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 :-)
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.

Because it's a residential building, please take my neighbours into account and don't be too loud or make a mess of the shared entrance, elevator and stairs. No loud music please. It's an old building and the sounds (especially the basses) are can be heard (and felt) in the entire building.
The apartment has wooden floors, so please take off high heels. Sneakers and 'normal' shoes are OK to wear :-)

There's also an babybed available that can be placed in the bedroom if needed/requested. Some kids toys are available and if needed, I can also try to borrow a baby buggy (if my sister doesn't need it).
Please do not smoke inside.
And please treat the house and my property as if it were your own. I'm sure you will :-)
