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 kitchenette 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 apartment exceeded my expectations. The view from the front windows onto the canal is spectacular. Close walking distance to everything we wanted to see in the museum district, quiet enough to get a good night's sleep, what more could you ask for? Check out the Pulitzer's Bar down the street for amazing cocktails in a nicely appointed setting, they do a really great job. Thanks, Joop!

We loved our stay in Joop’s home. I’d been to Amsterdam a year before and knew this was the prime location to stay. Lovely immediate vicinity and really easy to walk to the museums too. I booked it because of the photos and the comments about the great food market on the corner. Lived up to all of the great comments! I would definitely rent it again!

Joops flat is amazing! We loved the central location and beautiful views of the canal. The flat is spacious and very private for a “shared” space, definitely feels like you are staying in your own flat. So close and walking distance to main central station. You will fall in love with this place :)
