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!
Accueil et chambre très agréable, dans un bon quartier. Tout à fait conforme à la description et très propre.
Nice room!!!!!! But be careful of mosquitos....anyway the room is big and clean!
Iris is an incredile lady who lives just next door with her children if you needed anything. She was helpful and provided us with a map that was more comprehensive than the one from I Amsterdam. She also spent time to share with us the things to do in Amsterdam when we first got there.
At the end of our three-night stay, Iris was so kind to even give us a box of chocolates as a parting gift (she wanted to give us wine but we werent fans of alcohol)
We loved our first-time experience in Amsterdam, and we could say that this is one of the best cities to go to in Europe. Iris helped to create this wonderful experience as well.
Amazing place to stay!! Iris was great and gave us lots of information of places to see and eat and advised us on what transport to get. The room was beautiful, really cute and relaxing. We only stayed for one night but it was perfect for what we wanted and we would have stayed longer if we could. Definitely recommend this if you're doing a tour around Amsterdam and want somewhere pleasant to stay for a good pricce and good location
Iris was a great host. She was very friendly and helpful, offering advice on where to eat or drink in the neighborhood .
The room was very confortable , whit everything you need for the stay (fidge, coffee machine..), the bathroom was big and spacious.
The location is close by the city center, walking distance from all the points of interest, and if you don’t want to walk you can take the tram that has a stop near the house.
We had a wonderful stay. Will absolutely recommend the place.

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.
