About this listing

Best location in town. Ideal for couples, business travellers et cetera. In the middle of Amsterdam (really close to everything you could wish for) and still in a relatively quiet spot. The real citybuzz is around the corner and less in front :-)

The space

Many canalhouses are facing just one canal. This one is facing two. One canal in the front and one at the side. Situated at what is called "Little Venice" this light and bright appartment with many windows offers all comfort you'll search for in Amsterdam.

Because the appartment is situated in a bend of the canal, you'll experience an extraordinary view that oversees 5 bridges and over 750 metres (0,5 miles). But above all, the apartment is situated as central as you can be in the city with the famous 9 streets on the corner, the famous 9 bridges in 1 minutes walk and the well known shoppingstreets 'Kalverstraat' and 'Leidschestraat' on the other corner.

There are many, many, really many... cozy restaurants, bars, boutiques/shops, nightlfe places and so on in this area.

Everything is in walking distance. Near to lines 1, 2 and 5 (1 minute) and 4, 9, line 14, 16, 20 and 24 and 25 (3 minutes), metrostations Nieuwmarkt and Waterlooplein (15 minutes) and Central Station (20-25 minutes)

I would be delighted to provide you with the best tips and places to visit. Just let me know what you're interested in and i'll do my upmost best to provide custom made tips & tricks:-)

The house has one master bedroom for 2, but an aerobed can be placed in the livingroom for 2 extra guests. And if you like 'crowdy', The livingroom does have the space to accomodate a 5th or even a 6th person.

And if you are a couple with a little child; there's also a babybed and a baby buggy / carrycot available if needed. (please let me know in advance)

This is one of the best spots we have found in Amsterdam. Period. The apartment is beautiful - open, bright and airy. Creatively inspiring, for work or relaxation. Not one, but two canals! And you cannot get a better location. Walking distance to absolutely everything, or the city flowing around you as you sit at home. There's an elevator, which is awesome. Ingo was on chat before we reached, had a great connect when we met and was available for anything. He left a wonderful list of house tips and things to do, and left his Netflix cued up! It was an amazing stay, and we are definitely coming back.

Location, location, location… Apartment of Ingo & Marlies was located perfectly in the canal ring of Amsterdam. View from the window is awesome with a beautiful bridge, and Singel Canal with actually two angles which gives you panoramic views. Large living room windows, which start from knee-high, all the way to the ceiling makes the open-floor living area very bright and roomy. Also there’s another small canal (passage) on the side of the building which is front of the kitchen and the bedroom. Being on the 2nd floor (or 1st in Europe) gives you a perfect vantage point for canal view and people watching. Not too high, or not too low. We were able to walk pretty much EVERY major attraction destination within 5-20 minutes walk. From the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum to Rembrandt Square, from Red Light District to Jordaan, from Pijp to Nine Streets, from Amstel River to 7 Bridges, we walked everywhere with ease. Uber works fine for further away destinations, we didn’t really get into the trams and buses, as the time was limited for us. Ingo met us at the apartment upon our arrival, and had a nice chat with us with lots of information and recommendations about the city. He is very accessible with Airbnb’s messaging system, you can expect responds almost within minutes. Overall, it was an awesome experience for us, I highly recommend Amsterdam as your next destination in Europe and Ingo’s place is a perfect fit to make your vacation even more memorable. All the best! Arda p.s. Watch out for the bicycles (seriously), there's zillion of them, they're always in a hurry, and they never stop!!

Great location to visit the city. All the main attractions are accesible in walking distance. The street where the apartment is located is quite quite. Though, there's bars/pubs nearby if wanted. The apartment is furnished very modern and well equiped. Ingo gave a us a warm welcome and offer himself for anything that we would need. We stayed 3 nights with our 3 month old baby and that worked for us perfectly. She also enjoyed to stay at Ingo's place :) Thank you Ingo!
