The Space

Studio with stellar view over river Amstel and Old City center.

Do you want to stay in a 17th century canal house overlooking the old city center? This studio is five minutes walking from the central station. It is situated in a quiet historical neighbourhood, close to the river Amstel. Small shops and cosy restaurants are around the corner.

Various musea within walking distance: Rembrandt House, Hermitage, Anne Frank House, Eye Filmmuseum, Van Gogh Museum. Interesting are the mediaeval 'castle' the Waag, flea market Waterlooplein, the New Public Library, the Opera House, red light district, historical university buildings.

- Sunny studio on second floor: three huge windows give a splendid view at a wide canal.

- Fast internet and television channels.

- No smoking.

- Kitchen and bathroom are SHARED with my friend who lives on the same floor (working expat), but you can lock the studio.

In this house (same building) is another studio available without sharing. This listing is called "studio with splendid view Old City". In this studio on the fourth floor everything is completely private: kitchen and bathroom for your own!

Check in: between 1 - 10 pm - you can put your luggage in the corridor if you are early.
Check out: between 8 - 11 am - you can put your luggage in the corridor if you want to stay longer.

You are welcome to enjoy Amsterdam from a canal house!

  • Thanks Elly. It was wonderful time to be in your place.

  • Hemos estado 4 noches en el Apartamento de Elly, y tanto Elly como Louis son muy amables, nos explicaron todo lo necesario del apartamento y nos dieron mapas y nos aconsejaron lugares para visitar en Amsterdam.
    El apartamento es muy acogedor y la cama muy cómoda!!!
    El baño y la cocina es compartido con un amigo de Elly, que vive allí en una habitación. Pero es muy discreto y nunca está en casa.Hasta Nos ayudó a poner una lavadora!!!
    El apartamento es super céntrico, a 8 minutos andando de la Estación central de Trenes y 5 minutos del Barrio Rojo, y todo el centro.
    La experiencia ha sido muy buena y sin duda si volvemos a Amsterdam, volveremos a este apartamento!!! Recomedable 100%.

  • Elly's place was amazing! It had lovely canal views and had a very central location. Elly was very nice and helpful and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay (including a lovely bottle of wine!) and maps and recommendations of where to go. I would definitely recommend Elly's place for anyone going to Amsterdam!

  • The location is perfect. Right close to everything but on a beautiful quiet street that truly lets you relax. Elly was a helpful and lovely host upon our arrival - giving us many pointers and a nice bottle of wine. The only bad thing we would say about this place is just that the bathroom wasn't the cleanest and we would recommend bringing shower shoes. We would stay here again.

  • Elly is a awesome host.
    She's very interesting to make their guests feel well.
    The apartment is very nice, good bed, close to the spots.
    I truly recommend her apartment.
    Only thing that was a surprise to me was the `share bathroom`.
    I wanna say thank you to her and Lou.

  • Very good location; minutes walking from the central station! Elly is quick to response to any question we have, and the studio is clean and very proper. LOVELY VIEW of the canal morning/noon/night :) we love it and would love to go back and stay if we visit Amsterdam again.

  • Séjour très agréable chez Elly, l'appartement correspondait bien à nos attentes, la rue est très calme et l'appartement propre et très éclairé. pratique, il est à 2 minutes de la Gare Centrale et à 30minutes maximum à pieds de l'autre bout de la ville.
    Elly nous a bien reçu, et nous a donné plein de conseils pour visiter la ville. Elle est très attentionnée.

  • The apartment is lovely and you feel quite spoiled with the picturesque view looking out over the canal. It's just a hop from the Central Station. Elly is very sweet and helpful and lives just upstairs if you have questions. The only problem with my own stay personally was the Internet really wasn't working well. Hopefully she'll solve that for future tenants.
