The Old Harbour E Apartment is located in the Oosterdok area close to the Central Station. This two bedroom short stay apartment is ideal for 6 persons who would like to experience the crazy city of Amsterdam.
This apartment is very spacious and has a classical touch. The high ceiling has white beams and there is a wooden floor throughout the apartment which gives a warm and cozy atmosphere. The large windows give you a nice view on the canal but they also allow natural light to come in.
The living room has a comfortable sofa bed and three big sitting chairs but also a flat screen television to watch a football game of Ajax. The dining room is separated by a wall from the living room and has a large dining table for six people. This is also the ideal place to do some work on your laptop. Wireless internet is available.
The open kitchen has all the equipment you need to prepare a nice meal or a breakfast. It has an oven, a microwave, a fridge and a dish washer with tablets available in the cupboard. There is a kettle to boil water for a cup of tea or a coffee machine to make a fresh cup of coffee. Coffee pads and tea bags with sugar and milk are waiting for you to use.
This apartment has two bedrooms one has a double bed and the other has two single beds and both have cupboards for your clothes. The bathroom has a nice shower but also a bathtub. In the hallway there is a separate toilet.
Your apartment is a walking distance away from the centre part of Amsterdam. You can even walk to the famous Red Light district. The ladies of the night will give you a warm welcome not because you are so handsome but because of your money. If the curtains are closed and the red light is burning then the lady has a customer. It is a safe place to be because the pimps want to protect their business. And if you really want to have a strange experience, go to the sex museum in this district.
When you are in Amsterdam it is also nice to try some typical Dutch things. Go to a Bruine Kroeg or a brown café with a typical atmosphere of candles and dimmed lights. Try a jenever or a borrel. This is a shot of Dutch brandy or drink the local beer of Amsterdam called Amstel Beer.
A real Dutch experience is to go to a market. The most famous market is on the Albert Cuypstraat six days per week. This Albert Cuyp market is a noisy place with yelling market sellers who will try to get your attention. Do like the Dutch and buy a raw salted herring with onions. Hold this herring by its tail and let the raw herring dipped with onions slide into your mouth.
