De Pijp, known as Amsterdam's Quartier Latin, situated in the southern part of Amsterdam and a short tram ride away from the bustle in the streets of central Amsterdam, is one of the most cosmopolitan and vibrant districts of Amsterdam. The inhabitants, the narrow streets, the many cafes and restaurants and the atmosphere of De Pijp are all reminiscent of the famous Parisian students' quarter. If this neighborhood appeals to you, and you want to stay in a modern but very comfortable apartment in the heart of the pijp, this is the place to stay for you!
THE BEST PARK RIGHT NEXT DOOR: The Sarphatipark is a lovely park in the heart of the pijp -- if it is nice weather, you will want to picnic in this park!
take tram 16 or 24 from Central Station -- the apartment is a 2 minute walk to the nearest tram station and from there you will be at Dam Square within 7 minutes.

The apartment had a spacious living room with a small balcony on the second floor for us to relax on. The main bedroom was slightly open however it was very spacious and comfortable. Overall everyone enjoyed the stay and I would recommend.
The flat was clean and beautiful and in a lovely part of town. Definitely recommend!
The apartment in my opinion is the best location you could be in Amsterdam - 3 minute walk to daily market, grocery store, ethnic restaurants, and more yet very quiet at night for sleeping.
The location was also very convenient for business - halfway between the RAI conference center and the city center so we could enjoy walking to both.
We were provided with 2 sets of keys which made it easy to do my own thing while my friend did his. Also appreciated the complimentary museum passes.
Living room and kitchen setup were pleasant and internet super fast (38mpbs on average). Ended up being perfect place for our week in Amsterdam.
Nous avons été très bien reçu par Fred, qui nous attendais au bas de l'appartement, accès très simple en tram
appartement propre, calme, très bien ensoleillé, et une vue sur un espace vert (2 terrasses), les photos correspondaient bien au meublé loué.
Situé à seulement 2.5 km du centre ville

Very nice place, really nice area, everything worked perfect and easily, we really can recommend the place :)

About the Host, Fred
I am a 15 year resident of Amsterdam, after moving here from the Boston area to discover my dutch roots. I have come to love my city, and it's hidden charms, and am frequently on the move. My sport and my passion is ultimate frisbee, and I spend a great deal of my time organizing one of the world's biggest and baddest ultimate frisbee tournaments. I am the type of host that likes to get involved when you need some guidance or company, and leave you to it when you want to be the intrepid explorer. Happy trails!
