About Cido Hermsen
We are a couple loves traveling and always trying to rent an apartments during our trips just to feel as we are living in that country. First thing we do is trying to find a local markets ,do shopping and cooking at our new home.So when we have the second apartment in the same building we decided to give this opportunity to our guests in the best part of Amsterdam.So our guests are being also our neighbors.It became a hobby for us while I am working as a dentist and my husband works as an engineer.
Cido Hermsen purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Cido Hermsen chose Grachtengordel-West
We live also in the same building so we decided that 2 apartment is too much for us and began to rent it to our guests since 2010
What makes this Apartment unique
This is the most popular area called Jordaan with many small cafes and restaurants.During the day it is always alive with street musicians,boats or somedays with local markets .At nights it is so peaceful and safe and you hardly hear trafic although the apartment is located centrum centrum. It is 2 minutes walking distance to Anna frank's house and 20 minutes to the museums. There are many uniek shops around and 2 parks .Train station is 10 minutes walking distance. So you dont need any public transport. The view from the apartment is delightful with boat houses and the view of Norden church. All the day you can watch passing of boats on the prinsencanal.My favourite ritual is going to saturday market just across the house to buy weekly fresh flowers and fish to cook for weekend.We are sure you will also enjoy beeing here as we are enjoying since 12 years.

Perfect home away from home in charming and central Jordaan neighborhood
Everything was perfect with our stay here. The apartment is in the perfect location, right on a canal in the charming Jordaan neighborhood. It’s just steps away from the Anne Frank House and fantastic boutique shops and great restaurants.
The check-in process was easy and the owners were available if needed. They even arranged a car to the airport for us. The apartment was clean and everything you might need was there, including extra umbrellas and lots of guide books. I would highly recommend staying here!
Short stay in Amsterdam
Great location...perfect for a family of 4
Perfect spot in Amsterdam
It was even better than we hoped for. Location was amazing, right on the best canal, close to everything! The flat is wonderful and feels like you are at home. It was perfect. Thank you!
This property was clean, decorated sweetly, and in the best location. It had a great view of the canal and convenient to many attractions. Our hosts were amazingly welcoming and responsive to questions. We would recommend this location highly. We can’t wait to go back ourselves some day!
Charming Amsterdam Stay
It would be impossible to find a more charming and welcoming option for an Amsterdam stay. Cido and Rob are gracious hosts who offer their guests a base that is exceptionally well stocked with the comforts of home as well as reading materials to orient to Amsterdam. The apartment on a canal in lively, colorful Jordan which offers exceptional options for dining and entertainment, including local markets. The only drawback are the three flights of steep stairs leading to the apartment. I mention this as a consideration for those who may be traveling with heavy baggage.
Many good reviews for this property so will not repeat as we found prior reviews accurate on size, condition and views from this flat. Pay attention to comments on stairs - they could be an issue for some. We are both 67 and in decent shape. We got two 45# bags up 3 narrow flights and used the stairs 3-5 times per day for a week with no problems.
Owner were out of the country visiting a parent while we were there so all communication was via email which worked fine - for most things. Neighborhood around the flat is spectacular, especially the Saturday market directly across the canal. Tram is a few blocks over but we walked to museums and most other locations. I would suggest using a cab from the central train station if you have luggage of any size. We used the Taxi TCA app and got a flat rate just like Uber.
FYI - this summer there are special exhibits at both major art museums. Order tickets ahead online. Same for Ann Frank house. We saw many disappointed people at all three locations.
