Apartment Herengracht with an unique canal view

In the heart of the center on the top floor from an old canal house, a listed monument, builds in 1687 you will find our apartment. It is located at the Herengracht, (Gentleman canal) declared by UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is an A+ location, NOT even 100 meters away from the famous Rembrandt Square. The Waldorf Astoria hotel has chosen this location for their new hotel. In the front of the apartment is the living room with a scenic-view of the Herengracht ( Gentleman canal) and the Thorbecke square. The bedroom is in the back of the apartment. In the living room is a dinner table where you can have your breakfast while enjoying the beautiful view on the Herengracht with its traditional canal houses on the other side of the canal, and the busy Thorbecke square. In the living room is a TV set, a DVD player and a Harman Kardon Radio, CD player and docking station for the iPod or iPhone with its excellent sound. There is a comfortable double sofa and also a kitchenette is in te living room. It is fully equipped: fridge with a build in Frigidaire, oven, microwave, stove, iron, water kettle and coffeemaker, with plenty of tea, coffee, chocolate and soup. The bedroom is very quite; you can hardly believe that you are in the middle of the city center with all its different sounds. The bedroom has a beautiful view on the gardens from the Keizersgracht. The bedroom has a double bed and an extra single bed can be set up.. Between the living room and the bedroom is the bathroom with your own toilet, big walk in shower, washbasin, and all toiletries you will need; including towels and a hair dryer. From the corridor is a stairway to the roof terrace with its panoramic view over the city. From the roof terrace you can see the Schiller Hotel at the Rembrandt Square. This hotel is just around the corner, a stone's throw away from our house. The Waldorf Astoria hotel is just next to our roofIn case you like an extra change of bed linen, and cleaning of the apartment we charge € 35,00 extra. Every day we empty the trash cans, clean the breakfast table, the sink of the kitchen, and the bathroom.

“Could not get any better! I can't wait to come back”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2013

Our family (2 adults, 3 children) stayed at apartment Herengracht for 3 nights but wish we could of stayed longer. Gijsje and Chan are the most friendly, welcoming, beautiful people that make sure your every need is taken care of! Our kids loved them :-)I have not experienced such great service and such care and thought. They made sure the children were happy and even did a little babysitting, the day we left to get a train south they packed us little snacks to take. They also offer discounts to attractions, saving you money. The breakfast is a top quality typical dutch spread and is so huge it also fed us for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea...Delicious! And the view, Oh my gosh the view is Gorgeous. The location is perfect. Do not bother wasting your time looking anywhere else, this place is the authentic dutch experience!

“Made to feel at home in amsterdam”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2013

Giesje and Chan are lovely, charming, welcoming hosts. Their eyrie apartment overlooking Herrengracht Canal and a bridge is spacious and comfortable. The breakfasts are generous, and delivered with a smile and a chat. You can open the windows at the front to gaze down onto the canal and street to watch life go by; or you can go to sleep in the peace and quiet of the back bedroom.

“Beautiful apartment, perfect location, most wonderful hosts”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2013

We stayed at the Herengracht apartment for 2 nights but wished we could have stayed longer. The hosts Giesje and Chan are extremely friendly and nice. Since we were coming from Paris and Giesje happened to be there as well, she kindly drove us to amsterdam and stopped by many intesresting places along the way. It was a amazing road trip and a start to our wonderful amsterdam experience. We arrived in amsterdam very late on the first night but Chan and Giesje were so kind as to give us a quick tour around where we live...and around the canals. They also made bought us sauggaes,yogurts, juices, bread and so much food that night. The apartment was very clean and spacious. It has a big bedroom, bathroom, living room and kitchen area. The view from 4th floor is amazing as well, you can look out and see the canals and the famous Bridges. Breakfast was amazing- they are so tasty and just so much that we can had to put some back in the fridge and take some snacks out. The hosts were very generous and we love all the food that they bought for us. The apartment was so centrally located that we could walk everywhere. Giesje also gave us discount cards to museums and boat cruises. We regret not getting to see amsterdam more but we were so happy to just stay in the the apartment and relax. The hosts, Giesje and Chan are very nice, generous, kind, and very caring. Staying at the apartment was the highlight of our trip- we wish we could stay longer and would definitely recommend this apartment to our friends and family.

“Wonderful apartment in perfect location”

Reviewed 15 Apr 2013

We are just back from a wonderful 3 days in this lovely apartment on Herengracht. The location is perfect, just off Rembrandtsplein but very quiet and peaceful, located next to the famous Seven Bridges. We spent the evenings watching the world go by from our vantage point, high up above the canal. All the tourist boats stop outside for photo opportunities. The beautiful canel houses next door will open as the Waldorf astoria in 2014 and the Mayor lives on the same road- it's a good location! The hosts are so accommodating and welcoming. They cannot do enough for you. We had the most amazing breakfasts every morning, enough to feed you for the entire day. Gijsje and Chan brought us a bottle of Prosecco as they found out it was my birthday and also made us a boozy trifle. They also gave lots of treats for our 5 year old little boy and discount cards to use at amsterdam attractions. A stay here gives you the best of both worlds - a private apartment/B&B.;


Reviewed 21 Nov 2012

Our stay at Herengracht was perfect. Yes, perfect! The space itself is wonderful, bright, clean, comfortable. The location, ideal, the views beautiful. But, most importantly our host and hostess took phenomenal care of us from the moment we stepped through the door, jet-lagged and exhausted, to the day we left. We were well fed, well guided and totally well cared for. They helped us find our way around the city and made suggestions about special out of the way places. They clearly enjoy people and love their business and you will love it too!

“Excelente B&B;!!!”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2012

La experiencia en este B&B; ha sido muy positiva. La calida bienvenida, la atención, amabilidad y trato cercano de Gijsje y Chan (propietarios del B&B;) y el excelente desayuno que nos sirvieron me obligan a recomendártelo. Es una casa holandesa del siglo Xvii situada junto a uno de los canales más emblemáticos de amsterdam (Herengracht) Está a 100 m. de la plaza Rembrand, en pleno corazón dela ciudad. El apartamento dispone de una cocina muy bien equipada, con lavavajillas, microondas y frigorífico. El baño dispone de todo lo necesario. Todo muy limpio. Los propietarios nos obsequiaron con cheques descuento para museos, compras, transporte y hasta nos llevaron al aeropuerto para despedirnos (qué detallazo). Gijsje y Chan, muchas gracias por todo. Volveremos a alojarnos cuando regresemos a amsterdam.

“Excellent apartment with roof terrace and generous and welcoming”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2012

This apartment is on the top floor of a beautiful house with direct access on to a roof terrace. The location is excellent - central without being noisy. The furniture and sleeping arrangements were very good for the three of us. The iPod stereo was a nice touch and the fridge was soon filled with leftovers from the plentiful breakfast. The owners brought up breakfast within 30minutes of a couple of rings on the phone, no matter how late in the morning we woke up!

“Great place, with excelent location and even better owners!!!”
