This was our first visit to Amsterdam. The apartment is superbly located, in a quiet location, overlooking the canal, within walking distance of most of the major attractions. The apartment itself was perfect, stylishly and well furnished, with wonderful high ceilings. Despite the temperatures dropping to -7c at night, it was always warm enough. Hans and Marcel, the owners, explained everything at check-in and were available if needed and left complimentary tea, coffee, wine, beer and stroopwafels. I would recommend this apartment without hesitation.
Marcel has a great rental, it is very convienent to tram lines and is an easy walk to Dam Square. Others have commented on the stairs being steep, well it is no worse than the Rembrandt house and is in keeping with the period of the house. The view is exceptional.
This flat is as described; beautifully decorated, central lovely part of the city, lovely canal views, clean and the owner was very nice and helpful.
The stairs up to it are quite steep and narrow, so probably best not to book if you are elderly or have bad legs!
Would love to stay there again.
Our second visit to Marcel and Hans' beautiful canal house. Fantastic central location. Clean and very comfortable with the fire adding a little extra luxury. Thanks again guys. Hopefully see you again.
The location is postcard-perfect and the apartment itself is one of the best we have ever stayed in. The view of the canal from the living area was a great way to wake up in the morning with a cup of coffee and in the evening to unwind with a glass of wine. Everything about the rental experience was fantastic; from reservations to arrival/checkin to checkout was done professionally and efficiently. We could not have found a better place. We can't wait to go back!
As an experienced A-dam vacation apartment renter, I am picky. This apartment is in the top tier of properties I have experienced. All A-dam vacation rentals have some minor issues that result when old structures are adapted for new uses. Pros: location (on canal/across from Marqt natural food store); one-flight of stairs access (2nd floor for Westerners), very clean, nicely decorated, comfortable beds and furnishings, TVs in each bedroom and living room, nice size rooms, welcome package of beverages/snacks, very responsive landlord, bedrooms in back allow quiet. Cons: minor-curving stairs-think spiral; some noise if stayers are renting unit above (on 3rd level). Note that 2nd bedroom with its private bathroom, is located across from main apartment area, separated by shared stairwell. Would stay again.
Simply, this is the most wonderful place to stay in Amsterdam!!! Amenities are tremendous, location is superb, and the hospitality is outstanding!!!!!
We will be back!!!
Thank you Marcel and Hans!
