Zoutkeetsgracht
Amsterdam

Zoutkeetsgracht

In the 18th century, Amsterdam was known as the world’s central warehouse. Part of this heritage is the Zoutkeetsgracht, which was named after its warehouses used for storing and processing salt. To this day, no other European city boasts so many historic warehouses, most of them converted into apartments. Yays’ Zoutkeetsgracht location which now offers 31 apartments – around the corner from lively Westerpark - is no exception, except that it’s exceptionally amazing of course.

Bickersgracht

Once a forgotten piece of Amsterdam built in 1631 by merchant Jan Bicker, today Bickerseiland is one of the city’s most sought-after neighbourhoods. Yays Bickersgracht is located right on the water’s edge and a stone’s throw away from the bustling Haarlemmerdijk with its many shops and restaurants and the iconic Jordaan area. We suggest you download the song ‘Aan de Amsterdamse Grachten’. Believe us when we say it will make a fitting theme song for your stay.

The Yays - Crane Apartment

Not too long ago, the KNSM Island was a place of industry, lined with giant harbour cranes loading cargo ships from all around the world. Today, the cargo ships have made way for leisure boats and the cranes for art galleries, creative studios and unique architecture. The Figee Crane 2868 still stands tall on the quay, as a proud memento of the borough’s dockland heritage. Converted into a three-storey boutique apartment with a view as rich as its past, The Yays - Crane Apartment is an extraordinary haven for an unforgettable Amsterdam experience.
