Come and stay at our charming city studio apartment for 2 in the delightful Old South district of Amsterdam.
Located upon the 3rd floor, you will find a well-designed and extremely inviting abode, so perfect for a couple or two friends visiting the city. A fantastic kitchen area enables you to whisk up favourite meals form home or enjoy a cooked breakfast at any time of the day that suits you. Unlike staying in a hotel room, you are your own boss and you can really relax here as though living like a local in the city.
The apartment incorporates a double bed as well as a flat screen TV to keep you both entertained. The dining table and chairs enables you to enjoy an undisturbed private meal together in comfort and there’s storage for all your travel items and clothing provided.
Topping off this enviable holiday home is a private bathroom fitted with a sink, shower and of course a toilet.
You will find the apartment located almost alongside the beautiful River Amstel in the Old South district of the city. Getting to the apartment is very easy as you can take a tram form Central Station and alight at Ceintuurbaan, just a few streets away. During you holiday you might like to hire bicycles and explore Amsterdam at a slightly faster pace. The city’s cycle paths are extremely safe since they keep you separate from regular traffic most of the time. You will find lots of affordable cycle hire shops in the centre.
If you are a fan of culture and great art works then make your way to the west to find Museum Square. Here you can come face to face with Van Gogh’s self-portraits at the museum of his name. Or for something more ‘modern’ check out the Stedelijk whose world class art collection will take your breath away. For history and Dutch masters head to the Rijksmuseum at the north end of the square. You will notice that the grandiose building itself is very similar to Central Station and they were indeed designed by the same man, Petrus J.H. Cuypers in the late 19th century.
There are plenty of parklands to explore including the Sarphatipark which is very close by and the huge mile-long Vondelpark to the west. So ideal for a picnic on a warm day!
Cross over the river and wander at your leisure around the pretty Plantage district. Take a tour of Artis Zoo or learn about the city’s recent dark past at the Hollandse Schouwberg. This was once one of the city’s most popular theatres but its use took a terrible change overnight during the Nazi occupation period of the Second World War. This was the place in the city where local Jewish people were detained before being dispatched to the concentration camps. Today it is a place of memorial where you can pay your respects to the estimated 80,000 plus people who were removed from the city during its darkest hours. It is important that we remember the past to learn for the future and this building has an important place in the recent history of the city. To learn more you can also visit the Jewish History Museum in the Waterlooplein during your visit. Also a firm favourite on the visitors’ lists is of course the infamous Anne Frank House Museum.
