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.

Nous étions 3 couples d'amis et avons passé trois nuits dans ce très bel appartement extrêmement bien situé. (De Pijp est vraiment un super quartier) L'accueil et les conseils de Fred, Wietske (et de Shai !) ont été très appréciés. L'appartement est très sympa et confortable. Il est surtout très bien aménagé et très propre !
Les bonus : la bouteille de vin, les conseils, les pass pour les musées, la propreté de l'appartement et les couchages qui sont confortables.
De plus le Check in et Check out se sont super bien passés avec des interlocuteurs disponibles et à l'heure. Si je reviens a Amsterdam je contacte à nouveau Fred et Wietske !
We loved staying at this apartment in de Pijp! It was a good location and felt like a very safe area. The apartment comfortably accommodated 6 of us (all adults) and we had no complaints at all. The neighborhood had many restaurants/bars, bakeries, a wine/liquor store, and even a Starbucks nearby which was really nice! Also there is an outdoor street market set up on Saturdays with lots of fresh produce, food, souvenirs and things which we loved and it was only a 5 min walk from the apartment! Fred and Wietske helped with arranging airport transportation and greeted us when we arrived to the apartment. There are local tram stops nearby or it is easy to walk many places. I highly recommend Fres and Wietske as a host and recommend staying at this apartment!
We had a wonderful experience staying at this 2 floor apt. The museum passes, wine and snacks were nice and appreciated. The recommended car service was very useful. Its a great neighborhood and accessible.
L'appartement était conforme au descriptif, très agréable et très bien situé. L'accueil par Fred était impeccable et très efficace.
Très bon séjour à Amsterdam dans cet appartement.
Le lit de la petite chambre est petit pour deux personnes.
Wietske met us up at the apartment and showed us around. Super friendly and accommodating. We had some troubles with the door the first day and help was there just 10 minutes later.
The apartment was gorgeous. Everything was in order, it was clean and almost everything needed was provided. The neighborhood is great. It's a hipster area with lots of good restaurants, bars and coffee shops. Really good vibe.
Some Great apartment, good neighborhood and friendly hosts. ++Would rent again.

About the Host, Fred & Wietske
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!
