History

Prinsengracht 717 was inhabited for many years by a prosperous sugar trader. The rear part of the house was built first and dates from the 17th century, but in 1810 the property was extended towards the Prinsengracht to demonstrate the owner's wealth to his fellow citizens.

At that time, the rear of the house still served as a 'sugar mill'. The neighbouring properties were also under the trader's ownership and served as depositories for the raw and refined sugar.

During much of the 20th century the property fulfilled a social purpose, after which in 1996-97 it was completely restored Hotel Seven One Seven was opened.
