Building info

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.

Neighbourhood Info

Tucked away to the northwest of Central Station lies the Zeeheldenbuurt. Named after great Dutch seafarers, this is a part of town you won’t find in many tourist guides. Not yet, that is. It’s a true residents neighbourhood with lots of local restaurants and coffee shops. Watch the ships sail by on the river IJ, jump on a bike and visit the monthly Sunday Market in the nearby Westerpark or catch an art house movie in Amsterdam’s oldest and oh so charming movie theatre The Movies. Leave the city guide at home and wander through the streets as if you always have.

Welcome to the Neighbourhood

Stylish and modern, the Yays Zoutkeetsgracht Apartments are beautifully located in an exclusive area. The Western Isles are a living museum, once home to ship works and the West India Trading Company's warehouses, which buzzed with activity in the early 17th century. Nowadays the district is a world unto itself, cut through with historical canals and linked with small drawbridges.
