AmsterdamStay will have you feeling like a local..

Our vacation rentals allow guests to get under the skin of the city. We have a Rembrandt apartment, an Olympic apartment, a Vondel park apartment, etc. All aptly named to refer to the proximity of the property to the respective attraction. The Anne Frank apartment , which occupies an entire floor in a canal house just opposite the eponymous museum, has time and again proven one of our most popular rentals in the city.” comments Emmett Brady of AmsterdamStay.

"The Anne Frank apartment garnered media interest when it was first offered to visitors but over the years it has not lost any of its appeal.” adds Emmett.

Anne Frank Museum

The secret annex where Anne wrote her historic diary is located in the Jordaan area. She and her family were hid for two years during the occupation of the Netherlands by the Nazis in this spot, and after the war was converted into a museum. Anne Frank House is situated on the scenic Prinsengracht canal welcomes visitors daily.

The Anne Frank Apartment

The apartment, which occupies a house right across from the museum, sleeps up to five guests and is suitable for a small family or a group of friends staying together. It features a modern kitchen, a spacious living room with three extra beds, a cosy bedroom and a bathroom. Best of all, the apartment is within walking distance from Amsterdam Centraal Station, the 9 Streets shopping quarter, Dam Square and a whole array of other attractions.

The Jordaan is a historic area with a rich past. Once home to such luminaries as Rembrandt and Anne Frank, today the Jordaan is among the trendiest districts in Amsterdam. The beautifully renovated canal houses are inhabited by young entrepreneurs, artists and students. Jordaan boasts a vibrant nightlife, splendid markets, jewellery ateliers, cosy brown pubs, art galleries and quaint boutiques. You can wonder the narrow alleys, the scenic canal streets and the hidden courtyards, while mixing and mingling with the locals.
