Bees Studio is in the PERFECT location in the heart of Amsterdam!
Bees Studio is located close to Central Station, within a few minutes easy walking distance from Dam Square and literally around the corner from not only Anne Frank House but also the liveliness of the JORDAAN area.

The Jordaan is famous for its cosy bars, restaurants from every corner of the world, art galleries and great variety of quaint shops. Bees Studio is situated in a beautiful canal house from 1700 on one of the most romantic and tranquil canals of Amsterdam: the Leliegracht. Here you can still experience the feeling of the old Amsterdam as horse-drawn carriages pass you by along the beautiful Leliegracht while a variety of pleasure boats are enjoying the stunning views along the canals. All the important tourist attractions are either within easy walking or cycling distance or just a short tram ride away! You can also find your way by the Amsterdam canals: the Canal Bus stops just around the corner on the Keizersgracht and on the Prinsengracht and will take you to all the major attractions of Amsterdam.

On the one hand, experience the luxurious comfort and relaxation of your private studio in this beautiful canal house with all the tranquillity of the Leliegracht. On the other hand, enjoy all the liveliness of the Jordaan and the city centre at your fingertips within minutes!

Bees Studio offers a beautifully renovated studio apartment with all modern comforts in a spacious bedroom with a very comfortable twin or king size bed and your private bathroom, toilet and kitchen. The kitchen contains a fridge, microwave, small cooker and of course coffee and tea making facilities. The fridge will be well-stocked, including fine products from the nearby local (farmers') markets held on Saturday and Monday, for your own self-service breakfast which is included in the room rate. Upon request you will be served with a home cooked breakfast of your choice for a small fee!

Furthermore, you will find a cable TV, a DVD player, a writing table with several chairs, free wifi use, a radio alarm clock and a hairdryer. Your host will be ever so happy to give you all the tourist advice you may need and make your stay in this very special city of Amsterdam as comfortable as you could wish for! We speak several foreign languages.

We require a minimum stay of 2 nights. Bees Studio has a no smoking policy. Payment should be made in cash upon arrival. The studio rate is excluding 5% Tourist tax.

Please NOTE: during special holiday periods, for example Easter, Queens Day celebrations (the weekend of April 30), Ascension and Pentecost weekends a minimum stay of 3 nights is required!
