Location was near walking distance of most of the attractions that visitors to Amsterdam want to see.View from front window was a lovely view of a canal while back was greenery gardens. Nuit, one of the owners,. was very hospitable and even got help getting the suitcases up the steps to the second floor which are narrow but railed and carpeted. Was always available for questions and supplies if we ran out. Kitchen well stocked with dishes and other kitchen items.Had a great stay !
We enjoyed our 3 day stay at the well equipped, clean and spacious CananlHome. Nurit, the owner, provided us with easy directions to get to her home, greeted us with a a binder full of maps, great recommendations for museums, restaurants, activities and many other travel tips. She did all our planning for us! The location was perfect for our family-we walked everywhere! We only used the tram twice-once when we arrived to Amsterdam at the Central Station and once after we ended up near the Central Station after walking all day, 5+ miles.
We had a great time staying at this beautiful apartment. Nurit and Alex were caring hosts and the apartment was well equipt.Yes, the stairs were very steep, but part of the charm. We would definitely reccommend this place!
Lovely apartment and in a great location for all the sights of Amsterdam. Short walk to Anne Frank House, Vondlepark and the local markets. Short tram journey from the train station.
Stairs are typical for the area and take a bit of getting used to but no issue for us. Apartment has a great view of the canal and has all a the facilities you need for a short stay. Owners give great advice about local places to go and we were happy with their suggestions for places to eat.
All in all a great apartment and one we will return to if we visit Amsterdam again.
We just loved this apartment. It was so modern, spacious and clean, even more surprising for a historic building. The photos don't do justice to how spacious it was. The little terrace off the back was a nice bonus and we sat outside for lunch to enjoy a bit of sun one day. The kitchen had everything we needed, including a stool to reach the upper cabinets (appreciated, as neither of us are very tall.) We were also surprised by how quiet it was in the apartment, even though the street below was a little busy.
For those not familiar with historic European and traditional Dutch style buildings, the stairs to the apartment took some getting used to (and a bit of a spirit of adventure), and the layout of the bathroom was a little tight. However, the big shower - with very good water pressure - and 2nd sink/mirror in the bedroom helped balance this just fine for our needs.
The location was perfect for us, just a short walk to museums, Vondelpark and the Jordaan, and plenty of shops and restaurants. Other than a canal boat tour, we walked everywhere, and then Uber'ed once or twice for further-out destinations. Sidebar: We had very good experiences and prices using Uber; seemed to be much less expensive than taxis.
Nurit and Alex were fantastic, answering all our questions very promptly, and making sure we had everything we needed.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
