Property description

Your home away from home in the very heart of the historic city center!

The perfect romantic getaway for couples.
Ideally situated for business people.

Located on the famous Flower Market you will have the scent of flowers at hand. It is perfectly located within walking distance of all Points of Interest Amsterdam has to offer: such as the Nieuwmarkt square, Chinatown, the University of Amsterdam and Amstel river to the North; the historic 17th century canal belt and Museum Square to the South; the old Jew Quarter, Hermitage, Botanical garden to the East; and the famous Golden Bend and popular 9 streets and Jordaan area to the West.

From the living room you enjoy the view of the Singel canal and the historic monument tower The Munt. This fully furnished 1-bedroom apartment is on the 1st floor (2nd floor by US norms) of a 3-floor recently renovated canal building from 1905. It is a small apartment but very well equipped and perfectly decorated for your comfort.

The 35-square meters apartment includes:
- Spacious bedroom with double bed (140 x 190) and closet,
- Bathroom with shower,
- Fully equipped open kitchen
(stove/electric oven/refrigerator/microwave/toaster/kettle/coffeemaker and washer - no dish washer)
- Living room with a foldable table, a comfortable sofa (which can be unfolded to a double bed of 120 x 190) and a lounge bench, including a flat screen cable TV, DVD/cd player, and Wi-Fi internet connection.

I would not recommend my apartment for more than 2 adults. The convertable sofa would be convenient for a couple with children though.

Rates include: all taxes, weekly cleaning and bed-and bath-linen.

Distance to Points of Interest:
1 minute walk to the nearest supermarket, movie theatre and the main shopping area
5 minutes walk to the 9-Steets district and Dam square
10 minutes walk to the Vondelpark (the city park)
10 minutes walk to the Rembrandt house, Botanical Garden, Hermitage museum, the Nieuwmarkt square and Waterlooplein (large flea market)
15 minutes walk to the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum
15 minutes walk to the Anne Frank house
15 minutes walk from Amsterdam Central train station
25 minutes from Schiphol airport (by taxi)

Great restaurants, cafés and clubs are just steps away!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I have lived in Amsterdam since I was born, except for 5 years when I lived in the south of Spain. I think Amsterdam has it all: culture, history, friendliness, relaxedness and creativity. Amsterdam in summer is the best place in the world.

Why the Owner Chose Grachtengordel, Amsterdam, Netherlands:
It is the most wonderful apartment in the best spot of the city. Close to everything, yet very quiet at night!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Being able to step outside and have everything within reach, going to the movies next door, enjoying the lovely flowers every time you come home. There is a very positive vibe. The canal view enlarges the living room at least three times.
