The Space

This is your chance to stay in one of the oldest authentic historic buildings, in the heart of Inner City Centre Amsterdam, situated on, and with views overlooking the beautiful and famous Singel canal.

This beautiful 90m2/970ft Apartment (on the 3rd floor) and Loft (on the 4th & 5th floor), are situated in a 17th century building which is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage list. The property has a beautiful stepped gable, old doors and large original wooden beams. Through these authentic details, you will feel like you are staying in the heart of old historic Amsterdam.

The apartments are very centrally located within walking distance of and across from Amsterdam Central Station (350 meters), on the corner of the Haarlemmerstraat, (voted best shopping street of the Netherlands 2012), with its charming shops and cafes. It is located within walking distance of the city centre attractions such as the Dam Square, Beurs van Berlage, Madame Tussaud and Jordaan area.

These 'boutique hotel-feel’, quiet apartments from Kobalt Inn, situated on the 3rd and 4th floor, have recently been fully renovated and have been been tastefully decorated. The walls are well insulated (so there’s no noise whatsoever from the Café on the 1st floor) and the floors are equipped with oak parquet flooring.

Other Things to Note

* Please note that in historic buildings in Amsterdam, like at Kobalt-Inn, the staircases are much narrower and steeper than most people are used to. The apartments are situated on the 3rd & 4th floor and do not have an elevator, though if required "bell-boy service" is available for your suitcases upon request.

* For people travelling with babies/small children please note that a baby high chair (Stokke TrippTrapp) is present as well as baby bed, baby duvet, baby changing mattress and baby bath (TummyTub). We would also be happy to recommend an experienced (English speaking) babysitter if required.

  • Amazing amazing amazing. The apartment is centrally located with most activities a walking distance. Surrounded by many bars and eateries looking for somewhere to pick a bite was not an issue.

    The apartment itself was nice and spacious. We were a group of 9 and we could comfortably have had 5 more guests. All the amenities were provided.

    Amazing host who greeted is upon arrival. Couldn't have asked for anything better.

  • I would like to say a big THANKS to Esther and Jan. We had a wonderful time, the apartment was clean and tidy when we arrived and all the guests were very impressed. We had 13 people on our party and we had more than enough room to enjoy ourselves. I could not recommend this place highly enough thanks again.

  • Apartment was fantastic - great location, very central and short walk to the station. Great neighbourhood, not too touristy (which was great) - lots of lovely cafes, bars, shops etc.

    Apartment was clean, amazing views, and perfect for a great weekend with friends. Large spacious rooms, good utilities, decent number of bathrooms too! Would definitely reccommend!

    The apartments are very beatiful, clean and well equipped .The position is perfect too; the apartments are in a really convenient and strategic location very close to the station and to the center of the city
    The apartment will be definitely the first choice for the next trip to Amsterdam.

    May 2014
  • Esther and Jan's apartment was amazing! We used all three floors of the apartment, including the loft and really enjoyed our stay. There was 9 of us so we had tonnes of room as the apartments sleep 14 in total. The apartments were lovely and clean, the facilities were great, it was in a brilliant location and the staff in the cafe below were very helpful. Esther replied to any questions I had in the run up to our stay and I never had to wait longer than a few hours for a response. We would definitely recommend staying here and we would definitely consider going back to stay again!

  • The two apartments on the top floor of the house are great. Great view over the canal, nice deco, very functional.
    Kobalt café downstairs is an ideal meeting point (and breakfast place) for a group of +/- 8 people.

    April 2014
  • A fantastic stay at Esther and Jan's property in Amsterdam. We sadly didn't get to meet Esther or Jan, but the staff in Cafe Kobalt were wonderful and were available throughout our stay to help with whatever we needed. The apartment was great and full of charm.

    A perfect apartment, perfect location, perfect stay!
