Why Owner chose Grachtengordel
This old Grachtenpand reminds your at the interior paintings of the Old Master PIETER DE HOOCH with its hall and annex and the black white chequered floor. We have tried to reshape that atmosphere to offer you a different experience.

We arrived early and Peter was gracious enough to allow for an early check-in...Thank you Peter!
When we arrived, there was no hot water. Fortunately, Peter was able to correct the issue before it became a problem for us. He had recently had a new tankless water heater put in which just needed a quick "reset". Otherwise, the apartment was large with four separate bedrooms (two on the 3rd floor and two on the 4th floor), two full bathrooms with showers (3rd and 4th floors, plus one additional water closet on the 1st floor) and two kitchens on the1st and 3rd floors.
Since I was with three of my business partners we needed a large apartment with 4 separate bedrooms and at least 2.5 baths. This apartment met our needs with it's size, cleanliness and proximity to everything cool in Amsterdam. We enjoyed our stay here...Thank you!
We rented both apartments for a family of 4 in order to gain 2 bathrooms. The manager tries hard to please. We were able to drop luggage off on arrival even though the space was being cleaned. She provided fresh orange juice and had purchased flowers for our stay. Appliances work well and the kitchen is stocked with new dishes and a large refrigerator. Bath rooms (2.5) were new and very nice. The rooms that do not face the canal are comfortable with new sheets. The second floor sitting room is very comfortable and you can watch the folks walking on the canal. Property is located 2 minutes walk from tram that gets to to/from train station and museum areas. This is a big plus. Major shopping around the corner and that pleased my teens.
The property is a canal house thus it has a moldy smell in the back of the ground floor where the kitchen is located. The moldy smell is also located in the bedrooms that face the canal and the windows in one of the bedrooms cannot be opened. Note that you can avoid the mold smell if you use the back bedrooms and there is no issues with the bathrooms. We arrived during a heat wave and as typical of many places in the EU, there is not air conditioning and this property does not have fans. The property has numerous balconies and windows that provided cross breeze so it may not be an issue if you can live without air conditioning or the weather is the typical cooler Amsterdam weather. We had to keep the doors and windows opened for air so it was a bit noisy at night as one to two blocks over is an entertainment district and the night clubbers often woke us up around 2:30 a.m. to 4:30 a.m. Space has the typical canal stair case thus spiral and narrow so you should be mobile and it may not be appropriate for young children.
Manager surprised us by asking for a 4% tourist tax in cash at check in. It would have been better to charge this at reservation so the full price of the stay is known.
Overall, we did have a good stay, the location is convenient and we saved vs. renting two rooms at a hotels. If they can get rid of the moldy smell, I would give it a 4 star rating.
FIRST OF ALL: YOUR LAST SENTENCE OF YOUR REVIEW DID MENTION A **** 4 STARS RATING if the house did not have a certain smell and you were not obliged to pay the Tourist Tax at your arrival.
These two things need to be analyzed:
You did not mention in your review that you SUFFER FROM ALLERGY so your reaction is quite clear that the presence of my Dog Lexus at our Meet & Greet has given you a problem. Until now we didn't have had such a critic of a smell which actually has been completely disappeared.
IN THE FUTURE I will not let the dog anymore into the house to avoid these problems.
Also the day of your arrival it had been extremely hot: 32 degrees, a heath wave!
SEcondly: your critic on the paying of the tourist tax is not reasonable as it has been mentioned in the offer in advance and on the invoice Homeaway Payment send to you: HOMEAWAY is actually working on the concept of getting it all inclusive in the near future.
I from my side would very much have appreciate that you mentioned and paid € 45) for the 4 extra sheets and bath towels that had been taken from my private linen cupboard and that after control the house was quite in a state of disorder.
I did not expect this negative attitude as you mentioned in your review our 'tries hard' intention to give you as our distinguished guests the warmest welcome possible: we even permitted you to check-in 4 hours before the official time at 11.30 hrs.
CONCLUSION: you offered to change your rating in 4**** stars which seems to you reasonable as well but you did not succeeded!
Nothing can beat the location. Centrally located right on Prinsengracht canal, and metres from major tram routes its perfect. Built in 1630 this a truly authentice canal house experience. Amstersam at its best!
We are very glad and satisfied that we could offer you this experience you so much appreciate!
Hope to see you back.
Wonderful & Convenient
Everything was as expected, lovely old home that was full of character. The murals were beautiful & the home was very comfortable. There are some areas of the home that need to be improved, such as the deck outside but these things did not impact our stay. The location was perfect. I would definitely stay here again & recommend it to others.
We feel very satisfied that the pictures we made have given the right impression what could be expected and you had a nice stay!. Thanks for your possitive recommendation.
Location, Location, Location
You couldn't ask for a better location. The home is located along the Prinsengracht canal in a bustling neighborhood, convenient to restaurants, bars, shopping, the tram, and service establishments like a terrific hairstlyist next door. Expect the typical quirks of a 17th century home. WIFI was super fast though!
Keep in mind that Amsterdam limits the # of guests to a maximum of 4 people, even though the house is so spacious.
Marja and Peter were very responsive to my inquiries via email.
It was our pleasure having you as guests because you were so enthusiastic.
Thanks for leaving the house in good order and hope to see you back.
Great location and very comfortable
Beautiful, old apartment with lots of space. The location was perfect to seeing Amsterdam, easy to walk to anywhere. We felt very comfortable here, felt like home. Would definitely rent again.
Thanks Peggy for your fantastic compliment: 'You felt at home!'
This is what we had in mind during the interior decoration period. In particular our theme: the Dutch (painting) Masters which you so much appreciate at our Meet and Greet session!
