Private double room in a canal house dating from 1608 situated on Singel Canal in the oldest part of Amsterdam. Centrally located.

The space
This private room available for the exclusive use of Airbnb-guests is just like an apartment without a kitchen; the room is situated on the first floor at the front of the house. This Airbnb-space includes a large bedroom with exposed oak beams and an authentic brick wall.

Adjacent to the bedroom is your private bathroom (with shower, sink, mirror and toilet) for Airbnb-guests only. Please note that there indeed is a shower in the bathroom, but no bath! In the room itself, there is a double bed consisting out of 2 latex mattresses each measuring 90 x 200 cm. Please note that the bed consists out of TWO single mattresses measuring 90 x 200 cm and not out of one double mattress measuring 180 x 200 cm.

Heating in the room: There are two large radiators in the room located beneath all of the windows and one can adjust the temperature in the room by turning the temperature-knobs on these radiators.

There is also a sitting area with a couch, 2 chairs, cable television, a DVD-player, internet using Wifi as well as internet by the use of a cable. There are lots of books, mostly in the English language on various topics and a computer-desk in the study corner with a chair; a 'laptop friendly workspace' in case you need to get some work done.

On the airbnb-website this space cannot be called an apartment because the space does not include a kitchen. However, there is a coffee machine and a water kettle to make hot beverages. There is a small refrigerator for your convenience as well as cups, glasses, plates and cutlery.

Sheets and towels are 60° Celsius cleaned.

The surface area of the space is ± 50 m2.

Trains, buses and metro are within 5 min. walking distance.

My two cats 'Lucas' and 'Snout' do not enter the Airbnb-space on the first floor. This private room is cat-free.
