About This Listing
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 Sarphatipark.
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 brewery. This area is more Amsterdam alike than the city center. This neighborhood is more working class and locals hangout.
The room is very centrally 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 Utrechtsestraat, crossing all the canals heading towards Kalverstraat, the biggest shopping street in town.
Complete downtown area is doable by foot, 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 where 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.
The environment is important to me! I use eco-friendly cleaning products for the room and laundry; solar panels reduce our power use; organic shower gel and soap; even the latest washing machine to use minimum water and detergent.
Guests will have access to their own private room and private bathroom shower room with toilet. Also provided is a mini fridge, microwave and cutlery. Towels and bedding is included.
Interaction with Guests
Guests can always ask me anything, anytime. I am always around or easy to reach by phone or email.
Lots off public transportation around my house. Two city trams 3 and 4 will take you everywhere down the city center. Also metro station, Amstel station and Central station are easy to reach from here.
Other Things to Note
The twoo stairs to my room are steep!
Do not throw anything else than toilet paper in the toilet please!
The flat was very clean & spacious compared to typical European apartments, it had everything we needed. It was in a great location; grocery stores around the corner, tram stop very close and feels like a nice family neighborhood. Restaurants are a little bit more of a walk, as well as the museums, but definitely do-able by foot. Iris was very welcoming and took the time to help us get acquainted with what to do in Amsterdam. She even helped me with my 45 lb. suitcase which was very difficult to lift up the two extremely steep staircases! The room is very bright as you can see in the pictures, so you may need an eye mask if you want to sleep in.
Todo muy limpio en la habitación, iris nos atendió bien y nos trato de ayudar en lo que pudo. El cuarto esta a unos 20 minutos a pie del centro de amsterdam, en ese trayecto se pueden ver varios lugares interesantes, claro que hay la opción del metro que te lleva en 10.
Eso si .lleguen a amsterdam con la dirección en la mano porque el lugar no está exactamente a la vuelta de la estación amsterdam central que es el centro de la ciudad, para llegar por primera vez tendrán que tomar metro que los deja a 3 cuadras de la casa.
Si tuviera que criticar algo simplemente seria la verticalidad de las escaleras, para mi la relación precio- servicio cubrió mis expectativas.
very beautiful room with a big comfortable bed. We enjoy the stay very much. Iris is very nice and give us tips of amsterdam. It really helps.
Une chambre charmante, propre, vraiment vaste et bien placée, conformément a la description. De nombreux guides étaient a notre disposition pour aiguiller notre visite. De plus nous étions supposés quitter le logement a 11 heures mais ne l'avons fait qu'a midi et Iris s'est montré très compréhensive à notre égard. Un BnB que je recommande !

About the Host, Iris
I am born and raised in Amsterdam. Next to Amsterdam I've lived in Cincinnati, Ohio (U.S.A) and at the countryside of France at the Dordogne. I used to travel a lot in the U.S.A and love cities like New York, Washington DC and Chicago. Bryce canyon was the most spectacular park I ever visited. I live alone with my two teenage daughters. For a while I went to the Art Academy, but quit because I preferred to become a dj. Finally I am working in hospitality for about 20 years. I wrote business plans for my own techno program for a nightclub a saladebar and 100% organic cafetaria. My b&b is an eco friendly one, it means I care about the environment and only offer and use organic products. I like to talk with my guests about Amsterdam or my biggest hobby electronic music.
