Feel very at home on your stay in Amsterdam at this great apartment!
The apartment in a typical Amsterdam mansion is situated in a quiet street in the middle of 'De Pijp'. With the sarphati-parc and the Albert Cuyp at a walking distance you're surrounded by little coffeeplaces, galeries, shops & bars. Walking around the neighbourhood is a great experience on it's own, but other parts of the city are easy reachable too. Within 100 meters distance you'll find a tram that leads you straight to:
- Dam Square & Central Station
- The canals
- Museum Square
The apartment itself is an ideal stay for two people. It's 52 m2, light and has a balcony with sun from 11 o clock untill 6 (if there is any sun:-)). It's got a comfy bed for two, a kitchen with basic cooking equipment, a bathroom with shower, a cosy living room and access to wifi.
We're always within reach. We love to show you around and make you feel at home, so you can enjoy our lovely city like we do!
Suzanne & Jaap
Except for the very small bathroom, which is not advised if you're claustrophobic (none of us are), we have absolutely nothing to complaint.
Everything is as described and if you're lucky to catch some sunny days you'll love the morning coffee in the balcony, as the sun directly hits it almost from sunrise until sunset.
As for the hosts themselves, we only met Suzanne which was very helpful and always interested in our tours and general welfare. Although we were quite independent in our choices, most made while planing the trip, Suzanne will leave you some notes about the best sights and places to visit, eat or drink.
She also left a very kind poscard and a bottle of wine!
About the neighborhood, exactly as described too. Very lively but yet much calmer than the centre, everything is closeby (supermarket, tram, buses, etc). Bike rental is 2min away, like 3 blocks, ridiculously close. One of the best coffeeshops IMHO is also in De Pijp, close to the market (can't remember the name sorry). It's really modern, confy and the staff was cool. Many other places will treat turists as thrash they will never see again (not only in coffeeshops), in the Pijp this never happened, people just seem to be happier there.
As we didn't get a single rainy day in 9 days (extremely lucky apparently) we just walked and biked all over the city. It's really easy to memorize the way back "home" if you stay in De Pijp.
Hope everyone else enjoys as much as we did! Thanks again Suzanne!
Nao nos encontramos pessoalmente com o anfitriao no momento da chegada mas havia um simpatico cartao de boas vindas, flores e vinho, alem de documento impresso contendo todas as informacoes sobre o bairro, tranporte publico, restaurantes, supermercados,etc.
O espaco condiz com o anunciado, as fotos refletem a realidade, amplo, arejado, com bom sistema de aquecimento, cozinha equipada. Apenas sentimos falta de um lavatorio e um pouco mais de espaco no banheiro.
O bairro e muito bom, residencial, tranquilo, de facil acesso a transporte publico, bem servido de restaurantes, lavanderias, padarias e supermercados nas (website hidden) certeza se voltarmos a Amsterdam nos hospedaremos aqui novamente.
My friend and I had a booking at a different apartment, that unfortunately was cancelled very last minute. I sent a note to Suzanne, letting her know the problem I had come up with, and within a few hours she replied letting us know the place was available - she picked up this message when she was on vacation, probably hearing the anxiety in my note! Suzanne's place is really beautiful, exactly as the pictures show, and in an amazing neighbourhood - one I would live in, with cool shops, restaurants, and cafe's.
We arrived a bit earlier than the posted "check-in" time, but Suzanne was very accommodating. There was a bottle of wine, and pages of suggested places to visit! Only small draw backs were the bathroom is a bit tight, and the stairwell to get to the apartment was a bit steep. But neither of these items bothered us at all, in fact it added to the adventure of the whole experience.
I would definitely recommend this place, the location, apartment, and host were all fantastic.
Ottima e singolare accoglienza, posto situato a buona distanza dal centro (circa 30 min da piazza Dam), pulito e luminoso.
Suzanne molto disponibile e cordiale. Da provare!
This place is cool., i lived here for 4 days during my trip in Amsterdam, and it was a pleasure. Love the bed and the location, very convenient for public transportation and walking distance to the AC Market.
Suzanne is a nice host, she helped me changed the booking fast and nicely. Havent had a chance to meet her but can imagine how charm she is, as well as her BF Jaap.
Thank you and see you soon,
Very clean, spacious, bright and perfectly located. Great hosts!
I only recently moved to Amsterdam in order to begin my new job and to find a place for my own. Thus, I can already tell that Suzanne's airbnb appartement is the perfect flat for visitors with the intention of a longer stay. The flat is spacious, the bed is very comfortable, wifi connection quick and the kitchen has all the equipment you may require for preparing your own meals.
Furthermore, the location is also perfect for tourists - the Museumsplein (Van Gogh, Rijksmuseum, etc) is within short distance and there are several trams close by so you can easily reach the city centre. Furthermore, supermarkets, the Albert Cuyp market and trendy restaurants and bars are within 5 minutes walking distance.
Judging only from the facilities and the appartement I can therefore say that I felt very comfortable and home-like during my stay. Suzanne and her husband Jaap had their share in getting this feeling. They reacted very quickly to any enquiries and gave me plenty of advice concerning what-to-do, where-to-go and even offered support in my flat-hunt. A big thank you to my hosts!
Our stay in the apartment was great! It is in a good location- a nice 30 min walk away from Dam Square and lots of other places to eat and shop close by. The space was very clean and had everything we needed as well as a comfy bed.
Suzanne and her partner were very welcoming and replied quickly to any queries I had to find things nearby. The neighbourhood is nice and there are a couple of bars very close by. Public transport to Amsterdam Central is also very easy.
We would recommend this apartment!
Hi, my name is Suzanne. Nice to meet you:-)
My boyfriend Jaap and I live in a great apartment in De Pijp in Amsterdam. A beautiful place with lots of space we'd love to share with fellow travelers.
I work in Amsterdam as a marketeer at 1%CLUB (a little innovative NGO). We're both big fans of traveling & citytrips. Always in search of the 'local' perspective, whether it's Birma or Paris.
As your host I would love to tell you all about the great bars, restaurants, little coffeeplaces & local festivals you really shouldn't miss:-). We live in the same building as the apartment on AirBNB, so we're always near to answer your questions.
