Welcome to the Empress Apartment. The first thing you notice is the stunning view over the Keizersgracht in the nine streets area. The apartment contains 3 rooms: the living room, en-suite bedroom and a dining room with a small kitchen and bathroom. When staying at this apartment, you own the whole first floor of my building and everything is private ( bathroom, kitchen, livingroom, etc )

The space

The Empress Apartment is located in a typical Amsterdam merchant house from 1750, of which the lower part was renovated in beautiful Jugendstil in 1900. With a great view on the Emperor’s Canal (the Keizersgracht), and a view on the first music hall of the city and the second fanciest hotel in town, the Dylan, it’s a very unique location within the famous 'nine streets' area. Within walking distance of Central Station, Damsquare, Leidseplein, Rembrandtplein, Spui, Kalverstraat (shopping street), the museum district, etc.

In the living room you will find a couch, dining table and a closet that you can use. There are also some interesting books for you to read. The bedroom, which is attached to the living room and separated by original wooden doors, has a double bed or two singles; please let us know which you prefer.

In the private kitchen, which you reach via the shared hallway that leads you to the back of the house, you will find a fridge, a microwave and a coffee- and espresso machine (with pads). There is also a small dining table where you can have your breakfast, and a couch, which can be made into another bed. The private bathroom is also located at the back of the house. We provide you with soap, toilet paper, towels and bed linen.

The total surface of the apartment is 60 square meters. The hallway with original Art Deco details is shared with the owners of the house who live on the top floors.

All rooms in this building are non-smoking only.

If you would like to make a reservation, please also tell us a little bit about yourself.

We are looking forward to meeting you,

Joop's place gives you a front and center view of picturesque Amsterdam, with its giant windows that look right on the canal. Very comfortable king sized bed. And while you are in the heart of the city, it's a quiet respite once the day's over. We were there recently for the Pride Parade, which was just lovely, peaceful and quiet the next day. Couple of blocks away from the markets for groceries / supplies, as well as tons of restaurants/shops. Joop is very helpful, easy to contact. Great for a couple, or a single person.

Beautiful room with semi private bathroom. Very walkable area with a beautiful canal view. Being August, it did get a little warm in the afternoon/evening, a fan in the room would make a nice addition!

Great location within walking distance to most everything. Joop was very accommodating, we had a early morning flight, and he was able to let us check in before the normal check in time.

This was an outstanding place to stay. The communicating leading up to our stay there was outstanding....especially given that we were traveling from Kenya and had a really early arrival time. Joop could not have been more understanding and accommodating. IT was a very comfortable place for 2 grown adults (a mom and grown son) to have a bit of privacy and room to move around. I appreciated everything about his home and our experience there. The location was perfect for all the sites and walking that we did. I highly recommend staying at this fabulous home!

Great location. Gets lively in daytime and very quiet at night... Great market on the corner street with o lot of organic produce. The apartment is a bit outdated. Bathroom and bedroom are separated by a rather long hallway. Although the location is very convenient cant say that the place is cozy and inviting. However, we had a great time and the host was very pleasant.
