    Location. Location. Location. The Vanguard is located between the mansions on the Golden Bend and the Waldorf Astoria at the intersection of the Herengracht and Reguliersgracht canals from which you can see a total of 15 bridges in different directions. It is one of the most romantic locations in Amsterdam as confirmed by the parade of couples and canal boats pausing for photo ops. On top of that, the custom made breakfasts prepared by former restaurant owner/caterer Cynthia Mertens will get you lovebirds out of bed and ready to tackle the sights of Amsterdam.

    The layout of the second floor apartment could have been made better by making the entry to the front room instead of the bedroom. This likely was not done due to the elevated floor in the front room. The result is the water closet and very large bathroom being partitioned off from the joined bedroom and front room. And, of course, since it is an Amsterdam canal home, there are the steep narrow spiral stairs to deal with.

    The location was excellent and the rooms were large and very interesting. Special effort was made to accommodate our schedule which was outside the normal check-in and check-out times. Breakfasts were very well presented and the owner provided interesting conversation and perfect tips on restaurants and things to do.

    The steep spiral steps to the rooms were a bit of a challenge. I would suggest if you have any difficulties with steps that you carefully consider if this is appropriate. We did manage but carrying luggage up the 40 plus steps was a workout. The amazing room at the top and the views made it worth the effort.
