Beautiful authentic room with private bathroom for rent in De Pijp.
The room has it's own entrance and is located on the second floor of a very authentic, old house. The street is next to the beautiful Amstel river and the pretty Sarphati park.
The Pijp is known for it's lively, artistic atmosphere. Around here are many restaurants, cafes, galleries and lively daily market Albert Cuyp. Main attraction is the Heineken manufacturer. This area is more Amsterdam alike than the city center.This neighborhood is more working class and locals hangout.
The room is very central located in between the museum district (which is only a 15 min walk away) and the Amsterdam city center (which is in the other direction 10 min away from here).
The city center starts at the Utrechtse straat, crossing all the canals heading towards Kalverstraat, the biggest shopping street in town.
Complete downtown area is doable by feet, or take the tram 4 or 3 which will take you anywhere downtown or train station to transfer for the train to the airport.
I would be happy helping you out were to go based on your personal interest, or sending you any information about concerts, theater or give you other suggestions which make your stay more convenient.
Guests will have access to there own private room and private bathroom.
Lost off public transportation around my house. Two city trams 3 and 4 will bring you everywere down the city center. Also metro station, Amstel station and Central station are easy to reach from here.
Me and my boyfriend spent two nights at Iris'. Really beautiful and spacious room and toilet, everything very clean and nicely decorated. Great windows to feel the sun (we were lucky) coming inside. You have a microwave and some basic staff (dishes, cups) in case you want to have breakfast or a simple lunch/dinner in the place.
The location was great for us: you have a tram stop at 5 minutes (number 4, directly to the train station, passing through the Rembrandt Square and Dam Square, central points of the city) but we walked all the time, even from the train station (35/40 min from the station, 20 min from the center of the city). You also have some supermarkets close by, and the amazing Albert Cuyp open air market is at 8 minutes on foot.
Iris was a very nice host, providing us with a map and a guide of the city and being open to keep my lugagge till the moment where I left the city, at the end of the day.
I really recommend the place.
The room is beautifull! The neighbourhood is quiet and yet near everything!! There are shops and transport to everywhere you wanna go... Also is very near to a big local market.. Besides all this Iris was a great host! She borrowed us a map and several guides! You should rent this room!
We enjoyed our stay very much. The room is spacious and quiet (at least when there's no construction noise outside). The bed was wonderful--warm and comfy, and Iris provides a great assortment of tea. I loved the De Pijp district and the restaurants/bars within walking distance, especially in back of the Heinecken museum. (And thanks for the map, Iris!) We would definitely stay here again.
We had a great time, very nice apartment - thanks!
Hab mich sehr wohlgefühlt in der kleinen Wohnung. Iris war nicht da, aber Kimo hat mich sehr freundlich empfangen und war mir stets behilflich, wenn ich was brauchte. Das Zimmer ist gemütlich, das Badezimmer sehr grosszügig. Die vielen Teebeutels und Wasserkocher etc. hab ich geschätzt. Die Lage der Wohnung ist prima.Nahe des Zentrums und doch mittendrin im Alltag des Lebens in der Pijp. Beeindruckend auch, wie klein die Wohnungsgrundrisse sind, wie improvisiert die technischen Installationen, wie extrem steil die Treppen sind. Ich würde nächstes Mal wieder kommen. Bedankt.
A really nice and quiet room. Very clean. Iris seems to be very nice. She wasn't there the day we arrived, but her sister opened the door for us even though we arrived really late in the night. Downtown Amstedam is in walking distance and it's a nice walk with a lot of cafes and shops on the way.
I can fully recommed that room and would book again any time!
Goede service, zeer toegankelijk in contact. Iris zelf was er niet, heeft goede gastheer Hein ingeschakeld. Goed bed, uitstekende locatie. Juiste prijs/kwaliteit.
Everything was fine. Good to reach by public transport (Tram 4 from Central Station), nice and quiet accomodation. (The stairs are typically for Holland...) Hein was a good host and explained everything very well.

Subject: Your stay,
Hope you about to get in now! Just wanted to let you know how sorry i am about the checking in time and the bad service you had today! I was sure things would work out fine but Hein ( did not tell me he had a differend schedule. Anyway, my father was upstairs did not hear the door ringing. Anyway, i will take full responsability myself and pay you back all the money you payed for this night.
I will deposit it tomorrow, thru airbnb. Hopefully you are in the house now. I have to say, i really feel bad about this situation. If there is anything i can do more, please let me know.
With kind regards,
As you can see, I am waiting to hear from you. Although this experience should not have happened and could have been really disastrous, Iris is taking responsibility and doing the right thing.
I am not amused you drop a personal massage from me to you at this public review site! Also keep your personal messaging to me threw airbnb messaging, like all my quests and like described in airbnb/ my house rules. Sandra gave me a last minute (same morning ) in check time, but was not able to pick up a phone (a local number) or read any off my messages written to her threw airbnb messaging. So i called her husband all the way in America (five minutes after check in time), to explain her my father did not hear the door bell ( I was on my holiday but just checked if everything went well with the check in) but he was at home. Anyway, i will of course pay her back the money.
Very nice contact & host.
Clean & nice housing.
Perfect location if you visit A'dam.
Would book anytime again!
