Property description

The Willem 1 Guest House is part of an 18th century canal side residence, The Prince of Holland on Prinsengracht, and it is located in the historic centre of Amsterdam, within the canal belt (grachtengordel, in Dutch).

The accommodation is elegant and stylish, with beautiful canal views over one the most famous canal in Amsterdam, the Prinsengracht. One of our best accommodations for a memorable stay in Amsterdam!

This luxurious canal house is beautifully finished with high end modern furniture and special touches that make it a truly special place to stay. The views are amazing: at the rear of the building, where the bedroom is located, you can see the typical Dutch rooftops and a lot of sky view; from the living room you can see the Prinsengracht canal and the grand canal houses.

The apartment is totally private for you and it is the perfect vacation or business rental to enjoy the city center.

The bedroom is very large, with beautiful furniture and a king size bed. It is also possible to have twin beds if you wish.
The living room offers a fireplace (a must in the winter!) to make it perfect for a romantic get away with your partner - or for solo travellers too of course.
The dining area, open between the kitchen and the living room, offers a glass table with 4 comfortable chairs.

Unfortunately according to new rules of the city council of Amsterdam, it is not allowed anymore to offer cooking facilities in this property from 1st October 2017. For that reason the cook plate and the oven/microwave will be removed from the kitchen before that date. But the other appliances will stay there, including coffee and tea facilities.
We do recommend the use one of the many food delivery companies in the city, that you can order through their apps (Uber Eats, Deliveroo, Foodora and Thuisbezorgd), if you want to eat there.

Finally, the bathroom has a jacuzzi bath and separate rain shower.
Besides the fireplace, allover the apartment you have central heating for the winter and air conditioning for warm days.

This accommodation is set on the third floor with an elevator, followed by 3 steps up to the entrance door.

If you are in a group of four we can offer you the Willem 2 Guest House to combine with this accommodation.

Unfortunately it is not suitable for children under 8 years old and smoking is strictly forbidden.

Map of location

Area description

This residence is located in the historic city centre of Amsterdam, within the canal belt (grachtengordel, in Dutch). You will be in walking distance to all the best highlights of Amsterdam!

From the house you walk into the popular Leidsestraat, with its hip shops and canals fanning out with cafe's and chic and popular restaurants.
Walking through this street to the left, you get to the left the Flower Market and the new Abercrombie & Fitch Store. To the right, you'll be at Leidseplein with the famous theatres, Apple Store, coffee shops, and a countless variety of cafés and restaurants.
Further down you can reach the Vondelpark (the biggest park in the city centre), and the Museum Square (Museumplein, in Dutch) with the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk Museum (modern art), all recently reopened.

From here you can easily walk to other areas of the city, like the Jordaan, Dam Square, Nieuwmarkt and Central Station, but if you wish just take tram ride, as public transport is just 50m from your doorsteps.

The Prinsengracht canal is also in the middle of all the festivities around coronation day. And during Amsterdam Gay Pride, you can watch the Boat Canal Parade passing by from your own window!

Beds sizes

King size (180 x 210 cm)

- Possible to have twin beds (in the same bedroom).
