My family of 5 stayed in this apartment for a week in June 2018. It was very comfortable, clean and spacious. It had even more amenities than we needed. It was a perfect location in terms of walking to the major sites. Charles did a super job of communicating with us with regard to our arrival/departure. He was also very helpful providing us with tips on what to see and do, and where to eat (giving us spots in a variety of locations and price ranges.) I was pleasantly surprised that the apartment was very accurately represented in the photos shown.
The apartment was located close to multiple landmarks our group had chosen to see. Easily walk-able if you choose but also easily bike-able to anywhere in Amsterdam! I would absolutely stay at Charles place again if I were to visit Amsterdam again. Check in-Check out was easy. Charles was near by if needed(luckily we didn't have to bother him much).
Apartment looked as it did in the pictures! Neat and roomy!
I had the pleasure of staying at the Amsterdam City Canal Apartment with my family for 4 days in May. The apartment is located on a lovely, quiet street overlooking one of Amsterdam's beautiful canals. It is very close to restaurants, bars and shops, and an easy 15-20 minute walk to most attractions and the city center. You also have easy access to public transportation.
The apartment is large, well appointed and quite comfortable. It has a fully equipped kitchen with a dinning area and a spacious sitting room with large windows overlooking the canal. The bedrooms were large with comfortable beds. There were 2 bathrooms and a laundry room available. The apartment also had a lovely porch oerlooking the back yard garden. Everrything was very clean, well cared for, and comfortable. We were greated with a lovely basket or local treats and some staples in the refrigerator (milk, juice etc.). This was a very pleasant surprise and highly appreciated.
The only concern I had was with the stairs leading to the apartment. This was quite a steep climb with luggage, but we got used to it quickly and after the bags were brought upstairs it was no problem.
I would reccomend this apartment to friends and family. We very much enjoyed our short time in Amsterdam and the apartment was a wonderful place to call home.
we stayed here a group of friends and had a wonderful time. It is close to many attractions and it has lots of bars and restaurants nearby. The apartment is convenient and clean and the owner really made us feel at home.
Please notice that there is a staircase you need to climb in order to enter the apartment.
Our family of seven enjoyed staying in this house. Easy access to markets, restaurants and trams. A short walk to the center of town. The bedrooms were comfortable and the living area was large enough for us to sit and be together.
The apartment was perfect for the 8 of us who were staying for a uni reunion long weekend. The area was quiet but there were plenty of shops, bars, restaurants and cafes nearby, and we walked everywhere as all the main sights were within 30 mins walk. The bedrooms were large, with comfy beds and sitting room/kitchen had plenty of space and was well equipped. There were a few nice touches like the wine and tea etc which meant we didn't have to race down to the (excellent) supermarket too. Charles was good at communications in the lead up to our visit and was also very accommodating - allowing us to check in early and then store our bags behind after our stay. If you're looking for a stay in an authentic Amsterdam place in a quiet residential area then Charles' place would be hard to beat.
My family and I stayed at this wonderful rental. Although the stairs were daunting at first once we got our luggage up it was fine. The apartment was clean and spacious and was perfect for 6. Close to groceries, restaurants and museums the location was perfect.
