As we grow older, our accommodation is increasingly an important part of how we enjoy our holiday. Bastiaan and his Amsterdam Canal Apartment certainly contributes hugely to our vacation. It was an elegant and yet relaxing place with all the comforts one can wish for in a holiday apartment. Bas was welcoming and helpful without being intrusive.
Sixth time in Amsterdam, first time in this wonderful apartment. Will not stay in a Hotel here again. Coming back in December. What can I say nothing is needed all is here. Lovely location, quiet but not far from the hussel and bussel. The owner Bas is welcoming and as helpful as you need. Thank you. PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT
Rented based on all of the positive reviews - they are accurate. Good access to metro and trams but you will need to walk 5-10 minutes. Close to major attractions but far enough that you really get away from the masses of tourists. It was great relief to turn on "our" street after long day of crowds.
Quiet - hard to believe in city after 10pm - no street noise at all. You can hear neighbors but only had one occasion for few minutes where could complain about being noisy. Roomy and all amenities (never turned on TV though). University residential area so good cafes and shopping close but not at all rowdy. National Opera very close. Waterlooplein flea market across the canal.
Great to pick up dinner at grocery and relax and watch canal and people on street in evening. Late June would open windows for nice breeze.
Bas (owner) addressed a couple minor concerns very quickly and was excellent host. Far better experience than hotel room.
We enjoyed our stay in this historic central but quiet apartment with a great view, only a few steps from street level. It had everything needed to be self sufficient with cooking and washing etc and also had a safe. There were good choices to eat out near by, and a great chocolate shop too, all recommended by the owner Bastian, who live in upstairs apartment. He also includes and organised a taxi from airport etc. we would definitely stay here again.
We enjoyed our stay in this wonderful home. We felt so safe and welcomed so warmly by the owner. Very quiet area. The view of the canal is wonderful. Best people watching ever! Easy to use uber from here. Owner is above average in every aspect for information. Apartment is clean and safe. Water pressure is excellent. Great place to stay to visit the city. Easy to walk everywhere.
My wife and I stayed here four nights at the end of a river cruise. The apartment was perfect for us. The apartment is exactly as pictured. We didn't use the small kitchen except for breakfast but it looked like it had everything you need for light cooking. We did use the washer and dryer which was very handy.
The apartment is very clean and comfortable, perfect for two people. There was some noise from surrounding apartments, but not enough to keep us up at night. The highlight is the front window with a table in front of it. We spent many hours people watching and enjoying the view. It is a residential area away from the tourist throngs, but close enough to walk most places. We used Uber twice which was very reasonable.
Bas is a terrific host and let us store our luggage in the apartment when we first arrived while it was being cleaned. Highly recommend this apartment.
One could not ask for a better location! Only steps away from the metro (one stop from
central Station)! Close to all the amenities and action on a quiet canal street with a fantastic view! Equally great, the flat has a private entrance with direct access to the street! No climbing of steep flights of stairs to get to your accommodation! Flat is clean, cosy with all you need for a great stay and sound sleep!
Great reception, hosts live nearby!
