Our apartment is situated at the first inner canal of Amsterdam, which is part of the old city. The neighbourhood and buildings on this canal are well kept en tidy. All is in walking or bycicling distance. A great location from where you can start exploring Amsterdam. Shops, restaurants, convenience stores are all in direct vicinity.

  • The apartment is in the PERFECT location for exploring Amsterdam, being just a short walk away from Central Station. We were greeted warmly by the host (the brother) who was informative. The pictures you see on this website are totally representative of how the apartment looks. A big room, with a lot of natural light, filled with interesting artwork and furntiure.

    On arrival the host informed us that the previous occupants had experienced problems with mosquitos from having the windows open. For this reason we decided to keep the windows closed, however there was unfortunately still an unhealthy amount of mosquitos in the apartment. In fact theyd seemed to increase as our stay at the apartment went on. This dampened our overall experience as we left Amsterdam with over 50 mosquito bites on our bodies each. (im still itching now). In future I would advise stocking some mosquito repellent.

  • We spent six nights at the Single Canal Apartment. A few minute walk to Central Station for access to airport, trams, and metro. You can also walk to many sites. On a nice quiet canal. The pictures are a true representation of the apartment. The room was clean, light, and quiet. The apartment was huge compared to a typical hotel room. We dealt with three different members of the host family, all were extremely nice and helpful. We will definitely stay at the Single Canal Apartment again the next time we come to Amsterdam.

  • The apartment is very central, nice and the pictures are honest and representative of what you'll actually get. We could go by walking almost everywhere. The host is very kind and will organize the beds according to your needs. I would definitely advice this place to anyone :)

  • I had a great time in Amsterdam staying in Singel Canal Apartment. The location is perfect. Next to the Central Station and in the middle of the heart of the center of the city. You can go walking to a lot of different places. Nevertheless, the street is calm and silent, so no problems to sleep at night.
    The apartment is clean and cozy, exactly as you can see of the photos! I strongly recommend this place to have a great experience in Amsterdam!
    Thank you, Yumi!

  • I feel I should keep it secret, but this is for sure one of the greatest places to stay in Amsterdam. The apartment is very cosy and beautifully decorated, and most of all it's perfectly located, right on the edge on both wealthy historical and touristic sides of the city. Yumi and her father are very kind, and made our stay a true charm.

  • The two most impressive features of this apartment, its atmosphere and location, are a welcome juxtaposition for anyone spending time in Amsterdam.

    Behind the heavy outer door that fronts the canal you will find a large, bright, and quiet room that floods with natural light. The full height windows overlooking the private gardens of the neighbourhood offer a view of life, both in the green gardens and open windows of the locals. We revelled in the Dutch custom to let your private life unfold in front of an open window pane. Sharing the building with offices the apartment is absolutely quiet on the weekends. A little investigation reveals this was once a large room and that the amenities and living spaces were built within the shell of this grand space. It is pretty cool sleeping just below the ornate ceiling and the kitchen and bathroom were clean, simple, and in good order. The wifi and multi-zone heating ensured we had all our creature comforts.

    Stepping back outside onto the Singel Canal you find yourself equidistant from most points of interest in the city centre. It was amazing to find the tourist hordes only a street or two away, yet fortunately the Singel isn't frequented by the herd and was quiet and safe throughout the night. We found great food and coffee in every direction and were thankful for the recommendations left by the host. Getting in/out/around couldn't of been easier with Central Station and the tram lines just a few minutes away. The host welcomed us warmly and after a brief orientation left us in privacy for the rest of our stay.

    The apartment is a comfortable, quiet space which enables you to relax and revive whilst enjoying a central position to thoroughly indulge in city life.

    Thanks for having us, we'll see you next time! Owen

  • location was perfect!
    close to central station and to all relevant spots of the city (for a short trip).
    apt is spacey and looks exactly like the pics are indicating. it was a little dark though as there is no ceiling light. however, during the daytime it was totally bright, as the apt features huge windows. : )
    the oven did not work right away- but to be fair: we did not try harder, as we were eating outside all the time.

We live in Amsterdam and love our city. We take care of the apartment in our canal house with the family so the host varies from time to time. We care for the building and ask from our guests to respect our house rules as we also have other tennants. We love Amsterdam ourselves so feel free to ask us about the city, its events or even its history. We hope you enjoy your stay!
