The apartment occupies the two top floors of a monumental Dutch building from 19th century. No canal view, but you can see a beautiful backyard from the window. Perfect location: 15 min. walk from the museums area, just around the corner of Leidseplein and in the middle of the popular boutique-area "the nine streets". Please note: I moved recently to this apartment so the furniture is scarce and there are still a couple of bare lightbulbs still hanging. That said, everything works fine.
