About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2)

This beautiful and light boutique style apartment is situated in the leafy Plantage area which is in the heart of the city of Amsterdam.

It has been completely renovated and lovingly furnished. The spacious apartment has high original ornamental ceilings, a display fireplace and 3 large windows on the North and South side.

The kitchen is like everything else in the apartment – simple, beautiful and high quality and is fully equipped including dishwasher, fridge-freezer, washer/dryer, SMEG hob/oven and granite worktops.

The bathroom includes a large walk-in shower with double basin vanity unit. The bedroom has an original ornamental ceiling, king-sized bed, built-in wardrobes and two large original doors that close the bedroom and bathroom from the open-plan living/kitchen space. The WC/toilet is located separately to the bathroom.

Each piece of furniture has been chosen to create a beautiful and relaxing home. The apartment also has high-speed wireless internet, and a 32-inch Samsung flat-screen TV, DVD player and iPod speaker base.

This first-floor apartment is located very close to the Amsterdam Business School on a leafy and charming street in a quiet residential part of the city.

Within 1-3 mins you can walk to various local cafes, restaurants, bakery, supermarket, book store, Kriterion (arty) movie house, Oosterpark (lovely green park), multiple canals, Artis Zoo and the metro/tram.

Take a 10-15 min (beautiful and safe) walk, and you are out of the calm and tranquility and into the buzzing ‘hub’ of the more crowded, busy, exciting and ‘touristy’ part of the city.

If you are looking for a beautiful, quiet, relaxing well loved home to stay in which is right in the heart of the city to enjoy while you explore the canals, museums, shops, parks, restaurants and culture of Amsterdam, then this apartment is the perfect choice.

About Kate Gordon

Hi! I live locally and so am always on hand if you have any questions or need any suggestions on what to do or where to go, eat or what to see when you are staying in this wonderful and calm oasis in central Amsterdam.

Kate Gordon purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Kate Gordon chose Grachtengordel

I love the Plantage area of Central Amsterdam. It's green and leafy, charming, full of restaurants and local cafes. It's very safe and quiet and provides a truly local and authentic experience of Amsterdam.

It's in the old Jewish quarter and is steeped in history. The location is BEAUTIFUL. In the heart of the city and yet away from the tourists and crowds.

What makes this apartment unique

This area of Amsterdam is incredibly beautiful. Quiet, relaxed, residential, friendly, safe and full of culture, museums, canals and the Amsterdam University.

Locals sitting outside in the sunshine in cafe terraces, children playing, students at the University and locals going about their daily lives.

Comfortable, cozy, clean, convenient and lacks nothing

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was one of the best we stayed in during our three weeks in Europe and the U.K. It is everything we needed and more. The neighborhood is quiet and close to grocery and several tram lines. The kitchen has full size appliances making cooking a breeze. Communication from start to finish was quick and easy. Even the "how to" manual about the apartment was thorough and easy to understand. I can't recommend this apartment enough.

Wonderful Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for about four weeks in this apartment from mid-November to mid-December. It was a really wonderful experience, and I highly recommend it. The apartment is spacious and situated in a perfect location -- far enough from the center of Amsterdam to be quiet and peaceful, but still with lots of activity during the day and close enough that you can walk or take public transportation everywhere you would like to go. There is a grocery store a few minutes away, and some nice restaurants even closer.

The apartment is very comfortable, with nice furniture and everything you could need. The pictures online don't really do it justice -- we looked at a few places before renting and most had pictures that were staged with wide angle lenses that made them look much bigger than they actually are. This one looks smaller in the pictures than it is in real life. The landlady, Kate, was very friendly and helpful.

If I ever come back to Amsterdam, I will really want to stay in this place. I miss it!

Clean, spacious and well furnished.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay — in a quiet residential neighborhood but a nice walk to the big museums (20-25 minutes) or to Dam Square (about 25 minutes). The landlord is very helpful and friendly. A great base for explorating a beautiful city,

Great place with every amenity one could ask for.

  • 5 of 5

Kate is very helpful in every aspect of staying at the apartment. She is there for anything you need. The apartment is in a non-touristy area of very touristy Amsterdam. However, it is convenient to everything.

The only thing you need to be aware of is that, as in most buildings in Amsterdam, there are very narrow steep steps to climb getting to the apartment.

If I were coming back to Amsterdam,

I would stay here in a heart beat.

We had a wonderful stay at this clean, cozy and well equipped apartment. Kate was super helpful when she checked us in, giving us tips on where to eat and what to see. I would stay here again and highly recommend the apartment and Kate as a host!
