The House & Neighbourhood
There are places you don’t stumble upon just by chance. Undreamt places, concealed somewhere at the other end of the world or in the heart of a city called Amsterdam. A warm and welcoming home with appreciable discretion and new experiences to indulge.
The Vanguard is hidden in the vibrant heart of the city which is part of the Unesco World Heritage. You won't find any place where you are better connected with the canals. Situated at the corner of the illustrious Herengracht and Reguliersgracht and just a few steps away from the Rembrandt square, the house is pioneering at the boundaries of a canal boutique B&B. Our 17th century merchant’s house is fully restored to its original grandeur. We offer a fresh take on the design of the traditional canal house, which interior is completely styled by Robert Broekema of Buro Robert Broekema. Our rooms are residential in feel and decorated with hand-selected furniture and matching design and artwork as well as family heirlooms. The two boutique bedrooms are situated on the second and top floor of the house.
The house overlooks the famous and lively Rembrandt square, but is situated on the quiet side of the canal. You should not feel obliged to join Amsterdam nightlife. You will find Amsterdams most culinary hotspots around the corner in the Utrechtsestraat, as well as a variety of design shops and concept stores. The city's cultural highlights are all within a 10-minute walk.
So come and stay in Amsterdams best hidden secret, located in the famous canal district!
