th century (1690) monument building is the perfect place to experience how people live in Amsterdam. Traditional building with many historic features and located in the heart of the city.

The Space

A holiday apartment like no other. (Sleeps 4 people - 1 x bouble bed & 1 x double sofa bed)

This beautiful holiday apartment on the second floor of a protected monument building in the heart of Amsterdam is the perfect location for a city break.

Just a 5 minute walk from Amsterdam central train station, 5 minutes to ‘Dam Square and within minutes of a hoard of historical buildings, canals, bridges and of course the infamous red light district and coffee shops.

The apartment is also situated on the edge of the "Nine Streets" shopping area which straddle the Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht in Amsterdam's central canal ring. The streets are full of original and diverse stores. Look for "De 9 Straatjes" on the street signs and pick up a district shopping map from any of the charming retailers.

It’s possible to visit all the sights of Amsterdam by foot from our apartment but if you’re more adventurous and want to get further out of town you can simply hop on a tram. You’ll find all the tram stops at central station.

**** PLEASE NOTE ****

*The stairs are narrow and steep (as is the way in Amsterdam). Some guests might need help carrying large suitcases up to the apartment which is on the 2nd floor.

* Check in after 8pm will be charged a late check in fee of 25 Euro.

* Maximum occupancy is for 4 people. One double bed and one double sofabed.

* If you smoke, please open a window.

Guest Access

You have full access to the entire apartment. The stairway is shared with neighbours.

Interaction with Guests

We'll check you in and try to answer any questions. You can always call us if you need advice during your visit.

The Neighborhood

The area is very central, in fact you can't really get any more central than this.
There are many hiostoric buildings, plenty of bars and restaurants as well as the famous coffee shops and red light district.
There's somethign for everyone.

Getting around

Getting around is SO easy. there are trams, underground and overground railways all within 5 minutes of the front door.
Parking is expensive on the street, but it is possible. I'd advise parking out of town (where it's cheaper) and getting a tram in to the centre. It's really up to you :)

Other Things to Note

Be aware that the stairway up to the apartment is very steep and narrow. This is typical of Amsterdam houses. It might be difficult if you have mobility issues or you have babies with pushchairs and so on.

  • Al es un excelente anfitrión, estuvo en contacto con nosotros siempre, y nos estaba esperando en el departamento para explicarnos todo lo necesario. El departamento está perfectamente ubicado, en pleno centro de la ciudad. El acceso es complicado, por la escalera angosta y empinada, pero es lo típico de estos vecindarios. Es un detalle a tener en cuenta para personas mayores o con dificultades. Departamento muy luminoso y cómodo, súper recomendable

  • Nous avons passé un excellent week end a Amsterdam. L appartement est très bien situé (proche de la gare, des restaurants, du centre ville etc).
    Merci à Al pour son accueil et sa gentillesse ;)

  • The apartment is small and suitable for 2 ppl. The fold out couch is very uncomfortable and bruised my lumber spine. Unfortunately i arrived 40 min late and was missing few euros of the 25 eu check in fee, but compensated this with shampoo and water. If one suffers from walking disability I wouldn't advise this flat, the stair case is tiny and very steep. The pressure of water in shower is sparse like the kitchen utensils but besides this I enjoyed the flat and amsterdam

  • Great apartment, really well located and Al was lovely! Arrived as we realised we were at the right place, so great timing. Best located place we've stayed in the Dam, and we have been 3 times. Would not hesitate to stay here again when we come back to Amsterdam.

  • Al's place was perfect for our two-day stop in Amsterdam. It is a short walk from the train station, and Al was there to meet us right on time. The place was clean and equipped with everything we needed. As others have mentioned, the stairs are steep, but it was no trouble getting our big bags into and out of the apartment. Highly recommended.
