About this listing
Stay in the very centre of Amsterdam on arguably the most beautiful canal of the city. The apartment with canal view (80 sq. m) is located in the old city between Rembrandt Square and Waterloo Square (the flea market). The quiet Groenburgwal hardly has any traffic (mostly cyclists and pedestrians). The Opera House, Hermitage Museum, Rembrandt House, Amsterdam Zoo (Artis), cafes, restaurants and major shopping street are around the corner. There are no noisy cafes or restaurants on the Groenburgwal itself; that's all within a few minutes walking distance (but not on your doorstep). You are near Nieuwmarkt underground station (1st from Central Station) and Waterlooplein underground station (2nd from Central Station) and tram stops.
The 2-room apartment (on the 2nd floor in a 17th century listed building) has all amenities: central heating, fully equipped kitchen, digital TV, (free and secure) WIFI, stereo radio and CD player, washer/dryer, soap & shampoo, iron & ironing board. Bedroom (with double bed, chair and table), living room with dining table (+ 4 chairs) and 2 armchairs and sofa (folds out as a comfortable extra double bed) and modern bathroom (with floor heating) with toilet, shower and sink.
NB No smoking. Price includes 5% tourist tax.
Look at the reviews and decide!
Please mind the neighbours; the apartment is in a quiet, though very central area.
Lovely setting overlooking a very quiet residential street and beautiful canal, yet within walking distance of the many sites, restaurants, bars etc.
The apartment itself is great for four - the sofa bed was spacious and comfortable for two and the apartment very well equipped.
I know others have commented on the stairs and yes they are a little steep but they added to the magic of Amsterdam; it is after all a 16th century canal side house :)
Bel et fonctionnel appartement.
Très bien situé en plein centre le long d'un canal calme.
Effectivement l'escalier pour y accéder est très raide.
The listing description was accurate. The only negative was the steepness of the stairs, given we had two heavy suitcases. Enjoyed the area, everything was very close. It was also very quiet at night enabling a good sleep.
appartement très agréable, très clair, spacieux, très bien situé (avons tout fait à pied - 20 mn de la gare) et très calme,
Le seul bémol est le matelas du canapé qui doit être changé
Avons apprécié de pouvoir laisser nos bagages dans l'appartement le jour de notre départ car avions un vol dans la soirée,
Avons beaucoup aimé Amsterdam et les habitants sont charmants.
Nous y reviendrons au printemps pour les fleurs
The owner and liaison were very thorough in their contact regarding directions and meet-up time. The flat was lovely and spacious, exactly as described in the listing. Regarding the previous reviews that mention the steep stairs, it is a very authentic Amsterdam stairwell. Yes, it is steep, but it has so much character. The laundry was a mystery to me (washer/dryer in same appliance!) but soon we figured it out.
Perhaps it was just the time of year, but I want to mention that there were a lot of mosquitos coming in from the central section of the apartment building. If you have that sweet blood that mosquitos like, be warned. After buying some incense and citronella, and closing the windows, we were okay. We were there during a heat wave.
clean and spacious apartment, friendly host and extremely central location - would definitely recommend!
We were extremely happy with our stay and would recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to visit Amsterdam. The apartment was beautiful and in the perfect location, directly in the centre of the city and only a short bike ride away from some of the cities beautiful parks and museums. Thanks again Rudolph, we really loved it and hope to come back sometime in the future.
