Prinx studios are situated within the Amsterdam historical city centre in a canal house at the canal Lijnbaansgracht. Most attractions are within walking distance. The Museum Area: Rijksmuseum (National Gallery: Rembrandt among others) and Van Gogh Museum are just 100 meter away from the house. The Central Station can easily be reached by different tram lines. While during the day a lively Amsterdam’s historical and cultural neighbourhood, the location is quiet. You will be surrounded by typical historical houses and the rest of the canals are just around the corner. The canal Spiegelgracht, 20 meters away from the house, is famous for its art galleries and antique shops. In the neighbourhood you can also find many breakfast cafes and restaurants. The studios have been very recently renovated (2008) and face either a quiet street or the canal Lijnbaansgracht. Besides the bathroom, each studio has a living-dining area -with cooking facilities- and a bed area. On request we can prepare either a double bed or twins. In your fridge, you will find a bottle of Catalan sparkling wine cava (and orange juice) as a welcome drink.

We stayed 4 nights in the apt in the back, very lovely, clean and comfortable. We liked the privacy, and yet the location was central and outstanding. Bring your own toiletries, even soap! No breakfast but lots of places to eat or buy groceries nearby. We left our rental car in one of the Park and Ride garages near the Olympic stadium as our hosts suggested and that was fine, it included a free tram ride round trip for 2 of us, only 10 min away. Forget about parking near the guest house. We rented bikes at King rental around the corner, so much fun, easy and fastest way to get around. The Hansel and Gretl cafe on the corner was very good for breakfast or lunch.

We just stayed at Prinx Studio for a week and it was the perfect accamodation for us. I researched a ton online and finally found what I was looking for. From my initial inquiry, to the arrival instructions, the room overlooking the canal, the cost, the departure….everything was perfect. The neighborhood is near all of the museums, great restaurants, cafe's, Leidseplein, gallery's, shopping, bike rentals etc. What it's not near should certainly be within walking distance, it's Amsterdam after all. Ton & Héctor are great and are very helpful, knowledgable and they run a great, super clean place. I don't write these referrals as much as I should but this one was a must. I highly recommend Prinx Studio's.

We stayed here for a week and had a delightful time. The room and bathroom were immaculately clean. The location was fabulous-as was the view of the canal outside our window. Ton and Hector were wonderful hosts-very kind and accomodating in answering a variety of questions we had. We would just say to others that there is no air conditioning here-though there is a fan. The room can get warm in very hot weather but really wasn't a problem most of the time we were there.

Stayed here June 2009. Exceptionally clean, modern, cozy, and convenient! We stayed in 2 different apartments, one for 5 days at the beginning of our trip and the other on our way back through Amsterdam. Both were immaculate, very private, and great locations. Ton was super nice and we had a wonderful time. No hotel could match the coziness, cleanliness, and value of staying at Prinx. Wonderful if you have a particular diet and don't want to or can't eat out every meal. I would highly recommend them to anyone and can't wait to stay here again on our next visit!
